Immortal Embrace is a story about a girl name Sophia Pierce who was tragically turned into a vampire. When she was embraced by her new vampire family, she found hope and the support she needed to move on. Living a very long life can be a bit boring for a teenager, especially when you don’t have many friends. But soon enough, she bumps into a mortal, Nathanial, who utterly takes her breath away. Her thoughts are consumed by him and she wonders why she is drawn to him besides the fact that he smel ...more
Her scream rips through the entire house, as the family runs to the horrific source, the wailing cuts right through to my very core.

And so, with a scream, it begins: Charlotte Blackwell’s masterpiece of adverbial sodomy. In these pages paper thin characters Instantly, Suddenly, quietly, Reluctantly, softly explore the boring side of teen romance and…vampirism? Magic?

To quote Charlotte: “How do I explain it to her without letting the cat out of the bag?”

Sadly, the cat is already out of the bag.

When I first read the synopsis I couldn't wait to read it. But when I got it the cover looked very cheap, with the writing being very blurry.

I found it very difficult to read due to its style of writing. It was very uncomfortable. It lacked emotion and it wasn't very conversational when the characters were interacting, it wasn't believable. A lot of the same things were being repeated on numerous occasions for example, Sophia ranting that she cant be near Nate.... I cant be near him, I'm a monst

Today is the best day of my life. Finally I met Charlotte face to face! it was sooo unexpected. Normaly ppl dont come to Calgary and finally I met one of my most Fav Author. Charlotte is an amazing person as well. Also! I personaly think shes really pretty!
The book is good, but there was a few disadvantages. The language of the book seem to be lacking. Blackwell's writing can be a bit irritating and it seems as though she may have rushed up writing the book and it did seem the dialogue was not legit. Blackwell's style of writing was like the other book i read by Lanzarotta, i think if the writing was more clear, conversational and emotional, the book would of been really amazing.

The things is love about this book is the first person. I'm a fan of

Immortal Embrace is not like a Twilight movie or book. There are more than just vampires, there are witches as well. The author did research of places as most authors don't. The book held me to the edge of my seat and I finished it the day I got it. It was nice to see that there were more than just vampires, but with the witches it give it more pizazz. The following of Sophia and Nate was understandable because of what Sophia saw her brother do to someone he loved and Sophia trying to resist lov ...more
I was chosen as a teen test reader prior to publication and... wow! I read this book in 6 hours and I just couldn't put it down! This book made the characters come to life and it felt as if I was watching a movie of it in my head and honestly I liked it better then twilight!

I recommend this book to young adults, teens, adults and really just anyone who like vampire romance and it even throws in a little bit of witches for you. SO, if your like me and like the shows charmed, vampire diaries, ect

Shelves: project-to-ditch, dnf
yeahh , i don't know if i am going to continue this.. i still have like 30 pages, but it is soo boring, so so boring, i don't like it, the romance is stupid, i like a well built romance, this is like total dumbness love, from the first sight, unfortunately i don't believe in love from first sight, i believe in likeness and attraction first but not love, it is what comes after that makes someone fall for the other.

And stupid characters.. except maybe Alexander :P pretty boy

i loved the cover so i

A great story of vampires coming to age. It's moving and heart warming. The characters are people you take into your heart and keep them there.
Charlotte Blackwell's first story in the Embrace series is a great beginning and I see this series becoming one that adults as well as teens will read over and over.
Sophia was turned into a vampire over 100 years ago. Nathaniel is human, they are totally attracted to each other! There are witches, bad vamps, good vamps and a great storyline!
I did like this book, there are just a few things that could have made it better. The style of writing was a bit hard to get through. Everything was very proper, no contractions, and it didn't flow very easily. The story itself was a good one though, think Twilight with a girl vamp and boy human, but then mix a bit of Charmed in there as well with the Witch sisters discovering their powers and inheriting their Book of Shadows from their Grams. I loved both Twilight and Charmed so that side appea ...more
I was contacted by the author of this book and asked if I would read it in exchange for an honest review. I read the blurb and an extract on her website and decided it looked good and so accepted.
Sophia Pierce is a Vampire, she never wanted this life but has learnt to deal with the consequences, her adopted family live by rules and refuse to feed off of mortals, they control their cravings and live on donated blood or animal blood. They try to blend into society and come across as a normal lovi
Oke first of all, I love the cover. So I'm kind of in struggle with myself what to say or what to think about this book. The book is about vampires, although you tend to forget that throughout the book. I hated the writing style, you were told everything and shown nothing. I'm not really sure how to explain. It was kind of like a big diary instead of a story. I was frustrated with the writing style the moment I began. It lakced emotion and it wasn't really conversational. The story was okay, but ...more
This is the story of a teenage girl named Sophia and her family, all of which are vampires. Although they are vampires, they live among humans. So that neighbors do not get suspicious of them, they have to relocate places to live about every 10 years. Samantha and her family return to a town they once lived in before and get settled. On the first day of high school for Sophia and her siblings, Sophia bumps into a boy named Nathaniel. Their attraction to each other is instantaneous, intense and c ...more

Immortal Embrace is a delightful read! Charlotte Blackwell spins a terrific story, building intrigue in layers that keeps you turning the pages for more. In the past I have been turned off of most vampire novels, but Charlotte has completely won me over, and I am now seeking out other vampire stories.

Sophia Pierce is a young woman who was turned, or embraced, and has learned to live as a vampire through those who have become her family. She meets a young man, and the story takes off in a wonderf

As a vampire, Sophia has always kept to herself, but as a high school student will she learn to step out of her comfort zone a little? Sophi
The book was very good. I couldn't put it down even though it seemed a bit... staged. The plot was very good, with the villains defined and you could practically see trouble coming. The characters were so-so believable and the only one that seemed truly alive was Alex and Caspian, other than that it felt a bit forced or, like I said before, staged.
I found myself rolling my eyes in almost every page at the cheesy lines thrown in between Sophia and Nate. And the first thought that came to my mind

I really hate to give a 1 star or a bad review...especially when everyone else loved it so much. Truthfully reading this book was painful for me. The writing wasn't my cup of tea. I've read far better written things in first person and its my least favourite voice to have a book in. I felt like the author and her characters kept saying the same thing over and over and over again. Sophia's indecision.....her constant way of saying how she's found love and how much he appeals to her....seriously.. ...more
I won this from the First Reads giveaway.

First of all, I must mention that the writing of this is quite stuffy, which is distracting. There's almost no use of contractions; it's always "I am," "It is," "We will," and "cannot." There is the occasional "it's," but rarely. Even the conversations between teens are contraction-less, which is unrealistic. Although, the conversations tended to seem unrealistic anyway, especially those between Sophia and Nate: major cheese factor, and I don't mean Havar

After her brother accidentally kills his human girlfriend in the throws of passion fear causes Sophia to be wary of allowing herself to get intimate with anyone. When the family move to a new town and she finds her soul mate in the form of Nathanial, a human boy at her school Sophia tries to ignore her feelings. On the night of the school formal an evening stroll ends in tragedy forcing Sophia to face her insecurities and deal with the thing she fears most.

I really wanted to enjoy this more

When first got a copy of this I thought it would just be about the usual vampires, I am glad to say I was wrong. Not only are there 2 types of vampires, but also witches.

Reading Immortal Beloved I sometimes forgot it was about vampires, as its not in your face, and it let me concentrate on the budding friendships between the characters, both friendly and romantically.

I loved the family dynamics of the characters, they may not be related to eac

I really liked this book, even if it did seem very similar in parts to twilight. The characters are likeable and you get to know them very well. Sophia has to be my favourite and by the end of the story I felt I knew her so well that I should have been going round to her place for coffee.

Some of the love scenes were a bit too soppy for my liking and did seem a little staged. The characters also seemed to fall in love a little too quickly, and I wished Charlotte had maybe lengthened the

This is a story of a boy and a girl! She has a secret, he is open minded!
He is mortal, she is a teenager turned vampire over a 100 years ago!
She and her family lives off of donated blood or animal blood and they have powers ~~ Twilight!
She meets a witch at school, only now coming into her powers ~~ Vampire Diaries TV series!
They have rogue vampires threatening their existance ~~ all the above with a touch of Sookie Stackhouse!
The witch friend ~~ one of two sisters! Combined their powers is great

This book is about Sophia, an eternal teenager that is forced to go back to high-school to keep an eye on her youngest sister, Danika. The reason? Danika is the newest addition in her family, a vampire family. This means that if she struggles to behave herself in high-school at least she won't be alone.

The only problem is that since her older brother, Caspian, killed his girlfriend in a terrible accident and then ran away ashamed of what he did, Sophia prefers to keep her distance with humans an

This is a really fantastic young adult love story by Charlotte Blackwell. I had heard previously about her writing thanks to my good friend, author Kathi Barton. One of my goodreads book clubs read it for October, and I ate it up immediately. I read this in less than 24 hours, it was just really good. I enjoyed the nods to other famous vampire stories of my generation--such as mentioning that sparkling is only for vampires in the movies.

"Immortal Embrace" by Charlotte Blackwell is a great effort by a new author that combines Vampires, witchcraft, suspense and romance - all for young adults. Sophia is a Vampire moving to a new school with her family after her brother accidentally killed his girlfriend by greedily drinking her blood. With some magic they are able to live amongst the mortals in the daylight and lead seemingly normal lives.
A teenager and condemned to an eternal life rather than blessed with it Sophia falls for Nat
I was very surprised by how much I actually enjoyed this book. It was good, but I do have a few complaints. The italicized thoughts were a little annoying. Some things were a little repetitious especially when it came to Sophia's inner thoughts. Sophia's emotions and thoughts could be condensed and shown more than told. A little bit of the dialogue seemed awkward and staged. The book is somewhat similar to Twilight, but it is hard to break out of that shell with a vampire book.

I would definately recommend this book to anyone who loves to read about friendship, vampires and paranormal. I definately think I found another series to add to my collection! The author does a fantastic job with all the characters. She paints a wonderful picture as she tells the story. I found it hard to put the book down. I kept telling to get some shut eye.....if I didn't have to go to work, then I could escape from reality just a little while longer. I definately will be getti ...more
LOVED this book!!!

It is a different take on the teen vampire romance. I love how the female is the vampire and the human is the male. I was rooting for Sophia and Nate right from the start and am so excited to see where their story goes from here. I can't wait to see what happens when they are faced with danger from the bad vampires.

Not only are the main charachters very compelling, but so are the rest of the people in the story. I am so interested to hear more of their stories. I also enjoyed
