Soul mate--or tragic fate?

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?

 What did I like about The Lost Vampire?

I’ve become a firm fan of Ms Baxter’s writing style. Her books are very easy to read and I love the way she creates her stories. I like the pace of her tales, how the plot evolves and the urban fantasy world that she’s built. I think that the balance in her stories between great banter, hold-your-breath tension, kickass fighting and steamy sex scenes are really good.

The Lost Vampire did not disappoint!

Those of you who have read my reviews before know that I am an old romantic at heart, so the “two halves of one soul reunited” love story part of this tale satisfied my mushy side but it was the real relationship reservations, concerns and the obstacles that both Cerys and Saeed experience and have to overcome that adds a very real and contemporary feel to this love story.

I must also mention that it’s not just our main characters that have this level of depth; every character that Ms Baxter includes has their own set of idiosyncrasies that they cease to be just filler characters but become just as real as our main couple.

The Lost Vampire made me chuckle out loud, wipe tears from my eyes, had me on the edge of my seat with tension and gave me yummy flutters of arousal; in short – I was gripped from the first page to the last.

Was there anything I didn’t like?

Absolutely nothing, that’s why it got 5 stars!

Ms Baxter does a good job of weaving any pertinent information from previous books into this one so I don’t think that it’s vital to your enjoyment of this story to have read the previous books, however, as with most series, when you read novels in sequence you get to know the supporting characters and their world thus adding insights and the comfort of familiarity.

Basically, what I’m saying is…

This is another amazing instalment of what has become one of my favourite paranormal romance series; I loved it!

Content Warning:

There are scenes of explicit sexual content and graphic violence in this book. Therefore, I’d only recommend it to adults who aren’t offended by scenes of this sort.

I’d recommend The Lost Vampire to lovers of adult paranormal romance. Readers who want their heroines to be intelligent, witty and independent. Fans who need their heroes strong, sexy with a big heart just waiting to be unleashed.
