All I can say is WOW!! After I read Eternal Captive, the third book in the MARK OF THE VAMPIRE Series, I thought "it just can't get any better than this"! Then I was extremely lucky and got to read Laura's upcoming release, Eternal Beast very early and Hot Damn!! Laura Wright has done it again and totally blew me away. This book is by far the EPIC book of the series and everything changes in the world of the Purebloods, Impures and Mutores.

In the enovella "Eternal Blood" Gray learned that his fa

This was a was a good book but not as good as the first three. The first books spent more time on the main couple. I didn't feel the connection between Dillon and Gray that I felt in the previous books. It did set things up nicely for the next book, though. In fact I think this was a gateway book for Dillon's muture (beast) brothers to have their own books.

I am looking forward to Erion's book due out next Spring. Yes I will still read the next one. Ms. Wright is a wonderful writer and this seri

I am torn about this one. I almost gave it four stars, but it seems a bit too much like the story arc of one of my favorite paranormal couples, and I had a hard time getting past that. I did like the relationship dynamic between Gray and Dillon. How her jaguar nature is drawn to him and sees him as her mate, but she continually fights it. I liked them both, although Dillon was annoying at times. The sexual language is too raunchy for my tastes, another drawback. Overall, a pretty good installmen ...more

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

The discovery of MARK OF THE VAMPIRE will always be a highlight for me. Eternal Hunger was the 1st book of LITERAL ADDICTION's 2nd Reading Event when we were still just a tiny Paranormal BookClub with 8 members. As time has progressed, so has the series, and so has my love for both it and Laura!

Immediately upon finishing this book my exact thoughts were: "Holy cow! Smokin' hot & action packed - an amazing read!" :)

Don't get me wrong i love this series and every book i have ever read by this author, but she is definitely the queen of heartbreaking and sanity stealing cliffhangers. I HIGHLY recommend you do NOT read this epilogue in this story if you want to maintain your sanity for the eight months we have to wait until the next installment in the series.

Other than that bit of angry ranting i will say this: this books is AWESOME. full of crazy unanticipated plot twists. Sexy and emotional

Ahhh the wonderful Laura Wright has done it again. She has made me fall in love with her Mark of the Vampire series all over again. I was very excited about Gray & Dillon's book and it really lived up to what I hoped and dreamed it would be. I will not give too much away, but........

From the very first time we meet these two back in Eternal Hunger (bk 1) I knew they were going to be a fun couple to read about. Both have been through hell and back in their lives. Each

I had high hopes for this book. The romance between Gray and Dillon has been teasing me for ages. Both main characters have a great tortured history, so I expected angst, passion, and a whopping dose of sexual tension. What I got was... a bit of disappointment.

As the story begins, Dillon is stuck in her beast form of a jaguar. She thinks the only way she will be able to return to her vampire form is to kill the senator behind the beating that prompted her change. Instead, Gray ends up killing hi

Eighty two pages in - OMG! So laughing over the scene between Lucian - the lovable a@$hole - and the mutore! Oh man the entire interaction had me cracking a smile!

Luca and Phane! Oh man it seems Luca found the ideal peeps to sharpen his verbal taunts on! And the mutore takes them with ease.

And it's grate to see Nicholas with Kate, Alexander with Sara, and Lucian with Bronwyn - along with their little baby girl! And the way Lucian took to fatherhood. Awww moment!!

Allow me to begin by saying that Laura Wright is one of my favorite authors! I LOVE the “Mark of the Vampire” series and have been eagerly awaiting Gray’s story from the very beginning! Though “Eternal Beast”, the fourth book in the series, can be read as a standalone book, I would definitely suggest you read the entire series from start to finish! It truly is a fantastic series! This includes the e-novella “Eternal Blood”, which I recommend you read before “Eternal Beast”. Again, just a suggest ...more
I recieved this from NetGalley for a honest review. I would like to thank the Penguin Group USA for the chance to read this amazing book. This has been a series I love to read and seem to fall more and more in love with. This 4th book in this series continues the greatness that if you have read the other books you come to grow and expect.

Gray has to be one of my favorite characters so far in this series. He is hot, loyal to those he cares about and very passionate about what he believes in and

I haven't enjoyed the last couple of stories in this series, and I believe it's because I don't enjoy Tavia Gilbert at the narrator. It made it difficult for me to concentrate on the story, so I will try reading the next book before abandoning this series.

Grey and Dillon's story. Again, unusual twists turns. The uprising is in full swing but you just don't know until the story moves forward how Grey and pals are going to win. I have to say again the quality of Laura Wright's writing really comes through as a lot of the subplots come together in this book, some are resolved but others still dangle. This novel is full of action and suspense that has you biting your nails. Dillon is a piece of confused as to what she wants and who she is . ...more

I LOVED this book and the others that come in the series! Its rare to find a book that has so much surprises around every corner, always keeping you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out what's next. This book is full of drama, suspense, love, humour and super sexy scenes that make you want a Paven or Impure of your own ;)

Most romances end with declarations of love and maybe family gatherings, that happens with this series too but then BAM!! something pops up at the last minute that make

I really wanted to give this 4.5 stars as it was the best one yet and WHAT AN ENDING!! Holy cliffhanger, Batman. Now I gotta wait til may '13?? Oh well, gives me something to look forward to. Loved the Gray/Dillon struggle and action. I am still not happy with certain derogatory words used in a romantic/sensual way (which is the primary reason for the lack of a fifth star). The characters in this book were more 'believable' and I'm not sure if that's because the writing got crisper of I've gotte ...more

Gray & Dillon's story. Gray is Sara's brother who was in a coma-like state after a fire. She tried to heal him. Dillon is the sister of Helo the water beast, Phane the hawk, Lycos the wolf. As usual, Laura Wright twisted and turned and surprised me with her world. I admit that at one point, I got confused but I re-read the part and realized I saw something the second time that I didn't see the first time. I love this world and the characters and I caught myself cheering for the mutores and t ...more

There are so many things I like about this novel and the series, but despite finding it hard to put down, and the exceptional development of Gray and Dillon as individual characters and as a couple, I found myself hesitating with my four star rating because so many aspects of the series mythology seem to shift and change. The powers of the villains swing from virtually omniscient and omnipotent to completely in the dark following no particular rules but the current need of the plot. The blood ca ...more

I just got this book yesterday downloaded to Kindle and I returned it to Kindle today for a refund. I have read all the books by Laura Wright and liked all of them but this one. For Me rape and beating a women nearly to death is not romantic. I think Laura might be taken her story line in a direction that I personally don't like.

I am loving this series! Each installment is strong as a stand alone, but the overall story development is engaging and filled with unique world building that keeps getting better.

This book was wonderful. I really enjoyed the depth of the characters, especially Dillon. Laura Wright is able to write complex characters that go far beyond the cookie-cutter PNR usual. I felt that Gray was an equally strong match for Dillon. I liked that he didn't put up with her shit, but also had realistic expecta

"Eternal Beast" by Laura Wright. Book 4 in the Mark of the Vampire series.

Even though it took me little bit to get into this book, I really liked it. I rated it 4 stars but really I'd give it 3.5 stars. The main characters of Dillon and Gray are characters we've seen in the previous books and in the novella "Eternal Blood."

Dillon is a mutore, a vampire that can shift into a beast. She has run away from her past and intends to keep that past behind her. She won't let anyone get close to her becau

Ever since the first novel in the Mark Of The Vampire series, Laura Wright has been able to draw me in to an exciting world populated with a multidimensional cast of characters. From the first moment Dillon and Gray made their entry in to this series they pulled at my heartstrings. Their turmoil, their life force, their attitude, it all appealed to me. Gray and Dillon have their premise told during the first four books and it contained a promise for their own story. While Eternal Beast can be re ...more

Eternal Beast is Laura’s 4th book in the Mark of the Vampire series… well 5th if you count an ebook novella! This series is about Vampires, Impures ( vampire human) and just recently we were even introduced to Vampire Shape Shifters, who are called Mutore. All are ruled by a strict and in some cases evil body of ancient vampires called The Order. This book is about Gray Donahue, an impure who only recently found out that he wasn’t fully human. He has become the leader of the Resistance and the ...more

I was so excited to finally be able to read Eternal Beast. Waited a while and it was worth it. Another amazing story by Ms. Wright. This one was centered around Gray and Dillon.

And what a story it was. Full of so much action, drama, humor and very romantic sizzling scenes. I have to say it was one of my favorites so far.

Reading about Dillon's past helped me understand why she's so closed off and untrusting of everyone. I can totally sympathize with her. What a horrible past. It's amazing she's b

MOTV features pureblood vampires, impures (1/2 human/1/2 vampire) and an assortment of terms found at the beginning of each storyline and novel.

Gray Donohue is on a mission, and nothing will stop him.

Even love.

Gray is an Impure, a half human, half vampire. In Eternal Blood he discovered that the Order is blood castrating Impures so they can't reproduce. The Order is made up of ten ancient vampires who rule over Purebloods and Impures. Gray's mission, and his team's, is to bring down the Order, stop the blood castrations, and gain rights for the Impures.

Dillon is a mutore, a Pureblood vampire and shape-shifter. A beast. Because of a rece
