The Immortals Series: Evermore, Blue Moon, Shadowland, Dark Flame, Night Star, & Everlasting
What if love never had to die? What if karma and incarnation were really real? What would you do if everything was taken from you, if when your whole perfect life is in shambles, a hot guy tells you he made you an immortal just like him and that you were his soulmate that he has spent 300 years looking, finding, and then losing? But what if, just what if, that wasn't the end? What if you were assailed with psychic powers like seeing auras, hearing people's darkest thoughts, and knowing a person's whole life story with just a simple touch? And what if that hot guy I mentioned earlier was the only one who shut off that curse?
Ever Bloom's new life is like that. She went from being a popular cheerleader in her hometown in Oregon, to being a hoodie-wearing, Ipod listening outcast. All within minutes. But she is trying to make do with what fate has given her... sorta.
Then comes along sexy Damen Auguste... mysterious... cute... and attracted to Ever. But Damen has a secret...
Alyson Nöel is a great writer with potential as some of the best are. The Immortals Series wasn't the best piece of creative work that I have had the opportunity to read but it was alluring and addicting, drawing you into the world of immortals created not by magic but by alchemy... immortals who get jealous that the guy they love will leave them for another, prone to weakness... the type of immortal you don't see much of these days.
