Along the way Ever encounters the mysterious Jude, finding herself drawn to him in a way that will test her love for Damen like never before . ..

 I Give This Book 4 Stars! (see below)

So, I really should have written my review when I read this book .  You notice I give it 4 stars, but that’s because it’s what I rated it on goodreads.  But, I made the mistake of reading some other reviews before I wrote my own.  And now, I’ve forgotten what I liked about it.  All I can see are the issues that others pointed out.  So, I’m tempted to go back and give it 3 stars.  I did like it.  The plot was interesting and suspenseful at times.  The introduction of Jude and why he was there  completely caught me off guard.  I know for sure that when I finished reading it the twins really annoyed me.  But, now all I can think of is the lack of development in Ever and Damon’s relationship.  We seem to still be in the same place we were in book one.  I can’t help but notice Ever’s glaring faults.  Bad choice after bad choice do not make for an interesting series.  At some the main character has to evolve a little.  But, I will continue on.  But at this point in the series, I’m glad it’s the library buying them and not me…

Blue Moon (The Immortals, #2)

I Give This Book 4 Stars!

Description: Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning.  In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day…

Yeah for a sequel that’s better than the first book!  Now don’t get me wrong, I liked Evermore.  The story in Blue Moon flows better.  The characters are more developed.  I especially enjoyed Eve’s character and what she goes through in this books.    Having to choose between the one you love and your family would be hard on anybody.  I liked Damen more this time, but I hated watching what he did under the influence of others.  I will be reading book 3 when it’s available!
