I found the finale of this book to be worth while despite the book's "emo" tendencies. The characters could have survived a few more devastating setbacks on the way, and the two friends seemed somewhat flat, but I did really empathize the main character. And I loved how Shields chose to end the book.

Question : is the second book?
because I loved the first and want the second!

The ending is really sad, I liked how it was different from many other books, but still. I think the book would have been better if Sebastian had been evil for a longer period of time. I also liked how each chapter transitioned from Agnes diary to Evie's life with the same sort of topics or word choices.

not as good as the first book but never the less, it's amazing. the ending is kind of depressing though.

I thought this was a much better book than the first. I far preferred the two perspectives given through Evie's narration and Sebastian's papers than the Evie narration/journal combination in the first book. The female protagonist is a strong character, and she functions on her own without a guy always protecting her, which is a nice difference from some noteable paranormal romances out there. The paranormal take is unusual, and although you can guess the ending from the very beginning, it still ends well.

Just finished reading Betrayal. I loved reading about the girls and how their friendship grew through the powers of the Mystic Way and made them stronger. Evie was a bit obsessive about helping Sebastian. At times i wanted to shake her and tell her to forget him that he was truely using her, but as you read you will find out the truth. I loved the ending, so many surprises, and twists. I actually thought this was the end of the series. Gillian Shields could have ended it here it really was a good ending. But i just found out that Eternal # 3 in the series is coming out August 1, 2011. So yet another adventure to look forward to from the girls and maybe even some more on Evie and Josh. I really like Josh. Just go for it Evie!!!

An amazing book!!!!! The ending is fantastic u will never believe the ending. I wonder if she will continue the series because it would be nice to read more about Evie and her friends with more adventures. :)
