Tess Jennings, who has been gifted with the ability to see ghosts, struggles to help the Grand Master of the Animus, Alexander, cross over. She might even have discovered who murdered him, but she has no way to prove it. Adding to her pile of failures, Tess must accept a harsh reality—she has officially run out of time. The closer she gets to an answer to save her ghost lover, Kipp McGowen, the more she’s realizing she’s been searching for an answer she didn’t want to find. Tess will have to make difficult choices, and her decisions will lead to consequences she cannot predict. Will Kipp finally take a living breath again, or will Tess take her last and join him in the Netherworld forever?
Review: After the last book in this series, I couldn't wait to get my grubby little hands on the next one. Especially after the cliff hanger ending, Ms Kennedy left us with. Of course Eternally Devoted, picks up with the exact spot, Mystically Bound stopped. Tess, Kipp and the gang are hot on the trail of a murder. There is a little bit of rehashing, but not enough to make this a stand alone, so if you haven't read one through three you'll want to do that first.
Tess is bound and determined to save Kipp. To do so she needs to find a magic book called the Lux which they find surprisingly easily. After every thing they went through the resolution of the murders felt a little like a cop out. Maybe I just expected more from Ms Kennedy given the first two books in the series. Then again maybe like the rest of us, who have been dedicatiedly following Tess and Kipp, she just wanted that part out of the way so we could deal with thr relationship aspect.
Yes, I got a bit choked up at the very end, if you love Tess and Kipp you are going to want to break out the tissues. That's all I'm going to say on the subject. Dispite my dissapointment with the mystery aspect, I can say I didn't see the resolution coming, but all in all the ending made up for it.
