(Beware of previous book spoilers in the review for FADE OUT.)GLASS HOUSESDEAD GIRL’S DANCEMIDNIGHT ALLEYFEAST OF FOOLSLORD OF MISRULECARPE CORPUSFADE OUTKISS OF DEATH (April 2010)GHOST TOWN (November 2010)Like all of Rachel Caine’s books, this one picks up right where the previous one left off. Life is ticking along after the downfall of Bishop and the humans are getting used to a tentative peace with the vampires. The vampires have received the medicine needed to combat the vampire disease that has been plaguing them. Not everyone is happy though.Ada, Myrnin’s creation, seems to be targeting Claire – jealous of her relationship with Myrnin even though Claire is only his lab assistant.Amelie is having a difficult time getting over the loss of Sam and is acting distant and strange.Claire is fighting feelings of jealousy as Eve makes a new friend while rehearsing for her performance in A Streetcar Named Desire.Claire is even more jealous when Eve’s new friend turns out to be someone Shane had a relationship with in the past.No one is happy when they find out what Kim, Eve’s new friend, has been doing around town.If you are a fan of the Morganville Vampire series then you definitely want to read FADE OUT. It provides the same entertaining banter between Claire, Shane, Eve, and Michael we are used to, while at the same time, building tensions between those same relationships. I can’t wait to read KISS OF DEATH and GHOST TOWN, the next two books in the series.
