RED TIDE RISING

by Allie Gail

Ages 18+. Contains strong language, explicit sex and elements of horror. This book is the final installment in the Immortal Touch trilogy.

What good is immortality when every moment is agony?

The vampire Ash has returned from his watery grave, proving that death is merely a minor inconvenience. Picking up where he left off? That might not be as easy. Because someone else is vying for Sami’s attention – the last person he ever would have expected.

Fulfilling her desire for immortality seems the surest route to winning her favor. But for Sami, this gift will come at a terrible price. One simple lie of omission is all it takes to send her spiraling into a terminal state of madness. And as the last remnants of her sanity slip away, Ash can no longer deny that her maniacal behavior is putting them all at risk. His perfect angel has become a perfect liability.

But can he find it in his heart to destroy her?

excerpt

“Trust me?” he whispered.

 

“I trust you.” Her eyes fluttered shut as she waited for the sharp prick of the needle, the one that would send her into her last slumber as a human.

 

Instead she felt herself being lifted into the air, and even before the back of her head slammed against the hard packed sand, even before the warm water of the tidepool surrounded her, she knew she’d been deceived yet again.

 

Ash was straddling her body, both hands wrapped around her neck in a grip of steel as he held her head just beneath the water’s surface. The briny sting of saltwater in her nostrils sent panic rushing through her, and she began to struggle like a wild animal, kicking while beating at his arms and tearing at his flesh with her fingernails. It did no good other than to exhaust all her strength. The hands around her throat were immovable. He would not be budged.

 

A primitive scream escaped her in a short trail of bubbles, accomplishing nothing at all but to deprive her of what little breath she had left. The sapphire eyes that were coldly fixed on her seemed to blur and waver as the rippling water obstructed her vision. She felt dizzy. Her pulse banged out a violent tempo of terror.

 

Air! Oh God, I need air…I can’t breathe…please, for God’s sake, let go…let go…

 

In a final desperate bid for oxygen she inhaled reflexively, and her starving lungs ached and burned as they sucked in the stagnant seawater that mercilessly suffocated her.

 

The frenzied thrashing grew weaker. Her fingers slowly released their clench on his wrists as her body became limp and still. The pale light from the full moon above her dimmed and faded away, and a sleepy blanket of darkness began to cover her with its peaceful comfort.

 

So this was what it was like to die.

 

It wasn’t so bad, really.

 

Blinking once, she relaxed and succumbed to the darkness.

 

The last sight her mortal eyes took in before the twilight of death clouded them was his broad Cheshire grin, hovering just above the water’s surface.

review2

Our favorite immortals and humans are back for the third and final installment of the Immortal Touch Books. When we last left Ash in “Fire and Ash” he had been beheaded by his beloved Sami and sent to a watery grave. Through the benefits of immortal healing, Sami has brought him back and he is as bitter and mean as ever. I have to say I was disappointed in Samara/Sami. She started out as such a strong woman in the beginning. I was really hoping she would find herself and become that strong woman again.

While most of the book centers on Ash, Sami and Tristan, we still get to visit with Jules & Eva and meet our youngest immortal, Lina. There are plenty twists and turns in this final installment. There is one big surprise in the first part of the book which I think many of the fans of this series will enjoy. Some deaths will be welcomed while others will be mourned. The drama around Ash never stops. It was like getting on a merry-go-round and not being able to get off. And you really, really want to! It was exhausting at times to read.

The author has tied up all story lines in a way I believe most readers, including myself, will enjoy. Although I wished one of the characters would have gotten her happy ending (but didn’t), I’m glad one character did. After putting up with the ever moody Ash all those years, he deserved his HEA.

4 Fangs. While I loved the ending, the over dramatized writing around Ash was just too exhausting. That being said, I honestly think fans of the series will not be disappointed.
