Good but not brilliant. This one is a little more sedate and less action packed but it took a worrying element (i.e. Ada) of the previous book and expanded upon it. That's what I like about this series, it flows almost effortlessly like it's one long story rather than episodes. Everything is explained and played out to its natural end.

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

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

I can’t believe the genius that is Rachel Caine. How it is possible to have so many unique storylines for the same series that will always hook you in, leave you guessing right to the very last page, and never get old, or disappoint in any way, is beyond me. Rachel Caine is simply amazing, and with Fade Out, she’s done it again!

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

This one was a bit too rushed plot-wise for me to rate it any higher.
What can I say about this series that I haven’t mentioned before? It’s awesome, it’s engaging, it’s perfectly casted with four splendid characters, and it’s a series that I want to continue on for quite some time.

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

Rachel Caine should have stopped at book 6. It had a good ending and the series would have been able to rest in peace. But I will give her credit where credit is due, because I care enough about Michael Glass to keep reading, so well played Ms. Caine.

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

After all the closure in the previous book in the series, Carpe Corpus, I was curious as to where Caine was going to go in this entry. I kept on wondering for over half the book since there didn't seem to be any REAL conflict besides a couple little squabbles here and there. At the time, I found myself hooked - because I love the series - but not devouring the book because there just wasn't that much going on.

Then things started taking shape and I gobbled up the second half in no time. There are

Fade Out, the seventh book in the Morganville Vampires series, is about what's been happening in the city after Carpe Corpus finshed. They've defeated Bishop, they've changed the rules so that humans are more comfortable living with their undead neighbors, and things seem to be back to normal. Claire is no longer a slave to Bishop, and is going to school and living with her parents while still going over to the Glass House whenever she can to see her friends and boyfriend, Shane. Eve has been ca ...more

I kind of wish this series had ended with the last book. At the end of that one, Claire and Shane were in love, the evil vamps had been defeated, things were going to change in Morganville and all seemed well. It really was a good ending.
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.

“I don’t see a way in,” Eve whispered.
Why are you whispering?” Myrnin whispered back. “Vampires can hear us, anyway.”
