The first book in Alyson Noël's extraordinary new Immortals series. Enter an enchanting new world, where true love never dies...

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. - From Goodreads

My Thoughts


This book.... I'm not sure what to think about it. It had a good idea for a plot but I felt it was rushed, the whole book seemed kind of rushed to me actually. Bits and pieces (Skyrim...), just thrown together to make a quick novel. This is a very easy quick read. I could've finished it all in one day.

Now, the characters, I'm not sure how I feel about Ever, to me seemed like she never grew any throughout this book, I don't like that. When someone goes through massive events, you're going to change like it or not. Maybe where she was a cheerleader before... that's why she seemed a little shallow coming from that kind of lifestyle. Anyway, I don't like her really.

Miles was my favorite character, too bad he wasn't in there more. He was funny, a good friend, and actually seemed like a likable guy.

I don't think I'll be continuing with this series.
