Fade Out - Rachel Caine

"Without the evil vampire Bishop ruling over the town of Morganville, the resident vampires have made major concessions to the human population. With their newfound freedoms, Claire Danvers and her friends are almost starting to feel comfortable again... - Almost.
Now Claire can actually concentrate on her studies, and her friend Eve joins the local theatre company. But when one of Eve's castmates goes missing after starting work on a short documentary, Eve suspects the worst. Claire and Eve soon realize that this film project, whose subject is the vampires themselves, is a whole lot bigger-and way more dangerous-than anyone suspected. " -Book Cover

Fade Out is the 7th round in the Morganville Vampires series and it never cease to amaze. I'll be honest with you, I was kind of scared the story would get old with Bishop gone and most enemies under control but I was wrong! Caine surprised us with a brand new twist in the Morganville saga, and I never saw it coming. I find myself craving for the next book, impatient to know what Caine's got up her sleeve.

I find it hard to resume the plot of that book without giving spoilers so I will refrain from doing it, but you have to know there is one new character introduced in the series. Kim, another goth girl in town, plays in the city's last production with Eve, and she's hiding more then anyone suspects.
Kim is very popular, loved by everyone but Claire can't stand the sight (or thought) of her. Does it have to do with the fact that she dated Shane in the past?

Our favorite vampires are indeed at the rendez-vous with more suspense and originality, and Mirnin really stole my heart in that instalment. I love his craziness, corkiness and uniqueness. The guy wears 17th century clothing with fanged-bunny slippers. Do I need to say more?
Ada will also play a bigger part this time, for better or for worst!
If you haven't picked that series yet, it is a great vampire series that detach from the vampire romance stream. Vampires aren't "vegetarian", nice or sexy (ok Michael is...), they are dangerous, vicious and can't be trusted. They will scare you, imprison you and tax you (in blood indeed).
Welcome to Morganville!
