Immortal Ever After is the 18th book in Lynsay Sands’ insanely popular Argeneau series, and a fun, exciting, sexy story! I’ve read more than my fair share of the paranormal romance genre, most especially vampires. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about these tormented souls that draw me in and keep me coming back for more. It’s not often that I fall in love during my first read of a series, but I fell - and fell hard - for the Argeneau world. This is my first taste of Lynsay Sands’ writing and I was very pleased! This world she’s created is exciting, and the characters are intriguing, compelling, and yeah.... very sexy.

I usually hate coming into a series mid-way because I either end up lost or cringing at the information dump we have to endure. Thankfully, I was neither lost nor cringing because Ms. Sands did a great job of giving us the Argeneau world background without making me feel like I was reading a text book. The story is well written and through dialog between characters – old and new – she imparts everything new readers need to know to feel like we’re part of the story, not just reading about it.

Anders is such a great guy! I can see why everyone loves him, and anyone who’s been anxiously awaiting his story will be very happy! He’s so much fun… open but shy, strong but vulnerable, and not just sexy but super sexy! He’s the kind of vampire I want for my very own!

Valerie is a great heroine. What she’s endured would break most women, but not her. Even though everything she ever thought she knew about the world around her has been turned upside down, she holds it together and does what she has to to survive.

The bottom line: In case you didn’t get it, I really enjoyed this book, and while it was my first experience with Ms. Sands’ Argeneau series, it most certainly will not be my last!

My thanks to Avon Books for providing me with a copy of this story I exchange for an honest review.

The story started out great but quickly got dull. The writing was very elementary and she would break down every minute event like getting water or changing clothes. I could skip full paragraphs because there was so much fluff. Her overuse of the word wryly was extremely annoying since most of the time there was nothing really wry about the character was saying. And the whole story was just simple. There was very little action after she escaped and her relationship with anders had no struggle from start to finish. After being kidnapped by a vampire i would have expected her to be a bit more resistant to anders which would have added some intruig to the story but she barely cared. Overall the story just didnt click.

    This was a very well written story and the character development

    This was a very well written story and the character development was wonferfully done. Even though I have not read the other books of this series I was still able to learn back history on them to understand their role in this part of the series. From a readers stand point I have to say that this storyline has been done way to many times...A mortal is kidnapped and is saved buy the same creature that had taken her/him and then finds out about them and the fact they were ment to be together. Together they take down the bad guy while one stuggles on their decision to be with the immortal or walk away, in the end they all choose the same path and stay with the one Fates or whatever you want to call it chose for them.

    As much as I would like to give a better rating, some things wer

    As much as I would like to give a better rating, some things were off-putting. First, the use of dry and wry. Many things said were said wryly or dryly. A dry tone might have also been mentioned. The overuse of these words stood out enough to annoy. In a search for them in "Under a Vampire Moon," I noticed they came up a number of times. I just hope they aren't used as frequently.

    Another item has to do with an injury. Unless I have the order wrong, I believe an injury pulls when Valerie tries to play fetch with her dog. After that, she swims in the pool. Since swimming would pull just as much, or even more, than throwing in a game of fetch, the inconsistency gave me pause and threw me out of the story. There are a few similar instances, but they are explained later--such as swimming when an injury is to be kept dry. Some explanations felt forced or like an afterthought to make what Valerie had done fit.
