Book Description

March 23 2010 Morganville Vampires (Book 7)
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 theater 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Rachel Caine Dec 1 2009
By Tynga's Reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars The kindness of strange people May 16 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Crazy computers, Goth rivals, and vampires in bunny slippers. Rachel Caine certainly knows how to write a weird urban fantasy story -- and while her seventh Morganville Vampires novel starts with a tangle of seemingly unrelated plot threads, she expertly lashes them all together into a pulse-pounding story that brings about some shocking new developments. And there's more than a little tinge of horror in there too.

Claire is having a rough time -- she gets a UV bomb in the face, then nearly freezes her to death when Amelie has a suicidal depression fit. Some rough, brutal new vampires are prowling around town, and the computer hologram Ada is acting bizarrely jealous of Claire merely being around Myrnin. And because of Amelie's unhappiness, other vampires are starting to question her fitness to rule Morganville... and Claire finds herself in the middle of it.

Perhaps most distressingly, Eve has a new best buddy -- the manipulative, gorgeous "cool-girl" Goth Kim, who is also an ex-hookup of Shane's, and still holds a torch. When you have a bad sunburn, that is NOT what you want.

Unfortunately, Morganville is starting to splinter apart without Amelie's guidance -- the streets are full of brutal vampires and even more brutal vampire-killing mobs. When Kim goes missing, Claire and her friends discover a secret scheme that threatens the very existence of Morganville... and not only must Claire stop it, but she must avoid being killed by an increasingly crazed Ada, who wants Myrnin all to herself. And she's becoming too powerful to stop.

"Fade Out" starts off relatively fluffy, with Claire effectively having the worst day in the world, while her friends prepare for a rock concert and a goth production of "A Streetcar Named Desire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too Feb. 27 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The battle for Morganville is over and life is relatively normal.

Claire is back in classes and working in Myrnin's lab. She notices something evil and unnatural about Ada, as if the computer brain that protects Morganville is jealous of Claire.

Quickly, life changes back to crazy when Eve discovers a new friend also involved in the town play. Suddenly, she's too busy to hang out with Claire. Plus, this new girl used to date Shane and it's clear that her feelings for him haven't disappeared. Claire's consumed with jealously even after they learn about Kimberly's disappearance and her shocking hobby.

Amelie's struggling with her mental health and her stability while a new rogue vampire, Morley, gains a certain amount of power.

Everything combined could threaten Claire's world and that of her friends in a deadly dangerous way. Will they be forced to make a perilous choice?

Life is never dull in Morganville, where drama and vampires rarely sleep. Rachel Caine keeps the action fast-paced and throws in twists and turns you'll never see coming.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in Morganville Nov. 14 2009
By Tamela Mccann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
How wrong is it that I stretched a 220+ page book out for five days because I didn't want to see it end? Hopefully not too wrong, because once I was back in Morganville, I didn't want to leave.

Fade Out is book # 7 in Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampire series, coming after the drama with evil Bishop has ended and things are supposedly "back to normal" (or as normal as it can be when the town is run by vampires). Main character Claire Danvers is back in class at Texas Prairie University, still with boyfriend Shane, and again working with slightly off-center vampire Myrnin. Michael's adjusting to life as a vampire, and Goth girl Eve has earned a part in the town's new play. The problem comes when castmate Kim suddenly shows up and inserts herself between not only Claire and Eve, but Claire and Shane. Something's just not quite right about Kim, but Claire starts to feel as though she's the only one who sees the problem...until Kim goes missing and her dirty little secret comes to light.

Love, love, love the characters in this tremendous series, and I love that our vampire friends are showing more range in emotion and fallibility. Amelie, the vampire who founded Morganville, is still mourning the loss of lover Sam; Oliver, Eve's former boss and Amelie's next in command, is showing signs of irritation over the way things are being run; and Myrnin, dear, odd, funny Myrnin, is in denial about computer Ada's intentions. Sides are being drawn once again between those vampires in charge and those who have gone rogue, and Claire and her friends are finding themselves caught firmly in the middle.

It's a testament to Ms. Caine's imagination that this series is improving instead of becoming stale, and the fact that both brains and loyalties are being tested shows that she's not willing to settle for the obvious. There is lots of action but also lots of humor in this novel; it's Myrnin's antics that made me laugh and long for my own set of vampire bunny slippers. Claire's dedication to doing what's right, even when it doesn't necessarily feel right, moves the book subtly along, and the growing relationship between Shane and Claire also is well done. The book ends on a cliffhanger (sigh), so naturally I'll be waiting restlessly for the next installment. Here's hoping it's a bit longer so I won't feel the need to ration myself while reading in order to stay in Morganville.

Unfortunately, Morganville is starting to splinter apart without Amelie's guidance -- the streets are full of brutal vampires and even more brutal vampire-killing mobs. When Kim goes missing, Claire and her friends discover a secret scheme that threatens the very existence of Morganville... and not only must Claire stop it, but she must avoid being killed by an increasingly crazed Ada, who wants Myrnin all to herself. And she's becoming too powerful to stop.

"Fade Out" starts off relatively fluffy, with Claire effectively having the worst day in the world, while her friends prepare for a rock concert and a goth production of "A Streetcar Named Desire." And for the first two thirds, Caine spins out a series of subplots that just go flying in every direction, seemingly unconnected to each other... until she lashes them together, and the plot blossoms into a brilliant, action-packed triple finale.

And Caine's writing is up to the task, since she's equally good at blending stories of romantic rivalry and rock concerts with horrific tales of vampiric invasion. She conjures some truly horrendous moments that might make your skin crawl (the giant spider, "tunnel rats," and Ada's frequent homicidal shrieks and mad laughter), but also peppers her story with generous amounts of humor, a lot of which comes from Myrnin's crazy outfits (pirate hippie!) and hilarious dialogue (""Goodness. I don't think I should be watching this. I don't think I'm old enough").

And there are some big changes in Morganville by the end. Not epic ones (the status quo is pretty much the same), but things will be different for the main cast and the vampires.

And despite being at the center of vampire power struggles, Claire remains a pleasantly ordinary character -- she's nerdy, she feels jealous, she attends classes, and she walks around for half the book with peeling skin. But she has a lot of backbone, facing down potentially homicidal vampires with nothing more than guts and a pointy object. And the kooky Myrnin adopts a spider ("I shall call him Bob"), gets electrocuted, and is fleshed out even further with a bittersweet loss.

"Fade Out" is a delicious urban fantasy read that seems fluffy at first, but quickly accelerates into a dark, funny, deeply creepy little novel. Here's hoping for many more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Seventh book still as fresh as ever. Nov. 8 2009
By Pacey1927 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rachel Caine does it again! Nov. 6 2009
By Ellz Readz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Nov. 9 2009
By J. Alderton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I really enjoyed this book. The story is fast moving and exciting. I like that the relationship between Claire and Shane seems to be maturing. Sometimes after 5-6 books a series can get a bit boring but this is book 7 in the Morganville Vampire series and I found it anything but boring! Keep them coming Rachel Caine! Can't wait for book 8.
