My life was never black and white.
Heck, it wasn’t even black, white and gray.
Lines were not drawn between good and evil, and if they were, I would have jumped those suckers for fun.
But now it was simpler. It wasn’t black and white. Or gray. It was only one thing.
A crimson-tinted world. That was all I needed.
All I wanted.
Despite the war raging around us, or the secrets between us, there was nothing simpler than blood.
It didn’t matter that it would be fatal.
After all, it’s the things we’re not undead without that will kill us in the end.

Deathless, the second book in the Vein Chronicles series, by Anne Malcom brought us back into the life of everyone’s favorite gorgeous, snarky, vampire fashionista, Isla. There is nothing I love more than a strong heroine, and Isla does not disappoint! Whether she is saving her loved ones from certain death, training little girls to fight monsters, ripping someone’s limbs off, or verbally annihilating her enemies, she is the epitome of a badass female character.

At the end of Fatal Harmony, her undead life was in jeopardy, so I have been eagerly anticipating this book ever since! In this installment, we find out her fate, more about her relationship with Thorne, and the origins of vampires and slayers. Isla holds a grudge, makes some dietary changes, and is as hilarious as ever. Thorne is alpha af. Sophie’s magic evolves. Duncan is his sexy Scottish self. Scott is the ever faithful sidekick, and Rick wants what he can’t have as per usual. I can’t really say much else about the plot without giving anything away, but there was more than a few twists, turns, and shocking revelations.

Deathless is a solid sequel filled with action, suspense, witty banter, and pop culture references. The plot is much more complex than that of its predecessor, and Isla continues to be my favorite thing about the series. As much as I enjoyed the story, I did have some problems with it. There were way too many information dumps, the romance wasn’t as strong, there was a lot of unnecessary angst, and the book took me FOREVER to get through. That being said, I’m still invested in the characters, and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. If you like strong female characters, sarcasm, violence, and vampires, or if you read and loved Fatal Harmony, this one’s for you!
