Review: Last Breath (The Morganville Vampires, #11) by Rachel Caine

Published: 11-1-2011
Format: Hardcover, 335 pages
Genre: Paranormal YA Fiction
Series: The Morganville Vampires
My rating: 5/5 stars

Synopsis from goodreads:

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 book was perhaps one of my favorite books in this series. This is book eleven in The Morganville Vampire series, and it seemed to me that there was a much bigger creep-factor to the story than I ever remember there being in any of the other books--which is great, because I love being creeped out! This book also made me more emotional than any of the previous ones. I laughed, fretted, gasped, and even cried a little (which is something I pretty much NEVER do). Yes people, it was THAT awesome! If you haven't started this series yet, I highly recommend it! You would think that because this series is already eleven books in, that Rachel Caine would be running out of things to make happen in the town of Morganville. But no, the plot twists and story lines are as original as ever, and the characters are just as fantastic.

This book is mostly from the point of view of Claire, one of my favorite protagonists of all time. But we also get the perspectives of Amelie, Shane, Michael and Eve. At first I wasn't sure if it was completely necessary to have so many P.O.V.'s, but now I feel like it was important to be able to witness things through the eyes of these other characters so you can be more in tune with the story.

There are so many characters in this book that I love, and ones that I also love to hate! Claire was great, and she's just as smart and tough as ever. Her and Shane still have me rooting for them, after all this time. Speaking of Shane, we get to see a side of him that we've never seen before, and he just about broke my heart! Eve and Michael are fantastic as well. They are definitely the kinds of friends that I would want in my corner. Myrnin.......oh Myrnin, how I love thee. I don't want to give anything away, but in this book he shows us just how much he cares for Claire. Under all that crazy, he's a big softy, and I love it. Amelie and Oliver of course are the characters that I love to hate. They will continue to make you feel conflicted as to how you feel about them. One minute they're acting like emotionless and lethal creatures, and the next minute they do something that reveals their humanity.

I really can't say too much about the things that creeped and skeeved me out in this book without revealing everything, but I will say that Magnus (as described in the synopsis) is eighteen different kinds of freaky. With him comes an introduction to a whole new species of monster. The situations that Claire and her friends find themselves in while this character was involved are unforgettable and we have definitely not seen the last of this guy. The end of the book leans a little on the cliffhanger side and I'm certain that the next book will definitely be one heck of a ride--I can't wait!
