The Last True Vampire
He is the last of his race. The one true king of the vampires. Michael Aristov roams the nightclubs of L.A. after dark, haunted by his past and driv ...more
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 extinguish them from existence. Mikhail must join with ...more
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 take-no-shit heroine and I was a pretty happy campe ...more
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 doesn’t know anything about the world. Or him.
The Last True Vampire is the beginning of a new series by a brand new author Kate Baxter. You need to make note of her name because if the series keeps going as t ...more
Ancient, 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.
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 drifting making himself suffer by going twenty, thi ...more
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 same day she awoke from this induced sleep. WTH? The...more
Dark desires and pulse pounding excitement draws the reader into an exhilarating and dangerous world as Michael finds sweet salvation in the form of his mate but discovers that she’s only human. The strong enthralling characters demand your attention as sparks fly in every direction when Michaels und ...more
THE 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 happened to him. He has a long and difficult (and prett ...more
After centuries of barely living as a soulless creature of the night, Mikhail has finally found the keeper of his soul. 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. Hot, potential heroes abound as do villains set to destroy everything they've built. What was most surprising was the fluidity of Baxter's story. The overall flow of ...more
Pros: 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 little too long for him to wake up and realize wh ...more

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 powers to over come his enemies, the ruthless Sortiari. ...more
"Our souls are tethered, love. Irrevocably braided into a single thread."I loved the sound of this book ever since I first heard about it via social media, and before you say it, It had nothing to do with the hot cover whatsoever! Lol! As soon as I got the opportunity, I got stuck in, excited for some steamy vampire action. If you love a ...more

***Received a copy of the ebook for an honest review
The 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 this series and checking out anything new Kate co ...more
Michael is literally the only vampire left and the vampire king by birthright. I really liked Michael and I understood why he was depressed and reluctant to ...more

Rating: +2 stars
The first couple of chapters were interesting and kept me going but after that it just kinda went downhill. For me it felt like it took too long to get H/h into their relationship. It's a push-pu ...more
Review posted here...
The Last True Vampire is the first book in the series of the same name and I really enjoyed everything about it.
I’m a sucker for paranormal romance – when it’s done well – and still love the Vampire stories as much as ever so this appealed to me straight away. In the story we find an old vampire who is just living, not enjoying life and full of despair because he is the last vampire. He is the last because the enemy wiped them all o ...more
So let's start with the hero, Mikhail, because most of my issues with this book began ...more
