Stealing Time by Elisa Paige
It wasn't that she wanted to live forever. She just didn't want to die.
When artist James Wesley realizes Evie Reed is dying, he is so moved by the beautiful reporter's determination to live that he makes her immortal - a vampire, like him. She's the woman he's been waiting over 150 years for. Though initially shocked by the change, Evie quickly embraces her second chance at life, and love.
Just as James and Evie begin to define eternity together, a zealot breaks an ancient treaty, threatening a peace between humans and vampires that has stood for a thousand years. And when he focuses his hatred on Evie, the immortal lovers find themselves swept up in a deadly supernatural war...
What could have been just another vampire romance novel turned into something infinitely more appealing in this story which, at its heart, is about two people falling in love. Although, there were a few clichés in that you would expect in a vampire novel like instantaneous love, it was genuinely nice to read a book without too much tortured teenage angst!
The story just compels you on, there is quite a lot of violence in this book and it makes a change from vampire stories without the blood and guts. These scenes are well thought out and you can imagine them visually rather than a series of events that happened one after the other. As well as this there are a few sex scenes which could make you feel like your reading a Mills and Boon novel, but that lessens as the book gets into the second storyline of a war between vampires and humans.
You are reading the novel from the main character Evie’s perspective but the author tries to give us many examples of how the other characters interact or are feeling at a time, so it feels like it is more rounded on the whole and this makes the book enjoyable to read.
There are some good twists that are slightly predictable but no less enjoyable for that. I look forward to the sequel Killing Time as I really enjoyed the character arches and how they grow to become the unit that the book ends on as well as wanting to know how it will all eventually end.
