We're Starving.

Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands

Ongoing series with 27 books, and 2 novellas
Genres: paranormal romance

Blurb:

Vampires exist. The Argeneau family is the oldest and most powerful of the vampire families. Vampires come from Atlantis, where they ran an experiment with nanos to see if they worked. They worked too well, and now they never age because the nanos repair all damage. The only problem is they require more blood than a body can produce to fuel the repairs. There is also the side effect that they can read other people’s minds, including vampire’s minds. They need that one, their Life Mate, who they cannot hear in their head, to be truly happy and content with their mate.

Review:

You know, I must have been reading this series for ten years now. As you can see, they’re never really the best thing I read, but I keep going back to them year after year. For as ridiculous a premise as this series has (Atlantian vampires with nanos?? And the nanos allow them to read minds?? Come on!), the series is actually pretty solid if you like paranormal romance.

The plots aren’t special by any means. Yet they tend to be cute and funny. And sexy. The first 9 books are Lynsay Sands focusing on a specific branch of the Argeneau Family. When she runs out of siblings, close cousins, etc, Sands branches out to distant cousins, aunts and uncles, and even just close friends. The series is a bit looser after book 9, but still pretty solid.

It is only since book 23 or so that I’ve started to question where the series is going. I’m not really certain why Sands is going to this weird Island of Doctor Moreau plot. It really doesn’t fit in with the rest of the series.

The people are good, the stories are okay, the sex is fine. After 27 books it just has started to get pretty repetitive. Yet, I’ll still keep reading them. I don’t read paranormal romance for the spectacular plots.
