    "Solid sequel..."

    I am enjoying this series! This is BOOK FIVE in the series; Audible does not currently have books 2-4, so I read them (paperbacks), before downloading this one. This is a very solid sequel and great continuation of the story - as I finished each book in the series, I couldn't wait to go on and find out what would happen next. These are listed as YA, and they are, but I am mid-30's and have enjoyed the plot and story very much. :) If you like vampire stories, give Glass House a try!

    "And the Story Keeps Rolling in"
    What made the experience of listening to Lord of Misrule the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed the constant twists of this installment in the series. Although there is not distinct separation between the previous novel and this one, there are many many unexpected twists.


    What about Cynthia Holloway’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoy her portrayal of the vampire's voices, she does a nice silky smooth yet stone cold narrative.


    If you could take any character from Lord of Misrule out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Definitely Myrnin, of course while he isn't having a fit of madness.

    "Weak installment in a good series"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Let me just start by saying that I'm hooked on the series and am going to keep going with it. This book wasn't terrible or anything; it was just sort of... eh. Rachel Caine is great at writing character-driven plot lines, but this book was mostly descriptions of action - them moving about town, going through dark tunnels etc. It was kind of boring, and a lot of it could have been cut out. It was also totally confusing, but that's possibly because I got bored and wasn't listening that carefully. I honestly couldn't tell you exactly how or why most of the stuff happened, and it doesn't really matter.

    All the books in the series end in cliff-hangers, so it's more like all the books are chapters in one giant book. This book was worse about that than most though, ending pretty much right in the middle of the story, right after a big event.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Annoyed that the book ended there. This really should've been part of a larger book.


    What about Cynthia Holloway’s performance did you like?

    She does a great job with everyone's voices and makes the characters come alive.

    "This one was little slow."

    This one was a little slow for me and I found that the mind was wondering while listening to it. I hope that this is not an indication that the series is going down hill..

    "Great Read... Listen..."

    Cynthia Holloway's voice is wonderful and the story flows so well. So much conflict! The time line is so close to the previous books that you feel like you never left Morganville.

    "#6 In The Morganville Vampire Series"

    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.

    "Lord of Confusion"

    This book would have been better if there was a preceding book. Many events refer to circumstances which are not in the first book, The Glass House. The reader becomes confused of characters relationships based on information provided in The Glass House. You read (listen to) this and wonder what, when, or how did these people become friends/enemies. A main character that is the catalyst to the story is not developed. You cannot connect with him because you do not know him. I would not recommend this book as a sequence to The Glass House. If you have read (listen to) The Glass House just stop there and let you mind fill in the blanks. This book just raises to many questions.
    This is not a good follow up to the first book.
