Immortal Confessions by Tara Fox Hall

A 'Promise Me' Origins Tale

At the turn of the 19th century, former aristocrat turned lowly vampire Devlin Dalcon gets by on his supernatural charms until he meets bride-to-be Annabelle. Smitten by Anna's forthrightness, intellect, and bravery, Devlin risks his life to spirit her away to Fontainebleau, France. There Devlin begins his ascent to power in a desperate bid for wealth and social standing for himself and Anna.

Forging alliances with other supernatural leaders, he usurps the vampire Lord of Fontainebleau, amassing many enemies during his brief reign. Within a few years, he and Anna are again forced to flee for their lives to America. Living in hiding, Devlin is determined to amend his ways. But when tragedy strikes, Devlin's dark side, never fully extinguished, emerges rampant, securing him the bloody throne of America even as his malevolence and loneliness consumes him.

My Review:
    This book started reallly slow for me. I was just about to give up, as up until about halfway into the book it was just a vampire who fell in love with a human, how he lived as a pauper, plying his wares to make it, so on and so forth. It was kind of like watching The Queen of the Damned when Morius takes Lestat to the beach and he plays for the gypsy girl. That whole scene was slow. Moving on, about that time, he came to know power, with his human lover by his side. This is where it gets good. You will get to meet Werebats, Werebears, Witches, even a Goblin during Devlin's story. You will also get to witness a love like no other, betrayal, heartbreak, and lust. Lots of lust. You will get to see how quick someone can have power, but also how quick it can be taken away. By the end of this book, I didn't want to put it down. It won me over. I hope you will give it a chance so it can win you over too.
