I hadn t been going around killing people, but people were hurt the memories just kept trickling in like rivulets of fresh acid dripping into my brain until I wanted to scream. It was in my blood, I knew. A darkness. The darkness. I had inherited it, along with my immortality and my black eyes.

What do you get when you combine immortals and vylieings? Sweet, sweet muscles.
Immortal Beloved is about the struggles of Nasty, a young girl by appearance, who is really hundreds of years old. Not knowing much about who, what and why she is, Nasty finally starts losing her friends. She also finds herself becoming extremely more dangerous with age. So with that, the party girl goes to a small town to live with a bunch of other immortals. It is like a bunch of Lindsay Lohen's doing rehab in this strange and unusual place. There Nasty learns to live, interact and be at peace with mortals. She also meets a mysterious vyleing like man who seems to be somewhat familiar to her but she can’t place why.
This book is worth reading and I can’t wait for the second one.
