DARKNESS AVENGED by Alexandra Ivy Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance Sensuality: HOT RT Rating 4 1/2 Ivy fans are in for a special treat as not only do they get a darkly romantic adventure featuring sexy Santiago and the mysterious Nefri, they also get a bonus short story featuring everyone’s favorite gargoyle, Levet. In book after book, Ivy builds a fascinatingly complex, ever-evolving mythology where dynamic and sometimes stubborn characters collide — with epic results. While most of the paranormal/demon world is rejoicing over the defeat of the Dark Lord, vampire Santiago remains angered that, despite their sensual connection, Nefri returned to behind the Veil. Then, a former dark witch informs the vampires that the traitorous Gaius did not perish with the Dark Lord but is free and unleashing a strange violent scourge on the mortal world. Santiago is tasked with hunting down Gaius, his sire, but what he doesn’t know is that Nefri has been given a similar task by the Oracles. An ancient evil has escaped its prison and taken up with Gaius and it will be up to Santiago and Nefri to find and stop it. But that task won’t be easy, since the means to defeat this entity are shrouded in dark magic and death. (ZEBRA, Jun., 352 pp., $7.99) Reviewed By: Jill M. Smith

My Lord Immortality Immortal Rogues My Lord Immortality had such a wonderful story line. It is well written and the plot keeps you interested from start to finish. Alexandra Ivy has significant talent and always writes books that have just something to surprise you. You get something more in her paranormals than you do in others. She seems to always come up with something new and surprising for the reader. I love her books. Alexandra Ivy has never disappointed me. She always keeps me reading way past my bedtime and then some. I love the paranormal books that have an element of romance. I am always anxious for Alexandra Ivy’s next book. I for one think that she can't write fast. I hope to see many more from this wonderful author. Keep them coming! Book Blurb for My Lord Immortality Amelia Hadwell has no time for London's nightlife.
