All I will say is this: If Sebastian is really truly dead, I will never read this series again.

I am so excited to hear about this book!!! I really thought the series was over after book 2. This has really just made me day! :-D

This is one of those books that I would give negative stars if I could. In fact, I'd give the whole series a negative rating. This book was better than the previous two, but considering how pitiful the previous two were, that isn't saying much.
I do like Sarah about a thousand times more than Evie as narrator, but once again, that isn't saying much, because Evie is the worst character in any book that I have ever had the displeasure of reading. She is self-absorbed, and she doesn't seem to care...more

this book was marginally better than the first two in the series. while there is still plenty of overt religiousness, it's not as new-testament-bashing-you-in-the-head as the previous books. i liked this character a bit better than the one who narrated the other books, as well.

i think my main problem with these books (apart from the religiosity) is that it's a lot of telling, not as much showing. i understand that sarah thinks she is in love with cal because that's what i'm told. i don't really...more

Gillian Shields never disappoints when it comes to the Immortal series and I will be the first to admit when I saw ETERNAL I thought it was a continuation of Evie's story-how her life would be now that Sebastian is no longer part of it, upon later research noticed that it was written from the perspective of Sarah.

I found the ETERNAL to be very insightful, I got to see Evie in a different light and maybe I'm wrong but I don't recall every reading in either IMMORTAL or BETRAYAL where we got a sen...more

Thank you First Reads for allowing me to read this book! I was a little hesitant because I hadn't read the first two books in this series and because you just never know how much cheese you're going to get with your YA books. The writing was easy to follow and it was easy for me to fall into the story.

First, I thought that the author did a good job of bringing me up to speed with this book so that I didn't feel too lost or confused having not read the first two. The descriptive detail was nicel...more

"If I had someone ~ anyone ~ I wouldn't waste a second of it in anger."

Unfortunate at best. I'm only giving this 3 stars because the first two were so good. But in all honesty I found this book dragged quite a lot. Not to mention I wasn't prepared for the main character to up and change and while I realize that authors do this, after 2 books from one pov it was difficult for me to transition to another. While Sarah is an ok character I have to say that I enjoyed Evie more and I missed her presen...more

Gillian Shields continues to impress me with the Immortal series. While it doesn’t have the world’s best plot, there is something addictive about it that instantly pulls you into the story. Eternal is told from Sarah’s perspective, which surprised me, but actually makes sense. The first two novels are told from Evie’s perspective because she represents both water and fire, Eternal is told from Evie’s perspective because she represents Earth.

While I liked reading from Sarah’s perspective, there w...more
P.E.
I didn't know what to expect going into Eternal. I had read Betrayal and Immortal all in Evie's perspective so I was surprised upon getting the book that the story was about Sarah. That made sense; Evie's story was finished. I enjoyed reading about Evie's romance with Sebastian but Eternal was about Sarah.

Sarah has always felt like the supportive best friend. She's kind and helps everyone but secretly she wants her own story. I was fascinated by her character. She had a very distinctive personal...more

After reading Immortal and Betrayed I had high hopes. Especially after reading Betrayed (I cried at the end). It did a pretty good job, although not quite reaching the mark. It was a little slow in the beginning, but I thought the end was beautiful.
Sarah was a strong character, and I liked the small progressions she made during the story going from a character who lived her live through other to one who lived her own. And I liked how we got a bit of a continuation of the Evie and Josh story lin...more

First of all, a fourth book better be out soon because this one ended with what I would classify as a cliffhanger.

This book took the least amount of time for me to read out of the 3. The first one took me almost 2 weeks which is very rare for me. Eternal took me 3 nights at most.

I think this was because it was in Sarah's POV. At first I flipped out because it was such a random change and I was thinking that I would mistake Sarah for Evie the entire book. But as I read I liked it better.

Mainly...more

Sarah has always been off to the side in Evie's adventures, never a main character. But when a new student with possible powers comes to Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies and an S appears when Sarah is calling on the Mystic Way, Sarah knows it's her time for the spotlight. The only trouble is, she, Evie and Helen have broken apart and are no longer fellow sisters of the Mystic Way. However, by following her Romany roots, Sarah may be able to call on powers she never even dreamed of befor...more
Lauren
Unlike the other books in this series, this book is told from Sarah's POV.

This is one of those books that I would give negative stars to if that were possible. In fact, I'd give the whole series a negative rating. I mean, this book is better than the previous two, but considering how shitty those two were, that isn't saying much.

I do like Sarah more than Evie as narrator, but once again, that really doesn't mean much because Evie is the worst character EVER!! She is so self-absorbed, and she do...more

i was a little rusty on this series, i think it's been over a year since the second one has been out.

references made here and there throughout the first few chapters completely jogged my memory of the previous books.

a little strange: this book is not in the point of view as Evie, like the previous ones, but is told by Sarah.

one small thing that irritates me so far (and i mean tiny) is that the first person is past tense. i love first person, but it
s just weird that every single thing is in the p...more

I didnt know i had an ebook of this in my Amazon Kindle. So, i read it only now! XD haha! Anyway, it was interesting as always. Full of adventures and secrets about Wlyde Cliff. I felt sad for Helen. All she wanted was her mother's love and yet her mother was calling her to join the Darkness. Evie really loved Sebastian but i guess she could now open her heart again for Josh. Seeing they do have some kind of connection. :) Well, actually i do feel that they're all connected. XD haha!

I guess this...more

This was really good. First I have to say that it took me a while to read only because I had to read the first 2 books which were very good as well. Thank you goodreads for giving me a chance to be one of the firsts to read this. Thank you.

I love the way that the book switches the point of view the first 2 books were in Evies p.o.v. and this is in Sophie's . I also love the way that the still have a bit of the struggles of the other books as well as show Sophie struggling in always being the sup...more

I though that the book read slow at first and to much little detail that could have been skipped over.I did however think that the store was great!!! I just love how each girl in the Mystic Way(Evie Sarah, Helen and Agnes all or will soon have a book with there view and a store to put them out front. The mystery with Sarsh and the drums,i always try to figure out the who-what- and where,before they till us. I just could not or was the betting of the drum good or bad??

The third book in the series takes on a completely different perspective than the first two. Instead of being narrated by Evie and Agnes, we are now hearing Sarah and Maria's story. In a way I liked this as it added a new element to the story and it expanded on the character development of someone besides Evie (who was a little melodramatic); however, Sarah is self-pittying for the first half of the book. Ah well. As I am a sucker for anything having to do with gothic romance, I definitely enjoy...more

I received this book from the goodreads giveaway. I was concerned that I would be lost as I have not read the first books in this series, but the author was able to explain the events and the characters of the story through Sarah's perspective so that I could follow the story without difficulty. I really liked the character of Sarah, a person of the earth. She seemed practical and loyal, admirable traits. It was harder to be compassionate for the other key characters and for why Sarah would care...more

Im disappointed this wasnt narrated by Evie and im honestly not sure if I'm going to finish reading it. But id feel weird if i didnt because i have this desire that Sebastian isnt really dead although when i think about it i have no idea how the author could bring him back in a way that would be interesting and also make sense. I dont know, i really liked the first two, the love between Evie and Sebastian was intersting. As was the connection that Evie had with Anges. But opening the book and re...more

So judging by the ending, I take it that there's another book coming our way and I'll be looking forward to reading what's up next for Sarah and her friends at the boarding school of Wyldcliffe. I recommend this book to anyone who has already read the first two installments or anyone who loves some magic in their books.

I love all of Gillian Shields books! After reading Immortal and Betrayal, I drove into this one lavishly. I savored every word and it was nice to get to read one of the secondary characters from their point of view in this miniseries. Sarah, one of Evie's friends, is the main character this time while Evie and Helen are known as the "friends." I look forward to the finale to this wonderful and brilliant tetralogy.
Vy
This book was good, but like the last one, super slow. If I did not like the setting and the characters so much, I would find this third book to be a drag. I didn't really mind the narration shift from Evie to Sarah because I like them both, although I did find Evie's story to be more interesting. I still enjoyed this book but it wasn't as exciting, haunting, or mysterious as the first two.
Somer
I lied...i DID NOT read this book because
1- sebastion is FREAKIN dead
&&
2- sarah is the one speaking -_-
3- evie is making out with josh HOW FAST YO!
....its so obvious whats gonna happen sarah keeps talking about "when is it gona be my turn..my needs...my wants" shes probably gona go rebel against her friends & in the end go back to sweet sarah & apaologize..bla bla bla this sucks -.-
Jessica
It was interesting to see the story through someone else's eyes. I had grown used to Evie's sorrows and concerns and tragedies so once I found out that the third book was in Sarah's view I grew excited. As with the previous books I felt that the ending dragged on. History was repeating itself; the only difference was the state and condition of the antagonist. Over all not a bad read.
Kathy
I really liked Eternal, the last book Betrayal was sad at the end with losing Sebastian, but I think it was right in order for the story to move forward and I really like with the author changes the POV to a friend and we get to see their story and the part they play and how they find love. I can't wait to read Destiny and see who this great love for Helen is going to be.
Amber
I luvd the first two books of this series. This one was told by sarah so it was different I still like the book but I would of liked to have heard more from evie. The relationship between sarah and cal evolves wonderfully and I am hoping theres gonna be another book the ending kind of hints to it but I am wondering if its gonna be helens turn to find love this time.
Danica Prinsloo
the firts 2 books of this series were Writhen as part of Evie's life this 3rd book was writhen as part of Sarah's.

This time their friendship is really fragile and can break with only words! evie is still heart broken after she had layed Sebastians soul to rest. and is turning her back on hte Mistick Ways.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as I did the first two books in the series. Sarah was constantly complaining about how she was always the good and kind friend so she seemed whiny. It's also probably because I liked the story of Evie and Sebastain more than I did Sarah's story. I'm still going to read the next book and find out what happens though.
