Sandi’s Review-

I received this book as an ARC. It was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Immortal Heart by Inger Iverson is the prequel to her Few Are Angels series. I have not yet had the pleasure of reading any of the other books but plan to add them to my ever growing “To Be Read” list. Ms. Iverson has definitely made a fan out of me.

Kale is a Chory which is basically a pre-vampire. I wasn’t exactly sure what that meant. It was unclear to me how one went from being a Chory to a full on Vampire. Kale is searching for the reincarnation of his soul mate, Helene. In the process he befriends and mentors another Chory named Deacon, a Police Detective. Deacon, we learn is newly infected. Kale helps him adjust and control his feeding urges.

The two begin investigating a human trafficking case where women are being sold for their blood. The case leads them to undercover jobs as security guards at Jesper Ship Yard where they meet the beautiful Sola, the boss’ daughter.

As time goes by, Kale and Sola develop an intimate friendship. Unfortunately it is based on the lie that he is someone else. After a cryptic text message he finally admits to her that their relationship can be nothing more than a friendship because his heart still belongs to another. What he fails to mention is that the woman has been dead for over a century. She is disappointed but understands.

Lies and deceit keep him from telling her more. Kale wants to confide in her with the truth but is afraid it will destroy their connection in the process, especially when she finds out it’s her father they were investigating.

I’ll be completely honest; this story didn’t capture me at first. I felt as though I was missing something. Maybe it was because it was a prequel and it is assumed the reader read the first two books. I’m not sure. But once I advanced into the meat and bones of the book I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to see if they caught the person behind the trafficking operation, to see if Kale found Helene again or if he stayed with Sola. This story held turns I never saw coming. I fell in love with Kale, Sola and Deacon. I can not wait to see what the future holds for all of them.

Thank you Ms. Iversen! You definitely have a bestselling series on your hands as far as I am concerned!

Excerpt-

 

Sola pushed her fingers through her hair, trying desperately to untangle the mess of curls bundled at the top of her head. She was late, again, and only had enough time to shower, brush her teeth, and finger combed her hair. She’d thrown on a teal green short-sleeved blouse outlined in black, a pair of skinny jeans, and her most comfortable ballet slippers. There was a small tour at work that day, and she’d decided to dress a bit more business casual than usual.

She looked at the clock on her wall and groaned. “Damned curls! You’re always getting tangled.” She winced as she tugged at them and yanked her scalp.

In high school, her hair had been one of her best features—wild and curly, with a touch of natural copper coloring. The boys always wanted to run their hands through it, and the girls always wondered how an African American mother and father could have possibly produced a toffee-colored girl, with hazel eyes and natural golden highlights. Her mother always said she looked like a young Minnie Gentry, but with a riot of curls on her head. She loved to tell Sola that she had an untamed wildness to her beauty that couldn’t be mimicked with any amount of makeup, but Sola didn’t know who Minnie Gentry was, nor did she care about some untamed wildness.

The alarm on her phone beeped again, and Sola gave up with a huff. She grabbed tangle-free hair band and her spray bottle of water. The water would make detangling her curls easier, but the heat outside would cause her hair to frizz later, but since time wasn’t on her side, she didn’t have a choice. She was supposed to being giving a tour of the shipyard museum to some middle school kids.

She always wondered who really cared about the shipyard. Okay, yes it was where part of the popular horror film Jennifer’s Body was filmed, but in the end the director, Karyn Kusama, cut the scenes that included the shipyard, so what was everyone so excited to see?

It didn’t matter, though; working at Jesper Ship Yard was the only way Sola could keep her tiny apartment without the direct help of her parents.

After throwing her damp hair in a ponytail, she grabbed her bag and headed out the door and down the stairs of her apartment complex.
