Book Review: Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…

Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

I enjoyed this book so much!  I read it in one sitting--I just couldn't stop once I started.  I really liked Ever and thought her mind-reading and aura-reading abilities were so unique.  I liked the development of her relationship with Damen, and I had fun figuring out what Damen was right along with her. 

Just One Gripe:
I had a hard time adjusting to Ever's name.  It threw me off for a while.

The Best Thing About This Book: 
It was so unique.

  1. Just read it last night! I really liked it! It was different and I was surprised how things developed...I really thought it was just going to be another Twilight knock-off. Can't wait to read the rest! The names were definitely weird in this book...although we loved a series with Katniss, Peeta, Glimmer and a bunch of much weirder names!

  2. Ever's name threw me for a while too. This was a good series starter.
