Kiss of Death Paperback
by Rachel Caine
Part of the Morganville Vampires series
Claire Danvers has a few things on her mind. First of all there is the laundry, which is now an unfortunate shade of pink.
Then there is her boyfriend, Shane, who is never too far from her thoughts.
Finally there is her best friend Eve's relationship problems.
As if life as a student wasn't complicated enough, Claire just happens to be studying in Morganville.
A town run by vampires. Trouble seems to follow Claire and her friends like a shadow and tonight is no exception to the rule.
They must find the most difficult documents for a vampire to acquire; people passes that will allow 'bad ass' Morley and his friends to leave Morganville.
But it's proving incredibly difficult, and with the odds seemingly stacked against them, the biggest question of all is...Will they survive?

Review by lewispike
This book fairly romps along as our heroes are given a pass to get out of Morganville for a week so Michael can be recorded in a professional studio.Of course it's not that simple. There are a couple of lovely scenes where they don't adjust to rural Texas outside Morganville that well, and Oliver is along as their baby-sitter, plus a "simple side matter" that turns out to be the dominant part of the story.But it's all nicely handled and fun. Not a place to start the series, but a great read.

This one reminded me very much of the first few books- which is a really good thing. It was hilarious. This book follows Shane, Eve, Michael and Claire as they venture out of Morganville- the first time ever, for some of them. Of course, it doesn't go as planned, and they get themselves into all sorts of trouble before they're even halfway to their destination. It was really fun watching the characters interact with each other outside of their usual environment. The second half focused on a new bunch of vampires that have been made- with the old disease- and they have to cure them or kill them before it gets worse. The end was enjoyable but I found it rather hard to keep up with all the characters. Overall, a really funny and entertaining read.
