Book Description

11 Jan 2010 Morganville Vampires
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 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.

More About the Author

Rachel Caine is the author of more than fifteen novels, including the Morganville Vampires and Weather Warden series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and still carries on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Pop-eye and Darwin, a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O'Malley, and a leopard tortoise named Shelly (for the poet, of course).

5.0 out of 5 stars a wonderful read 24 May 2010
By Rebecca
I can't believe the genius that is Rachel Caine. How it is possible to have so many unique storylines for the same series that will always hook you in, leave you guessing right to the very last page, and never get old, or disappoint in any way, is beyond me. Rachel Caine is simply amazing, and with Fade Out, she's done it again!

So, with Carpe Corpus, the sixth book in the series, we had the end of the six book long story arc. Knowing how awesome Rachel Caine is, I knew Fade Out would be good, but I had absolutely no idea where she could possibly take the characters of Morganville now. Amelie had given humans equality with vampires, Bishop was dead, everything is just dandy now, surely? What else could possibly happen? Well, I've already said Rachel is a genius. I would say Fade Out is the first book of the Morganville Vampires series 2. There is more that can happen, and it's going to span over more books!

As I said, it feels like two separate series to me, but there is enough of a connection between Carpe Corpus and Fade Out that it's pretty seamless. It annoys me, but I am unable to talk about this connection - which is not all the characters we've come to love and hate, who still show up in Fade Out - without spoiling the story, so you're just going to have to take my word for it.

Fade Out has the all the action we except from a Morganville Vampire novel, but most of it doesn't come along until much later in the book. There are a few incidents here and there in the first half, which are big in their own way, but they don't result in the rollercoaster of action, fighting, fear and danger we're used to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Potential...but ultimately falls flat 28 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After 6 books that are all continuing plots, this 7th book is pretty much the start of a new plot arch in the Morganville world. Things have calmed down for the 4 teen housemates, to a certain extent, and things appear to be a little safer. But then some new vamps show up and things start getting messy again.

I finished this book days ago, and still can't figure out if I hate it, or if it's simply okay. On the good side, Claire is showing she's done some serious (and much needed) growing up. There is the introduction to Kim, a girl who rapidly becomes Eve's new BFF and leaves Claire wondering what's going on and very jealous, and jealous too of Shane's (her boyfriend) previous relationship with Kim. Both of which are realistic and I'm sure teens reading the book will easily relate to the feelings expressed. Another good side plot is Michael's torn loyalties to the vampires and his human friends, and the strain it puts his relationship with Eve under. All of these things had me interested and enjoying the book.

However, there are several plots here that really don't work. Amelie, Morganville's unapproachable and unrelenting founder, is a completely different character here. She spends most of the book upset and not her usual 'white marble' self, which is both disappointing and annoying. The plot revolving around Kim, could have been good I think, but the main focus of anger and upset ends up on certain aspects that whilst yes, give cause for the reactions, should not have become the sole focus as they did. Likewise, the characters reactions, Eve's in particular, to the betrayal from another character seemed very weak and far too forgiving.

The other main plot involves Ada, the computer/ghost/vampire that 'runs' Morganville unseen.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read all the Morganville books so far, some I've preferred to others but essentially they are a good read. I would recommend you read the other books in the series before reading this or it might not make a whole lot of sense.

The main four characters return, although everything isn't quite so rosy as it has been in the past. I thought the part with the spider(s) kind of b movie daft and for someone supposed to be so super intelligent Claire sure is stupid on many, many occasions. I agree with other reviews that maybe this series was due to finish at book six and it has been extended, although I still enjoyed it a lot of the story was quite predictable while other parts came out of left field and added nothing to the storyline as far as I could see.

The part that totally threw me was when vampire Oliver revealed his date and place of birth, casting allusions to the fact that he's Oliver Cromwell (place and date of birth tally as does age at 'death'), I know he's constantly plotting to take power but please!. So if you've read 1-6 you'll probably want to read it, if you haven't, read the others first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not excellent 9 May 2010
I really hate to say this, but I was a tiny bit disappointed by Fade Out. Honestly, I was really worried about the story in this book, seeing that the battle with Bishop ended in Carpe Corpus, and all was right with Morganville again.I knew of course that peace in Morganville can never be, so I was expecting another great story to replace that of Bishop's.And that's where the book kinda fell short, in my opinion.

Reading the Morganville books up until Fade Out, you get not only amazing and multi-dimensional characters, but also a story so gripping and compelling that you cannot, for any reason,put the book down.I cannot possibly say that these aspects that make a Morganville vampire book so good, were not part of Fade Out,as well.Only, they were not at the level I was used to, that of excellence.It's understandable, though,after the end of a three-book intense arc story, for the plot not to be as exciting and the characters not to be as developed.One of the stories,Ada's,even though it had a lot of potential, it didn't work out in the end.I liked Kim's story, the whole exposition concept was great, but its resolution was simple and quick.However I believe that despite the book's flaws, and because Rachel Caine IS Rachel Caine and she will always be brilliant, Amelie's scene in the cemetery is the best scene in all Morganville books.Genious!
Overall, a good book but not get very high hopes.I blame it on Rachel Caine:she has spoiled me with her amazing writing and now I can't settle for anything but perfection :)

*This one is without a cliff hanger,as well.
