I really enjoy Alexandra Ivy’s Guardians of Eternity vampire series, so when I was offered this book for review I jumped on it! It’s not the same series, in fact it’s an older book she re-vamped (pardon my vampire pun), but it’s set in the same world, and we see cross-over characters.

I did like the book, but I don’t feel it really hooked me the same way her other series did. My biggest complaint is that the hero is sent from behind the veil (where the vampires have gone to devote their lives to becoming more enlightened) to the human realm. One of their own is slaughtering humans like the days of old, and Gideon was chosen to stop him. This was my main complaint. Gideon feels he can reason with his serial killer. He’ll just explain how hunting humans is wrong and his buddy will go peacefully back behind the veil. Ummm. No. It’s not logical. Maybe at first, but then once he faced off with Tristan for the first time and realized what a monster he really was? I don’t know, for such an enlightened vampire, it didn’t make sense. I didn't like how Gideon kept wanting to avoid harming other vampires when the enemy is a psycho who's leaving him "gifts" in the form of mutilated women.

Now what I did like was the heroine. I really liked her. A lot. Her spirit, her secret, her personality, I feel she really made the book. Her gowns and the reason she made them herself was a nice touch. I also never guessed her past, so the mystery is really good.

This book was enjoyable and easy, you don’t have to be current in her other series to read and like this one. The Immortal Rogues series has something else going for it; it’s Historical Paranormal. My favorite thing about this book is that it’s Regency, it’s vampires, it’s a great mix!

A quick regency vampire romance. Enjoyable and easy.

Thanks Dee.

I did like it, it just wasn't fantastic. You could tell it was an earlier work. I did like seeing Nefri the vampiress who created the veil though :)

Dee Hhmm thanks Laura - it might be worth a go especially as it sort of linked to the Guardians Series as I would be interested in the 'beginning'.
