QUICK REVIEW: "Timeless" (Immortal Love series, book 1) - by Amy Richie

(Immortal Love series, book 1)
by Amy Richie

REVIEWED BY: Books4Tomorrow


After the earth is crippled by the asteroid Jewell, vampires come to the aid of the survivors. Some only want to help, others merely want to protect their way of life. And some simply have to be stopped.

Eva was created for one purpose, to kill notorious vampire Dominick Letrell. Neleh has devised a plan that cannot fail; travel back in time to when Dominick was his weakest and attack him there. Along with the help of David, the most intelligent vampire alive, the plan is set in motion. But then suddenly everything goes wrong and Eva is trapped in the past with no memory of why or how she got there. What happens when all the rules change?

Timeless is a story of betrayals and secrets and a love that will change everything.


What a spectacularly superb read! “Timeless” is one of those books I’ll be reading again and again.

As it is often the case, the beautiful cover caught my eye, but the blurb suggested it’s a romance novel, so I pushed it to the bottom of my to-be-read pile. I’m not a fan of romance – no sirree, not at all. So once I got around to reading this fantastic book, I was quite surprised to find that the cover blurb isn’t doing justice to this outstanding storyline.

“Timeless” is more than your average paranormal romance novel. It is an action-packed time travel adventure with a feisty, Lara Croft-type female lead, super-hot vampires that makes certain other vamps look like timid fairies; and it taps into every emotion the reader can possibly feel for characters in a book – love, hate, anger, fear, excitement, trepidation, relief – to name but a few.

Aside from a few grammar errors which can be easily overlooked, the story grabbed me from the very first word and I found it hard to put down; at the same time hoping it wouldn’t end. This is really one of those rare books where I actually liked every single character, as they were all so life-like and well-rounded. What I enjoyed most about it is that the romance was not the main focus of the story, but there’s still more than enough in it to leave any hardcore romance fan weak-kneed.

“Timeless” is a brilliantly written, fast-paced story that draws you into a future world, takes you back to the past, makes you fall in love, and then takes you back to the future again, to a world much different than the one we know. Amy Richie has crafted an unforgettable tale of love, betrayal, friendship and revenge that will leave the reader longing for more of her splendid writing.
