Born by blood to be Dhampir—a vampire hunter—Emma Andrews nearly lost her life and everyone she loves at Dulwich Manor. Now something evil is preying on students at a northern Lake District girls' school—the same school Emma's mother attended years ago. Drawn as much by the desire to learn more about her family's secrets as the possibility of vampires, Emma finds the schoo ...more

Emma Andrews, a vampire hunter and Dhampir, gets a message from Sebastian. He summons her back to England to help an all girls’ school where a vampire might be praying on innocents. She poses as a teacher at the school to discover what the Cyprian Queen might be. It is also the school her mother went to. With the help of friends Sebastian, Father Luke and Valerian Fox she sets out to discover what is happening.

The story starts while Emma is away from England learning all she can about vampires.
Immortal With a Kiss is the second in the Emma Andrews series. I would suggest reading the first book, Descent into Dust first because there are definitely things from that book that will tie in with this one - though this can be read without having read the first. As far as the book itself - I thought it was more "okay" than really great. It was an easy read.

The Book:

The main plot of this book was focused around the Cyprian Queen, and the evil preying on students at a prestigious girls school.

Gasp! Three stars from Harriet!
I'll admit that I pretty much grabbed this one because I thought the cover was pretty.

Of course, I didn't realize that this was the second book in a series until I looked it up on Goodreads, but the story did a good enough job of explaining roughly what went on in the first book to keep me from being horrifically lost throughout.

Immortal with a Kiss was actually pretty good - better than I went in expecting it to be, based on my reasoning behind picking it up and the fact that it's a vampire boo

This second volume in the series was much better than the first. My chief complaint about the first novel, Descent into Dust, was that the heroine, Emma Andrews, was frequently inactive, frozen by free, and complaining about her inability to act. In Immortal with a Kiss, for at least half of the book she has no choice but to act because she doesn't have the other members of her vampire-hunting group as back-up. She handles herself fairly well as she investigates strange goings-on at a girls scho ...more

Immortal With a Kiss.
Second book in the 'Emma Andrews' series written by psychologist Jacqueline Lepore.

I was excited to read this book, after reading 'Descent Into Dust' only a few weeks ago. Luckily, as this second book came out earlier this year, I wasn't stuck waiting for a release to come out!

This continues the first books story of Emma Andrews and her coming into her role as a Dhampir, or child of half vampire, half human blood.

She has traveled across the world and spent several months
I absolutely adore this series and loved how Emma's journey developed in Immortal with a Kiss.

Once again Ms. Lepore's writing style takes center stage; Immortal with a Kiss was just as atmospheric as Descent into Dusk, but slightly less dark. Emma grew stronger and more secure with her abilities, but she also retained a bit of her vulnerability and delicacy. Meanwhile my favorite cast of characters, Sebastian, Father Luke, and Valarian, all had room to come back and gain depth as well.

I received my copy of Immortal With a Kiss by Jacqueline Lepore, through GoodReads FirstReads, and I really enjoyed it. There are a lot of references to the first book, Descent Into Dust, which I haven't read yet so I felt I was missing something having had no knowledge that this was a sequel until I read it on the cover, but it didn't take anything away from the actual story. I felt that the book as a whole was a beautifully dark Gothic tale with a mystery surrounding deaths and strange behavio ...more
Immortal with a Kiss gave me the same action packed intensity that made me love the first one but with a little more romance and that is a good thing. I adore this book just as well as the first and as always the mysteries kept me captivated until the very end. It was nice to see previous supporting characters develop more as well as new ones introduced. You can practically feel the emotions and high tensions jump off the pages! The plot had you focused on a separate mystery yet kept the overall ...more
I won this book on Goodreads giveaways and I am so glad...I loved it! I had no idea what to expect, because I haven't read the first book, but I was pleasantly surprised by the great story. These are not shiny vampires...these are nasty evil vampires. I like vampire stories, so I was worried I might not this if I didn't like the vampires...not a problem. I really liked all the main characters....I really liked Emma...a Dhamphir-a vampire hunter...her two friends..Father Luke and Sebastian and he ...more
3.5 stars! I didn't like this one *quite* as much as I did "Descent into Dust" and I gave that one 4 stars, so only 3.5 stars for "Immortal with a Kiss".

The story started off well enough, but soon lost its momentum and didn't get it back until around page 150. After that it was really good, though. The main characters are great --- Emma, Valerian, Sebastian, Father Luke ... I really liked them all as much as I did in the first book. So the only thing that bothered me, really, was that the story
not bad - the second in the series. Emma is still an interesting vampire hunter and her support group and fellow hunters are also worth the effort. It got a bit...worrisome for a moment as the vampire this time was playing with girls using sexual passion and I almost bailed because I thought 'oh my god not another anita blake disaster -good stories turned into boring boring boring soft core porn -' but no the author did not go there. Will look for third one.

I want to thank goodreads and the author / publisher for the copy of this book I won on this site. I didn't realize it was the second in the series until I received the copy but was pleasantly surprised! I got the first in the series from my library and read through it very quickly!! I throughly enjoyed both of the first two books and found myself engrossed into the world of Emma Andrews! When is the next one coming out!?!
I'm glad I stuck with this series. I enjoyed this book more than Descent Into Dust because the characters are more well developed: I felt more for Emma, found Sebastian witty and caring, and I appreciated Father Luke's backstory.
The larger storyline that was introduced seems rife with all sorts of possiblities for great drama, so I am looking forward to reading more if and when future books are released.

As much as I enjoyed this book, I still liked the first in the series better. I loved that all the characters reunited for another mission. I still loved that Emma is a vampire slayer. Valerian is a great character as always, his interactions with Emma are just amazing. The only thing I didn’t like about this book was the ending. It felt unfinished as if there is going to be another book-which would be awesome!

While the first few pages were a little slow, the rest of the book kept me going. While vampires are not my normal reading, this one had me smiling at many points throughout. I would recommend this to anyone that wanted a good read. Like I said, first few pages were a bit slow going and thought about putting it aside, but I am glad that I kept going :)
Always a fan of new interpretations of folklore and myth, I came to the Emma Andrews series expecting an insubstantial read. But Lepore, by expanding on the classic lines of vampire myth, has laid out something of a treat. I look forward to where she takes her vampire hunter (and friends) from here.

I did t expect to like this, but I really did. Was like a period gothic romance, but with Vampires instead of romance. Yes, that sounds odd, but it works. Characters were interesting, and had good development and strong non-vampire-hunting subplots as well.
The first book was a little slower, but I was really pleased with how this book hit the ground running. The evolution of the major characters and the book's mythology was excellent. This will be a definite keeper on my shelf!
Fun read of a lady vampire hunter, who herself is half vampire. More of a mystery, and less trashy than I thought. There is a romance, but not the highlight of the book. I would definitely read the next installment.
Entertaining. No sparkly vampires, the vampires Lepore creates are soulless monsters, which is very refreshing. She is very cognizant of her mythology and her characters are very entertaining.
I really liked this book. I won it in one of the giveaways and boy am I glad that I did! A fantastic read that I highly recommend.
