If you have heard horror stories about divorce court, you will not be terribly surprised by how proceedings are handled in Immortal Divorce Court. Ending a relationship in the mortal world is challenging enough. When you are immortal, it can be absolute hell.
This book is definitely a page turner. Sirius Sinister is a young and inexperienced vampire assassin who fluidly moves from one personal disaster to the next. His relationships with women are equally disastrous. I found myself flipping the pages with trepidation. I could not decide whether I wanted to sit Sinister down for a long talk about constructive relationships, or whether I wanted to call his mom and tattle on him.
Sirius’ romantic adventures just do not seem to end, and he does not seem to learn much from his previous encounters. I enjoyed reading about the comedy of errors he incurred as he tried to escape the many situations within which he finds himself trapped. The action sequences are frequent and constructed well. The combination of comedy and action was nicely done.
This author certainly has potential. He has managed to create comedy from situations that are frequently rife with unpleasant emotions. Sirius’ adventures through time as an immortal add an interesting perspective to certain moments in history and certain mythological stories. I would have liked a more cohesive plot, but this book was labeled volume one so I suspect loose ends will be tied up in another book. The author has woven in a plot thread that suggests Sirius will be getting that education he desperately needs.
I recommend this book if you are looking for a historical, comedic, romance, adventure that has a vampire assassin as a main character. Be prepared to laugh at some very improbable situations involving the Boogeyman, a boil, and wine.
