About the Author
Shevaun DeLucia lives in upstate New York with her husband, four children, and two dogs. As a stay-at-home mom while her children were young, she fell in love with reading. She indulged in the small moments that took her away from the reality of her loud, overly rambunctious household, bringing her into a world of fantasy. When reading wasn’t enough to satisfy her, she turned to writing, determined to create the perfect ending of her own.

I am a sucker for a good love story. It doesn’t matter the age of the characters just how well they are written. In Eternal Mixture, we are introduced to Raina and Brent. These are two characters that I pulled for from the beginning. Although without giving too much away, Brent really needs to learn that making a girl jealous is not the way to her heart. It’s just the way to break it.
The story takes place while Raina and Brent are still in high school. But their connection is unmistakable. Brent is a little too forward in the beginning but once into the book a little bit it is explained why he is the way that he is. It is a great story that has me hoping that there is life after death in the form of reincarnation, and that we all have a soulmate out there somewhere.
The detail that was focused on in this story wasn’t always about the surroundings but more so on the character development. The author really takes time to grow the relationship between Brent and Raina but also made sure that the friendships that Raina has with her friends doesn’t suffer. It is so easy to see how big of a heart she has and even though she falls pretty fast for Brent she knows and realizes that her girlfriends have always been there for her and always will. She makes sure not to cut them out of her life and help them as much as she would have before she and Brent met.
The journey that the author takes the reader on is a wonderful journey of life, love and the possibility that there is a possibility in eternal life. The fantasy that is Eternal Mixture is one that I thoroughly enjoyed, and look forward to reading the other books in the series.
Find out in this Teen Fantasy book which in a way reminds me of the classic novel "Tuck Everlasting". - External Mixture.
We open with Raina in her high school interacting with her friends. There is a new kid in school and her reaction to the situation is pretty priceless. She wants nothing to do with the gossip, the boy, nothing. She has no interest in laying her eyes on him no matter what the other people are saying. Raina was a strong character, a person who knew who she was. Until Brent walked into her life. It was pretty funny that she tried to fight the connection anyway possible in the beginning. Don’t the characters know by now you can’t do that. Hahaha. After a little while it became frustrating but before it got to the point of no return she gave in and it was magic.
Brent was another great leading man. He walked right up to her and pretty much told her he was waiting for her. He beat around the bush but I mean I knew what he was trying to say. He made me so mad with the whole Casey thing. I’m glad that didn’t last long. Guys should no making us jealous with the one person we absolutely hate in high school does the opposite of what they are trying to accomplish. He was a patient and understanding character too, which made him even better. I mean he has been waiting forever and he didn’t mind waiting for her to work through it.
Some of the writing bothered me a little bit but I was able to overlook it. There is nothing wrong with it, it just isn’t something that particularly enjoy. There were just too many sentences describing the same things over and over again. There was only one other thing that bothered me and that was the addition of Jason. I understand him as a bad guy but I don’t need another love triangle. When you set it up as sol-mates it needs to stay that way. I mean it does but if there is another book I hope it stays that way.
I hope there is another book. I feel like we got to know the characters and the Immortal story but there was never a real element of danger that was supposed to be felt near the end. It felt like the author set it up and then the next page ended it. The story could end but I feel like there is more to tell.
Anyways if there is another one I will be reading it!
