Bitter Blood by Rachel Caine

The Draug have been defeated and now there is nothing that the vampires fear. A whole new set of rules are now in effect for Morganville. Everyone must carry an ID and vampires can request to hunt humans. Needless to say this does not go over well with the humans of Morganville. Amelie no longer seeks peace between the vampires and humans. Since Michael and Eve have married the people in the Glass house are no longer protected. In fact there seems to be a target out for all of them from both humans and vampires.

Things are always strange in Morganville, but now more than ever. Amelie and Oliver now seem to be on the same side, in fact much more intimate than enemies. Hannah Moses has been removed from being the mayor. Monica is campaigning to become mayor and Shane and Claire are helping her. Myrnin seems to have disappeared. And as always is the case in Morganville things go from bad to worse very quickly.

Have you ever read a book where it becomes so stressful you have to put it down for a bit? Well that is the way I felt with Bitter Blood! I would get so stressed out over something happening that I would have to put the book down, but then I had to know what was going to happen so I would have to pick it right back up again! You would think this being the 13th book in the series that things would get a little boring or repetitive, but I have found that to not be the case. While yes, Morganville and Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve always seem to be battling one crises after another there is always enough difference and freshness to keep the reader entertained and coming back for more.
