The Immortal Who Loved Me

The Immortal Who Loved MeSherry Carne was a successful business woman but was unlucky in love. That will all change when a young girl runs into her shop and hides from four men who barged into the store. Sherry will find herself immersed into a world that was hidden from her and she will not be alone any longer.

Basileios “Basil” Argeneau is one of the oldest immortals. He had lost his mate right as Atlantis had fallen and has not found another life mate since then. That will change for Basil when he meets Sherry. Though before he can get her to agree to be changed he will have to protect her from danger.

The Immortal Who Loved Me is the twenty-first book to the Argeneau Family series by Lynsay Sands. Alright so I thought that this book was good, it wasn’t my favorite. Throughout this series there have been amazing books, great books, and good books. I guess I felt that Sherry and Basil went straight to having sex right away. I’m okay with that but I wanted a little more from the characters before they let the life mate passion overwhelm them. I found Sherry’s character a little strange at times but she was interesting being that she was very outspoken. Basil’s character was calm and collected. I found him interesting as he was Lucian’s brother. I can’t remember if he was in the previous books but overall I liked his character.

There was another character that I liked in the book which was Stephanie. Stephanie was a young girl that was changed to a non fanger by Leo as well as her sister Dani. I really can’t wait to read Stephanie’s story which I would assume Lynsay Sands will be writing. In this book she was playing matchmaker, she was like a mini Marguerite.

What kept me going was the mystery of the immortal that had been in Sherry’s life. It appeared that the mystery immortal had controlled Sherry as they programmed certain answers for her to respond when she was asked about a certain person. The answers are given and it was intriguing but at the same time not great with what the immortal did.

On a side note I loved reading about Lucian and Leigh. You got to know what was happening with them which made me happy especially with how they had a tragedy several books back.

I have About a Vampire, which is with Justin. Justin has been a character that has been in the series for quite awhile and I am looking forward to reading his story next.

Betrayed and Hunted

BBetrayed (Vampires in America,  #5.5)etrayed

Raphael is one of the most powerful Vampire Lords out there and with one wrong move a war could breakout. Raphael will have to make choices about territorial lines and whether some allies will be strengthened or weakened but there will be an attempt on his life. They will have to find the traitor and stop him.

So I screwed up and read the sixth book first before Betrayed which means I know what has happened as Reynolds talks about the assassination attempt on Raphael. Now we know that it will take a lot to kill this vampire and hopeful the author will not want to kill off Raphael as he is one of the characters I love reading about. I thought that this novella added a good amount of detail considering it was a novella and it was a good intro to the sixth book and the problems that were going to occur.

HunteHunted (Vampires in America, #6.5)d

The Vampire Lord of the Midwest has fallen to his death and the new territory is up for grabs. Only the strongest vampire will be able to hold on to this territory. Aden will be wanting the job and by helping the Vampire Lords he will have a chance at the territory but first he will have to get rid of the competition and the one who wants vengeance against the Lords.

I am reading Hunted in the correct order this time. Once I finished Betrayed I started to read Hunted as it comes right after the sixth book. I liked this book as it gives us a good idea of who Aden is but I have a feeling there is much more to this vampire and I can’t wait to find out. So the act of revenge was pretty simple and it was a woman scorned, Magada who was an lawyer for Lucas. She has been angry as he assigned away from him and she wanted him to suffer. She will make the wrong move when Raphael’s mate will be in danger. It doesn’t go well for the lawyer.

So the next book I am reading of D B Reynolds is obviously the last book to the series which I own is Aden. I am excited to read his story to find out more about this man and because it is located in Chicago. I have been waiting for Chicago to be part of the series as I am an Illinois resident. Chicago was where I went a lot as a kid for museums and watching professional football, baseball, basketball and hockey live from the stadium. I am wondering what type of detail she will put in for this book to reference the city. I will find out soon as I am reading the seventh book next.
