"The Last Vampire: Author's New Revised Edition" by Kathryn Meyer Griffith was a excellent paranormal romance read. Only Ms. Griffith can present vampires in a world that has gone to hell
and keep the reader on the edge of there seat.

The character ...Emma was simply off the chart... leaving me only say... this was some woman. After her friend Larry

The Last Vampire by Kathryn Meyer Griffith is set in an apocalyptic background, reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Her protagonist, Emma, witnesses waves of disaster, wiping out most of the population including her family. Her co-worker, Larry, a ‘Prepper’, dies while they flee the devastation during the work day. He leaves her with his hidden cave stocked with months’ worth of supplies. The aftermath of the disaster shows humans at their ugliest, looting, raping, and pillaging for survi ...more
My Opinion:
Best original vampire story I have read. I was amazed at the imagination and creativity of the author. Not only are we in a world that is self destructing. We are in Emma’s world of how her life is going and the turmoil within. Why is she alive? What will she do? How will she survive? I was engrossed in this story and didn’t put it down till I finished it and it took me awhile. I loved the descriptiveness of the book throughout. There was no point in this book that I couldn’t imagine

Recommended to Mareena by: Kathryn Meyer Griffith
Emma Bloodworth had survived the earthquake which took her husband and children and left the world clinging to life. The apocalypse had started a year earlier with plague, starvation, war and death. Emma tries desperately to locate the rest of her family in Maine, and along the way struggles to keep alive. When a calamity befalls Emma and she is initiated into a frightening new world, she still struggles to survive what she has become. It becomes more and more difficult to hide what she is from ...more

Actual rating 4.5 stars!
This was the most original vampire story I've ever experienced. It was so different which isn't easy to accomplish. The book started with an apocalyptic event, that immidiately had me hooked. Our main character survives, to find herself in trouble later. She is rescued and changed into a vampire. She was determined to keep her humanity, and went pretty far to preserve it. I thought the ending was perfect for this story. This was my fourth book from this author, and I have

I’m not one for paranormal romance. I like fantasy to be epic and my sci-fi to be intergalactic. But it is important as a reader, and especially as a reviewer, to branch out into unfamiliar genres and sub genres to gain a greater appreciation of what the writing community has to offer. If you are looking to branch out into the paranormal romance genre for the first time then The Last Vampire: Revised Author’s Edition by Kathryn Meyer Griffith is great place to start.

The Last Vampire
The Last Vampire has been previously published and has been altered for this current edition.
It would seem as though it's the end of the world. Major earthquakes have swallowed towns, floods have decimated people and what natural disasters haven't destroyed, a plague has stepped in to finish the job. Few people are left alive and those that remain living have succumbed to barbarism, looting and killing at will.

Emma was a hard working mother, wife and graphic artist for a big St. Louis firm. She became a widow, unemployed mother whose children were now gone. St. Louis, like most of the rest of the world, was disappearing into fires, floods and explosions. When the Big One hit St. Louis, she was packing up her office with a co-worker. She knew in her heart there was no sense going toward home - nothing there any longer. Fortunately, the co-worker was also a survivalist and, in this time of plagues and d ...more

Pretty discouraging, if this is the way it’s going to happen…with several bangs and then many whimpers, but it could very well be, except for the vampire part, of course. Emma is portrayed as a woman who isn’t aware of the inner depths of courage and resourcefulness within herself until she’s actually forced to draw on those reserves. She does what she has to, sometimes with regrets, sometimes eagerly. She misses Byron when he dies, not because she’s now as he is but because he’s another being, ...more

I liked this story.I think that if the repetition would have been reduced that the book could have been much shorter.I found the narrator,Erica L Risburg ,distracting at the very least.She did not read it like one normally would,taking no breaks where there should have been some and breaking at odd times.Her voice is nice,but her character voices aren't very good.The story,Emma is made into the last vampire and she turns into a wolf.I still am not sure how this happens and what the difference is ...more

One of the most original vampire books I've read (and I read a lot of them over the years). Adored the book and plan to read this revised edition soon.
