Alyson Noel continues her very long series with Dark Flame.
Ever has these strange feelings for Roman, though she doesn't know why and finds herself compelled to go to him, which she calls the dark flame in her. Is it Roman's magic, or something Ever would hate to admit: just her.
Jude know knowing his, Ever's, and Damen's connected past, tries to get with Ever but he has no chance with the `dark flame' and Damen to compete with, which makes his situation a pity for such a good guy.
Haven, now immortal because of Roman's ultimatum he gave Ever, shows her true colors. She is evil through and through.
With heartache and sadness at every turn this book is depressing and it sorta drags on more and more, although a really good story.

So I'm being generous with the stars, it should really have about 2.5. At first I was excitied that this one was going to be more like the first one, but it didn't turn out that way. To me the story was the same thing it was in the last book but with Haven now an Immortal instead of human.


Ever was kind of whiny in this book, she whined about being attracted to Roman; because of something that was her fault. She lied to Damen, who wasn't really a main character in this book. Then there was Haven, who was just down right mean. Why would she trust her boyfriend over her friend? Jude, the guy who also wants Ever, seemed like a different character. He learned about his past and now he wants Ever; although she tells him she doesn't love him a few times.


The action in this book moved WAY to fast. One minute Ever's sitting there and the next something REALLY important happens...there's no leading up to it. It ust happens. Then the end. OH MY GOSH! I didn't expect what happened to happen; however, I would have liked a lot more leading up to it. It just happened and that was it!


I haven't given up all hope though Night Star comes out Winter this year, so we'll see how that one turns out!

I've been having a love/hate relationship with the Immortals series for a while now. The first installment, Evermore has by far been my favorite and is what has kept me reading the series. With that being said, this was not a opinion changer for me, not a favorite to be sure.

Readers will see the characters and plot going in more of the same direction in Dark Flame. Ever is still trying to find the antidote and in order to do that she needs help. Her relationships with the other characters drove me crazy this time around. I'm not quite sure at times why they put up with her antics and let her get away with everything without any risk of her jeopardizing the relationships she has with the others. She's cruel to Jude, insensitive to Damen and sympathetic (eventually) to Roman...keep in mind these are just my opinions. I understand that Roman's had a rough life, but he's still not a great guy.

And then we've got Haven, Ever's best friend and recently turned immortal. She's got her new immortality and she's abusing every minute of it. While Damen and Ever warn her of the consequences of such actions, we've got Roman egging her on. Like I said...not a great guy. I don't know, I was just frustrated throughout with all the characters to be honest. I couldn't believe the thoughtless decisions Ever made time and time again and it annoyed me to no end. I don't understand how Damen can always take everything in stride and never get truly angry with Ever, the girl needs a stern talking to. I get that they're soul mates, but everybody fights once and a while...don't they? Apparently not Damen and Ever. Roman's personality is irksome but I guess that's what you're looking for in a good villain and Jude just complicates an already overly complicated situation. Damen and Ever already have enough obstacles to overcome, did we really need a love triangle in there as well?

I think this might be the end of the road for me and the Immortals series. I love Noel's writing and plan to read her new and soon to-be released series, with the first book Radiance, but for now the Immortals and I are going to part ways.
