One word summary: Riveting
I felt like Immortal in Death ended a few concerns in my mind about Eve and her relationship to Roarke. I just cannot imagine what J. D. Robb continues to write about for another 20 or so books, but I felt like this was a break through for Eve in many ways. Not only does she clear up some questions about the past as her flashbacks all join together into clear memory of what took place when she was a child, but she also comes to some realizations about Roarke and her love and marriage to him. When she explained to Roarke that marriage was not a tradition or a contract, but that it was a promise, and she always kept her promises, I felt the finality of the situation in that statement. I hope I’m not disappointed in the future.
The mystery in this book also took me by surprise. I’m always trying to guess who did it as the investigation proceeds. This is another aspect of these books I love, you get the investigation in detail and it’s wonderful! The description, the thought process, it’s just another mark of what a great writer J. D. Robb (Nora Roberts) really is.
