Tell Me About It
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.

My Thoughts
Morganville Vampires is one of the few series that I can say I consistently read, and the last few books have been getting better and better.  I love the world Rachel has created and how each characters has their own distinct personality.

Black Dawn has to be my favourite of the series so far.  I was constantly guessing what would happen next and sat at the edge of my seat while reading.  I really like how each character is coming into their own even more, which we get to see more of with alternating chapters from a few of our favourite characters: Claire, Eve, Shane, Michael, Oliver and Naomi to name a few.  I especially love how Claire has finally grown a back bone, and although she does stand up for what she believes is right in previous books, Black Dawn shows us Claire who is willing to fight Vampires in order to keep her friends safe, and openly admits a threat of violence to Mrynin and stands up to Monica in a great way.

Eve is even more of a bad ass and I think she has to be my favourite female character in this series.  She has always openly admitted her feeling about the vampires but now we get to see her in a different light, and after previous events in Last Breath, she is dealing with issues in the only way she knows, hunting down vamps to kill them.

I will admit that Shane was put into my bad books in Last Breath, but in Black Dawn he shows his true colours whether he wants to or not, and after everything he goes through in this book I have now moved him to the top of the list of people I like.  He more than makes up for his previous mistakes which I wont go into detail about for those who have yet to read this books,  I do have to say he has the best one liners.
Shane to Michael
'Bro,' he said in an injured tone, 'I had to go out with a flamethrower, and you weren't there to see it.'
'Pics or it didn't happen.'
'Dude, little busy for pics. You know, throwing flame.'

We get to see a few familiar faces in Black Dawn, both Miranda and Jason make an appearance and each one plays their part for the best, again you will have to read to find out what I am going on about.  The ending has me wanting the next book now and I am impatiently but eagerly awaiting the next instalment later this year.
