Welcome back to Morganville. A small town in Texas ruled by vampires. Last book we witnessed how violent and inhumane other vampires were a.k.a Bishop and his crew compared to our resident vamps leade by Oliver, Myrnin and our founder Amelie. It was after after Bishop's final demise, I ws afraid that our little town won't be as interesting after all that thrill and chaos. I am so glad that did not happen. Book 7, Fade Out introduce us to new characters/villains. Morley a stench-y (probably germ friendly), demented vampire threatened to kill our Claire, Shane, Eve, Michael and Amelie by late Sam Glass' tomb. That was of course at the beginning. Soon we met Kimberlie Magness goth girl like Eve, a fellow cast member of the upcoming theater production but that's all they have in common. Claire hated her with conviction. I've never seem her so jealous, made her all human and less perfect which I like. She did why she doesn't like her. After finding evidence that Kim is a huge threat to Morganville and the vampires inhibiting it. Kim is indeed a b*tch in all accounts and karma came running towards her. And then there's Ada. The vampire 2d computer brain that protects what lies in Morganville. It was a real crazy twist but nothing that you can't see coming. I guess it's inevitable to be exposed, I just never see it coming. What crazy stuffs are going to happen next? The ending as usual left me to speculate again. Will Claire and the gang find a loop hole on the deal that she made with Morley? Will Shane and Claire do it? Is it soon? (oh c'mon, don't tell me you're not waiting), now that they were given a title, what responsibilities and perks does that entails? Love the book, especially love the cover. Very catchy don't you think? Claire matured and is becoming tough. Yey for that. Myrnin continued to be my favorite vampire in this book. His lack of concern (at most situation that are not dire) and sarcastic comments and bunny ear slippers are amusing but I am really concern about Amelie. A mourning leader is a bad sign, I get that she's still vicious and she proved her strength when she confronted her 2nd in command but still, she can't let her guard down, especially when there is Oliver whose been wanting to take over the town ever since he got there, humans that looks like they are about to start a rebellion and some nasty new vampires.

Once I started this series I couldn't stop.Everytime I picked up one of these books they would be finished the same day.Rachel Caine is one of my favorite authors, the characters she creates are perfect for each story.If you want a book with action,love, and characters you'll never forget, then this is one of those great series that will keep you one your toes.All in all, one of the best series I have read sp far.

I love this book! I love the way it's written. I have read this series twice and still love it(that does not happen offten)! What i love most about this book is when you feel sorry for Shane and Claire but also want to burry your head in a pillow and laugh 'till you cry.

This book is great its everything that I expected from the book and more. But at the same time I was a little disappointed because of how it ended. (It just ended!!) Like I was confused that I had to read it 2 times to make sure I didn't miss some pages. there Is a major build up and than just.... flat. But the epilogue was amazing. Oliver is all in this book and come on who doesn't love some Oliver Hes the most likable Villain I have ever met. You hate, love, fear, and cheer for him at the same time.

I must say this series was something different than what I usually read...I love how its particular and unique in that way. Many people have written about Vampires and junk and many of them can just suck but this series just made me want more and more and in less than a week I finished the whole series. I can't wait for the next book to come out.

Im a big fan of anyting vampire and love the stores,characters in this series. I get a good story line and characters that continue through each book. I read a lot of novels in the adult section of this venue and somtimes get overwealmed by to much intense sexual content. The story somtimes gets lots. This series is all about the characters and the story line. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Rachel Caine never ceases to amaze me. After Carpe Corpus ended I honestly thought she should have stopped there with her Morganville adventures. I thought she had left a nice end to it and that writing another book would ruin it, but I was way off. Fade Out is a great continuation of the series and it left me mesmerized. I could not put it down! This book is great and you should read the rest. (I would write a little about the book, but with it being the 7th in the series, for those you haven't read the others, it would be a huge spoiler, so I'm not going to write one.)

Things are mostly quiet in Morganville, a very suspicious state of affairs, so Claire and the gang have to deal with Amelie mourning Sam, almost to the point of her death, and Claire has to cope with Ada going insane and trying to kill her.Fun times!

The seventh installment of The Morganville Vampires, Fade Out, was no disappointment- It brought fast paced, entertaining action to this little town in Texas once again. I won't dive into a super long review like I usually do, I think most of you that would be interested in reading this have read the first six books- and if you liked all of those- you will love this one.Since my favorite character no longer appears in the books, I think I will settle for Michael being my new favorite- Myrnin coming in a close second. Something about his bipolar, serial killer, fanged bunny slipper-ness. (Yes, he rocks fanged bunny slippers! I love it!) Myrnin was great in this novel, probably the most involved character.The first half of this book was relatively weak and a bit slow for me, but when I got to about page 100, it started getting really good. This is when all the real action started and I couldn't put the book down. Let me give you a quick run down, since I haven't done a good job of that so far:"Fade Out" finds Amelie mourning the loss of her one true love and dealing with a city that is going through a period of rebellion. As she has not been herself lately humans and vampires alike are ravishing the streets doing outrageous things. Humans are slaying vampires and vampires are threatening Amelie's control. This needs to be stopped and Morganville needs to be returned to its once "peaceful" state.So many relationships are being challenged in this book. We have Michael's relationship with his three friends being tested, as well as his more intimate relationship with Eve being rocked about. (I hope their relationship doesn't last, Eve isn't one of my favorite characters...) Eve is having trouble dealing with the fact that her honey is a vampire, and Michael is having trouble riding that thin line between being apart of the vampire community and being a friend to Shane, Claire and Eve. Hmm... who else is having relationship issues? Claire finds herself drowning in a pool of jealousy when one of Shane's ex-hook ups strolls into her life. It is really hard to deal with your own jealousy when a jealous computer (Ada!) is trying to slaughter you... with massive spiders, nonetheless. But who wouldn't want crazy Myrnin all to herself?Didn't I say I wouldn't do a super long review? Gosh, I'm such a liar. Haha. I do like this series, but it isn't one of my favorites. These are good quick reads- I need a good quick read sometimes when my schedule is busy. (Finishing a book always makes me feel more productive. And believe me, you won't have trouble finishing this one!) I look forward to the next book in the series- I hope that Michael plays a bigger role. It was wonderful having Myrnin play such an involved role in this book... Michael's turn, please? Hehe..

About~ In Morganville, Texas, someone is always watching. Without the evil Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, life has changed-dramatically. 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-almost. Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theater company. Yet when one of Eve¿s cast mates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. As she and Claire investigate, they soon realize that not only is the subject of the film are the vampires themselves, but that this project is a whole lot bigger-and way more dangerous-than anyone suspected.My Review~ The Morganville Vampire Series keeps getting better and better. Every time I think I got it all figured out, Rachel Caine keeps getting me by surprise. The Morganville Vampire Series is not like any other vampire series out there. Non-stop action, love, and drinking blood (yes, I know that rhymes). In other vampire books, there¿s always a human who falls in love with a vampire, but in Morganville, most vampires are bad. I really, really recommend this series to be on your reading pile. You will love it form the first sentence.Plot: 5/5Characters: 5/5Ending: 5/5Cover Art: 4/5Other Books in the Series: Glass Houses, The Dead Girls¿ Dance, Midnight Alley, Feast of Fools, Lord of Misrule, Carpe Corpus

Getting a new Morganville Vampire installment is like getting your birthday and Christmas presents all at once. Its a treat that doesn't come along nearly as often as you crave. That said, each book is intense and well written. The books have always been disappointingly short in legnth, but Rachel Caine packs each page. There are no fillers in this series. I really wondered about "Fade Out" because when we last left our Glass House inhabitants, they had just helped boot evil vampire Bishop from his reign of terror over the town. Bishop's daughter Amalie was restored to power and Claire helped find a cure for the disease plaguing the vamp population. "Carpe Corpus" tied up the previous storylines in a pretty bow. Apparently life in a vampire-run town with limited access to the rest of the world can't stay calm for long. This story has the four friends trying to figure out who has planted a ton of cameras around town, and in private residences, hoping to unveil the vampire town to the world. Add in some drama between Eve and Michael, and a showdown with Ada, the computer/human hybred, and tons of my favorite Mernin and this was another surefire Morganville tale. If you can't tell by my lush praise, this is my absolute favorite series right now...adult or YA. Keep them coming Rachel Caine! I will also mention that I do also enjoy Caine's Weather Warden series...so pick both of them up starting with the first in each series if you haven't already.

Fade Out is the 7th round in the Morganville Vampires series and it never cease to amaze. I'll be honest with you, I was kind of scared the story would get old with Bishop gone and most enemies under control but I was wrong! Caine surprised us with a brand new twist in the Morganville saga, and I never saw it coming. I find myself craving for the next book, impatient to know what Caine's got up her sleeve.I find it hard to resume the plot of that book without giving spoilers so I will refrain from doing it, but you have to know there is one new character introduced in the series. Kim, another goth girl in town, plays in the city's last production with Eve, and she's hiding more then anyone suspects.Kim is very popular, loved by everyone but Claire can't stand the sight (or thought) of her. Does it have to do with the fact that she dated Shane in the past?Our favorite vampires are indeed at the rendez-vous with more suspense and originality, and Mirnin really stole my heart in that instalment. I love his craziness, corkiness and uniqueness. The guy wears 17th century clothing with fanged-bunny slippers. Do I need to say more?Ada will also play a bigger part this time, for better or for worst!If you haven't picked that series yet, it is a great vampire series that detach from the vampire romance stream. Vampires aren't "vegetarian", nice or sexy (ok Michael is...), they are dangerous, vicious and can't be trusted. They will scare you, imprison you and tax you (in blood indeed).Welcome to Morganville!

Same as the other novels in the Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine, this book kept me riveted to its pages so thoroughly that I finished it in one sitting. It just keeps getting better with every new volume, and Rachel Caine never ceases to surprise her readers with gut-wrenching plot twists at every turn. Fade Out did not disappoint! Anyone who enjoys the paranormal fiction genre will enjoy this treat of a 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.

So now that Bishop is gone, where does that leave everyone? Happily ever after! NOT!The gang is back in Glass House and everything seems fine. Michael is working, Shane is...well, being Shane (he either got a job or I read to much fanfiction!) Claire is back with Myrinn, and Eve got a spot in a play. So what could be wrong?Claire has been friend dumped, for Kim the new kid on the block. Or, at least, new to Claire, since she wasn't raised in Morganville.Ada, the computer that controls Morganville is out to kill Claire as well.So when Kim goes missing Claire being the nice person she is goes off to help Eve find her. A good book. I liked how Ada went all crazy and it wasn't vampire vs. humans (which is still there don't get me wrong) or vampires vs. vampires (also there) but there is the new angle.Nicely down. Not really a cliffhanger, but enough to know that poor Eve and Michael are on the rocks.Can't wait for the next installment to come out.

I think this one was the my least favourite book of the series. Compared to the rest of the series, it felt slow, dragged on, and not very hard to expect what would happen next.

Morganville has a new set of issues when some vampires want to leave and a human does something that threatens their town. Claire and her friends, of course, get caught up in the middle. I enjoy that there's always something new going on in this series. It's not just fighting the same battle over and over. New characters are brought in, granted mostly they've always been in the town, we just hadn't met them yet. The point is, it doesn't get boring or predictable. They're not constantly fighting the same set of circumstances or even the same vampire. I also really enjoy seeing the complex relationships between the members of the Glass house and how they grow and develop and go through obstacles. I think having Claire, an outsider, as the central main character is interesting too. This is someone who didn't grow up in Morganville and therefore has a different reaction to things that happen in the town. And I like seeing how people react to her reactions. It's just a great series.

I wanted to read Fade Out because as you know if you have been following my reviews for last month of so, I have been bitten by the Morganville Vampire series bug. I love Claire and her relationship with Shane, Eve and Michael. The friendship between Claire and Eve is tested a bit in this one, but glad to see it is realistic and see how they work it out.  Karen at For What It's Worth and Mary at The Book Swarm occasionally post twitter-style reviews. Karen calls hers Short and Tweet, and I am going to borrow that review style here. Tweet Review: Devoured it. Love the plot twists + hot moments between C&S. The alliances/ trusts shifts- the gray area of friend or foe changes so much. Bottom Line: Another great addition that kept me guessing plus the romance made me happy.
