Blurb/Summary:

Dreading the one night per tide he’s forced to travel between the realms, Draigen Eric Locke has only one desire on Samhain – to retrieve the fae transporting daemon relics through the realms and escort her to the Dark Court to face the sidhe king. When he mistakenly recovers the wrong fae, the dragon under his skin responds in a way he never could have predicted, and he discovers he’s found the woman destined to him by the Fates – his Chosen.

Runa Charon is an anomaly among her kind, the mortal offspring of a human and a fae. Unlike other sidhe, she longs to experience pleasure instead of pain, love instead of lust. Immortally strong but mortally fragile, she’s been sheltered all of her life. When the opportunity to meet a Draigen from the Otherworld arises, she can’t resist the temptation and travels to meet the man who will change her destiny.

Unlike other netherworld creatures, Draigen mate for life, choosing to follow the path of their beloved mate in this reality or the next. Knowing a future can only span one lifetime, will they settle for less than an eternity? Or will they be grateful for the gift of each day?

Review:

Eternity and A Day is an incredible and captivating story! It sucks you in at the beginning and keeps your attention all the way through. This was super hard to put down, because the plot line thickens and draws you further and further into Aline Hunter’s world she has created.

Aline Hunter does a phenomenal job with her character development and descriptions. The reader feels like they are right there in the middle of all the action. I felt like I was reading about loved ones and friends not just thought up characters for a book.

I also learned something new reading this story, there is an entire Dragon Language that has been developed. Part of that language was incorporated into this story and made it feel even more life-like.

This is one story you are not going to want to miss reading. Eternity and A Day had me in tears at one point and laughing out loud several times. There are so many great characters in this story besides Runa and Eric. Their story takes main stage, but there are so many sub-plots going on that relate to them.

The ending of the book left it open to continue with one or more of the sub-plots. I really hope so, because I want to play in this world some more!

Stacey,

Thank you for the wonderful and articulate review. I'm so glad you enjoyed Eternity and a Day, as well as the dragon language. Hopefully I'll have the next story written by the end of the year. ;-)
