Audiobook Review: Blood Laws (Immortal Curse, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Blood Laws by Lexi C. Foss

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Astasiya Davenport’s best friend is dead. No, not just dead–murdered. Burned alive. Decapitated. And the only one who can help her figure out what happened is a demon masquerading as a billionaire playboy.

Because that happens in real life.

Yet Astasiya has always known the supernatural exists. Not the kind in fairy tales or happily-ever-afters, but the kind that kills.

Issac Wakefield knows the rules–when you find a fledgling immortal in the city, you kill her. Except Astasiya intrigues him with her uncanny abilities, marking her as too useful for death.

With revenge on his mind, he strikes up an agreement with her instead, one that’ll benefit them both. But as complications arise, secrets unravel, initiating a lethal game that threatens both of their lives.

Loyalties will be tested.
Bonds will be made.
And a forbidden love will rise.

Welcome to the Immortal Curse world, where angels and vampires are redefined and Seraphim reign.

The heroine: Astasiya Davenport (a.k.a. Stas; a.k.a. Iya) – as a child she had an angel friend Gabriel, who promised to keep her safe. He brought her to a new family when she was no longer safe with her real parents. He promised to one day return. He said she would forget him and one day would be ready to learn the truth.

The Hero: Issac Wakefield – When Isaac comes across Astasiya, he is surprised that she is immune to his ability to manipulate the minds of humans and supernaturals alike when she is able to see him through his glamour. He hides her away and is determined to find out more about her. Isaac could live anywhere in the world, but resides in the city for the revenge that drives him. He leaves but plans to look into Stasiya’s background since she intrigued him so much.

The Story: When Stas goes to see her friend Owen, she sees a gorgeous man outside his door, who seems surprised that she can see him. After the door opens to another man Stasi smells burning flesh which gives her a flashback to her parents deaths and she knows something has been done to Owen whom was her friend, they were both supposed to graduate from NYU next week with masters degrees.

Issac is a demon hiding in plain sight in New York City as a billionaire playboy and CEO of a pharmaceutical company. He wants Stasa to pose as his girlfriend and he promises to give her information about what she is. Stasa agrees and things get steamy between them from the start of their partnership.

Narrated by Sarah Puckett and Joel Froomkin, this book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. Sarah Puckett has a soft feminine voice which is a bit monotone and unemotional sounding, so she wasn’t one of my favorite narrators, but her voice wasn’t annoying, so I kept listening. Joel Froomkin’s narration matched Issac perfectly, he has a cultured sounding voice which worked well for the wealthy Ichorian.

The one thing I disliked about this book was that they had names (Hydrarian, Ichorian) for immortals, and it took quite a while to figure out what exactly each of these was in our terms and how everything worked within the world of the book. Though the world was definitely intriguing and mysterious.
