Alyson's Noël's bestsselling Immortals series has been hailed as "addictive" "beautiful" "haunting" and "mesmerizing." In the second installment, Blue Moon, Ever can 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

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

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!

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

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

And my goodness, was I wrong in thinking that.

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 see

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.

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

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

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

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 be

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

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

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.

Nope.

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 di

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

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

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.

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

Upon finishing the first book of this series, I was unsure how this was a 6 book series. Upon finishing this book, I'm honestly still unsure. On the bright side, they make a good distraction and make me appreciate the other books I'm reading that much more, even if I spent the majority of the book wanting to just smack the MC.

I need a slight break before returning for book 3.

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.
