Carpe CorpuseBook - 2009
Read Rachel Caine's posts on the Penguin Blog
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?
Baker & Taylor
As an underground resistance movement to the domination of the evil vampire Bishop builds, Bishop plans to destroy all the inhabitants of the town to quash the rebellion, and only Claire Danvers and her friends can stop him.

Carpe Corpus" opens on Claire Danvers's 17th birthday. Her parents give her a necklace and a dress, but all she really wants is to see Shane Collins and she's willing to risk her life asking Bishop, the ancient vampire who's captured Morganville, to do so.
The four inhabitants of the Glass House are all scattered. Claire's living with her parents and serving Bishop against her will. Shane's caged with his vampire hating father, Frank. Michael looks like he's in Bishop's thrall. Eve is the lone inhabitant of the Glass House and she's trying to keep the place for her four friends.
But Amelie's, the former vampire ruler of Morganville, is back and things are not quite as they seem. Neither Ancient Myrnin or Michael is in thrall to Bishop after all. It's up to Claire to help get enough serum to heal the vampires of Morganville of the Alzheimer-like illness that Bishop probably gave them so they can get back their town.
