Review: Immortal Prophecy by Samantha Adams

Immortal Prophecy

Author: Samantha Adams and Kay Fry

Publication Date: December 13th, 2011

Publisher: Little Bookworm

Genre: Paranormal



Immortals...The guardians of the human race are facing extinction and only one girl can help them. The Prophecy Girl… Her destiny has been written. Her fate has been sealed. But does she possess the courage and strength, she needs to lead the immortals into victory against the vampires, and to kill their leader, Vincent…before he kills her? There is only one thing that terrifies Alessandra more than the thought of going into battle against Vincent… James Carlisle. Can she overcome her greatest fear and give her heart and soul to this smoldering immortal?

My Thoughts: I really liked the story in this book. It focuses on Alessandra as she learns she is a half immortal and her destiny is to kill an evil vampire named Vincent, who happens to be trying to kill her first. She struggles to come to terms with destiny and tries to change her life and refuses, at first, to accept it. She  is a strong female character who won't let anyone push her around, something I really like. She wants to make her own life, but the outcome is already decided for her and once she can accept that, she can enjoy falling head over heals for her soulmate James. James and Ally are the perfect soulmates for each other and I look forward to seeing their relationship bloom.

I found most of the book to be a page turner where I just couldn't wait to see what happened next, but there was a bit of a dry patch in the middle where there isn't really all that much going on. It's more focusing on the relationship between Ally and James, which is good, it was just a bit dry. All in all, I am looking forward to seeing what comes next in the series, the cliffhanger was really good.

However, I would normally give a book like this a 4/5, since I really liked it, but I'll be going with a 3/5 because there's a few small issues that could be fixed. I believe this book needs another edit to fix a few minor issues. Sometimes it can be a little difficult to read. There's too little use of compound words, it wouldn't be so bad if it was just how one or two of the characters talked all the time, but it's not. There would be, in some cases, one character saying "it's" and then in the next sentence "it is" but there wouldn't be any emphasis on the "is". I think some of the wording could be fixed with a few more compound words, making for a smoother read. Sometimes I can see how there should be a bit of emphasis on the word, which should maybe be put into italics or something so the reader knows to put some emphasis there. Then there are other times where it seems a comma is missing, but that's easily fixed as well. If these little issues are fixed, I would be likely to give this book a 4/5 since the story is really good, it just needs a little polish.


  1. Yes! I completely agree! I'm looking forward to reading more in this series :)
