"Interesting vampire tale"
A year ago Mara escaped an attack, but the effects it
had on her were devastating. In time she came to believe
she was assaulted by a vampire and to see if her theory was
right, she traveled from the United States to Europe to see
if she could obtain proof that vampires really exist. In
Spain, while trying to translate an archaic language in a
book she meets Adam who helps her in her quest.
Adam is an Immaculate, born of two immortal parents
and brought up believing that he is the anointed one,
chosen to kill the First Father, one of the original
vampires. Mara and Adam know from almost the start that
they are soul mates but before they can plan a future
together, he and two other Immaculates must perform the
impossible and destroy the evil First Father.
Kate Hill is one of the more creative authors writing
supernatural romance today. THE IMMACULATE is a
supernatural techno-thriller but there is plenty of romance
imbued in the story line. There are also touches of humor
as the heroes bicker amongst themselves and with their
mates. Ms. Hill's mythos on vampires, hybrids, and their
customs is so vivid that if one doesn't know better, one
would think the writer is a sociologist proving vampires
are a genuine species.
