Evie Starling has lived a relatively uneventful life hanging out with friends, gossiping about boys, and driving her 1966 Mustang. All of that changes when she moves to Gunnison, Colorado, to start college and meets two mysterious men. For centuries, Alex Night and Emil Stone have yearned for Evie but they each have their own reasons for wanting to be with her. When both men claim to be her soul mate and tell her about an unbelievable past, Evie learns that she’s not the person she thought she was. Soon, Evie finds herself in the middle of an age-old battle between the Amaranthine Society the soul protectors, and the Daevos Resistance the soul destroyers. With a past she doesn’t understand, and a future rife with danger, Evie has to decide who she can trust. But Alex and Emil aren’t the only ones who want Evie, and her soul is about to become the rope in an eternal tug of war.
Soulmates, a beautiful concept that maybe is not so easy to define; Eternal Starling captures this beautiful concept exploring the meaning of choices and destiny. Eternal Starling narrates the story of Evie, a girl who lives a normal life until two handsome guys walk into her life and she learns the truth of herself and two secret societies; The Amaranthine and The Daevos Resistance. WOW!!! This book was a page turner for me and the girl (AKA ME) who’s not fond of love triangles was just converted. Corbett stands out as a writer creating a strong female character and stating how choice VS destiny plays a part in the character’s journey. As a reader I’m very into love stories and what I loved about this one is that I could see and feel Evie’s confusion between her choice (Emil) and her destiny (Alex). Those two guys stood out as characters for very different reasons, but it’s clear their love for Evie is real. Also the societies’ mythologies that take part of the story is brilliant and it’s beautiful to have a story that’s based on love. It’s wonderful how Corbett takes the reader on a journey where she shows you the beautiful thing about pre-destined love, but also she shows you the allure of choosing who you want to love. At the end Eternal Starling left me with that; the beauty of this truth. Love can be predestined and it’s beautiful, eternal and profound but the choice of love could be equally the same. Eternal Starling, the story of a girl who will defeat a powerful society to have the chance to be HERSELF and her journey to find peace between her heart and soul.
Team Alex!!! Sorry I need to say it. I will give an E-Book of Eternal Starling and Swag Material for one winner that will be choose between the people who comment in the review.
