Immortal beloved book one.
Whilst I did enjoy this book and found the back story and history really interesting, I have to say I didn't find it very exciting, it felt more like the set-up for book two (which I'm starting once this review is written!) which I hope will be a bit more fast paced.
I did like Nastasya, though I found her pretty immature at times for a 500 year old woman! As we go through the book we learn about the terrible things she's been through and has been working to block out for a long time and I felt for her more as the story went along, and really feel I'd gotten to know her by the end.
There are a lot of characters to meet in this book though some get more 'face time' than others, I didn't find I disliked any of the characters but there weren't any I'd call my favourite either. I think what I'm trying to say is, this was a pretty avergae book for me, I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either, I'm intrigued to read the next one to find out what happens next and hopefully get some answers to the questions I was left with and the action I think it coming.
My thoughts on the cover
This is a gorgeous cover! It has a dark and eerie forest in the middle, surrounding by gorgeous colourful flower and vine drawings that stand out a mile, the black of the book is also soft to the touch giving it an extra depth, it really sits pretty on my shelf.

What's it about?
Nastasya has lived for hundreds of years, but for some reason, life never seems to get any better. She left her spoiled, rich girl life to find peace at River's Edge, a safe haven for wayward immortals. There, she learned to embrace River's Edge, despite some drama involving the sexy Reyn, who she wants but won't allow herself to have. But just as she's getting comfortable, her family's ties to dark magick force her to leave.
