  • Alkyoni
    Ok. Let me begin with the negative stuff because I really want to be done with it asap and then go on about how amazing this book was.We get such an awesome plot and characters, would it be too much to ask for some consistency in the world building too? At first, vampires needed an invitation to enter the Glass House. I get that. Then, the humans needed an invitation instead. I get that too. Now everybody’s strolling in and out like nobody’s ...

    4 Not All Parties Are Fun StarsAfter having to fight for their lives with crazy vampires and even crazier anti-vampire fanatics nothing should be able to scare our heroes anymore, until a strange vampire walks through their door. A vampire so bad that even the worst vampires in Morganville seem to be afraid of, one who claims to be Amelie's father. Who knew the Ice Queen actually had family that was even scarier than her?The vampire isn't alone. ...

    "Will you swear?" And Myrnin said, shockingly "I will." And he proceeded to, a string of swear words that made Claire blink. He ended with, '-frothy fool-born apple-john! Cheater of vandals and defiler of dead dogs!" and did another twirl and a bow.Well Feast of Fools, definitely isn't a filler book. Although slow in the middle, it was probably the best one yet! Do these just keep getting better? Hmm...interesting.I loved every minute of this one...

    Feast of Fools is the fourth installment of the Morganville Vampire Series, and it was a bit slower placed than the first three books. However, it did deliver an explosive ending with a signature series cliffhanger. I’ve become vested in the main characters of this series, which includes Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael. I like how their actions and loyalty toward each other remains consistent from book to book, and it was nice to see Shane begin...

    As these books continue, I find I am less and less concerned with what will happen to Morganville and its' inhabitants and more concerned with when Shane is going to break and finally "do" Claire. Not that I condone that sort of thing, but it's a book and seriously, there is only so much tension you can build in a book before it starts to get repetitive. So, my unauthorized and likely, unwanted, opinion is, let it happen or kill Shane off. Finall...

    “Crap, are you thinking what I'm thinking?""I'm thinking we have about fifteen vampires and no blood," Claire said. "Is that it?""No, I was thinking we're out of chips. Of course that's what I was thinking.”(view spoiler)[Feast of Fools was a pretty good book. Pretty sure the only character I really hated was Ysandre. The bitch needed to die a very painful death. So I approve of the holy water being dumped on her.Bitchy Monica was back but th...
  • Celeste
    This was definitely the most exciting installment thus far. A new threat comes to Morganville. An outside threat. Enemies become allies as the town bands together to protect itself. We get more of Myrnin, which made me happy. I love Claire’s development, and Shane is growing on me. The relationships in the series really make the story, which is why I was so happy to see those on opposite sides banding together in the face of a common enemy. As ...
  • Andrea
    The stakes have been raised and I mean that pun intended! Claire is slowly becoming more of a badass rather than a scared little girl. She can't do much against the vamps but she manages for the most part. I have a feeling she will be very important for the rest of the series. Seems like overall the series is picking up. I still have minor annoyances usually revolving around Shane being a dumbass, but I'm really enjoying this series.
  • Karin
    Rachel Caine has done it again. She starts FEAST OF FOOLS like she does the other books in the Morgenville Vampire series - right in the middle of the action which grabs you by the hair, yanks you in, and won’t let go until the story is over.At the end of MIDNIGHT ALLEY, the foursome living in the Glass House gets some unexpected visitors in the form of Claire’s parents and (in Buffy the Vampire Slayer Speak) the Big Bad - Mr. Bishop A.K.A. A...

    one of the best in the series loved the whole bishop scene a truly brilliant villian
  • Carrie
    Feast of Fools is the fourth book in the Morganville Vampire series. Again it picks up right where the previous book had left off. Claire's parents have moved to town adding more people for Claire to worry about. A few new vampires have shown up that don't seem to have the best of intentions. With all books in a series I try to keep my reviews a bit vague as I don't want to add much in that would spoil things but with this particular book there w...
  • Anzu The Great Destroyer
    No review for this one because I am le lazy. Great book, this series keeps getting better and better. I am pleased. Now off to read the fifth one.

    I am so in love with this series.

    Feast of Fools starts off where Midnight Alley left off. The Glass house has been taken over by a vampire, Mr. Bishop, who claims to be Amelie's father. He has big plans for the humans and vampires of Morganville, and he, along with his evil cronies, will do whatever it takes to put them into motion. It all comes down to the masked ball where the vampires bring human dates. Who will pledge loyalty to Mr. Bishop, and who will stick with Amelie?I r...
  • Heather
    I am enjoying this series...it's not the most fabulously written thing I've ever read, but it is entertaining, and this book was no exception. The reason that the rating is so low is that there was a MAJOR continuity issue that bugged me all the way through the book. At the end of the previous book, one of the main characters was shot. There was much discussion about his bullet wound, and the smoking hole left in the pocket of the jacket of the p...
  • Nic
    Rachel Caine hasn't let me down yet. Again another amazing installment in the Morganville Vampires Series. In the fourth book we find out more of the secrets of Morganville and find out what Bishop wants. There is never a moment of peace but that makes for one fantastic read. The characters are brilliant as always and it was good to see Myrnin was in this book. I love Claire and Shane's relationship, their moments together always bring a smile to...
  • Heather
    This is the 4th book in a YA series written by Rachel Caine (she does the Weather Warden series as well). This book has the same romantic tension between Claire and Shane- along with some sinister events happening in the town of Morganville. Morganville is a town where vampires live freely among humans- with humans being kept (for lack of a better word) by various vampires. Some are good, most are bad, and all the humans are doing is trying to su...

    I’ve been having trouble working up enthusiasm for the Morganville Vampires books, they seem to be a little hit or miss to me. After a break after the third book I did find the fourth book, Feast of Fools to be an enjoyable read. Much like the third book, this one adds a new character who brings a new element to the story, which also indicated that there is now a bigger picture forming that the series will focus on which wasn’t all that appar...

    I was a little reluctant to give 5 stars... but if I'm going to give a perfect review to any MV book thus far, it must be Feast of Fools.I mean, this book was nonstop action. I literally found every idle moment I could to crack open FoF and devour as many words as I could. Amelie's father is a mean, relentless, cold-blooded man, and will apparently stop at nothing to claim that which he wants. Watching Claire mature is something so rare in teen n...
  • Maura
    Wow I seem to be giving out Maura's Choice a lot. That's sort of funny, but really I haven't read any books so far that I haven't enjoy thoroughly. But if I have to give a 4 stars to any books in the Morganville Vampire Series, it would have to be Feast of Fools. Anyways for anyone who knows me, you'll know that my favorite book series of all time is Morganville Vampire Series. I just love all the action, sarcasm, and Rachel Caine's clever writin...

    Talk about tension! It started off tense and of course, ends on yet another cliffhanger. So much happens. I don't even know what to say. Plenty of angst all around and now, even more danger with Claire's parents in town.Truly, Morganville goes to hell in a handbasket in this volume when Amelie's Father comes to town. He's a douche. So are the vamps he brings with him. Totally hate that bitch Ysandre and her constant come-ons to Shane. Francois is...
  • Sarah
    (Source: I own a copy of this book.)This was an okay story, but I have to admit that I was bored for the majority of it.The main characters in this were all okay, although once again Claire was fairly happy to walk head-first into danger without a care. It was also a little frustrating when the gang automatically thought that Michael would be able to protect them – he’s the youngest vampire for pity’s sake!The storyline in this just didn’...
  • Siobhan
    Ah Bishop, you make things so interesting.My interest had started to wan somewhat over the last couple of books, but with the appearance of a big bad guy in town things start to spice up. This was exactly what the series needed and had it taken longer to come about I would have been extremely disappointed.For me, I view this as a real turning point for the series. Not just with characters but with there being a bigger plot at play, making it the ...

    This and my other reviews can be found at http://amethystbookwyrm.blogspot.co.uk/Claire’s parents have moved into town and want her to move in with them; however, (on top of her worrying about their safety in a place filled with vampires) she has to tell them that she wants to stay in the Glass house instead.

    "Feast," Miranda said again, "You're all fools, all fools - don't let him trick you."amazing. Like, "keep you on the edge of your seat and your pulse racing" good.I couldn't turn the pages quick enough. I absolutely devoured and LOVED this one.Shane, Claire, Michael and Eve. They can't catch a break. I can't wait for them to get some wins!
  • Rebecca McNutt
    At first glance this book looked really intriguing, but I ended up finding it rather vulgar and morbid, with unnecessary crude humor and pages full of nothing but blood and gore. Proof that anything can be published these days regardless of its content quality... :-\
