Heart of Eternity is definitely a different reading experience. A romance with a good dosses of spirituality, destine and love. This is an excellent written story with profound characters and the eternal fight between light and darkness.

At first I didn’t know what to expect and the first chapters confused me a bit. Let me explain, after an intriguing introduction or prologue we have two parallels stories that seem to have nothing in common. We read about Naida and Jay before encountering each ot

Heart of Eternity by N. Jay is quite an intense and unique read. This is a tale that will pull you to question the durability of your faith. Is your faith strong enough to overpower the annoyance of your past and to capture your inner demons? The main focus of this story is on ancient healing and the metaphysical realm.

Heart of Eternity has been classed under the contemporary romance and suspense genre. I tend to disagree with the classification of contemporary romance. There were some elements

Wow! This is a powerfully written story, both metaphorically and as a fictional tale.

It can be read a couple of ways, one where the characters of the story are symbolic of good and evil, darkness and light. The other way is reading as a two people's life journey where their paths cross and even though they are travelling in two totally different directions their destiny is that they meet as they both have a purpose...they need to save each other.

Naida is seeking inner healing, she knows that her

Heart Of Eternity by N. Jay

Set in New South Wales Australia, in the town of Blackheath Nadia is a loving and kind spirited person. Jay is the complete opposite, evil and mean spirited. They meet in a very unlikely way. Their lives are in danger but through their inner pain, they feel drawn to each other. Will they be able to help one another or will they be the cause of despair for ever?

A fascinating supernatural tale of despair, hate,pain and love. Very original story line that kept me reading

Heart of Eternity is, at its heart, a story for romantics and mystics everywhere, who believe in the transformative power of love. I don't read romance novels with mystical connotations too much, but this book sounded interesting and grasped my attention right off the bat. It was refreshing to have something set in another realm, in another celestial period. What really caught my attention though, was the voice or style in this novel, how it was written. The novel is so well written that its ...more

This novel was presented to me as a "new age" romance, which featured mystical and metaphysical content. I think this was an accurate description. It crosses genres and never lands solidly in any particular nitch. That's not to say this is a bad thing, since most novels do to some extent contain elements of multiple genres.

Being an ancient, medieval and classical literature-trained reader, I appreciated the reference and subtlely borrowed themes from Milton and Dante. I appreciated the lyrical

When I first started this book, it grabbed me. I won't put any spoilers in here, only to say I enjoyed the book thoroughly and I feel it's well worth a read if you are looking for a novel that is quite deep in terms of emotions as well as the message, it tends to convey.

It's quite easy to connect to the main characters in the book, Naidah and Jay, but what will grasp your attention is the story line that runs in two asymmetrical realms; the tangible reality/physical and the subconscious. The plo

This has to be one of the best books I've read this year so far. It has everything from a strong, courageous, but flawed heroine, and an equally flawed and somewhat stubborn hero.N Jay has written characters that are full and dialogue that is real, lyrical and touching, it draws you into the book so much so that you become invested in each word, waiting for what comes next.

The vivid images of scenery and the feelings conveyed of the two characters make us want to read just one more page... maybe

Well, that was definitely a unique read! I really didn’t know what to expect from this book. I have to admit that before reading it, I thought that it would be different and I was right. The writing style of the author is exactly like the story of this book: spiritual and magical.

This is a story of the journey of two souls. Both of them are suffering for different reasons but one of them is surrounded by light while the other

So deep and introspective, so tentative and passionate in it’s romantic growth. Intense, but delicately so.

A fellow reader told me that Heart of Eternity was just pre-released and was on super sale. But for some reason, it… was calling to me. I downloaded the sample, shrugged and thought… peculiar yet interesting and so I bought it and it absolutely FLOORED me!

Heart of Eternity is a “new adult” book with a special twist and even better, a sexy reclusive “bad-boy” that saves the day. But he has…

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

A remarkable love story that will captivate your heart and mind as you get lost in the lives of Naida and Jay.

They were two polar opposites, but yet so profoundly connected that they could not live without each other within this realm or reality. From the beginning they were attracted to each other, almost unwillingly; but yet their love grew to unmeasurable heights and depths in a very short time.

This uniquely written love story transpo

N. Jay’s Heart of Eternity is almost a paranormal romance with spiritual overtones. I say almost because it doesn’t quite fit the romance genre but I cannot say why without giving spoilers. The writer’s language is rich and she uses it expertly to paint her canvas of dark and light, love had hate, and reality and fantasy. Both Jay and Naida, are wonderfully drawn characters. This is an interesting story full of darkness and hope and though at times predictable, still manages to surprise the ...more

I have a corner of my keeper bookcase filled with books that have touched me in an extraordinary way. These are the books that I return to time and time again; stories of characters I can’t get enough of. Books with writing that wrings my heart, and floods my soul with feelings. This is where Heart of Eternity will reside…until I can’t resist its lure and once again immerse myself in the world of Naida and Jay.

This is not a fairy tale romance, you will not find a prince in this story… But, you will find love.

The kind of love you don’t find easy, and you would fight for a chance to feel it for just a moment.

Heart of Eternity was a romance readers breath of fresh air! It’s so original yet, has all the things I enjoy in a romance novel.

Naida is wonderful! She has the heart of an angel, and the will to fight for what she believes in. I fell in love with her character right away, and hoped her high spirits

Heart of Eternity, the story is good and interesting.
The way the book was written is different, but not in a bad way.
There are times that I was confused on the first parts but as I read more, I got to understand the whole story.

The characters, Jay and Naida are interesting.
They are easy to relate with and I love how as the story grew, I got to learn more about them (with all the things and stuff).
Also both the characters are in

Jay knows he is dark, he thrives on it. His life is full of bitterness and although he can put on a good act when needed, he knows who he truly is. When he meets Nadia everything is about to change and he resists it completely.

Nadia doesn't have a lot of time left, she knows she has cancer and has followed her belief of spiritual healing rather than medicines. As she enlists the help of her Uncle, she finds her life intertwined with Jay. They both need each other, but will there ever be a time w

Naida is a very physically sick woman with a great deal of faith and a spiritual healer like her famous uncle. She has run from her father and the medical treatment she needs in hopes of healing herself with her own soul-deep powers of healing. Her uncle sees a great capacity to be as good as he is, but Naida has a vision that stops her in her tracks, a dark demon-like entity with green eyes in need of her guidance.

Enter Jay. Jay's life has been full of pain and sorrow. Unfortunately, he's let

Amongst the vampirish and/or overtly vulgar and sexually driven literature trends these days, Heart of Eternity came as a breath of fresh air with its presumptuous and daring theme knitted in a subtle narrative prose.I really enjoyed this story and couldn't put it down.

N.Jay deserves credit for daring greatly in the book with an unconventional story line that will take you to a self-revealing journey in the town of Blackheath, Blue Mountains where the con

Heart of Eternity is an amazing story on several levels. It is a suspenseful romantic tale with a metaphysical touch that is hauntingly familiar yet refreshingly new, a testament to the unique style of writing by the author. The use of language is richly descriptive in conjuring up incredible mental imagery allowing the reader to be transported into the story. N.

Completely delightful! I enjoyed reading this book so much that I'm truly sorry to have reached the end of it. I've read hundreds of romance novels in my life--well, probably thousands--and if I could only keep 5, this would be one of them. It's that good.

The hero, Jay, is who he is and doesn't care who knows it. Besides being a self-centered oaf, he's gorgeous, intelligent, and a bad boy with a haunting past in all the ways that really count. The character development is delicious, and Naida an

Heart of Eternity is a short metaphorically written story that has all the components of a Shakespearian tragedy.
The good versus evil concept is well represented in the two main characters of this book. The good; Nadia, is a young woman that is trying desperately to rid her body of cancer through spiritual healing.
The evil; Jay, is a deeply disturbed young man who has a demonic personality which leads into masochistic tendencies.
These emotional, poetically charged pages are filled with hope, des

N Jay's writing is superb. Heart of Eternity carries more than one life through troubled times. I believe that faith is redemptive but Jay demonstrates this as fact in Heart of Eternity. Jay`s life has been both tragic and unplanned while also riddled with fortunate turns of fate. This is what makes the story compelling. At least half of my reading time was spent on the edge of my seat and the other half hoping for a break to get this young man out of the darkness. And along comes Naida, one of ...more

An inspirational journey into the depths of my soul.

It's a great book for anyone who is preparing to embark on a journey --physical, emotional or spiritual -- and challenges us all to identify and pursue our own personal legends through Naida and Jay`s love story.
