Eternal Love is the second book in the YA fantasy trilogy Eternal. This book was sent to me by the author. As Reign La’Roche continues to train in her abilities and learn more about her ancient bloodline of undiscovered power, Nicola and Donovan heighten their pursuit of her. She will have to rely on old and new friends to get her through these next few months of both love and anguish.
Similar to the first book in the series, Eternal Soul, the imagery was breathtaking. I also loved the flow and grace of the writing. It was really cool to have Latin, French, and English all the same book. It was surprisingly not confusing at all! I was impressed of how Eternal Love was in sync completely with the previous book.
The drama in Reign's personal life starts to take a toll on her abilities, and I loved watching her battle her internal fears of how nobody would understand her. The entrance of Detective Dominic Amoureux added a fascinating twist to the plotline beyond just another love interest as he holds secrets of his own that intertwine with Reign's. Thus, entering a whole new plotline of mystery.
Her desire to protect the ones she loves is powerful, and as Reign comes to deal with new emotions, it was exciting to watch her figure out how to not let her emotions control her, but rather aid her powers. As she gained more control over her powers, her confidence grew, and with every slip, it fell again. I loved watching her battle real life verses her visions. In Eternal Love when the pressure is heavily rested on her shoulders, I appreciated the importance of her friends to hold her up.
I highly recommend this book and cannot wait to read the final book in this trilogy, Eternal Vengeance!
