    Live To Read

    This book starts out very...lovey-dovey in the beginning. The main characters, Ellie and Michael, have just found out that they play massive roles in the end of the world. In a sorry attempt to stave off the end of the world, they resolve not to speak of their other natures, believing that their understanding and active talking about their "other selves" may be the catalyst that starts the clock that will end the world.


    It's almost too much. Michael continuously writes love notes to Ellie, calling her "My Ellie" and whatnot. There is a point where this gets grating...although it is sweet in the beginning. Ellie responds in kind, just as loving. It is clear that the main characters love each other; however, it is an immature love. Michael is quick to accuse Ellie of cheating when he finds out that she has been hanging around Rafe, a student with some special powers of his own that she meets at a school stadium. Rafe and Ellie work together on a project dedicated to bringing relief to the volcano victims (for the reader's edification, the volcano was a sign of the end of the world).


    Rafe and Ellie do have an immediate connection. Ellie feels safe and happy in Rafe's presence...unfortunately, their romance is over before it has a chance to start due to Rafe's otherworldly nature and the commitment Ellie and Michael must make to each other.


    During this whole time when Ellie is off with Rafe, Michael is busy being angry and haughty. He becomes a bit of a star due to his football prowess...partly because he uses his powers on the field. Michael's newfound obsession with football is partly what drives Ellie and Michael apart and what brings them back together in a "final reckoning."


    The novel was pretty good, but a bit of a letdown after the terrific first novel in this series. The plot could have been developed a bit more, the characters seemed a little...off, but the events were fast-paced and exciting to read about. Overall, this novel is recommended to readers who enjoy young adult fantasy and romance.

    Great book

    Very good book, romantic and suspensful. Diff kind of plot. But enjoyable. I found it a little hard to keep up with though. That was truly its only flaw! Worth the money. Hope.that there will be third.

    Review from Blkosiner's Book Blog

    In some ways I liked Eternity better and worse than Fallen Angel, the first book in the series.
    There was plenty of action, and things that kept me turning the pages, I wasn't sure of who to trust and anxious to see how things would turn out. I still really liked Ellie, and I think that her struggle of maintaining a daily life, and keeping her secret is balanced perfectly. It would be too fake if she didn't have doubts and she didn't have problems.
    Michael was a eh point of this book to me. I understand how persuasive the fallen can be, but I feel like some of the points I thought were out of the way from the first book were reiterated, and I really just wanted him to step up more, and see him and Ellie's relationship strengthened.
    A very positive point in this story was the addition of the character Rafe. I can't tell too much about him without spoiling, so just suffice it to say that he saved the story for me. He is just what I want in the type of character role he played.
    The ending is kind of a question to me. I think that things were wrapped up beautifully even though I do feel like a few of the plot lines were a little rushed in the middle and towards the end. I am not really sure if there is going to be a third book, or where it might pick up if there is.
    If you enjoyed Fallen Angels, then I def recommend to pick this book up!

    Someone

    I slid down the tree, my short, choppy black and gold hair swishing into mybline of vision. I scanned my surroundings with mismatched eyes: green and blue. As the sky dimmed, my hands started to glow, lighting up the small clearing. "Get a grip, Jade." I reminded myself. "Just try to avoid being caught."
