This is the first in a series based on a community of vampires who live at Clare Point, Delaware, trying to keep their existence secret from humans having fled vampire hunters in Europe four hundred years before. The Kahill clan, the inhabitants of the village, carry out their own kind of justice on various criminals but we don't learn very much about that. The main hook of the story is FBI agent Fia Kahill who is investigating one murder in Philadelphia when she's called to investigate a beheading in her home town of Clare Point.

When Fia arrives at Clare Point she discovers another FBI Agent from the Baltimore office is also assigned to the case. Initially suspicious of Agent Glen Duncan as he resembles her former evil lover, Ian Duncan, she soon finds that Glen is rather different. However, with another old lover, Joseph, causing her problems and more of the Clare Point vampires being separated from their heads Fia doesn't know what to do and how to solve the crime in her village.

The pacing was a little off with the story dragging through quite a large proportion of this book. The explanation of the vampire world was drip-fed to the reader which made it more interesting but also left me with quite a few questions as to how their lifecycles actually worked. The heroine, Fia, wasn't a particularly sympathetic character whose interactions with other people were usually cold and uninformative. I wasn't entirely sure how she had got her job with the FBI as she didn't seem particularly skilled or diligent in the work.

There were several plot threads in the story that weren't completed or were otherwise unsatisfactory.

I liked this book. It had a slightly different slant to vampires and how they lived and died. I liked how the romance between the two FBI agents progressed and am hoping to hear more of them in the following books. I felt that Fia was able to come to a resolution about the past relationships in her life and move forward. The ending was a surprise, I hadn't expected the killer to be who it was so that was a nice twist.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

Eternal was a refreshing vampire novel, a paranormal murder mystery with a kick butt, strong female lead and an incredible supporting cast.

Unlike 'normal' vampires, the Kahill vampires are a sect of Celtic immortals cursed by God to live their lives over and over until they get it right and are forgiven by the Almighty.

Fia Kahill is one of the most human among them. Having left her home town of Clare Point years ago to pursue her career as an FBI agent she tries to distance herself from the rest of the sect as much as possible. She still struggles with what she is a bit and she finds that living as humanly as possible helps to keep her grounded. Unfortunately she still has responsibilities to her brethren, and when a murder happens in her old home town she must return and confront her past and her inner demons.

Glen Duncan is an FBI agent from another field office and is sent to Clare Point to investigate the bizarre murder of the small town postal worker. After arriving, he meets Agent Fia Kahill, a fiery, headstrong, and mysterious woman that he can't help but be drawn to. The chemistry between the two is undeniable and explosive, but neither is willing to act upon their feelings for reasons all their own.

Despite the secrets Fia's obviously keeping, the oddness of the townspeople in general, the strangeness of the case and the unsettling feelings they are having for one another, Glen and Fia work tirelessly to get to the bottom of what's going on in Clare Point and solve the murder.

The mystery was fabulous and I had absolutely no idea until the very end who the bad guy was.

This is a new take on an old story. The author, V. K. Forrest, has gone away from the traditional vampire look and attitude to bring the reader a new empathy for the vampires' plight. "Eternal" introduces us to the Kahill clan and Fia Kahill, Special Agent with the FBI. Fia has to walk the line between FBI agent and member of the Kahill High Council. It is difficult to keep one from interferring with the other. I have read 3 books in the Clare Point series and would love to see a prequal to the time before the Kahill clan moved to Delaware.

I loved this whole series of books. I just wish there were more! Just the right mix of Vamp, romance and suspense to make them "can't put it down" books!

I liked this book and will read the next one in the series. Fia is a FBI agent and also a Vampire, she's been assigned to work with FBI agent Glen Duncan, who happens to look like the man Fia once loved, and the man who betrayed her. Fia returns to her hometown when she learns that her cousin Bobby has been killed, by what appears to be the calling card of a vampire slayer, but of course Glen doesn't believe in Vampires.

The Vampires in this book all eat food, and Fia's Mother, bakes Muffins and owns a Bed and Breakfast, they also drink ale, Fia gets together with some girlfriends, at the beach and they have Martini's.

At the end of the book we find out who the killer is, but questions still remain, to be answered, so I will be on the look out for the next book.
