Gillian Shields continues to impress me with the Immortal series. While it doesn’t have the world’s best plot, there is something addictive about it that instantly pulls you into the story. Eternal is told from Sarah’s perspective, which surprised me, but actually makes sense. The first two novels are told from Evie’s perspective because she represents both water and fire, Eternal is told from Evie’s perspective because she represents Earth.
While I liked reading from Sarah’s perspective, there were times when she irritated me. She was clearly a little bitter about her selfless image, but geez—chill out please. I am not a huge fan of angst. I was surprised to learn how proud she could be because I didn’t get that vibe from her at all in the previous novel.
The plot is more or less the same as it is in the previous novels, but it doesn’t feel overdone. There are always new mysteries to solve, which keeps things interesting. There is a bit of romance as well, but it plays a smaller role than it did the previous novels.
