Review: Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine

Carpe Corpus (The Morganville Vampires #6) by Rachel Caine

In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace-until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He's kept a death grip on the town ever since. Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths. He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants-the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in his way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires ever be content to go back to the old rules, after having such a taste of power?

   I wanted to read this one because I am addicted to the series, and can't get enough right now. It is nice to be able to binge on a series and not have to worry about forgetting details and having that burning need to have the next one right that second and the let down of having to wait another year or so for the characters you have fallen in love with and the romance that has your own toes tingling. 

   It is hard to see Claire in this one because she is serving Bishop because of the magical tattoo that he gave her that compels her to obey him. She has become an understandably outcast in Morganville for those loyal to Amelie or maybe just hates Bishop. That includes Eve, which breaks her heart and mine too because I love their tight friendship. 

   Shane is captured in this one, stuck in a cell with his dad because of his ties to the anti-vampire movement his dad is in charge of. Its hard having the distance between them because I love seeing them together. 

    One good thing in this one is that Claire is turning seventeen which means that it is not illegal for her and Shane to be together once they are finally reunited. 

   The betrayals and double crosses in this one had my mind spinning, but I loved how this one ended and tied up. Though, my addiction is screaming for me to go ahead and read the next one.

Bottom Line: Loving this series, and nothing about this book changed that.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Do you think you'd have the courage or desire to join an underground movement?


  1. "The betrayals and double crosses in this one had my mind spinning, but I loved how this one ended and tied up."
    I'm having so much fun reading your reviews for this series back-to-back, and look forward to picking up this series one day myself. :)

  2. There are certainly a lot of books in this series! And glad you are able to marathon it. I am usually super slow when it comes to picking up series, so I never have to wait, really :D hehe. I would like to say I am brave enough, but that really only is something to decide if I am ever in the situation where I have to!

  3. Good job keeping up with the series! I'm struggling with binge reading right now, I don't know why. I think I may need a reading break...

  4. I'm glad you're really into this series! I wish i can pick them up again.

  5. wow another vampire book ,, i'm glad you really liking this series :D

  6. Holy geez, you are seriously KILLING Rachel Caine's series (in a good way), and making me feel bad about it STILL being on my to-read shelf. I might have joined an underground movement in my younger years, but I'm not as idealistic as I used to be, so it's hard to say. Maybe for the right cause.

  7. I bet it is nice to be able to binge read this series and not have to deal with the long waits and cliffhangers. I still hope to read it sometime.

  8. I really do need to pick up this series!

    Great review!

  9. I love this series, too, Brandi! And while I'm not completely sure if I'd have the courage, I'd definitely have the desire to join an underground movement!
    I hope you're still enjoying some quite family days.

  10. I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying this series! I've been meaning to catch up on it for so long, and your review is the reminder I need to get going on it. :-)

  11. This might have been the last one I read, it sounds pretty familiar. I'm going to have to remember to check and then try to read the books back to back, or at least close together when I catch up.

  12. I thought the parts with Claire and her parents were hilarious in this one. I love that they are so short so you get an excellent story packed in, but can jump into the next one if you're itching for more. Great review! Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  13. I love how Rachel Caine done the age limit thing with the other books, and waiting for it to be legal. Very important message right there. Glad you're loving the series! :)
