Kiss Of Death (The Morganville Vampires, #8) by Rachel Caine

Release Date: April 27, 2010
Publisher: Signet
Age Group: Young Adult, more suited to older readers
Pages: 256


Vampire musician Michael Glass has attracted the attention of a big- time producer who wants to cut a demo and play some gigs-which means Michael will have to enter the human world. For this, he's been assigned escorts that include both a dangerous immortal as well as Michael's all-too-human friends. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell...

My Review:

Kiss of death starts off with Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael finding out they were all granted passes to leave Morganville so Michael can record some songs in Dallas but their delight in leaving Morganville is only short lived once they find out who their chaperone is, Oliver. A simple trip to Dallas quickly turns into a nightmare when their drive to Dallas doesn’t go exactly to plan when Oliver decides to take a detour without Claire, Shane, Eve and Michaels knowledge. Soon after the detour the group has to survive a few obstacles such as being arrested, having a car trashed, being kidnapped, encountering a town of crazy vampires and dealing with vampire hating humans.

Rachel Caine has done it again, I could not put this book down I burned through it, this series keeps getting better and better. Throughout the series Claire has developed into an extremely strong and brave character and kiss of death only adds to this. I particularly enjoyed the part where she decided not to take anymore of Monica’s demands and sets her up with the help of an unwitting Oliver, pure genius. The relationship between Claire and Shane also develops more with Shane giving Claire his sisters’ ring which is a really big step for Shane who has had issues dealing with his emotions throughout the books. At the start of the book we see that Eve is second guessing her relationship with Michael because she is scared she’s losing him, however Eves fears about her relationship takes a back-seat when the action starts. Kiss of death is another great addition to the Morganville series, I cannot wait until Ghost Town comes out in October!
