Series: Shadow Falls: After Dark # 2
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
All her life, Della's secret powers have made her feel separated from her human family. Now, she's where she belongs, at Shadow Falls. With the help of her best friends Kylie and Miranda, she’ll try to prove herself in the paranormal world as an investigator—all the while trying to figure out her own heart. Should she chose Chase, a powerful vampire with whom she shares a special bond? Or Steve, the hot shapeshifter whose kisses make her weak in the knees? When a person with dark connection to her past shows up, it’ll help her decide which guy to choose–and make her question everything she knows about herself.
From bestselling author C.C. Hunter comes Eternal—a must-read for fans of the Shadow Falls series—and the sequel to Reborn.
I have been a fan of the Shadow Falls books since I first picked up Born at Midnight a few years ago and even though this book is a spin off of that series, we still get to see all the characters we fell in love with in the Shadow Falls series and I absolutely love that.
I think I may have enjoyed Eternal even more than I did Reborn and that's saying a lot. Della has grown so much as a character since we first met her and I love that she's finally letting people in, she has such a good heart and she deserves to be happy. With that in mind, there's a bit of a love triangle in this one, which I'm sure everyone was expecting if they had read Reborn. But I don't know who I'm rooting for at this point. At first I was all Team Steve, then in this installment, I was Team Chase, but after some things are revealed at the end of this book, I'm not sure. Not that they were bad, it's just that we don't know yet because of that freaking cliffhanger. Seriously, Mrs. Hunter, how am I supposed to make it until the next book comes out?
One of my favorite things about these books are the characters, like I said above, Della has grown tremendously and the secondary characters are amazing as well. We get some time with Kylie, Miranda, Holiday, Burnett and of course Chase and Steve ;)
Overall, Eternal is an action packed, thrilling adventure and it will definitely leave you on the edge of your seat and yelling NO at the end. But if you want to know what you're yelling NO at? Well, you'll have to read and see.
