Review: Darkness Falls (Immortal Beloved #2) By: Cate Tiernan

Title: Darkness Falls (Immortal Beloved #2)
Author: Cate Tiernan
Published: October 2012
Source: Bought
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Goodreads Summary:

You can run from your past, but it will always catch up.

Nastasya has lived for hundreds of years, but for some reason it never seems to get any easier. She’s left behind her days of debauchery to find peace and forgiveness at River’s Edge, a safe haven for wayward immortals. There she’s uncovered her family’s epic history, reclaimed her magickal powers, and met Reyn, whom she dubs “the Viking god.” Just as she settles into her new life, Nastasya learns that her old friends might be in town....

Reuniting with her gorgeous and dangerous ex-best-friend, Innocencio, Nas wonders if she’ll ever be truly free of her dark legacy. Is Incy dangerous, power-hungry, and wicked? Or is he the only one who truly understands Nas’s darkness? Either way, Nas is desperate to find out who she really is-even if the answer kills her

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book towards the end but, it took a while for me to really feel like this one felt like a sequel to the first book at all. The beginning half of this book felt much like reading the first  book which was what initially disappointed me, I wanted new action, new characters, and Natasya to show growth and to finally move forward, and towards the end the book improved a lot.

Natasya was just as frustrating a character as she was in the first book, she was making progress in her immortal rehab but, she was doubting herself left and right and I was ready to see her take more responsibility and recovery in her life.  It wasn't till the end that I really felt that she was going to embrace everything she was learning and finally  turn into the woman that she has been wanting to be all along. 

Although I was so disappointed that Nas went back to her old friends after everything she went through to get away from them but, it definitely spiced up the book and brought the action I was waiting for through the dragging first half of the book. 

Overall, Darkness Falls failed to grab me through the first half but, definitely picked up towards the end and has convinced me to continue to read the last book and find out the ending of Nas's story.

  2. Glad it improved a lot towards the end and you got some of the action and character development you wanted. I haven't read the first, but I've thought about it.
