Description (from Rural France, June 1925 - The witness to the Moreau massacre, Eternal, is still incarcerated in an asylum, trapped by her amnesia. Only her true love, Edourad, can help rediscover her identity. But the startling truth attracts the attention of The Count, the secret leader of a vampire cult. The Count needs Eternal's blood to achieve his destiny at the Eternal Hour and he has the forces of evil to help him.

With little time remaining, Edouard must unravel Eternal's vampiric past, unmask The Count, and plot their escape. But at every step, dangers beyond his understanding lurk in the shadows, and Eternal is vulnerable to attack the moment he leaves her.

With the Eternal Hour at hand and the forces of darkness converging, Edouard and Eternal must fight to rid the world of this evil. If they lose, The Count will reign supreme and unleash the dogs of war and chaos upon the world. Let the final battle begin.

My Review: I love almost all books about vampires and Luna Aeturnus is no exception. From the beginning I was curious about Eternal and why she is the asylum. I loved how this novel seemed to keep the reader guessing and we are taken on a journey. We learn things about Eternal and the asylum along with Edouard and I think this makes it better because the surprise and mystery is not revealed to the reader first and then we see the character's reaction, we have our own reaction. Luna Aeturnus was not predictable at all. 

Edouard shuddered with delight at Eternal’s vibrant caress. He grasped her hand as the music filled him with such dark desires. With a shudder of almost sexual completion, he gripped her hand tighter. His heart hammered painfully as he released his seed. He had to do this or go mad with her passion boiling his blood.

His passion spent, he began to focus on the task at hand – her treatment. “I am going to put you under hypnosis.” A look of terror and unease flitted across her face. “Please tell me what frightens you.” He received an overwhelming feeling of vulnerability.

She almost snarled as she replied, “We have no time for silly games, Edouard.”

He knew what she meant and accepted it as the truth. She instilled in him the need to be fully aware of the Eternal Hour, of the trials to come. “I will not let any harm come to you, do you understand?” He smiled. “It will be for only the briefest of moments.”
She shook her head no. “He is so close now ... he is in the village.”

He understood her truth. “He can do nothing to you in here ... do you believe I am your true love?”
“Why do you need to ask, Edouard?”
“Do this for me, so that I may understand your past. You do want that, yes?”
Though hesitant, she nodded for him to continue with the treatment.

He asked her in his gently lyrical voice, “Keep your eyes on my hand and imagine you are 
floating on a warm sea.” He waved his hand gently up and down in front of her face like the rise and fall of waves. Rise and fall. Rise and fall. Rise and ....
She realised just how vulnerable she would be in this altered state. She panicked and shook her head frantically. “Please stop. I will no longer exist if I surrender my power.” 

Overall Opinion: My favorite thing about this novel was the dark style and how I was questioning everything in the novel. I think Luna Aeturnus does an excellent job in keeping readers interested because you want to know how the story resolves. I give Luna Aeturnus 4 stakes. I would recommend this book to fans of vampires and mysteries.
