Claire Danvers never thought things could get this bad. The vampire clique ruling her hometown of Morganville has been overthrown by a monstrous sadist named Bishop. Claire and her boyfriend Shane, betrayed by the mad alchemist Myrnin (who is also Claire's boss), are separated; Shane is to be executed and Claire is enslaved to Bishop's will by a magic tattoo. Now she is his errand girl and the town--including her closest friends--hates and fears her.
Claire has no idea how much worse things can get.From official release/information:
Product Description: In the small college town of Morganville, vampires and humans lived in (relative) peace—until all the rules got rewritten when the evil vampire Bishop arrived, looking for the lost book of vampire secrets. He's kept a death grip on the town ever since. Now an underground resistance is brewing, and in order to contain it, Bishop must go to even greater lengths. He vows to obliterate the town and all its inhabitants—the living and the undead. Claire Danvers and her friends are the only ones who stand in his way. But even if they defeat Bishop, will the vampires ever be content to go back to the old rules, after having such a taste of power?
