Review: Last Breath

Title: Last Breath (
Series: The Morganville Vampires # 11
Genre: Young Adult- Paranormal
Author: Rachel Caine
Publisher: NAL
Release Date: November 1, 2012
Book: Bought

"With her boss preoccupied researching the Founder Houses in Morganville, student Claire Danvers is left to her own devices when she learns that three vampires have vanished without a trace. She soon discovers that the last person seen with one of the missing vampires is someone new to town-a mysterious individual named Magnus. After an uneasy encounter with Morganville's latest resident, Claire is certain Magnus isn't merely human. But is he a vampire-or something else entirely?"

This is another book I've decided to get off my tbr pile. One main reason is that i have been following this series for so long, I needed to read it.

This book completely took my by surprise. Once I started this series, I was so used to problems arising in Morganville and my fave team of Claire, Michael, Eve and Shane go to the rescue. Not in this book. Oh, don't get me wrong, they go to the rescue, but there are some major turn of events going on that literally had me gasping!

The plot line of the book starts off with a slow build, leading to a giant explosion. I loved it. For once, instead of danger being on just the vampires, it's become a danger to the humans too. I loved that Ms. Caine wrote such a explosive plot line that left me sad, angry then much to my surprise happy. The plot never wavered from it's intensity, instead continued to combust over and over again! I just kept freaking out with each turn of the page that I could not will myself to stop.

The love interest in the book wavers some. I enjoyed the tension of both couples facing hard times yet getting through it together with love and support. The reader can feel the emotions of love and the joy of friendship they have with each other.

Last Breath takes the carpet out from under you. The clear description of the narrative makes the reader feel as if they are in Morganville. The strength of the characters with a dynamic plot leaves the reader eager, racing to the end of the book. With an explosive ending, Last Breath stakes are rising high. 

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. Great review! I'm still working on this series, but now I know I really need to get closer to this one - it sounds fantastic. Thank you for sharing! :)

  2. I'm so far behind in this series! I blew through the first 5 books in no time and then I stalled and have yet to get to book 6. I just can't keep up with them all! Glad to see the series is maintaining its awesomeness though:)

  3. I have not read even book 1 of this series, but finally snagged a book that had the first 3 stories in it. :) I'm so happy that by #11 it still is going strong. I'm so glad about that. I won't get bored. YaY

  4. Yay, I'm glad you finally read it, Savannah! I really liked this one, too. I'm pretty amazed at what's going on with Shane and Claire. :D Can't wait for the next one!

  5. Yay Morganville. I'm still on book 5. I need to catch up. These books are like potato chips. Total junk, but loveable.

  6. Hrmp...still haven't read this series either but I will. I've heard great things about it. I love that this is a review for a book way late in the series but isn't spoilery at all for those like me that haven't read it. Great review Savannah
