Review: Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett


Dust Jacket Summary
Evie Starling has lived a relatively uneventful life hanging out with friends, gossiping about boys, and driving her 1966 Mustang. All of that changes when she moves to Gunnison, Colorado, to start college and meets two mysterious men.

For centuries, Alex Night and Emil Stone have yearned for Evie – but they each have their own reasons for wanting to be with her. When both men claim to be her soul mate and tell her about an unbelievable past, Evie learns that she’s not the person she thought she was. Soon, Evie finds herself in the middle of an age-old battle between the Amaranthine Society – the soul protectors and the Daevous Resistance – the soul destroyers.

With a past she doesn’t understand, and a future rife with danger, Evie has to decide who she can trust. But Alex and Emil aren’t the only ones who want Evie, and her soul is about to become the rope in an eternal tug-of-war.

My Review
Eternal Starling is a New Adult novel, an emerging category still part of young adult, but growing a strong following, enough so that one day it may break apart and stand on its own. New Adult books are those with college-age main characters. (My book, BLOOD MOON, actually falls into this category.)

Utah author Angela Corbett’s love triangle offers reader’s steamy romance and an interesting supernatural component of souls that never die and the people who fight for and against them. I enjoyed the setting of the book (Colorado), Evie’s toughness and the seriously cool cars, especially Evie’s Mustang – I’ve always wanted one of those. If you enjoy the angst of a good love triangle, you’ll like this quick, enjoyable read.

CONTENT NOTE: A few steamy kissing scenes and occasional use of mild foul language.

Angela will be here on Tuesday, Oct. 30th to talk about the book, the New Adult category and more.

Eternal Starling can be ordered from Indie Bound, Barnes & Noble and Amazon. Signed copies are available to order from The King’s English Bookshop.
