I mean everything has been pretty consistent lately and I either like or dislike everyone. I'm glad that Claire went from annoying as fuck to someone I could tolerate during small moments throughout the book. They all get in trouble or put themselves in dangerous situations throughout the book which doesn't surprise me one bit.
I'm hoping the next book will be better or at least keep my interest. Jul 25, Olivia rated it it was amazing.
The Morganville Vampires has slowly become one of my favorite series. This past year I read them non-stop, so I read Kiss of Death sparingly until deciding to finish it yesterday. After books 6 and 7, it was time to have some happy thoughts. Knowing Rachel Caine, however, I knew it would not last long and I love her for that. One thing I have to say about the Morganville Vamps series is that it never, ever st The Morganville Vampires has slowly become one of my favorite series.
One thing I have to say about the Morganville Vamps series is that it never, ever stops moving. If it's not one thing it's another. I felt this book--for the most part--kept up the pace. Rachel Caine has created an amazing, interesting society and world of vampires and in these past few books I've been shifting between sad and happy to see it destroyed. Sad because I do enjoy the vampires and want them to lead good lives only drinking donated blood mind you and happy because of course I want our main, human characters to break free from the oppression of the vampires.
Between Bishop and Morley, the delicate town that Amelie built has slowly fallen apart and we continue to see that in Kiss of Death as Morley and his crew take their leave. One great part about this book is I finally saw Claire really change. When it hit me that she had changed when she shoots Morley I also realized that over the course of the series she had been slowly evolving as a character. It was in that moment, though, that it just all fell into place. I think it hit me because she finally stood up for herself, full force. And it was great.
Claire is smart, resilient, and resourceful--but now she is also dangerous. One thing I always hated about Claire was that she never seemed to make the first move. She always just reacted when Monica finally made good on her threats, instead of moving first. This time Claire hit first and I'm hoping that we'll see more as the series continues.
Kiss of Death was needed in order to remind the readers that the characters we love and want to leave Morganville no longer belong anywhere else. Claire, Eve, Shane, and Michael caused trouble in each town they went to until they were able to actually do good in the town crawling with feral vampires. Even when they finally make it to Dallas, Michael mentions that their trip and happiness is only temporary--and that's the way it has to be. That thought is soon reinforced when Amelie calls to remind the group that Morganville is where they belong, whether they like it or not.
This is where my favorite moment of the entire book comes in. This one moment made the book for me. Oliver is one of my favorite characters in the series. He reminds me of Snape from Harry Potter, because I still don't know where he stands. Is he a good guy, but simply realistic? Or is he truly evil? I'm still not sure. What I do know is through the past few books in the series, I have begun to see different sides of Oliver that will hopefully help me find the answer.
As Michael, Claire, Shane, and Eve are frozen by Amelie's cruel warnings, Oliver tells them to be ready in the morning and enjoy the rest of the night while it lasts. At the last moment, Oliver turns and quickly says, "And I am sorry. But I loved it! I think that moment showed that if Oliver could somehow prevent Claire and her friends from ever stepping foot in Morganville he would probably, hopefully do it. Then again I'm still confused as heck about Oliver's character but I'm going to enjoy this Nice Guy moment while I can.
All in all Kiss of Death really surprised me.
Kiss of Death: The Morganville Vampires Book Eight by Rachel Caine - Penguin Books Australia
I thought leaving Morganville behind would mean leaving the action and story behind, as well. Wow, did I ever miss these guys!!!! Reading a Morganville book is like welcoming home friends you haven't seen in six months, the visits are always to fast and you wish they'd stay forever. So what's going on with our favorite foursome? Dallas wants Michael to go and record some of his music and despite the fact that they need to get passes to Morley and his flock, Michael, Eve, Claire and Shane are finally, FINALLY going to be able to leave hells-town and set off to find some adventure and maybe even some fun.
Oh, wait, I forgot to mention that they'll be needing a chaperon to accompany them and lets just say-- "go figures" Of course it's never that easy for the fabulous four and soon enough our friends find themselves in trouble, once again I've said this before and I'll say it again.
I love, adore and worship this series! Caine's signature characters; Michael, Eve, Claire and Shane have got to be some of the funnest and funniest characters I ever did read. There slams, wit, banter and sarcasm has always left a per-a-smile plastered on my face, while some of the romantic moments always makes me gush like a teenager.
Fast paced and action packed did you really expect anything else? Kiss of Death is yet another Caine perfection that I couldn't get enough! Crazy entertaining and exciting! This book was a total blast! Six more months till Ghost Town and I'm already counting down the days: View all 19 comments.

I liked that the gang finally got out of Morganville for a while, but I missed Myrnin like crazy. This series is one of my favorite ever. I never feel bored, and this is saying something because after 8 books, I'm still looking forward to the next one. How many series can accomplish that?
The best thing i There are some spoilers in this review, I'm sorry I do have a few complaints about this book, but they are purely for selfish reasons. The best thing in this book for me were Claire and Shane. Claire is turning into quite the badass, stabbing a vamp with a pencil, shooting arrows, The gesture is very romantic, but that piece of jewelry belongs to only one couple: I get how Eve feels but she's starting to get too clingy for my tastes, so I hope she gets some of her fierceness back soon.

When he makes then stop in a one horse town with a order to stay put until he can get back, the gang gets extremely annoyed, and then wind up getting themselves into major trouble. However, that is nothing compared to the trouble and danger they get into when the vampire's agenda is revealed. It may just be the worst situation they have been in yet, and that is really saying something. The four of them really didn't seem to understand just how different things are outside of Morganville. They are used to being tough, and well known in the town, basically near the top of the "food chain.
When it got her into trouble Michael of course steps up all "tough vampire" to protect her, putting himself and the rest at a major risk.

Claire as always is able to keep her wits about her and figures out how to get them out of that first mess, and proceeds to give them a lecture on their behavior. I love how she is described as tiny little non-threatening thing, but she always surprises those who try to stand against her and her friends. While outside of Morganville, the four of them seriously entertain running off and never coming back. As much as they might want to leave the town, I think they are actually better off staying put. Call me crazy, but it might just be safer for them. Morganville changed all of them and they would really have a hard time fitting in on the outside.
At least in Morganville they have earned some status that protect them. Besides, they know it is only a recipe for disaster to try and leave as Amelie would do everything she could to hunt them down. At least by staying they will be on her "good" side, if you can call it that. The action dialed right back up in this book.
The stakes were incredibly high, and I found it amusing to see just how much trouble the four of them could get into outside of Morganville. It kinda follows along with the saying "You can take the girl out of the city, but you can't take the city out of the girl. I've always been the type of person to try and make the best of things and I think that's what they need to do as well.
I'm eager to see how they take this renewed idea of being trapped in the next book. It should be interesting to say the least. I wanted to read this one because I have been hardcore addicted to this series, and it is so nice that they are all released and I don't have to play the waiting game. I love the pink laundry, the softer side of Eve even though its hard to see her insecure and not fully understanding where things stand, not only with Michael but with her newly reformed brother.
I did enjoy seeing Michael in his element with the rock star deal, but he seemed more distant in this one and I was afraid that I would I wanted to read this one because I have been hardcore addicted to this series, and it is so nice that they are all released and I don't have to play the waiting game. I did enjoy seeing Michael in his element with the rock star deal, but he seemed more distant in this one and I was afraid that I would lose the caring, protective and cuddly Michael to the hardened vampire persona.
One quote I love though that describes the development of Shane's character and how being in love and living out his protective streak is changing him. The universe explodes, hell freezes over and Shane does something reasonable.
See a Problem?
What started out and what they hoped would be a nice taste of freedom from Morganville and a good time with friends, of course, couldn't be just that with this group of friends. They found trouble in so many ways. Some of it their escort helped them get into and others they did just fine getting into it all own their own. There were some steamy moments with Shane and Claire to keep me going. And Myrnin was there for part of it, and I love our crazy vamp. Claire mentioned at one point in time that he was both mad and brilliant, and it battled which would exhibit in any given moment.
The ending was perfect but bittersweet. As many of you may have guessed, I will def be continuing this series. The trouble they always seemed to find had me on my toes. Oct 22, Peace Love and Reviews rated it it was amazing. This is too awesome. Our awesome foursome is back again with more adventure and more dangerous situations outside Morganville. Yes, can you believe it? I never thought the day would come. We were left wondering how the hell can Claire fulfill his promise to the new villain vampire Morley.
It always seems to be a moot point when situations like these arise. Yet Claire and Amelie always surprise us. In this book Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve is granted a pass to leave Morganville for a week, chape This is too awesome. In this book Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve is granted a pass to leave Morganville for a week, chaperoned by Oliver, to accompany Michael to Dallas to see a potential record deal. It was a very exciting prospect for a road trip, not even Oliver's looming presence can dampen their mood. On their way to Dallas, Oliver announced an unprecedented stop on a small town named Durram where trouble started brewing.
They soon found themselves in the middle of another vampire revolt that lead them to Blacke where Bishop left his wake of vampires with infections. It was one heck of a crazy ride. As usually, Caine did not disappoint. I love where this series is going and it is going strong. I miss a whole lot of Myrnin humor on this book and that snarky attitude from Monica but everything else was just perfect.
Every sequel gives us a lot of breath taking action and some killer thrill and it always ends with "I want the next book now! And what about the Claire-Shane romance? It has become more intense on the emotional scale. My friend Tina from GoodReads was right reading a Morganville book is like welcoming back home friends.

Then when they do, someone catches they're car on fire. Shane Best Friend Material: I think I tend to start my reviews of this series with "another great entry in the series I've noticed that this one has gotten mixed reviews so far, mainly it seems because outside of Morganville, many of the cast and crew have been left behind.
But you know what, I think it's just what the series needed. The gang was back together, and danger and hilarity ensued. Suddenly vampires weren't th Hmm Suddenly vampires weren't the only things the housemates had to fear - redneck America was also out to get them. Shane was hilarious, as usual, and played off Eve, Michael and Claire brilliantly. There wasn't a whole lot of development for Michael, short for a scene where he glimpsed Eve's future. Basically, I think this was great fun and a much needed detour out of Morganville to bring the housemates back together and prepare us for more adventures with Myrnin, Amelie, Oliver and Monica.

What really made me sad is Michael: I always thought he was great even if he was kind of mean and cold blooded Well, can't wait for Ghost Town!!!!

She never ceases to amaze me. I absolutely devoured this book. As much as I love Claire and the gang remind me that I never want to go on a road-trip with them! I think they do about everything possibly except make it to their destination. Well, I guess they do in the end. Their lives are never dull, I give them that much.
It seems like she always has something up her sleeve that takes me off guard! This book comes with a massive hooray and a massive boo, unfortunately. We get a hooray as we finally head out of town! I felt as though there was less action in this one, but that may be because it is all so confined. Rather than being spread out across the entire book at an equal rate it all appea This book comes with a massive hooray and a massive boo, unfortunately. Rather than being spread out across the entire book at an equal rate it all appears around the same time, which kills the buzz somewhat.
Dec 03, Carrie rated it liked it. Kiss of Death is the eighth book in the Morganville Vampire series. Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael are granted permission to leave Morganville and take a road trip to Dallas to a recording studio that wants Michael. Of course with anything thing this group takes on it doesn't turn out as planned. Kind of another slower edition of the series. There are some good moments in it but with most of the cast of characters back in Morganville it felt a bit on the dull side.
Couldn't help but miss crazy o Kiss of Death is the eighth book in the Morganville Vampire series. Couldn't help but miss crazy old Myrnin and his kookiness and the couple of characters from the town that did show up weren't my favorites. It also, took a while for any action to occur and then when it did it seemed over in a blink of the eye. May 05, Nic rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the 8th installment and I'm still having a fantastic time reading this series.
In this book Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve get a pass to go on a road trip but there is a catch, they have to take a certain undead escort. And of course where ever they go trouble is sure to follow. What I love most about this series it has a perfect blend of action, adventure, romance and humor. Claire is such an awesome character and in this book she didn't disappoint. She really kicked some ass! Shane is delicious putting his heart out there for Claire. I love the scence where he says to her "Your the future, Claire".
And of course I love the witty dialogue between the four main characters. They always manage to crack me up. A must read for Morganville fans. View all 26 comments. This and my other reviews can be found at http: Claire has grown up so much in these eight books as she so much more confident and assertive than the girl in Glass Houses.
