Review: Ghost Town by Rachel Caine
About- 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...
THIS REVIEW WILL CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS!!!
My Review- As always, I just adore the Morganville Vampire Series. Rachel Caine never writes anything boring or a been there, done that book. And she always keeps us waiting on our toes for the next book in the series.
In Ghost Town, Claire has to fix the machine that runs the town since Ada got destroyed. Without it, the town defenses will be down, including the portals and the town barriers.
After some sort of incident, Claire has to finish working on the machine without any rest, to the point were she feels like just passing out. Once she finished, she thought everything would turn out just fine, but of course, it doesn't. Within the next day, she encounters one to two people who had forgotten something completely or temporarily.
As the novel progresses, we start to see some of Claire's friends get affected too. But in order to save Morganville, Claire has to get access to the Control Room under Myrnin's lab, but that is kinda hard to do when Myrnin also loses his memory and does not even remember who Claire is, or what happen to Ada.
Now, I don't want to give everything away just in case some of you are reading this but has not read the book yet. But as you can see, this book is anything, but boring. The ending is such a cliffhanger too. The cover looks great, but I feel like they could have done a better job. I guess that the girl on the cover could pass for Claire. I really recommend this book, and I just cannot wait till I get my hands on the copy of the 10th book of the Morganville Vampire series Bite Club.
