    Title: Deathless
    Series: The Vein Chronicles #2
    Author: Anne Malcom
    Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
    Release Date: April 25, 2017


    My life was never black and white.

    Heck, it wasn’t even black, white and gray.

    Lines were not drawn between good and evil, and if they were, I would have jumped those suckers for fun.

    But now it was simpler. It wasn’t black and white. Or gray. It was only one thing.


    A crimson-tinted world. That was all I needed.

    All I wanted.


    Despite the war raging around us, or the secrets between us, there was nothing simpler than blood.

    It didn’t matter that it would be fatal.

    After all, it’s the things we’re not undead without that will kill us in the end.

    ARRANGED - RDL banner


    Kash Kamdar is the king of a peaceful but powerful island nation. As Loa Mali’s sovereign, he is always in control, the final authority. Until his mother uses an ancient law to force her son into marriage. His prospective queen is a buttoned-up intellectual, nothing like Kash’s usual party girl. Still, from the moment of their forced engagement, he can’t stop thinking about her.

    Dayita Samar comes from one of Loa Mali’s most respected families. The Oxford-educated scientist has dedicated her life to her country’s future. But under her staid and calm exterior, Day hides a few sexy secrets of her own. She is willing to marry her king, but also agrees that they can circumvent the law. Just because they’re married doesn’t mean they have to change their lives. It certainly doesn’t mean they have to fall in love.

    After one wild weekend in Dallas, Kash discovers his bride-to-be is more than she seems. Engulfed in a changing world, Kash finds exciting new possibilities for himself. Could Day help him find respite from the crushing responsibility he’s carried all his life? This fairy tale could have a happy ending, if only they can escape Kash’s past…

    Review: Deathless

    Deathless Deathless by Anne Malcom
    My rating: 5 of 5 stars

    Phenomenal! It’s one word but I think it sums up how truly amazing this book was perfectly. Similar to the awesomeness that was FATAL HARMONY, Anne Malcom gave us more bang for our buck. Incredible characters (Isla and Thorne were still badass), interesting side characters you can’t help but want to know more about (who doesn’t love Duncan, Scott and Sophie?), surprising (and not so surprising) plot twists, and a whole lot more.

    The author has such a compelling way of writing that pulls you into the story. It’s like watching a live-action film that you never want to end. Although Isla drove me up the wall (I wasn’t shocked by this), I couldn’t wait to see what she would say or do next. Or what would happen to her because it seemed like home girl couldn’t catch a break.
    ”I’ll not make any promises, mostly since I never make promises because I don’t like present Isla making future Isla’s decisions for her. I find it rude.”

    Honestly I don’t know what else to tell you without revealing too much. If you love a story that has well-developed characters, descriptive world building, an intricately detailed plot, full of vamps, slayers, demons, witches and wolves, then start THE VEIN CHRONICLES series. It’s all that and so much more.
    ”If evil is your heart, your soul, then I’m evil too, baby. And no fuckin’ way is it wretched. Even if it is, your wretched heart is mine forever. And my wretched heart is yours.”

    My review of Fatal Harmony.
