Kiss of Death by Rachel Caine

Goodreads Summary: Vampire musician Michael Glass has attracted the attention of a big- time producer who wants to cut a demo and play some gigs-which means Michael will have to enter the human world. For this, he's been assigned escorts that include both a dangerous immortal as well as Michael's all-too-human friends. And with that mix of personalities, this is going to be a road trip from hell...

My Take: I am going to have a hard time writing a review for this book unless I want to have spoilers. After reading Fade Out I was wondering where Rachel Caine could go with this series. Now that I have read this book, I am a little confused about who Claire should trust. Rachel Caine’s writing style in this book was a little irritating with her repeating phrases and recapping throughout the whole book.

One thing that I actually did like about this book, was the change in setting and that Rachel Caine brought back the horror to the series. I felt that in the last book, there was very little reason to be concerned if Claire, Eve, Shane or Michael were in danger.

I feel that Claire is a little too much of a tough girl than I think she should be. What is with her being superhuman when it comes to self-defense against vampires AND she happens to be the one that can talk them out of bad situations?

Eve is still a little crybaby but she is not as irritating to me than she was in the last book.

All in all, I love Shane and Michael, but Shane...Can you please stop kissing Claire's fingers already!?!?!?
