Night Star (Immortals #5) – Alyson Noel

Synopsis:

Haven still blames Ever for the death of her boyfriend Roman, no matter how hard Ever’s tried to convince her it was an accident. Now she’s determined to take Ever down…and destroy Damen and Jude along the way. Her first step is to tear Ever and Damen apart — and she has just the ammunition to do it.

Hidden in one of Ever’s past lives is a terrible secret about Damen — a secret that illuminates new facts about her relationship with Jude, but that’s so dark and brutal it might be enough to drive her and Damen apart once and for all. As Ever faces her greatest fears about the guy she wants to spend eternity with, she’s thrust into a deadly clash with Haven that could destroy them all.

Now it’ll take everything she’s got — and bring out powers she never knew she had — to face down her most formidable enemy. But in order to win, she must first ask herself: Is her own survival worth dooming Haven to an eternity of darkness in the Shadowland? And will learning the truth about Damen’s past hold the key to their future?

Review:

These books have gotten VERY mixed reviews and I understand why.  I think they would have been so much better had they been planned a little better and shortened to maybe 3 or 4 books.

This book was so much better than #4.  It has a slightly faster pace and “Ever” finally starts to grow up and act like an adult.  This series does tend to drag a little and there is A LOT of meditation, crystals, balance, ect to get through.  It felt a little “new age-y”, if that’s a word.

I did find that in the synopsis it states that “Damen” hides a very big secret that could destroy everything but I didn’t think it was that big nor would it have been a deal-breaker.  That was a little mis-leading, to me anyway.  The truth was kind of a let down.

I still have no real connection to any of the characters but that’s ok.  I think the basic storyline is good but it is taking way to long to get there.

I still would recommend to young adults and teens who are looking for a fast, uncomplicated read.

No real language and only hinting at sex.
