[Review & Giveaway] Metamorphosis (The Immortal Archives #2) by Devon Ashley

About the Book:  Change is not always a good thing...

Some survived the battle – but not without a price. As one heart starts up again, another dies down. The pure vampires learn their immortality isn't as strong as they'd thought – the status of their hearts determines their vulnerability. And when the truth gets out, a betrayal by one of their own will cost more lives.

New Adult Urban Fantasy

Official Book Page:

My Review:  I am a HUGE fan of Devon Ashley's books.  What's not to love?  Metamorphosis is the second book in the Immortal Archives series.  It picks up where Ordained left off, and is a stronger, better book than the first.  If you liked Ordained, you are in for a treat in this second installment.  The plot pacing is just right, with enough action to keep you turning the page.  You can tell Devon put a lot into this book.  There are so many twists, and some shocking betrayls.  It really keeps you guessing.  I love that in a book.  Nothing irks me more than knowing what is going to happen a few chapters in.  Devon's books are different from a lot of stories out there.  The ideas are fresh, and not overplayed.

I was really excited that Emily played a bigger role in this book, and we get to learn more about her character.  I really liked her in the last book.  In Metamorphosis, Emily is going through her transformation.  Abby and Noel are there to help her at first.  Then in light of a situation that I won't describe here, Emily is stuck trying to figure things out on her own.  She really grows a lot as a character and has some hard experiences.  Through it all, Emily is caring and loyal, and I dig that about her.

I really can't say much about what is going on with Abby and Noel without giving away some major plot elements - but boy, you'll be surprised by everything they're going through.  I can't wait for the next book in the series so that I can see how everything plays out.

Along with the ebook & Lush* giveaway that Devon is giving away (below) she has also reduced the price of Ordained to 99 cents and Metamorphasis to $1.99 for the length of the tour.

*If you don't know what Lush is, check them out, quick! Before the tour is over.  You really don't want to miss out on this giveaway.  Lush is amazing.  My favorite second only to books.  Devon Ashley is a huge fan too.  So, yeah, go check out and enter the giveaway to win a gift card for Lush and a copy of Metamorphasis.  You can't beat relaxing in a bath with a Lush bath bomb while reading a good book.
