Summary

There’s a smokin’ hot dead guy locked in my garden shed.

That part’s bad enough. But now, he’s trying to get out.

Growing up, my father always told me that I’d come to a bad end, just like my mom did when I was a kid. Hearing that kind of shit when you’re little eventually gets to a girl, but I can’t say I ever expected my "bad end" to involve an angry vampire with a severe case of iron deficiency and a panty-melting English accent.

Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised. Ever since my mother was assassinated, I’ve felt like there was something vast and frightening hidden beneath the fabric of the world. Something none of us are supposed to know about.

So far, finding out I was right hasn’t been nearly as satisfying as I’d hoped. I guess the trick will be staying alive long enough to shout ‘I told you so’ from the rooftops.

But before I can do that, I really need to figure out if the vampire who just bit me is one of the good guys or not.

The Last Vampire is a steamy new urban fantasy romance series from USA Today Bestseller R. A. Steffan and Jaelynn Woolf, co-authors of the Circle of Blood saga. 

Grab the omnibus of Books 1-3 today, and enter a world shared by humans, fae, demons, and one very reluctant vampire. It’s a place where the supernatural threatens the mundane, nothing is as it seems, and love will either be the world’s downfall - or its salvation.

amazing book

We certainly aren’t supposed to have multiple supernatural beings competing for the title of “scariest nemesis.” Yet, that’s where I find myself, now that the last vampire on Earth is no longer the last vampire on Earth.
amazing book from start to finish

The boos is good, the story is okay but....

The book is good, the story is okay but the audio voice is terrible. I really tried to listen to this but I couldn't. The performance is too slow and too many whimpering emotions. Seriously, I felt as if the person reading this was suffering from depression and was crying whilst reading. Very annoying.

Absolutely brilliant

Book 1
I really enjoyed this book. There’s a lot of foundation laying in this first book which is needed to put everything in place. The humour is great. I was laughing so much! Gwendolyn is amazing, perfect performance.

Book 2
This series is really heating up. The characters are brilliant, Gwendolyn is absolutely fantastic, I could listen to her all day and night. Great storyline.

Book 3
Oh this series just keeps on getting better and better! I love the dynamic of these characters. Excellent writing and a fantastic performance from Gwendolyn. Book 4 here I come!!!!

Slow, boring, and lots of whining

I’m 12 chapters in and I’m sick of this book. It’s very slow moving: 12 chapters in and the plot is only just starting to do anything. Also, the character is whining about her life, not all of it plausible. I’m guessing all these health problems she seems to have (chronic fatigue, food sensitivities, and such) will be explained as symptoms of her some how being not quite human (my guess, not a spoiler), but the complaining is so constant that it gets old. There’s painting a picture, and then there is repetitive filler.

She’s also constantly complaining about her sex life, but it’s really not that abnormal of one from how it’s described (making her complaints not all that plausible). She claims to feel like she’s a nymphomaniac, but her actions and sexual interests are actually pretty boring and mundane. Again, I’m guessing the author will have some point to it, but it’s not believable as it’s written.

Basically, it’s been 12 chapters of her complaining about these things with almost no plot development at all. It’s gotten to be painfully boring to listen to. The only reason I made it this far in the book was because I was listening while driving and it wasn’t safe to mess with my phone to search for something else to listen to.

Nothing wrong with performance; just average.

Not your cookie cutter paranormal romance

I try not to spoil but sometimes I get carried away in my reviews so beware that there may be possible spoilers.

I binged read/listened to books 1-3 of this story because I could not put it down or stop listening to it.

Book 1 was great and was a good start to the series. The narrator is good and I have listened to her before and in other RA Steffan books I believe. I always enjoy her performances. I am just not sure she should have read this particular heroine's part. I just didn't feel like her voice fit but I actually do love this narrator and once I got into the story it didn't matter.

Book 2 had me feeling anxious for all the things the main character was going through and was just as great as the first one.

By book 3 I was getting a little annoyed at the main female character's lack of confidence when it came to the main male character but the story keeps you drawn in it is so good.

The whole series has been very well written, so far. The characters are well developed, although I wish that the main female character wasn't written as obtuse as she was. So many things were in her face and I could have done without the run of the mill, "I didn't know I could do this" or "I didn't know I wasn't human' type thing. I won't spoil but this was my only bone of contention in this series. Having said all that, it was a different take on what people believe in the pnr world and that is refreshing. I really can't wait to read book four.

I was given this book/credit for free for my unbiased review.

A vampire and a starving succubus meet in St Louis

This is a rollicking tale of Ransley, the last vampire, and Zorah, a young woman who thinks she has an auto-immune disease only to discover she's a succubus. It's a big deal for Zorah to learn the world and her part in it is not what she thought it was.

All in one omnibus edition you get great chase scene; danger and intrigue with demons, fae, and the last vampire (clever title, that); travels across realms; and the inventive sex scenes readers/listeners have come to expect from Steffan and Woolf. Druyor as the voice of the series is in fine form. Her Rans is particularly fun.

Get this. In one affordable volume, you won't miss a lick. It mixes up lore in a new and fun way without letting the pace get flabby. The heroine of the story realizes her own worth and grows from a weakling in book 1 to a force to be reckoned with by the end of book 3.

Storyline: great. Editing and narration: poor.

The story premise and plot are terrific but this audiobook suffers drastically from poor editing and an extremely shrill narrator.
The main characters are interesting and the plot line is great - but - this 20+ hours audiobook could have been edited down to more like 10-12 hours. Many of the descriptions are too lengthy without adding substance. The female protagonist is whiny and repetitive in her inner monologues. The action scenes move pretty fast, but mostly it these books just need editing everywhere.
The narrator uses a strident, nasal voice for the female lead character which *almost* had me quitting before I finished. (Again, it’s a good story.) Her inflection and intonation too often hit the same over eager note. The narrator does a pretty good job on male voices, but they may just seem better by comparison.
The books are cliffhangers, even this set, so keep it in mind.

Suggest Reading, Not the Audio

Storyline is strong if you can get passed the horrible narration, she sounds like a little girl, over all i suggest Reading in print.

I really wish the narrator had a sexier voice.

I liked the story for as far as I went but narrator's voice was too nerdy

redhat queen

What a fantastic series. This series had kept me so interested and exciting I had to listen to it all day. I can’t wait to listen to book the rest of the books. Gwendolyn is a fantastic narrator.

Good Book, Bad Narration!!

The story was ok. But I didn't care for the narrator at all....I believe the narration would have been done much better by Tavia Gilbert. Couldn't move onto book 2 with the same narrator sorry to say but the book is worth the read otherwise.
