"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 freedom, 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 to work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realise that this film project, featuring the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger - and way more dangerous - than anyone suspected..."
There is only one word to describe this book and that word is, WOW.
Fade Out by Rachel Caine is the 7th book in the Morganville Vampire series and I have got to say it is one of the best.
Fade Out carries on where Carpe Corpus left off and their is no confusion in what is happening when you get onto the next one. It captures you from the very start and not making you want to put the book down...at all.
The book starts off with a little introduction to the Morganville life and also the rules, then starts to lead on to the start of the chapter by Eve getting accepted to play the role of Blanche DuBois at their local theatre. It's a big thing for Eve since she was a little girl to be in a play.
But all doesn't run so smoothly as she starts to befriend a girl named Kim.
Kim comes over as a nice chick, a cool girl. Though Claire doesn't seem to interested in her, when Eve starts to hang around with her more completely shutting Claire out of their friendship circle, and Kim starts to flirt with Shane, which is also not too good for poor Claire as she starts to get jealous of Kim.
Micheal says not to worry about it and that it's just the way Kim has always been, but Claire is not too sure.
Things start to get deeper and scarier for Claire in Morganville than she ever expected:
*New vampires in town
*Amelie depressed over her lover's death (which leaves her uncontrolled of Morganville)
*Oliver acting more creepy than usual (But what's new?)
And the Morganville main computer is ill...Ada.
Ada is jealous of Claire being Myrnin's assistant and wants to get revenge on her, simply because she was Myrnin's wife long ago and Myrnin hurt her...Big time. With Ada getting more ill by the instant Claire starts to come clear of what is happening, she's trying to kill her. Dragging Claire through dangerous portals, and death traps, Claire never knows what will happen.
Kim is not all goody-two-shoes as everyone thinks she is, she has a history through the town and they don't like her. Claire starts to dig deeper into the strange mystery of Kim and finds something shocking. With Eve, Shane and Michael on her side, they troop through her apartment and find something they did not want to find. Videos, Vampire interviews and an Internet source. Something that Morganville don't have without permission. And daily video blogs stating on where Kim is, what she's doing and how long she has been doing this for.
Eve starts to wonder if the Videos will be broadcast outside of Morganville and is so, the world will know their secret. That vampires exist which means it will get ugly and dangerous and if so, Morganville will be destroyed.
The bad news is that there are 70 cameras over Morganville and Kim is missing, and copies have been made. Which is bad, very bad. Personal things have been filmed on those camera's and there are some planted in the Glass House residents. One in Shane's room (Which not good since Kim has a giant crush on him) One in Micheal's room, the bathroom and living room.
With the chase on to find Kim and stop Ada from killing Claire and possibly Myrnin, the fate of Morganville is in their hands.
And will they stop it?
I loved this book! I thought it was amazing (And I know that you may think that I'm been all for one on Rachel Caine but I'm not) I think it's an amazing book and one of the best books so far by Caine. The book garbs you right from the start and for me it was very hard to put down. I read about 4 chapters a day, that's how good it was :)
Fade Out made me gasp in shock and horror, feel sad for the characters and also laugh in many places. It also made me smile a lot because there are many parts that are strange and creepy and you think 'Omg what's going to happen?' and
'No how could you do that?!' But also there were many that made you think aw and cute.
Morganville Vampires is one of the greatest book series I have read since Harry potter and I love every moment of reading them.
Like always I recommend them for people who like to read a good action packed, romance and also with some awesome vampires. (And not the mushy ones you get from Twilight) Real ones where they bleed people dry to the bone. This for you :)
Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year! :)
