Immortal Beloved: Cate Tiernan: : Books
Questions about identity and morality plague Nastasya, an immortal. A heavy-drinking party girl, she speaks as a 21th-century teen, though she was born in Her connections with friends who flagrantly exploit their magic powers, flippantly causing death and pain to others, have finally set her on a quest for guidance. She looks for River, a calm, intelligent, and patient mentor who heads a retreat in Massachusetts called River’s Edge.
It is for immortals who seek self-knowledge. Independent Nastasya has trouble following the precepts of the group, but she perseveres because she desperately needs to get beyond the pain of her childhood and the brutal destruction of her family centuries earlier. The other students at River’s school are all working through their own personal difficulties, and each character is interestingly drawn. Among them is Reyn, a handsome Nordic fellow whom Nastasya tries to ignore at first because he reminds her of the raiders who murdered her family.
The truth of their dark past together becomes a background for their developing connection and strong mutual attraction. Intrigue, humor, pathos, and underlying wisdom combine to make a fascinating read.
The open ending naturally leaves readers wondering what will happen next. Nastasya, Nasty, is a self-described tifrnan partier. When you are immortal and have seen and done everything in your plus years of life, it takes extremes to excite you. For Nasty, the extremes go too far when she watches her best friend, Innocencio, commit a violent crime, and it sends her reeling.
On this communal organic farm, Nas learns to do chores, finds peace, discovers her inherited power, and meets up with Belloved god Reyn.

Then I found her Balefire series, which was thankfully much shorter only 4 installments and it blew Sweep out the water. Nastasya, Nasty to her friends, is an immortal. No one is sure where the first immortal came from, but they can be found among every race and nationality. They also have the ability to learn and use magic.
If you know anything about Tiernan, then this is not a surprise. Tiernan excels at writing all things witchy, and Immortal Beloved is no exception. Why is it dangerous. Nasty has money and beauty and immortality and a collection of friends who have all of those things as well, and.
Nasty leaves without a word after Incy, her best friend, uses magic to break the break of a rude cabbie.
The next day, she wakes up hungover and completely disgusted, and decides that something imortal to change. So she runs to the states.
From there she enters a kind of rehab for immortals. This book would be an excellent story without the paranormal elements. And they hate each other. So the characters are awesome.
And despite what I said earlier about no one really knowing where immortals came from, the world-building in immortap series is VERY cool. I recommend it to anyone who likes witchy UF and hot Viking gods. Immortal Beloved is an excellent first installment to this excellent trilogy. One person found this helpful. This is a fantastic book.
And in it, Tiernan manages to do something not many author’s can pull off: I was not a big fan of Nastasya Nasty to her friends in the beginning, which I am certain was the point. But her frequently painful journey into acceptance and renewal was absolutely captivating.
She’s strong, funny, and thoroughly human in spite of the whole immortal thing, of course. And the less said about my first impressions of Reyn, the better. I was really wondering how in the caet anyone could make him remotely sympathetic, especially after some of the big reveals. But Tiernan immkrtal it work.
I think Tiernan really captures what it might be like to be immortal It makes sense that so many immortals go the way of Nasty and her crowd of friends and why, at the same time, a select few eventually find their way to River and attempt to regain their humanity.
This book may be too light on the “romance” element and too heavy on, well, heavy themes like hitting rock bottom, redemption, etc for some readers. If you are looking for something light and entertaining, you may want to put this on the back burner for now. But if you’re in the mood for something that will keep you thinking long after you’ve finished the story and if you can handle waiting until next year for book two. The story of Nastasya, a magickal Immortal who is almost years old, is told in first person narrative creating a hard to put down novel beoved I, personally, hated to see end.
When Nastasya aka Nasty witnesses her long time companion commit a brutal act deliberatly harming an innocent mortal, Nasty decides catd time to make a change in her life. After spending the last century indulging in whatever whim that takes her and running from the pain of her past, Nasty takes the advice of a woman she met on a lonely stretch of road years ago and heads for a group home set in Massachusetts.
Natasya isn’t sure what to expect but what she finds isn’t it! It’s a place to get back in touch with their inherited powers and the simplistics of life. For Nasty, her inherited powers were always there but never really honed; she lost her family when she was a small child and her heritage was taken from her.
As far as the simplistics, well, Nasty has acquired wealth–she doesn’t do manual labor–period. On a farm where everyone is expected to pull their own weight that can be a problem and some people at Rivers Edge feel more entitled to be there and resent Nasty for her easy going charismatic ways.
There’s the introduction of Reyn, to which there is an instant hot-cold relationship between he and Nasty along with a sense of recognition from somewhere in the past and the other Immortals at Rivers Edge are engaging vivid characters that offer much to the story. Immortal Beloved shows Nastasya’s development through her stay at Rivers Edge; the mad attempts of her dark Bleoved friends trying to find her and of course, someone at Rivers Edge doesn’t like her.
All in all, Immortal Beloved is a great start to a new series and if you are a fan of Sweep or any of Cate Tiernan’s writing, you’ll love Immortal Beloved. See all reviews.
