Publisher's Summary

Vampire Michael Glass just received the call he's been waiting for all his life. His music has attracted the attention of a heavily connected music producer who wants him to cut a demo and play some dates - which means that Michael will have to enter the human world. But he won't be alone. He's been assigned an undead escort, which includes immortal enforcer Oliver, as well as Michael's human friends: rebellious Eve, oft-misunderstood Claire, and courageous Shane.
And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell. But what waits for them proves more perilous than they thought. Caught between humans who hate them and a savage party of traveling vampires out to create a blood-soaked feast for themselves, Michael and his friends may not make it to the show on time...or ever.

Morely gets more than he bargained for.

Out of Morganville and into the real world Claire and her friend run into a small town where they don't fit in. I means a lot of trouble for the but that isn't the half of it. Morely and his group have escaped Morganville and are on the loose. It just keeps getting stranger. Bishop hasn't finished causing trouble for them and they must clean up the mess. Oliver is along for some comical relief. He is the chaperon. Black his lay in wait for the whole group. Michael still has to make it to the audition and Claire and Shane must decide if they will strike out on their own.
It is one of the best stories in the series. I do wonder though, will Claire join the vamps if Shane leaves and what is happening between Michael and Eve. Then the is the question about Morely.

Morganville Vamps Rock By Leaving Town

Where does Kiss of Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a pretty good book, but it isn't exceptional. The story is very unique even for the Morganville series, but even that can’t put this audiobook to the front of the pack. The audio performance just isn’t completely there. After originally reading the book myself, the audio performance of this book felt flat. (Which is a strange occurrence since I always read the book before purchasing the audiobook.)

Who was your favorite character and why?

Claire as always is my favorite character, however, Oliver needs some love after his role in this book. Evil as always Oliver crushes the hopes and dreams of our beloved heroes at the end of the book. Yet, we definitely see some character development and growth with Oliver leaving everyone (readers and heroes alike) wondering if Oliver isn't the stereotypical villain he presents himself as.

What about Cynthia Holloway’s performance did you like?

I really didn't like the performance. It just rubbed me the wrong way.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I loved the book. It took us out of Morganville but proved that while you can leave the crazy vampire town behind the crazy will still chase you down and try to kill you. The end of the book was the most emotional for me since we were able to see the characters enjoy life out of Morganville only to have to go back once again.
