Publisher's Summary

Broke ex-waitresses aren’t supposed to have archenemies.
Seriously, that kind of crap is way above our pay grade.
 

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.
 

Ransley Thorpe turned his closest friend in a last-ditch effort to save his life. Now all three of us have targets painted on our backs, and the powerful demon who might be able to protect us is the last person in the three realms we should trust.
 

To survive, we’ll have to rekindle old alliances and rely on friends who have only the barest conception of the danger they’re about to face. One thing is crystal clear - even if we succeed in holding our enemies at bay, my life is about to change in ways I could never have foreseen.
 

As the only demon/fae/human hybrid in existence, I thought I had problems before.
Silly me. It turns out, I didn’t know when I was well off.

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

Order book five 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.

Love Love loved it,

This is fifth book in this series and each book gets better and better. I love the characters and the humor they have with each other. Each book keeps me on the edge of my seat throughout the book. This was no exception. Rans confronts i Nigellus about the blood wine and makes him leave. Now He and Zorah and Guthrie go on the run. As i said this book kept me on the edge of my seat. The fight with the Fae that found them and tried to take them prisoner and then tried to kill them. It makes me hate the Fae. (i have never cared for books about the Fae). The end was a surprise. I cannot wait till the final book to see how this all plays out. As always Gwendolyn Druyor does a fantastic job. I could not imagine another narrator taking her place with these book.

I was gifted this book at my request in exchange for an honest review.

Still continues to engage and entertain

Book five picks up right after the climax of book four and deals with the aftermath of the decision made in the last book. So we get some characters dealing with their new circumstances, while Rans and Zorah have to plan on what they can do next. It is hard to talk about things in the fifth book of a series without ruining things, but just know this book keeps up the twists and turns of the prior books.

The narration by Gwendolyn Druyor is as always great and she has become the embodiment of this series for me, and couldn't imagine anyone else voicing it. I thought this one was as good as the prior books and is seemingly setting up the end of the series? or the current arc? I am not sure, but I look forward to the next book. If you enjoyed the four prior books this one will surely please you as well.

The Last Vampire Book 5

This book starts exactly where the previous ended and the drama and suspense doesn’t start. I can’t tell you how much I love this little group of characters in this series. Although there isn’t as big of a cliffhanger in the end you will still be begging for more. I can only hope that the audiobook is combing out the same time as the kindle book in December.

Terrific Series & Narration🎧Fascinating & Exciting

This fifth installment of Rans and Zorah’s fantastic story takes some interesting turns. At the end of book four we found out Guthrie is Zorah’s grandfather, Rans could not let him die so he turned him. Guthrie is not too happy about becoming a vampire. A weakened Nigellus returns to hell to find Myrial, they are still a threat but Rans and Zorah need to come up with a plan on what to do next. With the help of Albigard they take Guthrie and go to travel on a yacht hoping to stay out of sight from both the demons and Fae. Everything is going well until it it is not, when they found by the Fae. After a chase and battle they manage to escape but something happens to Zorah, she absorbed too much energy from the Fae. They rush to get her medical help. There is never a dull moment in this book, there is plenty of drama, some angst, some thrilling and suspenseful moments and a surprising twist. I am looking forward to see what comes next in book six. Thank you R.A. Stefan & Jaelynn Woolf for another awesome story, I love your creative and imaginative minds and the world you created.

I listened to the Audible edition, Gwendolyn Druyor is a fantastic narrator and a versatile voice artist. She brings these characters to life, giving each their own distinct voice and personality, as well as heart and attitude. She switches characters flawlessly keeping the story in a perfect flow. You could hear how much heart she puts into her work as she projects the emotions of the characters as well as the drama of the story into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen🎧

Perfection

This series is simply utter perfection. I adore everything R.A. Steffan writes. They way she builds worlds and characters draws me in. The way she writes is beautiful and soul changing.

I love Gwendolyn's narration. She brings the story to life and gives each character their own unique personality.

Still full of exciting twists and turns

Let’s just say this book didn’t go where I expected it to go, and that’s definitely for my good as a reader. We ended book 4 with a big reveal that Guthrie is basically Zorah’s grandfather, and Rans had to turn him into a vampire.

In this book, we have the fallout from that. The brewings of a showdown between demons and fae. The very sad reintroduction of Len and Tris, as well as a Caribbean almost escape that features Rans dressed in a corset vest. Plus, there is sex used as communication and healing, which is usually present in a Steffan/Woolf book.

Without giving away a huge spoiler, there is yet something else I didn’t see coming to end this book and set up the final Rans/Zorah book. (Series fans need not worry. There will be a spin-off series!) It’s a call back to something that happened when Rans and Zorah were in front of the fae court, and I didn’t see it playing out this way. Well done, authors!

I do caution new readers to start with the beginning. This isn’t a series that’s made to start anywhere you want to. There are some series like that (look at you, Stephanie Plum), but this isn’t one of them. If you take the time, though, you’ll usually have a rewarding reading experience.

Gwendolyn Druyor is as much the voice of Steffan (or Steffan/Woolf) as James Marsters became the voice of Harry Dresden. Listeners would revolt if there were ever a narrator change. But her skill is in things that other narrators don’t try. In one scene, Zorah is clearly eating and talking at the same time. She completely sounds like it. That’s pure skill right there.

Good stuff. Book six to wrap this up promises to be a cracker!

Zorah and Rans are hotter than ever...............

This book is the fifth installment in this paranormal romance featuring two incredibly powerful supernatural creatures: a vampire named Ransley and a half-demon/half-human named Zorah. This fifth book really needs to be read as part of the entire series because it picks up right from the end of book four with Rans' best friend recovering from being turned into a vampire after almost dying in book four. The action takes off from that point and never really lets go. As with all of the books in this series, the story follows Zorah and Rans as they navigate this incredible world built by Steffan and Woolf. However, as with every book this team writes, they somehow manage to keep the story fresh and dynamic. In this fifth book, neither Rans or Zorah make their usual visit to Hell. Rather, they take a special cruise ship catering to the varied sexual needs of it's wealthy passengers. As I said, these ladies are always changing just enough of the story in order to keep me guessing. The book ends with a major, jaw-dropping surprise, and I am anxiously awaiting the release of the sixth book.

Gwendolyn Druyor's narration is as sublime as always. She narrates all the books in the series, and she is the perfect choice for both Zorah and Rans. She differentiates subtly but well between characters, and her performance is flawless. Her delivery adds just the right amount of emotion to keep the story exciting and entertaining, and I would happily listen to anything that she narrates.

So Many Changes

I had a hard time writing my review for book four in this series without giving away too much of the plot, things like the fact that Guthrie is now a vampire, Rans had to turn him to save his life. The demon who his life force is bound to left him for dead him to get back at Rans and Zorah, we also found out that Guthrie's DNA was used by the demon when she/he had sex with her grandmother making Guthrie Zorah’s grandfather, so we have the fallout from that to deal with in this book.

The fae make another appearance in this book and it looks like there is going to be a showdown between demons and fae of epic proportions. We also meet again Len, Zorha's friend from earlier books but things aren't going well for him since Rans wiped Tris' memory.

As this isn’t a series you can start anywhere I recommend that you start at the beginning, it is worth taking the time as the story just keeps getting better and better.

As I've come to expect with these books the ending is a massive cliffhanger with yet another surprise for us the listener - I can't say more without spoiling this book for you. I will say I can't wait to listen to book six!

Gwendolyn Druyor does an incredible job with this book, as she always does. I can't praise her skill highly enough.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.
