Young Adult Review: Bitter Blood by Rachel Caine

Bitter Blood (The Morganville Vampires, #13)

For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…
Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.
To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news… or worse.

Lots of adventures in Morganville and now things are getting creepy for the humans, because the vampires got the control again and the hunting season has begun. I like the twists and the changes that happen in this tiny Texas town, but the best part was how Claire is always trying to find a reason for things to happen and a way to keep the peace.
One thing that I’m currently loving in this series is the changing on the POV, a few points in this book were a bit boring, mostly Amelie, but I loved seeing more of Shane and Michael, because things were really dangerous for the new married couple.
In this town there’s never a dull moment but I thought it was really strange the way Amelie just bowed in this time and let all the decisions in the wrong hands. We could see during the series how strong she is and how much dangerous she could become if her control was taken, but to see her doing some things was a bit on the extreme side for me.
I liked seeing the reaction of the town for the first human-vampire weeding and was kinda expecting problem, but not so much as a mob beating people, so wrong. But I liked how much Shane is starting to take responsibilities and he’s really cute with Claire, but things took a wrong turn during a few chapters, but I still have faith these two will end together.
I liked more the relationship parts of this book than the real problem, because it feel like things only happened on the last few chapters and I like seeing Claire trying to solve a puzzle and needing help more than this crazy diabolical twist.
