I love this whole series. I was waiting for so long in the series for this one BIG thing to happen... and finally in this book I got what I was after. I love all of the Morganville vamp books, you should read them. They've got a different feel to them then any vamp books I've read and I am addicted. I've been writing reviews for all the books so I don't want to write just the same things over... but these are great and any supernatural/romance reading junky will like them I'm sure.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Claire and her friends are divided over the recent events in Morganville. Shane's locked up with his father. Michael's working for the evil Bishop along with Claire - while Eve is furious with both of them.

Claire needs to believe the Myrnin has a plan, but she's not sure she can actually trust him.

Bishop is running the town and pushing it close to ruin. He doesn't care about any of the citizens. Claire realizes that Amelie hasn't gone into the shadows and disappeared. Instead, she's been working to move the townspeople out of danger and away from Morganville.

With the whole town gearing up for a fight, who will be left standing and what alliances will be broken/formed?

THE MORGANVILLE VAMPIRES series is a fast-paced, addicting read that draws readers in and never lets them go, and CARPE CORPUS is a great addition to the line.

Can Claire and her friends save Morganville? June 2 2009
By R. Kyle - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Carpe Corpus" opens on Claire Danvers's 17th birthday. Her parents give her a necklace and a dress, but all she really wants is to see Shane Collins and she's willing to risk her life asking Bishop, the ancient vampire who's captured Morganville, to do so.

The four inhabitants of the Glass House are all scattered. Claire's living with her parents and serving Bishop against her will. Shane's caged with his vampire hating father, Frank. Michael looks like he's in Bishop's thrall. Eve is the lone inhabitant of the Glass House and she's trying to keep the place for her four friends.

But Amelie's, the former vampire ruler of Morganville, is back and things are not quite as they seem. Neither Ancient Myrnin or Michael is in thrall to Bishop after all. It's up to Claire to help get enough serum to heal the vampires of Morganville of the Alzheimer-like illness that Bishop probably gave them so they can get back their town.

"Carpe Corpus" is a tightly paced story that will keep you glued to the pages. Unfortunately, it ends all too soon like every Caine novel. If you're a fan of Morganville, you're going to love this. If you've just come to Caine via "Twlight," the same. You may want to start with Book One--Glass House, but you don't have to.

4 Stars for Carpe Corpus By: Rachel Caine March 7 2010
By L. Reeves - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Carpe Corpus begins soon after Lord of Misrule ends. Claire's stuck in the middle and forced to work on the wrong side, Bishop's side. Amelie has vanished, thanks to Myrnin, who just happens to be sitting pretty right next to.... you guessed it, Bishop. Michael was forced to stand at, yep... right again Bishop's side. Eve's pretty upset with everyone, including Claire and Shane's stuck in jail with his dear old dad. Did I paint you a pretty picture yet?

If you thought living in and with a town run by vampires couldn't get any worse, well you're wrong there. Things are about to bubble over for everyone. Caine continue to work her magic in this new installment. She's good at leaving me guessing as to what's lurking around the next page.

One highlight was the introduction of Ada. At first I thought, oh right, yeah come on already! However, since I really do enjoy this series I kept reading and found that her character was kind of a creepy perfection that fit right in with, well everyone and everything. I mean why not have... wait, I won't tell you just who or what she is. I don't want to ruin it for anyone who's yet to read.

It was nice to see all the characters growing and changing. The new trials Claire and her friends - human and vampire will face. Oh, let's not forget we get to see the true Myrnin, who gets cured in this book. I'm looking forward to seeing more of him in the future.

The book ends on a happy note. No cliffhangers like in previous books. I for one don't think things will stay too cheery for to long, I mean we are talking about Morganville.

I have the next book - Fade Out ready to read, and then Kiss of Death on order. If you're new to this series, be sure to start at the beginning - Glass Houses. Enjoy! (...)

Nice paranormal fiction for younger readers July 25 2009
By Steven A. Peterson - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This represents Book Six in "The Morganville Vampires" series. Should you read the other volumes before this one? I didn't feel that it took too much to know what was going on. The author, Rachel Caine, provided context for this book so that the naïve reader of Book Six could navigate the characters pretty handily.

Morganville represents a community that had come under the rule of vampires. One rather poignant fact--the vampires are suffering from some sort of illness, and the population of vampires has begun to decline as a result. For awhile, their power over the citizenry was certainly authoritarian, but vaguely tolerable (at least as I read this volume). However, something like a coup d'état has taken place and the nasty vampire, Bishop, has taken over. He has imprisoned people, including the main character's (a 17 year old named Claire) boyfriend, Shane.

Claire tries to figure out how to save her young man (it looks pretty bleak for Shane's future). She wonders why the other vampires seem to have so supinely bowed to Bishop. As the novel unfolds, though, we see that there is resistance among the vampires, with a countercoup likely to take place. The slow development of events adds a nice element to this story, as the plot moved in not always predictable ways. Tension does build.

Some of the features that readers of the series might find interesting (or not!)--the consummation of Claire's relationship with Shane, addressing the disease afflicting the vampires, the changing relationship of vampires to humans in Morganville. . . .

For me, this book does not resonate. But I doubt that the book is pitched at someone like me. Youthful readers interested in paranormal fiction, I think, would find this a very nice read. For them, this book would "hit the spot." So, I give this 4 stars for the likeliest audience (for me, I would rate it lower, but that's unfair to the author!).

(un)Happy Birthday June 9 2009
By BBMoreB - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book starts off normal enough; at least for Morganville, but then wow by the end of chapter 5 I was thinking this has to be the end - like the author was grasping for shocking plot lines. This book went off the deep end and I thought can this book be redeemed. But true to her form, Rachel Caine pulled off enough other good stuff to offset her moment of crazy. This was the first book in this series to not end with a cliff hanger. I would be worried if there was not already a next book scheduled to be released. This book wraps up every outstanding storyline - I could think of. Luckily, I only have to wait until November 3rd for the next installment, Fade Out (Morganville Vampires, Book 7).

Another great installment! June 30 2014
By pinkspo0n - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Another great installment! I really was surprised at how this one turned out. In the grips of an evil vampire invasion, I thought Amelie had really lost her control over Morganville! I was so annoyed throughout part of this book because everything that was happening seemed to go against what I wanted to happen. Somehow things still worked out in such a way that I was happy!

This series is only getting better and better. I wish I had started reading it sooner! Definitely a must read. =)
