Once one of the oldest dhampirs in existence, Saeed now faces a treacherously uncertain future as a vampire. He believes that the only thing that can restore his position within his coven and tether his lost soul is the flame-haired fae who is destined to be his mate.

Cerys Bain is a soul thief. She is feared by those who dwell in the supernatural realm--and hopelessly bound to the ruthless mage Rinieri de Rege. The raw, sensual vampire who enters her world is both a threat and an intoxicating temptation: No one has ever made Cerys feel the way Saeed does. But to claim their fate as soulmates, Saeed must first find a way to free Cerys from Rin. Is their desire worth the risk of certain destruction--and eternal doom?

I've been really enjoying this series. I don't often read vampire romance anymore, unfortunately I've gotten a little tired of them, but for some reason I really enjoy reading Kate Baxter's The Last True Vampire series! 

I really enjoy her writing and the characters she writes about. Each book moves the main thread along while still gives you a individual story. You can't ask for more. Or could you?

At first I couldn't remember Saeed. It bugged me trying to figure out who he was. Then it finally hit me. I have no clue how I could have forgotten him, but it happens. And believe me it wasn't because he was one of those characters you quickly forget about, I really enjoyed him. It was me, all me. I sometimes mix characters up. Ha! 

I was so sad for Cerys. Her life for a long, long time has been shit! Having someone control your every move isn't fun or life fulfilling. You really wanted her to find happiness and to be free, her own person. 

The wonderful part is that both Saeed and Cerys is each others everything! How wonderful is that? Together they can take on anyone, and have. Both have their own issues and doubts that they have to work through and by the end do so. 

You can read The Lost Vampire as a stand alone but I very much enjoyed reading them in order even if it did take a chapter to remember Saeed. I just feel the story reads better having read the ones before. 

If you've read The Lost Vampire or any other books by Kate Baxter I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

  1. oh I read book one and LOVED it. I am not as hyped up on vampires as I used to be. I tender to like shifters more. However I just adore this authors writing and can't wait to get my hands on this book. Lovely review.
