    One thought on “Darkness Falls”

    1. Darkness Falls (IB 02) by Cate Tiernan: 2.5 “Timely Message” Stars.“…as my mother’s daughter, my father’s heir. Somehow I’d missed the inescapable inevitability that I would reveal myself to be just as dark as they had been.” ~NastasyaAre we doomed to repeat the sins of our ancestors? Are we born bad? Or do we become bad? Are our actions a product of our DNA? Or our choices? Can we change who we are by changing what we do? Is good or bad a choice? Or a legacy?In Cate Tiernan’s [...]

    2. Darkness Falls is the second in Cate Tiernan’s Immortal Beloved trilogy. In Immortal Beloved, the first book, we met Nastasya, a burned-out immortal seeking enlightenment and redemption at the pastoral River’s Edge community. Darkness Falls continues her story, and book three will be titled Immortal Light.Darkness Falls has the polar opposite of middle-book syndrome. Nastasya has a fantastic character arc here. She went through a huge amount of growth in Immortal Beloved, but all of that is [...]

    3. If possible, I love Nastasya more now. Also Reyn. Also everything about this book.I managed to beg an ARC from the Little Brown booth at the IRA convention this weekend, and then I promptly devoured the entire book on my way home. So good. So addictive.At the end of Immortal Beloved, you think that Nas has her life in order: she's staying at River's Edge, she and Reyn have confronted their shared past, he's hot, she's hot, it's all good!Yeah. No. Because there is too much of Nas's past boiling i [...]

    4. Five stars because I had to read this in a single day, because I was thoroughly - and shamelessly - satisfied with the ending, and because Tiernan's writing is just so. damn. good. I love the way she seemlessly incorporates flashbacks from different eras of Natasya's 450+ years. I usually get frustrated with such interruptions in a narrative, if they are too frequent. But here, with a few exceptions, they are just as engaging and vital as the main narrative. I almost gave it four stars, because [...]

    5. We are lucky ! I'm just so happy to be french right now. I read Immortal Beloved at the beginning of september and I was eagerly waiting for the second one Darkness Falls. But then I saw that the release date has been changed to January 2012 I was mad but as I said we are lucky in France because the release date was still September 14th ! I didn't know if I wanted to read it in french because I don't really like reading a translation of a book especially an english book Fortunetely I still bough [...]

    6. Immortal males should not be allowed to look like Viking gods. There should be a law against it - because you WANT to read the book for the strong heroine, the fight for good against evil, the heartbreak, the sorrow, the gory scenest scanning the pages for the words 'Reyn' or 'Viking god', which I will readily admit to doing on more than one occasion.Loved the book and it was a brilliant sequel. Let's just say that immortal rehab sounds like a holiday resort - activities, friendships, good food, [...]

    7. 2.5 stars? It took 350 pages before Nas figured out that oh she's got strong powers too! Also, i got fed up with the i want him but i shouldn'tthing she's got going on for Reyn. I sure hope she sticks to her decision this time around.Or maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this book. Oh well.

    8. Right. So book 2 . . . pretty darn good. Not as book as the first one, but not significantly worse either. It's just that a lot of the middle was full of necessary--wait for it--DARKNESS. You know, like book 2 in Twilight. Bella is miserable for SOOOOO long, but by the end it's all nice and cheery again.Onto book 3!!!

    9. Thiswas not nearly as good as the first book in the series. Why is it that every time I find a female protagonist I actually like, she seems doomed to take a turn toward Idiotville and reside there for 95% of the sequel? *Rubbing hand over face* It's like some kind of sequels curse. This book did eventually redeem itself when Nasty finally wised up a bit at the end, but her little realizationat moment where she was like, "Wait, I'm powerful!".I was sitting there, staring blankly at my Kindle and [...]

    10. I found the author's voice slightly more muted in this second volume. The plot was highly predictable and frustrating - the character is much too smart not to have figured out some of the things that were presented as such. Overall, it felt like filling, this second volume. I am now reading the third one, and all of the above-menioned points are no longer an issue. Still, a nice read, guaranteed to draw a giggle here and there. Along with the occasional slapping of the forehead in frustration - [...]

    11. Actually it's 2.5 stars. The writing is decent and parts of the story is likable, and it isn't so heavily romance-focused. But the main character's stupidity and her ignoring all the bad omens, her being unable to see what has always been right in front of her makes me so mad

    12. Even better than the first book. Cate tiernan never disappoints can't wait to read the last book hopefully have more reyn in it

    13. Final rating: 4.5/5 starsWow, this book was even better than the Immortal Beloved! I didn't even know how fast i absorbed this book. I just knew that i started it, and suddenly it was over. But i say wow for the ending, we see some action there :D and plot twists ofc.Beware, spoilers are real :P____________________________________________Story: ____________________________________________My body was not ready after all.Anyway-this was cool book. I had expected some things to happen, like Nasty e [...]

    14. Ouaw ! Quel plaisir de lire ce livre ! J'avais vraiment adoré le premier tome, mais celui-ci dépasse de loin mes espérances ! Je suis devenu accro à Nasty, à son histoire, à sa répartie et à ses réflexions ! Puis le monde des Immortels est juste passionnant ! Cet opus m'a vraiment beaucoup plu ! Cate Tiernan a vraiment un don pour nous transmettre de nombreuses émotions et nous faire vivre ses romans !La Traque nous ramène directement à River's Edge, lieu où Nasty, Reyn et les autre [...]

    15. Just when you thought Nastasya might be on the road to recovery at the end of Immortal Beloved, there's suddenly a pot-hole in that road and she goes speeding straight into it. But the difference this time, is while she does make stupid mistakes and falls back into the destructive pattern of her old life, she's gone back in a changed woman. She has knowledge she never had before and, most annoyingly, she's acquired a few pesky morals. All thanks to her time at Rivers Edge, rehab for wayward immo [...]

    16. This review is also available over at my blog.________________________Actual rating is 4.5 stars.Although I definitely adored this book, unfortunately for me it's not exactly as awesome as its predecessor.The story continues where the last book left off. Nastasya is still in River's Edge, but things are suddenly going downhill in her life, and she feels surrounded by dark magick. She then finds out that her old friends are in town, including Innocencio, her ex-best-friend who wants her back in h [...]

    17. You can read all of my reviews at Alluring Reads.I am absolutely loving my luck with trilogies right now! Darkness Falls did not disappoint at all. Cate Tiernan gave what were already great characters an amazing amount of depth and made me love them even more. Darkness Falls starts off immediately following Immortal Beloved. Nas is still at River's Edge and she is doing great. But slowly things start taking a turn for the worse, weird things are happening and she has a sickening feeling that it [...]

    18. So after my re-read I try to think more of themes and stuff while reading a book. I like how the Immortal Beloved series is about choice. Picking right from wrong and good from evil. There is never only good and never only evil. The biggest part is the gray part or the shadow part or whatever you want to call it. And maybe the most beautiful part is that Nasty admits it's not only for immortals but also for normal people. We all make bad choices and we all agree that life sometimes isn't fair, w [...]

    19. I've been waiting a long time for this one and I'm lucky I wasn't disappointed. Nastasya has had a rough 450-year long existence where on her roughest days she might pass as a young girl in her early twenties. In the last book we found out about some of her more shocking history and in this installment we see her strive more for what she wants as well as a lot of Oprah aha! moments. She has to confront her shadier acts in history and discover what it may cost her to move forward. I love that the [...]

    20. 3 and 3/4 starsThis book takes off within a few days of when the first one ends and has quite a bit more action and stoy development. I enjoyed it more than the first, but I'd have liked a little better pace. The first half sort of drags a bit and for a being who is over 450 years old, Nastasya seems to have so little self-awareness and tends to always jump to the wrong conclusion. She seems a bit dim for someone with so much life experience. She mentions that she never graduated high school or [...]

    21. I could honestly leave the series after this book because I liked the way things wrapped up. Like, this could totally be a duology. But I've obviously enjoyed the first two books immensely -- I listened to them both in a single day -- and even though there's apparently no audio available for the final book, I'll just have to make time to read it. Probably while I'm at work tomorrow, lol.I really like Nasty's character growth, the slow burn thing she has going with Reyn, the pure fucking evil unl [...]

    22. This book is so much better than its predecessor because Nasty is just awesome, the plot is addictive, and there are fun smoldering tension-filled scenes with Reyn.

    23. I absolutely loved this book!! Cate Tiernan has to be one of my favorite authors. She writes so smoothly and beautifully! I can't wait until the third book comes in the mail!

    24. 1 I absolutely LOOOVVVEEEE Nastasya’s quirky, sarcastic character2 would it KILLL someone to make Reyn a LITTLE bit more dominant- coz let’s all agree that if was a bit more dominant and possessive Nas, then the story would be THAT much more better I love the writing AND the humor, bu I I felt the plot go over VERY slowly. For once, I want every twist and turn imaginable to be in one book- too much to ask??

    25. Teensy tiny (feels like it should be tinsy-long-I) bit below a 5, but I have to say, I really love this Nastasya chic.Review to come here:I think many of the things I said in my review of Immortal Beloved apply here as well.  I mean, as much as I loved Immortal Beloved, I still went into this one a little leery (she leaves Rivers Edge?  WTH?), so I was prepared to face some sophomore slumpage.  But again, Cate Tiernan thwarts me.  There was a teeny bit of the slump, but for the most part, I [...]

    26. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.Quick & Dirty: The sequel wraps up loose ends from Immortal Beloved with humor, action, and more swoony romance with our favorite Viking God.Opening Sentence: ”I want you.”The Review:The novel’s first line, “I want you.” comes from Reyn, so believe me when I say he has you swooning from page one. Nastasya is still at River’s Edge, learning Tähti magic and clean living and hiding from her not-so-BFF Innocencio. She’s still a smart-a$$ immort [...]

    27. An immortal saga; ones dark past comes into the light.I was extremely excited to be able to read an Immortal Beloved novel, having been so lucky as to win it from a book blog giveaway; hence once I began reading Darkness Falls I was unable to put it down. Captivating and spellbinding this is a story that I lost myself within, following the immortal Nastasya as her past catches up with her. After living for more than four-hundred years she still faces desire, death and heartache, as more truths t [...]
