Review: Forever Fearless by Jeff Erno

The Forever Vampire saga continues…
In the aftermath of unspeakable slaughter, Robbie and Colt have escaped to the wilds of Alaska to face their immortal future. Things aren't so certain for their mortal enemies, Dylan and Issa, Matarian soldiers sworn to hunt them down and slaughter them.
Dylan is poised to begin his first vampire hunt and wants Issa as his partner, but Issa is far more concerned with finding his brother and tracking down the blond boy who nearly died on the battlefield. The entire cast from book one reunites in this thrilling continuation of their story, joined by a host of new faces--friends and foes--whose lives somehow weave together as they cross paths in their efforts to battle evil and attain their own happiness. Humans, Shifters, Daywalkers, and Purebloods confront each other with the guidance of three enigmatic sisters--one a Maenad, one a necromancer, and the other a human witch. Plot twists and surprises mark the paths of these diverse characters, forever fearless in their quest to cling to all they hold dear.

I read Forever Young, the first in this series, last week and I enjoyed it - a lot - but this book feels as though it has gone up a whole notch in the writing. I found it difficult to put down once I'd started it, the characters really drew me in to the story. I'm not sure why exactly I prefer this one to the first, it just seemed to flow better. The characters came to life just that bit more, the storyline was a tiny bit more gripping. Nothing huge - it was just as if the author felt more comfortable with the whole book this time round.

I liked how in this book we are introduced to a wider range of supernatural creatures as well as the characters we know and love from book 1. I can see this becoming a longer series - I have no idea if Jeff Erno has plans in that direction but I can absolutely see many of these characters with their own stories.

Throughout this book we follow several different character journeys until they combine at the end. I invested a lot in all of them and where I'll often have one or two favourites, I truly didn't this time. I enjoyed them all and wanted to know all their stories.If you enjoy vampire stories I'd say give this one a go - and if you're not sure but want something easy to read but that pulls you into the story give this one a go too. Jeff Erno is an author whose contemporary work I already enjoy - and now I know I enjoy his fantasy stories too I'm a happy unicorn.

A copy of this book was given in exchange for an honest review.
