Overview

There’s always a price to pay for love. The second book of an all-new arc in the New York Times bestselling Kissed by an Angel series!

Ivy should be ecstatic that her formerly dead boyfriend Tristan is back on earth with her, but the life of a fallen angel is never easy. Tristan has been cast down in the body of a murderer, and the police are after him. Now, there’s only one way that he and Ivy can be together: They must clear him of the murder.

But when it becomes clear that there are darker forces at work—that Tristan and Ivy are still paying the price for Ivy’s miraculous survival of the car crash—the star-crossed lovers have more at stake than ever before. And one of them may not be alive much longer....

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Amy Wyckoff
Gregory, Ivy's evil stepbrother, has returned in Beth's body and has vowed to take vengeance against Ivy. Ivy can see the changes in Beth as Gregory takes over her body and causes Beth to act erratically and violently towards Ivy. Luckily, Ivy does not have to face Gregory alone because Tristan, operating in the body of Luke, is around to comfort Ivy. Luke, however, is still wanted for his ex-girlfriend, Corinne's, murder and has to stay hidden on the Cape. Ivy sneaks out at night to spend time with Luke because, despite what the police think, she loves him unconditionally. She sets out to solve the mystery of the night of Corinne's death, of which Luke has no memory. Along the way to solving the crime, Ivy and Tristan learn about Luke's former life and the person who killed Corinne and tried to kill Luke. The murderer is more than willing to finish off what he started. This sequel to Evercrossed (Simon Pulse, 2011/VOYA April 2011) is also told in short, suspense-filled chapters that will keep teens reading. The story seemed to take off in two directions, however, and the conclusion seemed rushed after so many pages of detailed descriptions and banter-like dialogue. Ivy's unwavering affection for Tristan/Luke at the expense of her other friendships becomes tiring, making her a less-than-lovable protagonist. At the conclusion, readers become aware that the series is not complete and Gregory will likely return in someone else's body. Reviewer: Amy Wyckoff
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Tristan is an angel hiding inside Luke's body (Luke is dead), Gregory is a demon controlling Beth's body. Tristan saved Ivy's life (even though he shouldn't have), Beth is Ivy's best friend, but Gregory hates Ivy; Tristan is Ivy's boyfriend but he has to keep out of sight because Luke has been accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and is wanted by the law (even though he is dead). Confused yet? In this sequel to Evercrossed (S & S, 2011), which hopefully makes sense of these jumbled, episodic events), Ivy, in a very Nancy Drew kind of way, hopes to clear Luke's name so that she and Tristan/Luke can be together. Ivy calls on angels to help her out of several scrapes, and, miraculously, they do. This clean supernatural romance mystery tries a bit too hard to be all things. There's very little character development; rather, the story is propelled forward by one quick scene after another. Libraries that have fans of the previous title may want to purchase this one. Others can pass.—Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada
Kirkus Reviews
This third entry in the Kissed by an Angel series apparently is not the last, as it solves one mystery and wins a battle that leaves readers with another cliffhanger. Ivy remains in forever-love with Tristan, who died in the first book but now inhabits Luke's body. Tristan became a fallen angel when he illegally saved Ivy from death with a kiss in the second installment, but he doesn't yet appear to be distressed by that development. The characters continue to rely on a real angel, rebellious and erratic Lacey, the most entertaining character in the book, who always comes through in a pinch. Meanwhile danger looms as Gregory, the evil spirit who was the original murderer, now possesses Beth, Ivy's best friend, with fateful intent. Amid that tangle of characters the author presents an equally large population of friends. In this volume, the main focus is on clearing Luke's name for murdering his girlfriend. Ivy and Tristan (as Luke) investigate. Chandler picks up the pace from the last installment with a bit more suspense, especially in the Gregory/Beth and Tristan/Luke combinations. Readers who began with the first installment will enjoy the continuing story, if they can disentangle the complexities of the plot and the natural and supernatural relationships. Others would do best by starting over from the beginning and paying close attention. Complicated. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)

    Read, but be prepared

    This was a great book. Im a huge fan of this series but i cannot believe that elizabeth chandler would end the series like this! I am extremely dissapointed with the crappy cliffhanger ending. Read this book but be prepared to be majorly dissapointed with the end. I am super mad and upset and she better write an epilogue at least. I will love tristan forever!

    This novel is an okay story. The cover art of the book is cool, but so far after reading a few chapters, 
    its hard to follow the story on what's going on with the characters. To me personally, this novel feels as
    though the context is in 3rd person. The comedy between the characters is hilarious.
    My rating for this book is 2 stars.

    i loved Everlasting by Elizabeth Chandler.  it was so good, i re

    i loved Everlasting by Elizabeth Chandler.  it was so good, i really enjoy reading about Tristan's and Ivy's strong love for one another.  Tristan will do anything for Ivy, to protect her, and I just love it.  their love is realistic, except for the angel-coming back thing,
    and i adore it.  this book ended in a big cliffhanger, but i'm excited for the next book in the series.  i just wish that Chandler would veer away from car accidents and bridges.  it's starting to get old.  also, i wish that the author reflect more on past books because i found myself
    struggling to remember part of the previous books.  also, i had no idea who some of the characters were.  one, Hank, popped up out of nowhere...  maybe i'm just a lazy reader, but i wish that Elizabeth Chandler gave more background to characters and explanations...  this does
    taint my view of the book, it's kind of annoying, but i still enjoyed it tremendously.  cheers to Chandler, and I can't wait to read the upcoming books in the Kissed by an Angel series.

    Ending?

    This has been my absolute favorite book series by far, but the ending is horrible. Its the kind of ending you only give a book uf tgere will be one following it. I really hope Elizabeth finishes this story. Until then, i have to give it a 4/5.

    Back off warriors!!!!!

    Omg i used to like the warriors series but all these stupid chats are SO ANNOYING!!! Nooks are supposed to be for reading, shopping and getting reveiws abour books...NOT for stupid warrior cats chatrooms! Anyone making "camps" on popular books obviously has nothing better to do! Go "camp" out in the woods instead or something, instead of ruining mook reviews!!!!

    Yeah please stop posting reviews on a perfectly good book.

    I love warriors but this is just annoying. Please go make ur ow rp website and do it there or something. Ur wasting space by roleplaying, which i think is illegal. Pretty sure its lik vandalism or something. Please just stop because i cant see any actual reviews on the book for about twenty posts down. I would really lik it if u stopped and did it at a book where no one really posts. It gets annoying becuase i might consider buying this book. These hings c b reported, u know. And if u keep i miht hav to go online and report u guys. Please dont make me becuase i really want want to. Thanks and i realky mean that i will report u. They will lock u out. And i know it seems like a small matter but actually these posts are up for the public to see. That means that people will b reading. That means they will see that u r rping. I used to rp but i quit. I dont really hav time and i realized that even if ur posting on a book no one reads, the person who discovers ur rp reviews will find it really annoying. A waste of space. So please, please stop. Hanks
