The Immortal Conquistador

by Carrie Vaughn

Ricardo de Avila would have followed Coronado to the ends of the earth. Instead Ricardo met with the end of his mortal life—and a new one, as the renegade vampire, Rick.

For over five hundred years, Rick has infuriated the demon world. He has ferociously protected his found-family from marauding vampires, joined forces with a legendary gunslinger, appointed himself the Master of Denver, and called upon a church buried under the Vatican. Of late, Rick has even made a famous friend: everyone’s favorite werewolf talk-show host, Kitty Norville.

Now, whether you are new to Vaughn’s fan-favorite novels, or a longtime reader, you’ll be riveted by the final full-length tale of the series.


“This fun character study works as a standalone but will hold special appeal for series fans.”

Publishers Weekly

“[Vaughn] takes you on a fun adventure and secretly sneaks in layers of complexity to her characters where you find yourself thinking about them for days on end.”

“Beautiful sci-fi fever dream.”

To Other Worlds

“I love this story and highly recommend it.”

“Carrie Vaughn’s THE IMMORTAL CONQUISTADOR is an excellent addition to her Kitty Norville books, and gives us a closer look at one of her most fascinating characters.”

Stephen Blackmoore, author of the Eric Carter Necromancer series

“No surprise to anyone, but Carrie Vaughn can write the sixteenth century up through the Old West as well as it’s been done. And it just feels so good to sneak back into the Kittyverse through the vampire door.”

Stephen Graham Jones, author of Mongrels and The Only Good Indians
