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...
Ghost Town is a really good book, and I give it 4 stars. I really enjoy the Morganville Vampire series – I can't believe this is already book #9. I really enjoy the 4 main characters – Claire, Shane, Eve, and Michael. Claire and Shane are one of the cutest couples ever. There are a lot of funny moments, but also some sad moments when members of the town (including Claire's friends) start forgetting the past 3 years of their lives. Since Claire has been in Morganville for less than 3 years, nobody knows who she is once they start losing their memory. I felt really bad for Claire when her boyfriend Shane forgets who she is as well, though it was nice to know that he was still attracted to her even though he has no memory of their time together. Poor Shane has to relive finding out about his mother's and sister's deaths. One of my favorite vampires in the book is Myrnin, who is very eccentric and somewhat crazy. With Myrnin in the mix, things are always interesting – but when he loses his mind, things get downright dangerous. Things are never boring in Morganville!
