REVIEW: Fade Out by Rachel Caine


Fade Out by Rachel Caine

(Summary from Amazon) 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 freedoms, 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 worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger-and way more dangerous-than anyone suspected.

My thoughts...There is something to be said about an author's writing when you can jump right into a story without feeling lost.  Even though it has been months since I read Carpe Corpus, within about 10-15 pages I was right back into the series.  These are easy, fun reads with a unique story line.  In this installment, the characters continue to show character growth and development.   This story had tons of excitement and several new characters increased the drama, making me feel badly for poor Claire. 
 
Without giving away any spoilers, I can tell you that there are big changes in several characters.  They have been influenced by event in previous books.  The story wraps up current problem, but leaves several dilemmas to be solved in future Morganville Books.  I cannot wait for the Spring 2010 release of Kiss of Death.  Here is a peek at the cover...

I've never heard of the series or the author. After reading your review, the books are now going on my TBR list!

Haven't read this series although I do have three of the books, but if her "Weather Warden" series is anything to go by, I know I'll love it. Can't wait to start it as the other YA vamp series, PC Cast's "House of Night" and Mead's "Vampire Academy" were great reads. I highly recommend both series.

He has someone in whom he's interested, and anyone who thinks their teenage love is the same person they're going to be with 50 years later just hasn't learned enough about true life yet.
