    Overall

    The book itself is pretty much on par with the rest of the series, I enjoyed the continuing story and advancing of the characters. That said, it took me FOREVER to get through this book because I could barely STAND to listen to the narrator. Her accents are laughable, and in certain cases downright insulting (her reading of Karmeesha's every line made me cringe!) I won't be listenting to the next book if there isn't another narrator change.

    In the college town of Morganville, vampires and humans have coexisted in 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.

    "#6 In The Morganville Vampire Series"
    Overall

    Just a quick note to those of you who saw that this was a sequel to Glass Houses - it is indeed in the series, but it is book number 6. So if you were to go from Glass Houses to Lord of Misrule, there would indeed be much of the story history eluded to that would leave you frustrated and confused. Unfortunately, books 2, 3, 4 & 5 are not available through audible.com (or iTunes or Amazon or ANYWHERE for that matter), so my best advice would be to listen to Glass Houses and if it appeals to you, read the other four books in the series and then have Lord of Misrule read to you. I have actually enjoyed reading the series in that way - seeing what I notice and infer of the characters and sotries when I read the words myself as opposed to listening, and on the flip side seeing what my imagination conjurs when I listen to someone else read the story to me. As far as the actual story of the Morganville Vampire series - it is an appealing young adult (older young adult for sure) world, and the action is non-stop. The characters appealing and not one deminsonal. I am not a teenager (or even in my 20s) anymore, and I remember wishing that they would write more novels like this when I was. I remember being bothered by the overwhleming amount of Sweet Valley High-like books that pretneded all teenagers were preening girlie girls that never said a bad word or had a lusty thought. I don't think these novels are in anyway great works of fiction, or really even that memorable - but they are fun, and exciting and a great place to escape to for a little while.
