Blue Moon (The Immortals #2) – Alyson Noel

Synopsis:

Alyson Noël’s bestselling Immortals series has been hailed as “addictive,” “beautiful,” “haunting,” and “mesmerizing.” In Blue Moon, Ever has a chance to bring her family back from the dead – but only if she’s willing to sacrifice the guy she loves more than life itself.

Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever’s powers are increasing, Damen’s begin to fade after he is stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.

Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, where she uncovers not only the secrets of Damen’s past – the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden – but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them – or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day…

Review:

I am totally hooked on this series but I have to say that most of this book was spent wanting to shake the ever-living daylights out of “Damen”.  I was so frustrated by his actions and they way “Ever” dealt with them but I know it was as it should have been.  The whole book gave me the edge of my seat feeling, not because it’s all amped up excitement, but because I JUST HAD to know what happened next.  I love that feeling.  I was completely sucked in.

As in the 1st book, there was still the problem of issues coming up and then by the next page there’s an answer with no sense of explanation of where it came from.  But I have to say, the overall direction the story is taking is very exciting to me.

This book is probably where I felt the most deviation from the Fallen storyline (The Fallen series is the closest I could relate the book to in terms of premise), because Fallen is more about angels and prophecies and The Immortal series takes on the mortal turned immortal and magick route.

Recommended for teens: very little language, talk of sex but no actual sex
