    was born in New Orleans, LA, in 1961 New Orleans is one of the most interesting American cities, and it has an incredibly rich and exotic culture that had a profound influence on me Kids in other cities have lemonade stands we sold voodoo gris gris and made wax dolls in the likenesses of our enemies It s a very beautiful city, and the constant heat and humidity make gardens grow out of control There s an air of lassitude there, a general acceptance of eccentic or flamboyant behavior the heat simply makes people do crazy things.I went to school in New York, and after school went back to New Orleans Then I went back to New York Manhattan and got a job in publishing and started writing My first book, a young, middle grade chapter book, was published in 1990.Living in Manhattan was incredible, even though I didn t have a lot of money There was so much to do and see, and so many interesting people to watch There was a lot of frenetic energy there, and sometimes that felt very wearing and hard to live with After eight years I was ready for a change, and my husband and I moved back to New Orleans Are you seeing a pattern here While I was in NY, I helped edit The Secret Circle by L.J Smith I thought it was great We stayed in New Orleans five years By the time we had two small children we knew we had to find someplace safer to live I was glad my children were born in New Orleans I had been born there, and my father had, and his father had, and his father had and so on There was something about the connection of generations of blood coming from one place that I found very primal and important.Now I live in a cohousing community in Durham, NC This is the most suburban place I ve ever lived, and it s very different from living right in the middle of a city For one thing, there aren t enough coffee shops However, it s incredibly safe, and the community is very important to me There are a lot of strong women here, and I find them inspiring.Am I a witch Well, no Even Wicca is too organized a religion for me I m much idiosyncratic and just need to do my own thing, which is kind of new agey and pantheistic It s not that I don t work or play well with others, but I need to decide for myself when I do a certain thing, and how I do it However, I can really relate to Wicca, and I so appreciate its woman centeredness and its essentially female identity I love those aspects, among others.I have several favorite writers Barbara Hambly has been the biggest influence on how I describe magic She s an incredibly imaginative and empathetic writer with a gift for creating a rich, sensual world I love Barbara Pym, an English writer whose books came out mostly in the fifties She was a master at describing the thousand tiny moments that make up a woman s day how the seemingly small and inconsequential thing can suddenly take on a huge emotional importance I greatly admire P.D James She s one of the very few writers who makes me actually look up words in the dictionary She has a beautiful, precise, educated command of the language that leaves me in awe I love Philip Larkin s poetry I read a lot of nonfiction and also have some favorite romance writers Before anyone groans, let me say that these women write really well about women trying to achieve emotional fulfillment, and that s kind of what we re all doing, right I also just like reading about sex Anyway, Jennifer Crusie, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, and early Linda Howard are my faves.And then of course there s my dark side, but on that later SourceCate Tiernan is a pseudonym for Gabrielle Charbonnet

    Reviewed by Rabid ReadsHave you ever discovered a new book, by a new author, and absolutely LOVED it, so you go out and immediately buy the next book the author writes, and it s not quite as good as the first one, but it s still pretty good, so the next time a new book is released by that same author, again, you go out and buy it immediately, only this time it s not very good at all, and you start to think maybe the author is a one hit wonder that s a REALLY long, yet mostly grammatically correc [...]

    2016 Isn t it utterly marvelous, when a favorite aces the re reading experience with flying colors after almost five years 2011 I can t really comprehend that I am sitting here pressing determinedly the five star button in spite of the first chapters, which obviously have been patched together rather sloppily and almost caused me to switch books with one click on my Kindle, and in spite of the undeniable cliffy Yet here I am am doing precisely that and feeling completely comfortable with it.Real [...]

    This was a fun book that got me through a really rough weekend when nothing else was working So I guess that means it was worth every moment spent reading it And while it wasn t an instant favorite nor a must read type of rec, I do think there was a lot that kept me addicted enough to want to immediately read book two I hear book three is the best one, so I guess I ll see.There were a couple things that bothered me, but I am hoping they are ironed out as we move along in the series For now, thou [...]

    So I took a Mary Sue test for this book and it included questions such as 14 Does your character have a scar or other small flaw that is noticed by someone, but does not actually detract from your character s appearance from your point of view Check.42 Does your character always have money to spend on frivolities or whatever she really wants or needs at the time For no apparent reason EG, your character never works or gives any clue to any source of income Check.52 Your character alone uses a we [...]

    Final rating 4.75 5 starsFinal rating for the whole series 4.75 5 starsThis was so cool I like it that this book is about immortal meeting immortal, and as it seems, falling in love with immortal, and making awkward situations with immortal, instead of immortal falling in love with human I have seen that story way too many times This is something new And i like it D I was getting tired of the overused paranormal human And there is actually very little of romance between the characters, which i a [...]

    Weirdly, unexpectedly, I was sort of amazed by this I d heard of Cate Tiernan but never read anything by her I d had friends that pushed this on me especially one who shall remain Allison nameless It has a grandiose, somewhat silly title that I can t help but like because it reminds me of Gary Oldman and Beethoven But somehow I still just wasn t expecting much from it Maybe it was the idea of an eternal club kid that just made me turn up my nose and say, Um, no But for all of the good I ve heard [...]

    Let me start off by saying that I loved Cate Tiernan s Sweep series I must have read them than a dozen times Okay, I loved them all except for the last book where the main character gets old Afraid of my mortality Who me No, of course not But anyway, point is, I like Cate Tiernan s writing I like her characterizations and, most of all, I like her plotting Suffice it to say that she s mostly brilliant in my opinion So when I found out that there was a new book coming out by her, I was excited Be [...]

    I absolutely love this book It surprised me because I ve read some of Cate Tiernan s Sweep series and, while I enjoyed those, they never in a million years would have led me to believe Teirnan was capable of the kind of writing I encountered in Immortal Beloved The characters are believable, beautifully flawed, and interesting The dialog is simple and realistic The romance alternates between sweet, confusing, terrifying, and heart wrenching At first glance it may appear that the protagonist is a [...]

    I LOVE this story I LOVE it so much, I stopped reading it I will control myself and wait for the other two books in the trilogy to come out so that I won t sit around bemoaning the wait I am so into this story, so into the guy, that I just need to back off This is the type of teen book that easily satifies an adult reader These charactars are less immortal teenagers than immortal beings that happen to look like teens, but don t necessarily act like them The charactar s navigation of the timeless [...]

    I picked this up as an ARC at ALA, mostly because I saw the words Viking god on the back, then promptly stuck it on the bottom of my to read pile MISTAKE I should have read it immediately What a fabulous book I was giddy as I read it GIDDY First of all in our things to love our protag, Nastasya, a name that I didn t care for, and thought on the first page, I m going to hate her soon, because of her name But it isn t her real name, it s not even close, and the reason why no one has called her her [...]

    When you re out of audiobook options and you stumble upon a book at the library that you didn t even know you needed to read That s this book I d seen a few friends enjoy this series over the years, but I paid it little mind as I was rocking and rollin through my own TBR I should know better it s the quiet books, the ones that get less attention that usually end up being well worth my time And this book was, especially with that narrator She had Nasty s snark and attitude down pat Such a fun and [...]

    Dear Immortal Beloved,I had my doubts from the very beginning You are not the sort of book I usually grab Party girl immortal, rehab center, undeniably sexy dude these are all warning signs for me But I had to read you for several reasons So I set aside my doubts and went into you with an open mind I bet you fifty bucks to guess what my response was.Nastasya is a 600 years old immortal She s experienced every horror life has to offer Her family was murdered in front of her very eyes, she s been [...]

    Not for the first time, I am intensely annoyed at whoever named this book Actually, this series as a whole If you re anything like me, then you ve been burned by the YA Paranormal Genre too many times to count and have solidly shut and locked that door behind you, burning the key while you re at it Yup, that s right, I have moved onto brighter satisfying pastures Thus, you can imagine my surprise when I was recommended Immortal Beloved by a close and trusted friend In my mind, the words Immorta [...]

    It s hard, Reyn said It s the hardest thing I ve ever done It s a constant battle It s life or death And why do you try Because to not try is to admit the other side has won To not try is to embrace death and eternal darkness And in that way lies madness and despair and unending pain My casting Just a little bit younger, considering Reyn supposed to look 20 years old and Nastasya 17 years old I have a hate love relationship with this book I love the story, the finding yourself, finding a place t [...]

    Immortal Beloved is now one of my favourite PNR UF series.This trilogy reminded me of the Vampire Academy books, except much improved in basically every aspect.I liked almost all the characters, which is rare for me It s set in sort a centre for troubled Immortals so everyone was flawed, yet interesting and totally relatable Nasty was such a great heroine and I loved seeing her character develop throughout the series What I liked most about her was her sense of humour There was a couple times I [...]

    TBR Reduce Challenge 28 2011 Arlene I don t really have much to say about Immortal Beloved I didn t hate it nor did I love it The writing is well done the concept intriguing and it s characters likable.Nastasya is a pretty complex character who has been immortal for the last 450 years and at the start of the story we find her scared and nervous about what she had seen her friend do What he s become How that darkness that s very much apart of her is something she wants nothing to do with So she r [...]

    Is it weird that I m wavering whether to give this book 3 or 5 stars, and not something in between 4 star books are my babies and not given out lightly hugs IMMORTAL BELOVED really did something for me I lament the repetition in paranormal literature nowadays, but while immortality is not news, the careful way in which Cate Tiernan layered this story is something to take note of.Tiernan incorporates flashbacks into the narrative in a way that doesn t feel forced At first we think we know what th [...]

    Rese a librosdelcielo 20Re lecturaAmor inmortal es un libro que se devora por su agilidad y el sarcasmo con el que est contado Gracias a la historia de los inmortales nos tropezamos con unos seres sobrenaturales distinto a lo acostumbrado existen m s cosas aparte de vampiros y lic ntropos y resulta muy curioso que te cuenten historias de su vida en a os pasados.

    It is with a heavy heart that I finished this book Why was it heavy, you ask Because it made me realize that I ve got about a full year until the next book in the series is supposed to be released For once I m reading one of Tiernan s series not had the luxury of having all of it finished by the time I started reading it.The Immortal Beloved trilogy follows the character of Nastasya aka Nasty , an immortal being who has spent much of the last century drunk or otherwise incapacitated It s easier [...]

    Something about this novel captivated me, as is always the case with Cate Tiernan novels Pinning it down is often curious.As a huge fan of Cate Tiernans Sweep and Balefire series , I was hesitant to read these, fearing they might not be as good While I will always reserve a deep connection and love, of the Sweep series especially, it having been essential to influencing me as I grew from a teenage boy, into a young adult, I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery set forth and subsequently revealed in Im [...]

    Gotta admit that I am a little perplexed at the high rating this novel has on GoodReads Not that I think it s bad exactly I was entertained enough to finish it , but it s fairly seriously flawed for the first book of a YA supernatural romance trilogy Here s why I think so Yes, there needs to be lots of exposition to start a series, but come on already expedite the plot MORE needs to happen, seriously It s not until the last third of the book that magic, flashbacks, and making out get things frot [...]

    My review of Immortal Beloved on my blogThis is probably going to be a short review because I just loved the book without much of a reason as to why Immortal Beloved is about Nastasya, an over 400 year old Immortal , which is just a regular human who is immortal, but can also perform magick After 100 years of living the same crazy life she s been living, she decides she needs change after her best friend creates dark magic that bothers her She leaves England and ends up in Massachusetts were she [...]

    I really enjoyed this book and I m not exactly sure why the writing, the humor, the characters, the story probably a little bit of all of it I almost stopped a chapter or two in due to content but the story kept me interested Nastasya has been around the block She s immortal and has been alive for a long time so she s seen and done just about about everything If that had remained the focus of the book I would have quit reading but the book was about much than that I enjoyed watching Nastasya g [...]
