Immortal: Guardian of Monsters
Release Date: April 15, 2018
Publisher: Fire Quill Publishing
Varcolac Book #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Review Copy Source: NetGalley

Natasha’s life begins the night she is turned. With the ability to channel fire, a gift that only belongs to the witches, she becomes a terror—not only to the packs, but all the supernatural breeds. She’s known as Blaze. The deadliest vampire out there. But Blaze has a secret. She didn’t want to become a vampire, she needed to become a vampire, and her reasoning is lost. It died the night her human life did. Her conscience activates when two Varcolacs visit the covenant, looking for allies for the Great War.

What was it about the Varcolacs that made her grow a conscience? And will she be able to outrun it to keep the title of terror?

I was both intrigued and annoyed after reading IMMORTAL.

IMMORTAL read like a Novella to me. It seemed like we were learning someone's past and that we should have known their future already, maybe? Natasha was super interesting to me. I didn't always like her, but by the end of the book I only wanted to know more.

The plot was a little all over the place, but it only made me want to keep reading. The pacing is fast and there is a lot of action. This story isn't bunnies and rainbows, there are a lot of dark and bloody moments.

So why could I possibly be annoyed? JUST when things finally start to make sense and we get a little bit of our questions answered it ends. AHHH. Yeah I want to read the next book and I hope I don't have to wait forever for it.

I gave it 3.5/5 stars
