Fade Out: : The Morganville Vampires Book Seven

Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of
I instantly took a disliking to Kim, her attitude was inexcusable. I couldn't understand why Eve worshipped her. Kim's media project to expose Morganville was bril ...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)
Another installment that started off with some good drama but quickly fell in line with previous installments. Bummer. It was still good. I didn’t really like the Ada storyline. It was so farf ...more
So, with Carpe Corpus, the sixth book in the series, we had the end of the six book long story arc. Knowing how awesome Rachel Caine is, I knew Fade Out would be good, bu ...more
Fade Out is the seventh installment of the Morganville Vampire series where in this town, humans are the minority and vampires call the shots. Claire, Eve, Shane and Michael are part of the Glass House and have banned together to keep each other safe from evil doers. However, when someo ...more
The only good person left in this series is Michael Glass. He is always their for everyone, vampire and human, and even though his situation sucks he still does the right thing every time. Eve is a bitch, Claire is useless, and Shane is an ass. The ...more
Then things started taking shape and I gobbled up the second half in no time. There are ...more
But this one picks up a few months later and it's just odd. Claire is being pursued by a hundreds of years old steampunk vampire/computer machine that wants her dead and keeps attacking her. It's just almost too weird.
Then there is a video voyeur who has disapp ...more
I love the world of Morganville that Rachel Caine has created, her books are so well written and this installment didn't let me down. A new plot that was action packed and full of suprises.
The are so many amazing characters in this book. Even the evil ones I enjoy reading about. I love Shane and Claire's realtionship, they are one of my favourite couples because it seems more realistic then some other novels and ...more
Not one of my favorites of the series by any means. I'd say the theme to this book was jealousy, not very intriguing really. The action slowed down quite a bit and what there was seemed a little predictable. Hopefully the ...more
Fade Out was kind of a boring. Like really boring. But it was also a super quick read for me. Pretty much blazed through this boringness while listening to an audio for a different book.
I didn't really care about the story line or who the villain was. Or should I say...villains? Either way I didn't care about any of them. I just knew I either hated a character ...more
În volumul 7, Ada e beleaua cea mare. Ada e computerul dar și fosta ființă umană, fost vampir, creat de Myrnin. Ea vrea să o distrugă pe Claire. Al doilea antagonist este Kim, o tipă îndrăgostită de Shane și cu un complex de vedetism, de asemenea perversă, care vrea să facă un film desp ...more
In this seventh installment, things are looking up for our friends in Morganville. Bishop's gone. Michael's got a major gig and the possibility of a record deal. Eve's been cast in the town play and picked up a new friend, Kim. Shane's finally got himself a job and no one has put him in the hospital recently. And Claire...well, she's got an awful sunburn and is being used as a pawn in another game of power.
After the nicely wrapped up ending of Carpe Corpus I was curious whe ...more
Myrnin! Wow! He's finally not (very) crazy, so we get lots more real character development, rather than the dumb attention getting stunts he used to pull that seemed to pass for a personality. Now we have an actu ...more
The age old fallabilities of humans; jealousy and fear of "the other". The jealousy theme is presented between Claire and Kim, and Myrnin and Ada. Claire showed a more healthy way of dealing with jealousy- Ada not so much.
I couldn't help reminisce about sci-fi and fantasy shows that have dealt with this theme of the created mechanical being who "loved" its creator: the feminine robot in the 6th season of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer ...more
This book works well to continue bringing issues from previous books along, which is a great way to connect the series together rather than making them a bunch of individual stories with the same characters. I merely would have liked a better pace with this book as I would have enjoyed it much more that way.
As you would expect from my reviews (it is becoming a reoccurring pattern I’m ...more
The characters in this were alright, although I couldn’t imagine Myrnin wearing fluffy buddy slippers! That was slightly ridiculous.
The storyline was okay, but it was a bit boring. The main focus of the story seemed to be Myrnin’s assistant Ada, and some random play that Eve was part of. There didn’t seem to be much about the vampires in this at all.
The ending was okay, but I’m really hoping the next book will be better.
Not to mention that this book caused me to have really bizarre dreams last night, that Shane betrayed us (us being all my family and friends in real life) and I was devastated, and Joss Whedon had to act as my therapist by making me talk about my feelings while he drew funny pictures....
