Top Vampire Novels: Last Breath
Book Review: Last Breath (Morganville Vampires)
by Rachel Caine
In Last Breath we get a chance to return to Morganville and once again follow with Claire, Amelie, Michael, Eve and of course Myrnin. Even if you have never read this series, I think you will find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat, nails bitten down to the quick as this is one of the most gripping and emotional stories in this series. The twists and turns of the plot and where you follow it will keep you up at night unable to put this book down.
Things are kinda strange in Morganville, but then even with the uneasy truce between humans and vampires in the small Texan town, they have always been that way. But when Claire realizes she has seen something, or someone, in the town that no one else seems to see, she begins to wonder just what kind of creature he could be. There is also the problem of an upcoming wedding in town that no-one, not the vampires nor the humans, want to see happen. And then vampires begin to go missing, and no one knows why.
Things begin to shake up the community when Amelie decides that perhaps it is time to close the town down. Mysteries pile on top of mysteries and yet in the midst of this, many questions that have floated around about who the citizens of Morganville are and why they are here begin to be answered. This book is the eleventh in the series and by far the one that gets into the heads of all the characters the most.
Even the mysterious Amelie, founder of Morganville is revealed. The personal stories are opened up more and as we watch Claire unravel the mystery of the town and perhaps open up a Pandora’s box that should have remained closed, we too get to share in the peek at the mystery behind the door that is Morganville.
If you have never read any of the Morganville Vampires series Last Breath may come as a bit of a shock for the first time visitor. But for those of us who have followed this series from the first book, this is one we have been waiting for. And it proves to be well worth the wait.
