Shadowland - Alyson Noel

4/5 Stars

Shadowland is the third of six books in the Immortal Series by Alyson Noel

Ever and Damen have travelled through countless past lives—and fought off the world’s darkest enemies—so they could be together forever. But just when their long-awaited destiny is finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon Damen…one that could destroy everything. Now a single touch of their hands or a soft brush of their lips could mean sudden death—plunging Damen into the Shadowland. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick—and gets help from an unexpected source…a surfer named Jude.

Although she and Jude have only just met, he feels startlingly familiar. Despite her fierce loyalty to Damen, Ever is drawn to Jude, a green-eyed golden boy with magical talents and a mysterious past. She’s always believed Damen to be her soulmate and one true love—and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before…

I have to say that I honestly liked the book but not as much as the first two but I think this was because I wanted to know if they got what they needed but they didn’t and I already knew they didn't.

Until chapter 25ish it took me a while to read. I didn’t want to rush it knowing I had to wait awhile for Dark Flame (Book 4).

After chapter 25 it took me a day to read the rest and I’m into the book that much I found myself crying I couldn’t believe what Alyson had done at the end and I really wanted to throw the book at her for it. Haha.

I am really Looking forward to reading Dark Flame (Book 4) and can't wait for it to be released in the UK.

Blue Moon - Alyson Noel

5/5 Stars

Blue Moon is the second of six books in the Immortal Series by Alyson Noel

Things have changed for Ever since she met her beloved Damen - not least because she's got a whole new set of powers, courtesy of her new Immortal status. Just as she's getting stronger, though, Damen seems to be weakening. Panicked at the thought of losing him, Ever finds a path to the in-between world known as Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen's tortured past. But in searching for a cure for him, Ever accidentally discovers a way to twist time so she can save her family from the accident that killed them. It's all she's ever wanted - but so is Damen. And Ever must choose between them...

Blue Moon starts off where it left us with Damen and Ever happier than ever.

Damen help’s Ever learn more about her new abilities and everything’s good as they plan to seal the deal, and live happily ever after.

Except Damen’s getting sicker and sicker and on that special day everything goes wrong: Damen ditches her, abandons their plans of romance and love.

The next day Damen’s done a complete 180 and ignores Ever. What gives? –I’ll let you read it yourself to find out-. But in order to ‘save’ Damen, Ever has to travel to Summerland where she meets new people and learns new things. Thing’s that can change Ever and Damen’s lives forever. Even her family’s lives.

Ever, is strong, mature and independent and despite her undying love for Damen she makes some tough decisions.

Now, I must say Alyson Noel surprised me with a twist which left me wanting the third book, but with living in the UK meant I had to wait. I needed to know what happened next and I didn’t want to wait.

Evermore - Alyson Noel

5/5 Stars

Evermore is the first of six books in the Immortal Series by Alyson Noel

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste . . .

Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

Ever Bloom is a teenage girl who is living with her aunt in California because her family have all died in a car accident.

Ever hides herself under baggy jeans and hooded sweatshirts so she doesn’t attract any attention.

Ever is see’s the ghost of her dead little sister Riley everywhere. They even have conversations. Ever finds comfort in it, because it almost feels like Riley is still alive.

Something happened to Ever in the accident. She’s received power she can see the dead, see peoples auras she can see people’s life story from just one touch and she can read everyone’s minds. But Ever knows it’s not right to push your way through people’s privacy like that so she does very little with her gift.

When a new guy starts the school things start to change for Ever, she can’t see inside his mind at all, which is very strange indeed. But it’s more than that. Something about Damen is off. Ever notices this straight away but can’t seem to figure out what it is. The more time she spends with him, the more her imagination gets carried away and suddenly she finds herself contemplating all kinds of crazy things.

Damen is not at all what he seem, or at least what the author wants you to think he is. He’s very old, he drinks a red liquid from a glass at dinner, he has lots of money, he disappears and he has books signed by authors who died years ago. – Is this making you think he’s a vampire?

Well sorry to disappoint you but Damon’s no vampire. He’s just a guy who has lived a really long time. Apart from the whole mind reading stuff he is fairly limited to what he does.

He’s not running from anyone and he’s absolutely not a threat to Ever in any way. – Wondering where the conflicted is? – Well there’s no forbidden love so its not like Romeo and Juliet not even close.

Evermore is the best book I have ever read. I know some people will disagree with me but I loved it and I really couldn’t put it down and I can’t wait to read Blue Moon.
