Fade Out by Rachel Caine

Fade Out (Morganville Vampires, Book 7)Now that Bishop is gone, life in Morganville is a lot different, and a lot better. Amelie, the ruling vampire, is changing the way things are, and now, humans have a lot more rights that the vampires must respect. Day-to-day life is safer than it’s ever been, and Claire and her friends actually have the opportunity to do what they like for once since they don’t have to be running from danger all the time. But life in Morganville never stays boring for long, and soon, someone goes missing. Yet when Claire and her friends start to investigate, they uncover a secret documentary project on vampires, a project that could have deadly repercussions for all the residents, both human and vampire, of Morganville.

Though I still quite enjoyed this seventh installment of the Morganville Vampires series, after the nonstop action and thrills delivered in Lord of Misrule and Carpe Corpus, the story and plot of Fade Out really can’t compare. There are several fascinating developments regarding Ada, the vampire computer, Myrnin, Morganville’s favorite half crazy vampire, and Kim, a tough new girl to the series, but I felt the overall plot didn’t really grab my attention as the previous Morganville Vampires books did. This doesn’t mean that Fade Out is not good; the plot is still exciting and entertaining and the characters are well developed and interesting. I will likely continue to read the Morganville Vampires series, but I have a feeling that it’s not likely to get much better anymore.

The Morganville Vampires series will still be enjoyed by fans of the Dark Elite series by Chloe Neill.

Rating: 4.0

Hopefully she's got a plan to end the series. It's when they go on and on with no good plan that they're not good.
