Review: Love Me to Death (Underveil #1) by Marissa Clarke

Medical research scientist Elena Arcos has always lived her life under the radar, which is not easy to do when you live with the craziest woman in the world. But eccentric Aunt Uza is a picnic compared to the other people who enter her orderly life after she is shot in a convenience store robbery.

Elena finds herself rocketed from comfortable predictability to supernatural insanity courtesy of her own private angel of death who happens to have the sexiest accent on earth and a body to match. Her death angel is convinced she’s some kind of freaky half vampire thing and that her deceased dad was the real deal: a blood sucking monster.

Yeah, right. She’ll play along, but then she doesn’t have much choice seeing how as the guy claims to be some immortal law enforcer and has taken her prisoner.

* * *

Nikolai Itzov had expected to fight the urge to torture the progeny of his father’s murderer, but he’d never anticipated battling the urge to kiss her her.

As a Slayer, an elite law enforcer descended from Azrael himself, his charge from the Underveil General is clear: Kill her or die. He has been told she is one of them--an Undead. Nothing but a parasite to be destroyed. But he has been told wrong.

Nikolai and Elena find themselves in a life and death battle to stop a plot designed to lift the Underveil and enslave humans.

With her analytical mind and his centuries of training and experience, they might be able to foil the plot with their lives and maybe their hearts intact. But in order to succeed, he must help her become the very thing he hates the most: an Undead.

I enjoyed how this book was written. I was hooked on the story beginning with the convenience store robbery and all the way to the end. It had action, suspense and a hotness that made it worth reading again.

Nikolai definitely made this book for me. I think Elena Arcos was a good match for him but she did irritate me a few times but Nikolai made it all better. Further into the book however Elena became the great strong character I knew she could be. The other characters in the book were also quite charming too. I very much enjoyed Vlad and Stefan. Their characters added to the story and I am hoping each one gets their own story in return.

The storyline was a great ride and I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for the reader in the next book. I will be sure to keep reading the series and keeping an eye out for crazy cat ladies now like Elena’s aunt Uza.
