drey's thoughts:
You know how it gets when you're really into a series, and the number of books in that series starts inching closer to the double-digits, and you get that itty-bitty niggle of worry that this book will not be as good as you're expecting?

Boy, was that a run-on or what? Anyway. I practically inhaled Kiss of Death. Seriously. Yeah, yeah, I know I normally read fast. And this one wasn't a big book to start with. But still. Inhaled.

The gang--Michael, Eve, Shane, and Claire--goes on a road-trip to Dallas. Yes, they get to leave Morganville. With permission, of course. And an expected return. And an escort. Who turns out to have ulterior motives for going along.

This being the gang, you know the trip's not going to go all hunky-dory-like. And it doesn't take long for the first bump in the road--when they have to detour to a small town, almost get into a fight with the locals, lose Eve's car, buy a hearse, and get thrown onto the vamp bus. Which is also from Morganville, by the way. You're thinking, "huh?"

Apparently when Bishop was on his hunt for Amelie, he left souvenirs. Souvenirs that are savage and violent, and intent on this being the last road trip the gang goes on. Ever. And now they either have to be saved, or killed. Who do you think gets to take care of this cleanup?

I'm kinda bummed that Myrnin doesn't feature more in this book. But I won't complain (too much). Because I'm waiting for #9. And keeping my fingers crossed that I inhale that one, too.
