Nastasya has lived for hundreds of years, but for some reason, life never seems to get any better. She left her spoiled, rich girl life to find peace at River’s Edge, a safe haven for wayward immortals. There, she learned to embrace River’s Edge, despite some drama involving the sexy Reyn, who she wants but won’t allow herself to have. But just as she’s getting comfortable, her family’s ties to dark magick force her to leave.

She falls back into her old, hard partying ways, but will her decision lead her into the hands of a dark immortal? Or will it be her first step to embracing the darkness within her?

“Oh my God, can you see me? I thought I was wearing my invisibility cloak.”

Review

I really enjoyed this book a lot. First, I need to give kudos to the narrator, Kelly Lintz. She played the perfect Nastasya. Her voice was snarky, exactly like the character herself. She really helped me get a feel for the main characters.

I had not read the first book, Immortal Beloved, but it really did not matter too much. I was able to follow along easily. By the end of the book though, I felt like I needed to get the first in the series, so, you all may be seeing a review for it soon:)

I love Reyn and all his hotness, but I was really into Innocencio. He just seemed like so much fun and a great guy friend to have! By the end of the book though, I was totally understanding why “Nasty” was so drawn to Reyn and couldn’t help myself to be drawn to him also.

The ending was climatic with a bitter-sweet sadness. The next book in the series, Eternally Yours is due out sometime this year.

WOW

Whisper by Heather Hildenbrand

To be published April 19, 2012

The Cherokee believe when a person dies, their soul is reborn. Life is repeated. An endless cycle of lessons to be learned, love to be found, destiny to be fulfilled. For the past six months, in every flower, every bird, I’ve imagined my parents, relieved of their human forms.

Now, after five months at the Skye View Wellness Center, it was summer, a time for parties and friends, but that’s the last thing I want to do.  So when my best friend Erin convinces me to attend a bonfire at Eagle Point, I can’t handle the crowd full of sympathetic stares or drunk class clowns who would use my tragedy as a way into my heart – or my pants. The solitude of the woods offers an escape, until I stumble upon a boy, unconscious and bleeding, his pockets stuffed not with identification but with poetry illustrating the beauty of dying. I’ve seen enough death. I will not leave this boy’s side.

Even after he wakes, when the only thing he can remember are visions of events that haven’t happened yet …

I LOVE Heather’s Dirty Blood series and am very much looking forward to this one!

  1. I have to agree with you on the narrator. I’m not sure I would enjoy these books as much with out her!! Good narrators are priceless, especially when they so easily and completely capture the personality of the characters!

  2. Whisper sounds very intriguing, and I thought it was funny that the place is Eagle Point since my boyfriend’s neighborhood a few years back was called Eagle Point. I really like the cover for Darkness Falls!
