    I found the story interesting and creepy, but it gets a low score from me for too much bad language and a cheesy sex seen in a morgue, of all places! At least it was on the floor and not the autopsy table! There was a bit more gore than I want to read as well.

    I enjoyed this one, but it is a little different. Although there is somewhat of a relationship, it is definitely a mystery story, albeit a creepy one. I like Ms. Frasier writing style and voice and definitely look forward to other books by her.

    I really enjoyed this book. The mystery was captivating and the whole vampire back story was very intriguing. The Pale Immortals (a group of teenagers who want to be vampires) are doing really bad things and are led by a man in the town. He's a total whack job. This is the first book I've read from Anne Frasier and I will be reading more. Apparantly there is a sequel to this book. I have to figure out what that is and continue the story.

    Well, this was....um, different. I’m still not sure how I feel about the three main characters and some of their actions as well as the consequences of their questionable actions, and I did feel the story/characters kind of imploded about mid-way through. Those were the two issues I had which kept this from being 4 stars. Oh and one more: the sex in a morgue was a bit creepy. Just sayin’. However, it’s a unique take on the old vampire myth so that was a plus. And, I was interested enough in thos Well, this was....um, different.

However, it’s a unique take on the old vampire myth so that was a plus. And, I was interested enough in those ‘questionable’ characters to want to read Garden of Darkness. I do like Anne Frasier’s voice and style, but sometimes in PI I felt she was in too much of a hurry to get to the denouement to really delve into the characters’ psyche. Onward...

    Far less supernatural than I'd hoped and expected, without any real vampire action, so to speak - if you're looking to get a vampire fix, look elsewhere. I consider this more 'standard horror', a genre that has never interested me much. That said, Frasier writes well; I enjoyed the book for what it is, laughed several times at dialogue and certain character's thoughts, and found I could consume the book rapidly & easily. The overall tone and focus on characters reminded me of Stephen King's writ Far less supernatural than I'd hoped and expected, without any real vampire action, so to speak - if you're looking to get a vampire fix, look elsewhere.

    Not what I’ve come to expect of Anne Frasier Perhaps it is the paranormal aspect of the story that I wasn’t crazy about. I liked the characters but the plot seemed to be all over the place. Much prefer Ms Frazier’s Elise Sandburg and Jude Fontaine series.

    this book had my interest on the first page, but it was the title and the front cover that caught my attention. while i got into the book i started to really grasp the conflict . i mean if i was a character in the book i would be rachel and that would mean that i would get the pale immortal ;)

    Interesting take on vampire lore, set in rural Wisconsin. I liked it well enough that I have already bought the second book in the series. Loves me some Anne Frasier...

    Vampire There are cults that believe they are vampires and I just don't understand but this book gave me the creeps. She has written a great story and should be proud. But Evan should really get some professional help. Believing he has changed because of a tea is ridiculous. He has just been drinking some kind of drug. Surely he sees that. Can't wait to read the next book of his life. Ms Frasier has out done herself is this book of horror. Because Evan is not the only one that believes.

He needs to start communicating with his son because that child needs help too. Wouldn't hurt for Rachel to talk to someone about seeing and talking to the dead. Everyone should read this book and the next. You will have ice running down your spine so be careful. Can't believe that they thought if they ate the heart of a vampire they would becoming immortal. Kudos for the lessons on serial killers 100 years ago. Makes it seem even more real when you read the story.

    Graham was running. He had to get away. Away from his mother who beat him senselessly, from a town he hated and from people that didn't care. He ran to the man he was told was his father. A man who was known by many in Old Tuonela. Known for being mysterious and dangerous. Evan couldn't believe it was happening. After more than 16 years he was supposed to believe he was someone's father? He avoided everyone and everything since he'd taken ill. Not able to out during the day or anywhere where the Graham was running. He had to get away. Away from his mother who beat him senselessly, from a town he hated and from people that didn't care.

But could he avoid Graham? The boy who was lost and alone? Soon Graham was tested and Evan chased. One running with the wrong crowd in order to save his life and the other running from the police who want to arrest him for murder. ~ slow to get going. I started really enjoying it at about 60% in. But once it became interesting, I was hooked!

    When you have a skin disease making you allergic to the sun of course everyone's reaction is that you are a vampire. Add into that you being the author of the retelling of your town's sordid history and you are what kids think go bump in the night. Then you have this kid come out of nowhere right as murder's start happening in your little town. If you have a son what will change? What if hes 16 and you never knew he existed or if he's even yours? Does he have anything to do with these murders?

Flit through the night with Evan as he searches for the answers to his town's dark secrets. This is a really good book. The murderer is one of the last people I expected and I think that makes it even better. The book is easy to follow and hard to put down. If you stumble across this book definitely go for it.

    Decent read, fairly well written with interesting, albeit a little formulaic, characters. But I hate hate hate books that are written with a "cliffhanger" ending, or left essentially unfinished so you'll read the next book in the series. Not good enough for me to continue reading the series. When did this become a thing? I love books that are in series, but complete on their own (eg Dave Robicheaux series). Not a fan of this type of writing/series. Decent read, fairly well written with interesting, albeit a little formulaic, characters.

    I liked this story a lot and can't wait to read the next one. Evan and Rachel are great characters, Graham and Isobel. Its an excellent quick read and very interesting. I feel as though I know these people and can't wait to know more. I like the author. I normally don't read vampire books but I had read another book by her so decided to try this one too. Its definitely unique and the lore about the town of Tuonela is incredible. It just sucks the reader in. Four stars! I liked this story a lot and can't wait to read the next one.

    This isn't your usual vampire type story. I have read most of the authors other books and loved them all. Although different than her other books, this book did not disappoint. It had good twists and turns in and kept me reading and guessing about what was going on. I felt the characters were well written and the relationships well thought out. I can't wait to read the second in the series. This isn't your usual vampire type story. I have read most of the authors other books and loved them all.

    A spooky thriller/horror. Very good. The characters were well drawn and very interesting. Great premise and execution. In a spooky town, where a mass murderer rumored to be a vampire used to live, there are those who think a vampire is still active. The search is on for the living and for the dead. I really liked it and am heading straight into the next book in the series.

    Bizarre!!! Intense - I sometimes had to put the book away until I could face what I feared would happen next ... in that, my reading made me part of the story. Then, near the end, the story was so engrossing I could not put the book down!

    Not my favorite I'm surprised at my reaction, since I normally enjoy vampire stories. Anne Frasier is one of my favorite authors. I'm not sure why I don't like this story more. Perhaps because it left some lose ends dangling. Not my favorite I'm surprised at my reaction, since I normally enjoy vampire stories. Anne Frasier is one of my favorite authors.

    Having read a few books by this author, I was looking forward to reading this book. Just didn’t work for me at all. It was very odd and really didn’t fit into any genre. Wasn’t a detective book or romance or thriller or psychological drama. Just fell short on all accounts.

    Truly a Good Book I found this book to be full of suspense and a bit disconcerting, however I really liked it. It had good characters and a fascinating plot. I have downloaded book 2 and looking forward to reading it.

    Pale Immortal Pale Immortal is a totally different book from all of the rest of Fraisure's books. If you do not believe in vampires she will make you question why. As much as you would like to read a new book of hers, you have to read book two. Pale Immortal Pale Immortal is a totally different book from all of the rest of Fraisure's books.
