Book Review: Blue Moon (The Immortals #2) by Alyson Noel

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...

This was a great follow-up novel to Evermore.  The dreaded "second-novel" syndrome (where the second book in a series falls flat compared to the first) does not occur here! 

The development of Ever going to Summerland was very cool.  The plot twists were unexpected and made the story compulsively readable.  There is great character develpment with Ever's friends.  I really enjoy reading about Haden and Miles.  Alyson Noel is doing a great job with this series.

Just One Gripe:
I was so exasperated with Ever at the end of Blue Moon.  She makes such a dumb decision!

The Best Thing About This Book:
The plot twists.

Appropriate for a younger audience:
Characters:  4/5
Plot:  4/5
Setting/Imagery:  4/5
Originality:  5/5
Ending:  3/5
Total Score:  20/25


  1. I really missed having Riley in the 2d book. The relationship btw Riley and Ever was one of my favorite parts of the first book.

  2. Yes, I missed Riley too. I like Riley a lot and am looking forward to reading her spin-off series!
