Lord of Misrule by Rachel Caine

From the cover:
"Morganville, Texas. Just south of normal.

In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have coexisted in (relatively) bloodless harmony... until the arrival of Bishop, a master vampire who threatens to put the evil back in evil undead and smash the fragile peace. But Bishop isn't the only threat...

Violent black clouds promise a storm of devastating proportions. As student Claire Danvers and her friends prepare to defend Morganville against the elements - both natural and unnatural - the unexpected happens: Morganville's vampires begin to vanish one by one."

This is the fifth book in the Morganville Vampires series - and I have really loved every one of them. The story is of a girl, Claire, who decides to go to college (early because of being basically a genius :)) in a small Texas town - that just happens to be run by vampires. The series is the story of how the human's lives get entangled with the vampires. Each story leaves you on a serious cliff hanger - enough that you really do wish you had the next book waiting for you.

These are a fast read and every vampire story-lover could get sucked in (hah. get it? sucked in. sorry). And I'd almost recommend them to just about anyone - as long as they can get into the fantasy stuff. It's a very interesting idea that makes vampires seem possible and part of reality (ahem, not saying they are). It is more on the tame side for a vamp story, but high on the adventure.

Anyway, there are other blog reviews online: Here, here, here, and here.
