There are the small betrayals: the unkind word, the petty lies. And there are the betrayals that break hearts, destroy worlds, and turn the strong sweet light of day into bitter dust.

When Evie Johnson started at Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, her life changed in ways she couldn't possibly have envisioned: the discovery of her link with Lady Agnes, her special bo

their love become stronger even as evie, separated from sebastian, tried to find a cure for him. reading the entries of sebastian's diary made me sad because he was dying and his last memory of her was fading, still he wanted to protect her. i don't like josh. he has no business butting into evie and sebastian's relationship. it would have been better if he fall for sarah, who wanted his attention. he and evie made a horrible pair. in the end, evie and sebastian found out that agnes's real power ...more
This is a not-so good book.
The series wasn't that strong and it lack a lot of things. It has a great potential but the author blew it.
I couldn't feel the romance between Sebastian and Evie. It's just difficult to follow. It's like they were not really meant to be together. What's annoying is that Evie is just so desperate to find answers and for me, it seems like she just used her sisters for her own benefit. Seriously. She didn't even consider others and she just want to make out with Sebastian

Trust me, stick to the first one! All Evie and Sebastian talk about is how much they miss and love each other for 3/4ths of the book. It's annoying! I still don't like Sebastian, the cute stable guy is much likeable. Sebastian does a 180 followed by a 360 in his personality! Skip his "private letters" they repeated hat Evie has already said! All the flaws in the first book, become maddening in the sequel! I strongly dislike this book!

I read the first book a lllloooonnnngggg time ago, way before I was a blogger. I liked it and when Waldenbooks (AKA Borders) went out of business, I end up picking up this book. I hoped that since the first book fell a little flat for me, the sequel will pick up.

Plot: This plot remains the same as the first with a few differences. Evie is back at the border school, picking up what is left of her life. We all know that in a border school no secrets stay hidden. And before you know it, Evie is bac

YAY! Josh is in this book more!

Besides thaT, the book is similar to the first. While good, I find some things irritating:
-Gypsies: I did not know that they still existed, and I find that they just happen to be there odd.
-Miss Scratton: I won't give away the big thing here, but it seems that Gillian Shields just made something up to make it seem plausible that she would be helping. It was a plot twist that was just dropped on me and I found it annoying.
-Harriet: How does a person possess a person
Alexandra Bayer
When Evie returns to Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies for another term full of magic and danger, all she wants to do is save Sebastian, her love, from the fate he has brought on himself. On the way back, she meets Harriet, a young girl who clings to Evie innocently - except for her flashes of temper and dangerous sleepwalking habits. The Coven of Sisters, who are Sebastian's followers and helped him earn with his fate, are determined to secure immortality, at any cost. Evie must suffer ...more

The storyline looked so promising.... Evie, A haunted academy, an evil coven, a secret love that combs through time as an immortal but has now been bound to be devoured by a demon, puzzles to unlock, and a talisman that links it all. Say that really fast. I felt as though at times I had to force myself to stick with this book. Unfortunately, Ms. Shields can create amazing sentences and paragraphs, just to leave you hanging wanting for that magic again for another chapter or two to find it again. ...more

Betrayal is better than Immortal. I think I might give Betrayal a raise ever since Gillian Shields killed off... Oh. Sorry. Spoilers. But if you do want to know, then read the next paragraph in parentheses. If not, then skip the paragraph. Spoilers are never kind on the soul or heart. Or the mind. The mind always tend to remember the most annoying things of all details.

I am sitting here in the aftermath of this novel distraught by what I have read. How could a book 2 end this way? How why? I am just in utter shock.

Also in this novel I actually kind of hated the main character. I mean I get that Harriet was evil deep down because of being possessed but I mean really? In the beginning she was alright and our beloved Evie was still a nasty piece of work to her.

I was rooting for Sebastian and I love that the author had the guts t

Still not up to 4-star material, Shields! Although, you *have* earned that third star because the characters definitely seem to have matured and become more sophisticated, which is an excellent way of progressing a series. The drama is still laid sickeningly thick, though- once again, it's simultaneously pleasing and annoying. I think you were born several decades too late, Shields; your writing reminds me of the way authors commonly wrote in older books, which would be fantastic, except that bl ...more

Senti uma clara evolução neste segundo livro!

Os tradutores são já "meus conhecidos" e nota-se claramente uma diferença na linguagem utilizada. A história em si está mais leve (se bem que esta não é a palavra mais adequada), mais atractiva e mais clara.

Infelizmente, à semelhança do primeiro livro, este também não foi muito surpreendente, apesar de se notar uma melhoria significativa.

O final não é decepcionante e isso é também um ponto a favor!

É uma leitura, no geral, fácil e rápida. No entanto n

Pretty good. The story picked up right where the first book ended. The series is moving along nicely. It's definitely a YA book with the usual angst of the teens. The main character, Evie, is searching for a way to save her boyfriend, Sebastian, who actually lived hundreds of years ago but found a way to cheat death. Now she has to find a way to save him before he fades away and becomes a servant to the Dark Lord. She works with her two best friends to use their relatively new found powers over ...more
Evie returns to Wyldcliffe following winter break, anxious to reconnect with Sarah and Helen. She’s surrounded by teachers that are “Dark Sisters” and she’s worried that if she doesn’t figure out how to release the powers from her talisman using the Mystic Way she will lose Sebastian forever to the dark side.

I’m sorry but I was totally “meh” over this book. I couldn’t get it over with fast enough. Evie continually whined about possibly losing Sebastian. She was absolutely SURE she figured out ho
Patricia (Patricia's Particularity)
Gillian Shields continues Evie Johnson's journey through her past to save her future at Wyldcliffe Abbey. But Evie Johnson is not just trying to save her own future, she is trying to save the future of her new found sisters, Helen and Sarah, and true love, Sebastian. In her journey to find a cure to keep Sebastian from forever becoming part of the darkness, Evie also learns more about her past and the past of the Talisman. She also learns who is her enemy and who she can trust.

"Your real's love, isn't it?"

A great follow up to Immortal. Surprising, suspenseful and shall I say a bit disappointing?? Don’t get me wrong, the story was great filled with all the artful details as was in the first book however the outcome was not what I had expected and left me feeling a little empty.

Once again we spend our time with Evie, Helen and Sarah. These “sisters” are fun and inspiring with just the right amount of awkward imperfection. Gillian again enriched us with such

Recommends it for: YA readers, Paranormal readers, Romance fanatics
Plot: This is the sequel to Immortal and I was excited to finally get my hands on Betrayal. I was a bit confused when I started to read it. I haven't read Immortal in almost a year and Betrayal took some time to recount what happened. Evie would just say that she couldn't believe what happened and how horrible she felt for what she had done and I'm staring at the book trying to remember what happened in Immortal. I did, however, love the concept of the book. It was a nice take to see the heroin ...more
I just finished this book and though I 'liked' the first IMMORTAL book, but I had a lot of high expectations for BETRAYAL. Unfortunately, I was utterly disappointed in this novel, not because of the novel's writing - since that was very well done, but because the storyline seemed pointess, especially in its ending. From the beginning towards the middle cut of the book it had started off great, you know - it was all fast paced just the way I like it, but as the middle cut passed through I felt th ...more
For me personally, I felt that Betrayal was a bit harder to start than Immortal was. It took me a very long time to actually get past the first hundred or so pages in this book, but I'm glad I finished it.

What really stood out to me was Evie in this book. I felt that she actually grew as a character, but yet the other characters seemed a bit weaker in development to me, but that could just be me. I think the plot wasn't as rich as I felt the first one was. There was more predictability in Betra
I was kind of disappointed with this book. This is the sequel of Immortal.

I was disappointed to find out that this book is not that interesting as the other one. Though I love all the magic involved and the sisterhood between Helen, Sarah and Evie, still I want something more. I want to know more about Sebastian.

I love the twists of this book. Those mistresses that was involved in the coven, Harriet, Miss Scratton being a guardian (though at first I was furious to find out that she betrayed Evi
In this book, Evie is trying to find a cure for Sebastian. She drives herself crazy because she doesn't know what to do or how to help. The whole time I was reading this book i wondered two things: (1) will Evie find a way to save Sebastian so that they can be together, and (2) will Evie be betrayed before she can find a way to save him. Evie has to save her boyfriend and stay out of her enemies radar. In the first book, everything was new for Evie, the school, her powers, and Sebastian. This bo ...more

Se há coisa que eu raramente faço é desistir de um livro e por isso, embora o primeiro título da série Imortal não me tenha convencido, lá dei eu uma oportunidade a Traição - e ainda bem que o fiz. Embora esta narrativa continue a ser de um género literário restritivo, para um público-alvo específico, são notáveis consideráveis melhoras no seu enredo e existe, definitivamente, uma interessante motivação relativamente ao desenvolvimento da história e aos seus intervenientes, devido ciclo que se f ...more
Looking back on my review of the first book in this series, I'm not sure if I was being overly harsh or if what I said really had been the case. The review I gave went along the lines of: rushed at times, slow at others; characters weren't fleshed out, etc... I'd have to read the book again to see if that were the case, or if I was just in a bad mood at the time, lol. Nevertheless, this second book was pretty great. And none of my earlier criticism of the first book apply to the second.
