Immortal Craving by Kendra Leigh Castle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I picked this one up as a netgalley, having read the book right before this also as a netgalley. I have to say this is a fun series. The characters are original, albeit a little confusing at first.
Summary:Wild, uncontrollable, and powerful, the lion-shifting Rakshasa were hunted down by vicious rival vampires who feared their dark, magical abilities. Somehow one survived, and now, after centuries of hiding, Tasmin Singh reemerges as fierce and fearless as ever at the door of the Lilim queen, seeking answers . . . and sanctuary.
The human best friend to a vampire queen, Bay Harper traded her quiet, comfortable life for a world filled with immortal assassins, warring werewolves . . . and this hauntingly sexy shifter. Only Bay's gentle touch can subdue Tasmin's inner demons, even as he brings out a passion and sensuality she never imagined she could feel. But when a bloody struggle threatens to tear them apart, can Bay risk everything on her faith in him-or will his dark side be stronger than even their all-consuming desire?
In the beginning the author gives you a breakdown of all the different kinds of Vampires. I kind of just skimmed past it at first but it was nice to have it there just in case I wanted to refer back to it.
This story follows the strong willed but very caring dog groomer as she tries to handle the world of Vampires which seems to have fallen at her doorstep. Along the way she finds herself drawn to a man who no one is sure about, which of course makes him all the more attractive.
I love a story with a strong give and take between the leads and this one fit the bill. With originality and smart characters I think this series is one you should add to your TBR pile.
