Tour Review: Infinity by Sedona Venez

Reviewer: Bex
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Fairies

'Infinity' proved to be a fast-paced, gripping paranormal read. I was immediately hooked in by the opening few chapters with the mystery surrounding Infinity's heritage and what this meant for her future. Her character starts off strong and full of diva attitude. Teamed with her entertaining sidekicks, I was immediately amused and entertained. 
 Approximately a fifth of the way through, Infinity's mysterious heritage begins to unravel. Cue hotties from all walks of supernatural life. This changes the focus and creates a shift in plot and character development. The descriptive narrative is, on the whole, engaging and very visual, and the characters effectively come to life. There were times that I was frustrated by Infinity's behaviour and reactions; she's young and head strong. While these characteristics were flaws of sorts, they helped to provide a more realistic female protagonist. There were times that I became a little confused by the plot development. I had to stop and think to make sense of a few things. Despite these blips, I was still engaged and caught up with the action.

I am most definitely championing Boulder. The inclusion of the numerous, sexy alphas creates a lovely level of steam, just at the right heat level to be described as 'new adult'. Be aware, Sedona Venez's weaves together several impressive twists and a cliff-hanger that will have you jumping up and down in disbelief!

Short Excerpt
He stepped closer, brushing my jet-black hair away from my cheek, his finger wrapping around a curl before trailing down my neck. “Do you really think I give a shit about her? Or any human, for that matter? I’m here for you. You’re mine and nothing you can do or say will change that now.”

He stroked my cheek. “You’ve been reckless, Infinity. Did you really think you could thumb your nose at the Collective and live? You disregarded all of my warnings. You are naive and reckless. I did all that I could to prevent this exact moment.”

I tilted my head, looking at him through my eyelashes, whispering, “What moment?”

He pulled me against his chest, digging his hand into my shoulder painfully. “This fucking moment, Infinity. The moment of me standing here before you, not as your consort, but as the man sent here to kill you.” He sighed. “You pushed them too far, and the decision has been made to destroy you for the betterment of the Vampire Collective.”

“No, I… You can’t.” I rasped and swallowed. “She said you wouldn’t.”

His hands gripped my body as he leaned his forehead against mine. “I don’t know who she is, but she can’t save your ass right now. Only I can. You’re mine. Come with me and all will be forgiven. As my consort you will be untouchable, but on your own you are dead.”

My lust started to slowly cool and logic finally started to kick in. Fuck, what was I doing? I was standing in a bathroom, panting over a vampire who may or may not be some crazy ass stalker assassin for a corporation of vampires. This was some crazy shit.

“No!” He held me tight as I tried to back away. “I won’t. I will never choose to be with a monster like you. You might as well kill me now.”

“You’re already with a monster.” He leaned down, scrapping his incisors against my throat. “You just haven’t accepted it.”

Burning coursed down my neck. The panic set in, causing me to kick with futility against his brute strength. I was going to die. The strange woman lied.

“Please, Alik. Don’t do this.” Anger and fear fought within me. Fear was winning by a landslide.
