A fatal night… College co-ed Arielle Lloyd is on vacation with her immortal love, Sebastian Gaulle, when they receive word of a dreadful accident. Her dear friend Gabrielle hovers near death. But it’s much worst for her beloved friends, Eva and Ian. In spite of Eva’s magical abilities, their lives have been cut tragically short.
An immortal choice… Troy Vasser’s only love is Gabrielle, but on the night of the accident, his deepest concern is for their dying friends. When the life force within Ian and Eva flickered dangerously low, Troy had to make a hard choice.
He could either let them die or lose their humanity and live as immortals. So he did the only thing he could: he gave them immortality. Now it is up to Arielle to break the news to Eva before the transformation is complete.
A quest for vengeance… Danger continues to stalk Arielle’s life. Unknown to her, her new professor is an immortal, and he is furious when discovers that Arielle is wearing an amulet that should be owned by immortals only.
Sebastian’s nemesis, Annabel, has also not given up on her quest to destroy Arielle. What Annabel doesn’t realize is that Arielle’s circle of friends has drastically changed. There are two newly minted immortals that adore her and have vowed to protect her.
After reading the 4th book of this series I can guarantee you will be pleading for Book 5!! These books are not tragic cliffhangers like some series, each book has its own ending, but it simply isn’t the end of the whole story. I love that, because I get to take a breath between stories and feel like all is well for a short time. Of course, then I pick up the next in the series….
This book is fraught with tension and fear and love and friendship. The friends all worry what each other will think and if they can still be friends. You get to read about the fascinating transformation to Immortal. That is another thing that is so nice about these books, you are not left wondering how or why, you are given explanations on how these beings can live in our real world.
This book in particular, answered some of the withstanding questions I had and even a few I didn’t think of. The showdown with Annabel when she realizes that Ian and Eva are no longer merely human is sweet justice! Again, this is not the end of the series, but man there is some great fighting. There are also some very serious injuries that will have you on the edge of your seat. Especially, Arielle’s injuries…..
Buy this book!!
