Review Copy from Author

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 friends.

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 find him.

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.
