I had no life…
For the past ten years, I’ve been kept away from the world, treated as a danger to those around me. While the visions I have both confuse and frighten me, I know I’m not the dangerous one in the family. Escape has never been within my reach. When my father dragged me along on an expedition to an ancient temple, I discovered a door hidden in the wall, and everything changed.
He would live forever…
After freeing a vampire from his stone prison, I was swept away to the island belonging to his coven. He swears none of them will harm me, but I can’t be so sure. Zachary is convinced he knew me before he was imprisoned—three hundred years ago. He tries to get me to remember our shared past…while I find myself more concerned with our future.
My blood could end them…
When the woman I was mistaken for appears, she brings startling revelations for both of us. She knows more about me than I ever knew about myself. My blood is unique, and the key to a dark plot by the vampires that locked Zachary away. Vowing to protect me, Zachary must find a way to shield me from his worst enemy, for if the enemy gets my blood, the entire world will be in danger.
"Blood of the Immortal (Blood #1)" Reviews
Let me start by saying what I did really like in this book
1. Vic – Although he is a secondary who comes in during the middle of the book. I just love his personality and loyalty. He also scream Alpha.
2. Corbin – Another secondary character. Who is just compassionate.
3. Supporting characters are all good.
4. It’s a different type of Vampire book, you know where the go outside they will burn, well not in this book.
5. The family drama with Arielle and her mom. It was just right
6. The other woman drama, was good too. You know there is always one.
What I think needs improvement
1. Things happened so fast you really have to pay attention. It seems very rushed
2. Zach and Arielle fell in love very fast, were married, and pregnant even faster. There was no love story
3. Description of looks. I would like a better idea of how they look.
4. No details on the sex scene now I get it might what to be for new adults but something about her losing her virginity.
5. The killing (I won’t say who) but too fast
6. Main Male character not an Alpha, I mean he is a vampire he should be a an alpha.
7. The cover it’s not very welcoming I wouldn’t have brought it, I also think this should be labeled young adult not new adult.
I would recommend this book as a young adult.
I received a copy in exchange of an honest review.
I liked very much the story and the beginning. The book is very well written, on a very compelling subject: love, soul mate and special bond, branching into the mysteries lying in blood and genetics, complex family connections, old families feud, all under a paranormal wrap which gives extra sparkles to the story. As much as the beginning is intriguing and urges you to read more, the developing story is lacking the zing that makes a book a page turner, despite the fast pace, good plot twists, exellent writing and good characters. Probably the main characters, Zachary and Arielle are not as well rendered as they could and their chemistry is lacking; their long confinement and young age can partially explain it for Arielle, but for Zachary, he says "a boy of 16 is a man, expect to be able to live by himself and provide". I would say he is a little bit too perfect and becomes a bit boring.
I'd say this book is an excellent exercise in style, entertaining for fans of paranormal and the author is definitely one to keep a look onto.
This is a fast paced book so hold on tight. Arielle leads a sheltered life but when she hears Zachary and discovers his tomb she is swept away to a life that she has never know. During the book she finds out things about her family and herself that she could never image. The action in this book never stops. When she is not discovering who she is she is fighting for her life. I loved that this book was a different spin from most vampire books.
All of the characters are well developed. There are many characters introduced throughout the book but it is easy to know who they are and what there role is in the clan. Zachary and Arielle's love is so endearing and true. The one and only thing I would have liked to see is a little bit more explanation of the clan and their history.
The epilogue was great and even though it does not end in a cliffhanger there seemed to be an option for more books. Hope so. This is a great paranormal YA book.
A complimentary e-copy of this book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.
Love this book!
5 star rating
I like the characters and the story is not like a typical vampire slayer story that's commonplace
*A complimentary e-copy of this book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.*
I. Loved. This. Book. Definitely not your typical vampire read. Which made it refreshing & unique. The story draws you in from the very beginning. It's fast paced, loaded with action, and romantic. What I really loved was how the paranormal elements were derived from mythology. Now that, peaked my interest. There was never a dull moment in this story. I'm afraid if I were to go into this story & tell you what it's about, I'd give too much away. However, you'll be getting somewhat of a HEA. The author left room for another book. I think it'd be just as awesome. So if you're a paranormal lover of vampires & you're looking for something different & intriguing, pick this book up. You will not be disappointed.
I came accross this book on Goodreads and saw the cover and thought that it was going to be a children's book. However after seeing it a few times on here I read the synopsis and decided to request to review.
The Book itself was really good. It was well written and moved along really quickly. It was was entertaining and serious at the same time. The only reason that I gave it four stars was because of the cover. It makes the book look like it is a graphic novel and not something for an adult. If there was anything that I could suggest to this author it would be to "grow up" the cover. Other than that I found it a really good book and I can't wait to see if the author continues the story. I hope she does!
