IMMORTAL BELOVED by Cate Tiernan
FANTASY
Released: Sept. 7, 2010

Despite the title, romance plays a relatively small role in this tale of compassion, rehabilitation and magick. After four centuries careening from party to party with her band of elite immortals, reckless, callous, smart-mouthed Nastasya runs away to a rural farm that serves as a sort of rehab. There she begins to confront her painful past, understand her magickal gifts and untangle her confusing knot of feelings for Reyn, another immortal staying at the farm. Despite her age, Nastasya's cynical, defiant narration is awash in contemporary slang, pop-culture references and an inventive array of curses (including a few unfortunate slurs such as "lame" and "retarded"). Clearly, historical realism is not the goal of this novel, in which eternally youthful beings gallivant from Revolutionary Paris to 1960s San Francisco with seemingly limitless wealth and freedom. What Tiernan creates instead is an easy-to-swallow story of an emotionally immature woman healing from childhood trauma. The ending is anticlimactic, but more action is sure to follow in the trilogy's next two volumes. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)Read full book review >
