Our Review for Eternal Service (The Colony #1) by Regina Morris

Review for Eternal Service (The Colony #1)
3.5 Stars

Raymond Metcalf, an agent for the U.S. Government. He is also the vampire coven master of the Colony. Most of the vampires live quiet lives among us. They could be a neighbor, a teacher or even your best friend but there a few vampires who want power and control.  The Colony is an elite group of vampires sworn to protect the President of the United States from rogue vampires. The vampires are able to change their appearance based on how much blood they consume so they are able to fit in.  When their “human appearance has reached its limits, they fake their death and start over again. Raymond is used to working with humans and when he meets the new director and is shocked that the new director is a she, he never imagined developing feelings for a human let alone falling for one of them.

Alex Brennan is a career military woman and she recently was offered a promotion of a lifetime. She is also trying to find the man she has been dreaming of, a romance she has been desperately searching for. When she takes the new promotion, she finds herself thrown into a world she thought only existed in the movies. She is trying to come to terms with her newfound knowledge that vampires do exist and she is also battling the feelings she has developed for Raymond. How can she fall in love with a vampire?

Raymond and Alex learn to work together and to trust each other. When they finally give into their feelings for each other, rules are broken, plans are foiled and danger is everywhere. Will they be able to protect the President and will they lose each other doing their job?

I was giving an ARC of this book in return for an honest review. It was a great debut for author Regina Morris.

I enjoyed the idea of vampires working for the government. I loved how they were able to change their appearances based on how much blood they consume. There was action, suspense, romance and a little bit of angst. The characters were very likeable. Raymond is definitely a swoon worthy male lead and Alex is just the right amount of being beautiful, smart and strong but also vulnerable. The only negative thing for me was I thought that a past incident with Alex would have a bigger part in the story. Her incident did help shape the person she became, but I was hoping there would be some closure on it.

Eternal Service was an enjoyable, easy read.  I look forward to book #2 in the series which is Sterling’s story.
