Review: Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith


Title: Eternal

Author: Cynthia Leitich Smith

Publisher: Walker Books Ltd.

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, demoted to human guise as the princess’ personal assistant, has his work cut out for him with the Master’s Death Day gala fast approaching. Can Zachary save his girl’s soul and redeem himself before all hell arrives, quite literally, on their castle’s doorstep? In alternating points of view, vampire Miranda and angel Zachary navigate a cut-throat eternal aristocracy as they play out a dangerous-and often darkly hilarious-love story for the ages

I’ve only recently finished this book. I got it 2 days ago. I just couldn’t put it down! It’s a once off book so the whole story is in this book. It’s a serious Romeo and Juliet story, but at the same time it’s a whole new concept. If you like Twilight you will love this book! It’s a lovely book but the only thing I would say is that I don’t think the majority of the male population will like it. There’s a lot of lovey-doveyness and I’m not sure if the macho-men will appreciate it. (But if you do, more power to ya!)

Downside: At the start I felt that the author didn’t make the transition between real life and fantasy very smoothly. She didn’t explain why things happened very well and you become confused for a while. But that’s the only bad thing I have to say!

Rating: 9/10

P.S: I very almost cried at one point so be warned!
