Read from January 24 to 26, 2016 — I own a copy
Synopsis: When Ashley walks into a shop run by the vampire, Verloren, they both get the surprise of their lives. Ash is about to learn that she’s not just another pretty young woman, while Verloren is astonished to find himself falling in love. But how can a vampire love a human? And what if the human isn’t as human as she seems? When Ash’s true nature reveals itself, the entire power structure of the world’s outsiders teeters on the brink of destruction. Verloren and Ash become more and more terrified as they grope their way toward the ultimate truth: that they hold the key to something much larger than their own survival.
Bookish Things: 204 pages. The cover has been updated as there are both a black and white option. I personally think the white looks less sinister. This is book 1 in the Endlessly Trilogy.
Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $3.18, paperback for $9.70 and Audible for $1.99
Endlessly, the first book in a trilogy, and really does introduce you to an interesting world of paranormal beings.
Verloren, our male lead, is an old (and I mean old) vampire who parades around in the human world as a goth. Being a vampire in Hunt’s world means being albino white, drinking blood and teaming up with werewolves to dispose of the bodies.
Ash, our female lead, is a bit of a nebulous being. At first we think she’s human, then she’s not, then she’s something else and well, where things end up, well I was not expecting that at all.
The story was fast paced, perhaps a little too fast in the romance department, but I can’t really complain about insta-love because it is explained and I guess I can kinda see why it happened the way it did.
Anyway, all in all, I didn’t love this, nor hate it. It was a very quick read, an easy read and had likable characters moving through a quick plot. Things didn’t drag, nor did they get too fast. The pacing was pretty much perfect.
I’d have liked a little more depth to the characters, but I think some of that might come in books 2 and 3. Well I can hope for that anyway.
One thing I noticed:
16% – … Could open her pedals (petals) and bathe…
