74) Black Dawn by Rachel Caine

The Blurb :

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 Review :

I have been visiting Morganville since the beginning. Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have become like friends. I am invested in how their life continues and I care if they live or die. I hope, like they do, that the town of Morganville will be free of the vampire rule and that they will lead a normal life. However, despite the fact that I don't want the series to end, I want to finally have some closure.

Yes this is an amazing series and Black Dawn is yet another super story in the tale of Morganville. The way the author manages to keep this series fresh and unique amazes me and I love that each book always has something good come out of everything that goes wrong. But this time around I wasn't convinced. I wasn't sure that all of this was necessary. Loads of action and some lovely twists but it felt like things are just being drawn out. Putting off the inevitable end of what has been an exhausting but momentous saga. The Glass House team have been through so much and I am sure they are tired.

Book #13, Bitter Blood, is due out in November and of course I am going to be getting a copy. I definitely can't let go of this series even if I would like to see it finally come to an end. It is addictive and very special. There is nothing in the genre like the Morganville Vampire series and even though it is aimed at younger readers I can't think of anything too childish in the books that would put off any adult reader.

So long live the Morganville vampires but I am gearing myself up and hoping for an end soon. Absolutely amazing series that stays on my must read list.
