Jude, the reluctant King of his Immortal family, has found his Queen, and now they are ready to face their destiny, but first, they have to survive Marie and Ludwig's turbulent relationship woes. The family of eight set out together with three Wudges in search of keys that will help them find the Wudge's son and clarify the Immortals' reason for existing. As far as he knows, Jude is the first of his kind. He made a family for himself, starting with Marie and adding Ludwig. As the family of eight follows the vibrations felt by the Wudges, they travel worldwide and have unexpected time-travel experiences where each finds their own personal key. While cooped up in the cabin of their plane, Angelina hears Marie and Ludwig's story. A story that is surprising and also emotional. We are also introduced to the villains in the story and how they have come into contact with some of the Immortals through time. When one of the Immortals is lured out of Jude's New Orleans mansion by a Siren, the scene is set for a showdown not seen before.
A History of Vampires: Legend and Lore by Amanda Lewis is an exciting fun-filled ride of a lifetime. Where the first book was more serious, the second is filled with sassy women and good humor. The first book is an introduction to Jude's world and his family of Immortals, but the second book is an action-packed adventure filled with time travel and people from myth and legend. I was so caught up in the book that I did not want to put it down. Ms. Lewis writes a story that flows effortlessly from the pages, creating a rich and fulfilling reading experience. There is not one curse word or explicit sex in the book, and in my opinion, the author successfully created a good clean fantasy adventure that anyone can read. I just loved this book. There is so much growth and personality in the characters. It was a great experience to escape into.
