Ancient vampire Andrew
escaped his tropical island exile with his beloved human sailor, Edmund.
They’ve now returned to Andrew’s home in nineteenth-century New Orleans
and must navigate not only their developing relationship—and equally
haunted pasts—but also a hungry coven of vampires Andrew used to call
Desperate to stay by Andrew’s side forever, Edmund
examines the impressive coven library in search of an Elder, the only
creature capable of turning Edmund. Although missing for centuries,
Andrew believes an Elder must still survive somewhere; they just have to
The search is put on hold when Edmund receives word
that his mother is ill in London, and the lovers set off on an oceanic
journey surrounded by new friends and old enemies. When things go
terribly wrong, Edmund’s fragile human life hangs in the balance, and an
Elder must be found or Andrew will be alone forever.
I enjoyed this continuation of Andrew and Edmund's tale. In fact, I liked Escaping Solitude more than the first book, I think because the characters are now established, so we had a little more time to get to know them better and focus on their relationship. I also really enjoyed the change of location, leaving behind the tropical island of the first book in favour of New Orleans. The story moved at a good pace, with a nice blend of romance and action, and the book closed on a cliffhanger, leading us into the third and final part of the story. I look forward to seeing how things will end for the couple in the last book.
