Review: Immortal Unchained by Lynsay Sands


Book Description

In a spellbinding new Argeneau novel from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands, a dangerous rescue is just the beginning of red-hot adventure…

Ever since Domitian Argenis recognized Sarita as his life mate, he’s been waiting for the perfect moment to claim her. Those fantasies did not include him being chained to a table in a secret lab or both of them being held hostage by a mad scientist. Somehow, they have to escape…

Sarita has seen some crazy things as a cop, but nothing to rival Domitian. A vampire? Seriously? But his healing ability, incredible powers, and their mind-blowing physical connection—none of it should be possible, yet her body knows differently. Now, not only do they have to save each other, but other innocent lives are at stake. Failure is not an option, for Sarita intends that Domitian show her exactly what an eternity of pleasure feels like…


My Review

Domitian is on a mission to find out who is kidnapping immortals but he doesn't realize that the person he's looking into knows what he is and plans on using him in a strange experiment. Sarita finds herself kidnapped and left alone on an island with a vampire who just happens to also be her lifemate. The Doctor who left them alone on the island wants to see how lifemates react to one another and how the nanos are transferred from vampire to lifemate to make them immortal. 

I found the first half of the book to be boring, nothing was happening with the exception of them being stuck in the house on the island and going at it like bunnies. They know they're being watched, they've seen the cameras but it doesn't stop them. I just found that to be ridiculous. They're doing exactly what the doctor wants them to. 

Thankfully this story does pick up and get better once things start changing and they have to find a way to help themselves. There were a couple of twists that I really liked and a couple of new characters that show up and made the story line really move along. While this book was good and I liked it, I didn't love it but it was worth reading if you like this series. This book introduces us to some new characters and I can only hope that we'll see some more of them in upcoming books because I don't want this to be the last I see of Thorne. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

  1. It's a good review, Mary. I find myself only reading your review because I want an honest, hands-on account. I think a book-readers review is far more important to me. Would I buy it? Yes, I would. I like all of your reviews. And I like how books are so important to you. They are to me too. I look for your ratings to see how good the book is. (Is it a Marilyn Manson - worth giving away or is it The Beach Boys - a great read). I trust your opinion.

  11. Escapist fantasy is delightful, even better when there's some self-deprecating humor. You might enjoy the Iron Druid Chronicles, which sound a little similar.
