Alright, let's see if I can come up with a spoiler-free review.

The Morganville Vampires series is one of those which I've put off reading for quite a while. Somehow I just expected myself not to like it. I had "Glass Houses" sitting on my shelf for months before I finally picked it up but as it turned out, I fell in love immediately. And who would have thought, 9 books later I am still loving it. I guess what makes this series one of my favorites are the characters and their close friendship. I...more

Kissa's Review

ah Myrnin... you insane twisted vampire, you have really screwed up this time...

Okay, i don't want to give any spoilers out, so i'll keep it as informationally non-informational as possible.. if that makes sense

So, basically, Morganville is still it's weird, scary, vampire-fied town, but this book in the series really gets into some scary stuff... i'm talking brain in a jar freaky... i mean really?! but that's why i love the plac...more

Oh, Myrnin. Myrnin, Myrnin, Myrnin. Excuse my language but you fucked up, dude. I worried for your sanity and for your life. There were times when I loved you and when I hated you. You've caused so much trouble, so much pain and suffering and yet I still care about you. Even on that last page when my jaw dropped after my little fit of worry over what you may have done to yourself.

Ghost Town really begins when Claire stakes and kills a vamp whilst trying to rescue Eve and is sentenced to no sleep...more

Rachel Caine has once again delivered a wild adventure in Morganville filled with crazy twists, snark-worthy dialog and a perfect set of characters that kept me glued to every page. I loved Ghost Town and after waiting six long months for this book and devouring it in a few short hours, I’m back to anticipating the release of the next installment. Bite Club can’t get here fast enough!!

There was plenty of action in this book and squee-worthy Claire and Shane moments that had me re-reading paragra...more
Can't freaking wait!!! I missed Myrnin!!

I swear, Love, will never be a strong enough word to convey my feelings for this series. It's always a blast reading a Morganville book and I always miss them when there gone.

So, what's up this time in Morganville? Why, memory lost of course...;)

While Myrnin and Claire tweaked the machine to get the boundaries back up and running, I think either Claire's sleep deprived-ness or Myrnin's...well Myrnin might have missed a step.

Okay - if you really know me is to know that Morganville Vampires is my favorite Series of all time!!!!

Theme Song - You Save me - Kenny Cheseney

"You save me" is Shane's song to Claire!!
I simply adore this series! Above everything I adore the friendship between Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve. How they watch out for each other and the light and fun way they interact. Always teasing each other but still you feel the love.

We are back in Morganville and in the beginning all seems easy going, which would be a new thing for Morganville. But then Claire and Shane run to rescue Eve from a Party and suddenly Claire finds herself looked in Myrnins Lab to finish the work on the "machine"...more
I won this book in a goodreads firstreads contest.

When I saw this book in the giveaways, I figured I would enter because I have been thinking about reading the Morganville series, but I wasn't sure if I would like it. I figured that if I won, I would read this one, and if the 9th book was good, than I would know the rest of the series would be worth my time. Don't worry, I have read plenty of books out of order before!

Anyhow, that being said, this book was good. The story was original, the chara...more

Morganville Vampire is one of the, if not the BEST, series I have ever read.

I have been hook since the first book The Glass House. I love all the character especially Claire and Shane fallow by Eve and Michael, which are room-mates.

If you LOVE book with romance and paranormal stuff, this is definitely your book.
It's about a town full and ruled by vampires where this girl who goes to high-school early because she is really smart. Well, lets just says she steps out of line with Queen Bitch. She is...more
One of the things that I've consistently enjoyed about this series is that I don't ever feel like I'm overwhelmed by how heavy the reading is. Is it because the writing is extremely accessible? Is it because the plot is very fast-paced? Maybe it's both. I just know that I sit down to read these and I come out of it with a smile.

Part of it comes from the characters. Claire is strong, smart and brave. She is willing to put herself on the line consistently for those around her. Not just her friends...more

I must start out by saying that I devoured this book in mere hours. Rachel has pumped up the creepy factor in Morganville to 1000 in Ghost Town! If you thought the vampires in Morganville were devious, evil, kill-all-humans before, just wait until you see them now! This book has twice the random attacks, twice the RUN FOR YOUR LIFE moments, and best of all TWICE THE MYRNIN!!!!
For those of you out there with an undying love of Claire's super crazy boss, Myrnin, you will be excited to know that My...more

This and my other reviews can be found at

Claire is ordered to repair the boundary that stops people from leaving Morganville after she breaks one of Morganville’s serious rules. However, this causes more serious problems as both humans and vampires are acting strangely, and it is down Claire alone to fix the problem before it is too late. I cannot say too much without giving the storyline away but I love the relationships in Ghost Town, and how Claire has...more

I'm not sure how this series managed to stay off my radar for so long. But strangely, I'm not disappointed. There is nothing I love better than discovering an awesome series that already consists of many books, because I can read them all...boom boom boom. (I also like to watch my TV like that! I like to immerse myself in a world and stay there!).

Anyway, another great installment in the Morganville Vampire series. (Note to self: Writing a book review is a lot easier if you are not already halfwa...more
I feel very weird after reading that ending...

But somehow, I'm okay with it. Because, this is an addicting series. And I love Myrnin.
Ve bitti.. Kitabın başlarında onları özlediğimi düşünüyordum. Ama nedense bir ara beni gerçekten sıktı. Sürekli bir deja vu hissettim. Acaba ingilizcesini mi okudum diye kendime sordum ama okumadım sanki.. :D Myrnin'in saçmalıkları bana da geçti sanırım.. :D

Aklımda uzun uzun yorumlamak vardı ama artık yorgunluktan yarına erteliyorum.
4.5 veriyorum kitaba . Gerçekten çok iyiydi gene bol maceralı sonu merakla bırakan bir kitap oldu.

Morganville , after you read Ghost Town will leave you wondering what is going to happen ? Is this the end of Morganville as we know it ? Has the time come for Vampires to run amok and humans be hunted and tortured ?
All Claire wanted was to spend some quality time alone at a drive-in movie theatre with her boyfriend Shane as most of the town was at a rave in another part of Morganville. However , her night ended badly and Claire ended up on trial for the murder of a vampire. All this with one l...more

If you thought Morganville was crazy and scary before, you haven't seen anything yet! In this installment of the series, Claire and Myrnin are trying to create a new computer to control the memories and boundaries of Morganville. After working days with Myrnin, they finally get a system going. As days pass though, Claire and the rest of the gang, start to realize that something has gone wrong with it. Humans and vampires start losing chunks of their memory. Vampires start to forget about the rul...more

I really cannot believe I am writing a non-glowing-verging-on-negative review for a Morganville book. This series has consistently been one of my favourite reads - I thought that there could be no such thing as a bad Morganville book. But after reading Ghost Town, I remembered the problems I had with the first book in the series (Glass House). Namely, it just didn't make me care about the characters.

Claire and the gang are, as usual, in the midst of another action-packed drama - this time centr...more

I stayed up way too late reading this. I couldn't stop. I just had to know what caused this new problem, although I'd known it was Myrnin, somehow and I just had to know how Claire was going to fix it.

Honestly, though, why does Rachel Caine insist on torturing Shane? That guy cannot win.

Morganville was once again in chaos. Everyone was losing three years worth of memories and while this happened, everyone closest to Claire turned on her because they just couldn't remember who the hell she was. I...more
This one brings out all your emotions. It has happy, and your romantic & sweet moments. Then its damn that sucks for Claire, hmm that's weird, then freaky, then sad, poor Michael, poor Claire, poor Shane, poor poor crazy Myrnin, then your back to being sad for Shane and then to Myrnin again.

I felt so bad for Myrnin while I did enjoy him crazy (I love the stuff that comes out of his mouth) I just felt so sorry for him at towards ending. Don't get me wrong its not a depressing book at all. Th...more

Reading The Morganville Vampires series is like watching a series of episodes from a poplar TV show. As always some episodes are more exciting than others, and while this one had the action and the high stakes I am still waiting for Morganville to tap again into the world changing elements that started on Lord of Misrule and lasted till Carpe Corpus. Ghost Town was still fun and enjoyable as an addition to the Morganville series, and seriously if you ha...more
These books have a manic energy about them that makes them impossible to put down. I read the first eight like a person obsessed, then had to stop and wait for Ghost Town. The wait led me to wonder if time to stop and regroup would somehow sully the next book, because series are not typically this consistently good. Something had to happen. Rachel Caine would go insane and wreck her series. It had to happen. It happens to practically all series, so why not this one?

Well, weirdly enough Ghost Tow...more
After the nice, tidy ending of Kiss of Death, I wasn't sure what direction the series would take. It was obvious things were going to be very different when Claire and Co returned to Morganville, but what exactly would happen was anybody's guess. Of course, we know that Claire is going to manage to get herself into major trouble involving the vampires in town, which she does. But it ends badly. Claire has been found (some-what) guilty of the highest crime in Morganville: murder of a vampire! Her...more
