Reviewed for queuemyreview.com; book release Sep08

In 2007, there was a four book series called “Immortals” written by three popular authors, Jennifer Ashley, Robin Popp, and Joy Nash. The series was about five brothers, children of a mortal father and different goddesses. Their destiny was to preserve the balance between life magic and death magic, but as the years passed humankind forgot about them and they each went their separate ways. I enjoyed reading the series, but was always bothered tha

Of all the books in the series I've read so far, this is the best. Tain is compelling and haunted; Samantha is tough but willing to love. The side characters (excluding the other Immortals and their wives) are entertaining and add a depth to this novel that the others lacked. Considering the other novels, I wasn't expecting this one to grab my attention so thoroughly, but it caught and held it all the way to the end!

I have read all the books in this series & I knew I'd love this one the most (or I thought), because it was about Tain. He is tortured, he is powerful, he is broken and he is sexy.. There are a lot of layers to him & I knew Sam would be what he needed.
I knew all of this.. I knew the story would be painful.. and yet, I still hated the things he had to go through AGAIN!! and I definitely didn't like what path he was forced to walk again.
At the end of the book I didn't feel happiness for T

I love a book that makes me sigh with girly love and cry, my heart wrenching with an inability to comfort. Wanting more than anything to wrap my arms around a character and hug them, to say, "I know it hurts now but it will be ok!" Then to watch happily as it all rolls into place and actually is ok! :-)

Tain is such an enigma. Violent and out of control one moment, penitent and begging for help the next. I wanted to hate him! There were times I really did hate him. Yet through it all I had hope t

What an interesting look through the veil!

Jennifer Ashley, Robin Popp and Joy Nash have written a series that puts a satisfying spin on the whole witchcraft/demon/vampire end of the world genre. Using the five immortal brothers to battle evil is genius! The storylines are compelling and well written. Each author put her own spin in her story, yet each book blends into the other. Job well done ladies!

Man I have been waiting to read Tains book. I don't want to say to much, but to get to this point after all that he has endured made me nervous and excited to start this book. So this book takes place a year and half after the last book. Poor guy! I think that Samantha was perfect for him . I had hope that it would be about all him healing and love . I know sappy but he deserves it. No more pain. Damn it just when I thought no more pain he gets more. WTH? I cant even say why that upset me w/out ...more

This a re-read for me. This story is the best out of the series. I read Adrian and Hunter's story, but they were not as good. I liked the suspense and the plot, it kept me guessing till the end. When Sam and Tain came together at the end, I loved it!

Although I love Jennifer Ashley I was slightly disappointed in this last book of the series. Maybe because the main character Tain was too needy and the plot at times seemed to float around in different directions.

I gave it two stars because I was mislead by the cover description. The first two lines state: "He is going to take her. And it won't be gentle." Silly of me to think that the main man will be Alpha who knows what he wants and will get it by any means. It was quite the opposite. There was a lot of "I want her, but must stay away, so I will act like a jerk." I was in the mood for chocolate but got vanilla instead!
Perhaps if I wouldn't have been so persnickety, I may have rated it much higher. The

Tain has spent the last year recovering from the madness he incurred during 700 years of torture and captivity to an Old One. Running across half-demon cop Samantha may prove dangerous, but he needs her help to stop a demon serial killer.

A dark but enthralling read, dealing with the aftermath of Tain's torture, which does not resolve quickly. The relationship between Sam and Tain is difficult to decipher, and doesn't progress like past Immortals. Like others, though, it's full of dark and sinist

Another good book in this multi-author series. The storyline is still very intriguing even though the BIG STORY of the first 4 books is over. It ends up that there are plenty of other Old Ones down in the demon world looking to make their mark on the world. So, every side character that you read about in the first series is fixing to get their own story to be the main character in, starting with the Mighty Tain himself. Otherwise, it's the same type of Paranormal Romance as the previous 4 books.
Gypsie Holley
How romantic! I loved this. I hardly ever come across a novel these days when you have a chance to read about an actual proposal of marriage, the exchange of rings and then great sex afterwards. I was like, aaaawwww.... I couldn't wait to read about Tain. I loved Samantha and they were perfect for each other. I was not disappointed at all.
