Posted February 26, 2011 by Kathy Davie in Book Reviews, Young Adult

This book came from the library, and I will never give you less than an honest review, no matter its source. I do provide informational and purchase links to make it more convenient for you to access the book. I also receive a percentage of the sale if you use one of my links to buy it. And that's not enough money to be less than truthful *grin*.

Ninth in the Young-Adult paranormal series, Morganville Vampires, Ghost Town starts with a bang.

In 2010, Ghost Town was nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award for Young Adult Fantasy.

My Take

While I enjoyed the story, Ghost Town is more of a bump in the road. We do learn about Amelie and Oliver’s past but it’s the only real progress we see.

The Story

Claire has to work without stopping on the repairs for the machine that protects Morganville or face a hideous end. Well, she does have the option of tossing her friends out to save her life but, being Claire, she does get the machine repaired although everyone has reckoned without mad Myrnin who adds his own particular twists.

Twists which lash back when humans and vamps begin to lose their memories setting back the progress made between the two “camps”.
