Black Dawn (Morganville Vampires # 12) by Rachel Caine

Black Dawn (Morganville Vampires # 12)

by Rachel Caine      

Ever since the draug—mysterious creatures that prey on vampires—took over Morganville, the lives of student Claire Danvers and her friends have been thrown into turmoil. Most of the town’s residents have evacuated, but Claire, Shane, Eve and Michael have chosen to stay and fight.
Using the city’s water system to spread, the draug have rapidly multiplied. Things in Morganville look grim, especially since vampire Amelie—the town founder—has been infected by the master draug’s bite.
Now, if Claire and her friends don’t figure out how to cure Amelie and defeat the draug, it looks like Morganville will become little more than a ghost town…


This whole series is awesome! I have followed Claire from her very first steps into Morganville and I have loved the whole ride. You figure when getting to the 12th book in any series that the author is just trying to hold on to their characters and it is usually pretty sad to see a great story get washed out and tired, but that just isn't the case with these books! You can tell that Rachel still has passion for Morganville and she still writes every book in the series with the same enthusiasm as the last.
In this book and the last one the Vampires of Morganville are the ones being hunted and the tables are turned and the play of power is changed. I'm not used to seeing the predators as prey and it's really been a nice change. Amelie is one of my favorite characters in these books, she is the founder of Morganville and rules with a dainty iron fist. She has been bitten by a Draug and is slowly turning into one of them. And of course it's up to Claire and her loyal friends to save the town once again. I love all of the characters in these books each one brings something to the story and without each one the story wouldn't be the same.
I like the fact that you get to see little parts of the story through each characters eyes and see what they are feeling and thinking as well as the main character Claire. I liked this one just as much as the last eleven books in the series and I got caught up wondering if Rachel was actually going to take out Amelie (you'll have to read it to find out), and whether or not Eve and Michael can get through a very ruff spot in their relationship. Myrnin gets up to his scheming in his vampire bunny slippers and always has you guessing about both his feeling for Claire and his secret motives.
All in all this is one awesome series that hooks you from the beginning and always has me waiting with baited breath for the next, and this book didn't disappoint even being the twelfth in the series. If you haven't started the series you should! And if you have you need to get this one quick.
