Thank you to NetGalley for granting this ARC, and fast read. The plot was interesting and the story was steamy.

I love that we finally have Stephanie's story! I loved her character in the other novels. This one did not disappoint.

So I weirdly love the name Thorne? Random note aside I really enjoyed this one. It weirdly gives me similar feelings while reading as the Immortal Instruments. Like not the content itself but just the feeling if that makes any sense. I think the premise itself was really clever and ultimately I just devoured it to be honest.

In Immortal Rising, Ms. Sands might have created the best Not-Immortal but Not-Mortal character ever brought to life through the pages of a book!  And as an added bonus we readers get the follow-up story of Stephanie McGill who is the younger sister of the two girls who were rescued by Lucian Argenau and who survived being attacked and turned as teenagers by their kidnapper in an earlier book.  Stephanie has found a place where she can find relative peace from the never-ending thoughts of all the people within a close to 35 or so mile radius when she is told that someone is moving into the main house on the property she lives on while the current residents are away for an extended amount of time.  She braces herself for a new onslaught of thoughts to bombard her brain, but surprisingly, they never come.  In fact, suddenly, she has total quiet in her mind for the first time in years!  While she is enjoying the sudden peace and quiet, she can't help but wonder why?  Is it because of Thorne, the newcomer, or is there a more sinister reason behind it all?  And what about Thorne himself?  Just what kind of being is he?  As we get the answers to all of these questions the action ramps up in typical Argenau Vampires book style, and we have first row seats to the romance that develops between Stephanie and Thorne as well as to the danger and drama that gets visited upon them by not just one evil protagonist but the past that is coming for Stephanie too!  Ms. Sand's Argenau Vampires series has just upped the ante for her readers and produced the best of them all!  So far, anyway, IMHO.  We also get to enjoy the company of some of the past characters from previous books in the series, which is always a treat in and of itself!

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy provided by the publisher through NetGalley.

Full disclosure here - I have read and loved all 34 books in The Argeneau Series by Lynsay Sands.  I have loved them all!!!  This book was a bit different because Thorne, one of the main characters, was created as a science experiment.  He is not quite immortal, yet not mortal either.  Stephanie McGill was in a previous book as a kidnapping victim and turned against her will. Her abilities are different from the rest of the immortals that she knows.  She’s been leading a lonely life.  This kind of makes them the perfect couple because they both seek solitude and want to be away from mortals.

True to the series, Stephanie and Thorne have sexual attraction that is off the charts, they have all the immortal benefits.  There is an element of suspense because they are both in danger of who they are.  Stephanie is being hunted by Dressler, the scientist that created Thorne.  The Argeneau family comes out in full force to help and protect them.  This story fits in perfectly with the world that they author has created.  It’s exciting, suspenseful, fun and super romantic.  It’s one of the paranormal romances that I am really into.  I love how their story is told and the fact that some secondary characters that I had forgotten about, got their own story.  If you are already a reader of this series, get this book!  If you are new to this series, start reading.  You will be hooked and this can be your next binge.

Immortal Rising by Lynsay Sands is book 34 in “The Argeneau Series”  in this story the MCs are Stephanie McGill (Vampire) and Thorne (One-of-a-kind, not immortal yet not mortal either).  We originally met Stephanie in book 11, The Immortal Hunter, that story details her previous kidnapping and turning, when she was turned she was found to have the ability to read minds (Insert, she is like Edward Cullen 😉). Thorne is also a previously introduced character in book 25, Immortal Unchained, although Thorne is the result of a genetic experiment he is the perfect sexy specimen of man. I think we need more experimental “mistakes” with results like him…I will sign up to keep one hidden (in my bedroom).  Watching Stephanie and Thorne fall in love made for a one-of-a-kind romance! ❤️‍🔥 These two have amazing chemistry, their passions run very high, and the emotions between them jump off the page - making this a romance that *bites* you right in the feelz! I loved every bit of the story! 

Never fear this story has some danger too for those who enjoy some pulse-pounding action and adventure. There is a mad scientist reeking havoc who must be dealt with before Thorne and Stephanie are allowed their HEA 😉

Once again I applaud Lynsay Sands and her creativity which keeps this series fun and even after 34 books this still remains one of my favorite paranormal romance series.  I can’t wait to see what is next! 

5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ | 4 Flames 🔥🔥🔥🔥  - please check this series out if you haven’t already.

This was a great addition to the Argeneau series! I have really loved reading all of these books and even though there's a TON of them, I have not gotten bored with them.

Immortal Rising is book 34 of Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series and while it can be read as a standalone book, you will enjoy this book so much more if you have read at least some of the other books in this series. 

I am always amazed that Lynsay Sands has been able to keep this series interesting through so many books. While there is a general theme to the Argeneau stories, the individual stories are not just a repeat of the original story with different characters.  You get such good stories that are fun to read, just a little bit predictable, and engage your imagination.

The worldbuilding is good, which is pretty standard for the author, the magic system is consistent, and the pacing is pretty quick.  And as always, this is yet another story that I loved reading. You will too.

Thank you  Avon and Harper Voyager and NetGalley for sending me this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Immortal Rising is book number 34 in the Argeneau series.  Ms Sands has once again knocked it out of the park.  One of my favorite things about her writing is the little one shots that she creates between her characters.  Stephanie and Thorne have so many quips and one liners between them that make me so happy!  

Lucien is, and probably always will be, one of my favorite characters in this world and his ability to just not care while being one of the most kind hearted people is amazing and. I love it.  I would recommend this book to everyone as well as the whole series!

I will read pretty much any Argeneau book Lynsay Sands puts out and this one really caught my attention. In pivoting to the results of the missing villain Dressler’s experiments, we’re now shaking up the formula for the Argeneau immortal life mates series. I thoroughly  enjoyed getting to meet someone outside the usual mix of turned immortals and born immortals — now we have MADE IMMORTALS and I am so incredibly excited to see where else the series goes. 

Definitely not a standalone, this installment is clearly setting up for a whole new arc of characters and experiences.

Lynsay of the queens of paranormal romance does it again. I devoured this book. Loved it. This book is part of an insanely long series [as it should be] but can be read as a standalone. Definitely give it a read.

Thank u to Avon and Harper Voyager for granting me a peak!

Here goes~
Genre~ Paranormal Romance
Series~ Book 34 in the series
Love triangle~ see spoiler in my GR review link 
Cheating~ see spoiler in my GR review link 
HEA~ see spoiler in my GR review link
Would I read more by this author/or in this series~ Yes
Rating~ 4.5 stars

Stephanie originally gets mentioned in the series in book 11 "Immortal Hunter"
Stephanie and her family are attacked and she gets bitten by a different
kind of immortal. She gets peppered through out 
the series but I always wondered if we were gonna get more of
her unique story~

Thorne has a unique story of his own and let me tell u it's not something 
I was Xpecting! I will tell u that he has a 'medical condition' that brings 
him to Stephs neck of the woods and they end up crossing paths
Their distinctive abilities are not only new to these characters but to the 
Argeneau series and their previous immortals so I think L Sands is developing
 their world idyllically!!
Thorne and Stephanie's chemistry is off the wall soon as they touch!

I love the Argeneau Novels and always wait w/anticipation 
for the following novel and old/new characters! 

For now Happy Reading!

Absolutely fantastic read and continue to my favourite book series! Lynsay Sands has the ability to take you into another world, keep you hanging on the edge of your seat, laughing away and flicking through the pages until suddenly you come to the end and instantly want the next book to read! As always I can't wait for the next one in the series and I shall be pre ordering it as soon as it's available.

Stephanie was turned when she was young and now lives with her adopted family. Thorne is the result of an experiment, he's neither mortal or immortal. He just wants peace and quiet to figure out his place in the world. Stephanie, the girl next door is more than interesting to him. The two end up together but now the crazy scientist that created Thorne wants to get his hands on Stephanie. A thrilling paranormal read.

I received a copy of this book via Netgalley.

I was happy to return to complete the Dressler storyline in the Argeneau series. I am also glad we got to hear from Stephanie's story as she has been a side character in other stories. I did feel the Thorne muting voices for Stephanie was predictable and the overall story was quick in timeline which I didn't love since I would have loved to have Thorne and Stephanie connect over more than a few days. I appreciated seeing more of Lucian's protective side.

A sweet continuation of the Argeneau/Immortal series.

Overall thoughts:

I really enjoyed this read but then, I typically enjoy most books that involve vampires. I loved Lynsay’s interpretation of vampires. This is the first book I’ve read from the series (This book is # 34!) and I liked that I didn’t need to read any of the others in order to understand this one. I definitely want to read more from this series.

The ending felt a little anticlimactic. The entire book references the mad scientist that everyone is trying to catch and then when he finally enters the picture the problem is solved almost immediately. IDK, am I such a drama queen that I wanted shit to hit the fan and all hell break loose?! 😂 

Still very much an enjoyable read ❤️
