This was a great read! I really liked the basis of this book. Great imagination and creativity. Interesting characters with great personalities, suspense, action, exasperation and aggravation, humor, and really good ending. Another series for my 'to read' shelf! This would be great to read anytime, however, be prepared to get caught up and lose some time without realizing it. ;) Enjoy!

Harlequin-ku yang pertama adalah seri Nocturne: Eternally karangan Maureen Child. Novel yang ku baca adalah terbitan Gramedia Pustaka Utama. Covernya bergambar bangunan tua, sebuah rumah, dengan warna dasar ungu.

Adalah Julie Carpenter yang baru saja bercerai dari suaminya dan menjalani kehidupan barunya. Pada suatu malam dia bertemu dengan Kieran MacIntyre. Mereka bertemu di suatu pesta di rumah Julie. Yang perlu kita ketahui, Kieran ternyata adalah seorang Penjaga a.k.a Pemburu Iblis yang sudah
"Eternally" is the first book (it feel like it) in a series about immortal Guardians, which are led by a guy named Michael.

The first review I saw about this book stated that it's a lot like Dark Hunters series. At first I didn't see why someone made such a statement. But in the second part I felt that it was justified. And it's not to say that it's bad - I do love Dark Hunters Universe. But this world building felt smaller and a bit less interesting. Maybe it's just for now.

The book started quit

This is the first paranormal book by Maureen Child that I have read. I enjoyed it enough that I have got hold of the others in this series! This is the first book in Ms. Child's "Guardians" series.

Here is a write-up from Amazon:

buku ini bercerita ttg julie carpenter dan kieran mc siapa gitu yang merupakan salah satu penjaga abadi....

This book is a loaner from my mother-in-law, thankfully. If I'd bought it, I'd be torqued. It's a complete rip-off of the Dark-hunter series by Sherilynn Kenyon. Even the name of the hero is ripped from the Dark-hunter books. Kieran seems awfully similar to Kyrian of Thrace, to me. Then you have the back-story - immortal guy fighting demons. I was absolutely disgusted when I got to the part where the author explained that the "Guardians" are served by mortals who know about them and are sworn to ...more

Eternally was a very different book than I've ever read written by Maureen Child. It is a good book none the less and worth taking the time to read.

Great read! The ending was very satisfying for me.

Novel pertama dari serial Pasangan Takdir... tapi, entah kenapa saya malah lebih suka -jauh lebih suka- cerita tentang Santos dan Erin (seri kedua Pasangan Takdir). Kenapa? jelas lebih menarik cerita si Santos lah.

Anyway anyhow, back to this novel... Buat saya, alur cerita di novel ini lambat sekali. Amat sangat lambat. Saya sampe boring bacanya. Akhir ceritanya juga gak terlalu menegangkan. Yah, gimana ya? Gak ada gregetnya sama sekali...

Tapi, tetep suka sama serial Nocturne...

baru baca beberapa halaman awal, dan mulai masuk ke inti cerita. ternyata ini seri pertama dari seri Guardians, dan buku Nevermore ternyata seri ke 2. inti cerita sih sama, seorang Penjaga ditugaskan menumpas iblis dan dalam perjalanan mungkin mereka akan bertemu pasangan takdir mereka. yah, belom bisa nulis banyak, soalnya baru mulai baca :)

yak, selesai hari Minggu.
Kieran is an eternal guardian who fights evil, he meets Julie Carpenter and finds himself attracted, he has heard of Destined Mates but never believed that there was one for him, but this looks like it. Can he convince her to join him and keep her safe, and survive it all.

Entertaining, not too deep

This is the story of Kieran who at the time of his death became a Guardian. He is now an immortal fighter of evil. He meets Julie, a human, when he has to protect her from a demon who wants to kill her. They fine love and become Destined Mates.
I love this! The fantasy aspect! The destined feel of the two people in this story! These two were just perfect for each other. Something I would not mind reading again and again!

This book never really grabbed me and held on if you know what I mean. It was ok ... but not much better than that for me.
