Some things never die. Hope. Heroes. Defiance.

Things take a strange turn for Dulcea, the elven enchantress turned war heroine and Dragonmistress, when a countryman’s betrayal lands her in enemy hands.

As she awaits her execution, a stranger with mysterious powers offers her another chance at life. Will she die here or risk what sinister fate he has in store for her?

Can Dulcea reclaim her rightful place and lead her army once more? Or does Krath, the man who travels the Realm of the Dead as one of its own, prove to be the obstacle that fells her rebellion?

… Or will this immortal vampire warrior turn out to be the best chance she has of defying the ancient evil arising in the west?

My Review:

Lady Dulcea, the elven enchantress is betrayed by one of her own men when he gives her up to the enemy. Dulcea is taken away to enemy territory and sentenced to death.

Dulcea is saved from death by a vampire, Lord Krath who kidnaps her and takes her back to his castle. She spends her time at the castle playing games with Lord Krath.

Dulcea bides her time with Lord Krath she believes that as long as she is breathing then there is always a chance or way to escape and make her way back home to expose the one person who betrayed her before he does it again. Can Dulcea find a way to escape from Lord Krath? Will she ever see her home again?

Dulcea and her people have been in war for many years. Immortal Defiance tells about the war with flashbacks in between Dulcea and Krath's time together.

My favorite parts of Immortal Defiance are the times spent with Dulcea and Krath. I loved seeing them together and sort of wished more for these two as a couple maybe. But I did enjoy learning about Dulcea and her background story of who she was it was very interesting.

If you enjoy war stories and vampires then Immortal Defiance just may be the book for you.

Author Bio:

“I live in my own little world. But it’s ok, they know me here.” (Who besides me has this fridge magnet; raise your hand!)

That’s sometimes what it feels like. Who says stories aren’t real? I live in the land of the Midnight Sun and Polar Nights, together with my husband and daughter, and a cast of fantasy characters running around in my head. It’s busy here. Care to stay and chat a while?

Laura Maybrooke is an 80s’ child, who works too much and writes too little, but who’ll never say no to a thrilling romance, a high fantasy adventure, or a cookbook full of delicious treats she’d like to bake one day.
