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 som 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?
Though this book was good, because well, Cate Tiernan, it was not as good as the first book in the Immortal Beloved Trilogy. Unfortunately, this second book in the series, Darkness Falls, did suffer from that second book syndrome.

HOWEVER! This is the first line in the book, "I want you".

Well hello good morning to you too!!! I mean, I can't even stand it! Of course this was the "Viking" speaking to Nastasya. 

In Darkness Falls, the sequel to Immortal Beloved, we find Nastasya still at River's Edge, still attempting to better herself. After all the revelations from the first book, Nastasya is even more confused than when she first began her journey to self discovery. Add into the mix the feelings, she is trying oh so hard to fight, for Reyn, and you have got a recipe for hilarious disaster of epic proportions!

Nastasya is just as hysterical in Darkness Falls as she was when we first met her in Immortal Beloved. She is also faced with even more troubling happenings, dreams, and visions at River's Edge than she had in the first book. Again, she keeps her feelings and thoughts close to the vest, so to speak, attempting to rely only on herself, and no one else.

Epic fail.

After a major freak out session, where Nastasya begins to doubt everything she has worked so hard to build, she finds herself right back in the arms of the very evil she was running from. Though this time it's different. She has been awakened to who she really is and what it truly means to be immortal and sees right to the heart of her problem, though in typical Nastasya fashion, her realization comes too late.

I am very looking forward to the conclusion, Eternally Yours, where I hope to have lots more Reyn, Nastasya hijinx and possibly a magical battle showdown!
