Explore the emotional upheaval that is the transformation from human to vampire.Bleeding to death after brutal mugging on the campus of UNLV, Twenty-five year old Alyssa, is rescued by the cold and aloof, vampire, Lysander. Taking pity on her, he shares the gift-and curse-of immortality. She awakens as a vampire and is soon devastated by harsh realities of her new way of life: An unyielding thirst for blood as well as the loss of her friends, her independence, and her humanity. As if having her humanity stripped away was not enough to make life interesting, Alyssa finds out her "turning," did not go unnoticed by the rest of undead society. Old enemies; an ancient sect of vampire hunters, known as the Acta Sanctorum, as well as a powerful Vampire mistress, each set plans in motion to destroy both Alyssa and Lysander. Only by accepting her new-found immortality, seizing the night, will Alyssa hope to survive. She and Lysander must fight together against two sets of enemies bent on destroying them both.
This book was a great read I loved it.
Katie puts yet another spin to the Vampire Legends and does not disappoint. This first book is all about Alyssa learning to cope with being turned into a vampire and I just loved the way the characters develop as the story progresses. I love Alyssa's character and I really loved Lysander's character. I have to admit that, "Immortalis Carpe Noctem" is one of the best Vampire story I have read in awhile . I enjoyed the way she explained how Vampires came to be. She stuck to the myths and legends and made it work in a way that not many others have been able to do. And I love my vampire books and can never seem to get enough of them. I love the way vampires can be told an so many ways yet always seem to still keep you intrigued by the way another author can tell a story with them involved and not ruin it.
This story is packed with action, passion, romance and a lot of stubbornness. Katie will have any reader on the edge of their seat. I actually found myself holding my breath a couple of times as I read on waiting to see what would happen next. I love it when a book can make you feel some type of emotion and this book delivers on that aspect I laughed and I cried in this book. It is an extremely entertaining story that will keep you begging for more. You will not be able to put it down, let me assure you! Katie is gonna knock it out of the park with this series.
