Alyson Noël's bestselling Immortals series has been hailed as "addictive," "beautiful," "haunting," and "mesmerizing." In Blue Moon, Ever has a chance to bring her family back from the dead - but only if she's willing to sacrifice the guy she loves more than life itself.

Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the d...more

It's official...I love Ever and Damen just as much I love Bella and Edward.

Seriously, folks...give the Immortals series a chance. You will not be disappointed.

***UPDATE***

I have since tried to read another installment, and have found there is really no comparison to Bella and Edward. I love B & E far too much and no other characters from other series can hold a candle.

It's Official, I hate Ever. The story is just… lame, I found Ever more annoying than ever. She's an inconsistent character, doing one irrational thing after the other, and yeah, sometimes characters do that, but Ever's actions were contradictory. Like, when she finally thinks its okay to go all the way with Damen after a million lifetimes. Seriously?? The girl doesn’t have enough of a brain to make the right decisions and not to trust the most obvious bad guy in the world, but she’s smart enough...more

Blue Moon is the second installment to The Immortals series. I have to say, the similarities to Twilight are striking, and Summerland reminded me of The Realms from The Gemma Doyle Trilogy. With that said, I still enjoyed the book a great deal, for Damen, if nothing else. Actually, Damen is the only reason I like this series, how sad. All in all, the love story is a bit hokey, but the concept is a good one. It’s more than a little grating that Ever’s stupidity has prolonged her joining Damen, ye...more

Ever one-ups herself in this one, proving to be the dumbest fictional character of all time.

How anyone can read this and walk away happy is beyond me. Seriously, the girl is dumb, the plot limp, the characters even more haphazard than they were the first time around. It's the literary equivalent of smacking your head into a brick wall over and over again. Although, I think that would ultimately be more enjoyable and less damaging.

I can't even count how many times I was trying to mentally will...more

I didn't think anything could possibly be worse than Evermore.

And my goodness, was I wrong in thinking that.

DNF, BECAUSE I'D PREFER TO HAVE SOME OF MY SANITY INTACT.

Blue Moon was incredible. If you thought Evermore was full of suspense and unknowns, just wait until you read Blue Moon. Noel surpassed all expectations I had for the sequel, if this is a preview to how the rest of the series will be, we all in for a huge treat.

The plot was insane, and I mean that in a good way. Noel took this novel in a direction I was never expecting, resulting in an emotional roller coaster ride that I never wanted to end. It was so cleverly pieced, so intricately meshed, I n...more

I should not have read this book. It was not good for my brain.
And I knew this when I checked this book out from the library. Because the first one was possibly one of the worst things I'd ever read. So, honestly, did I expect the second one to be worth reading?
But I was curious. I really wanted to know what could possibly be in the sequel to Evermore. So, well, here we are.
I won't rant about the problems it shares with its predecessor; I expected those, in all of their copious glory. (Though I...more

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: Ever is so stupid.

Like, not just academic stupid, horror movie stupid. She's the fool who'll walk up the stairs toward the axe murderer while the front door lies wide open and the keys are waiting in the car's ignition. Sound familiar?

It's funny how addictive these books are. I wanted to stop reading, but I couldn't bear to put the damn book down. I bought this one as a holiday read, and blazed through it in less than a day.
Erica
Well, this is disappointing, so far. Damen is still a huge ass (600+ years old and he can't have a little patience with a 16-year-old? He can't be a little more sensitive and a little less horny? He can't stop being a brooding, mysterious, non-past-revealing teenager after six hundred years? Really?) and now Ever has become clingy while being obsessed over not having sex though she thinks she wants to but she's not ready but she should be because she has always died a virgin so she needs to hurr...more

The beginning was amazing! From the beginning it grabbed my attention. Although, towards the middle of the book its appeal left, and the plot became knotty. However, the plot was like a roller coaster ride. One moment you think you know what will happen next, then something thrilling happens. This made me melt and keep reading.

Alyson Noel wrote this book very entertaining, interesting, and engaging. When you read this book you can tell that she knows what she's doing. She has the plot all figure...more

This is the sequel to Evermore which I loved so much I gave it one star. This sequel picks up where the last left off and tells the continuing saga of the newly immortal Ever and her immortal soul mate Damen as they struggle with teenage inanities and an evil nemesis.

I listened to this on audio and over two hours go by without anything of interest happening. There is plenty of bitchery and immaturity to go around, however, as we listen in on Ever and her small circle of self-involved friends as...more

The writing is simple and very well paced. I had a hard time putting this book down.

I did have a little gripe with this book, What happened to Ever? I was a big fan of hers until now. Not to give anything away but the ending came out of nowhere. Ever starts out not trusting Roman, even though everyone has fallen for him. She has strong feelings of distrust for him and follows her gut by keeping her distance. She is outwardly rude to him through out the entire story. Then comes the end ... she do...more

I liked the 1st book Evermore...though it may seem like a knock-off of the Twilight sagas, still the author manage to introduce new ideas and concepts like, auras, "elixir of life (from theories of alchemy), sacras, etc. That's the reason why I decided to read the 2nd one Blue Moon.
However, I was disappointed... the character of Ever was portrayed a little stupid. What happened?!? I guess I'm just not used for the female protagonist to be written this way, all wrong and bad things that had happe...more

This review comes with a few spoilers for Evermore, and I have to talk a wee bit about the ending of Blue Moon because it really disgruntled me.

Ever Bloom is trying to learn the tricks of being an Immortal: manifesting things, parting the veil to the portal to Summerland, and so on; but the sheer handsomeness and appeal of her boyfriend and fellow immortal, Damen Auguste, is proving highly distracting.

Yet even though they have loved each other throughout several of her incarnations across four h...more

If you were thrilled with the first book as i did you will probably like the second one as i did as well!
The story between Ever and Damien continues from the scene we have left them from the previous book!

There is so much going on in this book that I don't want to say in the summary because I don't want to ruin it for you. All I can say is read this book!

I really enjoy sequels, but they also make me nervous, especially when I loved the first book as much as I did Evermore. But Alyson Noel surpassed all my expectations, and not only is Blue Moon an amazing sequel - it sets the bar for the rest of this series very, very high! Even if you didn't love Evermore, I really suggest you pick this one up....more

In all seriousness, this book was, without a doubt, the worst book I have read in my entire life. The plotline was flat, predictable and overly exaggerated. The characters were just downright annoying, self-centered, and vain beyond all belief, not to mention rude. The grammar and word-choice was horrendous, the author’s vocabulary doesn’t exist past the word “prolix” if even that far, and the attempts at a “touching moment” are pitiful. I could have written this story when I was ten.

And, with a...more

So I picked up Evermore months ago out of curiosity with all the new paranormal 'romantic quick/light reads' out there, which it definitely turned out to be. Enjoyed the premise, fun to read and had me interested to find out what would happen with them, despite mimicking Twilight at times, run-on sentences rushing the story, and irritation with the characters constantly. twisting. each other. around (ie. Damen 'testing' Ever's love for him) and dropping the ball when it came to showing why they...more

Teenage immortal Ever struggles with her boyfriend's troubled past and fights to save him from a mysterious illness. When she is given the chance to save her family, returning to an old life, a life pre-psychic powers, she risks it all (Damen included) to turn back the clock.

Poorly written, both in style and in plot, Blue Moon's teenage protagonists lack depth and personality. As a reader, I have a hard time believing the character's relationships or understanding the rationalization behind the...more

Ehhh I gave up after like 10 pages or so. I don't even know why I bothered. The first book was one of those books I read when I was in a good mood and was like "la di daa this is okay I guess ..." but once I thought about it I realized it was actually pretty bad. And once I started this one I was just like ... "No". These books are just ... I don't know. Obnoxious, I guess. Ever is a shallow character and the relationship between her and Damen is really boring. Not to mention Damen is such an Ed...more

My problem with this book lies with the characters and I don't really like any of the characters in this book. Ever the main protagonist is just annoying, stupid and petty.

Her relationship with Damen also seems superficial and I don't get that the story was like, "Would Damen and Ever finally seal the deal and have sex after 400 years of their love found and love loss story?" I think it's a great premise to have a story of undying love that passes through centuries like they're soulmates whatev...more

The first book "Evermore" left me with some unanswered questions that were answered in this sequel that captivated me from the first page and I just had to go on reading, because I was eager to know what would happen next. This sequel didn't disappoint me, it is everything I hoped it would be. Actual rating 4,5 stars.

In the beginning Ever and Damen are very much in love and Ever is ready to take their relationship to the next level, but then Damen starts to show some strange behavior, he is dist...more
