If you are a reader like me who’s obsessed with vampires and haven’t read this trilogy, my friend, I envy you very VERY much. 😁 Because unlike me, you now have the luxury to binge through all 3 books in this awesome trilogy and I had to impatiently wait between them. So yea, I envy you. 😏 That being said, I loved this final installment for this very enthralling and refreshing trilogy soooooo much. It was everything I hoped it would be. 💜

This is the final book in this trilogy and it’s a good one.

Andrew, Edmund and crew find the Elder. Edmund is now immortal and the journey to England continues. Edmund settles well into life as a vampire better than he does with life back in London. He’s not the pretty young man who left the country so many years ago. He’s now a grown man happy in his own skin.

A lot happens in this book and it’s so much more than it’s 127 pages would suggest.

I’ve really enjoyed this trilogy. I say trilogy but it

That was one glorious third and final installment of this series!!
It was exhausting because of the events. It was delicious because of the events and it was also emotional because of it.

Dear dear Edmund, what lies underneath the sweet eyes and dear smiles... something disproportionately, something huge.

The enormity and influence of Edmund given by the Elder is one of a kind.
Some abilities are just too much!

Between the heavy content I loved the light delicious popping in humor...

Escaping Mortality is the final episode in Sara Dobie Bauer’s captivating “The Escape Trilogy”. This series is a must for fans of vampire romances, but it’s also a beautifully written, exciting story line. One I’m recommending to everyone!

For me, the best part of this whole thing has been discovering the writing of Sara Dobie Bauer. Her lyrical prose paints such appealing scenes, and even the simplest phrases are vivid and descriptive. It’s easy to picture Andrew’s tropical island, the lush deba

Escaping Mortality finishes up Sara Dobie Bauer’s Escape Trilogy and I have really enjoyed this series. There has been a nice progression over the series between Andrew and Edmund, from the two men on a deserted island driven largely by their lust for one another, to men who have become true lovers and partners. There is a sweetness to their interaction, even as these are hard, dangerous men. We can really feel the love they have and the strong bond between them, ea

This is not a standalone, and neither is it really a trilogy. It is a single continuous story split into three (almost to a sentence) with no recaps. This frustrated me at the beginning of this particular book as it took me sometime to recall what occurred in the last and so was struggling to catch up to what was going on.

As in the first two books, the writing is impeccable. The story is okay, but as before, Bauer has managed to imbue it w

Again another fantastic instalment of the Escape Trilogy. I love these books so much. I read this in a few hours and again was totally hooked from the beginning. This book starts where the previous instalment ended and was full of intrigue from the offset.

I highly recommend this book series they will draw you in and leave you wanting more. Join Andrew and Edmund on the last part of their journey into immortality and follow them as they conquer the various trials and tribulations they encounter

Sara Dobie Bauer's vampires are a lot of fun.

In Book One of the Escape Trilogy - Escaping Exile - long suffering vampire, Andrew, finds a shipwrecked sailor washed ashore like a sea-tossed care package sent just for him. He quickly falls for the delectable and unpredictable human, and swears never to do him harm.

In Book Two, Escaping Solitude, Andrew falls more and more in love with the impulsive Edmund, agreeing to find an Elder vampire to change Edmund into an immortal being like himself.

This was brilliant. The perfect ending to the trilogy. A dark historical vampire tale but with a beautiful love story.
The writing is rich and vibrant.
The relationship between Edmund and Andrew is beautifully written but never forgets the dangerous nature of the creatures they are.
And the epilogue is perfect.

So so good. Sara Dobie Bauer has finished this series strong and as much as I hate to see it end, it was totally worth it.

This final book starts where the second book ended, with Edmund finding his elder and being half dead in the ocean. Nothing goes according to plan when Andrew is told he can't be the one to kill Edmund. Somehow, the elder has revived Edmund into immortality with a special ability, but it's one that is reliant on being in contact with him.

I was gifted my copy of this book, direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. But since I read and reviewed the other two parts, it's only fitting I review this one, too, don't you think??

This is the third and final book in the Escape trilogy and you rally MUST read the other two books first. You need to know how Edmund and Andrew found themselves in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, looking for an Elder!

Only Andrew has a say in these books, and THIS one, more than the other

And the finale of the Escape Trilogy lived up to all expectations! Andrew and Edmund found the Elder just in time to save Edmund’s life. But…and it’s a very big but…the Elder seems to have a connection to Edmund that Andrew doesn’t share. And it’s something that might make or break his relationship with Andrew. Oh no…just when I thought it was safe and my favorite vampire couple was going to be able to live happily ever after—literally—it appeared something was going to stop that from happening. ...more

Escaping Mortality is the final book in the Escape Trilogy. Andrew and Edmund’s search for an Elder was successful and Edmund is now a vampire. However the Elder shared more than just his immortality with Edmund and the ancient vampire insists on accompanying his new creation, much to Andrew’s displeasure. They journey to England to visit Edmund’s sick mother and the visit forces Edmund to confront the past that he tried to desperat

“My heart is his prisoner.”

Edmund and Andrew have found one… yes, they finally find an Elder. Both men are surprised when Brien, the Elder, asks for something in return for turning Edmund. Something promised to Andrew.

“You can have anything,” Edmund says.
Brien leans forward and sniffs, seeking Edmund’s scent. “I want to kill you.”

But that wasn’t all that Brien had in mind and thus starts the next adventure. Edmund is changing, things are happening, he’s not sure what to do and only Brien ha

I've loved this trilogy made up of novellas. Escaping Mortality was about 127 pages, but it wasn't lacking at all. Although these short stories could have been contained in one volume, each one adds another layer to their relationship. Escaping Exile is the beginning for Andrew and Edmund. Escaping Solitude is their journey together toward an uncertain future and Escaping Mortality is the perfect ending (or continuation) of that journey. Each one, except for Escaping Mortality, end

The cliffhanger at the end of book 2 in this trilogy, Escaping Solitude, left me frantic. Luckily, this installment picks up mere moments from where the previous left off and continues the story without missing a beat. This trilogy of novellas will make for a seamless full book once released in that format.

In her paranormal writing, Bauer excels at showing the ways in which monsters are people, too. The plot to this finale comes fu

If you were waiting to read Escaping Solitude until Escaping Mortality came out, well here it is! The ending we've been waiting for. Andrew and Edmund make their way from New Orleans to England in this final tale. Twists and turns are abound. I totally love Edmund and Andrew's devotion and love that they have for each other despite the trials they face. This was a great vampire story and I totally enjoyed it. The epilogue is fantastic and hits the spot. A part of it did make me a little sad, but ...more

The final book in the Escape Trilogy, and a very satisfying ending.

This book starts right after the end of Escaping Solitude, with the Elder boarding our heroes' ship. It feels a little slow at first, but just like the previous book a lot happens in this novella, so it doesn't take long for things to get interesting.

In this one Edmund has to deal with the changes withing himself after becoming a vampire, which is already difficult, but what truly makes him miserable is having to deal with the li

If you haven’t read the first two novellas of this series yet, you’re in luck because now you can binge all three! Escaping Mortality is the darkest and most eventful of the three novellas, and that’s saying something. Andrew and Edmund are reaching for forever in this final chapter with a couple of villains getting in their way. There is something deeply poetic about Edmund becoming immortal just in time to confront his life choices and the person he is.

This is the last part of Andrew and Edmund's love story and it might be my favorite.
This whole trilogy is my favorite m/m love story with vampires. It is fast paced, well written and has very likable MCs.
I felt like every book showed different type of battle. While the first book was about the beginning of Andrew and Edmund's relationship it was also about Andrew's fight to stay sane on his island, the second book w

When Sara Dobie Bauer approached me to review the final book in the Escape Trilogy, I was keen to see how the series would conclude. Escape Mortality was a fun little read that I got through in a single sitting. It picked up right from the events that ended book two, and it was great to see Edmund's journey continue as he adjusted to his new vampiric nature, and the jealousy that sprang up between Andrew and the Elder. All in all, it was a satisfying conclusion to the tale, with a good blend or ...more

I'm sad to see this series come to an end. It's been a lot of fun.

I feel like there were a lot of plot threads all coming together in this third installment. Maybe there's a little too much going on, because it felt like not as much time was devoted to atmosphere this time around. Still, at least all the plots were actually wrapped up; I hate unresolved plotlines, and I'm willing to sacrifice some ambiance if it means everything actually gets settled, lol.

I received a copy of Escaping Mortality by Sara Dobie Bauer via IndiGo Marketing & Design in exchange for an honest review. This was an excellent finish to the Escaping trilogy. While normally I dislike anachronisms in historical fiction, there was one of my favorite lines used to good effect and made me LOL in a book otherwise not funny. I also was impressed with a new method of creating a vampire, an important tweak on the sharing of blood in most other vampires stories. I did not anticipa ...more

Sara Dobie Bauer delivered a vampire love story like no other! Danger, mystery and travel. I binge read through all 3 books in less than 3 days. Who needs sleep, really?! I was captivated by the imperfect characters that weren’t afraid to be themselves and loved each other despite their flaws.

The story picks up from the second book where Edmund and Andrew were searching for an elder, so if you haven’t read the first books you definitely need to read those first.

Escaping Mortality takes us to London in the final instalment of this dark vampire tale. Edmund and Andrew’s relationship takes another turn, but the love between these two is evident, and I loved the epilogue - just perfect for them.

They are back. Edmund has been determined to become a vampire like his beloved Andrew.
Finally he gets what he wants plus a bit more.
Their journey takes them to England to deal with family.
Mischief occurs. Fights and drinking. All make for an excellent tale of a pirate and a vampire.
Well written and entertaining. The trilogy comes to an end.
Will look for more work in the future from this author.
Enjoyed all three books and so will you.
