Blurb: Claire Danvers has a few things on her mind. First of all there is the laundry, which is now an unfortunate shade of pink. Then there is her boyfriend, Shane, who is never too far from her thoughts. Finally there is her best friend Eve’s relationship problems. As if life as a student wasn’t complicated enough, Claire just happens to be studying in Morganville. A town run by vampires. Trouble seems to follow Claire and her friends like a shadow and tonight is no exception to the rule. They must find the most difficult documents for a vampire to acquire; people passes that will allow ‘bad ass’ Morley and his friends to leave Morganville. But it’s proving incredibly difficult, and with the odds seemingly stacked against them, the biggest question of all is…Will they survive?

Review: Drama.Drama.Drama! Woooooow!
So, in Kiss of Death we see that Michael and his friends get to have a week out of Morganville for Michael to record his songs for a record deal.
As we know, these guys don't have much luck when it comes to drama, but so far they have managed to cope through, and yet again, I have no idea how they done so in Kiss of Death because, man, I would be the first to die if I was in a book like that! Overall it was really good, and in the Epilogue I thought Shane was going to say 'no' and I was panicking like crazy which managed to keep me awake, because it wasn't until 2:20am that I finished it!
Morley. Hmmm, glad that what he's decided
(view spoiler)[to stay in Blacke (hide spoiler)] because it keeps him out of the way and one less enemy. Although, was he really an enemy? Actually, thinking about it, he wasn't. He was just acting like the enenmy to get what he wanted.
I really enjoyed reading Kiss of Death because it was outside of Morganville which adds to the excitement and makes it more memorable because so far all of the Morganville books in the series merge together as I've been reading them back to back and so I'm not sure if some of the plot happened at the end of a book, or the beginning. But I know what happens during each book, it's just some of the little parts of information is difficult to see which book it belongs to. (Sorry that has made absolutely no sense!)
Anyway, I was happy with the ending of Kiss of Death due to Shane's decision. And, ooooh, I can't believe that Amelie had Claires parents and Eve's mum held hostage to make sure that they arrive back in Morganville! Anyway, I'm starting to babble on, 5 stars for all the drama and excitement! :)

Rating: 5 stars!!
