Reviewed at Girls Without a Bookshelf

I must admit I was a teeny-weeny bit skeptical about this book. The blurb at the back sounds too complicated - a damaged girl whose past I thought would take the bulk of the narration (and I absolutely dislike this) - my misconception lasted until the first page, and I am so so glad I gave it a chance.

Surprisingly, the complex characters were easy to relate to. The narration was smooth, never draggy and even beautiful at times. It was such a smooth read, so far from what I thought, that I didn't even realise it was written in the present tense. It just flowed. And I loved it to bits for that, for making such complexities simple.

I absolutely adore the characters (so diverse. I like!) - Miles and Riley in particular - and I am such a sucker for loving siblings and yearning for the dead that I just devoured the book.

The romance - Oh my God - if, like me, you like like like forbidden, mysterious romance with the forbidden, mysterious guy, you would absolutely love Evermore. Damen was such a well-written character with such humorous and unpredictable (not to mention bad-boyish) side that I ended up gushing over each of Ever's and Damen's interactions.

At the end, everything ties up together - all the inconsequential details, the romance, the intrigues, the mysteries - and it's one of those romantic books that sucks you right in and makes you read like hell and takes you into a rollercoaster ride of emotions and a touch of moral lessons.

I must get Blue Moon (out 5th March in the UK) and Shadowland (WHY is it not in the UK yet???)
