My Review

*I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
Amara didn't begin life as a vampire, but she sure is going to make the best of it by any means necessary.  Ruthlessness is the name of the game and Amara is quickly becoming an expert. 
This is not a shimmery sweet vampire story.  On the contrary, Immortal Beginnings: Amara is filled with plotting, vengeance, blood and lust.  Werewolves, vampires and gladiators abound from forest to colosseum and everyone is looking to get the upper hand.  The style is neutral and matter of fact leaving the reader to form their own opinions about the characters and in the end there is no good and evil; just a bunch of paranormals trying to gain supremacy.
Happy Reading!
