*A Night Owl Romance Reviews Top Pick* "....This book makes the reader think. I've never read such a unique mixture of witchcraft, murder, and heated romance. There were quite a few surprises that made my eyes bulge in surprise, and I loved every bit of it. If you love a jaw-dropping ending that will leave you awed, pick up a copy of IMMORTAL ECLIPSE." --Night Owl Reviews
*5 Stars* "...I really loved this book. It reeled you in from the beginning and didn't stop until the very last sentence. It has everything I love in a good book: Paranormal, mystery, the love interest, surprises. If there was a rating higher than 5 stars, this book would have received it. This is the first book I have read in a long time in the paranormal genre that kept me up until the early morning hours. Congratulations to Sherry Soule and a wonderful work of fiction." -Paranormal Romance Guild
"...From meeting the mansion's strange inhabitants, to being haunted by a vengeful ghost, to the deaths that keep on cropping up and the secrets of the Summerwind mansion, I was enthralled. Immortal Eclipse delivers a lot of chills and scary moments and intrigue that will have you jumping mingled with mystery and intrigue to keep you guessing. I loved Immortal Eclipse for a fresh, scary, and unique read and recommend it to anyone into horror movies." --Happy Indulgence Reviews

The lead character, Skyler, is fine as a romance heroine. She's got a touch of Spunky Agency, but nothing that's too annoying. Other reviewers have mentioned her obsession with clothing, but I actually found that interesting after the character explained she drew strength from dressing her best and looking good. Not a fashion person myself, I thought that was a unique touch to give the character, and the clothing descriptions really aren't that annoying. She goes back and forth between staying and leaving, and that was fine too. She was just... fine. Average. Nothing that made me think her annoying, but nothing that really made me root for her either. The love interest, Dorian, was the same for me. The plot? Nothing new, but for a romance/mystery plot, it's done perfectly well.
As an aside, Skyler sort of forgets her ambition to be a photographer later (to get her job back) which I wasn't happy about. I don't know... if I lost my job and then inherited a mansion near San Francisco, I would have sold that sucker faster than your head could spin and, if my ambition were to be a photographer, spent that money working on my portfolio and making investments. Through the first third of the book I kept thinking this, and, perhaps, I put a little too much reality into my escapism! Knowing the land prices around the San Fran area though, it was really hard to shunt that aside, heh. I kept mentally screaming at her, "SELL IT FOR THE MILLIONS IT'S WORTH, omg!"
There's one bad point that did sour me on the book, which is why I just can't give it any higher than a three. The villain is oh so obvious from the beginning. There's an attempt to humanize him later, but as soon as he stepped on stage, you knew he was Evil McEvilson come Evil some Evils at you. I kind of checked out a little there.
On the other hand, some of the descriptions were exceptionally well written. There were turns of phrases that were quite beautiful, and the setting itself was moody and a character itself. The phrase "malignant nightfall" stuck with me, which perfectly encapsulated the mood in that segment so perfect I was like... damn.
The narration was really good and smooth. It was professionally done, of that there is no doubt, and the narrator really captured Skyler's voice, which in turn made the character more enjoyable for me. She had just enough spunky agency one moment, and just enough confusion another, and just enough heartache in another, and so on. Her other voices, especially the male ones, weren't as developed, but she did a wonderful job of bringing the lead to life.
I would definitely recommend this book for romance & gothic fans. The setting really is a character unto itself, and it's really ... yes, serviceable for a romance. There's nothing new, but there's not really anything bad either. It ends just how you think it would, and I know for some people, that's really important.
This is a standalone title, with some romance, a haunting, and a whole lot of mystery.
The steam factor is low for those more conservative types out there.
♥ Story ♥
It’s an interesting story with a HEA, but boy was I exhausted when I got there. The haunting is deeper and more twisted than anyone expects. If you like mystery, the paranormal, and twisted fairy tales, this is right up your alley.
Skylar Blackwell is the heroine of the story, and she really does have a shoe problem. Really! She is a photographer by trade, that combines her shoe fetish into what she thinks is her dream career. The paranormal world though has other plans, despite her efforts to avoid it.
Before she knows it, Skylar ends up at the creepy haunted mansion left to her by her paranormal hunting uncle. There she meets the hunky Dorian Delacroix and everything goes to hell in a handbasket. She tries to be a strong skeptic, but in her efforts to not be like her family, and not to fall in love with Dorian, she tends to miss stuff.
There is great efforts put into the details of this story and the writing was very emotionally charged. There is non-stop action and turmoil at every turn. Seriously, I was drained by the end.
I feel like it could have been shorter and made more of an impact, because at over 11 hours, that is half a day of strife. Perhaps an epilogue or something of the like that had some more happy times to soothe the soul at the end. You will need something fluffier and lighter to cushion your heart after this.
♥ Author ♥
This is my first read/listen by Sherry Soule and her writing has great potential. I loved the world and character building and want to check out her other works. She currently has 3 titles on her Audible profile.
♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Courtney Parker had her work cut out for her, because there were many characters, of various ages and genders, as well as states of being. She does well at portraying the emotions the characters are feeling. I would definitely listen to her other performances.
