Eternal: Shadow Falls: After Dark (2014) C.C. Hunter

EternalThis is the second full book of Della Tsang’s story (although she has been the center of several novellas, one of which is the reason I started reading this series).

Della coming to terms with being one of the Reborn, and also dealing with her continued guilt over the death of her cousin Chan.

She also has to deal with the two boys who are interested in her, which is something she doesn’t particularly want to do, since she hasn’t wanted to care about anyone since she was turned. She’s come to care about her friends, but a romantic relationship is something else entirely.

Della is a very prickly personality, because she has been hurt (and continues to be hurt) by those who she loves.

She’s also a smartass.

He looked appalled at the idea of communicating with spirits, as if she’d asked him for a recommendation on which tampon to use.

I love the world building in this series. She has an interesting take on the supernatural, and having teenagers as her main characters allows us to see those supernatural entities as little different from other teenagers except in abilities–abilities they need to learn to control and hide from the general populace.

It’s a series I’m continuing to enjoy, and I can’t wait for the concluding book in Della’s series.
