I struggle with this review because I truly did enjoy this book and don't want to come off as giving a bad review because in no way was this a bad book. I just have a couple issues with the book that has me only giving this 4 stars.
Eternal Immortality picks up immediately after Eternal Island ends. Ariana and Abe have fallen in love and are to be married. Eternal Immortality begins with the reception after their wedding but the storyline is a little chaotic. Eternal Immortality isn't just about Abe and Ariana beginning their life together. It also includes
Rainey and her former lover Deus, who has returned to the island unbeknownst to Rainey. Drama ensues with everyone's love life it seems. We see Becky have a tantrum numerous times and I found myself screaming at her to "grow up!". Even Ariana's human friends from her old life that come to live on the island have relationship issues and the result leaves them changed forever. It's not that I didn't like all these mini-stories surrounding the characters, but it was too much. If all these issues everyone has was spread out throughout the series, I think it would have been better received. I felt myself agreeing with Abe when he stomps his foot and is like "No! No, no, no! This isn't happening. Are you all crazy?" There's so much chaos and everything just happens too quickly. Not to spoil anything, but many of the characters turn into vampires in the book and I just didn't care for the transformation process. It was too fast. It was like "I want to be a vampire, BAM!" they are a vampire. I wish the storyline had been more centered around Abe and Ariana. And if there wasn't enough love life issues, Abe's brother Will enters the picture, falls in love with Becky and then they have drama. And all this drama isn't even the main storyline. The island is threatened once again, and this time its Lucifer's second in command that threatens to destroy them all. Ariana, being the all-powerful witch, is the only one that can save everyone, though Rainey and Dues do their best to protect everyone as well, with tigers eye stones.
With all that being said, I really did enjoy the book. I couldn't put it down and wanted more when I finished the book. I know there will be more to come with these likeable characters and I can't wait to see what happens next. I do hope the next book is more centered around Abe and Ariana and their baby that will most likely make its debut in the next book.
