Eternal - Cynthia Smith

At last, Miranda is the life of the party: all she had to do was die. Elevated and adopted by none other than the reigning King of the Mantle of Dracul, Miranda goes from high-school theater wannabe to glamorous royal fiend overnight.

Meanwhile, her reckless and adoring guardian angel, Zachary, demoted to human guise as the princess’s personal assistant, has his work cut out for him trying to save his girl’s soul and plan the Master’s fast-approaching Death Day gala.

In alternating points of view, Miranda and Zachary navigate a cut-throat eternal aristocracy as they play out a dangerous and darkly hilarious love story for the ages.

My Opinion:

Okay so when I started this book I didn't like it, why?

  • Miranda seems wishy washy
  • The whole Father master dialog got me frustrated.
  • The relationship she had with "father" I wanted to know why she just accepted her new life and didn't question anything.
  • The whole Dracula, castle story line seemed over played and out dated.

I was about to just stop reading, but I don't like giving up on a book half read. I am pleased I did stick with it! after the first 50 or so pages the story really does get better. My main issue was I didn't really like "father" but he takes a lesser role, It focuses more on Zachary & Miranda. I love how the story was set from two points of view, Zachary is an awesome kick ass angel. Miranda finally finds her feet and I do like the character she becomes.. Life is all about choices and I'm pleased that she chose the right one.

This book is definetly worth the read and I did enjoy it in the end.. even shed a tear, BUT having said that the start of the book really spoiled it for me I feel it could of been written better.

3 & half stars
