Adin Tredeger is a newly turned vampire, no thanks to his overzealous vampire lover, Donte Fedelta. Now Adin must reconcile himself to living as one of the undead.

Deep Deliverance is the third book in the Deep series. The action is fascinating, blended with a touch of humor.  The characters are credible as well as engaging.

The series begins with Deep Desire; Professor of Literature, Dr. Adin Tredeger travels the world hunting for historical erotica. He is searching for a 500-year-old journal with erotic illustrations. Donte Fedelta is the author and the artist of the journal and he wants his property returned. Adin and Donte meet on an airplane flying back to America and the two men become lovers.

In Deep Deliverance Adin feels betrayed by Donte for the role he played in Adin’s mutation, Adin had no desire to be a vampire. The one thing Adin cherished more than his love for Donte was his humanity.  

A newly turned vampire has many adjustments to make.  The biggest modification required was that Adin must feed from a human. In Adin’s mind, feeding on humans would make him a monster, especially if the human died during the feeding process. Adin blamed Donte for the lost of independence as well as his humanity.

Donte realizes he cannot restrict Adin’s freedom; Adin still thinks like a human instead of a vampire. Donte does his best to protect Adin from their enemies even when Adin declines to listen to Donte’s guidance.  

Z. A. Maxfield has created a wonderful addition to this series. There were several times during the reading of Deep Deliverance I hoped someone would smack Adin because of his stubbornness, but Adin finally admitted that he was the cause of the predicaments he found himself embroiled in.
