Ghost Town by Rachel Caine Book Review

Ghost Town by Rachel Caine

Publisher: NAL Hardcover

Publication Date: October 26th 2010

Pages: 335

Interest: Series (Morganville Vampires book 9)

Synopsis: Get ready for "non-stop vampire action" (Darque Reviews) in the latest Morganville Vampire novel from New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine.
While developing a new system to maintain Morganville's defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she's able to re-establish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders.
But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are-even the vampires. Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment- before she forgets how to save Morganville...

Surely, among the books in the series this is the book that jolts the tears out of me.
***Spoiler*** It’s so sad that Clare has to be devastated, and her friends doesn’t know her at all. And the saddest part of it is when she and Shane made a promise that they would not forget each other and when they woke up the next day he already did forget her. ***End of Spoiler***

            One of the things that I observed are the action scenes from this book are lesser than the previous ones, more drama for me.

            Although before, I prefer Michael to be Clare’s boyfriend than Shane, but this book I saw a deeper personality on Shane that convinced me to like him for Clare. It was described in this book that they have chemistry and they’re in sync.

            And it’s sad that Eve only has a small role or appearances on this book. I mean, she was just always in the background. And I missed her quirky dialogues which I loved from the previous books.

            And as the Morganville series goes on, it keeps getting better and better. Although I wouldn’t say that it’s my favorite book in the series but it’s one of the awesome ones.

            So if you want to be spooked by the typical vampires and get real action, hang on to Morganville and surely you will never get out of it.
