Blood Bath & Beyond
Sarah Dearly is adjusting to life as a fledgeling vampire, satisfying her cravings at vampire-friendly blood banks. But when her fiancé Thierry takes a job with the Ring—the secret council in charge of keeping vampires in line—Sarah’s about to get more than a taste of danger…
Being engaged to a centuries-old master vampire can be challenging—especially when he takes a job with the Ring. Thierry’s in for fifty years of nonstop travel and deadly risk. It’s enough to make any woman reconsider the wedding…any woman except Sarah, that is.
Travelling to Las Vegas for his first assignment, they encounter a child beauty pageant contestant from hell, as well as a vampire serial killer leaving victims drained of blood, potentially exposing the existence of vampires to the whole world. But when Thierry’s truly ancient history comes back to haunt him, and he’s accused of a crime he didn’t commit, it’s up to Sarah to clear his name before their immortal lives come to an end.
Sarah and Thierry’s story continues in this book, fast-forwarded to a few months later, with a short recap of what has been happening with the other characters from the previous series. The story is about solving mysteries revolving around the Vampire world, as per the series’ title, Immortality Bites Mystery.
I’m still disappointed with Sarah because she still not a badass character. I wished some of her nightwalker abilities have stayed with her. Nevertheless, we might see her new talent in the next book. Hopefully, that’s not it! Please give us more, Sarah.
Bled & Breakfast
Fledgeling vampire Sarah Dearly knew what she was getting into when she married master vampire Thierry de Bennicoeur. As an agent of the Ring, Thierry is sent all over the world to solve vampire crimes and keep them secret from humans. And now Sarah’s on the job with him—for better or worse.
Right after their wedding in Las Vegas, Sarah and Thierry get their next assignment: Three vampires have gone missing in Salem, Massachusetts, and they need to find out why.
Their contact in Salem turns out to be a local lothario with a penchant for witches, but before he can help them, he suddenly goes up in smoke—leaving behind nothing but a stain on the ground and a seemingly impossible mystery.
Did a witchy ex-mistress cast a deadly spell, or is there something even more sinister happening to the vampires of Salem? Getting to the truth may require raising the undead, with a little help from the owners of a vampire-friendly bed and breakfast. But uncovering Salem’s darkest secrets may drag some of Thierry’s own past into the light.
✅ Time travelling
✅ Best plot twists
What a remarkable story! I couldn’t stop reading it and had to force myself to stop when the tense moment subsided enough for me to get away and go to bed. I worried about Thierry’s well-being and Sarah’s safety and anxious to find out about the missing timeline. It’s the best one in the series!
From Fear to Eternity
Newlywed vampires Sarah and Thierry de Bennicoeur have their whole undead lives ahead of them. And with Thierry’s job as a consultant for the Ring sending them across the globe to solve one vampire crisis after another, eternity may never have a dull moment.
Sarah was hoping the honeymoon would literally last forever, but when Thierry receives a mysterious invitation to an auction held in an old Beverly Hills mansion, it’s clearly time to get back to work.
Thierry hopes to win a powerful amulet containing a wish-granting djinn that has eluded him for centuries. Unfortunately, Atticus Kincade, head of the vampire council, also has his eye on the item.
When the auction’s host reveals his unpleasant history with Thierry, and Sarah discovers a talking head in the freezer, things get even weirder than usual. But when the amulet goes missing, and everyone is suddenly trapped inside the mansion, the undead guests find themselves in mortal danger—and Sarah had better be careful what she wishes for.
Some plots have me guessing until the end. But, not on the mystery to the talking head. I could see it from miles away 😉. The ending to the story was very satisfying. I’m pleased to have the conclusion to Veronique’s romance.
It seemed like almost all the characters we knew from the previous series – Immortality Bites had their romance life sorted out. But, what about Barkley? Sarah did mention him in this book and thought of pairing him with the lone wolf, but in the end, it seems like she might be with Sebastian.
Overall, it was a fun and easy read over both series.
It doesn’t look like the author will continue with another book in this series since this was published almost seven years ago, and there is no mention of it. But, who knows 🙂. Adios Sarah!
It looks like there’s a new short novella published recently, but it’s only about 74 pages. I can’t be bothered to re-read the previous books to get into Sarah’s world again. But if you love the story and have yet to start with this series, you might as well read From Rags to Witches.
