Nastasya has spent the last century living as a spoiled, drugged-out party girl. She feels nothing and cares for no one. But when she witnesses her best friend, a Dark Immortal, torture a human, she realizes something’s got to change. She seeks refuge at a rehab for wayward immortals, where she meets the gorgeous, undeniably sexy Reyn, who seems inexplicably linked to her past.

Nastasya finally begins to deal with life, and even feels safe—until the night she learns that someone wants her dead.

Cate Tiernan, author of the popular Sweep series, returns with an engaging story of a timeless struggle and inescapable romance, the first book in a stunning new fantasy trilogy.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A beautifully written trilogy starter, Immortal Beloved shows the true hardships and pain that come with a life lived too long. Nastasya fights so hard to keep sorrow from her life, using sarcasm to hide, but in time the readers are gliding along by her side, relishing the tale.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “Tiernan gives Nastasya a strong, distinctive voice and wonderfully realized perspective on the joys and horrors of history…First in a projected trilogy, the story necessarily leaves many questions open, but achieves a satisfying arc.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Kelly Lintz’s delivery is spot-on in her portrayal of Nastasya and her witty, sarcastic, laugh-out-loud personality, as well as in relating the events occurring in the story. Listeners will eagerly await the next volume of this intriguing, multilayered story.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Strong characterization powers this fast-paced novel. Nastasya’s…edgy, sarcastic voice, combined with her spunky attitude and raw, sincere emotions, makes her one to whom it is easy to become attached…Readers who enjoy character-driven works of romantic fantasy will flock to this book.”

    VOYA

  • “With plenty of immortal teen angst and threats of lurking evil, this makes a strong choice for paranormal bibliographies.”

    " slow beginning chapters... wrapping my mind around the Immortals world was a bit confusing in the start, but once the story found it's pacing .. WOW! Very original plot.. refreshing after having read so much UF/Paranormal. I remember falling instantly in love with the Sweep series back in the day and I find myself loving this as well. The heroine really captures your emotions and you really understand why she is the way she is... just waiting to see more of the hero. Can't wait to read more! "

    " Nastasya is bad-freaking-ass. I love the whole immortal idea, and this book was a rewarding read. The characters were very real, and I identified a lot with Nastasya in her jpurny to self discovery and finding a way to get back in touch with life. When you live an immortal life, you're bound to develop some serious emotional baggage. I loved the themes in this series, how in addition to the main conflict of this story, the characters all have some inner conflict they're trying to solve. Very real, very emotional, with a happy ending. You should totally read this book. It rocked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 2/12/2014

    " It took me a several tries before I finished this book. It didn't grab me for the longest time. I would read it in between other books. I just couldn't get into it. Then I finished all the ones I was reading and picked this one up again to kill some time before my next book binge. I have to say that once I just let go and READ it I was off and running. I read it in a day. And liked it way better then I thought I would. I'm picking up book 2 this weekend... :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren (Sugar & Snark) | 1/25/2014

    " The ending of this book kind of leaves you hanging, but Nasty is such a great character I can't help thinking that this book could be the begining of a really great series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lilibeth | 1/1/2014

    " A bit too detailed at times and a habitually slow pace with an even slower plot line but the story was decent and the characters relatable. "

    " This was the first book in a long time where I really just didn't want it to end. That's saying a lot, seeing as it has 400 pages. "

    " I found this book was pretty good. i didn't like Natasha's partying past and what changes that is her best friend that she thought she knew everything turns out to be cold and ruthless. i found that it went kind of slow though. but i still enjoyed it and can't wait for the next one!! "
