Wow this was definitely a surprising book which was better than I thought. The ideas od immortals was so cliche and also a difficult subject to write on. Why would it be difficult? Well, depending on the past centuries, the scenes in the historical time must be accurately portrayed and a lot of research is required. Simply said, immortals can't be plopped into a past timeline and be expected to act like modern society. The scenes, people, and attire along with customs must be anachronistically correct. Not just that, Tiernan has somehow managed to make this book light-hearted despite the gruesome flashbacks and feature of crazy people. Bravo and hopefully, Darkness Falls will be just as entertaining!
