Book Description

When a tide of ferocious draug, the vampire’s deadliest enemy, floods Morganville, its eclectic mix of residents must fight to save their town from devastation

Chaos has taken over the quiet college town of Morganville as the threat of the draug rapidly spreads with the help of the city’s water system. Whilst most of the locals have already fled, student Claire Danvers and her friends Shane, Eve and Michael choose to stay and fight. Things take a turn for the worse when vampire Amelie, the town’s founder, is infected by the master draug’s bite. Unless Claire and her friends can find an antidote to save Amelie and overcome the draug, Morganville’s future looks bleak . . .

More About the Author

Rachel Caine is the author of more than fifteen novels, including the Morganville Vampires and Weather Warden series. She was born at White Sands Missile Range, which people who know her say explains a lot. She has been an accountant, a professional musician, and an insurance investigator, and still carries on a secret identity in the corporate world. She and her husband, fantasy artist R. Cat Conrad, live in Texas with their iguanas, Pop-eye and Darwin, a mali uromastyx named (appropriately) O'Malley, and a leopard tortoise named Shelly (for the poet, of course).

4.0 out of 5 stars Another amazing addition to Morganville 7 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So anyone who has read any of my previous Morganville reviews will know I love this series and Rachel Caine. I love anything that woman writes and refuse to believe there is anything bad to say about her books. You might think this would make writing the review easier but it's a lot harder since I feel like I just gush over her and her works.

For any who don't know, Morganville is a town in Texas that is run by vampires. Everyone, except for the Uni students, know about the vampires and live by certain rules etc. to keep themselves alive. Claire Danvers is one of those students but she finds out about the hidden background of Morganville and eventually starts working for the founder, Amelie. Throughout the books Claire deals with a lot: bullying, moving into a house with strangers, finding out vampires exist, learning how to live in Morganville, falling in love, almost dying, actually dying, saving the town, saving herself and her friends as well as other little trivial things. Black Dawn is the most recent in the series and we find out more about the even-more-baddy-than-vampire draug that were introduced in Last Breath.

So, like I said above, there are no bad things to say about Black Dawn. All Morganville fans will want to read this, it brings up some interesting ideas for future books and any non Morganville fans, I highly recommend you start the series with Glass Houses and work through it from there. For UKers there's a gorgeous Morganville Omnibus available that includes the first 3 books: Glass Houses, The Dead Girl's Dance and Midnight Alley.

4.0 out of 5 stars Caine captivates again and again 15 July 2012
By Cassandra220689 VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As with the last book, we continue on in the fashion of alternate narratives which let us delve further into the lives of our favourite Morganites.

Previously we have learned that there is an enemy that even the Vampires fear and that the fight is just beginning. The Draug are getting stronger with Magnus feeding them more Vampires and humans, allowing them to gain more strength and power is not a thought worth thinking about and it becomes clear that there is a lot more than just Morganville at stake if the Draug win.

With this in mind, the battle commenses and we see Micheal, Eve, Claire, Shane, Myrin, Amelie and Oliver fight for their life and Morganville in a series of attacks on the Draug. Some of which are successful and other which aren't so much, and some where we are left reeling at the possibility of loosing one of our most favourite characters...

And as usual in true Morganiville style, which this is all going on we have 'normal' problems to contend with like Micheal and Eve and will they ever get married, and even Monica's troubles when she too, feels the brunt of the fight in a sad way which see's us finally break into the minds of Hannah and her brother and the depths of their feelings they once had...

With battle and war comes death and Morganville is not immune, this is the biggest fight left and there are more than just the casualty of death, which we see played out in some engrossing breaks from reality with Shane, stylistically written like always by Caine, we see his biggest fears come to light and the most empathy and sympathy we have ever felt for him not to mention love.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great, except.. 9 Sept. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I kinda liked the plot, but Rachel Caine has in her later Morganville books for no good reason started using first-person narratives for many major characters. And in Black Dawn she seems to think that she has to tell the story for EVERY character from the first-person perspective. Claire she still uses a 3rd-person narrative for (thankfully, even if it's inconsistent). I don't need to know what Amelie and Oliver are thinking. It takes away from their mysticism, and frankly Rachel Caine doesn't seem to be able to make them interesting at all from their first-person perspective. What was cool about Amelie and Oliver was that they were a bit mystic. Now, hearing their thoughts, they seem just.. ordinary. It ruins things for me. So I probably won't buy the next Morganville book. Too bad, this series had great potential. I'm sad to see it being ruined by the author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another stunning and exciting read. 5 May 2012
By Shell
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Another stunning and exciting read in the morganville adventures. Had me enthrawled from start to finish and could not put it down. 5 hours later when finished was gutted that it had ended. Ready for the next one hurry up cant wait for the next installment. A must read for all fans as this book will not disappoint and even though it is the 12th installment does not loose any of it's carisma or excitement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Follow Up... 8 Jun. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
if your a fan of the previous Morganville books, BUY THIS BOOK. It's the perfect follow up to the previous books. Caine writes in a way that makes you fall in love with the characters (specifically Shane, in my case.....). But honestly, if you've read the previous books, buy this one, and if you haven't read any of the series yet, you're missing out, buy 'The Glass House' and get reading. The books are good for a more adult-than-twilight style read, but not quite the adult style story of a series such as True Blood. Highly Reccomended. Glass Houses (Morganville Vampires)
