The No1 UK Children’s Bestseller!
Book 9 in the New York Times and UK Bestselling Morganville Vampire Series
Disrespecting vampires is never a good idea and killing one of them is unthinkable. So when Claire kills one, while protecting her friend Eve, she is sentenced to help her crazy boss Myrnin repair the machine they have been building to protect Morganville vampires. If she fails to find a solution it could lead to her death.
Whislt working on the machine she discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers, but this apparent success has 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…
What The Critics Said
'Funny and sexy, it’s yet another take on teen vampire fiction – but not too bad at all. We love the feisty female characters!'
Heat (South Africa)
'Oh my god, there are no words to describe the awesomeness that is Rachel Caine and her Morganville Vampires series. I've said it before, and I'll say it again; Rachel Caine is, quite simply, a genius. Fact. Every single time I read one of these books, I am blown away by this woman's imagination and how far it stretches...If my review isn't enough to make you want to pick this book up, the fact that Ghost Town made the Number One Children's Bestseller List in the UK should!'
'My favourite book in the series so far...full of heart-stopping action and it grabbed my attention from the very first page and kept hold of it until the last. There are a lot of the elements that I love from previous books in the series, such as Myrnin being his usual crazy self, the political unrest amongst the vampires and between vampires and humans, trying to guess exactly what side Oliver is on, and of course, the dire trouble that seems to visit Morganville at every opportunity. There are some especially heart-breaking scenes between Claire and Shane later in the book that were just brilliantly written.
And once again, there is a brilliant ending, that will have everybody holding their breath until the next book in the series is released...'
