Overview

What if we knew how to live forever? Is any cost too great?

Ava Brandt has been plagued with indecision her entire life; her direction influenced by the people around her, not her heart. When a chance encounter with a stranger challenges everything she thought she remembered from her frightening past, she must confront hidden memories to survive.

Ben Pearson, descendent of a famous physician, is living proof of his ancestor's miraculous discovery two hundred years ago. Through a combination of blood transfusions from unsuspecting donors, he uncovered his own fountain of youth. As an unwilling convert, Ben continues to fight for those who are dying; their murderers content to kill innocents to prolong their own lives, no matter the human cost.

Finally accepting the truth of her past and the dreams that have plagued her, Ava comes face to face with her fears. But just as she comes to terms with this new reality and new feelings for her ageless rescuer, she finds herself in the middle of a battle that has raged and claimed untold young lives for centuries.

Unlike the books that are plaguing many shelves, this book is one to bring in a breath of fresh air. The story line was so unlike the stories that are top sellers. I enjoyed the mix of science within real life situations and made me feel like I was in the book. HK is a wonderful writer who is very riveting.

a great story that seemlessly blends a little science fiction with an excellent action-adventure story. A fabulous read!!

I really don't like to fly but when the pilot said we were going to land, I really wasn't ready. I wanted to see how it ended. What happens? There was such a sense of urgency.I really loved this book and think the sequel should come soon.

Plot holes, contradictory sentences, many grammar mistakes, and so many pointless filler chapters. I loved HK's Empath series; that I would definitely recommend, but this book was horrible. The grammar mistakes had me re-reading sentences over and over to understand what she was getting at. The filler chapters were pointless. They didn't have anything to do with the plot, nor did they add anything to the storyline as far as chemistry for the main characters go. I understand there's going to be a sequel to this book, but I don't understand the point. The book wrapped up tightly, not really leaving the reader with questions of the future. The heroine of the book annoyed me. Ava was so whiny and was the biggest coward. She acted like a child instead of an adult. If she was real I would have slapped her. The things she said and did throughout the book were ridiculous. I would have liked to see a stronger female character who didn't constantly concern herself with what her mother thought as she clung to the hero for protection. I wouldn't recommend this book, however I would recommend HK's Empath series. Although the book has grammar mistakes as well, it's an excellent read that you wouldn't want to put down.

Excellent read. Unique in the idea that the "fountain of youth" could transpire from something so simple. It challenges your stance on the morality of what is right and wrong, then questions you on how far you'd go. Can't wait for the sequel... there is going to be a sequel right?

A thrilling read that flowed right off the pages and kept me hooked from the get go. I was expecting something a little different, but I was thoroughly intrigued by the “paranormal” element of this story and its immortal beings. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and learning more about their condition. Ava and Ben’s relationship was interesting, and I was excited to see how it would develop, especially after the truth about Ava’s childhood was revealed. This book was well paced, giving the reader enough time to get to know the characters before it became a race against evil, as the doctor and his goons played a game of cat and mouse with Ava and Ben. With plenty of exciting twists and turns that drew me in, I could not put this book down. It was a fascinating read with a uniqueness that was enthralling.

This is a nice read for those fans of series such as Twilight, but don't cover your neck because here, vampires are not an issue. There is a villain, though, one who deserves fear and respect. Ava is a fairly normal girl except for her strange dreams and the reality they might play in her past. I enjoyed the refreshing beginning, a girl just out of school, working with her aunt in a cozy antique store. The scenes throughout the book pulled in, letting the world around evolve as if it were really there. The characters are easy to like. Ava comes across as a level-headed, bit naive, but ready to do what has to be done kind of girl. There are moments, where she hits very normal -- I'd say almost bland-- but it's exactly this which gives her a sense of reality often forgotten in books. The hero, Ben, doesn't roar across the screen with all perfect hero tendencies right away and takes a little getting use to, but as the plot unfolds, his golden character shines and the dream for a great couple is born. And Ben's friend....well, let's just say that  guy hits all perfect qualities from beginning on, leaving readers glad he isn't the one to fall for Ava (and still available...) There's a lot of tension, and a wonderful secret past, which lay the scene for a dark, evil worth loathing. Of course, there's lots of twists and I'd love to hit on those, but my lips are sealed when it comes to releasing spoilers. My biggest complaint about this book (and reason that I was hesitating even at 4 stars), is the editing and a few weaker writing areas. With the proper care, these issues could have been cleaned up, but I'm guessing non-grammar nerds probably won't be too bothered and will easily get lost in the exciting plot. Summed up, this is an enjoyable read for all those suspense and paranormal fans who enjoy a little romance mixed in.  I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I received a digital arc of this book from GHBT in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All are my own opinion and is not compensated by any individual, organization, or company. This might contain spoilers. This is a very suspenseful, exciting and thrilling read. I went up to sign for it because I was curious what this is about. So, I really did not know what to expect from it. I never expected that it will be good. I really like how I feel connected to the character, especially, our Ava. She’s a little ‘meh’ at times but surprisingly, I like her the most. It’s so good also how the author managed to introduce each or her characters vividly. I liked the very good transitions and development of character relationship. It’s good also that I felt a lot of ‘feels’ when reading this book. It’s definitely not a sexy read, but the book has a characteristic of one. It’s awesome how I feel very hopeful that they will overcome everything. There are some points in the story, though, that I felt were dull. But they picked up the pace quickly. I do also not like how the romance progressed at the start but I gradually supported it and loved. I am also not that very satisfied with the ending. But what makes this really good is aside from being under the genre that a lot of people likes to read nowadays, it offers a unique twist of flavour. So I am sure that people will well-received this novel. I really recommend it to people out there, who are looking for a different kind of paranormal romance. A sexy but not too sexy read.
