March 20, 2017 Review 0

IMMORTAL UNCHAINED is the twenty-fifth book in the Argeneau series, and I’m sad to say it is the last one I will read. It wasn’t so much that it was bad, but it was so similar to so many other things that have happened in previous books that I felt I was reading the same passages over and over again. Although the 23rd book had me excited for the new direction the series was taking, when we got there, it wasn’t worth it.

Early Review: Immortal Nights (Argeneau #24), by Lynsay Sands

September 19, 2016 Review 0

This series was in serious need of a infusion of plot and villain, and it really seems like we are headed that way. Taking place almost exactly at the same time as the previous book, IMMORTAL NIGHTS tells the story of the second Nolte twin, Tomassino, the other tall, dark and beefy Italian heartthrob. It also introduces another human woman who ends up stealing the show.

Abigail was a fun character. She’s a bit run down, when we first meet her, but she’s extremely clever, and is only one year away from finishing her medical degree. She’s cared for her mother until her death, and that has drained all her energy and all her savings. When the opportunity for a free vacation comes up, she jumps at the opportunity to accompany her childhood friend down to South America. She just didn’t count on it being quite the adventure it was.

Review: Runaway Vampire (Argeneau #23), by Lynsay Sands

Review: Runaway Vampire (Argeneau #23), by Lynsay Sands

June 23, 2016 Review 1

Some of the best stories start with a bang, and RUNAWAY VAMPIRE starts with our main character getting run over by an RV, whilst naked, whilst running away from his captives who still have his twin brother. BANG! I thought the last few books in the Argenau series lacked action, but I was pleasantly surprised with this book, adoring the characters and storyline as well.

Dante Notte and his twin Tomasso have been featured in quite a few of the books before, acting as bodyguards, teaching new vampires how to feed, and punching a few bad guys in the face. I was pleased that their stories happened separately though, since it gives more room for the individual romances to develop.

Review: About A Vampire (Argeneau Vampires #22) by Lynsay Sands

October 2, 2015 Review 0

ABOUT A VAMPIRE was a strange book with many fun scenes and characters, but there was definitely something missing: an antagonist. A book without a bad guy or even an big dramatic ending sequence feels a bit like a roller coaster that ends at the top of the ride.

This is all a shame, because the opening chapter was killer. It’s funny, introduces the characters beautifully and has just enough foreshadowing to make you smile when things inevitably hit the fan.

Review: Immortal Ever After (Argeneau #18) by Lynsay Sands

February 23, 2013 Review 2

Picking up IMMORTAL EVER AFTER, the eighteenth Argeneau book, and not having read any previous installments, I was concerned that I would be lost, or missing significant backstory. Luckily, I got a fun story with some great main characters and interesting supporting characters, that didn’t involve too much catching up for me to understand.

Early Review: The Reluctant Vampire by Lynsay Sands

Early Review: The Reluctant Vampire by Lynsay Sands

May 22, 2011 Review 3

Jumping into an established series with book 15 can risky, but THE RELUCTANT VAMPIRE amply rewarded my daring. Sands interweaves details about the Argeneau vampires and this story’s main love interests without ever sacrificing the forward momentum of the narrative, and I was caught up in the story from page one. Drina and Harper’s romance was very effective as a stand alone (hot, hot, hot!), and while there were some details about the plot that went over my head, that just further motivates me to go back and enjoy the previous books in the series.
