Spoiler alert! I know you’re probably tired of getting these warnings, but they’re for your own good. If you haven’t read books 1-6 of The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine, don’t read this post. Spoilers are ahead!
So, as you’ve gathered from the warning above, I’ve just finished the seventh book in Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires series, Fade Out. I feel really sorry for the main characters in these books. They just cannot catch a break. And things aren’t going to get much better anytime soon. I found out recently that there are going to be at least twelve books in this series. (I’m about to start reading the eighth book, and the ninth is due out in October.) The mayhem continues.
In Fade Out, Claire and the gang are getting back to their normal lives…or normal for them anyway. There is a somewhat tentative peace between humans and vampires at the moment, but it could fall apart at any second. Claire is continuing her work with the moderately sane Myrnin and his crazy supercomputer, Ada. (It’s a really complicated, disturbing relationship. You’ll just have to read about this one for yourself.) Things are going well with Claire and her boyfriend, Shane. Michael is getting some serious attention for his music. And Eve has just been cast as Blanche DuBois in the town’s production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
Seems super, right? Well, as I’m sure you’ve guessed by now, things are not quite as super as they seem. One of Eve’s co-stars in Streetcar is an enigmatic girl named Kim. Everyone seems to like Kim…except Claire, especially when she discovers that Kim and Shane have history. Claire just knows that Kim is rotten to the core, but she doesn’t want to seem like a super-jealous twit, so she keeps her mouth shut for the most part. Until she discovers what Kim’s been up to in Morganville. (No, I’m not going to tell you. That would ruin the whole book for you.) Claire knows Kim and whoever is working with her must be stopped, but how?
And that’s not all folks! Remember Myrnin’s supercomputer, Ada? Well, she’s officially gone off her nut and is determined to kill Claire so that she can have Myrnin all to herself. Now, I know you’re asking, “How is this possible? Ada is just a computer.” Have you not been paying attention? Nothing is really what it seems in Morganville, and Claire and the gang will have to use all their wits, plus some dealings with a few unsavory characters, to get out of this mess in tact. Join the insanity when you read Fade Out, the seventh book of The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine. Enjoy!
