FREE BOOK Review: Immortal Prophecy (The Immortal Prophecy Saga #1) by Samantha Adams & Kay Fry

Book Blurb

The prophecy has been foretold...
Her destiny has been written...
Her fate has been sealed...

Alessandra Decosta was just your average sixteen year old girl,
until she took a fateful visit to a fortune teller. What happened that night would alter the course of her life forever...

Five years later, Alessandra, now a private investigator,
was doing what she thought was a routine stake out...It was to become anything but.

Without any real warning, she found herself in the clutches
of the evil vampire, Vincent.

Just as she expected to die, James Carlisle, the smouldering
immortal that had haunted her dreams and thoughts for the last five years saved her from certain death with only a moment to spare.

Her memories of the horrifying encounter are removed and its
only when she meets James again at a masquerade ball, does she begin to have flashbacks of her brush with Vincent and the intoxicating Immortal that saved her life.

Alessandra is the only thing that stands between the immortals, the guardians of the human race and the vampires, the destruction of all mankind.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Alessandra lost her parents at sixteen after she visited a fortune teller.  The fortune teller told her a prophecy was given and Ally was at the center of it all.  Her parents were killed before they could tell her the truth.  James was foretold to be her soulmate while Vincent wanted to kill her.  She didn’t believe a word, until now.
She has met Vincent.  He is a vampire and he killed her parents.  James comes to her rescue.  Her shock at seeing him is high.  She thought she dreamed him.  The prophecy is now set in motion.  James is now forced to make a move.  He has to take Ally to Scotland where she will be safe.  She is fighting her destiny and he fears she will fail against Vincent and die.  He can’t live without his soulmate but he can’t push her either.  His choices need to be carefully weighed.
Ally is furious that she had no say in coming to Scotland.  She hates that her choices in life have been taken from her.  At first she refuses to accept her role in the upcoming battle.  But once in Scotland she is advised to listen to the land and the ancients.  She has to open herself up and welcome what they have to say.
She finds herself in an ancient battle, learning more about James and her family.  When Vincent and Natalia make their move Ally realizes she can’t return to what her life was.  She has to accept what destiny wants her to do.
This is the first book in the Saga series and the storyline was interesting.  I like the take on vampires and immortals and how they interact.  Typical good versus evil battle continuing in the modern age.  I also liked the author’s idea of soulmates.  So James and Ally’s relationship was instant and strong.  The reader can understand Ally’s battle against losing her choice in matters.  However Ally’s actions and reactions came across as childish and immature at times.  She threw tantrums, at least what I picked up on.
I liked her in the very beginning when she was a girl visiting the fortune teller where she came across less silly than her friend and when she was doing her job as a P.I.  She seemed no nonsense on both occasions until James entered the picture.  The attitude she possessed just kind of changed.  She hid from what was in front of her.  Then she fought to go back instead of confronting the situation head on.
It was hard for me to continue reading it.  I liked the story but lost interest in Ally.  She came across weaker as the story continued.  I wondered what happened to her strength.  It showed itself at times but then she appeared stubborn instead of listening to others working together.  So I was mixed on the story.  I give it a 3 out of 5.
