Tristan McBreen may have been changed into a vampire, but he refuses to feed on any innocent person. Thinking of his lovely Ireland, he stays secluded in lovely Savannah, Georgia, as he tries to find the mate who could be his true salvation.
Mary Katherine Elizabeth O’Reardon lives for one thing; to avenge her parent’s death. For seven years, she has been faithful to the devil, and Lucas Clairmont was indeed a devilish monster who will pay for his sin.
Tristan is a warrior as his father before him and so forth. At seven, he wielded a dagger, a sword at nine, and his first battle at ten, but now the vampire, who prefers to be called eternal, strives to find peace. The only thing that keeps his sanity is the sweet smell of lavender that reminds him of Katherine. She wields a stake and sword, and her marksmanship is great with a bow. Never a quitter, she is determined to take out Lucas for killing her family and prove to Tristan she has the backbone to be there for him.
The many colorful characters that intermingle together in Knight Everlasting make this story enlightening and keep it moving at a good momentum. The journey that Tristan and Katie endure is one that holds fast through everything and lasts forever. Their romance is pure and the reader cannot but become lost in their love for their duty toward each other and their mission. Lisa Philips makes her characters believable as well as likable. The evil ones are really downright malicious, and I found myself rooting for the good guy to get rid of the evil ones. She pens a good story where I could share in Katie’s ache over the loss of her parents as well as her deepening love.
