Can an Immortyl society survive in a modern world?
From the ashes of the first battle of the Immortyl Revolution, vampires Mia Disantini and Kurt Eisen set out to build a new Immortyl society. Trouble arrives in the person of Cedric MacKinnon, a runaway adept of the ancient arts, who brings tidings of upheaval at the chief elder's court that threatens everything Mia and Kurt have accomplished. Mia finds it hard to resist when Cedric pledges his service and tempts her with the legendary skills he learned as an Immortyl courtesan. Facing opposition from both within and out, Mia begins to doubt Kurt is up to the task of leading their followers to his vision of an Immortyl Utopia. Torn between her loyalty to Kurt and Cedric's insistence that she is the earthly manifestation of the Goddess Durga and destined to lead, Mia confronts the greatest challenge of her life.

When I first started reading this book, I thought it would be another Vampire story. You know, rebellion in the ranks, fight and bite, drink some blood, make love, happy ending. And some of those things happen, I mean they are vampire so there is fighting, biting, drinking blood, and making love; however this book is so much more than that. This book includes a group of people who are discriminated against and who have come to a new land to try and make a better life for themselves (sounds a little like the history my daughter is studying in her American History class right now). There is also the struggle for equal rights, woman’s liberation, and the struggle to be recognized for more than what you appear on the surface. Oh, don’t get me wrong, you get all the vampire angst, but so much more. I was impressed with the weaving of the story. The story transcended the genre and was a story I was genuinely interested in as a story line rather than as a gimmick to show off the vampires. I enjoyed reading about the struggle to fit in and to triumph over the “disease” of vampirism. I will be interested to read further stories to see how things work out in the end. I have not read the first three books in this series, and while it might have given me some background information that I had to ferret out as I went, I was able to read this book as a stand alone novel. I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds. This product or book may have been distributed for review; this in no way affects my opinions or reviews
