The Immortals: Evermore (Book 1)
Haven had her quirky switchings.
Miles had his freak-outs.
Ever had her hoodies and IPod.
Damen had his mystery.
Stacia had her evilness.
Honor had her following.
Every character had their own thing(Even the ones who were more folowers) and Alyson Noel made you fall in love with every single one.
I loved the plot because it reminded me of the Twilight series but not enough to say she stole the idea from Stephanie Meyer. The theme of living forever and wanting to love someone for just as long has been done so many times but Alyson Noel made it her-made it her characters' own.
Her writing style was amazing. As a begining writer when I read this, I hated how everything was written in past tense and thought that was how it had to be done, but Alyson Noel proved that wrong with her perfect present tense writing.
I don't see anything wrong with this book.

I don't think that alyson copied stephenie meyers. In fact, her books are based on greif for losing people. Damen isn't based on edward either, he's based on her husband, the perfect renaissance manAnd she had her books out around the same time, meaning she didn't copy. so, mrs. edward cullen, Alyson could not have copied Stephenie Meyer.
Evermore is a great book to read. I definately recommend it. Although there were times when I didn't understand some things. For example, why did Damen have to model if he was looking for his soul-mate? He could steal what he needs. Come on, he's the undead what could happen? Anyway, Evermore shows that although there are times when people lose all hope there are people (Damen) who care. And are always by your side even if you don't know it yourself.

Ever is considered a freak by many classmates because of her love of hoodies, loud music, and the two odd friends she surrounds herself with. Her classmates think shes a freak for the wrong reasons though. Since the accident that claimed everyone in her family of four besides her, she has been burdened with uncontrollable psychic abilities. Not only is she forced to hear peoples thoughts and deepest hopes and fears, she is visited daily by her dead sister. Talk about not being able to move on. She is constantly under a barrage of exhausting energies, until the new kid silences the unwelcome noise. His voice quiets the noise. His touch warms her soul. Nevertheless, Evers unable to become completely happy because her new gorgeous boyfriend frequently disappears and acts strange. Finally when a friends life is threatened, she knows its time to demand answers. But what if the answers and truth are unbelievable?
Evermore wasnt mind-blowing, but its slight suspense, eerie mystery, and strange magic were interestingly entertaining.
The romance between Damen and Ever was very flimsy. Ever was selfless, yet racked with guilt. She also held onto her morals even when it was very tempting to forget them. Damen could be easily conceived as a jerk. Yes he had amazingly good looks and was nearly perfect in all that he did, but beyond that he didnt have any appeal or personality. At times, he was just creepy. He was all over Ever and made her doubt herself. Not only did Damen cheapen the I love you from Ever when he kept dogging her to say it and truly mean it, he lost almost all of my regard for him. Ever held onto her morals and demanded the truth even when it would have been much easier to just give in. I found Ever to be a character I could really respect.
Im glad the author included Evers psychic abilities. Without them the story would have lost most of the chaotic and confusing mess of emotions that really moved the plot along with its twists and turns. If her ghost sister or her ability to read minds wasnt in the book, Evermore would have been utterly boring.
Many of the scenes between Damen and Ever were only quickly recapped in passing. I believe most of Damens likeability issues are caused by just the pure lack of intimate thoughts or moments shared. Damen rarely shared a genuine vulnerable moment with Ever, creating no insight into Damens emotions or motives.
Evermore was clearly a first book in the series because many profound outlooks were hardly explored. Im curious to find out how Ever is going to deal with her new life and I also hope to see more illustration of Damens supposed compassion in the second book, Blue Moon.
