    We are two for two this week on reading some of my favorite sub-genres. I’ve been reading vampire novels since middle school, and they have remained one of my favorite things to read about even despite the saturation that happened after Twilight hit the shelves, because when they are done right it’s completely worth it. Petra is one such novel.Petra is a book that spans several centuries and focuses on the origins of the Essentiae (the immortals) but mostly follows our title character from h [...]

    Petra by Cheri LasotaImagine being a poor slave girl forced to watch her mother be slaughtered by her master. Petra was a young woman who was forced to deliver her master's baby after her mother was killed and accidentally gave the woman a deadly poison. In his madness, the master forced Petra to drink the poison which should have killed her but instead gave her immortality. Petra wanders the centuries finding others to join her group. This is an interesting book but I now need a Latin to Englis [...]

    An unusual and interesting vampire origin story, this earns 4.2 out of five stars from med I don't even like vampires!Part of the attraction of this book was that it begins in the Roman Empire, one of the few historical eras I don't mind reading about. Also, I know the author can write a good tale.I don't want to give anything away but this origin tale won't answer all your questions about "how did vampires come to be" but it will introduce you to a new breed of vampire. In fact, there are two t [...]

    Although it did take a few chapters to get into the story is NOT because the writing was lacking. Sci-fi is difficult for me to process quickly. I have to keep reading until the story begins forming a movie in my head so I can "see" these new worlds. Once that kicked in(it is the same for me for all sci-fi) it was a page turner. Petra, an immortal, takes her "position" in life so seriously that it impacts those around her. By the time the ending rolled around, I saw an even greater internal stru [...]

    A wonderfully penned blend of historical fiction and paranormal fantasy. Beginning at the turn of the first millennium AD, on the estate of an extremely brutal Roman, Clarius, the intertwined story of slaves, Petra and Lucius begins. The story of how immortality was imparted to this trio and their interconnected lives over succeeding centuries was compelling. The characters are vibrant, including the secondary ones that appear as their story unfolds. The meticulous historical research undertaken [...]

    I don’t know exactly what I was expecting when I started this book, but I was left standing in awe and amazement by the time I’d finished it. Firstly, I didn’t know it was a story about vampires, and didn’t figure it out till I was pretty far into the story. Immortals…duh. Obviously I don’t read books about vampires aka immortals. However, I am so glad I read this one.What an emotion-filled, action-packed story! There is never a dull moment, that’s for sure. And I absolutely loved [...]

    I am not normally a fan of vampire fiction, but in Petra, Cheri Lasota has introduced a new kind of vampire and an intriguing vampire origin story. I was drawn in from page one by the interaction between Petra and Aurelia, and my feelings about the story only grew more and more positive as I read. The origin story, the love between Petra and Lucius, and the absolutely (but not quite absolutely) irredeemable Clarius, along with so many other aspects, made this a book that I feel like I absolutely [...]

    A Novel Twist on the Vampire Theme.Petra is a Roman slave who discovers a plant that grants her immortal life. Unfortunately, following his wife’s death, her master (Clarius), a particularly unpleasant individual, enters into an agreement with Petra to grant him and others immortal life. There is a catch: Petra must renew their lives every year. Not wishing to miss out on his cruelty Clarius agrees to not kill Petra’s lover (Lucipor) providing that Clarius can murder (temporarily at least) P [...]

    “Petra” was the first book I have read by Cheri Lasota. With this first book in the Immortal Codex series, she has set up an interesting world with infinite possibilities. In the beginning, it seemed like the book was primarily conflict without much character development, but as the story moved on, a better balance was achieved.I found the return to the “present” every so often helpful in staying in touch with the timeline. This is not the genre that I normally read, but I did enjoy the [...]

    Petra isn't your typical vampire story, although it shares much in common. The protagonist and title character, along with her band of Immortals, must bargain with ancient pacts made with an implacable enemy. While they attempt to live without those pacts dominating their lives, still they ever struggle. It is that struggle that defines the story, rather than some grand quest or an action adventure.It is really about immortal love.

    This story is part of the Dominion Rising HUGE package. I wasn't sure I would like it at all since I have avoided vampire books - but I don't remember why I decided to avoid them. Anyway, this is a very interesting story with more ideas about that subject than I expected. I think it is very well written and I have to admit that I am surprised that I liked it!

    Did not like it. Slow in places, which will put you to sleep and the story line left alot to be desired. I just didn't care for the story at all. Found it long winded, boring, with dull and uninteresting characters.

    This is a book purchased as part of the Dominion Rising Anthology. I enjoyed this unusual storyline with enduring characters. No great drama-- simply a good story, well told.

    A different view on the vampire origins. An eternal battle to keep them under control. Tragic romance and interesting perspective.
