Very interesting story. It was refreshing to read a book with a different story line then regular paranormal type books. Wish it had ended differently. This was an intense read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is the first book I have had the pleasure of reading from this author but it most certainly wont be the last. If you like the Supernatural, vampires, werewolves and shifters then your going to LOVE this book. Great storyline, fabulous plots, full of angst and hold on to the edge of your seat moments, thrills and surprises. From the get go I wasnr able to put the book down. Now I need to check to see if this belings to a series because Im hooked. I definitely reccommend for those of you whom like reading Paranormals.

Immortal: Guardian of Monsters is not your average vampire novel. Immortal is not even your average vampire, witch, and werewolf novel. This novel has its action-packed moments, but it is also full of a lot of reflection by the main character, Natasha aka Blaze. Natasha starts life off as a human, but there is something driving her to become an immortal. She never shares this reason with anyone, but she allows it to drive her. She strives to be the best of the Nightlings, but she’s not. The night that her human life ends, everything that she was striving for is erased. Her memories, gone and now she is simply a dangerous weapon of destruction to all who cross her path. With her gift of fire, Natasha is renamed Blaze, and she proceeds to rain down terror and death on all around her and her coven. She enjoys what she does. Blaze fears no one, and takes immense joy in the death she unleashes on so many – enemy and coven member alike, until one-day …something changes. Immortal: Guardian of Monster by Kristin Ping is book one in her series. This is the first book that I have read by this author and I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. The author pulls me into the story from the very beginning and has me turning pages all the way to the end. I’m curious about Natasha’s story, but the story doesn’t just focus on Natasha. The story touches on Cassandra, Sonia, and others as well. The story progresses forward while at the same time reflecting back and filling in the gaps for us as well. Overall, this is very well done. I like that the story does not suffer from this because I was worried that the story would become hard to follow and understand. This is not the case, so I applaud the author for that fact. This is a very curious story, I have to say. We set lies, deception, manipulation and so much loss and destruction throughout the story. Cassandra is trying to build an army for a Great War that she believes is coming and she is willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish her goal. In her eyes, Natasha is a weapon to be used. There are several heartbreaking moments in this story for characters that we come to know and like, and ones that we know nothing about. There are honorable moments and moments of complete manipulation and evil. While this story is well written, it is not without its flaws. There are several editorial issues throughout this story. There are places of where words are missing in sentences that can throw you off a bit as you are reading. For me, there were also a few sentences that I had to reread to fully understand properly what was being said. I will admit that I was disappointed somewhat with the ending. I was expecting more or at least a revelation, but that is not the case. Since this book is part of a series, I’m hoping that the author will eventually tie all the stories together into an epic conclusion that will answer all questions that I’m sure others will hold as well. All in all, I am rating this book 4.5 out of 5 stars. I’m taking off half a star for the editorial issues. While I don’t feel that there is really anything about a “Guardian” in this story, it is a fascinating novel to read. I practically devoured this book in a day, so you know that there is something special about it. Blaze is an engaging character, but the story does not ride on her alone, which I liked. There is some romance in this novel, but it is not the main focus.
