There are many directions you can go with vampire books these days, but this one will take you far off the beaten path. It heads into a direction no man, or vampire, has gone before. Many of the characters in this novel, whether human or not, are environmentally friendly and health conscious. Now, I'm not against such things in real life, but I didn't expect to find it in a paranormal romance. I like my blood suckers to be dark, dangerous, and generally uncaring (until the right woman comes along and brightens their otherwise depressingly long existence). To be fair, the author makes her "vampires" to be bad, but she also includes another blood sucking race called "immortals". Rather original, I must say, but I digress. These guys are supposed to be the defenders of humans and enemies of vampires. Therefore, they can go "green" and that is okay. This is in addition to the main human character, Sarah, who also follows these tenets heavily.

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.

It started so well then stalled with whole paragraphs of the benefits of organic food. After a bloody battle and near death the heroine sits discussing eggplant?! Shortly after that we have a whole paragraph, sorry, whole page, about 'unhealthy' food. (perhaps the author should write a cookery book or air her opinions on her web page) Now at this point I felt like I was being preached at and was begining to find the heroine annoying, not good. Get on with the story, it's losing its momentum and I will not be finishing this particular book. I read Alexander Ivy, Kresley Cole, Jess Haines and Gena Showalter all great authors in my opinion.

This is a MUST MUST MUST read!..Being a vampire junkie I thought I would give this book a whirl and I'm so glad I did. It has everything.. Battle scenes,suspense,Romance,steamy bits and funny bits. This engaged me from the off and had me caring for ALL the characters, not just the main two. The only downside ( if you can call it a downside ) is it kept me up till 4 am because I couldn't put it down! lol.. This book is modern and up to date and with the times.. It has a fresh approach to an old tale and I think can be enjoyed by both sexes. I can't wait for book two, due out, I think, this december. I would really love to see it go to film, I won't give anything away, just go read this book, you won't be disappointed!

I am a big fan of this kind of book, vampires, heros, hot men and clever sexy women, this has it all plus a good strong story, good characters and a good set of characters for other books( downloaded book 2 by chapter 5 of this one)
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

I was a bit hesitant when I started this book. Some of the reviews had complained about a preachy soap box airing of the authors views on eco issues. But I do love a good vampire romance, and the delineation between vampires and immortals seemed to be an interesting fresh take, so I decided to give it a go. And boy am I glad I did.
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.
