This book continues on from where ‘Fatal Harmony’ book 1 leaves us. I wouldn’t recommend reading this book if you haven’t had the chance to read book one as there is a lot of the story and characters that won’t make a lot of sense.
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.
Isla and Thorne, Thorne and Isla...
I love Thorne just putting it out there 😉 the unconditional love and affection he has for Isla. WOW! I do have to say I did love Isla in ‘Fatal Harmony’ and the beginning of ‘Deathless’ but then got annoyed with her after the secret between Thorne and Rick is revealed. I understand she was hurt, but I felt that she just over reacted. There was never anytime between the killing and dying for the secret to come out, plus it’s kind of a big deal, it can’t just be brought up in a casual conversation. But after the reconciliation the sassy and kicka** Vampire Isla I love was back. YAY! Plus she gets a little revenge back on her family, it was well overdue.
I do have to mention Sophie, what an Awesome Chick. I love her loyalty... She will literally do anything for the ones she loves. I can’t wait to see how she grows into her powers. But I am also a little concerned for her after the incident at the beginning of ‘Deathless’ where she looses control. But I did have a chuckle where she freezes Rick and then forgets she has done it 😝. Duncan is so freaking Hilarious, he’s too cool and carefree attitude is just what this Scooby Doo gang needs.
A great series:)
This book has something for everyone.
Ass kicking action of the paranormal variety ✅
Swoon worthy moments ✅
Seriously hot chemistry ✅
Witty banter and dialogue ✅
Supporting characters you love ✅
Storyline that leaves you wanting more ✅
Banter and dialogue so funny you will definitely laugh and might snort ✅
And most importantly it has a heroine that you want to be best friends with. Isla is the very best kind of kick ass character you want to go out for a few cocktails with and then join her posse and kill a few bad guys.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone looking for an action packed, funny, emotional, hot and female empowering read.
Thorne and Isla are my perfect couple. Swoon Central ❤️❤️❤️
Wasn’t that what love did? Broke you into as many pieces as humanly, and inhumanely, possible so you couldn’t put yourself back together? Not without the other person, at least.
I'm not going to say anything else because I don't want to spoil the book for readers but I do have to share my favourite quote from Isla. I just love her. I love her hard.
I never make promises because I don’t like present Isla making future Isla’s decisions for her. I find it rude.
Thank you Anne for another book that gave me everything I needed.
There's some nice wrap ups here which are appreciated, and in one sense conclude a small part of the series. However, this doesn't at all mean that the series should end here. So, yes, I'm waiting for the next piece of Isla to add pep to my step and give me no small smirk for the day.

At times, I actually lost focus on Isla's original point and felt that it was taking away from the otherwise excellent story. The blurb I posted above is an excellent example of text from the book. I'm sure that there are tons of people who love this style, but it is not for me.
At times I had to force myself to finish reading the book, or at least skim the current section, because I did want to find out what happened. But I will admit that if the author wasn't someone I usually like, I would have given up before the 50% mark.
In addition to the run-on sentences and overly wordy style, sometimes sentences just didn't make sense. Ms. Malcom's editor/betas did not do her any favours in this instance.
The next book in this series is going to be one I wait and borrow from my local library, rather than purchasing. I still want to know where the series goes but if it is written the same way, I won't be continuing.
What can I say? I enjoyed the first book, it had all the trappings of great paranormal fiction.... Then I read Deathless. Please please please Anne Malcom hire an EDITOR! I don't just mean for grammar, spelling, and fluidity (though that needs a lot of work too), but for CONTENT. The redundancy of more than half the book made it really hard to get through. The same concepts and the same conversations, god forbid the same descriptive words just kept showing up over and over again ad nauseam. There should be a limit on how many times the author is allowed to use the word "depraved"... yes we get it the heroine and her buddies and the world we live in has issues. After reading the 50th "depraved" comment or scene I was seriously feeling the need to throw a thesaurus at someone. This series has potential. I love the snark and the humor, but get a handle on the content contradictions, personality disorders as character building, the failed badly worded prophesies that debase the plot, and the highly ambiguous ideas on good vs evil ect. EDITING. PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF THE WRITTEN WORD HIRE A DAMN EDITOR... Or fire your current one.
I love Isla's snark and her witticisms, it's one of the reasons I devoured the book. There were only a couple of things I didn't love, the first was her (over) reaction to Thorne's origin story. The second was her constant reminders that she's a strong woman who doesn't need a man to save her. Those are really just minor complaints though and I’m really looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
