Publisher's Summary

"How can I describe the heaven that is your taste? I can't. There aren't enough superlatives..."

Former Soviet surgeon Roman Ivanescu honors his Hippocratic Oath never to do harm by working at a blood bank in Manhattan. Quenching his violent thirst without killing a soul, Roman resists his natural urges and dances on the edge of sanity. Entranced by his first taste of her, Roman hunts down prima ballerina Maiko Himura, who awakens in him a passion he thought long dead. But when Roman finds out his new love has just a few weeks left on earth, he must make a terrible choice. And for every gift, there is a price.

A vampire's passionate confession to his beloved, J.T. Geissinger's The Last Vampire transforms a classic predator into a man forced to make desperate choices for love.

    I really enjoyed this story and loved how it was told through a letter confessional left for Maiko when she wakes, kinda sad ending though, beautiful but sad!

    What did you love best about The Last Vampire?

    This is one of the best vampire stories I have ever heard (and I have read a great deal). The story is original, engaging and beautiful.


    What about Christopher Lane’s performance did you like?

    Fantastically narrated, Christopher Lane truly brings these characters to life.

    Story
    "A delectable little morsel of good storytelling"

    This is a romance but without the bodice ripping and any detailed sex which are replaced with a very good story told almost entirely in first-person with sensuality based in life experiences and not only or even primarily what goes in the bedroom. The story is a letter, a confession by 122-year-old vampire, phlebotomist, and relatively intentionally isolated, Roman Ivanescu. He’s “telling” it to ballerina, Maiko Himura.

    Some of the language of passion and experience is so lovely, and the narrator does a great job bringing it to life when portraying Roman, less so with Maiko. But her dialogue is very few. Who she is, beyond being an Asian ballerina with a certain blood type and health concern, remains a mystery.

    This story provides a mythology about humans’ connection to our blood which was new and interesting. And it also had an underlining degree of levity which really added to its charm. The vampire mythology is altered a bit. It’s flushed out in some ways but also different than commonly portrayed aspects. Yet, there are also some unanswered questions left about vampires, some answers Roman admits he doesn’t know. Overall, the story is a very good one, one that is romantic and bittersweet and well worth listening to.
