    I received a copy in exchange for an honest review When I first heard of the Immortality Cure it was the premise that made me curious, I mean have you ever read about a vampire that gets cured of her vampirism? It just sounded to original and I knew I had to read it. The Immortality Cure lives up to what it promises, it's a fun urban fantasy book about vampire Henri who suddenly is no longer a vampire. And she badly wants to become a vampire again.

It just sounded to original and I knew I had to read it. The Immortality Cure lives up to what it promises, it's a fun urban fantasy book about vampire Henri who suddenly is no longer a vampire. And she badly wants to become a vampire again. Soon she's caught up in a murder mystery while trying to find a way to become a vampire again. It's mostly an urban fantasy, with a bit of mystery thrown in. There is no romance, at least not yet. A few possible hints that it might happen in the next book, but I am not sure yet. I thought the mystery was a nice touch, although it wasn't as good as some of the mysteries I read, it still added something extra to the book. And there were a few interesting twists and turns towards the end. Enough plot threads are left open at the end for the next book, but the murder mystery does get solved. I liked how the book dealt with the topic of Immortality. The vampires are pretty much what you would expect from vampires, but the existence of a cure adds something new to the plot. Vampires don't want to become human again and are afraid of the cure, while others would love to be human again. Having Henri be a human who was a vampire made for an interesting perspective as she now has to deal with all the human inconveniences and knows what it was like to be a vampire. Henri was a nice enough main character, she had an unique perspective seeing as she was a vampire until recently. And it was interesting to see her deal with being human now and how she saw the vampires. I just would've liked to see a bit more of her character and get to know her better. I would say this book is mostly story focused and I just finished a character driven book before this, so that's probably why it felt like that was a bit lacking here. There was something she did later in the book that bothered me a bit, but luckily it bothered her as well. It just felt wrong. And a side character that suddenly had a bit of a personality change. There are some interesting side characters introduced and I am looking forward to seeing more of them in the next book. Especially Naha and Caz, it seems like there is more to them than what we've seen so far. One thing that bothered me a bit is how halfway maybe a bit later in the book there is a bit of world building added that seemed so normal for the characters that I didn't get why this wasn't mentioned from the start. And then there is nothing that gets done with this piece of world building, so I wonder why it was there. Maybe for the next book? There's also a plot line that is left a bit open at the end were I hope we'll see more of in the next book, although it might just end here, who knows. To summarize: I enjoyed the Immortality Cure, the premise is very interesting and original. I liked seeing how the topic of the Immortality Cure was handled. Henri offer an unique perspective as she's a human who used to be a vampire and I liked seeing her point of view. I just had hoped for a bit more character depth, but that might be because I just finished a very character driven book and this one is more story focused. The vampires are pretty typical for what you expect of vampires, but the immortality cure showed how they would react when something threatens that immortality and how they react to Henri. It bothered me a bit how a piece of world building was added pretty late in the book as I felt like it could've been introduced earlier. The mystery was a fun addition and there are some interesting twists and turns at the end. I am looking forward to the second book!

    I loved this story! It was really interesting with a unique twist on vampires. I really liked seeing the story from the eyes of a vampire turned human, especially one like Henri Dunn. The myriad of characters she encounters throughout the story were enjoyable to read about. Each one had their quirks and dark pasts, which intrigued me to say the least. I wanted to know more about each one. I quickly burned through this story and I can't wait to continue the story so I scooped up books 2 and 3. The I loved this story!

The murder-mystery feel to this story really added a lot of suspense, though I had a couple of suspects in mind, I didn't guess the culprit was until it was revealed. Can't wait to read the next book already and am a total instafan of this author. Great stuff.

Well, while trying to help a newly turned vampire adjust, Henri was attacked by the girl's girlfriend who is also a scientist and who had developed a cure for vampirism. Now Henri is an outcast, struggling to craft out a living for herself that is until one day she receives a visit from the scientist who ruined her life. It seems someone has broken into her lab, killed her partner and stolen the drugs including the one curing vampirism. As Henri disposed of the body it puts her in contact with Cazimir a vampire who basically controls his own little slice of heaven. Before Henri can locate the killer and retrieve the missing drugs a vampire is killed by someone who uses one of the drugs. Now Henri is being blamed and she only has a short time to solve the case, continue to hold down a job, pay rent before she is killed. My, my, my. What is a former vampire to do? The plot for this story was quite unexpected and unique. I found myself mesmerized by Henri 's plight. She is kind, considerate and definitely no nonsense kind of girl. My only complaint is that this book would have been great with a little infusion of humor. It made this an even better read for me. Hopefully future installments will make this an added touch.

    Life's choices - free and imposed A very good read if you are into vampire stories with a twist. What happens when you return to humanity and have to solve a crime with vampires being the most likely offender? Not really my thing - if the detecting had been stronger this might have changed my thinking. However if you are into vampire stories then should suit very well. I got this in a giveaway.

    Immortality Cure Interesting read with a very different take on protagonist. Murder and mayhem ensues and the killer isn't reveille until the very end. Getting the next book in the series, will she ever get her fangs back? Immortality Cure Interesting read with a very different take on protagonist.

    This was a very refreshing take on vampires. It's so hard to find a vampire story, that hasn't been told countless times, and the author has done just that! This story was unique, and I loved it for that. It's part vampy, wolfy, and science experimenty. So, the story takes place in Seattle, as an angsty, ex-vampire, waitress tries to wait tables, and not kill annoying patrons. LOL. Henri's thoughts are just hilarious!!

Henri's thoughts are just hilarious!! It was really interesting to hear Henri talk about things she used to do as a vampire, and what she does now as a human for the 2nd time. The way her life has been drastically altered without her consent and trying to find her new self, I found just fascinating. I loved how the author would flash between her old vampire side, and her new compassionate human side. You can definitely feel Henri's struggle as she tries to find herself. The lore behind supernaturals in this is story is definitely different. How vampires are made, their blood bags, and how they form circles. It was nice to see a new take on that. No stakes, oh I'm sparkly..you must love me, no vampire mind games, no I'm gonna kill you...but I can't enter your house. I found those irritating in other novels, and felt more connected to the characters without that being the case. The lab science experiments was rather exciting. Ray actually managed to make weres, Neha managed to cure vampires, so it makes you wonder what else science is capable of. It will be interesting to see were this goes in further volumes. I am also really curious how Henri will test out her new abilities. As for the cover, it is beautifully done, and I am drawn to it. For some reason, I was thinking this was going to have an Asian theme to it. I don't know why, maybe it's the makeup on the model, but it looks like she's Asian to me. xD Overall, this was a nice, unique, vampire story, that I can not wait to see where it goes. I enjoyed the authors writing style, even though there were some spelling/grammar mistakes, I can live with that. Very eager to see where this series goes from here, and what other supernatural stores the author comes up with. **I received a copy of the e-book from the author, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review**

    I chose to give four stars because it was a really great book. The only reason it did not receive five is because I have read books that wowed me a tad more. I love the storyline, I had not read the blurb, I love the authors work so just bought it. I love vampires and werewolves so this quirky twist got me hooked, I started reading last night and finished at 2am. I love Henri and hearing how she had to learn things that would come naturally to us. I am hoping there is more love hate chemistry goin I chose to give four stars because it was a really great book.
