Ever is helping her friend Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and carelessly putting them all at risk, their friendship becomes more and more strained. At the same time, Ever delves deeper into magick to get control over her enemy Roman and free Damen from his power. But when the spell she casts on Roman backfires, she's bound to her deadliest enemy. Frantic to reverse the spell the moment the moon enters a new phase, she finds her efforts are fruitless-there's a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, one that propels her toward Roman. Desperate to break free of the curse before Damen discovers what she's done, she turns to Jude and delves deeper into dark magick, ultimately risking everything she knows and loves- including her beloved Damen.

Decent start that has dragged out to a boring and sad point...

I picked up a couple of books from a stores 50% off rack. Evermore was one of the them..I liked it. It was ok for what it was, I didn't expect very much. I liked it well enough to go buy the second and was still happy and looking forward to number 3...major let down. Ma...
I picked up a couple of books from a stores 50% off rack. Evermore was one of the them..I liked it. It was ok for what it was, I didn't expect very much. I liked it well enough to go buy the second and was still happy and looking forward to number 3...major let down. Made me question if I want to bother with 4 and get more annoyed then I already am with this series. There was a great idea here and a sweet romance that has taken the wrong turn and left the reader wanting some thing more, some thing better. Now that I see this whole garbage with Roman, who I don't like at all, and Haven being made immortal and acting stupid? I think this is where I get step off the teenager platform and hop the train to adult.

There was also another book I picked up at the same time and while it won't knock your socks off, I found it a much better read, a fun time and kept me wanting more. I still want more...
The Vampire Academy Series...

    Dark Flame by Alyson Noel Review

    I've been having a love/hate relationship with the Immortals series for a while now. The first installment, Evermore has by far been my favorite and is what has kept me reading the series. With that being said, this was not a opinion changer for me, not a favorite to be sure.

    Readers will see the characters and plot going in more of the same direction in Dark Flame. Ever is still trying to find the antidote and in order to do that she needs help. Her relationships with the other characters drove me crazy this time around. I'm not quite sure at times why they put up with her antics and let her get away with everything without any risk of her jeopardizing the relationships she has with the others. She's cruel to Jude, insensitive to Damen and sympathetic (eventually) to Roman...keep in mind these are just my opinions. I understand that Roman's had a rough life, but he's still not a great guy.

    And then we've got Haven, Ever's best friend and recently turned immortal. She's got her new immortality and she's abusing every minute of it. While Damen and Ever warn her of the consequences of such actions, we've got Roman egging her on. Like I said...not a great guy. I don't know, I was just frustrated throughout with all the characters to be honest. I couldn't believe the thoughtless decisions Ever made time and time again and it annoyed me to no end. I don't understand how Damen can always take everything in stride and never get truly angry with Ever, the girl needs a stern talking to. I get that they're soul mates, but everybody fights once and a while...don't they? Apparently not Damen and Ever. Roman's personality is irksome but I guess that's what you're looking for in a good villain and Jude just complicates an already overly complicated situation. Damen and Ever already have enough obstacles to overcome, did we really need a love triangle in there as well?

    I think this might be the end of the road for me and the Immortals series. I love Noel's writing and plan to read her new and soon to-be released series, with the first book Radiance, but for now the Immortals and I are going to part ways.

    Disappointing

    The more I read of this series, the less I like Ever. The story itself is good, if you can get past how moronic the main character is. Her stupid decisions and thought processes make reading the book less enjoyable than it could have been if she weren't so... dumb. Are 16/17 y/o's really this retarded now?

    Too drawn out

    I thought book 1 2 3 were pretty good, by book 4 nothing has really changed. Completly lost interest, will not waste any more time or money on it.

    Don't bother.

    I liked the first book in the Immortals and the second one was okay. But this one was so slow. By the end it got a little better but I don't think I'll be reading the next one in this series.

    Worst book in the series

    I didn't like it that much so it took me forever to finish it. It isn't very good, but i forced myself to finish it. It took forever to get to the end and most of the book was totally useless.
