I received a copy of this book from World Castle Publishing in return for an honest review.

This book is quite possibly the worst that i have read this whole year.
Rating- 0.5 stars.

I hate starting reviews like this, i really do. However, this book had me pulling my hair out in irritation.
Therefore, for the sake of honesty, I feel compelled to explain all my feelings, including why i disliked this book with a intensity of a thousand suns.

Immortal Kiss is a romantic paranormal fantasy written by Laura Daleo. Since she was very young, Beth has had a secret friend who she never really got to see. He came to see her as a mist that would sometimes assume the general shape of a man. On her seventeenth birthday, he covered her bed with rose petals, and Beth could not help but rea

This book gave me a headache. Here's the thing, I knew romance was a prominent part of this book. Despite very few of my favorite books fitting squarely into the romance genre (with Sherrilynn Kenyon being the only modern romance author to appeal to me at all, and only having read some of her stuff, even then), so many of my favorites do contain some romantic plot points, so I'll never write off an awesome sounding just plot just because characters get a bit lovey-dovey. I wish I had, though.

Prepare yourself for the secret world of the vampire gods, their thirst for blood and the laws created to prevent the extinction of mankind. Unknown to humans, there are things that are deadly, that stay in the shadows and Laura Daleo’s Immortal Kiss takes us into the world of vampires, love, lies and what it means to be the next human sacrifice that saves the world.

Beth has always felt she was being watched, but she took comfort from the strange mist that she knew meant her no harm. Love emanat

When I started reading this I wasn't very sure of what was going on. We know there's this girl who's been living her whole life with some kind of mist who comes visit her in her room. Then she spends years dating her childhood friend and, suddenly, the guy who's supposed to be the mist shows himself and asks her to move in with him immediately. And she says yes.

Not only does she say yes, but

Vampires are not my thing. I never even read Twilight. Nope. Or Vampire Academy. So this review comes to you from a vampire inexpert, who, in the spirit of Halloween, decided to step out of her comfort zone and give this a try.

As soon as I read the prologue, I was convinced I'd made the right decision. Still, I am not a fan of blood so certain things made me a tad queasy -like Phillippe's bodily fluids being ALL blood, for example. But putting that aside because well, he's a vampire (duh, what

Immortal Kiss, by Laura Daleo, is about how years ago there were ten very powerful vampire gods who were hungry for blood and how their desire for blood almost caused the human race to vanish. As a result, the vampire gods chose twelve very smart, individuals and transformed them into vampires, but also made them write laws and rules that the ten vampire gods had to live by. One of these rules is the blood lottery for the human race. In this blood lottery, a person is chosen to be given up to on ...more

This is a paranormal read which I am utterly in love with! The story I crisp and clear with very descriptive language which leaves you wanting more and more. This is the first book and what a first book it is. It is a stunning piece of writing which I feel honoured to have been given the chance to read as an ARC.

OMG! This was such an awesome book!!! The world that Ms. Daleo created with Beth and Philippe is so amazing. There are some completely unexpected twists involved as well. As I went on this journey, I felt so many emotions it wasn't even funny! I cried, laughed, cringed, got angry, and was happy. I love it when books can take me through the gamut of emotions. The bad thing about that though....the book ends eventually. But that is another gr

When I read the title i hoped it wouldn't be anything like twilight series. Surprisingly it was not it was so much more. I'm not much of a paranormal romances reader but, since it's almost Halloween I said why not.

I thoroughly enjoyed Immortal Kiss. The story flowed from the pages and I read it in a day. I can't wait for the sequel!. The characters could have used a bit more developing, but I grew to like them anyway, even Caleb
I liked the way the Egyptian gods were written into the book and would like to see more of them in the next book. It had a few surprises and twists, always nice to see. I would definitely recommend this book, great read!

Incredible debut! I was drawn into the story and characters right away. The author does a great job of setting us up for the next book. Philippe and Beth make this book come to life. Plenty of action and sizzle to keep me turning the pages. Little surprises along the way kept me intrigued. Lately, I've been in a bit of a reading slump when it comes to good paranormal romances. If this is the author's first book, then I think we can expect great things for future novels.

This was a Goodreads win...
My fave type of book is the dark fantasy/supernatural type... And this fits the bill!
I am thankful that I won this book, and I 100% want to read the next installment... I want to see what happens with Beth, Amon and Phillippe... To share love between three people can get complicated, and this did.

Looking forward to the next book!

The book starts off slow but by the end you are left wanting more. This book has vampires and romance twisted together with some Egyptian gods. A love of one woman who must decide were her heart really lies.

I hope the next book will tell us more of the gods as well as how a love divided can work. Also hope to see Caleb get hit by love, just to put him in his place.

Review by Author Murry

While I raided the kitchen, Philippe prowled the streets in search of human blood... Beth's love has no boundaries, LOL. A human, she was in love with a vampire.

His mist was around all her life. Or was it? His and her transfers into something they allow to happen because of an infatuation is a story of a romance that is deadly.

Of course, as a human, I laughed at the vampire and human relationship they had, but the writing was well thought out and en

I adored this book! I just love vampire novels, they are my guilty pleasure! Within the pages of Immortal Kiss you will find love, mystery, deceit and how vampires came to be! Immortal Kiss is very Anne Rice-ish, only less gruesome, softer somehow. The way in which Laura Daleo spun her version of Vampire Mythology was wonderfully refreshing and completely original!

This is an intriguing mix of paranormal, mythology, mystery and romance, the first book in a new series.

This is one of those stories where it would be much too easy to write a review which inadvertently contains spoilers so I’m going to try to avoid naming names or giving too much information regarding the plot – I don’t want to spoil it for anyone else! As a child, Beth was visited by a mist which gave her love, left presents and actually could be seen by others, so wasn’t a figment of an overa

I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The author has a talent for description and the world she has created is vivid in detail. I loved the concept of the vampire gods (The Ten) and the council that they created to keep them in check. We only meet them briefly toward the end of the book but I'm sure they will have a larger role in the next installment.

Beth is overly naive which did put me off a bit. She gave up her whole life-her home, her job

Behind this story is a history that is centuries old - powerful vampire gods were on the earth and they had no control over their lust for blood so in order to save mankind (who they needed to provide blood to them). However they recognised the weakness in their existence and so they selected 12 humans to transform with their blood and every fifth generation they would provide a person to drain dry in a form of "Blood Lottery". This has continued though the years and is still in operation today. ...more

All of her life, Beth has formed an attachment to a sentient mist which has entered her bedroom leaving notes and small tokens. Her best friend, Danny, knows of her unusual link to the phantom but has always held out hope of claiming Beth for himself. The author has created a unique world of gods and vampires and Beth finds herself thrust into the center of controversy. Well-written with a mix of love, obsession, and intrigue.

I got this book free through goodreads first reads. This book is pretty interesting. I always have enjoyed the vampire romance genre. I would agree that the mist would be a bit confusing, if the back cover didn't clue you in that this was a vampire book. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Wow what can I say about this that’s not already been said? I loved this from the first page to the last and couldn’t put it down until I had finished it.

The story starts with a 17 year old Beth and her forever friend Danny. Danny is in love with Beth but knows she loves the mist. Beth makes no secret that the mist already has her heart and she can not let it go.

Immortal Kiss by Laura Daleo is a good start to a series, this being the first book. The main characters in this book are Beth, who is human and Philippe who is an immortal, and this book has a good cast of minor characters which keep it all interesting and moving at a good pace. Caleb, another character was Philip's maker, and you can feel the affection he has for Philippe through the story. Philippe is a good person and although he is vampire, has retained a good deal of his humanity. Another ...more
