darkness falls

darkness falls
immortal beloved #2

published 2012

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?

In between reading Immortal Beloved and Darkness Falls I decided that I must read her other books and I would start with the Sweep series.  I hated them.  The characters were annoying and over the top.  Not enjoyable at all.  Then I started wondering if maybe Immortal Beloved was a fluke and I would hate the next two books.  Thankfully, that wasn't the case.

Nastasya is getting better and better at River's Edge.  She's starting to accept that she can make a better life for herself and be a good person.  We get a lot of flash backs of the not-so-nice things she'd done in the past and we also get to see a bit of what River was like as a young immortal.

But things start to go awry and Nastasya begins to believe that she can't control the dark magick inside her so she decides to leave River's Edge to keep everyone else safe.  And then then the bad stuff really starts to happen.

A good follow up to a great book.  I think I'll have to jump right into Eternally Yours!
