Review - Fade Out by Rachel Caine - Spoilers

Fade Out (Morganville Vampires #7)
Publisher: Allison and Busby
Pages: 348

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 freedom, 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 worse. Claire and Eve soon realise this film project, featuring the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger - and way more dangerous - than anyone suspected...

Review: 4/5
Well, what can I say about Rachel Caine and the Morganville Vampires. The stories are always full of action and plot twists that keep me reading, so it's really no wonder that I always get through the books fast. In this seventh installment of the series, the town of Morganville is recovering after the epic battle in the previous book, and Claire's friend Eve decides to join a stage production of A Streetcar Named Desire. Eve's starring in it with her friend Kim, who Claire takes an instant disliking to, and the events of the book really start from there.

The story is really hooking in this one; I wanted to find out straightaway why Claire disliked Kim so quickly, and it is really one of those books that you just can't put down. I really enjoy reading Claire and Myrnin's scenes; he is sweet with just the right dose of insane-ness. I also enjoyed reading Ada's scenes; even though she isn't the nicest of characters, her bits are almsot always entertaining. Overall, I really enjoyed this installment in the Morganville Vampires series, and I enjoy reading on to find out what happens next to Claire and co. 4/5
