    The gold and the silver unite...***3.5 Stars***The Last True Vampire has a great storyline with characters that leapt off the pages. We have the last vampire in existence Mikhail and the hustler Claire meet and form a bond that is stronger than either have experienced before or expected. The storyline is full of wars between covens of Dhampiri (part vampires) reaching for power. There are also the Sortiari (hunters) still chasing vampires to exti...

    5 - "Welcome back to the land of the living." Stars!I absolutely adored The Last True Vampire, I won’t say it is a huge surprise, because I loved its predecessor Stripped Bear, Kate Baxter can write and write really, really well. This story, the characters, the plot, the speed of how everything unwound and developed were all absolutely perfectly paced and described. I love me some PNR, and Vampires are up there with my favorites, add in a sassy...

    Baxter revives the fiercest of the paranormal creatures with the THE LAST TRUE VAMPIRE. This book has all the components that I love about a great Paranormal Romance. It even reminds me of one of my most read novels of all time, Dark Lover by J.R. Ward. Michael Aristov is the last vampire in a dying breed. When a chance meeting ignites a mating bond of sorts, Michael wants nothing more than to complain his made. The only thing is Claire Thompson ...

Several of my favourite vamp series have ended in the last 18 months and I was left longing for a new series to follow and have not had any luck...well until now! I'm really excited I found this on Netgalley and they gave it to me in exchange for an honest review. *does the happy dance* The Last True Vampire is the beginning of a new series by a brand new author Kate Baxter. You need to make note ...

    3.5 starsAncient, last standing vampire Mikhail Aristov meets simple human Claire at a club and has an instant bloodlust. What follows is a series of introducing her to the world of vampires and the concept of 'mates' while Mikhail tries to bring back the legacy of vampires. Short paranormal read with a LOT of sexy times. No cliffhangers however the main plot continues in the second book.

    Seriously. Hot. Damn. Killer worldbuilding, a heat level Demonica fans would appreciate, an alpha male who isn’t perfect, and a heroine with some steel to her spine.

    The vampire race has been driven to the edge of extinction by the Sortiari, an ancient sect who believe themselves the Guardians of Fate. As the last Ancient One, the fate of all vampires and possible vampires (called dhampirs) rests on Mikhail’s shoulders. As he heads out to feed at an LA nightclub, he senses his true mate. Claire is a hustler, doing what she needs to do to survive. When she sees a clearly rich looking man who seems to be high...

    Michael is the last of his kind, the only ancient vampire to survive the slayers who set out to eliminate his race. He survived their torture but has never forgiven himself for the deaths of his brethren and he has been punishing himself ever since by refusing to feed as much as he required and by keeping himself apart from the dhampirs who think of him as their king. Michael is the only one who can repopulate the vampire race and he can only do ...

    The title, the cover and the synopsis....wow I couldn't wait to start this book it sounded like the perfect book for me.Michael Aristov is the last true vampire, the king of his race, the last of the Ancient Ones all the rest were tortured and slaughtered by the Sortiari two and a half centuries ago, Mikhail (Michael) himself was tortured endlessly and then left for dead his existence now is just that he exists, he has no spark left in him he's d...

    Unfortunately this book just didn't work for me. I'm actually surprised that I didn't DNF yet, but I kept hoping I would start to enjoy it. I didn't like the hero, especially not his high-handed ways, and I didn't like that the heroine didn't put up a bigger fight. I mean, he compelled her to sleep for three days because she kept trying to escape after he kidnapped her, and she barely stayed mad at him for this, and then she slept with him the sa...

    I gave it 3.5 starsTHE LAST TRUE VAMPIRE has a very interesting blurb and I quickly got into the storyline when I started reading. Claire is just getting by as a waitress, but her side job as a pick pocket and hustler makes it so she has a little extra. I had no problem instantly liking her. We find out that she is very loyal and caring with a backbone to boot. Michael has a lot going for him, but it took me a bit to care about him and what happe...

The one person created to be his mate and return his soul to him. Unfortunately for him, she's a human.Baxter gives us everything we look for in a new series.

    Stars: 3.5Pros: I loved Claire and her attitude towards life. Even though she was thrown a lot of hard balls in life, she still kept her wits about her. The beginning of the story was amazing and than I felt that it kind of fizzled out, until the end. The ending leaves you with a happy feeling and sets Ronan up on his journey. Cons: At times I felt a little bored with the story and I wanted more action between Claire and Michael. I felt it took a...

    I liked the premise for this story but felt the world building was not fleshed out in a way that flowed well. It was a tad bit confusing at times. I really liked some of the supporting characters, in particular Ronan. My problem was that I just didn't like our couple. Michael was so overbearing, bossy and controlling. I never really like these kind of men in romance. I hated the way he treated Claire. I never really felt a connection between thes...

    A good start to a new vamp series. I found it a little repetitive in places and it really annoyed me how Claire's (view spoiler)[brain melted and she turned into a raging nymphomanic whenever Michael was around her. I get it was to reinforce they were mates, but I felt this was a little overboard. It isn't the same as having a strong emotional connection. (hide spoiler)]. Anyway, I enjoyed it regardless and looking forward to reading book 2

    This is another vampire story of vampire meets his destined mate and falls instantly in love. It’s finding The One you want to spend the rest of your life with among the centuries long purposeless vampire life. You get the picture. But the story is not without a plot. Oh, and did I mention the steamy romance? There is plenty of intense, steamy love scenes. The female ‘Vessel’ has appeared and this will help the King regain his strength and ...

    My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!! ***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest reviewThe cover is awesome of course, but I wished it would have shown his scar to be true to the book :)This is the first book I have read by Kate Baxter and the first in a new series. I think she knocked it out of the park. I loved it!! She took an old idea (vampires) and made it unique and completely her own. I will definitely be reading the rest of...

    I was going to write a lengthy review of this book. I was even making mental notes on all the things I would mention and then it became clear that won't be possible. So here is the main things that I didn't like. First of all this whole book contains at least for me to many reminders of other books of this gender. I won't mention names but when I read the book I was reminded non stop of other better ones. Second there was No chemistry between the...

    I am a sucker for paranormal romance. And if it has really cool vampires? Even better! Oh, who am I kidding? If they were really lame vampires, I’d probably still like the book. :) When I saw the description of The Last True Vampire by Kate Baxter, I knew I had to try it out. The fact that the author was new to me was just icing on the cake. Michael is literally the only vampire left and the vampire king by birthright. I really liked Michael an...

    I have been dying to get my hands on The Last True Vampire for months now so, of course, I was super excited to be able to sit down over the weekend and read it. Unfortunately after all that build up I was more than a little disappointed that I didn't end up loving it as much as I had hoped I would. Maybe it was all of the anticipation and expectations but there were so many things that just didn't work for me.So let's start with the hero, Mikhai...
