Overview

In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have learned to live in relative peace. Still, students like Claire Danvers know that after dark, studying can take a backseat to staying alive. But the tenuous good-neighbor policy is really turned on its head with the arrival of Mr. Bishop.

Bad to the bone, the ancient old-school vampire cares nothing about harmony. Staying at the top of the food chain isn't enough. What he wants from the town's living and dead is unthinkably sinister. It's only at a formal ball attended by vampires and their human dates that Claire realizes Bishop's plan—and the elaborately evil trap he's set for the warm-blooded souls of Morganville.

    feast of great writing

    The "Morganville Vampires" books, despite their short page count ("Feast of Fools" came in at under 300 pages) manage a balance between development, plot, action, and dialogue that is rarely accomplished well even in books twice the page count. I remember a time when I feared that Claire's point of view might become tedious, that her bookishness and logical internalization might interfere with the direction of the books. Boy was I wrong, and "Feast of Fools" shows just how far young Claire has come: from a shy, reserved teenager to a genuine heroine who is smart, loyal, stands by her convictions, and yet a part of her dreads the role she's been given and wishes she could be a normal teenager. Even Eve, Michael, and Shane have grown to understand that their experiences in the town of Morganville have to be pushed aside to defeat Mr. Bishop. The best thing about "Feast of Fools" is that the interactions between Claire, Eve, Michael and Shane have evolved into such a tangible, intricate understanding and their relationship and care for one another shows. Michael, still dealing with his vampirism, is fighting to stay true to himself and hiding the parts of him that crave blood and put his friends in danger. Eve is forced to deal with her family when tragedy strikes, and is still unsure how to handle her deadly brother. And Shane is visibly trying to accept what Michael has become, and his relationship with Claire becomes conflicted when one of Mr. Bishop's vampires tries to control him, body and soul. Like the prior Morganville series, this story was darn near impossible to put down. It's also not a stand-alone--so beware, you're going to want to have "Lord of Misrule" close at hand, because I promise you will not want to wait too long to find out what happens next. This would be a great TV series.

    Feast of Fools - The 4th book in the series that has the arrival of 3 vampires.

    Since the arrival of Bishop, Morganville has gotten stranger than it already seems. Claire's parents have decided to move to Morganville, much to her utter surprise. Not only that but there's an upcoming event called the Feast of Fools. As the town of Morganville prepares for the feast, Claire has a feeling that something's not right about it. Awesome series that you should definitely read.

    Amazing series!

    When I first picked up this series I was unsure of what I would find. I was looking for a new exciting series. Once I picked it up though I couldn't put it down! When Clarie was struggling to find her way in her new town I felt it all with her. The author is very desriptive and good with emotion. Book four has been one of my favorites so far. The action is intense and keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole book. Especially when she becomes friends with a crazy old vampire who is losing his mind! Trust me this is one series you will absolutely love!

    Great Read!

    One of the best of the series so far. Really moves the plot forward and brings more Myrnin (who I can't help but love)! Several surprises in this book.

    OMG!!!!!!!

    In the town of Morganville, vampires and humans live in relative peace. Student Claire Danvers has never been convinced, especially with the arrival of Mr. Bishop, an ancient, old-school vampire who cares nothing about harmony. What he wants from the town living and its dead is unthinkably sinister. It is only at a formal ball, attended by vampires and their human dates, that Claire realizes the evil trap Mr. Bishop has set for Morganville.

    Feast Of Fools - Awesome Book!

    Rachel Caine does it again with the 4th installment of The Morganville Vampires Series, Feast Of Fools! With the arrival of Bishop the semi-peaceful town of Morganville is turned upside down and things don't look good for the members of the Glass House. Can Claire and her friends come out of this alive...? Okay if you haven't started this series, which I don't see why you haven't, otherwise why would you be reading a review for the 4th book in a series... Anyway if you haven't started this series, you totally should!!

    WOW GREAT SERIES!!!!!!!!

    Wow when i first started this series i wasn't sure about it. But after the first book all i could think was i luv this series!!!!!! <333 Claire is definitley someone i could look up too. Eve is unique in the series, theres just something about her that people would just always want to be around. Shane has that wild wreckless bad boy behavior yet he can be really the sensitve caring guy at the same time. Michael hmmm hes one special guy that is always looking out for claire, he takes his big brother role serioulsy ooo and you cant forget hes super sexi ;) I'd definitley reccomend thiss series!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well I can say this book is the book for the haters of Twilight

    Well I can say this book is the book for the haters of Twilight who still have an interest or passion for the vampire genre. Vampires, love, school and family issues, Feast of Fools has it all! In the Morganville series, the main character is Claire Danvers who seeks for an education and ends up in the university that lies within Morganville. Morganville is at first like the typical college town but things start to get weird once Claire moves out of her dormitory. The series is mainly about Claire and her story as she deals with the many changes in her life due to the secret of Morganville. In the Feast of Fools, everyone has to deal with the vampire drama of Amelia and her father, Bishop. Bishop shows up in town and everyone knows he’s up to something.  The vampires prepare for the grand welcome ball for Bishop while the students pass along the rumor of it being one of the biggest social events that year. This book is one of the most interesting of the series because the reader does get more insight on the elder vampires like Amelia and of the town itself.  You see how the vampire society is just as the human one, throwing a party at the most in convent time and every guest to it dressed in the most scandalous clothes they can find in the Texan town. The ending is one of the worst parts of the book because it leaves this sadness in one’s heart over the traumatic events within that last chapter.  Relationships are tested, hearts are broken but regain and Myrnin drives everyone insane, this book is truly a gem in the series.
