Synopsis: 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?

Review: This series just gets better and better and Last Breath is easily the best so far and easily the mostly aptly titled. As far as breaths go, I think I was holding mine for the majority of the book. 

Right from the word go, the action starts and I was right back in Morganville and along for the ride. I didnt leave until the last page. Ms Caine has differed in the writing format of this, number eleven in the series, in that we get to read from the point of view of a number of the main characters other than just Claire and this works brilliantly with the plot line giving the reader a better understanding of what is going on but still leaving enough suspense for the reader to continue on to see what happens next. 

If you haven't gotten into this series already, I very much recommend it. It's made me laugh, it's made me cry and now I am off to read book twelve, Black Dawn. 

A very definite five star rating!
