Overview

Forever...is a long time.

Dakota's life has been long, hard, and lonely. Now she's a hunter, and alone by choice. She's the best at what she does, and what she does is hunt down the things that go bump in the night that no one else can get to. But no matter how hard she runs or how many walls she builds in her heart, the past is always hunting her.

For the first time ever, she agrees to take on two cases at once: an ex-lover for murder, and an Ancient vampire the cops can't touch. Both cases will reveal things that shake the very foundation of her existence and break the walls she's worked so hard to build around herself.

These events will bring the past, present, and future into a collision course. Will she survive it like she has survived the past four centuries, or will she go down in flames?

    When Forever Died is the second book in the Adelheid series. It

    When Forever Died is the second book in the Adelheid series. It primarily focuses on the hunter that was introduced in the first book, Cameron's Law, Dakota. Even in the world that Mia has developed which has given the recently revealed supernatural beings the same rights as normal people Dakota is a rarity. She has the ability to take multiple animal forms and can even shift into other human forms.

    The best thing about the fact that Dakota is so unique and powerful is that she doesn't miraculously develop new skills that allow her to escape any situation. That is something that I find fairly often in books and it drives me crazy. Despite the fact that she has such a greater kind of power than most of the other preternatural citizens she is still flawed and bad things still happen to her. Another nice aspect of this book is that it works pretty well as a standalone novel. You can have a greater appreciation for the book if you have read Cameron's Law (and at the time of this review it's free so why wouldn't you?), but this would still be an enjoyable book if you hadn't.

    The pacing of the book is done well with some occasional flashbacks to enrich the backstory of the main character. Since she has been alive for around two thousand years there is a lot of story to cover.

    Mia has done an excellent job once again of making her characters into people first and creatures with amazing powers second. Dakota is haunted by her family past as well as a past relationship in this book and struggles to deal with both them as a normal person would. There is a hint of romance in this book once again, but it weaves into the story without overpowering or slowing anything down. This is one of the best paranormal series I have found this year.

    Once again, Mia Darien has succeeded in creating non-human chara

    Once again, Mia Darien has succeeded in creating non-human characters with humanity AND putting a unique spin on the preternatural abilities of Adelheid's inhabitants. Dakota is a lovable curmudgeon (with a well-written character arc) and a rare breed of shifter. (Unlike other shifter heroines, Dakota is no "one-trick pony.")

    Dakota's intriguing dream-memories, which span many lifetimes, are rich in story. (I couldn't help comparing the dream-memories to the flashbacks in the 90s HIGHLANDER series.)

    I defy anyone to read When Forever Died and NOT like it.
