Overview

Don’t miss the first book in Alyson Noël’s #1 New York Times bestselling The Immortals series. Enter an enchanting new world where true love never dies. . .

After a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He’s the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head—wielding a magic so intense, it’s as though he can peer straight into her soul.  As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she’s left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is—or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she’s falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Erin Wyatt
Ever, trying to drown out her new psychic powers by listening to loud music and covering herself with hooded sweatshirts and sunglasses, feels a sudden and overwhelming connection to Damen, the too-good-to-be true new guy at school. Unlike the other people she has encountered since the accident she somehow survived, she cannot see his aura or hear his thoughts. It is clear from the start that something is not quite normal with Damen. He does not seem to eat or sleep, conjures flowers, has the uncanny ability to seem to know what Ever is thinking, and has knowledge far beyond his seventeen years. Beautiful and cruel Drina seems determined to make to Ever suffer. Drina, Damen, and Ever share a long history as their lives have been entwined for hundreds of years. This first novel in the Immortals series will appeal to fans of the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer, and in fact, seems heavily inspired by it. Although here the beings are immortal, the partial explanation of what that entails is revealed in the closing chapters of the book, which poke a healthy amount of fun at the idea of vampires existing. Ever is ultimately a likeable character as she heals and learns to forgive herself for the accident that killed the rest of her family and let go of her dead younger sister, Riley, who has been a companion to Ever throughout the book. She also falls head over heels in love during the process. Reviewer: Erin Wyatt
School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up

After surviving a car accident that killed her entire family, 16-year-old Ever gains the ability to see auras and read thoughts. The overwhelming nature of her new powers and her guilt about the accident turn the once-popular teen into a loner at school. She makes friends with stereotypically gay Miles and mega-Goth Haven, and does everything she can to drown out the din of psychic energy around her. Her loner status comes under siege, as does her friendship with Haven, when a new boy, Damen, shows an interest in her. By accident, Ever learns that he has no aura, a fact that pushes her to uncover more about the mysterious newcomer. Some obvious clues, like the red liquid that Damen drinks instead of food, lead Ever to conclude that he is a vampire when in fact his true nature is more complex. Teens will identify with Ever, who not only has to deal with relationship and friend issues, but also with a dead sister who refuses to cross over and crippling psychic powers that make it hard to cope with everyday life. Though the familiar premise may hook many paranormal romance fans, none of the plot elements receive the thorough treatment they deserve, and the revelation in the end relies too heavily on backstory. Not a first pick in this ever-expanding genre.-Kim Ventrella, Ralph Ellison Library, Oklahoma City, OK

Kirkus Reviews
Shallow stock characters barely mar the breathless allure of this formulaic supernatural romance, the first in the Immortals series, though feeble explanations wreck the ending. Ever (her very name a clue to immortality) lives the life of the wealthy in Orange County. Sister Riley visits daily in ghost form, having died with their parents in an accident that Ever perplexingly survived. Deluged by everyone's thoughts and auras, Ever wears hoodies and iPod earbuds as shelter from psychic clamor, until mysterious hottie Damen silences it. This genre's core ingredients are all present: a new school, paranormal events the heroine doesn't understand and a deadly enemy fought by an irresistible, possibly dangerous boy. Ever's vernacular voice (description via negation: "it's not like I haven't had my hand touched before") and amorous fixation will gratify romance fans. However, Noel's metaphysics makes no sense. Manifestations are "simple quantum physics," Ever is murdered lifetime after lifetime but escapes this time due to the serial murderer's "lack of love" and the narrative never explains how Ever reincarnates with a new body and consciousness yet remains herself.

From the Publisher
"Narrator Katie Schorr has a wonderfully raspy, youthful voice, which she puts to good effect on the cast of teenaged characters...Her energy and spirit suit this lively supernatural title to a T." - AudioFile

"Evermore is addictive. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about how I could sneak away to read some more. I couldn't put it down. I dreamt about this book. And when I was finished, I couldn't get it out of my head. This book was simply breathtaking." —Teens Read Too

"Teen angst and the paranormal make a combustible mix as Noel utilizes typical themes and gives them a dangerous and eerie twist. Getting hooked on this new series, The Immortals, is guaranteed."—4 stars! Romantic Times Magazine

"Readers who enjoy the works of PC Cast and Stephenie Meyer will love this outstanding paranormal teen-lit thriller." –Midwest Book Review

“Get ready for a wild ride that is filled with twisting paths and mystery, love and fantasy. . . The writing style, story, and characters are a bit like Meyer and Marr's popular books, but written with a new twist and voice. And after reading the book, you too will probably want your own Damen, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.” —5/5 stars! The Book Queen

"I found myself unwilling to put the book down, even though I had to at some points, because I wanted to know what was going to happen…Ever was so real and her emotions were so believable that it was a little creepy. It's like Alyson Noël is actually a grieving, lovestruck teenager. She got Ever completely perfect. And by perfect, I mean delightfully flawed and deep.” —The Frenetic Reader

"Evermore is a wonderful book that I believe would be a lovely addition to any library . . .Definitely a book that fans of Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Marr should add to their collections. Definitely engaging and will catch your attention the minute you open to the first page!" - Mind of a Bibliophile

“Alyson Noel creates a great picture of each and every character in the book. I am a fan of the Twlight series and I recommend this book to those who like the series as well. It is a very quick read, with all the interesting twist and turns.” –Flamingnet Book Reviews

"I loved this book. It really keeps your attention though out the story, because the puzzle gets pieced together bit by bit, but you don't know exactly what happened until the end. The only thing that disappoints me is that the second book won't be published for a while. I would definitely recommend this to my friends." —Portsmouth Teen Book Review

"This is the first installment of The Immortals series. Ms. Noël pens a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them. Evermore has a familiar theme that attracts readers, but inside this book you’ll find that the author has added some unique details that sets it apart." —Darque Reviews

Evermore’s suspense, eerie mystery, and strange magic were interestingly entertaining…I found Ever to be a character I could really respect…Recommended.” –The Bookworm

“Beautiful main characters, tense budding romance, a dark secret, mysterious immortals—what more could you ask from this modern gothic romance?” –Justine Magazine

Evermore was a great way to lighten my reading load this winter and provided me with a creative, magical story that I really enjoyed. This is the first in a series for Noel and I think she may have a hit on her hands . . . Evermore has good and evil, likable characters, vivid descriptions and a good story.”- Planet Books

“I fell into it easily, and loved the world Noel created . . . The fact that Ever had psychic powers was truly interesting. They flowed neatly through the book and I felt Ever's pain . .trust me, this book was really good. I couldn't put it down. Alyson Noel created an amazing new world, and after this book I am so curious to see where it heads because honestly, I have no idea.” – Reading Keeps You Sane

“Ever is an easy character to like. I really felt for her because of all she lost and what she struggled with daily…Evermore was a really fast, engaging read with some great characters. It is the first in a series, so I'm eager to see if we will learn more about Ever, Damen and friends in the next one…it's sure to be a great read.”- Ninja reviews

“The writing here is clear, the story well-defined and narrator Ever has an engaging voice that teens should enjoy."- January Magazine

"Alyson Noël created a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them. Evermore has a familiar theme that attracts readers, but inside this book you’ll find that the author has added some unique details that sets it apart and will surprise you."- The Ravenous Reader

"The reader, Katie Schorr, does a great job narrating as the teen girl Ever. She becomes this character, and has a voice that is smooth and easy to listen to. The other characters are subtly nuanced as well, making this a very enjoyable listen." - 5 Minutes for Books on the audiobook

    Evermore

    After the accident that left her orphaned, 16 year old Ever has not only survived this traumatic ordeal but can now see people's auras, hear people's thoughts and keeps getting visited by the ghost of her younger sister Riley. Ever can't stand herself anymore. She can't stand to be around people. She can't stand going anywhere without her hoodie, sunglasses, and ipod. She can't stand her life anymore and it's all because of the accident where she lost her whole family, the accident which was all her fault.
    Now Ever has the strange psychic powers that allow her to see auras, read minds, and know people's life stories just by touching them. Most teens would love powers like that. Not Ever. Ever can't stand them and she only wants them to go away. And finally they do.
    When Ever meets Damen he quiets everything around her. She can't see his aura, read his thoughts, or know his life story. She can finally be herself. Things seem to be great with Damen until he starts acting very weird and strange people start showing up and going missing.
    Ever was a great character and so were her friends. Miles and Haven are hilarious. I think they really helped lighten the mood of the book when things started to get dark. It's always good to have some contrast in a book and I think they really provided it with a gay actor and a love starved goth chick. I also think that they were amazingly well-developed for background characters.

    Evermore was a book that i started reading and i couldn't put down. When I pick up a book that is like that i get involved in the story. I felt like I was right beside Ever and Damen. The love story that lasts forever. I really recommend this book to those who have never read this book.

    At first I wasn't sure what to expect. Like so many others I was stuck on the Twilight series. I had ventured out of them, but still I was stuck with vampires. Evermore, is amazing. It thrills you when you need to be thrilled, and warms you when you need to be warmed. I highly recommend this book and put in in my top tenn lists. I can't wait for Book 2. I f you are looking fo a romance that still has tons of NEW fiction in it go fore Evermore it was great!!!!!!!!!!!

    Never Again

    I began reading this book as a joke. My friend said it was bad, so I decided to read it to see what all the fuss was about. Something I will regret. The author tries to hard with "labels" and doesn't understand the difference between goth and vampire (watch South Park for God's sake).

    My first qualm with this book is the main character, Ever. She loses her entire family in a car crash, and from then on has awesome powers. Too many powers. She can see auras, spirits (which, I may add, she doesn't mention until chapter eight. Then, it's totally dropped. We have no elaboration on any of these spirits, and no further presentation of them), can see into the future, know what people are thinking, know the answers on a test, etc, etc. She subsequently uses these powers to stalk her boyfriend. Which was entirely insane and illegal. The only thing I liked about her was her short vodka stint, which was a very good plot device.

    Then there's Damen, stalkerish Edward boyfriend. However, I believe he's somewhat better than said vampire, for he doesn't emotionally abuse his girlfriend. Damen is immortal, and knows famous people from the past with no explanation. Just because you can live forever, doesn't mean you suddenly meet all these artists and authors. And just like Meyer did with Edward, Ever goes on and on about how beautiful Damen is. He was one very annoying character.

    Now I'll go to the overall writing. The author reuses so many words and phrases, it's like they're the only ones she knows. This story could have been better if it was not in first person, so the author wouldn't have to pretend to be a teenage girl. This book was just...annoying. There's no other way to describe this poorly written, paced, and plotted book. Never again will I doubt my friend who says a book is like a Twilight and Wicked Lovely crossover.

    Simply Great!!!

    I really enjoyed this book. It has a similar aspect as the book Fallen (which I adored). Ever is dealing with the loss of everything she has ever known or cared about, her mom, dad, sister, dog, home, friends, boyfriend etc. Everything changes after a car accident kills her whole family and she moves in with her aunt in California. Despite her huge loss Ever does gain a gift (not that she sees it that way). Ever is now psychic. Ever is forced to shut herself away from everyone to quiet the noise in her head until Damen comes along. He somehow is able to break through the noise and silence it. Ever is immediately drawn to him despite his mysterious nature. I was really glad that I didn't know what Damen was going into the book because I loved finding out when Ever did. I even found myself laughing out loud when Damen refutes her first guess. I finished this book in a little over a day and I plan to start Blue Moon tonight. This series is worth a read!

    Good Read!

    I enjoyed reading this! There were parts which kept me fliping through the pages and kept me guessing and wanting to know more about Damon's secrets.There were also parts that Ever, the main character, really annoyed me. Honestly, it's very similar to Twilight so if you loved Twilight then you'll enjoy Evermore as well.

    It wasn't suprising

    I say evermore was an ok book. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. It stayed the same basically the whole book. Damien would take Ever somewhere extravagant and then the next day Damien would be all over some other girl. Ever would get upset and think she hates Damien and then val the story repeats at some points the book did suprise me. Damien can't be in a room with Ever for more them 10 minutes without taking her pants off!

    This book was not good at all. It seemed like an awful rendition of Twilight. Not only that, but the book did not flow well. It was not well written. I believe that the series and the story's concept had the potential to be great, but fell short. Very short. I would not recommend this to anyone.

    Boring

    I have to say this is the stupidest series I can admit to reading. The main character NEVER figures anything out on her own. She knows nothing about what is going on until the end of the books where the "Bad Guy" takes two pages explaining to her and us what the heck was going on the entire time. How stupid am I? I agree with other reviews in the fact that Ever's boyfriend (whom I cannot ever remember) has no character whatsoever. He has no likes or dislikes, nothing he is into, nothing he cares about and you never even understand why he is going to school in the first place. Apparently just because Ever is so fascinating. BORING.

    evermore....

    ever since her mom dad sister and dog, buttercup died in a car crash that she somehow survuved, Ever has been able to read minds and see auras. to be honest she hates and just wishes that she could go back to her old life before the stupid crash that ruined evrything. her life was pretty much much perfect before her family died and she was forced to move too california and move in with her aunt, sabine. she was popular she was a cheerleader and she had a great boyfriend. now at her new high school everyone basically thinks shes a freak. well everyone except her two best friends, Miles ans Haven. She has one other best friend who she also sees almost every sinle day. her dead sister, riley. for some reason she is still able to see her and talk to her and riley is pretty much the only thing keeping ever from going crazy. she finally has evrything figured out and then one day a new guy shows up at school, Damen, who changes everything. ever tries to ignore him as much as she can but the moment she sees him (and sees that he has no aura at all and that she cant read his mind like evryone else) she cant stop thinking about him. <BR/><BR/>this is a very suprising book. i would go on in the summary but i could go on forever and there are just to many things to say and i wouldnt want to give anything away...<BR/>this book is good. not horrible but not amazing. just good.<BR/>i couldn't help comparing it to twilight though. it sounds like the author is trying to write some big bestseller like stephenie meyer but at some parts its just annoying because she pretty much has the exact same story going on but its completely different at the same time. kinda like she just rewrote the story and changed some parts in it to try to make it sound ike her own. <BR/><BR/>yes, i do think i would reccomend this to other people. it is a very good book and it makes you want to keep reading and reading. i think i read it in about two days. it is good but its just not on the top of my list.

    Fans, adults and teens, will relish the spellbinding EVERMORE.

    could have any boyfriend she wanted. Her wonderful life ended when she was sixteen with a car accident that killed all her loved ones; her parents, her younger sister Riley, and her dog all dead. Ever also almost past away as her spirit left her body, but she was revived; her Aunt Sabine took her niece into her California home.<BR/><BR/>Once again she has everything a teen can desire except her beloved family, but Ever is also a psychic who can read minds, see auras, and holds pillow chats with Riley. She wears a hood to separate her from others as she tries to hide from the world. Her two friends are rejects who fit in with her feelings of being one too. Then Damen Auguste comes into her life and brings peace with a touch as he can block her psychic skills. He makes it very clear to her that he wants a relationship between them, but she fears his lack of an aura. Once the teen learns the truth about the lad pursuing her, Ever has to make a choice that fits her name.<BR/><BR/>Readers who enjoy the works of P.C. Cast and Stephanie Meyers will love this outstanding paranormal teen-lit thriller. Ever feels survival guilt and remorse for the accident as she blames herself; her talks with Riley are heartbreaking as her sister pleads with her to move on and live life to the fullest. Ever struggles with understanding what Damen and his friend are; while readers will comprehend the aura-less pair¿s yin-yang relationship. Fans, adults and teens, will relish the spellbinding EVERMORE.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    Evermore

    The story wasn't bad, I have to admit. A lot like twilight, but different enough. The writing got on my nerves. It was supposed to be poetic, I guess, but there were run-ons where there shouldn't have been and some sentences were cut in half for no reason. Reading it kind of felt like taking a bath in dirty dishwater. However, it was appealing enough to make me want to read the next book. I suggest you read it and decide for yourself.

    Go find another book to read

    Meet Ever, your stereotypical Emo high school girl who has everything in the world and stills finds time to whine about it. Everything sucks because she doesn't understand why her family passed away and she was left alive, so, in response to this phenominal event, she takes it out on her appearance and social life -- choosing to only be friends with a goth girl who is severely jealous of Ever ALL THE TIME, and a gay who is always stuck in the middle of the two girls. Then she meets Damen, the hottest guy in school who her best friend just HAS to have, but as luck would have it has fallen in love with Ever despite her weird emo tendencies and lack of social communication. Yea, this is a book that has "Real" written all over it.
    Ever is a character that will drive you crazy because she is so whiney and angsty, and Damen is honestly a huge jerk that flirts with every girl alive and then doesn't understand why Ever keeps her distance from him. The ending of this book wasn't too bad because you understand why Damen is the way he is and all that jazz, but it takes SOOOO long to get there that you have to force yourself through all the teenage angst and insignificant plot developments just to get to that point.
    Bottom line, go find another book to read because you'll have to force yourself to pick up this one.

    Twilight??

    To tell you the truth my expectations to this book was very high so it was a little dissapointing when I read it. Many people said it was like Twilight and since Im a big fan of Twilight I bought it. This book is nothing like Twilight. Sure it has the same romance plot but usually romance books do. This book was somewhat enjoyable but in my opinion cannot be compared to Twilight. Plus the main character isn't even a vampire he's an "immortal." But anyways im still considering buying the second part to see what happens. Maybe there will be more excitement.

    ahhmazinggggg!

    i absolutely loved this book. i couldnt put it down from the time i started it and after i finished i immediately reread it. Blue Moon was just as good. i finished it the day i got it. These books are similar to Twilight but are different in so many ways. i cannot wait to read shadowland. i wood recommend this book to anyone who has good taste in books. =)
