My Review
I received a complimentary copy of "The Darkest Day" from Netgalley, provided by the Publisher for my honest review.
I'm so glad I was contacted by Britt Bury to read her debut novel of her series "The Immortal Heat".  I fell in love the minute I started reading about these hunky Immortals.  
Kelvin Kerr is an immortal Razorback who has been out to avenge his father's death. He swore he would kill the male heir of the Campbells when he got the chance.  He has hated the Campbells for years now.  He never thought that the Campbell's next generation of ruler of the Fionn/Campbell Clans would be a woman.  Not only that...but he would be attracted to her.  Of course how can he be attracted to someone he's supposed to hate...and he also finds out she's human after her disguise disappears.  
Izel Fionn, just wanted to travel to Scotland to see her family, her grandfather Euan Campbell.  She never thought she would be fighting with Kelvin Kerr.  He's handsome and HUGE.  She also never expected that her grandfather was keeping her safe by disguising her. She's the last human alive on Earth and she's the most wanted creature out there.  All the immortal creatures want her dead.
It's up to Kelvin Kerr to keep her safe...but does he have a secret agenda to kill her too.  
My thoughts on "The Darkest Day"...I loved the world that Britt Bury has created.  This definitely is a great first book to the series.  I was able to follow what was going on and I also got a glimpse of who the other immortal characters were that she will probably end up having books on.  I really look forward to Ian's book.  =)  
What did I think about the characters?  I loved Kelvin, although he could be a jerk sometimes to Izel.  She put him in his place though. He was one hunk of a Razorback, but of course like I stated he was a jerk at times.  Although, in the ending he won my trust again when he finally admitted to Izel how he felt about her. (took him long enough though).
  Izel was a sweetheart and I was able to connect with her from the beginning.  She got herself in dilemmas, but she was able to get out of them, except for one...but I won't give that away.  
I loved the other characters in the book too.  I really want to find about the others in the Kerr Clan.  I also want to find out more about the Fionn Clan.  There's a certain Fionn...that I fell in love with because he was there for Izel. 
The ending was spectacular.  I loved how everything played out.  
"The Darkest Day" had be laughing and crying.  Laughing...because Izel and Kelvin kept bantering with each other and crying...because what happened at the end.  
Britt Bury and her series is very promising.  I look forward to reading the next book in the series.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves the paranormal romance genre, loves reading debut authors and their series.  You'll fall in love with these immortals just like I did.
Thanks again, Britt, for contacting me.  You have a fan for life.  =)
