The end . . . or a new beginning?
As Ellie comes to grips with her destiny as the Elect One, her relationship with Michael grows tense. When she meets a mys­terious boy named Rafe, things get even more complicated.
Yet the time has come for the Elect One to stand against the group of evil fallen angels who are bent on destroying the world. In order to face the immeasurable malevolence heading her way, Ellie tries to put her personal life aside. But she soon learns that whoever holds her heart also holds the key to mankind’s salvation—or destruction. As the end days approach, Ellie is faced with an epic decision. Who does her heart really belong to? And is her love strong enough to save the world?
ETERNITY is book 2 of the Fallen Angel series so make sure you snag and read FALLEN ANGEL before you pick this up or you might be a little lost. One of thing that really annoyed me about the beginning of the book is that the first 2 chapters of ETERNITY was just a really drawn out version of the last chapter of FALLEN ANGEL and i felt it was really boring the second time around. Ellie learned and dealt with a lot of things in book 1 and continues to deal with the same things in book 2 to try to stop the evil fallen angels from destroying the world. I honestly cant begin to think of the feelings I have towards Michael. He seems to be way to easily influenced and used and it honestly just got to be to much to have to watch Ellie go through the same stuff as FALLEN ANGEL. I don't thing there will be another book as the ending seemed to wrap everything up but if by chance there is I hope he will have a better knightly role then in the past.  I really did enjoy watching Ellie grow into her role as the Elect One. It wasn't super easy for her which made the story better and she had some help from a great new character that I enjoyed learning about. I read both books back to back and I enjoyed FALLEN ANGEL a little more then ETERNITY. I honestly don't think I would read another book if it came out in the series as it just didn't seem to grab me like I wanted it too but I think any fan of YA angel mythology books might enjoy the series.

I gave it 3/5 stars
