Immortal Beloved ~~ Cate Tiernan



Description
Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan
NEW NAME, NEW TOWN, NEW LIFE.

Nastasya has done it too often to count, and there's no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends . . .when you're IMMORTAL.

Nastasya has spent the last century living as a spoiled party girl, numbing herself to forget the violent and fatal tragedy that robbed her of her birthright -- and her entire family. She feels nothing and truly cares for no one, until one night, when she witnesses her best friend, a dark immortal, torture a human. And her world is ripped apart.

She flees her "friends" and seeks refuge at River's Edge, where wayward immortals are rehabilitated. There she meets a gorgeous, undeniably sexy immortal (aka Viking god), who seems inexplicably linked to her past. Nastasya finally begins to deal, to actually care about life, and to feel safe. But when she discovers the dark immortals are after her, she suspects that danger may be closer than she ever imagined.

First, I would like to preface this review with the statement: I did not like this book. Not because it wasn't well-written, but because I have certain expectations when reading a book classified as Young Adult / Teen. In a book classified in this genre, I expect a coming-of-age novel or at least some lessons learned about life involving a teen. This book isn't about teens -- it's about centuries-old immortals who act like teens.

In the course of living hundreds of years, our intrepid heroine has been married, had children, done every drug imaginable and has still learned nothing about life. She does decide that she needs to fix her out-of-control lifestyle and ends up finding a home for wayward immortals. I couldn't really get behind any of these people either.

If this book had had just one regular 16-year-old character viewing the strange lives of these immortals, it would have been a much better tale. Half the fun in reading YA is seeing young people learn to grow up and relate to the adult world. Watching a bunch of spoiled immortals just wasn't fun.
