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 dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever's powers are increasing, Damen's begin to fade after he is stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.

Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, where she uncovers not only the secrets of Damen's past - the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden - but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them - or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day....

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.


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 not to go all the way? After hours of make-out sessions, where hormones call at you desperately, let me ask again. SERIOUSLY?????

And the ending, Oh. My. God. Kill me. How could she trust the bad guy, after he confessed all the bad things he has done? No matter how desperate you are for help. If a freaking ghost [or whatever the hell that thing was] tells you to stop, you STOP. I found this thing Irrational, and it simply drove me insane. In case you're wondering, Yes I bought the third book...

Αυτή η σειρά έχει μια μοναδική ικανότητα να με απογειώνει στην αρχή των βιβλίων και στη συνέχεια να με κατεβάζει… κατεβάζει… κατεβάζει… ολο και περισσότερο!!

Μέχρι τη μέση ήμουν να σκάσω! Γυρνούσα σαν τρελή τις σελίδες για να μάθω τι έγινε έτσι ξαφνικά!



Στασιμότητα... η εξέλιξη σαν να μείωσε ρυθμό, μέχρι που έγινε ό,τι πιο χαζό μπορούσε να γίνει.

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 the characters into being interesting and smart, but they never failed to disappoint. This is one of the worst books I've ever read....and I've read all four installments of the Twilight Saga.

Stephenie Meyer really likes it when her characters shudder....do you know what Alyson Noel likes her characters to do? Shrug. A LOT. Even when they're not "shrugging", they're "lifting their shoulders".

Someone please buy Alyson Noel a dictionary, a thesaurus, and perhaps a book on human body language. She would benefit.

I hated this book, but I can't separate my frustration over Ever's stupid decision making from my annoyance with the book, so I don't know if I hated it because of what happened in it or because it just sucks. I kind of think I hated it because of the book's outcome, which then leads me to admit that maybe I sort of liked it and let it get to me so much that the end angered me and led me to believe that I hated it. Are you confused yet? I am. So, in a nutshell, the whole book is about the fact that despite falling in love with each other over and over for hundreds of years, Ever and Damen have never had a chance to erm, consummate their love because Ever has always been murdered before that could happen. Finally, it seems no obstacles stand in their way. ALAS, 'tis not to be. Damen is stricken with some sort of sickness and Ever must work out what has happened in time to save him. She does save him despite her extreme stupidity. She trusts the villain of the book instead of two girls who befriended her sister before she "crossed over" and therein lies my extreme frustration. Who would do that?? Hmm, let me think: trust two girls my sweet, dead 12 year old sister trusted or trust the evil immortal who has poisoned the man I am destined to be with forever? That does not seem like a hard decision to me. After Ever distrusted Roman (the evil immortal) from first laying eyes on him, WHY would she suddenly put her and Damen lives in his hands? I maintain, she wouldn't, and that fact that she did MADE ME SO AGGRAVATED. For being so stupid, she deserves never to be able to touch him again.

This was a YA paranormal romance, which picked up where the first book left off.

I liked Ever in this but she was entirely too trusting at times. I felt sorry for her when things started going wrong with Damen though and she was powerless to do anything about it.

The storyline in this was about Damen suddenly turning on Ever and wanting nothing to do with her, and Ever not knowing why. There was a new guy at school who seemed to want her even when she turned him down, and things just generally seemed to be going wrong for her. This was an enjoyable story, and it held my attention well throughout.

The ending to this was a giant cliff-hanger!

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.

Y continuamos con la historia de Ever y Damen. Si bien esta segunda entrega estuvo un poco mejor; la trama comienza con el gran conflicto relacionado con la pérdida de la virginidad (🙄) de la protagonista.

Con ese inicio intuía que la historia sería muy plana; no obstante, la autora introduce a nuevos personajes. Y he de admitir que el antagonista, Roman (guapo, sexy, bla bla 🙄como todos los personajes de esta historia) se lleva todo el peso; entregando más dinamismo, misterios e información respecto al pasado de nuestro protagonista misterioso, Damen.

Respecto a la protagonista Ever, siento que es un personaje que se queda estancado, no evoluciona, siempre hace lo que no tiene que hacer y confia en quien no debe confiar; es decir, todos los problemas y futuros conflictos son a causa de sus decisiones.

En cuando al desenlace, estuvo bastante innovador, dejando el camino listo para el tercer libro; aun así, siento que quedaron varios cabos sueltos, información que no nos entrego respecto a ciertas acciones que realizan algunos personajes secundarios y principales que nos llevan a ese final.

Aun así, la historia es adictiva, fácil de leer; cumpliendo el objetivo de entretener.

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 was a bit surprised to find that Buttercup is still, apparently, a hermaphrodite, having been called both a "he" and a "she," once again on the same freaking page.) And, really, it didn't have any problems that the first book didn't. In fact, the protagonist (and thus the narration) is, I'm going to say, less annoying, less inconsistent, and less of a sloppy mess. So, that's a plus. She's still pretty insufferable, though. So is Damen, just like before, but - here's another plus - he gets much less screen time and dialogue in this book. Score!
The plot is about as non-existant/full of holes/terrible as it was in the first book. However, Drina, our (inadvertently) comically inept villain (with a much too convoluted plan) from the first book has been replaced with Roman, our (inadvertently) comically inept villain (with a much to convoluted plan) from this book. But, hey, he didn't get killed with the power of love. Double score! Also, he, like, half managed to succeed. And by that, if I have interpreted the book correctly, I mean, "totally succeeded." Maybe this would lead to a triple score, as I really don't like the protagonists of this series and would enjoy watching someone completely out-smart them, except that he took a whole freaking book to accomplish what I - even without omnipotent powers that "immortal juice" apparently gives you sometimes - could have accomplished in like, an hour, provided I already had the plot devices of alchemy stuff (which the protagonist pretty much got simply by asking some random lady) a syringe, and a large frying pan for beating both the protagonist and her love interest over the heads until unconscious. And you know, I could probably replace the syringe with a very sharp toothpick, and the frying pan with a sock, because I am sure both Ever and Damen have very soft and therefore sensitive skulls.
So, this book is actually slightly better than the first one. But it's still pretty bad. When reading it, to keep yourself from falling asleep, I would recommend reading all of Roman's dialogue out loud in an amazingly fake British/Cockney accent. This can be disappointing as Roman isn't really in all that much of the book, but it certainly does pay off in the end, possibly giving me enough giggles to justify checking this book out from the library.

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 never saw it coming. Fabulous.

Pieces of Damen’s history are revealed as well as some glimpses in to Ever’s previous lives. I have to admit that was one of my favorite aspects of the story. Damen’s character was displayed on a whole new level in this novel, if you didn’t feel a connection with him in Evermore, you’ll be sure to in Blue Moon. Not to mention the new incredibly enticing characters introduced; Roman, Romy and Rayne.

Evermore was good, but Blue Moon is phenomenal. If you’re looking for a new fantasy series that’s worth reading, be sure to check out the Immortals series.

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 hurry up and get it on but she has all of eternity so what's the rush but he really wants to because he's never been able to have sex with her and she should really just give him that and I AM GOING TO SLAP HER. I'm hoping things pick up and they stop being so incredibly irritating because, if that doesn't happen, I won't make it through the second CD.

I listened to the whole thing and I will not be continuing this series. I'm still going to give Riley's story a try, but Ever and her I-really-need-to-have-sex-though-I-just-never-manage-it-and-OH-NO!-NOW-I-CAN'T!-oh-and-I-have-forgotten-how-to-use-reason drama can just go on without me.

MORE? MORE! @ P.S. I love that book!

THE WORLD: So pretty much the same as in the first book. We have our world and then in addition we have these supernatural immortals. Oh and yes we also have Summerland which is basically a place between life and death and where everything you want you can have.

CHARACTERS: So main character is named Ever which just for the record I really like. In the first book I really loved Ever but now she became a little bit annoying. Basically, in the second book Ever becomes a very stereotypical teenager which I of course cannot tolerate. But don't worry, it did not get to the point where I could not stand her at all anymore. I have problems with her character but all can be remedied in the future, hopefully. Now you ask me why I find Ever so annoying suddenly? The thing is another evil guy from the past comes and wants to destroy Damen this time. Therefore, Damen starts loosing his memory and basically everybody around Ever too. So she has to make this magic portion to put everything back together before it is too late. And therefore, she starts creaking out and just acting purely stupid at some points. I liked Ever way more when she was rational. But oh well. Okay so obviously the love interest in this book is Damen. Well, did not like him in the first book and that has not changed. Only good thing was that with him losing who he was basically Damen was not much present in the book. Whoop whoop! That is about it. There is also a an evil guy but just like with evil girl in book one they are not really characters but more of the probes. Oh and no more Ever and Riley talking, that I missed greatly.

LOVE: It was kinda refreshing having Damen not know Ever. It is like taking a break and I really enjoyed it. But frankly, I really don't care about Ever and Damen relationship. All I care about in this book is Ever herself.

PLUS: It had this concept of Summerland which I found rather enjoyable. And well obviously magic.

MINUS: It kinda felt like the first book was rewritten with an evil figure concentrating on Damen rather than Ever this time.

OVERALL: I think this book had a famous second book syndrome. Therefore, third book of I come.

MORE? MORE! @ P.S. I love that book!

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 figured out. And, even added surprises that make you demand more.

I would have to have seen more of Damen, because he is one of the protagonist. This did leave me with many questions, but I'm pretty sure that lots of these questions will be answered in the next book.

Definitely, this book was more exciting than the first book. Hopefully, the next book will be as impressive as this one.

It took me a few days to get back into the story’s ‘world’, it kind of dragged at first but from the middle to the end I was already back into it. The final chapters were the best, I was on edge waiting for what would happen.
Can’t wait to see what’ll happen next!

Blue Moon is one of those books that I can't just enjoy the "journey" of reading the whole story but I just want to get to the end to see what happens. It was frustrating and I wanted to skip over the middle. To be honest I could have and not missed out on much. I'm not sure why I continue to put myself through the torture of reading these books. I have many complaints about this story.
First, Damen seems like the typical guy who just wants to get into the girl's pants. All the while he continues to say, "I don't want to pressure you...blah, blah, blah." She obviously isn't ready to have sex because she backs off at the last moment every time. But yet she is made to feel guilty because she has "known" him for 400 years (though she has no recollection of this); a guilt that I can't help believe that he's responsible for. For example when he gave her a look of doubt when she told him "I just need more time" and she had to explain herself that she doesn't remember the last 400 years. It reminded me of that the typical guy who says, "But I love you. Don't you love me". I found it despicable that his next move after this conversation was to get a hotel room!!! He then got upset with her that she wasn't immediately excited. Was I the only one thinking, "What the hell? What a jerk!"? This is one male protagonist that I can honestly say I find to be unappealing. He is not the chivalrous, "Renaissance" man that Noel tries to depict. I had a hard time believing in their "love" for each other. I realize that they have 400 years of history, but honestly Ever doesn't remember ANY of it except for the last few months (or is it weeks-however it's been since they finally reunited). Yea, yea I know she felt something was familiar with him but still Noel fails to make me believe or see the deep-rooted love they supposedly have for each other.
My second issue is the lack of developed characters. When reading Blue Moon, it seems that Ever is the only character, the rest just making cameo appearances, and the result is a very hollow, shallow book. I don't feel invested into the characters and thus I don't care what happens to them. I don't feel anything for the other characters except annoyance and I just wish that they would get killed off (especially Haven).
Another issue I take with Blue Moon, well actually the whole series in general, is the lack of realistic situations. Sabine's reactions to Ever's odd and "destructive" behavior are unbelievable. There's something obviously going on with Ever but Sabine never seems to delve in any deeper than the surface of things. How about the issue that Roman is out for revenge and is so devasted that Drina was murdered BUT is still willing to hook up with Ever? I didn't understand why this man that was so compelled for revenge that he went through an elobarate plan to repay Drina's killer that he gives her a proposition at the end that he's a forgiving guy and if she ever needs some "company" to look him up? What the hell was that all about?
Despite all of these issues and what I deem to be obvious holes and flaws in the storyline, Noel somehow still creates enough fascination for me to continue to read this series. I still want to know what will happen and how things will work out for Ever and Damen. The problems just seem to get bigger and bigger and less reversable. The plot is undeniably amazing and I just hope that she developes these characters more in the sequels to come. I also hope that the next three books aren't centralized on their desire and inability to have sex.

I usually try to give a series a chance so even though I didn't have the greatest opinion of Evermore I read Blue Moon in the hopes that, maybe, the series just had a slow, simple start and would come into its own as the books went on.


Blue Moon was disappointing at its best moments and absurd at its worst. Every mysterious aspect of the story did nothing to capture my imagination or interest - including the new mysterious guy who was responsible for Damen's new mysterious condition. Ever did what she does best - run around in circles while the readers wish she would do something to validate all the time they spent reading.

The Immortals Series feels like it's trying very hard to be Twilight but it's just not bottling any of the lightning that made that series so memorable or such a success with certain readers. Ever is indecisive and without depth, the only interesting thing about Damen is he's immortal and attractive, and all the high school characters are unkind stereotypes, headcases and sociopaths. The author throws in a ton of New Age tidbits but does nothing to create a firm mythos to her story to make it feel unique or let her readers feel absorbed in the world she's creating. It seems like a lot of potentially good ideas and good characters going to waste.

At least Noel stopped with all the product placement and brand names listed on every page.

I won't tell anyone else how to spend their money or time but I'm finished with the immortals series and wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

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 they natter on (and on) about inconsequential things. Eventually the book picks up when we, the reader, are invited on a shopping spree to Victoria’s Secret with Ever to watch her pick out the perfect pair of matching underthings that she’s going to wear as Damen finally deflowers her (oh but will he?!). I’m just kidding about the book picking up here but not about the VS trip unfortunately.

Most of the book is a snore fest but I had nothing better to do as I folded laundry, made dinner and then cleaned the kitty boxes. The narrator does a fine job of bringing these characters to life and I could clearly discern one from another. The problem lies in the fact that I didn’t like any of the characters and that Ever grates on my last nerve. She is shallow, insecure, annoying, unkind in her thoughts toward others (Ava especially), a wee bit pathetic and very ugly on the inside. It’s only towards the end of the story that I actually started to warm up to her and then she goes and does something so idiotic I’m back at square one again. Sigh. But it allow the big question of “Will they ever really do it?” to be strung out for several more books. If my teen daughter smuggles this series into the house to read I am going to lecture her on never, ever acting like an Ever.

Ever is now an immortal, and she's eager to learn everything - from manifesting objects to visiting the paradise Summerland.

Things are looking up for Ever and Damen, who can finally be together. But just as Ever finds her power's growing, Damen's starts to fade. He's becoming weak and he's even starting to forget Ever.

Ever travels to Summerland to save Damen, but while there she discovers she might be able to save her family. Ever must choose which path she'll take and who she'll end up saving.

I really enjoy sequels, but they 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! When I reached the last page of this one, all I could say was "wow!"

There were numerous twists that kept me guessing. Just when I thought I had things figured out, I would get pulled in a new direction, which kept the book fast-paced and full of suspense - I had to keep turning the pages.

I really liked the addition of Roman and the twins Romy and Rayne that Ever meets in Summerland. They added to the story but still have a lot of mystery surrounding them, so I'm eager to see how the many stories that were weaved together in BLUE MOON will play out.

Another highly recommended book from Alyson Noel, I can't wait to read more about Ever and Damen. THE IMMORTALS series is one you'll want to get your hands on!

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 nice bridge book in a series, IMO. Alyson Noel is doing the age old "boy gets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back..." thing. But, she does it well and I'm definitely interested in her storyline. It's not my fave book, but I like it!


I do believe that the next book will right the wrongs and get our characters back where they belong-in eachothers arms! :-) And I'm looking forward to whatever struggle she is inventing between our good and evil characters.

Things that bugged me
-I KNEW something wasn't right with Ava (what was she thinking leaving immortal juice with her anyway!).
-What was her rush to get back to her old life?? Could she not wait to make sure the love of her life was ok b4 hurtling back to Summerland and back to he rold life? Crazy!
-What is the deal with her believing what Roman says over the creepy twin?! She hates him the whole book doesn't trust him for a second and all of a sudden she believes him over someone who she has no reason to disbelieve!
-And finally, why didn't Damen recognize Roman? Huh...

So, overall- an ok read, but she needs make sure her characters are doing the things that they would actually do, not just having things happen because it advances her plot with no regard to whether it makes sense or not.

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 happened was due to her impatience, recklessness and not using her head.

Writing-wise, literary use of words were just ok, not spectacular and impressive. Atleast, the 3rd book Shadowlands have redeemed it A LITTLE, but there's still a lot of improvement to be hoped upon.

How this series continues to amaze me. I don't know how, and I don't know why. It has never happened before. Never have I believed that every book of a six book series would be two trios of stunningly beautiful books. Well, I believe so now. Alyson Noel is amazing. Her writing though... wow. Alyson Noel has topped my top author chart. I just love her writing, somehow it gets to me a lot. I totally understand Ever, and I feel her frustration just through Alyson Noel's writing. What's my recommendation? Read the immortals series. It's most definitely worth it. After that? Come back here and obsess with me over it. Believe me, I think they're that good.
