Series Review: Evermore, Blue Moon, and Shadowland by Alyson Noël
I was very hesitant to start this series, especially after reading its reviews on Good Reads. I'm glad I gave this series a try. It's no Mortal Instruments or anything like that, but I found I am liking it well enough. Yes, it is reminiscent of Twilight and even Lauren Kate's "Fallen" series. You have your typical gorgeous guy, and your girl who thinks she's nothing special and tries to hide herself away.
I liked the main character, Ever, but she could get annoying with her insecurity and jealousy. Damen, was also likeable in this book, but I could understand Ever's frustration with his disappearing acts and how he runs hot and cold.
I didn't particulary care for Ever's best friend Haven. She was a bit of a whiney underdeveloped character, if you ask me.
This is Noël's second book in the series and I have to say it broke my heart a little.
Ok, more than a little. Things ended on a good note with Damen and Ever in "Evermore", but things get messy pretty quick into "Blue Moon".
We are introduced to Roman, the new kid at school. Ever is creeped out by him, but everyone else seems like him. Ever's suspicions turn out to be right- he is NO bueno! Soon- Ever is faced with losing everyone that ever mattered to her, including Damon. Stubborn that she is, she's not giving up without a fight.
Though, damn this girl makes some rash decisions. The end leaves us with a "Are you freaking kidding me?!" moment... Noël knows how to draw out some angst!
Book 3 of Noël's 'Immortals' saga. I have to say, this book was a little slower for me than the other two. I just didn't feel as if it had as much action.
We are introduced to yet another character who plays a big deal in Ever's life, by the name of Jude- a hot surfer guy, who works at the magic store Ever goes to for information. Jude plays a big role in this book and also ties in to her past lives.
If it's not one thing wedging between Ever and Damen, it's certainly another! I suppose these crazy kids won't get their HEA until Book 6.... sigh....
