Darkness Falls (Immortal Beloved Book Two)

By Cate Tiernan

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

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

He is the thorn in my side, nightmare of my past, destroyer of my family . . . 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 had kicked down hundreds of doors - had not brought himself to knock on mine.

Nastasya has lived for more than 400 years but things never get any easier. As she learns more about herself, she questions whether it will ever be possible to break free from the darkness of her former life. Can she turn away from the one person she wants to be with above all others? Should her past determine who she should - or should not - love?

Desire, death and painful secrets are revealed in this compulsively addictive sequel to Immortal Beloved.

Beyond the colonial city of Essenwald lies the Vorrh, the forest which sucks souls and wipes minds.
