Eternal – Spotlight & Review


  • Mood: if I told you I’d have to kill you
  • Listening To: Combichrist
  • Currently Reading: Unshapely Things
  • Location: wrapped in blankets with my heating pad

Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple days. I was reading The Vampire Diaries: The Fury & Dark Reunion, but I just can’t seem to get through it. I will never say that there is a “bad” book, but there are some books that I just can’t seem to maintain interest in at times. I’ll try again another time, and post the review then. In the mean-time, I cheated and am half way through Unshapely Things by Mark Del Franco. It’s really good so far. And to be totally frank, I really shouldn’t be reading anything right now because I’m overdue on my writing assignment for school. So until I get the finished piece off to be graded, I’m just going to post reviews on books I’ve read in the last month or two, as well as continue to add to my bookshelf list. So here’s the review:

( from back cover ) “Centuries ago, the shipwrecked vampire clan known as the Kahills came ashore on the sleepy Delaware peninsula of Clare’s Point. In Eternal, V.K. Forrest introduces readers to the ravishing, undead Fia Kahill, an FBI agent, who’s in danger from a vampire slayer – and the one man she must resist but can’t…

ETERNAL   FBI agent Fia Kahill has just learned her cousin Bobby McCathal is dead. His body is found burned, and his head and hands are missing – the unmistakable calling card of a vampire slayer. When more vampires’ corpses surface, Fia knows it’s only a matter of time before the killer catches up to her. But that’s not her only worry. She’s been assigned to work with FBI agent Glen Duncan who is the spitting image of Ian, the man she once loved – and the man who betrayed her…

Four hundred years ago, Ian used his relationship with Fia to infiltrate the clan and kill as many of them as he could. Fia promised herself she would never make the mistake of loving a human again. With the murders in Clare Point escalating, Fia has no choice but to trust Glen even as her promise is becoming more difficult to keep. Fia wants Glen like no other man she’s ever desired – and before she knows what’s happening, she is deeply immersed in a forbidden love affair. But this time the consequences could be far graver than Fia ever could have imagined. For a killer has her in his sights as his next deadly victom…”

I liked this book, the author creates an interesting history for this clan of vampires. I also liked the way that it shows the “humanity” of vampires being vulnerable in both emotions and afraid for their lives. There’s action, romance, conflict and a satisfactory conclusion. The charcters are realistic, easy to empathize with and fun to read about. I’ll be looking for more books by this author, and this one stays on my “keeper” shelf!
