It's a dark tale; almost reminiscent of a Grimm fairytale but with a mythological twist. Lol. Make sense? No? Ok... lemme try and explain. The ORIGINAL Grim fairytales were... well, grim. The tales featured graphic violence and very dark themes usually depicting world-weary people who are put in compromising and morally ambivalent situations. And Immortelle has that same underlying theme. This is what you're reading: a dark fantasy featuring an individual who is tired, and weary - but has plenty of vengeance to fuel her.
Elle Cross writes exceptionally well. Her prose is smooth and VERY descriptive. Because of this, some may call her work... slow - as in, it takes a bit to get into it. This isn't a book to speed-read through. There is a lot of character development and world building involved, and for some this is too epic fantasy. But it's truly a world you don't want to miss.
And I'm moving on, now. Lol.
This book is an emotional rollercoaster and it's a very painful journey for Immortelle. However, she is a complete badass who also happens to have support from some devastating and powerful Horsemen.
It's a journey of painful memories and past life experiences. In which, Immortelle is trying to gain back.
Heat level: there's a certain scene that is just... powerful, full of emotion and passion. It's not descriptive, nor crass. It's just perfect because it is filled with a certain individuals longing for Immortelle.
This novel is FULL of intense feels. It's one ride you shouldn't pass up!
I am still not sure whether this is a heartbreaking paranormal romance with an urban fantasy feel or an urban fantasy with a paranormal romance feel featuring a heartbroken main character determined to have her revenge. Regardless, it masterfully written and plotted, carrying all the possible and impossible intrigue of the immortal creatures and their shifty politics.
I love the author's expression and her writing style, which portrays beautifully the timelessness of the characters and their longevity, in the sense of the time that they have already existed. This expression gradually changes in order to reflect the current times, however, that timelessness aspect lingers and it works beautifully for the story.
Immortelle, the main character, is so incredibly complex and multilayered, partially due to her personality and partially due to her deliberate lack of certain memories. There is a number of very interesting and intriguing characters, which the author develops painfully slowly, in sync with Immortelle's perception of them.
The author's idea and the plot, as well as the background story are original, interesting, and gripping. The characters are amazing and the world is beautifully thought out and well built. This is one of those books that grab your attention and won't let you go until you reach the last page and then start following the author to see when the next book is planned to come out.
Maestra (Imortelle Book 2) is coming out in February 2019.
