L ast night my whole world came tumbling down. Have you ever been going along, living your life, living in your reality, and then suddenly something happens that rips your world right in two? The cabbie, his huge, broad shoulders barely encased in a sweatshirt and plaid vest, turned around and gave Boz a look that would have made a normal person sit back and be very quiet. But Boz was by no means a normal person: He was prettier than most, louder than most, funner than most, and, God knew, dumber than most.

Nastasya is far from being a good person. It molds into the world we know instead of rewriting it entirely. In addition that that fascinating worldbuilding, the cast is very diverse with everyone coming from a different culture or racial-ethnic group for the most part.
The gay character being relegated to the background was a little annoying, but the racial-ethnic diversity is a step in the right direction. Hints of other plotty things like Incy searching for Nasty are barely delivered on. Her character as it is presented and written in the novel is awful.
Encouraging female rivalry over a man is bad enough, but these girls will live forever. They live forever. They will find another one. Acquaintances and mentors, yes, but no real friends. No two characters sound like when she speaks their lines. I never would have applied accents to any of the characters she did and it makes the book so much better. I definitely recommend reading Immortal Beloved in either format, but my preference is for the audiobook.
Oooh, sounds like you had a rough experience with this one too. I hated it for the first half and ended up loving it at the end. The experience looks rougher than it actually was.

She feels nothing and cares for no one. But when she witnesses her best friend, a Dark Immortal, torture a human, she realizes something's got to change. She seeks refuge at a rehab for wayward immortals, where she meets the gorgeous, undeniably sexy Reyn, who seems inexplicably linked to her past. Nastasya finally begins to deal with life, and even feels safe--until the night she learns that someone wants her dead. Cate Tiernan, author of the popular Sweep series, returns with an engaging story of a timeless struggle and inescapable romance, the first book in a stunning new fantasy trilogy.
