A heart-pumping darkly passionate romance that promises and delivers time and again.
I’m a massive Anne Malcom fan, her writing is just dinkum, that’s Kiwi for genuine, and at the risk of sounding repetitive (because I’m pretty sure I’ve said this about Ms. Malcom before) – she’s got the gift of flawless character and plot progression. Every time I open one of her books I just get utterly and completely sucked in. She just holds such a special place in my book heart, she’s just so so dear to my heart.
I’m not going to go on and on because the reality is that just like Fatal Harmony (book #1 of The Vein Chronicles), Deathless is nothing short of exceptional. The moment it hit my kindle I’m pretty sure time stood still for my moment of outright and sheer maddening glee. Avid head bangers and moshers were put to shame. Enthusiastic ravers and flailers were outdone. I may have ascended to a whole new level of nutter, and quite frankly I just don’t give a flying fart in space! Deathless was everything that I had anticipated AND more. I was turning those pages quicker than a pubescent boy with his first Playboy. Anne Malcom had me hooked and it just felt so good getting my Isla fix, I swear she’s more kick-arse than Selene (Underworld flick chick) on a good day. I think she may actually be my book girlfriend… if I could I would… no doubts, no questions, I just would dive head first.
In true Vein Chronicles fashion, Deathless had me going from I knew it! to Whaaaaaat?!? from one milisecond to the next. The character and plot development were on point and just built an even more solid world from that of Fatal Harmony. It’s not often that an author can make a second book as good or even better than the first, but Malcom definitely achieves this. The pace was fast and delicious and secondary characters are sublime. I’m pretty sure that this sassy author already has future couples in mind! Which is good for me because I do not want his series to end. EVER. I mean what other series gives you such a divine cocktail of Vampires, Werewolves, Demons, Witches and homo sapiens? Exactly. None.
I’ve just finished this gorgeously gripping book and I’m already having anxiety pangs for the next one. I actually don’t know just how I’m going to be able to wait for book #3 – patience may be a virtue, but I am not virtuous. In any way. I just need to know where Anne Malcom is going next and I need more Isla in my life… STAT!
Deathless is now available on Kindle Unlimited!
About the Book
My life was never black and white.
Heck, it wasn’t even black, white and gray.
Lines were not drawn between good and evil, and if they were, I would have jumped those suckers for fun.
But now it was simpler. It wasn’t black and white. Or gray. It was only one thing.
A crimson-tinted world. That was all I needed.
All I wanted.
Despite the war raging around us, or the secrets between us, there was nothing simpler than blood.
It didn’t matter that it would be fatal.
After all, it’s the things we’re not undead without that will kill us in the end.
Also in The Vein Chronicles series
#1 Fatal Harmony
I may be the villain of the story, but at least I get a leading role.
Evil is a term thrown around history and literature as if it’s something so easily definable. A concept to fight against.
Evil doesn’t exist.
Neither does ‘good.’
Vampires do, though.
I just happen to be one.
I’ve cruised through the centuries managing to avoid all the wars, supernatural and human, but still going to all the best parties.
I would say I avoided bloodshed, but it’s kind of part of the whole ‘vampire’ thing.
I’ve lived on the fringes of a society that considered cruelty and sadism favorable character traits for almost five hundred years. Now I’m in the middle of a war that might just put my nonbeating heart in a lot of danger.
Battles, I can handle.
The impossible attraction between me and the vampire slayer, not to mention the penetrating gaze of the king of our race, on the other hand?
I might not get out undead.
About the Author
Anne Malcom has been an avid reader since before she can remember, her mother responsible for her book addiction. It started with magical journeys into the world of Hogwarts and Middle Earth; then as she grew up her reading tastes grew with her. Her obsession with books and romance novels in particular gave Anne the opportunity to find another passion, writing. Finding writing about alpha males and happily ever afters more fun than reading about them, Anne is not about to stop any time soon.
Raised in small town New Zealand, Anne had a truly special childhood, growing up in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. She has backpacked across Europe, ridden camels in the Sahara, eaten her way through Italy, and had all sorts of crazy adventures. For now, she’s back at home in New Zealand and quite happy. But who knows when the travel bug will bite her again?
