Hers is a story of love and betrayal that defies time and transcends mortality - but this tale cannot end until Lanny's demons are finally put to rest.

Review by wyvernfriend
In order to tell her story and how she ended up standing over a dead body that she admists to killing, Lanore McIlvrae kidnaps Dr Luke Finley the doctor who treats her in the ER and tells him the story while they run from the authorities to Canada.Alchemy turned Lanore from an ordinary girl to immortal so this isn't a vampire novel or any other really supernatural novel as such but it does have overtones of this scattered throughout. It has the feel of a supernatural novel but I didn't really feel for the characters. To be honest I didn't care if they lived or died and didn't really engage with them, it's not a bad read, it just didn't really fire me with enthuaism.
