This book was not for me. I will be thinking about the ending and be hoping for a different one in future books.
I did enjoy the author's flow.

I had high hopes for this book & I was only mildly disappointed. I felt that the backstory could have been filled out a bit more, but at the same time the unknowing made for better reading. The characters could use a little more fleshing out in my opinion. The author or editor could have done a better job at making sure the reader knew which point of view they were reading. For these reasons I knocked off a star in the review. The plot line seemed to jump all over the place in some areas, but then would settle out & you would get back to the main plot line straighten out again.

In my opinion Natasha/Blaze is actually a witch/werewolf/vampire mix. She is bonded to a werewolf so to...

Immortal: Guardian of Monsters is a supernatural fantasy novel which revolves around Natasha, a vampire who has a special ability to control fire, an element which typically destroys her kind. She is a member of a coven which is run by her lover who basically uses her as a killer for hire. I wasn't sure what the guardian in the title was referring to because she wasn't doing much guarding. I honestly couldn't figure her out as a character. One minute she's this hard core, cold-hearted killer and the next she turns into a depressed, pathetic woman who holes herself up in her room when the world isn't going her way. At the beginning of the book, she's a lesbian...

I gave it 3.5 stars

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...

Natasha needs to become vampire. She is not a good candidate right up until she displays an affinity for fire. Then her tormentor and coven leader turns her, and her memory of being human is gone. Twisted and sadistic, her fire gains her an awful reputation as she targets the wolves and steals their children for her maker to build an army. When 2 hybrids come to the covenant, her reign of terror is but a memory to her as she has retreated into herself after a traumatic occurrence. With freedom within her grasp, some of her past makes itself known. This book was gritty, dark, bloody with no relief from the suffering of literally everyone. Every happy moment was crushed by Natasha, which made...

What if your whole life was a lie? Blaze/ Natasha is feared by everyone and she enjoys the missions that she goes on and she will do anything for her maker Cassandra but someone will come and change that all. She has been told so many lies and she has accepted everything that she has been told. She knows that she can trust Cassandra as she loves her and accepts her for what she is. But one night everything will change as she kills her werewolf children by accident and she just wants to die. But it isn't that easy as she is a vampire and no matter how she tries Cassandra always makes her drink. She is about to meet a werewolf/vampire that will change everything for help but it will come...

A litttle confusing in some parts but it was overall pretty enjoyable.

Immortal would easily be on recommendation list for science fiction and fantasy readers. Kristin Ping writes in an engaging way that does not get bogged down in the vernacular of this other world she has created. Words like Varcolac are used, explained when needed, but do not fill up much of the pages, as I have seen other authors do.

Further adding to my inclination to recommend the book is its place in a larger series. The promise of more books and an expansive universe is like candy for readers who delve into the universe authors can create. Ping has certainly created a universe here, and I would gladly share this book with a wide range of readers, from vampire fiction lovers to...
