Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine – Books 6, 7 and 8

Carpe Corpus (The Morganville Vampires, #6)Carpe Corpus by Rachel Caine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The sixth book of the Morganville Vampire series, again picking up right where the story left off in the last book. Claire and her friends, vampire and human are left fighting for their town and trying to find a cure.

This entire series just seems to be one long continuous book really, so many different things intertwined into each addition. A few things will finish with each book but others are always left up in the air. I’ve become hooked on finding out where the entire thing is going to lead and how Morganville will end up. Never quite know what to expect and where the story will go from book to book.

Fade Out (The Morganville Vampires, #7)Fade Out by Rachel Caine
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Fade Out is the seventh book in the Morganville Vampire series. Continuing on where the sixth left off this is a rebuilding time for Morganville. Bishop is no longer around, Amelie is grieving, some new rogue vampires are introduced and an old flame of Shane’s shows up in town.

Not one of my favorites of the series by any means. I’d say the theme to this book was jealousy, not very intriguing really. The action slowed down quite a bit and what there was seemed a little predictable. Hopefully the story picks back up in the next book.

Kiss of Death (The Morganville Vampires, #8)Kiss of Death by Rachel Caine
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kiss of Death is the eighth book in the Morganville Vampire series. Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael are granted permission to leave Morganville and take a road trip to Dallas to a recording studio that wants Michael. Of course with anything thing this group takes on it doesn’t turn out as planned.

Kind of another slower edition of the series. There are some good moments in it but with most of the cast of characters back in Morganville it felt a bit on the dull side. Couldn’t help but miss crazy old Myrnin and his kookiness and the couple of characters from the town that did show up weren’t my favorites. It also, took a while for any action to occur and then when it did it seemed over in a blink of the eye.
