“Txema Ybarra is the most unenviable nineteen-year-old girl alive.

Smart, pretty, and athletically gifted, this University of Tennessee freshman should be enjoying college life and her entrance into adulthood. And for a moment she does… until the vampires show up.

Born with an unusual ‘twin teardrop’ birthmark on her neck, Txema (pronounced Chema) is one of only a handful of females in the world who bear this trait. It marks her as a vessel of eternal youth and beauty for an elite vampire society determined to protect her precious blood… But it also is the only thing standing in the way of a rogue ‘undead’ nation determined to destroy mankind and usurp the power their sexier brethren have held uncontested for centuries.

Caught in the middle of this war after all the other bearers of the birthmark are murdered, Txema must flee America and heads to France under the protection of five beautiful vampires who all have a vested interest in her survival. The race is on to save her blood, as well as her very life, to ensure the survival of Les Amantes de Vampire.

Otherwise, Txema will be the last one… the vampires’ last lover.”


The Vampire’s last lover is perfect for fans of the Vampire diaries. The novel is written from Txema’s point of view, who is nineteen, and it does contain plenty of teen angst. From what I can remember of my teen years, I found Txema’s emotional state so accurate, this book could have been written by a teenage girl.

I did find the book enjoyable with an original plot and many twists, but I do think this book is more suitable for a younger audience or YA fans. The Vampire’s last lover is a unique story that will entertain.
