Book Review: Haunted by the King of Death (Eternal Mates Romance Series Book 11) by Felicity Heaton

277 pages
A ruthless vampire warrior, Grave Van der Garde rules the mercenary Preux Chevaliers with an iron fist, determined to retain his hard-won position as one of the most powerful men in Hell and his reputation as the heartless King of Death. But beneath the cold fa├žade beats the heart of a vampire torn between love and hate, ripped in two directions by a single ethereally beautiful female—his fated phantom mate.

Driven by her phantom instincts, Isla used a spell to make her solid in order to deceive the vampire who killed her sister’s demon mate and have revenge on him, condemning him with a single kiss to become a phantom too. But her plan took an unexpected turn when she fell in love with him, and with her new life, and the night she betrayed him shattered both of their hearts. Now, he lives to make her suffer through their connection, one that is fading with them as they begin to slip into the phantom world, and she must face the monster she created if she is to save herself and the vampire she still loves.

With a demon from Grave’s past determined to destroy him and everything he holds dear, and the clock ticking down to their inevitable doom, can he and Isla overcome their past and their pride to work together to claim the future they both desire deep in their hearts? Or will death finally catch up with the vampire king and his phantom mate?

Grave van der Garde, known as the King of Death, is the aristocratic vampire leader of a mercenary legion stationed in Hell. Grave, bloodthirsty and bitter, is estranged from his fated mate Isla, a phantom turned corporeal. Separating Grave and Isla is a century of volatile tension stemming from betrayal and a whole lot of miscommunication. But when a desperate Isla shows up on Grave’s doorstep soliciting his help, the two are forced to confront a host of issues, including their acrimonious relationship.

I enjoyed the evolution of Grave and Isla’s relationship. Given the pair had once been in love, a wonderful tension was present right from the start. Grave’s brooding, hostile demeanour was nicely portrayed and pure alpha. Isla, a fighter in her own right, is strong, resourceful, and stubborn. The journey this powerful pair takes is full of action and combustible romance. I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish.

This was my first foray into the fictional worlds of Felicity Heaton; odd given the author’s extensive book list. I’m pleased to report that I’m hooked. Haunted by the King of Death is book 11 in the Eternal Mates series, however, I read it as a standalone with little difficulty. This book also crosses over into another of Heaton’s series, Vampire Erotic Theatre. Both these series have caught my interest.

There aren’t many surprises here, however, this is PNR done right. It’s a tight, well-written tale with loads of interest.
