Eternity in Death (In Death, Book 24.5) by JD Robb


Eternity in Death gives us a vampire story. Sort of. This is Eve after all, so while Peabody and Roarke are doing the silver crosses and garlic, and Baxter is handing out wooden stakes... Eve is looking at the facts and is sure it is smoke and mirrors.

The thing is, this author has given us a few paranormal things that have been actual paranormal things, and a few that have been "grifters" pretending, so the question was there throughout the story. Is this a real vampire or a scammer who is playing the part?

The blurb doesn't tell us much, but here it is:

Eve Dallas finds herself in a supernatural showdown with a most seductive criminal: a vampire.

As for the writing elements:
  • The plot was interesting and intriguing.
  • Pacing was well done.
  • Prose and dialogue were excellent.
  • Character development was once again nudged along.
  • World-building was consistent with previous books.
I loved that Roarke allowed Eve to (mostly) take care of herself while the vampire was making his moves on Eve. He knows he has to let Eve do her job, even if he does want to flatten the people who treat her with disrespect.
