This is a review of “Kiss of Death” by Rachel Caine. It is book 8 in the Morganville Vampires Series. It follows on from “Fade Out“.
As this book is a part of a series, the following review may reveal some details of the previous novel/s. Do not read if you intend to read this series in the future and don’t want to know of any potential plot spoilers.
Claire and her friends have made a deal with the devil. Well, ok, Morley. But he’s plenty evil enough himself. He wants Claire to use her influence with Amelie to score him and his vampy followers passes to leave Morganville. What was the other side of the deal? Oh. That Claire and her friends could live. Claire is hoping that Amelie will help her out…
Everyone in Morganville knows that Michael Glass is rockin’. And an out-of-town music producer from Dallas wants the world to know it too. But how could vampire Michael ever leave (indeed, even be allowed to leave) Morganville? It’d be an interesting road trip to say the least. And it’s more than likely they’ll all find out, because although Amelie has given Claire some leave passes, they’ve not got Morley’s name on them. They’ve got hers, and her friends.
And so begins the road trip. And it’s really not all fun and games. It’s scary, drama filled and life threatening. And they’ve got a killer chaperone.
I really enjoyed this installment in the Morganville Series. Full of sassy dialogue, plot twists and turns, excitement and a smidge of romance, it’s a great novel.
