Defying Shadows (Rising Shadows yDNF50% I was utterly bored by this book It drags and drags on things previously covered on the series such as the origins of the immortals This is probably with intent on making them standalone I get and respect that but way too much page space is used with that purpose It s stunting progression significantly and losing me completely in the process Absolutely nothing of note has happened in the last 3050% The main characters are also not very interesting and I don t feel a connection to them and between them I m not sure if I m willing to try another in the series I loved so many of them but am feeling burnt out on this world and there s just not enough variety any No no no no NO NO NOOOSo wrongview spoilerHero is 3500ears old Had a life mate briefly when he was very The Great Orange Leonard Scandal (Tall Tales Series; 4) young No kids He aged got bored and lonely and wanted kids So he found an immortal friend and has had 26 YES TWENTY SIX kids with this woman The most recent being only 25 Sherry is 32 And sinceou can only have 1 kid every 100 Tangled Webs (The Black Jewels, years that means he has been hooking up with this woman for over 2600ears But it means nothing because they never lived together Yea right Plus it means that Sherry would not be able to have a kid for 75 A Fairly Honourable Defeat years hide spoiler The Immortal Who Loved Meby Lynsay SandsI am absolutely flabbergasted If I were talking instead of writing I would be practically speechless We re up to book 21 in the Argeneau series and while Sands has at times struggled to remain fresh and coherent it has still been an enjoyable series But this book I had problems with this book Don t even bother reading ifou don t want spoilers because that is all I am going to be doing hereThe book starts off kind of novel lots of drama and violence and Stephanie the teen Edentate ie vampire without fangs who isn t crazy from previous books is the heir apparent in finding life mates And this time instead of maneuvering Stephanie is very up front hey vampires are real and this is our life mate this is what a vampire is all of that it is right out in the open Conseuently I think a new reader could actually start here which is unusual for such a long running series Everything was going along fairly smoothly and while Sherry and Basil s chemistry wasn t the best nothing like Basil s bother Lucien and his lifemate Leigh I was enjoying this than the previous couple of books and then we hit the first speed bump the hero Basil has been having babies every 100 ears or so over the past 3000 Elisabeth Shue 135 Success Facts - Everything You Need to Know about Elisabeth Shue years with a friend of his and as recently 25ears ago Ok that threw me for a loop But he explained and while I was still not precisely thrilled with it I understood his motivations life is boring and they found having children fulfilling So on we went Then we got closer to the end and we started realizing Sherry had been controlled by a vampire her entire life Turns out her father while an effed up drunken immortal 19 ear old used mild mind control to convince Sherry s happily married mother to have sex with him Later he found Sherry s mother in a hospital after she tried to kill herself over a pregnancy from an infidelity she couldn t understand and he used mind control on them to try to fix his mistake and he stuck around When Sherry s parents eventually divorced he stepped in as an uncle As Sherry aged he wiped his image from her mind to show back up as her best friend Later he did it again and got her to hire him for her new business And all the while wen she went off the rails so to speak he would control her or wipe her mind to fix things Naturally Sherry was completely devastated and righteously angered But then Elvi who seemed a reasonable and sensible person in her own book turned into a sociopath and explained how what Sherry s sperm donor did was alright because mortal parents would do it IF THEY COULD AND THE RAPE REALLY WASN T they could and the rape really wasn t bad because it wasn t a violent violation WTF Then Basha from a previous book
also finally had togot to kill her own son Leo who finally had togot to kill her own son Leo who the true villain of this current story arc And Sherry realized everything is hunky dory and she looks to go rescue her dad from the horrific punishment he is due violent though the punishment was it seemed like an appropriate one to me Sherry and Basil admit their love they find out Sherry s paternal grandfather will be showing up and the book basically ends So basically I am not at all pleased with this book I am not pleased with the way this book handles consent and I am not pleased with this lopped off ending I honestly don
know if I am with this series but unless something spectacular is happening in the next book I am doubtful I will continue I am sorry to say but this story has negatively colored the entire series for me No rating from me only disappointmentCross posted And ou know that old saying two s company and three s mass murder The bad guy Hey if the bad guy had been this funny the whole time I would have been rooting for him But darn he s only funny in this book and things don t end well for himThis book was a big step up from the last one because there was actual personality to the characters instead of them being cardboard cut outs Because everyone knows that cardboard has the least personality of all of the boardsOh I take that backThese guys are interesting than our book characters in the previous bookSo in this one we have Sherry and Basil She meets with a teenage vamp when the bad guy comes storming into her store looking to kill the girl They run together and end up in a pizza place Cuz ou know running is tiring Stopping for pizza makes senseAnd while stopping for pizza after just witnessing the bad guy make a pregnant lady slit her own throat and then barely escaping him by taking a cop s gun and shooting him a bunch of times why not talk about boys That s what we girls do after all We can t go than a few minutes without. A few hours ago Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store leaving bloody chaos literally in their wake The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad. Gone (Gone, years old and has no sense of humorSherry makes a joke because his name is Basil and teen vamp is pronouncing it like the spice She says he s like pepperoni As inou re the pepperoni in her pizza Stephanie said and burst out laughingBasileios stared from one to the other blankly and then asked Stephanie You re uite sure this woman is my match There is no mistake Sherry wrinkled her nose at the man Be nice spice boy I woke up this morning on earth Five hours later I ve stepped into the twilight zone Cut me some slack here I was just teasing Threads Of The Shroud you to let off a little steam Hmmm he murmured So I immediately like Sherry and dislike Spice boy But Basil gets better as the book goes on and I eventually liked him too He must have worked that stick out from his assOr this guy showed upAnother good thing about this book was that there wasn t a bunch of waffling and angst over the whole life mate thing Sherry listened to everything and accepted it pretty easily She was sensible about everything but still had a great sense of humor and rattled Spice boy enough to make me happy Overall it was entertaining and best of all it was the last one of these I had to read to get to the book I ve been waiting for foreverPlease don t let me down next book This formula is getting extremely stale It is all so rote by now thatou know the heroine will have had the entire vampire life explained to her by third chapter then we know Leo is going to show up and menace then we spend dozens of chapter protecting her in an authoritarian fashion while introducing as many past couples as possible until time to end the book one chapter of plot denouement and then boom we are in love forever Even one of the characters brings up the ridiculousness of all these supposedly immortals suddenly finding all these mates I really hope the author didn t bring up Basil s 20 odd kids so she could extend this another 20 odd books And seriously All Seated on the Ground you can t spend 20 plus books talking about how lifemates can t influence each other and then expect me to buy this repeated well maybe this mysterious vampire thinksou re his lifemate thing Hello did Untitled. you seriously forget that plot connivence that drives every book toward the middle of this one I mean if several characters repeat the can t influence evidence then these same characters discuss whether this other mysterious vampire might think she s his life mate as though it is an actual option Without saying that the vampire would have to be a moron who knew nothing about how lifemates really work I guess I would have just been left with a ho hum read but then I got the mama was raped part of the storyline which the author immediately retcons into being ok becauseou know it wasn t rape rape and she really wanted it anyway WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK WHY AM I READING THIS SHIT Rape in romance novel is bad enough but the main character literally goes from hating the dude to don t hurt my daddy in two pages of bullshit And the not really rape part makes me so angry Don t fucking bring into the story in the first place if ou are going to treat the subject so poorly You want her father to be an actual vampire write it in better This one was exceptionally bad in that it first acknowledged then belittledT Know If I Am
criticism see rape and mind controlthe review iSee rape and mind controlThe review I most likely post on While The Immortal Who Loved Me fit the typical Argeneau MO I was in this case severely disappointed by something the author integrated into the story Due to that I feel too biased to review the book in a non personal mannerThat being said I m sure most fans of the series will enjoy the book It sadly doesn t introduce anything innovativenew but it also never promised to do so and to my knowledge fans don t count on anything the like either Regardless I m sure it could be an enjoyable read as long as ou don t mind the fact that the issue of mind controlconsentrape that had been criticised by some reviewers in the past was first addressed and then belittled If this is a sensitive topic for Against All Odds you I would personally recommendou skip this title This review is going to be a bit of a mess I just finished reading it and I usually take a day or two before I write the review just to get everything in perspective Anyways moving alongBasileios Argeneau is a 3538 ear old immortal WHO IS NOW A LAWYER I is now a lawyer I he s vampire in than one way get it cause lawyers are considered bloodsuckersno I ll stop He is Lucian and Victor s brother He is said to be bossy

Guys’ trail may be her life mate Her head says it’s impossible The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much interesting ideasWhatever Basil expected in a life mate funny outspoken Sherry isn’t it But mind blowing chemist.
