Publisher's Summary

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 reestablish 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.

Critic Reviews

"Claire's tough-girl attitude may remind adult readers of Rachel Morgan and her world of human-vampire interactions." ( Booklist)

Good Series

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a great series but I wish the author would remember what has happened in her previous books. She has changed names of some people and changed when someone in the book was shot but she says the person was stabbed. It gets annoying after awhile. Over all a good series.

Great book! -Love this series!

I was pleasantly surprised after reading each of the 9 books in this series, that I couldn't wait for the next book! Except for rare cases like this series, I get bored by the 4th or 5th book in most series since it seems to get more and more difficult to top the last one(or in some cases, the first one). This entire series kept me coming back for more with a great balance of character, suspense, intrigue, comic relief, and just enough romance. I'm impressed! I hope she keeps them coming! I can't wait for the next one!

Excellent book

The Narrator Cynthia Holloway is excellent. The story line continues with Clair and her friends. You will not be able to put the book down.

Morganville's lastest chapter does not disappoint!

If you could sum up Ghost Town in three words, what would they be?

Don't Forget Me

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed the fact that in this book Claire is treated like the other residents of Morganville. In Rachel Cain's opening she states that the residents of the Glass House are seen/treated differently than the other residents in Morganville. They do not live under the protection of a vampire - Michael doesn't count - yet they do not usually have the same ramifications than other residents of Morganville would face in a similar situation. I believe that this is because Amelie recognizes what an asset Claire's mind is to their town.

However, in this book we see Claire kill a vampire, which is a capital offense regardless of the situation surrounding the kill. She is sentenced to work until she completes the "project" or dies trying, with absolutely no rest. Claire, being Claire is able to complete the project but it takes some time to realize that there is something wrong with what she created.

Seeing Claire's flaws made her more real as a character, since she doesn't really make any huge mistakes like she did in this book.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Michael didn't remember the last few years and wondered who Claire was and what she was doing in his parent's house.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The past is right around the corner.

Any additional comments?

Cynthia Halloway does not disappoint. As usual she does a wonderful job with the performance of this story.
