Ghost Town

Ghost Town by Rachel Caine
Morganville Vampires #9

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... 

Now that Claire and the gang are back in Morganville, life is back to normal. Well, that is as normal as Morganville can be. Claire gets herself in trouble with Amelie when she accidentally kills a vampire while protecting Eve. Her punishment is to go directly to Myrnin and not rest until the machine that protects Morganville is fixed. It nearly costs her her life, but she gets the job done. Or did she? When everyone in the town starts to think it's three years ago she realizes something is majorly wrong. What do you do when you are the only one who remembers the truth and has the ability to stop the machine? Despite the insurmountable odds of getting past a Myrnin that doesn't remember her, Claire sets out to do just that, even if it means risking her life, because Morganville stands to lose everything.

It is amazing how this series has not lost momentum even after nine book. I'd even go so far to say that it is picking up speed. After the reign of terror that was the Bishop, you would think things would be easier without an evil person at the center. However, I found this latest challenge to be even worse than anything the Bishop could have done. The only thing he could do was try and take away their futures, but the malfunctioning machine took away their past, everything that has made them who they are. It appears to be only taking away the past three years, but since so much has happened in that short amount of time, it's really like sending them back to the stone ages.

I still find Claire's strength to be amazing. It is tested so thoroughly in this book over and over, but she never once wavers, despite the awful things she has to deal with. Not only is there danger, but plenty of heartache as well. I can honestly say that if survival had to be left up to one person, I would have no hesitation in choosing Claire. She has survived and and come out on top of more situations than should be humanly possible. She is definitely someone you want to have in your corner, and her friends are truly luck to have her.

This is one of those series that just keeps getting better, and this book is no exception. I absolutely loved it. I honestly could not put it down, even into the wee hours of the morning. It was full of danger, suspense, and plenty of emotion. The destroyal and consequent rebuild of relationships in the book was both heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. It was horrible to see all of them go through it, but they came out the other side that much stronger. After the cliffhanger ending of this book, the next book, Bite Club promises to be yet another great installment in the series, and I cannot wait for it's release.
