If you had the chance to start your life over, would you take it? If you were told you would live for eternity, would you embrace it? If a stranger told you he was your soul mate, would you believe it?

 Raina Richmond has played it safe her entire life. She has never broken the rules. That is, until Brent Alexander walked straight into her life, causing havoc. Turning her world upside down.

 Brent is the new kid in town. He is every girl’s fantasy: adorable, charming, chiseled, and the typical boy Raina usually steers clear of. But there is just something about him she can’t seem to resist. Safe is no longer an option for her. For him, she breaks all the rules.

 What she doesn’t realize is that he holds the key to her past, present, and future. Once he reveals the reasons behind their irrevocable connection, she will unlock the answers to all of her questions, and her life as she knows it will never be the same again.


I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Eternal Mixture is a young adult novel with the common theme of a teenage girl who thinks she’s normal but suddenly finds out that she’s not.

The two main characters were frustrating throughout the first half of the book. Raina was quick to anger and second guessing herself and others at every turn. Brent acted like a typical teenager when Raina hurt his feelings, but he wasn’t a typical teenager and his reaction was disappointing and didn’t seem to fit with the rest of his personality. Both characters were much more likable in the second half of the book.

The story kept my interest throughout although there were a lot of grammatical errors. Shevaun DeLucia’s explanation of how immortals came to be was interesting and easy to understand, which was refreshing. This book is mostly about the undying love of Brent and Raina. Although it was predictable it was still an enjoyable read. There was even once when I laughed out loud (thankfully, I was at home).
