This book infuriated me even more than Blue Moon did. Because of the FUCKING ENDING.



Blue Moon ended with her making a stupid choice.

Shadowland ended with her making an even STUPIDER choice.

This was a YA paranormal romance which carried on from the previous book.

Ever was a bit of a muppet in this book, and continued to let Roman walk all over her again. I did feel sorry for her because of the way that Damen was treating her, but she didn’t seem to have learned anything from her experiences unfortunately.

The storyline in this was about Ever and Damen not being able to touch, and Ever trying to look for a solution to the problem whilst Damen seemed to turn his back on her, which was

What a waste of time. I spent the whole book waiting for something to happen and I don't feel like anything ever did. I'm sorry, I just cannot believe Ever and Damen's connection and neither could I believe the connection with Jude. Roman doesn't even seem sinister to me anymore. It's like everything is coalescing into one big joke. Ever and Damen set off to find an antidote to the antidote but instead, discover that Damen has not always been the only one for Ever. She finds herself torn between ...more

I have very mixed thoughts about this book. It was hard to put down once you have started it, but once it is finished it doesn't leave you fully satisfied.

I wish I could teleport myself into Shadowland and try and shake some sense into Ever. Every time she tries to help she just ends up making things ten times worse. She should have learned from her mistakes and left things well enugh alone. Another charictor that really gets on my nerves in Haven. She is incredibly self-centered. She broke up w

I’ve given this series three tries now. That’s three tries too many and two more than usual. I have been disappointed for the final time. I Am Done. Done with the stagnant, shallow, and (in Ever’s case) stubbornly dense characters. Done with the New Age nattering on about energy fields and Wicca 101 lessons. Done with the endless faux sexual tension and the strung out destined to be together soul-mate crap.

First off lets start with some positives.

I really enjoy this series! It’s fun, it’s fast, it’s entertaining. I loved the first two books! This time around.... didn’t love it so much.

As I mentioned before, it took me no time at all to read. The plot was intriguing, but it just wasn’t enough to satisfy me this time around. I loved the introduction of the “shadowland” but it just lacked substance in the plot overall.

I just find myself being frustrated more than finding actual enjoyment from the b

I am NOT joking, when I tell you that, when I ended the third chapter, I was immediately selling it on e-bay. I simply couldn’t bring myself to read more. Even though I just found out that in the next series there’s someone named like me – Jude (and it’s a guy, why are the Jude’s always guys?)- not even this, is going to make read more.

I feel like I'm torturing myself for fun now? Maybe? Not sure.

The only reason I dove into Shadowland was because of a specific challenge. That's it. No other reason to dive into this because I really had zero desire to do so. Still did it though.. which was a completely horrible idea if I'm being honest. So. Yeah.

Now it's pretty safe to assume that I didn't like the first two books in this series. So, just go ahead and realize that my opinion still hasn't changed. I don't think it ever will eith

yay! I actually joined this site quickly to explain my issues and extreme disappointment in this book. Let's start with the beginning shall we? When I first saw this book in the bookstore, I read the back of it and it just seem to grasp my attention. I wanted to see how Noel could possibly wrap me in a story and about auras and such. Now I feel I should of put it right back in its spot and move on to the most amazing writer Ellen Hopkins. There are SO many things wrong with this book I am gettin ...more

This book was okay. When I read 'Evermore', I admit that I liked it enough-ish to read the second one.
I found the second one, 'Blue Moon' very good. It made me REALLY want to read 'Shadowland'. But when I was reading it, I found myself bored. Oh no, Ever is freaking out again. Oh no, her aunt is going out with her history teacher. Oh no, Roman is a psycho! Please. Give me a break.
Damon is annoying, he's acting like the 500-year-old dude that he is, instead of the hot guy we all love(ish).

I came across the audio for Shadowland, so I thought I would give it another try. However, I didn't find it any better the second time around. I thought the narrator did a good job; I just didn't find the story engaging or entertaining. The narrator was actually a good choice for this book. She had a young-sounding voice, playing up Ever's immaturity.

Ever and Damen are whining. A lot.
They treat 'karma' like it is a god.
They whine some more.
Ever meets a hot dude.
She gets a job with hot dude.
Damen pulls an Edward. (ie, book 2) ;)
Roman is up to something.
Ever can't figure it out.
Ever does stupid things.
Ever does more even stupider things.
The end. Of book 3.


I liked the first book and I thought that it showed potential, but alas, the second and third book have proved me wrong.

Oh well, on to something else!
The first time I read the book I was so angry with Ever, because of her stupid behavior that I didn't pay enough attention to the other characters and what was going on. The second time I went in prepared and found a very wise Damen who has some interesting things to say and my favorite part of the book is where Damen takes Ever to the museum. Actual rating 3,5 stars.

I have no words for Ever, she annoys me tremendously in this book. At the end of "Blue Moon" she made a huge mistake and obviously

1 star...this series just isn't for me.

I just can't with this series anymore to be honest...I didn't get very far in this book, despite the fact that I started it almost a month ago. Nothing about this book or this series could motivate me to pick the book back up and continue on. I finally somewhat skimmed through it to see if it gets any better and in my opinion, it doesn't. The thought of reading the remaining 3 books in this series (view spoiler)

Back in the day, when I was but a wee twelve-year-old, my teacher told me to review the last book I read. This was that book, as you might have guessed. And though I was, as beforementioned, a wee twelve-year-old going on thirteen, I still hated this book. A lot. And as I was looking through my old books from school, I just so happened to stumble upon this review and have decided to translate it for you. Mind you it was never completed, and it wasn't an assignment that I had to turn in, which yo ...more

Shadowland is the 3rd installment of the Evermore series. In this book, Ever is back together with Damon, except that they can not risk touching each other as Ever's DNA will kill Damon. A new mystic surfer dude, Jude is introduced as Ever's bookstore boss.

As I was reading the book, I was struck by the lack of any type of excitement or action. The book just plodded along. My basic question would be - if you were dumped and badly treated by your boyfriend in the last book, why would you return t

Well this third book of the immortals series wasn't bad but it wasn't too good either. I think it's because Ever's character never changes and makes another problem she would soon regret in the next book of this series. Though the introduction of the new character, Jude, made it a little more interesting it isn't enough to convince me otherwise about the other parts of the story. It really took me time to finish this, and that this book really took a different path than I expected so I hope for ...more

I think this book sucked. 1st nothing happened throughout the entire book until the 2nd to last chapter and even that was taking forever so I just skipped over that chapter to the end to find what new and idiotic move Ever decided to pull this time...and that ending was more predictable than how disgusting fruit cake is. 2nd the book was extremely under done. I could sum up the entire book in one chapter...that's how little happened. Everythings fine..Ever feels guilty the entire book...Damen ac ...more

Shadowland continues the story of Ever and Damen, two immortals that have been intertwined throughout time, yet always separated before their love could fully blossom. This time around another immortal, Roman, placed a curse on the lovers so that they are forbidden to touch each other - and if they do, they will be plunged into the unforgiving depths of the Shadowland. The home for lost souls.

I'm so disappointed with Shadowland. IMO, it seemed like Noel crafted a filler episode in order to build

This story was nothing overly special in the Immortals series, but it was the last book I got to in the series the first time I attempted to read it as I was so angry about Damen and Ever's relationship that I literally had no will to continue. I'm kind of forcing myself to keep on going. It just doesn't appeal to me, potentially waiting 3 more books to see them be a
