Evermore (The Immortals #1) – Alyson Noel

Synopsis:

After a horrible accident claims 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 to 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.

Review:

**May Contain Spoilers**

I really enjoyed the first book it was a great start to the series.  The main characters are well written and easy to identify with.

Now, with that said, I have seen where a lot of people have compared it to Twilight…as I have said before, I have never read Twilight (and probably never will) so I can not attest to that.  What I can compare it to is the Fallen series (by Lauren Kate)…they both have almost the same premise**Girl dies over and over and over only to be reincarnated to find her true love again**  Now I loved the Fallen series so I am a little biased to the plot of this one as well.

“Ever” can come across a little depressing but given her history it’s easy to understand but I can see how it could get annoying.  I didn’t quite understand the character “Haven”, she is very egotistical and bitchy.

“Damen” is a fantastic love interest.  He has mystery and charisma.  He is what every girl wants…dark, dangerous and seems unattainable.

The sexual tension is very well written and it has the ability (as least for me) to give you actual butterflies 🙂  I did have issue with some of the timeline…I had a hard time figuring out some of the scenes, whether it was a dream or if it was real.  There were also some areas that I had to re-read because I couldn’t figure out where some of the information came from.  It kind of felt like “Ever” had a question in one paragraph and then on the next page the new info came out of the blue and it was not explained where it came from.

I will absolutely continue with the story!

Recommended for teens-there is some language-no actual sex but it is mentioned.  There is also teen drinking.
