"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!"
If anyone knows me, they will know how much I am about to talk about this book! I mean AHHHHHHHHH! Holy crapola amazing! Riveting and never-ending explosions of plot that kept me at the edge of my seat. (And seriously, if you have not read this series, what are you waiting for GO!!!)
Every time I open a book from Morganville, I fall right back into the city. I see the coffee shop, the university as well as the Glass house. What I loved about this book is that the author, Ms. Caine presents the reader with some amazing point of views. Most of the time, we are given the point of view from Claire. Not that I don’t like her, she is my home-girl, but it is very interesting to see and feel what the other characters are thinking.
First off Eve. WOW! To be in her shoes was like stepping on a never-ending roller coaster ride and never ever wanting to get off. I loved hearing her thoughts, feeling her emotions of the trials that her and Michael are going through. I especially loved feeling the power she has in herself. The moment when she step up to Michael and told him…..ooooh boy! I was like,”You go Girl!”
Next Shane. Another one of my favorite characters who’s attitude never ceases to make me snort. I loved being in his mind and seeing his thoughts and feelings for Claire. Let me tell you ladies that his love for Claire is so pure and sweet, it makes your heart beat faster. The way that he saw them together in their future, in a future that is just hope, made me want to cry. I admired that he saw something beautiful despite all the crap and wars going on in Morganville.
Next, deaths. Yes there are some and no I won’t say who. But I will say that I am sad to see this character go. The character is a minor one, but one that still made a big impact on the the glass gang.
My final verdict, MIND BLOWN! Black Dawn features everything you want a a book. Growth in the characters, love when you least expect it and death hanging at every corner. Black Dawn surpasses the other books and sets the sights for an amazing change that is yet to happen. Never predictable and always enjoyable, Black Dawn sweeps the reader away!
I give it 5 BITES!
