Synopsis from Goodreads:

The prophecy has been foretold...
Her destiny has been written...
Her fate has been sealed...

Alessandra Decosta was just your average sixteen year old girl,
until she took a fateful visit to a fortune teller. What happened that night would alter the course of her life forever...

Five years later, Alessandra, now a private investigator,
was doing what she thought was a routine stake out...It was to become anything but.

Without any real warning
only when she meets James again at a masquerade ball, does she begin to have flashbacks of her brush with Vincent and the intoxicating Immortal that saved her life.

Alessandra is the only thing that stands between the immortals, the guardians of the human race and the vampires, the destruction of all mankind.

My Review:
I read Adams’ Immortal Prophecy in one sitting. It is a very gripping story with romance, suspense, and supernatural beings. What more could you ask for in a YA story? The story was predictable and unexpected all at the same time. I found myself lost in the flow of a typical romance or suspense story, only to be thrown for a loop when the scene ends in a way I could never have fathomed.

All of the major characters are very strong and could stand on their own in a spin-off series. It was so refreshing to read a story without a number of place-holder characters. The main character, however, blew me away time and time again. She regularly questions herself and her situation but is strong enough to stand up and do what needs to be done. She is thrown into some of the most out-of-this-world situations and always comes out whole.

I couldn’t put this book down and found myself trying to imagine what could possibly happen next and how it will all pan out in the end. This book did, however, remind me why reading a series is not always beneficial. I absolutely hate having to wait on the sequel.... And this is one series that I will definitely be following until the very end.
