New Morganville Vampire Book – Black DawnBy
This was a really solid follow-up to the previous vampire book in this series, Last Breath. If you have been following the story then you know that there has been a major story arc happening here with the draug showing up in Morganville. Since they are pretty much the only thing a vampire fears, and with good reason, having them show up in Morganville is definitely bad news.
Warning, there are some major changes in the story this time around, the biggest one being that one of the major characters dies. I won’t tell you who, that is for you to read and find out. But we know that these days you pretty much have to kill off one of your major characters to stay in the running, so if J.R. Rawlings can get away with it, you do it. But it does work in the story, and I have to say that it is a pretty spectacular and bloody death.
There is plenty of shifting of POV, and I feel that this makes it a better story because I love it when this is done well. Here we get a chance to see the POV of each couple and it really helps the story. And, best of all, Shane really shines in this vampire book. The story moves along pretty fast in Black Dawn, and with the current story arc getting resolved in this vampire book that leaves us ready for the next story.
So what is next for the vamps and all in Morganville? Will life get back to normal, if there is such a thing? We will all just have to watch for the next book!
