A very intriguing start to this series! I’m still new to Lexi’s books but they are so different to other paranormal books that I’m really enjoying them:)
Stas is living in New York City with her bestie Lizzie, when she goes to visit one of her best friend’s. When she arrives there is a mysterious man outside her friend’s apartment and they have an encounter of the third kind. Issac is at Owen’s apartment as a favour to a friend, when Stas walks towards his apartment and frowns at Issac - he’s confused that she can see him as no one in the building should be able too......(revealed a little later what this is!....paranormal says it all!). Stas and Issac in the paranormal world are an off-limits couple....but could there be something different about her that could make it work?
Be aware that the story continues in book two and not all is revealed in this first one! Tom’s on the chopping block next....can’t wait:)
“…She learned a long time ago that the supernatural was real. Not the kind kids enjoyed reading about or the stuff of fairy tales, but the real kind. The scary kind. The kind that killed.”
Blood Laws is the first book in the Immortal Curse Series and mind-bogglingly fantastic DEBUT novel from Lexi C. Foss. This breathtaking paranormal romance has all the ingredients needed to make it a stellar read- this should be on everyone’s ‘Must Read’ list. The story is epic- with immortals, a tenuous peace between two powerful races, murder, mystery, bloody violence, action, suspense, sinister forces, danger, strong female lead, panty melting Alpha male, spicy and erotic ‘bedroom’ scenes, polished and masterfully written, incredible scene setting, wonderfully exciting characters, original and thrilling storyline, enticingly sexy cover and intriguing blurb. REALLY….. What are you waiting for? Reading this review will take away valuable reading time!! Grab a copy and get lost in the pages just like I did. You really WON'T regret it. You’ll want to thank me!! It really is just THAT GOOD!!!!! This has “Best Seller” written all over it!!! Astasiya Davenport (Stas) came to New York to study and take up an Internship with a relief foundation in their media relations department. She has a wonderful roommate and good friends she considers to be like family. But she has a huge secret. She has psychic powers, not the ‘I can see your future, or speak to dead people kind of psychic powers- but a much more powerful kind. She has kept this ability secret since her birth parents were killed when she was a little girl. She was adopted not long after by a very kind and loving couple who she adores. But still, she keeps that part of herself hidden. Stas has no idea how or why she has this ability, or what that makes her. She would really love to find out more about herself and her history. But who would she ask? On her way to meet a friend for coffee, Stas notices a tall, breathtakingly stunning man- she is struck by his suave and sexy charisma. Little Does she know that this fateful meeting is about to completely turn her life upside down- it will never be the same again. She is in for one heck of an exciting, informative and defining journey. There is a lot more to Issac Wakefield than meets the eye. Not only is he one of New York City’s Hottest and most eligible bachelors, but he is also an immortal who owns a billion dollar pharmaceutical company. There is a lot of baggage that comes with being centuries old, he has many secrets- one of which is a vendetta against a former friend. Issac is intrigued by this captivating beauty and knows there is something ‘different’ about her. He pretty quickly figures out her secret and makes her a tantalizingly seductive proposition. He will teach her about her abilities if she will pretend to be his girlfriend. Without giving too much away, the story really lifts off at this point as secrets come to light and discoveries are made. Their ‘role-playing’ takes on a new and unexpected turn. Passions are ignited and their intense chemistry bubbles over. This connection doesn’t come around every lifetime. Will they realise what they have before it’s too late? What will Stas discover about herself and her life? When sinister forces place them in a very dangerous situation, will Issac be able to keep them both safe? What are the sinister forces after? Where will their journey take them? With danger and threats at every turn, these two will have to trust each other and keep their wits about them, to outwit these foes. While reading this book I was struck by how truly talented Ms. Foss is, she truly has limitless creativity and imagination. Her indisputable skill was evident throughout this book- in building a believable and exciting ‘world’ in which to set her brilliant story, as well as creating a complex storyline full of mysterious wonder and intrigue, then consummately crafting fantastic characters that are realistic, relatable and extremely appealing. Even though this story is imagination at its best, I never questioned the details or doubted the very convincing paranormal elements.
There is so much to this story that makes it truly spectacular and just so perfect. I could rave about it for hours. I was so immersed in this story that the real world faded away. When the end came, I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to stay with Astasiya and Issac and continue their story. I am on a book ‘High’, and I don’t want to come down. I need the next book TODAY!!!! A truly exhilarating read!!!!
