Sometimes being immortal makes you wish you were dead.
Celeste Crenshaw has survived her parents’ grisly murders, grueling and gender-biased police training, a battle with rogue vampires, and even her own death. While immortality might seem a dream come true, can she accept the strings attached?
Celeste spends the start of her immortal life being mentored by the Elders of the Hollow Earth. They release her once they feel certain Celeste has honed her supernatural powers. But little do they know, Celeste isn’t wholly committed to granting eternal life to those deserving. Upon a return home to her immortal lover, and the Kansas City Detective Squad, she battles mortal foes, not so unlike the demonic undead. And when a fellow detective falls victim to a murderous gang member, Celeste faces a gut-wrenching decision and the possible wrath of the Elders.
“. . . impressive vampiric worldbuilding [with] a fascinating cast.” —Publishers Weekly
Grab the prequel THE IMMORTAL TWIN now!
I give THE IMMORTAL DETECTIVE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
This book was quite good, and I enjoyed the vampire lore along with the world, which reminded me of A JOURNEY TO THE EARTH CENTER. The story begins with the main character Celeste transforming into a vampire with the help of ancient vampires. This was fun for me that the author used famous historical figures such as, Queen Elizabeth, Nortadamis, and Socrates.
The book wasn't hard to follow without reading the prequel THE IMMORTAL TWIN, and the action and story moved along nicely. The author did an excellent job filling in the questions about what was happening and why the hero was in this predicament without taking you out of the story.
Overall this was a fantastic read and I think you'll enjoy it, particularly if you like vampire stories mixed with family turmoil.
About D.B. Woodling:
Once the allure of impersonating celebrities began to wane, D. B. Woodling left the stage and turned her attention to writing. Credited with two historical fiction novels—Shannon’s Revenge: Broken Promises, recognized for its literary merit, and Retribution: A Lover’s Tale—she then switched genres and wrote The Detective Mike Malone series.
Needing a home for an ominous opening line, The Immortal Twin, a paranormal novel, soon began to take shape. Three-winged dragons, undead historical mentors, and police investigations abound in The Immortal Detective, the second installment in Celeste’s journey, with plenty of chilling twists and turns.
When she’s not creating harrowing fight scenes, steamy encounters, or complex police investigations, Woodling calms her soul with scenic walks, often in the company of a clowder of cats or a know-it-all golden retriever.
