Nastasya has lived for hundreds of years, but for some reason, life never seems to get any better. She left her spoiled, rich girl life to find peace at River's Edge, a safe haven for wayward immortals. There, she learned to embrace River's Edge, despite some drama involving the sexy Reyn, who she wants but won't allow herself to have. But just as she's getting comfortable, her family's ties to dark magick force her to leave.
She falls back into her old, hard partying ways, but will her decision lead her into the hands of a dark immortal? Or will it be her first step to embracing the darkness within her?
Nastasya and Reyn have a thing, that is very obvious. But what about their history? I would freak out if I found out that the man I like killed my family! Even if he did lose his own family in the process. Still... He was a bad guy. Really bad, evil bad. Though it's obvious he wants to be good now, seeing how he has joined River's house. So that should say something. Right? Nastasya likes him but doesn't know what she wants from him.
And now everything that could go wrong, goes wrong after the ritual at New Year's Eve. Nasty says goodbye to darkness. But it looks like darkness isn't finished with her.
The sweet sister of Anne, Amy comes to visit. She is gorgeous and so sweet. And falls for Reyn!! That's not all. She also gets very freaky visions in her dreams about Incy, and becomes afraid of him. And last but not least, she gets fired and loses the trust of the two girls she was helping, sort of.
When she tried to get her job back and failed, she drove back in her car and the car got a life of its own. She crashed into the tree at River's house and thankfully broke only her nose.
A few days later Nasty finds out that darkness is still with her and she freaks out. It is of course then, that Incy finds her. And what does this stupid girl do? She gets back to her old life!! Incy takes her back to her old friends. And for a few moments Nastasya is happy to get back to her old life. The parties, people and room service are fantastic! Until she finds out that Incy has changed. Or was he always like this, without her noticing it?
Until one night, when they are in a freaky bar and Nasty feels the darkness in there, she realizes she doesn't belong with Incy. Thus, she wants to leave. Boz and Katy also want to leave. Incy is seemingly okay with that and they get the car and leave. However, in the car Incy gets mad and drives them to a place full of darkness. He wants the powers of Nastasya, and kills Boz and Katy first. At the last moment Nastasya is rescued (no, there are more things but you should read the book first) by River, Reyn and the teachers and they take care of her at River's house...
The last part of the book is sooo fantastic that I truly recommend you read it yourself! Then again, not only the last part of this book is fantastic, it's the whole story that is fantastic! :D
