Review:
I haven’t read a lot of paranormal books recently, simply because the genre was becoming a little too redundant for me.  It was the same story line, over and over again, with the same types of characters.  I used to love paranormal, and it broke my heart to no longer be able to enjoy reading it. But today...that all changed. 
Melissa Crowe’s New Beginnings (The Ivory Series) is refreshing for my muddled mind.  Yes, there are vampires, but the mythology and lore that is key in this book is what kept my riveted to this book.  Vampire falls in love with a human (done before) but this one now wants to be human as well.  While this isn’t a totally new concept, the execution was very well done.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book (I gobbled it up in less than two days).  Fair warning, this is book two in the series.  I have not read book one, and while there were some things that were referenced from the first book, I was still able to keep up with what was going on.  I would definitely recommend reading the first though.  I plan on going back and reading book one very soon. 

So, overall, I would totally recommend this book to lovers of vampires, some Egyptian awesomeness thrown in, and a well-developed and created story. Enjoy!
