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

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

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

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

What I liked about this book was the narrative told from the perspective of Sarah, a shy girl who always does what everyone asks of her and never goes into arguments. She’s the nice girl. Now that Sebastian is gone, Evie doesn’t want anything to do with the sisterhood. And Helen is obsessed with writing to her long lost father.

There are a lot of story elements that I liked in each of the girls. Each girl was dealing with their own internal struggles. And the separation between the girls showed h

Note de 3,75/5 - Jusqu'à présent, c'est le livre (3ème) que j'ai préféré de la saga composée de 4 tomes. J'aime beaucoup le personnage de Sarah avec laquelle je partage pas mal de points communs. L'histoire est centrée sur l'évolution de son pouvoir et sur ce qu'elle devra en faire pour protéger ceux qu'elle aime. Il y a de des scènes d'action mais je pense que je reprocherai jusqu'au bout à l'auteure de ne pas assez les développer. Tout arrive vite et se termine aussi vite donc on n'a pas vraim ...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

"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

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

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
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

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.

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

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

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

The third book in the "Immortal" series, Eternal shifts the narrators from Evie to her friend Sarah. I felt that I enjoyed this change because we delved deeper into Sarah's quest to get to know the Romany( Gypsy) side of her story. When both Evie and Helen find themselves in danger from the darkness that stills surrounds the girls even after Sebastien's death, it is up to Sarah to rely on the members of the Brotherhood to help her stop tragedy from striking the school again.

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!

so I am starting to think book 3 and 4 should be considered side novels or additions to the first two. I mean a different pov in this one? the first two books were centered around Evie now we get Sarah?

if you can think of this as an add on or companion then it really amps up the quality. I really enjoyed the character development and insight from Sarah. that is a better quality of this series; the main characters are not perfect. evie is self absorbed and can act like a spoiled brat. sarah is je

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

This part is the best of the entire series. I guess after every book the story is just getting more interesting. I didn't liked the fact that suddenly after death of Sebastian Evie just became kind of bitch.

The mystery and truth deepens more and keeps it more interesting. The starting where Sarah longs to be loved is greatly written. But again I didn't liked the fact that the writer has not stopped rushing through at the end. The coven always becomes weak out of blue. Looks like the coven is ju

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.

A quite beautiful story indeed.

What I loved about the book:
It was so amazing that the author chose to continue the story based on Sarah's point of view, but still included Evie and Helen. This book has an amazing battle between good and evil, and good wins every time! This story was so beautifully written that I am able to fully understand, and be right there with the characters in the book, enough to make me feel like I am winning a battle with them.
