Review: Darkness Falls by Cate Tieran

Darkness Falls by Cate Tieran
Published by Hodder



I'm still here. Still immortal. The eagerly anticipated sequel to Immortal Beloved, the deeply alluring gothic romance.

Reyn: the thorn in my side, nightmare of my past, destroyer of my family, constant irritant of my now . . . and the one whose fevered kisses I had relived over and over as I lay exhausted and unable to sleep.

And yet night after night, he--who has kicked down hundreds of doors--had not brought himself to knock on mine.

Are you dizzy from being flung into my world like this? I feel the same way every morning when I open my eyes to find I'm still me, still here


***
Darkness Falls is the sequel to Immortal beloved and a completely different read from book one.

The thing I love about this series is Nasty's narrative. The way she is written is so entertain and actually really comical in places as she talks away to herself about the things going on around her.

I enjoyed the first part of the book finding out more about River and her commune and Nasty's place in it but I actually loved it even more once Nasty got out and back with Incy and she glams right up in all her gorgeous clothes and really lives it up. I loved getting that insight into the girl she used to be.

As with the first book I love getting the glimpses into Nasty's past through the flashbacks.

It's not until Incy and Nasty spend a bit of time together that you start to see that things aren't all that right with Incy. You get to see the dark side of him that is hinted at at the very start of the series in more detail and that's when things start to really kick off.

The last section where every thing comes to a head is where all the action is and was the part where I literally couldn't put the book down because I needed to know what happened next.

The ending of the book was really sweet setting up the story ready to go into the final book. I am really looking forward to seeing what happens in the last instalment.
