Now settled in Manhattan, only two descendants of his union remain, Amanda and her brother, Ryan. After Amanda witnesses a savage murder in Central Park, she is determined to find the ethereal stranger who saved her life.

My Thoughts:
Immortal Obsession was a great vampire book. The author's writing style reminded me a lot of Anne Rice's. The plot had me turning pages late into the night wondering what was going to happen next. There were no plot holes or editing mistakes that I found. There were several plot twists and turns. I figured out one of them near the beginning of the book. One of the characters dies, and that took me by surprise. I was sad when it happened. I really liked the character. The cover looks beautiful. I like how the red/orange and dark blue look together. I also like that the fountain is on the cover, since it plays a big role in the book. I liked all of the characters. I think my favorite character was Michel. I liked his attitude and his fashion sense. He wasn't afraid to introduce Amanda into his world. He also gave Amanda a little push in the right direction by telling her to go drop the note off to Christian. Immortal Obsession was a wonderful book. I would definitely read it again. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I recommend it for fans of paranormal romance. I also recommend it for Anne Rice fans.

I give Immortal Obsession: 5/5.
