Review - Ghost Town

Title - Ghost Town (Morganville Vampires Book 9)
Author - Rachel Caine
Genre - Paranormal/YA/Fiction
Pages - 352

While developing a new system to maintain Morganville's defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she's able to re-establish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders.
But the new upgrades have an unexpected consequence: people inside the town begin to slowly forget who they are-even the vampires. Soon, the town's little memory problem has turned into a full-on epidemic. Now Claire needs to figure out a way to pull the plug on her experiment- before she forgets how to save Morganville...

Starting Ghost Town i was a little wary, how was the story going to progress after Bishop?  i mean, he was the perfect villian. So Caine did something unexpected and terrific, she created the perfect villian, from inside morganville.

People are losing thier memories, and acting all shades of crazy. Claire has to figure out how to  stop the epidemic before she completely forgets how. The story is a tad slow in the beggining and it takes a good chunk of the book to get into the whole memory loss scenerio but when it does its back to tension and twists.

Every one is back. Myrnin, Amelie, Frank, Shane, Eve, Michael and all the others from the  past books. However, Jason was not in the book, I was a bit sad as i really do like Jason.  Everyone is as witty and fun as i remember and loyal too, Hell even Oliver got brownie points  this time!

The ending was shocking and kind of bitter-sweet, a great way to get you ready for the next book (Bite Club) Which comes out May 2nd 2011.
