Review: Dark Immortal

I was so excited to get this review! Thanks to Sasha at Two Lips Reviews for the kind words.

Coi's universe is complex and elegant. It is well-structured with no loose ends. The plot is complicated, as is the backstory of Diana and Alric, but it unfolds seamlessly. Because Coi stays on the feeling level, the reader might not realize how complicated the nuances of her story are, particularly the backstory of Diana and Alric. Dark Immortal is a beautifully written book. Coi uses its length to explore her characters in depth and reveal their pain, courage, love, hope, fear, and strengths...

Diana and Alric are strong equals when it comes to virtues. Their relationship is that of a passionate woman and an alpha male who need, respect, and depend on each other. It is very hard to write like this and I have not seen many writers do what Coi can. She is great at emotions and great at lengthy sex scenes. I would read another J.K. Coi book in a minute!
