Darkness Falls by Cate Tiernan

Darkness Falls by Cate Tiernan
"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 som 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.

She falls back into her old, hard partying ways, but will her decision lead her into the hands of a dark immortal? Or will it be her first step to embracing the darkness within her?"- summary from Amazon

I really enjoyed the first book in this series because I don't read many books about regular immortals. It's a bit of a breath of fresh air. Plus, Nas is a great main character with a great sense of humor. I really enjoy reading about her adventures, both present and past. I liked seeing the glimpses into her past and how it shaped her to be who she is.

The climax of the book is very action-filled and I had so much trouble putting it down. Tiernan really knows how to pace the plot and keep the action moving along at a good clip. It's almost 400 pages, but it felt much shorter.

Overall, a great sequel and I'm really excited to see how the trilogy wraps up in the final book (which will hopefully be out later this year, even though this one was pushed back due to cover change, but that was a good choice because the old cover looked like an 80s VC Andrews cover.).
