Regret. Loneliness. Despair. Alina struggles with these feelings every night. Centuries ago, her kind was all but wiped out by a mysterious disease that left them unable to produce the venom needed to make new vampires. She's the last one - isolated in what feels like a never-ending nightmare.
But she discovers a homeless man named Terrence who's in the early stages of becoming a vampire. He doesn't remember how he got turned. That doesn't matter to Alina because if he feeds, he'll complete his transformation and have the power to save her race from extinction.
Alina offers to teach him vampire culture and history. Longing to find a place where he belongs, Terrence accepts. But he's appalled at the idea of living on human blood, so he refuses to feed. Alina resorts to manipulation and deceit to try and get what she wants.
Meanwhile, Alina's past closes in on both of them as an immortal named Lanier hunts her to avenge the murder of his brother. And he's been ordered by a mysterious figure named Duke to find a special book thought to be in Alina's possession. But what's in this book? Why is it so important?
If Alina can save her race, she'll find her redemption. But can she persuade Terrance to do the unthinkable...before it's too late?

Fast, intense action
The character were so alive and active it was like being in the story. The never was a dull moment.
This is truly cutting edge audio entertainment. This is refreshingly different because the action taking place let me easily imagine what was going through the characters minds rather than the narrator telling me like in traditional audio books. I loved that there is a full cast of characters that bring the entire story to life. Another plus is that it is fairly short and I could listen to it in just two settings rather than five or six. The narrator and all of the actors did an excellent job! Three Thumbs Up Audiblescripts! I'll definitely listen to more Audiblescripts productions. Thanks you.
Powerful and Thought Provoking.....
One Last One is the FIRST vampire story that I've ever chosen to take notice of. No, I do not live under a rock; I simply never thought this genre would appeal to me. I was into Chapter Two before I realized that I was hooked.
The first Chapter wasn't poorly written, it was my getting accustomed to the narrator's voice and inflection, while trying to establish the cast of characters in order to readily recognize them as they moved through the story.
Once I felt comfortable with the characters, their interactions, the conflicts being presented, and the timeline of events, I began to listen in earnest. Powerful, action packed, with a touch of melancholy at the end, I truly enjoyed the story line and would certainly entertain thoughts of listening to a sequel.
Lanier - believable and genuine....I enjoyed the emotions he expressed in his voice.
I found her character to as narrator to be spot on ...
Particularly memorable is the scene in which Alina tells Terrence how very proud she is of him.
