Vampire Most Wanted: An Argeneau Novel
Sands’ latest novel follows Basha Argeneau, a rogue vampire who travels with various carnivals as a fortune teller. She’s on the run from Lucian Argeneau, who wants to hold her accountable for her son’s actions. Basha meets Marcus, and they discover they’re life mates. Basha is torn between wanting to stay on the run and wanting to be with Marcus.
While the ending is somewhat happy, don’t expect to be satisfied. The story just kind of dropped off, without any real conclusion. Although Sands’ new book managed to keep me entertained, some of the dialogue comes off as awkward and unnatural. Basha’s terrifying past is brushed off without any emotional trauma. And the plot is always the same: Two vampires discover they’re life mates. Drama ensues.
Sands explains the mythology behind her world of immortal beings consistently, whether through narrative or dialogue. I’ve read some of Sands’ work before, and she does a good job of explaining what’s going on without pages of boring exposition. Those who are new to her “Argeneau” novels aren’t left in the dark. Even though it’s the twentieth book in the series, readers can jump in like it’s the first.
