Tour Stop: Immortalis Review Tour

Immortalis Carpe Noctem (Immortalis, #1)Explore the emotional upheaval that is the transformation from human to vampire. 
Bleeding to death after brutal mugging on the campus of UNLV, Twenty-five year old Alyssa, is rescued by the cold and aloof, vampire, Lysander. Taking pity on her, he shares the gift-and curse-of immortality. She awakens as a vampire and is soon devastated by harsh realities of her new way of life: An unyielding thirst for blood as well as the loss of her friends, her independence, and her humanity.
As if having her humanity stripped away was not enough to make life interesting, Alyssa finds out her "turning", did not go unnoticed by the rest of undead society. Old enemies; an ancient sect of vampire hunters, known as the Acta Sanctorum, as well as a powerful Vampire mistress, each set plans in motion to destroy both Alyssa and Lysander.
Only by accepting her new-found immortality, seizing the night, will Alyssa hope to survive. She and Lysander must fight together against two sets of enemies bent on destroying them both.

So, I was supposed to read all of the books, but medical problems got in the way, so I could only get the first one done.
I will say one thing though. Im glad I did. This book was unique and well written, with few mistakes.  I finished it in about two days, and I will reccomend it to ANYONE.
The thing that irked me was how quickly they said "I love you". I get that Lysander is a hottie and all, but what happened to make them feel the way they feel?
I would have loved to delve deeper into the world Salidas created, learning more about the vampire mythology and the saints that hunt them.
I would also love to learn if anger management is something that all new borns are supposed to deal with, Haha. What? Its true. Its like Alyssa lost her temper at the drop of a dime. She was either happy, sad, or angry. It got annoying at times, but then at some points it was appropriate.
I have no doubt that the two other books in the series will be just as great as this one, if not better, and if I am not mistaken, werwolves are introduced in one of the books. -hint hint-
Who doesnt love a big bad werewolf?
Anywhooo.... I would love to add this book onto my actual book shelf, instead of having the E-Book copy. I think I smell another book on my list....?
Keep up the good writing, Salidas, and to everyone else..... READ THE DAMN BOOK! Its absolutely worth it.
My Rating:

(5 out of 5)

And, for everyone who is interested in this book, you can go Here and there is an option under the picture to read the book. I dont know how much you can read from it, but enjoy.
I think that the author would appreciate comments, too. -just saying-
