Bitter Blood by Rachel Caine

Genre:  YA Urban Fantasy
Morganville Vampires Series, Book 13

Note:  I highly recommend you read the earlier books before reading anything further.  While I don't spoil specific plots, the description is built from previous books and will spoil those.

Description (taken from Goodreads):
For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…

Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.

To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news… or worse.

So, my favorite book in this series happened two books ago.  And it seems like these books can't trump that one.  So, I'm wondering if this series is just going down for me.  Boo, I really did enjoy the beginnings of this series.

Anywho, we're in Morganville, Texas.  Welcome to the dry heat and hold onto your blood.  It's a city where vampires and humans coexist.  And after fighting the draug and winning, it seems like vampires aren't ready to go back to 'sharing' the town.  It always makes me laugh that humans actually have a chance against vampires.  Well, the humans of Morganville grew up fighting (otherwise, they would have been food).

I feel like I could have read the last 100 pages of this book and been none the wiser.  There wasn't much of a climax for me.  And the relationships were played really well.  We all know I'm not the biggest Shane fan out there; I much prefer Myrnin.

So...  Here's to hoping the next one is better.
