Enter the realm of the Immortals—the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Alyson Noël that's been acclaimed as breathtaking, mesmerizing, flawless and extraordinary.

Ever and Damen have traveled 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.

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.

Alyson Noel has officially lost me as a reader with her release of the latest story in the Immortals series. Noel has successfully destroyed any likable qualities of her main character, Ever. Where Ever was once a naive, misguided, guilt-ridden teenage girl who, especially after Blue Moon, you feel sorry for, she has now crossed over to utter idiocy...incapable of learning from her past mistakes, pathetic in her lack of any inkling of intuition or common sense, frustratingly full of herself and displaying such arrogance in her "powers" that one cannot help but feel she's gotten exactly what she deserves and all pity rests with those unfortunate enough to be connected to her and thus suffer her consequences. I really wanted to like this author and her series...first thoroughly enjoying Evermore, then feeling unsure after reading the melodrama of Blue Moon, but still willing the author to redeem herself with Shadowland. Sadly, it wasn't even close. It's almost amazing to me that an adult wrote this series...so focused on appealing to the shallow, commercialized, morality lacking, dumbed down current generation of pre-teens and teens. Bottom line, this series is truly not meant to go beyond the 12-15 year old segment of the Young Adult market.

I loved both Evermore and Blue Moon; I couldn't wait for this book to come out. But I was a little disappointed. Everything was happening so fast and all at one time. And Ever was a little selfish in this book and a little snobby. She's the reason all these problems are arising and she takes the blame for them but then she makes remarks about being angry things aren't being resolved as fast as she wants them. And really the ending doesn't solve anything. All the problems are still the same in the end, nothing gets solved. WILL THE GIRL EVER LEARN? Hadn't she already made enough mistakes and she just ignores everything everyone says and does the things she wants anyways, which tends to lead her to much more problems before she's even fixed the last one. It was wonderfully written but I felt it was unfinished, the book is titled Shadowland and yet it only talks about it one or two times. As I said nothing gets solved and some things aren't even explained. Definitely disappointed!

Holy crap. That's all I have to say. Alyson Noel does not know how to make Ever a smart character! I loved the first book, Evermore, Blue Moon wasn't too bad, but Shadowlands was depressing! Ever cannot make a right decision and listen to the people she truly loves...it is frustrating. I just hope Dark Flame, her next book, will be better.

The first book, Evermore, was not great but not boring either. It was consistent and I liked Ever at first. The second book only kept me interested because I wanted to know what would happen with Damen and it was very predictable. Shadowland is very disapointing. Nothing really interesting happend until after halfway through the book. Ever's character is starting to frustrate me. It's like she doesn't know how to think. Damen's character is no longer interesting either and acts too much like her parent and not her eternal love. He doesn't even make that big an effort to find a solution to their very huge problem. The plot is super boring too. I am not even going to finish reading this book. I might stop reading the series as well if Dark Flame is not better than all these books.

Loved the other books in the series, but was a little disappointed in Shadowland. Ever seemed to be rushing around to solve a problem only to create more, and she seems not to listen to advice especially from Damen.

I loved these books they are absoultely awesome! The romance between the Damen and Ever is breathtaking.. the only thing i didnt like was that at the end of this book it doesnt say anything about what happend to jude.. and that one person (if you read the book you know who im talking about) should not have been changed!! that was annoying to me..grr... >:( anyways i think that between the choices that Ever had to make she should have let that person die a human... but thats just me.. so cant wait for the next book and you should read these series!!!

Evermore was a book I literally couldn't put down. I evewn called into work to finish the book in less than a few hours. Blue Moon was a good book in the respect that it left you hanging and we all know that anything that leaves us in limbo also compells us to highly anticipate the next installment. However, at some point Ever became a little annoying. She used to be the heroine and now she plays the victim all too well. Of course I still can't wait for the fourth book, but I seriously hope it takes a different turn for Ever like she kicks some butt again or something that shows she isn't the wuss I have pegged her to be in Shadowland. Still love Alyson Noel and all her wonderful books.

After reading the first book I was not in the least bit interested in continuing to read a series which lacked an admirable, if not bearable female lead. However, my younger sister managed to get my mother to buy the second book and again I was dissatisfied with Ever. Not only did the book take way too long to get to the point and plot, but Ever continued to show that not only was she pathetic but that she clearly has no real understanding of her powers or any common sense for that matter. Now after reading the third book I am thoroughly upset. The story line drags until the last few chapters at which point it becomes rushed. Not only is Ever a weak main character but, for lack of a better insult, she is stupid. If the quality of a book is not up to par, the least an author can do is create a character that is captivating and somewhat intelligent. Honestly, for a girl that can read a book in a touch, with power's of such magnitude, you'd think there would be an actual display of such knowledge at some point in the series. Furthermore, the whole "I'm going to leave you because that is what's best for you" and "I'm so selfish for wanting you to be with me" boyfriend trait is getting played out. Honestly, there wasn't enough Ever/Jude in book action or chemistry for Damen to really feel threatened despite the fact that Jude continues to reappear throughout Ever's lives. If Noel is trying to pull off the whole love triangle thing she needs to do a better job. Having said that I hope that you take this heavy criticism into consideration before purchasing this book, or any in the series.

this book was long awaited for as a fan of the immortal series. i fell in love with the first two books of the seies and this book hooked me in from the first page. i couldnt stop reading which, in my eyes, is such a good thing. this series has really helped me grow in my imagination and is different than all the vampire books that have crowded my bookshelves these past six months. but not to different. the author really capture me with her edge of magic and the power damen and ever retain. but, in my eyes, ever could have been made a little stronger in this book compared the the books that came before this one. i really would have liked to see her grow a little more and come into her own immortal person. also like most (spoiler!!!!) i would have loved to see them find an anedote for their problem but in the end, that is one of the reasons i will buy the next book. i really hope the next one ties up the loose ends that were left. i recommend this book to those who like all of the good vampire books out there and i think they will enjoy the twists that the author provides. my only word of advice is to wait until the next one (dark flame) hits store this summer if you have trouble waiting for suspense from the end of this book that you will most definitly experience.

I have to say I was disappointed with this thrid book in Alyson Noel's Immortals series. It didn't live up to the excellence of the first two installments in the series. Alyson Noel seemed to be repeating things she'd already written and it makes you wonder if she ran out of things to write. This book wasn't horrible; it was just mediocre when I was expecting something great. First of all, the top two reasons I love this series are the romance and the fact that I really like the heroine and narrator, Ever. This time around, however, Ever came off as a selfish girl who couldn't do anything but whine. Her lack of good judgement and her repeating to make bad choices did not endear her to me or make me sympathetic as it did in the past. After awhile it starts to get old and I felt like screaming at her to make better choices. Her foolishness is ruining all the characters' chances of happiness. The romance, you ask? Well it was a little hard for Ever and her immortal hottie, Damen, to have much romance because of the fact that due to Ever's stupid choices in Blue Moon, they are cursed to never be able to touch. The pain this causes these star-crossed lovers is painful, and even more painful to the reader, who starts to get bored. There was a new character- and love interest -in Jude, the laid-back surfer dude with magical abilities. This of course, created a love triangle, but it wasn't as interesting as you might think. The story line was definitely lacking and the plot didn't even become clear until two-thirds of the way in. Once it was introduced, things picked up. There was a nail-biting climax and interesting parts about magic and spells. Shadowland was decent but not great. I would read it if you don't want to give up on the series. I hope Alyson Noel climbs out of her rut in the fourth book and bounces back with an exciting installment this series deserves.

The first two books were okay, but this book just totally trashed the series. I was so lost, the plot was crazy and why can't Ever just grow up?! The book was long and drawn out, and the writing was not that good. It was like the author was drunk when she wrote this book. I don't think I will read the next books in the series, and I am probably going to sell it on Craigs List tonight.

I loved Evermore and Bluemoon but Shadowland was a sad way to continue the story. Ever from my point of view has become selfish and only cares about what is going on in her world. She is never willing to give something of her own to others. She seemed to have changed in this book,which confused me. I only hope that Dark Flame is better and not such a distaster.

When i read Evermore i fell in love with it and couldnt wait too read the other one. But when i read Blue Moon i was very dissapointed.So when i started ot read this book i thought it was going to leave me with a better view of the series. But unfortuantely it was almost as dissspoinitng as the second book. The way the story line and characters are developing is really a bummer and is making me think that i shoulcnt reead the next ones.I still am thought just to see if the series is worth it

In my own words, I think that this book was a step-back in the series. I feel that this book wasn't able to live up to the first and second books in the series. I really enjoyed the first book and although the second book wasn't as good as the first book, it was still a good book. But I feel that this book isn't nearly as good as the first and second in the series.

Ever keeps on making stupid mistakes from not listening to her trusted friends (she listens to her enemy instead, hello?!?!?!?! where is the sense in that???). She thinks she knows everything and instead she makes everything worst. I don't feel any pity for her whatsoever. When I was reading the book I really wanted to choke the life out of her. She is stupid and selfish. Damen isn't better either. I guess they do make a perfect match. Both of them ain't making any sense. I really hope the next book will be a lot better than this. The series had a great possibility, until this book came out. Come on, you can do better. I can hardly finish this book but since I already read the previous 2 then I had to finish this one too. Please don't make the characters act so stupid.

I love this series! It is the best! You can definatly be put on the edge of your seat in this book. Alyson Noel did a wonderful job. Even though I absolutly love this series, I have to say that I was a little dissappointed. Some of the events were predictable. Like I said.... overall.... it was WONDERFUL!!!!!

This is the 3rd out of 6 books planned for the Immortal series. I really enjoyed this one. The series is very well done and I am excited for the next book "Dark Flame" which is released July 6th. Those who have read the first two and are thinking about starting this one should know that not much is solved/changes from "Blue Moon" to "Shadowland." Despite the lack of resolutions to problems posed in the previous book "Shadowland" is packed full of new information, back-story, and some new characters/immortals. Also, if you were bothered by Damen lack of presence in "Blue Moon" you won't be much happier in "Shadowland." I recommend this book for those who enjoyed the first two and plan to see the series through, if this does not describe you then don't bother because this is defiantly not a book that can stand alone outside the series.

Shaowland was not good not bad but just ok. The thing I do like about this series as a whole is that they are quick reads. Nothing too much happens in this book though. I do like the character of Jude & can't wait to find out more stuff about him in the next book. I felt she used the word gape way too much it seemed like the only expression that Ever had. Which eventually came my pet peeve in the book. I'm really hoping the next book Dark Flame I think it's called is better. The last 2 books have just been ok. I want this series to make me want to read it not just read it because I've already gotten 3 books into the series

Is it just me or are all of her books depressing? Her books make me sad and feel alone while other books make me feel like the characters are my family and friends and I'm having an adventure with them.

I think in books that are part of series, there are always those books at kind of the mid point of the series where their point for being really is to (a) introduce important characters for a later story and (b) explain and / or present some things that are necessary for later plots. In these books, not a whole lot significant seems to happen beyond those two purposes but when you reach the end of the series, you realize how important it was that you actually read that specific book because otherwise you totally would have missed out on some really important things. I hope that this is one of those kinds of novels, and not a shadow of the way this series is going to go forward. I agree wholeheartedly with some of the criticism of this book. It was a little slow and pretentious, Ever became somebody you wanted to kick rather than somebody that you wanted to root for, and I did not feel at the end like anything was resolved or explained. And, at first read, the book seemed very straight forward which I was not expecting. I was after some kind of twist at the end or some big ephiphany. There wasn't really one. But, I do want to remind everyone that we are only at what is probably, from everything I have read about this series, at the midpoint. So, I would not yet say that this book is not worth reading or that it is something you should skip if you follow this series. I will reserve judgement on that until we have the series in total to look at. I remain a big fan of how Noel develops her characters, and I think the very fact that I want to smack Ever in the head is testiment to how she has been able to bring these characters to life. If any character in a book can arouse that kind of response in me, the author is doing something right. I think Miles and Haven are both very realistic and easy to relate to in many ways. I do like that Damen is very thoughful and careful in his responses and reactions, however I would like to see him doing some things other than hanging out, thinking, and worrying about Ever. How about showing a little fire? Really, come on...your eternal soulmate might be veering towards another person and you just figure you need to let it go because it is karma? Seriously? But, this series continues to be an easy read, or something that you can grab and read while you are on the bike at the gym or hanging out waiting for the doctor. And, it remains enjoyable. But, this book was not my favorite. I think Blue Moon had a stronger plot and much better pacing.

I was a little disappointed with this book. It just fell flat somewhere along the way for me. I didn't feel the chemistry between Ever and Damon. So much so that I started to root for Jude a little, but I didn't feel much of the chemistry there either. Ever and Damon seemed to be making bad decision after bad decision. Shadowlands kept my attention, but there wasn't much forward movement in regards to the plot, so maybe this book was meant to solely be a Jude introduction. I'm not sure. I would like to learn more about him in upcoming books though. There's something intriguing about the characters. I love how they all have intertwining histories. I feel like this is all going somewhere..building towards something, I'm just not sure what that is yet.

Damen always works hard to get everything right in both worlds of the mortal and immortal. However, there are troubles that magick cannot fix. There are a lot of obstacles in young love - mortal or immortal. We don’t always win in the end.
