Or will it be her first step to embracing the darkness within her? At a little over the halfway point or thereabouts, an actual plot kicks in with Nastasya falling off the wagon and back in with Innocencio. Shockingly, this goes really really well.
Darkness Falls (Immortal Beloved 2) by Cate Tiernan - Reading Teen: Parental Book Reviews
Hints are dropped for the plot in book three, and some creepy shit goes down. After years of living, Nastasya Crowe should have more of a handle on this whole immortal thing After a deadly confrontation at the end of Darkness Falls, the second Immortal Beloved novel, Nastasya Crowe is, as she would put it, so over the drama. She fights back against the dark immortals with her own brand of kick-butt magick In the satisfying finale to the Immortal Beloved trilogy, ex-party-girl immortal Nastasya ends a year-old feud and learns what "eternally yours" really means. Laced with historical flashbacks and laugh-out-loud dialogue, the Immortal Beloved trilogy is a fascinating and unique take on what it would mean to live forever.
The main problem, I think, is that, back when these began, basically everything had to be a trilogy, so this is a trilogy. Immortal Beloved would have worked so much better as a standalone, cutting down to the core concept and showdown, moving the character development along at a brisker pace, and letting the romance sail a bit more smoothly. I made it through two books like that with smooth sailing, but it was more of a struggle in the first half of book three.
You keep waiting for Nastasya to finally mature, but you have to wait through a bunch of false starts first. The weakness shows through with the other characters especially. No one else really has a character arc, aside from Reyn. The conclusion is surprisingly brutal, but, since I felt absolutely zero emotional connection to anyone besides Reyn and Nastasya, all the deaths meant zilch to me.
Did I like this series? Yes, definitely. Would I read it again? Not likely. Is it particularly memorable? Would I recommend it? IDK maaaaaaybe, but probably not. Thanks for the honest reviews!
