It was okaybut the most I can say about it is that it was entertaining. Belvoed, Nasty to her friends, is an immortal. No one is sure where the first immortal came from, but they can be found among every race and nationality.
As is usually the case, they are not truly immortal–if you cut off their heads, burn their bodies, and scatter their ashes, they will not survive, but that’s a rather specific set of circumstances, so I don’t begrudge them their “immortal” status. They also have the ability beooved learn and use magic. If you know anything about Tiernan, then this is not a surprise. Why is it dangerous. Nasty has money and beauty and immortality and a collection of friends who have all of those things as well, and.
Nasty leaves without a word after Incy, her best friend, uses magic to break the back of a rude cabbie. Incy’s kind of a bastard. The next day, she wakes up hungover and completely disgusted with herself, and decides that something has to change. She has no immorta, how she became the person she currently is, but she’s terrified of what it might mean for the rest of her very long life. So she runs to the states. She’d met a women about 80 years ago, you see, who told her simply to come if she decided she wanted more out of life.
From there she enters a kind of rehab for immortals.
IMMORTAL BELOVED by Cate Tiernan | Kirkus Reviews
This book would be an excellent story even without the paranormal elements. And then there’s Reyn. Well, belovfd fine, he’s not really a god, but he’s several inches over six feet of blond Viking warrior, and that’s good enough for me.
So the characters are awesome. And despite what I said earlier about no one really knowing where immortals came from, the world-building in this series is VERY cool. It’s a mix of mythology and paganism, and I loved it. I recommend it to anyone who likes witchy UF and hot Viking gods. View all 54 comments. Feb 27, Bgurl don’t h8 me cuz I’m honestful rated it it was ok Shelves: In the s, Christiane. In the s, Sunna. Before that, another name. A name she never thinks of. Tired of being cynical.
Tired of being lonely.
Tired of being numb. She shook her head, her brown eyes sad. In the 17th Century, she survived the great plague. She saw French royalty beheaded. Lost a husband in the Anglo-Indian Wars. Sipped champagne while dancing The Charleston. And turned on, tuned in, and dropped out with the Hollywood elite.
Invented the frigging T-shirt!
But she wants to find out. I want my power back. I want that for you. Discover what she is. A day is made of a thousand decisions, most small, some huge. With each decision, you can work toward light or sink toward darkness. No one does it immottal all the time. Cate Tiernan is not a subtle writer.
Hence, the life lessons imparted in Immortal Beloved are blatantly obvious. For a more detailed critique of this tiernqn, check out Mara’s review: Darkness Falls IB 2: Eternally Yours IB 3: Click Again you know you want to!

I can’t really comprehend that I am sitting here pressing determinedly the five-star-button – in spite of the first chapters, which obviously have been patched together rather sloppily and almost caused me to switch books with one click on my Kindle, Yet – here I am am doing precisely that and feeling completely comfortable w Yet – here I am am doing precisely that and feeling completely comfortable with it.
Really, at the beginning I had the fleeting, horrible impression my paranormal “favorite” Infinite Days would manage to catch up with me.
The cruel, excitement-addicted, immortal heroine – unable to feel for mere mortals – and her gang of equally shiny, but worthless companions, who break a taxi driver’s spine for fun. I got very angry about repetitive sentences that should have been edited away and I moaned about unbelievable scenarios like an immortal girl hiding a burn-mark from her best friend under a scarf for over a hundred years – in spite of drunken and drugged party nights, shared hotel rooms and beach holidays, or like the same girl being shocked about said best-friend’s pleasure at causing someone deadly pain.
As if it would be possible to hide a personality this rotten for over a century from someone that close to you. I held out and was rewarded with degrees-style improvement. From the moment Natasya boarded the plane in order to leave her old life behind, the nasty crinkles smoothed out and the story enfolded beautifully in front of my eyes. It is the story of a girl whose long, long life has made her unable to feel attachment, unable to sleep without “self-medication”, unable to decide for herself what she really wants.
It is a story of a girl at the point of no return. A girl who turns herself in at a rehabilitation center for wayward immortals, because she vaguely remembers a woman inviting her 50 years ago to come and stay with her should she hit the bottom end of things and change her mind.
The rehab plot unexpectedly uncovered some very interesting strings of thought about the burdens of immortality, but also about a fulfilled life in general. That might have easliy turned into something preachy-soppy, but Natasya’s own snarky, sceptical attitude and her ongoing inner monologue fueled by exaggeration lightens the mood and gives her stay at “River’s Edge” a pretty hilarious note. I was really relieved not to have to read about the hot-hot-hot love-interest without reprieve.
He is of the – in my opinion – hot sort and I began to look forward to Natasya’s encounters with him nothing like enemies falling for each other hard, isn’t therebut I was glad that the romance was not taking over the already interesting story as soon as the potential supernatural heartbreaker made his first entrance.
