Last Breath by Rachel Caine
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 instalment of the series took an unexpected turn, but it was a turn that set my teeth on edge and had me reading non-stop. It was like a trap and the only way to escape was by finishing the book which I must say was not only great but was done in one day.
I think the only thing I found fault with in Last Breath was both Claire and Shane. Claire is simultaneously becoming smarter and childish, she needs to learn that if you can’t stand up for your friends (physically) then stop blaming yourself when they get hurt and because of that and other moments of bad judgement Claire was a big disappointment in this book.
Shane, sometimes I have to wonder about him, sometimes he treats Claire like his fiancé and then other times he treats her like a child and I for one think that he needs to step back and let her do things on her own. Why does he always want to run off and be the hero but Claire should stay at home? I almost wanted to say, “Shane, grow up, you don't live in the 50's any more; women don't stay home and just have kids and cook.”
However, despite Claire and Shane’s irritating moments I quite enjoyed Last Breath and for the story line alone I would give this book 5 out of 5.
Thank-you Rachael Caine your books are a great read and I can’t wait for the next one.
