Fade Out - Book Review

Fade Out (The Morganville Vampires #7)
by Rachel Caine

What is it about:
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 freedoms, 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 localtheatrecompany. But when one of Eve’s castmates goes missingafter starting work on a shortdocumentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger—and way more dangerous—than anyone suspected.

What did I think of it:
I will confess: It took me some time to pick up this book, because I was scared my favorite character wouldn't be the same anymore after the events in the previous book.

And indeed there are changes to Myrnin's behavior, but luckily the core of his personality is largely the same. I was very happy with that, because for me Myrnin makes this series so fun to read. Without him, it would still be nice series, but not as cool as I think it is now.

The story in this book is not as tense as the previous book, but it's entertaining enough. There are some things happening that will have impact on the next books, and it looks like those might become a lot more suspenseful again.

What I don't like about this series, is the small digs at Eve's Goth appearance. I'm expecting that she'll turn into a boring beige girl somewhere in the future. But sadly enough books that don't deal out digs or negative remarks about Goths are a rarity.

All in all this is an enjoyable read, and I will continue reading this series.

Why should you read it:
It's a really nice Paranormal YA read.
