Book Review: Immortal Wars

A bloody war is raging across the oceans, with the Pirate Federation and the Nocturnals allied against the renegade Vampirates led by Sidorio and a heavily pregnant Lady Lola.

Meanwhile, Connor and Grace Tempest each have their own important roles to play- He as a pirate warrior at the heart of the battle, she as a powerful healer working with the war-wounded. As the twins face their greatest challenges yet, old allies and former foes return for the ultimate battle...

Immortal War (Vampirates #6) by Justin Somper
Paperback, 401 pages
Published 2011 by Simon & Schuster UK

I was getting crazy from the waiting for this book! I just really love the series and after the last one, i had to read the next one fast.

Twists, action, killing...a lot of killing and blood actually and a few drops of romance and mystery make this book even better than the rest. I don't think something is missing from this book. The blending of young adult with a more darker environment, violence (that how vampires are you know...), magic, kick ass characters, how even small and not that important characters grow up and have their own little parts, sad moments, the fact that is war and not all good guys will live happily ever after and so many other things is unbelievable. You never get tired or bored. There is always something going on without being too much for one book, at the same time.

Main change for me is how much i liked both, Grace and Connor in this one. I usually liked Grace or Connor at some, depends how they change through the story. But i finally, we see how they grow up and matured and i loved both the good and bad sides of them. They are not perfect, they are not the same and they don't afraid to accept that.

Of course another big part of the book are our fellow bad guys, which are really mean. Especially Lola who scares me to death! She is just so mean, and bad and vicious! I highly doubt she loved Sidorio, even though he was the evil husband. I really wanted someone to hit her or something...i can't say she didn't get what she deserved. On the other hand i felt a sympathy for Sidorio. He might was a bad guy, but he was kind of an honorable man..or better vampire :p

Immortal War is the most epic of all the books. Sadly is the last one of the series (still some questions left unanswered - how dare you Mr.Somper!). If you haven't try the series yet, you should. I know i had fun and enjoyed each one of them for different reasons each one.
