After 450 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...but can she fight against true love...more

Eternally Yours, without a doubt, is Cate Tiernan’s best work yet. This third and final book of the Immortal Beloved series could not have brought a more brilliant and wholly satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. With as much cleverly-crafted wit, realistic depth and meaning as the previous books, with as much entertainment and magickal fun, it shines just as brightly as its predecessors. If anything, it is better; the humour is sharper, the characters better developed, the storyline a...more

Lusting after this. I picture the cover... Yellow! Or maybe... White?
Until I can hold this baby in my arms I'll have to be content with re-reading the first two over. And over... And over.

Post Reading: Oh Reyn, I already miss you! Best male lead in a book series in a LONG time!

Pre-Release: If I had a TARDIS, I would totally pop into the future to pick this book up!!! The wait will not be easy!

Review Posted at whatchYAreading.net:

I reviewed the first two books in this series, Immortal Beloved and Darkness Falls on my own but for this last one, Christine has joined me:

Caitlin: I feel like I waited forever to read this book. I’m not even sure why. It isn’t as if Darkness Falls ended on a cliffhanger or anything. Or that there is an over-arcing plot that needed to be wrapped up. I just love these books and these characters and needed more for the simple pleasure of having more.

Edit 04/18/2013: One of the reasons this series is so close to my heart is that me and my best friend shared such love for it and its characters, and it even brought us closer together in a way. She passed away this February, and even though it was one of the most painful experiences I'd ever had to go through, I still found myself smiling and even laughing when I took a whole day to skim through the entire series.

I had been looking forward to Eternally Yours ever since devouring the first two books in the trilogy earlier this year. I am happy to say that it did not disappoint! Nastasya (our 459 year old immortal) is back and she is just as snarky and sarcastic as ever. We catch up with her and the residents of River's Edge about a month following her gallivants to Boston and the tragedy with Incy. I was happy to get to see Nas back with River and relieved...more

9/10

This was (far and away) the best of the trilogy! I really, really liked this book! Nastasya has grown so much, but she is essentially the same sarcastic (459 year old) teenager, and I love that about her!! I didn't feel like we got enough about the other immortals at River's Edge in this book...there were so many great characters (with really long histories to explore), and we just barely scratched the surface with most of them. But Nasty's "project" was a great way to both show her growth,...more

This was such awesome conclusion <3. I officially love all three books. The story proved to be great, but it just felt rushed toward the end. I guess few more chapters wouldn't hurt but oh well.

Rating: 4.5 Stars

I've found it increasingly difficult to be satisfied with conclusions this year, but thankfully, Eternally Yours lived up to all my expectations - and then some. Nasty continues to shine, both as a character attempting to attain more from her immortal existence and as a narrator who never fails to make me laugh. After the events of Darkness Falls, Nasty is a changed immortal and Eternally Yours captures her mindset perfectly. Now, finally settled into River's and with close frie...more

OVER
:'''''((((



Action packed with good pacing, solid writing, and surprisingly laugh out loud funny. Plenty of one line zingers from Nastasya.

Brilliant end to a series. When a series is so great and then it wraps up in the most perfect way - everything is kittens and clouds and sunshine and cupcakes :D :D

A wonderful ending to the series! I absolutely love Nasty, and have been in love with her, and Reyn, and River, and just about every other character since the first page of IMMORTAL BELOVED. It was so good to find out how they're doing and what they're doing and what they're going to do next. Tiernan really explores the nature of evil, and how everyone can change, and has worth, making the book poignant and hilarious by turns.

This review may contain a few small spoilers of Immortal Beloved & Darkness Falls

This book was just so perfect. I loved every page of it, Cate Tiernan really knew how to wrap everything up without it seeming too happily ever after or even too open ended. She always manages to be realistic in her books no matter their genre. Eternally Yours is my favorite book from this trilogy. The journey Nastasya took together with us was full of laughs, sarcasm, immaturity (mostly from Nasty), character...more

She changed the course of my life, the way a storm can make a river jump its banks and surge ahead.

Nastasya is back at the farm, the reform 'school' for immortals. She's been working to learn about her magic, to stay on course. Suddenly, the place and people she's come to love are under attack by dark, unknown forces, and she's unsure of her role in it all.

Really, really fulfilling conclusion to the trilogy. Solid writing, good pacing, and much appreciated humor (!). Plenty of action, exploratio...more

Here's the thing, if you kill off one of my favorite characters who just so happens to be a universally liked character, as a reader, I'm going to be pissed and as a critic, I'd applaud you for such a daring move.

On the other hand, if you kill off one of my favorite character who just so happens to be a universally hated character, as a reader, I'm going to be pissed and as a critic, I'd still be pissed.

This was a bittersweet ending for me because Immortal Beloved is one of my favorite all-time books, but I absolutely loathed Darkness Falls. This book fell somewhere in between, not nearly as good as the first installment, but way better than the second. I'm glad to finally get some closure, but at the same time, the build-up between Nastasya and Reyn (that's been brewing since book 1) became almost pointless when Tiernan decided to (view spoiler)...more

The swan song for this trilogy theoretically takes us on a search for The Master, but is actually a window to the past of the lives of Nasty and her housemates. For me it was a somewhat interesting but not compelling read.

In their quest to prove that Nasty is an agent of The Master, Rivers brothers ratchet up the tension and conflict levels in the household as "battle" lines are drawn for and against Nasty. Meanwhile the dance that is Nasty and Reyn take several steps down happiness road when o...more

I’m a complete Reyn fan so I don’t really want this series to end…more Reyn please!

Overall I really enjoyed it, but have to admit a few things really bothered me. I felt the end was EXTREMELY rushed. We’ve waited for 3 books now for the Reyn/Nastasya really getting together moment and it was completely bypassed. The last chapter felt more like an epilogue and I just thought the shift between her being scared of the L-word and being fully committed to it was just to fast. Her admitting it was slo...more

Review originally posted http://hobbitsies.net/2012/10/eternal...

I’m not even sure how to write a review for Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan. I have been fangirling her since I was like 11 years old and first read the Sweep series, which I’ve read and reread 100 times since.

And oh, how I love the Immortal Beloved trilogy. Each book in this series has captured me fully with an exciting and interesting spin on the immortal/witchy side of the paranormal genre, light and entertaining writing that so...more

Please bear in mind that this is the third and final book int the Immortal Beloved series and the review may therefore contain spoilers for the previous books.

I have to say Eternally Yours was not at all what I was expecting from the last installment of the Immortal Beloved series. Don’t get me wrong I love Nastasya’s narrative voice, her internal battles and her direct address to the reader made some laugh out loud moments. However, I felt this book is more character driven than plot driven. Na...more

Eternally Yours is the final book in Cate's Immortal Beloved trilogy.

In Darkness Falls, Nastasya berates herself. During her 450 years, she definitely mastered the art of pessimism.
You are a such a chickenshit. You act so tough, but really you're a gooey marshmallow of schoolgirl fears. You keep saying you want to get better, but only if you don't have to do anything hard.
However, in Eternally Yours real changes start to occur. She's beginning to finally trust not just her own feelings, but...more

WOW! Such a good end to a series. I got really wrapped up in this one; knocked it out in about 24hrs.
My only complaint: I WANT MORE.
I would love to see Cate Tiernan put out some short POV's or novellas about some of the other characters. We got to meet a butt-load of new characters in Eternally Yours, and I would love to maybe go back in time and learn more about their histories, (Nas and Roberto? Reyn and Joshua?)I mean what happened there?!?

Anyhow, after finishing Eternally yours I was left wi...more

It took me ages to finish this.

During the first third of the book, I was underwhelmed by all the "Previously in the Immortal Beloved Series..." info dump and the characters talking and behaving with the same obnoxiousness or downright stupidity than before.

And then boredom set in. Nothing seemed to happen until the end of the book when everything went very fast and we got served with a ridiculous sort of epilogue before we even recovered from the whiplash.

The only thing that even remotely inter...more

*Minor spoilers for Immortal Beloved and Darkness Falls*

I want to start with Reyn. He is so cool. And deserves to be the start of my review.

All right, I guess i should describe Nastasya's (questionable/weird/love-hate) relationship with Reyn as "lust at first sight", which is now, to her surprise and confusion, turning into actually something serious. In this conclusion to the trilogy, the romance...more
Meh.
I have edited my review because I finally stopped fangirling.

I would just like to ask a quick question before we get down to bussiness: How old is our beloved Reyn?
Okay moving on.

What I really am fond about the series is that there really are no great flaws in the books. It is very rare that you find such an author to both humor the readers as well as actually have them be interested in the books.

The characters in the books were really well developed and although I find that sometimes Reyn feel...more

Immortal, sarcastic, and worldly Nastasya is a personality not often seen in YA fiction. She says it like it is (at least in her narrative). While she can be frustrating at times (she majorly overthinks things), I think a lot of people can somewhat relate to her constant struggle to do the right thing as she actively looks back on every terrible thing she's done in her life in order to come to terms with it and become a better person. From here on out, there are *SPOILERS* for those who haven't...more

High four stars, maybe should rate it a five. I really did enjoy this. After some disappointment in book 2, this book came back solidly. Love Nastaya's droll remarks and some of the situations she gets into (naked chicken *Ü*). Lots of action and a little romance. Very happy with the conclusion to the series.

I had to read in hardcopy again as my library didn't have this in digital. I miss being able to easily highlight and then reflect on them at the end.

There was a very small, positive spotlig...more

Once again we have Nastasya, Reyn and River's Edge. The eight ruling houses are systematically being attacked and River's brothers (Ottavio, Daniel, Joshua and Roberto) feel that Nastasya is the cause of all the evil in the world. They descend on River's Edge and make Nastasya's life miserable. Well more miserable than it usually is. For most of the book, she and Reyn dance around their attraction (just like in the previous two books) with incidents of kissy-face. (Yes that is what they call it....more

She grinned at me. "A sweater." She held it up -- it was triangular, made of speckled brown and white mohair.
