'After some of the events I've witnessed I felt like I was a shell with nothing alive left in me.
I hadn't been going around killing people, but people were hurt - the memories just kept trickling in like rivulets of fresh acid dripping into my brain until I wanted to scream.
It was in my blood, I knew. A darkness. The darkness. I had inherited it, along with my immortality and my black eyes.' New name, new town, new life.
Nastasya has done it too often to count. And there's no end in sight. Nothing ever really ends ...when you're immortal. Captivating, intense and with an incredible and original voice, IMMORTAL BELOVED is a haunting story of friendship, love and secrets, tragedy and loss.

Review by wyvernfriend
These days she uses Nastasya as a name, she was born in 1551, an immortal who lost her family young and has watched lives pass her byAfter one of her friends does something so wantonly cruel she finds herself disturbed that she doesn't find it as disturbing as she should, she remembers an invite to River's Edge in the US, where a group of Immortals live, trying to live a better life. So she goes and has to face up to many of her demons.It's an interesting read, she has a lot of issues to deal with, not least of which is magic and someone who hates her. This series has a lot of potential. The way the immortals are depicted is pretty good and interesting. I just had a few moments where it didn't quite work for me.
