Blurb: After one thousand years of listless eternity, Oskar is used to his particular brand of loneliness. But a long walk through middle America and a few chance encounters will lead him straight to a man he’d known to be long since dead―his childhood best friend, Aranck.
Being undead hasn’t stopped Aran from living life to the fullest. He has all the money and power his charm and business savvy could earn him, and plenty of friends. Lately, though, something seems to be missing. After a millennium, perhaps the world’s shine has worn off—and that’s when Oskar stumbles back into his life, reminding him of who he used to be.
Together the two vampires remember what it felt like to live, all the while navigating a conflict with the local pack of werewolves. A lot has changed in a thousand years, and only time will tell if those changes will bring Oskar and Aranck closer together, or ensure they remain apart.
I love vampires and werewolves, I love paranormal, and I love reunited stories, too, so having all three together is a win-win-win. Aranck and Oskar were besties about one thousand years ago when the vampires came and wiped out their village. Aranck thought everyone was killed…including Oskar. Oskar thought everyone was killed, including Aranck. Until one thousand years and lots of walking later, Oskar stumbles onto the lands overseen by Aranck and this when their reunited story begins. I loved these two. I loved that not even a thousand years could remove an ounce of affection they have for each other. If ever there were two men who deserved to find happiness, and each other, it was Aranck and Oskar.
Sounds so simple, right? Nope, of course it’s not. Oskar is more than he seems, and both of them tend to have lost their tongues when comes to letting the other know their true feelings. Now Oskar, I understand. He really had a story to tell. But never fear, no matter the barrier, Aranck was not about to live another thousand years without his Oskar, not even another day. And of course, we have a species slash turf war with the wolves, so there is that, too. Seriously, this was so sweet…with a little rough added in to round it out. A well read story and one I can easily recommend. Enjoy.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
