Book Summary:

Nastasya has spent the last century living as a spoiled, drugged-out party girl. She feels nothing and cares for no one. But when she witnesses her best friend, a Dark Immortal, torture a human, she realizes something’s got to change. She seeks refuge at a rehab for wayward immortals, where she meets the gorgeous, undeniably sexy Reyn, who seems inexplicably linked to her past.
Nastasya finally begins to deal with life, and even feels safe–until the night she learns that someone wants her dead.
Cate Tiernan, author of the popular Sweep series, returns with an engaging story of a timeless struggle and inescapable romance, the first book in a stunning new fantasy trilogy.

I really enjoyed this book and I’m not exactly sure why… the writing, the humor, the characters, the story … probably a little bit of all of it.

I almost stopped a chapter or two in due to content but the story kept me interested.  Nastasya has been around the block….  She’s immortal and has been alive for a long time so she’s seen and done just about about everything.  If that had remained the focus of the book I would have quit reading but the book was more about much more than that.  I enjoyed watching Nastasya grow and change and make discoveries about herself throughout the book.   I really do need to get a copy of the sequel soon!
