Dark , Gritty, Action, Packed Adventure
The hotly-anticipated twelfth instalment in the Morganville Vampires series
In Last Breath, the rain brought a new and dire threat to Morganville and its vampires… their ancient enemies, the draug. Now, the vampires are fighting a losing war, and it will fall to the residents of the Glass House: Michael, Eve, Shane and Claire, to take the fight to an enemy who threatens to destroy the town, forever.
Lovers of Morganville, rejoice: Black Dawn takes the intrigue, romance and nail-biting suspense of the series to its highest level yet!
“Morganville, Texas, isn’t like other towns. Oh, it’s small, dusty, and ordinary in most ways, but the thing is, there are these Vampires…They own the town. They run it. And until now they’ve been the unquestioned ruling class. “ That is until the Draug showed up.
There’s a reason why after reading Twelve books in this series I’m still obsessed with it! Rachel Caine has one of the most vivid imaginations out there in the fantasy writing world. Her imagination never ceases to amaze me, how her stories just more complex and amazing with each book.
Black Dawn picks up immediately where Last Breath leaves us with the Draug, planning to destroy the Vampire and take over Morganville. Even with the vampires ruling under a ruthless strict policy, it appears to be a blissful dream compared to what the Draug have in store for the citizens of Morganville, Texas. Unfortunately Vampire Amelie the Ruler of Morganville is powerless against the Draug with her injury she sustained in Last Breath, and with that the future of the town is left to he residents of the Glass House; Claire, Shane, Michael, and Eve, and of course with the help of my favorite Insane Vampire Myrnin. Claire continues to get more Bad-Ass with each book and her best friends are such outstanding supporting characters I’ve grown to love and without them The Morganville Vampire series wouldn’t be the same.
If you haven’t had the pleasure to read The Morganville Vampires then I suggest you do because Rachel Caine is a genius at world building and even though this book is not left on a cliffhanger, she still manages to set us readers up for another action packed, adventure with an even darker path than its predecessor.
“You go on, take care of your sister. I’ll be fine.”
He closed his eyes for a second. “No,” he said. “If you go, I go, too. I’m coming. Monica, just get inside and stay there.” “No way. I’m not letting you run off to get killed somewhere without me, jackass.”
“Shut up” Eve said flatly. “We have zero time for you and your bullshit dramatics.” “Or what, you’ll bleed on me, Emo Princess of Freakdomonia?”
Claire stepped forward and got Monica’s attention. She didn’t know how she looked, but Monica seemed to shift a little, as if she was considering taking a step back. “Fine. You come with us.” At the very least, Monica was a rabbit to throw to the wolves, and she wouldn’t hesitate to do it if it was the difference between life and death for Shane. “If you get in my way, I’ll kill you.”
My one and only gripe is that I want more Myrnin scenes lots of them, and unfortunately I’m greedy so there’s never enough. But I can say that Myrnin fans will love him in Black Dawn. Even with the death of a beloved character I would still say this is one of Rachel Caine’s best and I’ll be impatiently patiently waiting for Bitter Blood. If you’re a fan of dark, gritty, series with vampires, and a Kick-Ass heroine then I suggest you read The Morganville Vampires, it’s a favorite of mine and there’s a reason why it’s on the New York Times best selling list!! An easy 5 stars! It was unbelievably exciting I couldn’t put it down. Once again Rachel Caine continues to be an auto-buy author of mine.
