Review: Immortal Obsession by Denise K. Rago
As a young man in eighteenth century France, Christian Du Mauré impulsively follows his best friend into the complex and warring world of the Parisian vampires. Against the backdrop of the French Revolution and following an affair with a mortal aristocrat, he promises to watch over her daughter - only to learn the child is his. Now settled in Manhattan, only two descendents of his union remain, Amanda and her brother, Ryan. After Amanda witnesses a savage murder in Central Park, she is determined to find the ethereal stranger who saved her life. When their worlds inevitably collide, Christian finds he cannot prevent Amanda from becoming a pawn in a centuries-old struggle for power. As a confrontation between ancient enemies comes to a head, Christian must face a betrayal from his past that still haunts him and threatens the woman he loves.
THis was a gift from the author and what a gift it was. This book is a great vampire read. The characters draw you in. There wasnt quit as much love story as i would have liked but it all worked out in the end. It does leave the door open for a sequel.The story line is well written and well executed. I love the jump from past to presant.
The main character makes you feel what she feels. and I felt for christian the vampire too. I was just sucked in with these two characters. It is a book that in my opinion should be in any vampire collection.
My Score: 5 STARS!
