Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

*Caution! Mild summery spoilers ahead!*

Lord of Misrule picks up exactly where Feast of Fools leaves off. The line has been drawn. The Glass household splits up in effort to protect themselves, the town, and even the vampires the once feared. Vamps and humans alike must decide whose side they want to be on. There are of course stray factions thrown in who attempt to rid the town of vampires altogether. Ultimately it comes down to Amelie and Mr. Bishop; and who has more strategy, power, and allegiance. Clare finds herself a pawn in deadly chess game and she must carefully calculate her next move in order to keep herself and her friends alive.

This book starts full steam ahead and doesn't slow down. Not even at the end. I absolutely can NOT wait to read the next book in the series, Carpe Corpus. Then I must wait in anguish until Caine's next installment comes out in November! I know it's only a month, but trust me, it's going to be one looooong month!!!

Cover art commentary:
Beautiful! Best cover in the series yet! Love the red, black, and gray. The colors play on each other nicely! I would definitely pick up this book solely based on the cover. I am guessing the two characters on the cover are Clare and Shane. :)

Overall rating:


  1. Sounds great! The cover is pretty!

  2. I've really enjoyed the series. :)

    Yeah, the first cover isn't the best (Glass Houses), but then they infinitely improve.

    Let me know what you think if read them!
