I just adore the world Cynthia Smith has created. This book was just as good as the first but in different ways. While not as funny as Tantalize tended to be Eternal's plot had its own humor. You get a closer look at the hierarchy vampires (or the preferred term "Eternals") have created and it is completley plausible! To me the characters were not as memorible as the story line itself and while that is not a bad thing it is something that could be improved on. This is a wonderful quick read and a must read to vampire lovers!
