Soul Mate By Anna Santos (Immortal Love #1)

Pari's Books!

I received an e-ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Annabel is a bad-ass hybrid hunter, seeking revenge from the vampire who killed her parents and put her brother in a coma. Arriving in a new town with an undercover identity to protect and the mission to find a pureblood vampire to save her brother’s life, the last thing Annabel needs is to fall in love with the sexy, persistent werewolf who thinks she’s a helpless human in need of a knight in shining armor.

Shane is a dominant werewolf who also happens to be the local sheriff. He has almost lost hope of finding his better half. So when his beautiful soul-mate shows up and rogue vampires try to kill her, he does what any smart wolf would do: he saves her and takes her home, hoping to convince her that they belong together.

Author Of Today and Tomorrow

153734Today’s author is one of my utmost favorites. Her name is Ellen Shreiber most people know her for her Vampire Kisses Novels, she’s on Newyork Times bestseller list and is honestly one of the reasons I started writing about supernatural beings.

A little about Ellen Schreiber was an actress, she performed in a two-woman show before going on her own to become a stand-up comedian[1] before becoming an author; she was also a real-estate agent. She studied Shakespearean theater at theRoyal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and comedy at The Second City of Chicago, which is where she lived for five years. As a novelist she has had several works published in Europe and America. Her brother, Mark Schreiber, is also an author. He helped her start her writing career. The Vampire Kisses series was her first popular book series.

Ellen has started writing another book series known as Once in a Full Moon based on a human girl Celeste who falls for Brandon who is a human that turns into a wolf at night. The series ended in 2012 with a total of 3 books.

My favorite book by her is her first book Vampire Kisses. Its mainly about a girl name Raven In the hopelessly small town she calls “Dullsville,” sixteen-year-old Raven longs to become a vampire. She stands out among the soccer preps at school with her black nails, her black clothes, and her fascination with Anne Rice.

A haunted mansion in the town has new tenants after being empty for years. A mysterious family moves in, but strange rumors pop up about them all over town — they don’t like garlic, they have a strange accent, etc. Raven particularly longs to be acquainted with the family’s seventeen-year-old son who is seen only at night. Readers will enjoy her spying methods, including breaking into the mansion.

Surprises appear in every chapter. For example, Raven dresses preppy on Halloween instead of in her usual black and goes trick-or-treating. She also must take a boring part-time job, where her boss insists she not wear black anywhere and cover herself in pleasant red or pink accessories. Raven still manages to keep her unique style throughout.

Overall Raven is fairly normal, with a best friend, an annoying little brother (called “Nerdboy”), and school dances to attend. She stands up for what she wants, even when it’s unpopular, and she even enjoys a little romance with the mysterious Alexander at the mansion — though it’s more exciting than she expects.

VAMPIRE KISSES is a wonderfully funny story. Even non-vampire fans will enjoy this one
