How many people read this book because they COULDN'T FLIPPIN WAIT AND WAS JUST SOOO EXCITED?
How many people read this because they saw it in the store, and was like "There's a fourth one? Hmmmm"?
How many just read this book because it was available to them free through Simon & Schuster's galley grab?

I was the latter. I read the original trilogy a couple years back and I was largely unimpressed. I thought it kind of cliched and melodramatic. I also am not a big fan of Chan

Sigh. I LOVE Ivy and Tristan! However, I was really disappointed
by the ever so blatant cliffhanger. I always feel like it's a cheap
trick and a lame way of ensuring another book. :( While it's nice
to come back to characters that are known and loved, the original
trilogy is almost two decades why come back to them now? I
found the updating of them to present day time rather jarring and it
took away from the story for me. I just don't get it. So like I
said, it was okay but the original trilog

I don't know if it is actually fair for me to write a review on this book as I didn't even finish it but I still wanted to write my thoughts on it.
I was so excited to read this book. I absolutely adored the beginning of this series and was really looking forward to another book about Ivy, Tristan and Will.

I hated it! I know hate is a strong word and I've never said I hate a book before in my life, if I didn't like it I've always

I had no idea that Elizabeth Chandler was writing a sequel for Kissed By An Angel. I randomly saw Evercrossed on one day and flipped out. I automatically became so happy I couldn't stand it while in school (I saw it in computer class) and for the rest of the day I assaulted my friends with "OMG THERES A SEQUEL" and they all thought I'd lost it.

Anywho, so I requested it from my library ASAP and got it a few days later. I read it in one day. It was AMAZING. I remember when reading Kiss

The novel "Evercrossed" by Elizabeth Chandler is about a teenager named Ivy Lyons from New England. After a hectic school year, with the death of her boyfriend, Tristan, and her stepbrother who caused Tristan's death, Ivy just wanted a normal Summer break. All seems to be going well for the first part of the summer: a good job, pleasant friends and an amazing new boyfriend. But everything takes a turn for the worse after Ivy dies in a car crash. As she dies, she sees Tristan and h

I adore, absolutely adore the Kissed by an Angel series, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book! I honestly thought the series ended perfectly, so I was curious to see how Chandler would spin this new addition. I had faith though. I love all her books—the mystery, suspense, and wonderful characters. I’m happy to report; I was not let down by the fourth book. Ivy is such a great character. She encapsulates what being young is all about, while at the same time showing tremendous growth tow ...more

I was so shocked to find out there was another book! I thought Kissed by an Angel was just a stand alone. This book was good, not as good as the first but still really good. It was pretty freaky though.

My Original Review:
"I LOVED IT! I read this book in one sitting, and I will definitely be reading the next book. What a cliff hanger!"

Update: Read from 3/26/15 - 3/31/15
Well, those were my thoughts when I read this book two years ago. A
three sentence review. It's hard to believe that back then, that's all I had to say about this book. But then again, this book (which is the fourth book in the series) was the first book I read. I remembered that after reading this book I felt compelled to

Evercrossed is difficult to review. I felt like the story could have gone somewhere but after 300 pages I've realised that absolutely nothing happened. Literally nothing. With a good deal more outlining this novel would have been much better. The writing wasn't amazing but it was readable and the characters were quite bland.

Overall, a very simple read with little content. Not the worst book I've ever read but not particularly enjoyable either.

When I first bought tis book I didn't realise it was part of a series but luckily I bought the one after this as well so when I am reading that book I will understand what is going on a bit more.

I did enjoy the book but when Tristan and Ivy were able to communicate the the writing was super duper cringey , they are teenagers, not 90 years old! It was like an excerpt out of a Shakespeare play (not that there is anything wrong with his plays I just don't think it really fitted the theme of Evercr

I was excited to read this book after finishing the previous one 'Soulmates' yesterday, but some things bothered me.

This book is set about eight months after the last one, which was written, I believe in 1995. My version of Soulmates was 'updated' for 2009 so there were references to dead Heath Ledger, Google, and the X-Men films - however, there were no iPhones, iPods, GPS systems etc. Evercrossed was absolutely littered with up-to-date technology and it was just so strange to jump from Soulmat

So I rated this book three stars which really disappointed me. I wanted to love this book so badly but as you can tell from my rating, I only liked it. Before I talk about what I didn't enjoy about this novel I'll say what I did like.

I gave it one star out of the three just for the sheer joy that I received because Tristan came back; I missed him like the little Tristan fan-girl that I am. I also enjoyed that Chandler does Ivy's and Tristan's history from the other books but twisted around s

With the ending of Kissed by an Angel, I really don’t see the need for this book. And after reading it, I still don’t see the reasoning…but I do know that the end of this book definitely leaves it open for another book in this series. So I won’t be surprised when a fifth book is released. (Not sure if I’ll bother reading it, though…)
That being said, I did like the book…I just didn’t know why it was written! As I did with the three before it, I felt that the book was lacking in not action, but i

Having not read the first three books in this series, I was a little lost throughout the book. I kept having to go back and re-read something just to try and figure out what everyone in the book was talking about.

The main character, Ivy, is easy to relate to in a sense, although some things she says and does bring up a lot of questions on how she can be so trusting after everything that has happened in her past. Ivy's boyfriend at the beginning of the b

The authors purpose of the book is to teach a lesson and to entertain the mind of those interested in stories quite like this one. The theme of the book is its teaching to enjoy those around you because they can be gone anytime. Never give up on what you believe in, and to never give up on what you love. The style of the book was written as a description, it always told where Ivy was and the description of the setting made it feel as if you were really there.

The novel Evercrossed is about a girl named Ivy Who has moved on with her life after a tragic death of her boyfriend, Tristan. An accident put Ivy back in contact with him, and once again changes her life completely.

This is a great book that is filled with mystery and part Romance. Elizabeth Chandler did a great job writing this book. Evercrossed was beautifully written although, it did lack some supporting evidence in some parts but, I really loved and enjoyed this story. Its really sweet an

Overall, I loved this book. On the other hand, after a trilogy like the Kissed by an Angel trilogy, it gave me mixed feelings as well...
I felt as though there wasn't as much feeling behind Will's and Beth's characters this time.. They seemed to be way different, and lacked the strength of the character. Another thing I didn't really like was the change of other supporting characters... Not really caring much for most of the new ones, and wishing to see more of the old ones like Phillip, Suzanne

This is a weird interview for me. I really wanted to love this book, and there's still hope for that in the future I suppose. Growing up the Kissed by an Angel series was my all-time-favorite-read. I've had the omnibus edition for so long now that I can't remember how Ms. Chandler ended each book individually. It might be that the books alone were good enough, but the story as a whole is what stole my heart. I enjoyed Evercrossed, but for me it felt like the book ended without any peak or wrap-u ...more

Not only is it romantic, but it also keeps you on edge, wondering what will happen next. By far one of the best books I have ever read. I might even read it again because it is pack full of adventure, and romance.

So kissed by an angel is one of my most favorite trilogies. when I heard there was a fourth one (which i heard about the day it came out) I. Flipped. Out.

So this book was reeeeeaaaaallllyyyyy good! It was short, but really good. I also think that it was sort of slow in the begininng, but I can't get passed how sweet the plot is and I pretty much got sucked back into what attracted me to these books in the first place.

I am sooooo the sappy love-story type, and this is sssoooo that. I love it. T
