Lysander – Male Vampire – Approximately 2000 years old.
Alyssa – Female Vampire
Santino – Male Vampire/Hunter.


Alyssa the newly turned vampire is back in a sequel to Immortalis: ?. This time around it begins with her having nightmares that a former adversary is still alive and is back. This will take her and her vampire clan through the city of Las Vegas in their search for an evil priest and an attempt to stop his nefarious plans.


I’m not ususally the paranormal fantasy type. I tended to like this book though. It kept a nice pace through the story, the story proceeeded in a logical manner, and within just a while, I found myself like these characters.

There were some tense scenes involving Alyssa’s friend and some escapes, where you aren’t sure if all those you know are going to get out of things. There was some romance, and a little action. If I had any problem with this book, it would be the lack of action. Of course, that’s coming from a male perspective.

To me if there were a group of 6 or so vampires going up against an evil army, there should be tons of action. It felt a little anticlimatic to me. While there was a lot of action with Alyssa, most of the action with the others was just kind of ignored.

Overall though, for those into the paranormal fantasy type novels, I think you’d probably find this book enjoyable. I liked it, but not sure that it’s my type of book, nor am I sure that I can give do justice to reviewing it, knowing that it’ s not something I have a lot to compare to.

About the Author:

The youngest of four children, Katie has always had a desire to entertain. Since, early childhood, she’s dreamed fantastical characters and scribbled them into pages of various journals and notebooks. Taking an interest in vampires, she devoured every book, featuring those blood sucking creatures, in any genre she could find.

It was only natural that a love of reading vampire stories, turned into a love to write them.

Katie is also a Las Vegas native, having grown up in the famed City of Sin. She loves to feature it as a recurring setting for many of her stories.
