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!
