Second installment on the Eternal series. Woh.
This book backtracks slightly into Eternal Island to Abe's and Ariana's wedding reception, giving us a brief memory jog of how the first book ended. I found this to be a great tactic since I can't just read the last few pages of a book, even if it's one I've already read just to get up to speed for the next volume of the series.
Unaware how much his long time friend hurt Rainey when he left the island without a word seven years ago, Abe invited Deus to his wedding. Deus himself is unaware of how deeply Rainey's feelings for him go or that he is in love with her. And so begins the dance of Rainey protecting herself from further pain and Deus trying to understand what he did wrong and win her back.
Ah but that's not all. In Eternal Immortality, Haigwood shows us she can throw a wicked good curve ball, and not just once. Everyone who made it through the first book (more or less) alive comes back, but not everyone is who they seem to be.
A curse is lifted. Love is challenged and fought for on more than one front. Allies are found, as are angels, demons, and bears. (Oh my!) Well, the bears are really shapeshifters, but what do you expect on an island where all people paranormal are accepted as long as they live and let live. And there are angels, and demons do come to play, or fight.
Ariana's powers continue to develop and provide surprises for her friends. A new player declares his love for her and fights in unscrupulous ways to win her over. The biggest curve ball Haigwood throws in this book, of course, comes at the end and straight out of left field, if you'll forgive the baseball reference. (Sorry, no spoilers here.) Needless to say I was in shock.
I have read three books by this author so far. In this book, Haigwood has shown herself to be an author to watch, follow and read. My only disappointment came at the end of the book when I learned I would have to wait until June 2014 for the third book.
One caveat. This book does contain a couple of brief, moderately explicit scenes I feel are not suitable for younger readers.

I was so excited to read this book. I literally had just finished reading the first of the series when I began reading this one. I couldn't put it down, finished it in one day, and can't wait to find out what happens next. Quite an exciting read and will be recommending not just this book, but the whole series!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I received this book as a gift from the author. This is book 2 of the Eternal series so you want to read Eternal Island first. You will love it!
I started reading K.S. Haigwood's books about a month ago and have not been able to put them down; this one included.
The author takes you on a journey into a crazy and wonderful dream. Honestly, I don't know what else to compare her books to. Dreams are wonderful and exciting and that is exactly what her books are.
Haigwood pulls you in fast and hard and keeps your heart racing through the entire book. There is never a dull moment. You will find yourself on the edge of your seat begging for more.
I know you will absolutely love this book as well as all of K. S. Haigwood's books.

* I was given this book by the author in exchange for an honest review *
This was a great sequel! I didn't want to put it down. It has everything you could want in a book- humor, romance, horror, good vs evil. The story had quite a few interesting twists which kept me on the edge of my seat. Truly an adventure! The author really makes you feel like you are on Eternal Island and experiencing all of it. I can't wait for the next book and will be waiting very impatiently!!!!

I love the way the characters in this series jump off the pages and come to life. This book makes you feel as if you are not just passively reading a story, but makes you feel as if you are there, and all the characters are real, you know them all, and you are personally involved in the action. The joy, the tears, the worry at what is to come... its just beautiful. 5 stars for sure, and I wish I could have given it more!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
