Review

'Tiernan gives Nastasya a strong, distinctive voice and wonderfully realized perspective on the joys and horrors of history.' (Publisher's Weekly)

'This book is truly amazing and I really, really enjoyed it... There were many great things about this book but my favourite would have to be Natasya's character. So overall, a really great read and a fabulous start to what promises to be a fantastic new series. Dark and dramatic, Immortal Beloved is truly an amazing read!' (www.whisperingwords747.blogspot.co.uk)

Book Description

'So, the whole immortal thing. You must have questions. I don't have all the answers.' Book One in an irresistibly compelling crossover paranormal trilogy...

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The first paragraph of the first page reads:

" Last night my whole world came tumbling down. Now I am running scared."

Other than Metamorphosis by Kafka, I don't think I have ever heard such a brilliantly intense and captivating first start to a book. I was instantly hooked and this alone urged me to read on to see how this statement came to be.

It all centres around Nastasya or `Nasty' to her immortal friends. Nastasya is an immortal and an old one at that, she enjoys the high life and has no need to worry about money or anything else that normal people need to, after all she can do what she wants without the limitation of impending death in old age(although immortals can be killed but do not die of old age). So we are put smack bang in the middle of this life, seeing it from her side, hearing from her point of view about her getting drunk, stoned and withering her life and herself away with so called friends that are doing the same. But when supposed to be bff `Incy' one night uses his immortal magic to inflict a sadistic torture on an unsuspecting victim, it all comes crashing down on Nastasya. She begins to wonder and question what she is doing and why she is living the life she is and why all of a sudden she is scared of her best friend for centuries; `Incy'.

With nothing but her gut telling her to flee, she runs. To America, in search of someone who once told her she could be so much more, a woman called River. Finding her, Nastasya also finds a whole new life with other immortals like herself who no longer want to be dark, not appreciate life and who are running scared of themselves too.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Nov. 2011
Format: Paperback
At the beginning of Immortal Beloved Nastasya (or Nasty to her friends) was the kind of character I hate to read about, she is one of a group of rich friends who spends her time drinking, partying and having fun at the expense of others. For the first couple of pages I wasn't even sure if I would finish reading the whole book but it quickly became clear how unhappy she was with her life and that she wanted to change and I soon became hooked. Nastasya has lived for a very long time, she has both seen and done terrible things and over the years she has become indifferent to the feelings of others. To block out her own memories she has taken to drinking herself into oblivion but after a horrific incident on a night out with her friends she begins to realise that she doesn't want her life to be like this anymore.

She runs from her friends, wanting to disappear and find a better life for herself. Checking into the equivalent of Immortal rehab comes as quite a shock to her, for a long time she has avoided mundane tasks - they give her too much time to think - so working on a farm isn't what she is used to. I really enjoyed watching her character develop throughout the story she changes from a party girl to someone who is able to appreciate the small pleasures in life. I also loved the snippets from her past and the way her secrets are gradually revealed. The inhabitants of River's Edge (the farm) were interesting and I'm looking forward to finding out more about them all. I did struggle to understand Nastasya's fascination with Reyn for the majority of the book though, apart from the fact he was good looking we learnt hardly anything about him until towards the end and they rarely even spoke to each other.

Format: Paperback
Despite finding Cate Tiernan's 'Sweep' series dull and preachy I have to say that I loved Immortal Beloved, which was a shock because, had I not received this and it's sequel for review I would never have chosen to read it, simply because it sounded like the same old, same old.

Was it? No. The set up is different, the 'home for wayward immortals' may be a similar setting to certain books, but the way the plot develops and the characters develop is different and enjoyable to read. The tone of the book started pretty dark and I thought I was getting into one of those really dark, doom and gloom books that i have to be in the right frame of mind to read. Whilst the book does have a serious tone at times, it isn't all doom and gloom.

The book is narrated by Natasya, whose narration sounded pretty immature for a 400+ year old, i'll let this pass just because it was so enjoyable to read her thoughts. Nasty is a pretty mean character to start with, but throughout we see her reasons and we watch her develop and grow as a character. This isn't just a shallow YA paranormal, it also has some depth.

At first i thought that I was looking at a typical romance but complications further in the book really make this romance unique and I look forward to reading more about Nasty and Reyn. I liked Reyn as a character as well, a reformed bad boy with a dark history and a little depth, he could be compared to other YA hunks, but he also stands out for me.

The Mr. Miyagi teacher lady, River was maybe a little too shallow, a stereotypical leader/teacher, I didn't really find myself liking her character. Nell was a typical cow and many of the other side character were stereotypical and lacked development.
