Rachel Caine; Fade Out: The Morganville Vampire Series

For people who have not read the series I feel this book almost has a fresh start it doesn’t really bring up to much of previous books to effect someone just starting now to just jump right into this book (though I recommend you read the others). It just seems like a fresh start to the series, new opportunities for this series to keep going on.

    Claire is a trouble magnet. Claire almost froze to death and the whole idea of a light bomb clever and unique. (have to read to find out) I always love the playful banter the characters use with each other. It makes them seem so real..
I was cracking up when Shane said “Homie don’t play that.”  Ha talk about another time era can we say 90’s. Not to mention they continue to use the phrase “snap”.

   The half the book left me in a giant mystery. It’s as if there wasn’t a plot until half way through just a bunch of smaller plots rolled into one. Kim is the new oh so cool girl who previously dated her boyfriend and is now on the track to try to get him back, Not to mention she is trying to steal her bestfriend. On page 152 things finally started toward the plot line so by page 154 I was thinking did Kim get herself kidnapped or was it someone trying to hurt her or is she just having an off day…It was nice to be able to be wrong. Not to be able to guess a books ending. In the end can Claire save the day one more time with giant spiders, whacked out computers and an insane boss?

   The ending was so action packed as the whole series is. It’s one of the things about her books that keep me waiting for the next. There was only little problems with the writing. I didn't understand why there wasn't follow ups, like with Claire's enormous sunburn.  Now I can’t wait to find out if Michael and Eve can find it in each other to move on or stay together. Rachel Caine did not disappoint. She has the next part of the series coming out in April 2010.

Read a excerpt from Fade Out Here on Rachel Caine's site. 



Without the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, the resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their newfound freedoms, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again...

Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of Eve's castmates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger-and way more dangerous-than anyone suspected.

Hm, I have yet to read this one, though I've read the other books in the series. Great review! Definitely sounds like another complicated plot, though I'm not sure if I want to read or skip this one depending on how much I'll hate Kim, lol. :)

I like how this book sounds! the cover scares me, the models haircut reminds me of, for some odd reason ( i think it's the haircut) Cleopatra.

I enjoyed your review!
