Great Immortal Romance, can be read as a stand-alone.
I really liked this book from start to finish. This was the 30th book in the Argeneau series and the first one that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it without feeling like I missed anything at all in not reading any of the previous books in the series.
There was plenty of background information given to explain what was going on and it was done in a way that completely fit in with the story and didn’t feel like added spots of background information just dumped in to inform readers new to the series.
The two main characters were Magnus, an immortal that has been alive since the late 700’s A.D. and Allie who is mortal, but is his potential life mate. She is also the adoptive mother to an immortal boy named Liam from her neighbor and best friend.
The book (or series for that matter) has a different origin story for Vampires or Immortals as they are called. They don’t like it when they are referred to as Vampires. Which is pretty funny in the story.
“He will not burst into flames under the sun. The boy is an immortal, not one of your mythical vampires.”
Though they have different origins, and have a few other differences, the fact that they get so offended is pretty silly considering they must be the origin of the Vampire myths. Especially since some of them have been around since more than 1300 years B.C. and they do have fangs and drink blood to survive. Plus they are very strong, have super speed, and can heal from just about any injury.
The romance between Magnus and Ally is very sweet as well as sizzling hot. It seems newly mated couples can’t get enough of each other and their passion is overwhelming. There is also a storyline surrounding Liam, how Ally got him and rogue immortals after her that is very suspenseful.
Overall the book was a terrific paranormal romance. It was a very believable story with a an awesome origin to the immortal race. I plan to read more of these books because I liked this one so much.
Thanks to Edelweiss for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
