Review Copy from Author

Their ocean journey was successful, and Andrew and Edmund found an Elder just in time. As they wished, Edmund is now a vampire like Andrew. They have eternity together, but first, they must visit Edmund's ailing mother in the English countryside with their flock of immortals, including the Elder, who has taken an ominous liking to his new creation.

When they arrive at Edmund's family estate, his sick mother and her loathsome best friend await them. While ducking religious curses, Edmund struggles to harness an unexpected power gifted him by the Elder. Andrew fears for his beloved as Edmund becomes more and more monstrous—but vampires have always been monsters, haven't they?

A battle is coming, for Edmund's heart and his soul, and Andrew will lose neither. He escaped island exile and a near tragedy at sea to be with Edmund, the beautiful young sailor he loves. Andrew will do anything to keep Edmund by his side, but his most dangerous adversary may be Edmund himself.

When Sara Dobie Bauer approached me to review the final book in the Escape Trilogy, I was keen to see how the series would conclude. Escape Mortality was a fun little read that I got through in a single sitting. It picked up right from the events that ended book two, and it was great to see Edmund's journey continue as he adjusted to his new vampiric nature, and the jealousy that sprang up between Andrew and the Elder. All in all, it was a satisfying conclusion to the tale, with a good blend or action and steamy romance; however, taken individually, I think book two remains my favourite of the three. If you are looking for an engaging, quick LGBT PNR read, then I recommend the Escape Trilogy. 4.5 stars
