Book Review: Ghost Town by Rachel Caine

When Claire is ordered the systems that protect Morganville, it's not just cutting into her study time, it's a life-threatening problem. If there's one thing this vampire0infested town is serious about, it's security.
But achieving the impossible only brings a whole new set of problems, and the upgrades have unexpected consequences: people inside the town are sowly beginning to 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.
- From the back of the book.

Ghost Town is the 9th book in the Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine, and it is one of my favourite series of all time. It's so full of action, romance, suspense, drama, everything a good series needs. And, there are 9 books in the series so far, which makes it even better.

Ghost Town takes place just after Kiss of Death. Claire is working with Myrnin to repair the machine that used to be Ada, to protect the town, by getting the barriers back up and the memory control back into place. Claire is working as hard as she can, and finally she does it, or so she thinks. The town is slowly going crazy, and people are losing their memories, even the vampires, which is NOT good. Claire must put all her brain power into thinking of a way to fix the town's memory problem, before she forgets what she has to do...

I love Claire, and I'm pretty sure I say that every time I read one of these books, but I'm going to say it again. She's so determined to do everything right, and I love how she and her friends are so close, and stick together no matter what. She's really strong in Ghost Town, and she has to cope with so much, yet she still manages to get through it, and come out stronger because of it. I won't say what she has to go through, but it's heartbreaking, and you can't help but feel for her.

And Shane. Well, what can I say? He's just the same funny, loveable character that he always is. I love all the characters in this series, and I think they are definitely what I love most about the books. As you read, you share their emotions, and feel happy or sad along with them. They're awesome.

Anyway, onto Ghost Town. There's not really much I can say about this book without spoiling the previous 8, but I'll try. As usual, the plot was fast moving and entertaining, and I couldn't stop turning pages, even when it was in the small hours of the morning. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and ends on a major cliffhanger, so I'll definitely be eagerly awaiting the release of Bite Club, Morganville Vampires #10! I cannot wait, it's going to be amazing.

I give it 5 Feet!


  1. Great review! I love that Claire is determined to do everything right and close to her friends! Definitely adding this to my TBR pile. :)

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!

Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 

While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
