Book Details

Immortal Craving by Kendra Leigh Castle
Dark Dynasties #4
Published: January 29, 2013 by Forever
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Wild, uncontrollable, and powerful, the lion-shifting Rakshasa were hunted down by vicious rival vampires who feared their dark, magical abilities. Somehow one survived, and now, after centuries of hiding, Tasmin Singh reemerges as fierce and fearless as ever at the door of the Lilim queen, seeking answers . . . and sanctuary.

The human best friend to a vampire queen, Bay Harper traded her quiet, comfortable life for a world filled with immortal assassins, warring werewolves . . . and this hauntingly sexy shifter. Only Bay’s gentle touch can subdue Tasmin’s inner demons, even as he brings out a passion and sensuality she never imagined she could feel. But when a bloody struggle threatens to tear them apart, can Bay risk everything on her faith in him-or will his dark side be stronger than even their all-consuming desire?

My Review

I was sad to have this series come to an end, but I certainly enjoyed it. Tasmin’s story was heartbreaking because you could tell how much he was bothered by losing control. Tasmin’s story was so interesting, being the last Rakshasa alive and his struggle with his possession was written so well. Tasmin was such an honorable man and it was heartbreaking to watch him lose control of himself and know that he was a threat to everyone he cared about.

Bailey knew that she didn’t fit into the world of vampires but was desperately trying to hold onto her friendship with Lily and then Tasmin shows up and she’s drawn even deeper into their world. My only complaint centers on how Bailey feels about the idea of being immortal; she’s thought about it ever since finding out about her friend Lily. I don’t want to give anything away but as the reader we know how Bailey really feels and this contradicts some of her actions later in the book.

The overall conflict with Arsinoe felt a bit rushed and seemed like it was quickly wrapped up. There was also another enemy that wasn’t found and conquered and that was just left open ended. I think I read somewhere that the author hasn’t always been able to finish her books the way she wants due to publisher contracting so that might be why it feels like there were other books planned for this series.

3 stars – it was good
