Evermore by Alyson Noel

Evermore (Immortal Series #1) by Alyson Noel

YA, Fantasy

Rating: 4 Stars

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's entire life story by touch. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen.

Damen Auguste 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 see 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. She has no idea just who he really is—or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

First Thoughts: I love this cover. The girl is pretty and the flower fits with the novel very well (well, after you read it). The synopsis really got me into this one. I have seen the book around for awhile so I finally decided to grab it as well as the next two in the series.

Writing Style: I tend to not like YA writing styles but can muddle through it and end up loving the story but I could actually deal with Alyson's writing. She is a fantastic writer and it was easy to fall into the story and into the character's lives.

Characters: Ever is so easy to sympathize. She was a normal person who got gypped of her life by losing her family. She was easy to connect with. Damen...not so much. That may be because he is a guy and I'm not but everybody is into the mysterious guys lately and he was definitely mysterious. He continued to go about not hiding the things he could do, it was kind of annoying that he was showing off.

Final Thoughts: I really enjoyed this book. It makes me want to hurry up and read the next in the series, I was really glad I grabbed the next one when I bought this one. The thing I like best is it's not another teen vampire book. That is what I had assumed when I saw the word 'Immortals' on the cover. It's just about immortals though, not vampires. Happy face!
