Eternal is the second book in the
: After Dark series.
And as usual, C.C. Hunter does NOT disappoint. Della, on the outside, is a
snarky and sarcastic person, but she is one of the nicest people (or vampire!)
ever. She's loyal, passionate, and caring. After being reborn, she is able to
see and communicate with ghosts. She is visited by a ghost that doesn't
communicate very well and is thrown into visions. She learns of two newly
turned vampires, dying and trapped. Even though everyone says they are dead,
she is determined to save the two kids and prove everyone wrong. Even though
everything is working against her, she never gives up. Her heart breaks, and
she has many of her own problems but she shoves everything aside to focus on
helping two complete strangers. Even as her heart battles between loving Steve
and Chase, she never wavers in her mission. THAT is a protagonist I would want
my daughter to look up to. Shadow
Della is someone that I can follow and love. She's not a typical teenaged girl who will wallow in self pity over nonsense issues. She is a true hero, even if she sometimes views herself as a monster.
Even though I am upset about the cliff-hanger ending (and about certain people leaving), I CAN'T wait for the next book. C.C. Hunter is very talented and knows how to weave a story that almost anyone can love.
Even if you haven't read her Shadow Falls Series, you can still read Della's story, BUT I HIGHLY recommend you read
first. Reborn is
the first book in Shadow
Falls : After Dark. If you
haven't read it yet, you should because Della is a protagonist worth rooting
