Get ready for “non-stop vampire action” (Darque Reviews) in the latest Morganville Vampire novel from New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine.
 While developing a new system to maintain Morganville’s defenses, student Claire Danvers discovers a way to amplify vampire mental powers. Through this, she’s able to re-establish the field around this vampire-infested Texas college town that protects it from outsiders.
 But the new upgrades have 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…
This book contains:  Romance,  violence,  a little gore and humor.
I am going to do this review a little different then the others  so let me know if this is something you guys like.
This is the ninth book in the Morganville Vampire series and I have to say this series just seems to get better and better.  You would think that after all these books about a town ran by vampires that  Rachel Caine would have run out of plot lines.  Well, that doesn’t seem likely to  happen any time in the near future.  If any thing her  storylines just seem to be fresher and even more exciting than the first.  Every book brings a new dimension to this  town and it inhabitants.  I find myself  sucked in more and more by every book. 
Claire is still living with Shane her boyfriend, Eve her bedazzled stake wielding best friend and Micheal who is Eve’s vampire boyfriend.  Amelie is still the head of the town with Oliver as her second until a strange twist turns things upside down.  Then you have the very funny charismatic Mrynin who tends to find himself along with Claire and the gang in the center of the trouble.  In this book the characters are really starting to figure out their strengths and what sets them apart from the rest of the town.
In the beginning of the book you have Claire and Myrnin working on a new computer system since the old one went crazy and had to be destroyed.  Claire is forced to finish the computer system at all cost.  After the system is up and running people start acting extremely strange and Claire soon thinks that the system is failing but when she tries to fix it  Mrynin seems to have forgotten who she is.  So she has to figure out how to get to the system and fix it without Myrnin snacking on her. 
This is just one fantastic ride from the very first chapter.   The pacing in this book  never drags and you never feel that any of the chapter are just fillers .   Rachel as alway does a tremendous job of knowing what her readers like and  she delivers with an outstanding story  every time.  This is a must read for anyone who is a fan of the series.
