SUMMARY:

A new chapter in the New York Times bestselling Morganville Vampires saga.

Vampire musician Michael Glass has attracted the attention of a big- time producer who wants to cut a demo and play some gigs-which means Michael will have to enter the human world. For this, he's been assigned escorts that include both a dangerous immortal as well as Michael's all-too-human friends. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell... 


MY THOUGHTS:

Kiss of Death is the 8th book in the Morganville Vampire series, and in my opinion, one of the best young adult vampire series there is.  I am a HUGE fan of this series and this author rarely disappoints me. 

In this installment, Michael gets recruited to make a demo in Dallas, Texas.  The gang is excited when they are actually granted passes to leave Morganville for a short time and help support Michael in his new career path.  The only downside is having Oliver as and escort. Along the way, they deal with AWOL vampires, diseased vampires, crazy locals and enough excitement to keep you reading non-stop!

While I was disappointed in not seeing and hearing from my favorite characters as much, we still get the action packed romance that this author delivers effortlessly!  I love how each chapter is a practically another drama packed adventure and how it gives the characters barely enough time to breath.  The romance between Shane and Claire was very sweet.  We finally get to see what Shane was going to give Claire in the previous books and it just squeezes your heart with emotions.  The romance between Eve and Michael is just as sweet, showing the devotion each character has to their relationships.  My favorite thing with this series though, is the witty humor and laugh out loud dialogue the author brings to each book.  You are always guaranteed bickering, humor and drama, but you are also guaranteed friendship, love and the feeling of family between them all.  Even Oliver showed a new side to himself in this book.  I might actually start to like him more now.

This is one series where I wish the author would write faster and give me my Morganville addiction fix quicker!  The vampire world in these books are like my own brand of drug that should be illegal to bookworms!

MY RATING:


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading! 5 STARS
