Immortal Beloved gives readers a glimpse into the world of the Immortals, beings who live among people and wield incredible magick. They are beings of darkness, feeding on the life-forces of others to build power but a small faction has turned to the light and learned to use the power within themselves. When Natasya hits rock bottom and feels herself being consumed by the Darkness, she must seek out the Immortals of Light and learn from them before it is too late. But she is being hunted by those who once claimed to be her friends, Dark Immortals who have figured out who she really is, that she comes from a once-powerful family that was destroyed hundreds of years ago, and that they must kill her if they want to steal the power she has inherited, the same power she is seeking to control.
