Immortal Becoming: Review

From Goodreads:
Shane Einar is a five hundred year old Volaticus Elven warrior, sworn to duty and honor. His species has inhabited the earth since the beginning of time. The sources of vampire, elf and fairy myths, Volaticus are in reality something altogether different. He never expected to meet Jess Reed. A female living amongst humanity completely unaware that she is Hulven, a human/Elven hybrid race of Volaticus, or that she is on the cusp of Becoming into her Elven traits. Shane should turn Jess over to the Symbiosis of Species Council, SOSC. His attraction to her along with her ability to enrapture him with a smile bars him from it. He rightly suspects that this female is his bloodmate. 

Jess had always been psychic, a painful and confusing fact of her life. With Shane’s loving support she learns to control her abilities and discovers the psychically enlightened species that share this world. 

Together they sacrifice the power of their bloodmating in the battle to save females from breeding cages under the control of an Elven rogue.

My Review:
What a great book! I really enjoyed the mythology, with the 3 enlightened races, and all the cool things that they could do!  And I really enjoyed Jess and Shane's romance, it was pretty heavy duty, with a deep love, and the whole rare bloodmate thing, well, that was really cool!

I wish there'd been a bit of a confrontation with Jess's adoptive mom, because the character did say that she was worried, and then had more time with her brother and her friend, that would've been nice, but she was busy with the whole "save the females and the children they were broodmares for" situation, and all, and her Becoming.

I really enjoyed the plot, where the action upped, and the romance was really good, with the different species, and the various stories, and I really loved, so I hope you guys check it out!

During my hectic life of working and raising children the call of a story in my mind was not always welcome. The niggling character or plot that refused to leave my thoughts until I would sit down a write something … a synopsis, character profile, anything to relieve the creative pressure. With my children grown, and my husbands loving support I dove head first into the depths of my passion and lifelong dream … writing. It was like a floodgate opened in my soul.

I look out at the Rocky Mountain from my window in Utah. I have been blessed with an amazing family and wonderful friends. My husband and I own a small local coffee shop. I enjoy boating golfing, reading and spending time with my family.
