Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan

Immortal Beloved Trilogy #1

Immortal Beloved
"After some of the events I've witnessed I felt like I was a shell with nothing alive left in me. I hadn't been going around killing people, but people were hurt - the memories just kept trickling in like rivulets of fresh acid dripping into my brain until I wanted to scream. It was in my blood, I knew. A darkness. The darkness. I had inherited it, along with my immortality and my black eyes."

New name, new town, new life. Nastasya has done it too often to count. And there's no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends . . . when you're immortal.

Captivating, intense and with an incredible and original voice, IMMORTAL BELOVED is a haunting story of friendship, love and secrets, tragedy and loss.


This book is interesting mostly because the protagonist is immortal and is mora than four hundred years old. Usually when we come across immortal characters in books, the protagonist hardly is one of them, and they may become immortal along the book, so this book earn a few points for immersing us in the life of someone that has seen just about everything and gone through a lot of hardships, Nastasya memories are very interesting.

Nastasya has some dark past, and thinks that she have been thought just about everything, but the thing is, she was just blind this whole time. But when she sees her best friend break the spine of a taxist for no reason, she begins to wonder how she has lived and where her friend has learned such a thing. She end up running away from her friends and find a place where immortals like her goes to some kind of rehab, they have to re-learn how to care for other people and how to use they magick for good and not bad.

I don’t know how to explain how this book goes around. Nastasya going to a place to rehab something that she didn’t even know she was involved with, and the fact that she hides from her friend because something is warning her that she is in danger. Even though she is not exactly young, she realizes that she knows almost nothing about immortals, magick and how to live a worth life. She has lived with parties and reckless behaviour for decades and it’s hard for her to think of a different life.

She also refuses to face her feelings and her painful family past. But she couldn’t know that someone in River’s Edge, the rehab facility, is involved with her past and now she must face her heritage and learn how to not use her magick for dark reasons.

When she meets Reyn she doesn’t know if she hates him or cares for him, because her feelings are confused and she refuses to understand it. But she can’t help but think she knows him. And when the reason is reveled, let’s say that I’m impressed they actually managed to find each other in this big world.

With all the days of labor work in the farm building in River’s Edge and the memories of Nastasya past, the whole action thing takes some time to happen, but with Nastasya funny remarks and her different past, and current struggles, this is hardly a boring book.
