        I wanted to read this one because it has been my personal pleasure in the last of 2014 (read this one end of December). I love the vampires, the relationship between our main character Claire, who is wicked smart and able to roll with the punches, and her hot boyfriend Shane. It has been heating up a lot and I love each book where they become closer through shared experiences. The mad scientist Myrnin is always fun and surprising to read about. The leader of the town Amelie and 2nd in command Oliver always are mysterious and their motives and goals seemingly ever changing. I love the plots and has been so fun to read. 




       The plot and pacing in Ghost Town did not disappoint. I read half of it in one night and would have read more if my meds didn't knock me out like a blow to the head. Claire finds herself in horrible situations again with impossible choices. It really tipped the power, and made her doubt if the new gained freedoms were all for show. And then the unthinkable happened and I was like oh my gosh. We learned so much from this one encounter and I felt such at a loss because some of the things that I thought wouldn't change in the series did. 




        Claire shows her raw intelligence and will power to survive and protect her friends once again in this one. And I keep on admiring her ingenuity, and loyalty.  We get to see to the heart of some of the characters when their memories are stripped three years. We see their actions as they struggle to deal with the losses that they are feeling all anew, the people they are now surrounded by where the relationship dynamics have changed if they even remember them at all. 




        Most of all though, the theme of redemption ran through this one. There are some sacrifices I never saw coming as well as alliances formed that aren't really expected. The action and character development was non-stop and it kept me entertained and engaged. 




        The ending was shocking and even though I probably should have seen parts of it coming, I didn't and when I reached the last page, I immediately wanted the next book in my hands.




    Bottom Line: Beloved characters facing all new challenges and range of emotions

    Good One

    I wasn't very impressed with the last two books in this series so I was pleasantly surprised! I think the author would do this series a great justice by cooking up a little relationship conflict for these power couples. She touched on it ever so slightly in this book and i immediately found a spark in my attention. I think the "love stories" in this series are just old married couple boring but I liked that Claire's character grew.

    Loved it!

    I was worried that I was going to be sick of reading this series, but guess what? This book was really good. I now know that I will not give up this series anytime soon.

    The intensity in the beginning was perfect to start off the book. There is not much that I could say that wouldn't spoil the book but I really liked it and I am looking forward to finding out what happens next!

    I have to say that for some reason, Eve is really getting on my nerves. As I remember, I thought I really liked her when I first started reading The Morganville Vampires.

    Can't wait!

    I love this series. Favorite characters: Clair, Shane, and Myrinn (Gah, I think I spelled his name wrong which totally proves I have bad memory). But I'm terrified to read this book. Yeah, I know I'm scared to read a book. Haha. But if people start to forget then would Claire and Shane forget each other and something goes horribly wrong? I'm just anxious to see what's going to happen. Each time I think about the next book I'm put on edge. Which is weird. But I love this series so much! And I'm only giving it four stars because she's making me wait so long. :) Heh.
