Note: I received the e-book free from the author, Katie Salidas. The review posted below is based on my personal thoughts while reading the book.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
So far the best book in the Immortalis series! Loved the plot of the story, of course because the author wove stories based on Greek mythology. I really enjoyed reading this book though I have to mention one disappointment - lack of romance between Lysander and Alyssa. Lysander's so serious in this book, but oh well, so glad the author added some more "wow" characters this time - more vampires and weres - oh I love werewolves! The clan met with some of the local werepack when they visited Lysander's house in Boston to retrieve his original writings. And there they met the local weres including the super hot Aiden, the second of the werepack - Fallon's so lucky to have him!
I know I mentioned before in book 1 that a series should have OMG moments. This book has a lot of OMG moments. I was heartbroken when a character died and was even more heartbroken when this book ended - leaving us with a cliffhanger! According to the author, one more character will die in book 4... sad... sad... sad...
All in all, it was a great book, a great series, highly recommended for vampire-romance lovers out there.
About the book:
Book 3 in the Immortalis Vampire Series.
After a few months as a vampire, Alyssa thought she'd learned all she needed to know about the supernatural world. But her confidence is shattered by the delivery of a mysterious package - a Pandora's Box.
Seemingly innocuous, the box is in reality an ancient prison, generated by a magic more powerful than anyone in her clan has ever known. But what manner of evil could need such force to contain it?
When the box is opened, the sinister creature within is released, and only supernatural blood will satiate its thirst. The clan soon learns how it feels when the hunter becomes the hunted.
Powerless against the ancient evil, the clan flees Las Vegas for Boston, with only a slim hope for salvation. Could Lysander's old journals hold the key? And what if they don't?
And how welcome will they be in a city run by a whole different kind of supernatural being?
