Review of Urban Fantasy Moganvile Vampire novel, Last Breath by Rachel Caine

Title: Last Breath
Series: The Morganville Vampires, book 11
Author: Rachel Caine

Official Synopsis
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? 

My Review
Last Breath is even better than the first installment of the series! After eleven books, Rachel Caine is still on fire, keeping the action coming, the twists and turns rolling and the hints of romance growing. This book, more than the others in the series, truly left me reeling with tons of surprises and incredible action and emotional turmoil that had me laughing, crying, cheering and angry as I devoured the pages.

Claire and the gang are back and as usual, they find themselves in the middle of a war that leaves vampires running, humans hiding, and Morganville at the brink of collapse. Michael and Eve's wedding are causing disarray with humans and vampires alike, but that gets pushed aside when Morganville gets an unwanted visitor. With vampires disappearing, and Claire seeing an ominous figure lurking in the shadows, she starts doing what she does best - investigating and trying to protect the people she loves, vampires and humans alike. Problem is, this figure, Magnus, is unlike any other being she has ever met - a creature that leaves even the vampires quaking with fear. As she tries to help her friends. As everything collapses around her, will Claire be able to save the town and the people she has grown to love before it's too late, or will she lose it all?

This book is the eleventh book in the series, yet it still managed to surprise me - that is incredible. A major character (or should I say characters?) is killed off, people are left in grief, the town in chaos and the vampires on the run. In other words, the proverbial crap has hit the fan and it will leave you reeling. The subtle yet powerful ending will leave counting down the days for the next book! I can't wait to see what happens next!

Rachel Caine - you are a genius!
