Book Description

1 May 2012 Morganville Vampires (Book 12)
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...For news about Rachel's up-coming 2012 UK tour, giveaways and to share your love for Morganville, sign up to the UK Fans of the Morganville Vampires group on Facebook.

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 Ms. C. A. Anderson 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.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been great, except.. 9 Sep 2012
By OHS
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 Black Dawn 18 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Black Dawn starts off straight after Last Breath, with Magnus and his Draug causing chaos in Morganville. Most people have fled except Claire and the gang who have to find an antidote to save Amelie or the Draug could destroy Morganville forever. This book has so much suspense and action that you cannot catch your breath but also had all the other things that make Morganville so brilliant. I cannot believe that this is book 12, it feels like book 4 with how amazing and imaginative the story and characters are, I cannot wait to read Bitter Blood!
