'Eternal Hope' by Frankie Rose Blog Tour: Review

Eternal Hope

Hope Series Book #2 

By Frankie Rose

He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me

When your friends go missing and you don’t know if they’re dead or alive; when you tie your soul to the one you love; when you kill to protect and your family suffers, there’s only one thing you can do:

Move to Montana.

Farley Hope is special. She was prophesied to kill the forebears of her bloodline- a race of cold-blooded Reavers, men who steal the souls of the living to gain power. The Quorum had counted on Farley ending her own life in the process, but when Kayden came to her aid and helped save both her and Daniel, he undid their plans. Now the Quorum are displeased, not only with Kayden, but with Farley and Daniel too. Though her father is now dead, Farley’s troubles with the Reavers are far from over. An ancient Immortal, trapped for a thousand years, wants Farley for himself, and he will stop at nothing to claim her.

With secrets that lead to anger and pain, that turn friendship to dust, the group must overcome the problems within their own circle before they have a hope of fighting off the powers that threaten their lives.

Eternal Hope is the second book in the Hope Series by Frankie Rose. I have been meaning to get to this series for a while now, due to Mel's constant recommendations of it, but haven't had the time. So when the opportunity to review it for this blog tour came up, I was ecstatic. I put some excellent books aside to get to this and I am very happy I did.

Sovereign and Eternal Hope focus on Farley and Daniel (*drools*), mostly. The book is a supernatural YA, yes, but I will tell you- No vampires. Thank you, Miss Rose. Because I, for one, cannot handle another vampire novel. *shakes head*

I'm getting off base aren't I? Okay. 

I've said it before and I'll say it again for those who don't know-- I really, really don't like sequels. Especially when I love a first book, like I did in this series. Why? Because the sequel never, ever, ever lives up to the first novel. THAT is not the case here. While I loved Sovereign Hope, I love Eternal Hope even more (I think... Can they be tied? They are the same series, after all). Both books have so many twists and turns and suspense and action and drama and I've actually been sitting up all night reading it so I could see where it was headed. And now I really want book 3! *sits, tapping foot impatiently*

If you haven't read this series yet, my God, do it NOW. It is EXCELLENT!!

My Rating:

As a child, I was always accused of being bookish because I wore glasses- big, horrible, ugly ones with too-thick lenses. Those kids, the super smart ones who always know which tender insecurities to poke at in order to provoke

life-long complexes, used to accuse me of reading too many books and that my eyes were going to rot out of my head (their words, not mine!)

The truth of the matter was a little more embarrassing: I used to sit too close to the T.V. That was the reason why I had to wear glasses, but kids don’t really care about small, insignificant details like the truth, and so I was labelled a nerd. The label kinda stuck, and after some sage advice from my awesome nana (nana, you rock!) I decided that if I was going to be abused for my supposed literary obsession, I might as well develop one.

I guess that’s how I got into books and reading at an early age. Since then, I’ve been ripping through books like they’re going out of fashion, which, thankfully, they’re not. Good thing, too, because I’m a writer now, and books are my business!

Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me on my journey- look for your names in the acknowledgements! And a big thank you to you, the reader. I hope you’ve fallen in love with Farley and Daniel just like I have, and that you’ll join them in the next book, Eternal Hope!
