Immortal Beloved by James Simon

Released: October 23, 2010
Publisher: CreateSpace

A beautiful woman with a divine gift, a vampire tortured by his immortal curse, an undying love that has traveled through time and someone wants to make sure it doesn't continue... Spring 1534, Renaissance Rome Italy. Young lovers Tommaso and Victoria are accosted one evening while leaving a party being held for the artist Michelangelo. Victoria is brutally murdered, her blood drained and body left lifeless next to Tommaso who has also been drained, but having tasted his attacker's blood, he has been mistakenly turned into a vampire. In modern day New York City, Tommaso, is reunited with his lost love, Victoria. She is as she was all those years ago; young and beautiful with her life before her, but with no memories of their past together. Victoria has a gift, unbeknownst to her, for helping living creatures and this gift has made her the target of a secret, ancient society. He has to convince her of their past together, and the only way is to drink her blood and pass his memories onto her.

What I thought:

I really couldn't get into this story. The story itself was just alright for me, but it was the writing style that really turned me off. Jumping scenes for back story broke up the flow of the narration. I felt like the author put too much detail into the back story than what would have really been necessary to get the idea. For others, this might be appealing, to get the whole story. For me, I just didn't like it.

I really wanted to like to like this one, as it seemed very interesting from the blurb and from other reviews. A part of it might also be that it did center around a male character first person narration as well.

My Rating:

Aww the blurb sounded so good. I guess I'll pass it up. I have had experience with jumping back and forth in time and did not enjoy it.

Aimee said...

I don't enjoy it either, I forget what the original story was about and then I have to try and figure it out when it jumps again... sigh. It didn't seem seamless to me to truly relax and read.
