Monsters are real, and they stand before me pretending to be human...


Caught in a world of vampires, dark desires and addiction, Angela Cross has walked on the edge of the surreal and found herself in a struggle for her own heart. Drawn to two dangerous men, Angela must make the choice between a life with vampires or a life against them. Will she succumb to the immortal's desire...or will she become the hunter?


Both the story and the editing are good. Immortal Desire is an extremely dark story, and could probably fit under the sub-genre of horror. It portrays vampires and werewolves as dangerous monsters. The story has a lot of plot twists and turns those keep it going and make it a page turner. Angela, the main character, falls in with vampires, and her relationship with them is twisted and bleak.

The Hunter’s character could have used some more development because the reader was left with some questions. Perhaps they were left unanswered for another story.

The emotions of the characters definitely make an impact on the reader. It’s hard not to feel a little sad and depressed for Angela. However, the author leaves us with a feeling of resolve and hope regarding her.
