Waiting on Wednesday (7)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

The Morganville Vampires series is one I care a great deal about. I loved the ninth book Ghost Town, but then the tenth book Bite Club was a huge step down in quality. I'm not sure I've mentioned this before, but my policy with series is that I quit if there are two bad books in a row. Bite Club counts as one and if Last Breath is bad too, I'm done. The only exception is if Black Dawn is the true final book, in which case I will read it. If there's only one or two books left, I may as well keep reading. It's the same reason I'm still reading Melissa de la Cruz's Blue Bloods series (besides the goddess that is Mimi Force from The Van Alen Legacy on): there are only two books left, so why not? (Also, love the contrast and bright colors of Last Breath's cover.)

The brand-new novel in the “intriguing world” (Darque Reviews) of Rachel Caine's New York Times bestselling Morganville Vampire series!

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?


I love hearing what others have to say about books and it makes me feel less like I'm talking to an empty auditorium, so comment away. Thank you for reading my blog post!
