So, to clarify some of this, I will list some of the fascinating topics covered in this novel. First, you will see some rather lengthy dialog on the benefits of organic food. It is tastier, after all. Then comes the religious conversation on whether drinking blood, in any form, is acceptable to God. Sarah will list all the old testament rules (which were debatably nullified in the new testament) about how you can't eat animals with blood still in them. Also, rabbits, pork, shellfish, birds of prey, and scavengers are also banned. Just to add to this already fun conversation, she points out how pigs and rabbits eat their own feces, yum! Don't forget shellfish are full of toxins. It all makes me want to run out to Captain D's for the seafood platter right now! That is, after I order the meat lovers pizza topped with all kinds of pork from Papa Johns.Read more ›
Sarah Bingham is a teacher while gardening one day she is attacked (well mowed down) by something, and when she goes to investigate she finds two men torturing another, she rescues him and the story begins, Roland is a immortal and battles corrupt vampires with other immortals, they too need blood to survive but dont harm to get it.
In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible--when it means forfeiting the world she's always known, and the life he would do anything to protect. I really enjoyed this and would recommend
Duvall has an easy flowing style of writing that is easy to slip into. The description carry enough depth without being overbearing and the backgrounds and plot are well thought out. I found the characters believable and their reactions to the arising situations plausible (something some other authors overlook in their rush to get on with their agenda). Yes there was a mention of several eco issues I don't necessarily stress over, but they were relevant to the authors plot and back story and were not rehashed overly throughout the book so I didn't feel continually preached at.
But moreover I enjoyed the tale. The book moved at a good pace with a nice blend of action and romance, and I was keen to get to the end and see how it all ended. I finished the book eager to pick up the next one in the series. I give it 4 stars as my favourite authors (such as charlaine Harris, laurell k Hamilton and donya Lynne) still pip this to the post, but this is definitely a worthwhile read.
