Dead Memory

Dead Memory - Lizzie T. Leaf This series just gets better with every book. In this story, we meet a were and a vampire with memory loss. Before you say that the relationship will never work, here me out. Lizzie again, puts a different spin on the paranormal genre and with the mixture of demons, weres, vampires and now a witch. I truly can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. We are treated with returning characters that enhance the story and move the plot thread along. Great job.

Tawny is your typical Lousiana girl but with one problem. An overbearing father that just happens to be the leader of her pack. He wants her married, her mother wants her happy and Tawny just wants to marry for love, if possible. As an ex-cop, she is trying to fit back into the country way of life but one night on a run, she meets a stranger in need.

I’ll be honest with you, I didn’t get Tawny at first. I liked her, just didn’t get her. How did she not know that he was a vampire when she found him? And then, when she brought him back to the cabin to heal? It didn’t make sense to me at first. In the end though, I understand why. I liked how she stood up to her father and their back history was so typical of a father only wanting his daughter to marry and be happy. Anyone can identify with that. The interactions with her mother were great, too. She finally realized that her mother ruled the house, not her father. Very eye opening moment for her.

David was the more intriguing character between them. You knew he was a vampire but reading about his history and his tie to the demon was great. I loved how Lizzie wove the religious aspects into the story considering the setting. Well done again. David slowly coming out of the amnesia is a slow build but fascinating. Its not rushed and its brilliant. I would have never thought of creating a character like that. Nor have I read a character like that.

My only gripe, and its small, is how quickly the couple comes together. It felt a little rushed to me but in some ways, I understood it. With the war coming, David realizing how he was/is and Tawny finally coming out the closet, so to speak, it needed to be quick. Think Demons, Hell and Satan. Yes, Satan make another return and its a good one, too. All the characters from the other books make an appearance and again, I love seeing them again. Its a very small community of friends and family that Lizzie has created but each of the characters compliments the others. Word of caution, there are children in this book and they are AWESOME!!!! Not many people like children in their books but trust me, Dani and Keira are a very important part of the whole plot thread of the series.

I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. Let’s see we’ve had vampires, weres, demons, a demon hunter, a vampire doctor, Satan, a floating baby and a physic toddler. Again, the series just gets better and better.
