    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.
  • Cover: I don't hate this cover, but I prefer the style of the original cover design for this series.  I'm not a big fan of facial close ups on book covers.
After finishing book 1 and absolutely loving it, I wanted to delve into book 2 straight away.
It starts up where Immortal Beloved left off, and I loved it just as much.  There were a couple of times in the second half of the book where I wanted to reach through the pages and throttle Nastasya, thinking WHAT ON EARTH IS SHE DOING?!?!  For someone over 450 years old, she was incredibly naive.
But I was hooked, seeing her struggle with her family legacy, her choices and her feelings for Reyn.
These books are totally captivating and engrossing.  Especially as we get to see more and more of Nastasya's past, and discover more about the other Immortals at River's Edge, including River herself.
I'm looking forward to getting to book 3.  I highly recommend this series.
5/5 stars.
