Don't miss Evermore, the first book in Alyson Noël's #1 New York Times bestselling The Immortals series. Enter an enchanting new world where true love never dies. . .

After a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people's auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone's entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school-but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head-wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is-or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

Alyson Noël is the #1 New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of Faking 19, Art Geeks and Prom Queens, Laguna Cove, Fly Me to the Moon, Kiss & Blog, Saving Zoë, Cruel Summer, and the Immortals series including Evermore, Blue Moon, Shadowland, Dark Flame, and Night Star, as well as the Immortals spin-off series beginning with R...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Book Very interesting concept for a story. It's unfortunate that there was a tragic situation for Ever, but I love how that lead to her developing abilities.Ever's encounters with Damen are somewhat reminiscent to Edward and Bella in 'Twlight"... expect Edward can't read Bella's mind and in this case Ever can't read Damen's aura... all in all it starts to pick up later in the book.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've read shampoo bottles that are more interesting One star is being generous... I could probably write a review that is more compelling than this entire series. The first book is okay but it only goes downhill from there. As you read each book in the series you will become more and more angry and less interested. The story drags on and on throughout the whole series and has a very un-climatic end. This series could have been cut down to three books or even better, stopped at the first one. I'm sad that I even wasted my time on these books.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Little Disappointed This book wasn't bad, but it wasn't overly good either. Scratch that, the beginning was actually quite interesting, it is towards the end that things start going downhill. Then again, my growing annoyance towards the main character might have something to do with that. But overall, I won't say it's a boring book, just not as good as some other books I read. I would recommend it if you're just looking for something light and easy to read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel Hours of my life I will never get back were wasted reading this--and I rarely feel that way. Something made me keep turning the pages, but this book is horrible. The romance is unconvincing, the characters flat, the mythology annoying, and there is something cringe-worthy Girl moves to new city. New, rich, and perfect boy shows up to school and immediately shows marked attention to girl. Boy has all kinds of odd abilities - moves fast, is drop dead gorgeous, never eats - and girl can't figure him out but can't stay away either. Ring any bells? TWILIGHT DUH

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Read the Series So this book, like every other book in the "teen/fiction/romance" category, is pretty typical. Young girl with a tragedy finds good looking popular guy who brings here out of her shell, so on and so on. BUT there are still twists and turns I didn't see coming. After reading the entire series it's hard to remember what happened in what book, overall it's a well told story though some really strange things happen. If you start reading this book I do suggest finishing the series, if for no reason other than to see how it ends - even if you predict it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! This is the first book in the series, kind of has a vampire romance-esque feel to it. It was a great read, but I definitely only really like the first three books in the series. The characters are ultimately quite lovable in the first book. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can't believe I liked this I’m going to be brutally honest here. It hurt to like this book. It was like being horribly fascinated with watching a car accident in slow motion. I enjoyed reading this book, but then there were moments where I asking myself why I’m reading something that has all the qualities of a book that I do not like? take the romance between Ever and Damen for example. I couldn’t help but like them both together they were wonderful. At the same time I’m thinking wow, this is so....lovey dovey and it’s almost making me nauseous and I’m cringing with the cramps right now. It’s so..sweet my teeth are hurting just thinking about it. The plot was good, and interesting, and the paranormal aspect of it was also good to read. Perhaps it’s just the way it was written, that just makes me turn inside out. The names for example. They sound very cliché (seriously, Ever???? and Haven??!?!?!?! wtf?!?!?!) and added more to the cheesiness to the book. Ever is not really that much likable. True, she’s been through a lot and there are times where the tension between her and Damen was fun to read but I just didn’t really like reading about her. Through the second half of the book she sounded so whiny and mopey it nearly become a chore to read. Okay, so I’m going to give the book four stars even though it made me cringe. Why? it’s like when you eat junk food. You know it’s bad, but there’s just something about it that it’s good and you can’t stop reading. (Yes, it’s like the car accident scenario I mentioned earlier). I think if the cliche and cheesiness of the book is toned down in the next book then the series can potentially get much better than this. I couldn’t help but continue reading this book. I liked the plot, and the pseudo vampire that is Damen (come on, seriously? he’s got all the qualities of one) I had to admit he’s rather charming to read. Before we go further, I’m one of the few that did NOT read Twilight, so I wouldn’t know if this is the same (I’ve read past reviews of this book, and some are saying it’s just like it) if it is...I guess I’ll be prepared to cringe when I eventually come around to reading it...one day. Would I recommend this? not really. Unless you want to cringe while reading but hey, maybe you like these kinds of things. By all means try it. Even if it might hurt. I’m hoping Blue Moon is better. (Yes, I’m going to read the second one. See what I mean? I can’t turn away!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mysterious but captivating This book was very, very interesting to read. It was the first book that I've read about immortals, auras, and all that supernatural stuff that I actually liked. All of the books that I read about that involve that kind of stuff, always freak me out to the point that I have to close the book, put it down, and stop reading it for good. And that almost NEVER happens. This book, it pulled me in instantaneously and it's like my reaction to this book was the complete opposite to the others. Evermore has an intriguing story line with some very - and not so very - predictable events. The plot between Ever and Damen is very confusing and unusual, but at the same time, very cute and edgy! I really did like this book and I would reccomend it to all who are into the supernatural and mysterious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wishing For More The book was surprisingly better than I imagined it would be. I was intrigued to read the series a year ago, but I was discouraged as I heard negative thoughts firsthand. First, the idea was just fabulous. The idea of reincarnations is fascinating as there must be a reason why the person's soul needs to be brought back each time. The immortality is a strong point as majority of the characters are immortals. And, that's what I like about this novel is that it follows the typical YA novel plot, but instead of vampires, werewolves, angels which are mythical. Immortals are just immortal beings living until they wish to live no longer or are punched in their weakest chakra. Second, Ever's past really got to me. Losing her entire family, her friends, home and moving to her aunt's house whom she barely knows. That must be hard, and what's worse is being deemed a freak with supernatural powers. A great way to show an impression when needing comfort. Last, the strange hottie who is Damen Auguste adds in the suspense and mystery factor. He lives on his own, can afford luxuries on his own, seems to know enough earning the right not to care in school, and the recurring red tulip screams interesting. It was Damen's coincidences that made me keep reading, along with Ever's powers, and the mystery of thier past.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This book was surprisingly good. I was so into it since I couldn't figure out what the main character was. I knew he wasn't a vampire but I needed to keep reading to find out what he was. The main character, Ever, complains a lot, but I didn't m ind. I was anxious to find out more. Time to read the seccond one now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I enjoyed it I actually enjoyed this book. Others didn't maybe because this is not their favorite style of genre(fantasy and romance.) The books in the series become a little bit more spiritual as you read them. So overall, it depends what style of genre you like. If you like fantasy and romance, aswell as suspence, i recomend this book. i liked it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TOTAL WORTH OF YOUR TIME :) i loved Evermore it was perfect in every way Ever Bloom was a normal girl, who was popular and lived a great life. Until one day when everything was taken away. Her family gets in an accident, that kills all of them but her. She moves to her aunt's(who is a woman who is extremely a workaholic) house in Laguna Beach, California. Since the accident Ever as been given the unwanted power reading minds and see people's aura's. That not being enough her annoying suppose-to-be-dead sister visits her daily not willing to past the bridge like their parents did. Sometimes hearing all the annoying blubber of people thoughts as if it weren’t enough to hear Riley’s( Ever’s sister) filling her up with everything that was happening all day becomes to much for Ever to handle. So she sticks on some head phones and sneaks it under her big hoddies blocking every sound. She fears she’ll never be able to be normal again, that she’d never be able to touch people with out sensing they're whole life. Until one day in class when a new student Damen Auguste comes in.There's something different about him while Ever tries to stay anti-social,Damen stays persistent. He talks to her and tries to bring her out of her shell. Ever tries to stay away though every time she's with him it's like all the other noise from people goes away, Ever can‘t help but think why? When Ever does come out of her shell,Damen seems to be a player. Ever is hurt by what he's doing, though he doesn't seem to notice. Plus Ever keeps on finding red tulips everywhere she goes. They're coming out of nowhere.As Ever tries to figure out what's going on it starts to becomeconfusing for her. Her friend Haven starts hanging out with anew girl named Drina who seems to be bad news. She starts getting Haven into things that aren't good for her. At a party her aunt introduces her to a psychic that seems to know what's going on. She tries to help Ever, but she doesn't seem to want the help. She finds out something about Damen that makes her think twice about him. Is there anyway she can understand what's really going on?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your time. Okay I know recently the book market has been highly saturated with paranormal-normal romance novels and as a result, fresh ideas are becoming harder and harder to come by but seriously, how did this book not breach copyright laws. The characters were ridiculously one-dimensional and seem to not have any type of real-life logic skills or common sense. There was not ONE character in this book that I thought was even the slightly intelligent or even interesting for that matter. The plot? "The new kid is a big bad mystery" story is getting really old, REALLY old. The entire time I was reading had to constantly remind myself that no, that is not twilight and no this is not Hush, Hush and "...didn't this happen in Wicked Lovely already?" Seriously, someone should get some lawyers on this thing because there was not a single creative or original idea anywhere in this book. In summary, what a boring waste of my time. Someone please give me my four hours back! And I now REALLY wish I didn't buy the sequel before reading this thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Long, Boring, Drag On 'Evermore' was perhaps one of the slowest books I've ever read. I read the back of this book hoping it'd be one of those books that I thought about constantly. This book sadly lost my attention after the first couple of chapters. I had no intention of finishing this book, but decided to give in a second chance. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME. The way Alyson Noel wrote this was to drag on events that weren't very exciting to begin with. I read great reviews, critics gave this book 5 stars; I give it one or two at the most. My friend was reading this, when she saw me read it too, she said this book was a fail. I've read many books, so far, this was a series I would NOT recommend to anyone. The series of 'events' and the conflicts that were faced were quite sad. And by sad, I mean pathetic. Sorry Alyson Noel, this book was a fail. But I'll say it's an epic one so it doesn't hurt anyone's feelings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blah Blah Blah- I've heard this before... I just didn't like this story. I picked this up because everyone else said it was great and I was completly disappointed. It feels unoriginal and like something I've read before. As I read through the book I realised that nothing at all surprised me and It just dragged on a bit. I was happy when it was over (because I didn't like it) but I wish that I had just borrowed it from a friend instead of buying it. This is a book that you will either love or not. I guess you will have to decide for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Really Adored this Book This book where to start... Evermore was instant captivity. I don't know why I waited so long to read it, I actually owned this book about one year until decided to give it a try. It was so worth it. This book is new to me, the topics, the paranormal side, and its uniqueness. This book is filled with mystery, not the kind you want to pull out hair over, the kind that intrigues you to read more and find out. Character, I thought Ever was awesome, her character and aspects of her life all fit so well. Haven and miles I adore, Haven rich girl who cries for attention, Miles the gay BFF we all should have, who just wants a prince charming. The only con is that the mystery was good, but I thought there would be more to the ending then that, it was good but not good enough (I know nothing is perfect, but it was really close to). Damen, Damen, Damen, how you confused me throughout out the book, I love the mystery to him, but out of all character favorite has to be Riley, she kills me. I don't want to kill the book because most of it is about the unknown, so I'm trying here. I like how Alyson Noel added another Paranormal to my addiction. This book is a bit predictable, but nothing big like I did not expect the ending not a clue. If you have read the book don't you love the whole flowers thing. What a bang on first novel in the Immortals Series, I am a little scarred to start Blue Moon just because the things I have heard are not in its favor. I will give it a try, but for now it will have to wait like 6 books in front. If you are a teen and like Paranormal, Romance, and Mystery then you will love this book. I only appreciated the book cover after having read the book. I love it now. Sappy moment.....

Since the accident she can read minds and see people’s aura’s. Also she can see dead people, her sister visits her daily Sometimes it becomes to much for her, so she lives her life quietly. She wears big hoodies and her Ipod all the time. She fears touching people because she can sense they’re whole life. Until one day in class when a new student comes in. His name is Damen Auguste.

This story is a lot like twilight. Though it’s not a bad book, if you liked twilight you’d like this book. Though it does leave you a little more loved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved it I thought this book was absolutely amazing. I felt it started out rather slow and I almost put it down at one point, but I kept reading and was very glad that I did. Once the book really got going, I found Alyson Noel's writing mesmerizing and could not put this book down. Although the novel was somewhat similar to the twilight novels, the writing styles I found to be completely different, which gave me a whole different experience than the twilight novels. I actually enjoyed this book more than the twilight novels. I also really enjoyed how Noel made the chapters short, about 4-5 pages mostly. This gave me the opportunity to take short breaks to take in everything I had read so far! I am a college student so this novel was a very, very simple read for me, which I actually kind of enjoyed. It gave me a nice break from all the textbook readings.I would say this novel is mostly meant for grades 5-9, but that's just my opinion. Overall, wonderful book. A little slow at the beginning, but once you get past the first few chapters it's a fast, exciting and emotional read! I have also read the other two novels in this trilogy Blue Mood and Shadowland and they are even better than Evermore. I definitely recommend this trilogy to all who enjoy romance novels!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from meh I wasn't a fan of this book. Its eye-rolling resemblances to Twilight were a huge turn off. It lacked an interesting plot, but most characters were well developed. This book is so unoriginal, it's as if the author read a whole bunch of teen novels and stuck them together into one, messy collage. I don't recommend this to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Very Creative and Interesting After just a few chapters you'll have so many question's floating around in your head you'll keep reading just to find them out. Alyson Noel did a really good job on this book and her creativity is flawless. By the end of the book you'll have question's answered but only a handfull. It is a little confusing while your reading. I had so many posibilities in my mind of what was going to happen, and most of them were wrong. I did enjoy this book quite a bit but sometimes the main character-Ever-makes me mad. And it's only on how she handels some of her situations. Yes the line does get a little straighened out by the end but I'm going to have to read "Blue Moon" and "Shadowland" to find out what exactly is going to happen. I do recommend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Like Twilight Without The Pesky Blood Sucking After a horrible car accident that takes the lives of her entire family, Ever wakes up with the ability to hear other people’s thoughts and see their auras. Oh, see can also see dead people including her younger sister(Riley) who refuses to leave her alone as only a younger sibling could. This turns the once popular girl from a future cheerleader to a hoodie-wearing, iPod blaring loner. Her only friends are Miles and Haven, the only people at her school who are just as much outcasts as she is. Then one day a new, mysterious student (Damen) catches Ever’s eye and not just because he’s hot. For some reason she can’t read his thoughts and whenever he’s around the world goes quiet and Ever is able to find peace. This was a really good book. Full of interesting characters and secrets that will keep you from putting this book down until you find out exactly why Ever has her special abilities and why she is so drawn to Damen. If you’re looking for a book like Twilight but don’t like blood sucking vampire scene, then this is the read for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worth Taking A Look Evermore by Alyson Noel wasn't the best novel I've ever read, as it had its ups and downs. Cons: - It starts off with a lot of fast information (eg, not actually written like this in the novel. "I can do this. Oh, and I can do this. How? It doesn't really matter. I just can.") - Ever is quite self absorbed. Her friend is missing and all she thinks about is a boy at school. Everything is her fault. She refuses to be with the guy she likes, likes her and treats her amazingly for no reason at all. Pros - It does have some real issues. Ever starts drinking to drown out her pains. - It shows a new style of immortal beings which is especially good for those who like that and are getting a little tired of reading vampire novels. I personally liked reading this novel. A couple things bothered me in it, but I'll still be reading the next book in the series. SPOILER The part that bugged me the most in the story is when Drina was going to kill Ever at the canyon. Drina was pretty vengeful, so what happened to her when Ever disappeared to Summerland? You think that would've just made her more angry and taken it out on loved ones, the easiest choice being Haven since she already tried it once. She went to Summerland and it was like Drina just stopped exising for the next week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Evermore; Will there "EVER" be "MORE" ? I just started reading the book "Evermore" and I'm only on chapter 10 but already I see how good the book is. I love the way it's written. The chapters are pretty short, about 4-5 pages each, which makes the book easy to read. It's about this girl, Ever who loses her parents, sister, and dog in a car accident. They all died, and when i say all I mean ALL .. including Ever. Except that now she's alive and she can see ghosts and has psykick powers. She can see peoples auras and she can figure out someones life story just by touching them. There's a new kid at school and for some reason she can't see hes aura, she doesn't see anything when they touch, and when he talks all the voices in her head are silenced. It's an awsome book.. SO READ IT :D

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not Great A tad too juvenile and choppy in bits but in others parts it was oozing with potential and had me hooked. There are times where I wish adult writer's would incorporate teen/ya aspects in their books. Or take a teen book and make it more adult-esque not with smoochies but with the pacing and depth. This was one of those books. I would've loved to have more meat in this book. Portions felt hallow, especially when it came to some of the plot points. It seemed as though they were tossed it and felt unexpected in plot ploy way. I especially get annoyed when the lead females don't hold a firm enough line. I found that with Bella in Twilight was way to 'Edward'. Her self-worth seemed tied to his affirmation and love. The same thing occurred with Ever and Damen. She would constantly forgive his behavior and take him back no matter what. I think what bothers me so much about this in teen books is that young female readers may get the wrong impression and that ticks me off immensely. I loved the concept of Ever being psychic and seeing auras. How she relearned to connect to family and not be so frightened that it'd all end if she opened herself out. I'm hoping the second book will allow Ever to grow a bit of a spine and we'll get some more depth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very original This book is about a sixteen year old girl, Ever, that lost her parents and younger sister in a terrible car accident. She was the only one to survive the accident and blams herslef for the others deaths. After the accident she goes to live with her aunt. Ther she discovers that she has a gift, she can see peoples auras, hear there thoughts, and there entire life story with a single touch. However, Ever does not see this as a gift, she sees it as a burden that as turned her into a freak. Ever has to avoid contact with everyone because she does not like knowing everthing about someone. But things start to change when she meets Damen Auguste. The first thing that she notices about him is that he has no aura and she can not read his thoughts. But the thing that she finds the most interesting is that his touch silences every thing. No more random thoughts invading her head. Ever finds her self drawn to him, and she has no idea why. She also discovers that he is hiding something and she is toren. Should she trust him, or is he hiding something dangerous. I loved this book. It was interesting and I was hooked right from the beginning. Alyson's ideas are wonderful and very original. I have never read a book like this book before. I recommend this book to anyone that likes a book filled with the supernatureal, mystery and romance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Fun Read Okay, so I read a lot of people's reviews for this book and it was kind of a 50-50 thing: either people loved it or they hated it. So I was hesitant at first, not sure if I should read it or not. But when I finally gave in, I have to say it wasn't too bad. The beginning starts off a little slow, where we are introduced to Ever (kind of a weird name, but whatever), the once popular girl who can now see auras and know every thought that goes through people's minds if she touches them. This happened when her family and her were in a tragic accident and she was the only survivor. Ever does her best to stay away from human contact because it's so overwhelming to see into people's minds. Her only friends are Haven and Miles, who are also outcasts in the school. On top of that, she also gets frequent visits fom her dead sister's ghost. Then one day she meets Damen Auguste: handsome, exotic, and wealthy. But that's not what Ever sees in him. Damen can silence the noise and random energy in her head and she instantly feels a connection between them. But Damen is hiding a dark secret (no, he's not a vampire!) and his mysterious personality nags at Ever. When she realizes what he is, she has to decide to whether stay with him or leave him. The beginning was a little too dry for me, and the questions in between were unanswered for most of the book. We don't find out much about Damen until about 3/4 of the way through the story, and it kind of leaves you bored. However, once things started to pick up, the story became very interesting. My rating for this book is more of a 3.5 stars than a 3, but it wasn't great enought to deserve a 4 in my eyes. I'm hoping the second book, Blue Moon, will be much better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pleasant surprise This was the first book i read after reading 'Twilight' so it had a lot to live up to. There were a few similarities in the early pages of the book. I loved the character of Ever , she could see peoples auras and hated to touch people since she could 'read' thier thoughts. I hope that Damen will develop more as the love interest. I didnt feel the passion as much as with Bela and Edward (twilight).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Novel Hovel Says, "slow to start but rapid ending!" Ever, a 16 year old girl has had psychic abilities since her family and almost herself were killed in a horrible car accident. She is able to see peoples' auras, hear their thoughts and tell there life story by touch. Ever blames herself for the crash and hates every moment that she lives with these abilities. She hides herself away with raging music and hoodies labeling her a freak at school. This all changes though when a mysterious new student comes to the school. Ever falls easily in love with him but there are so many questions surrounding him. Is he the perfect match or is there something magical about him? I found this story a little difficult to get into right away but once it starts it is hard to put down. Ever is a very easy character to respect as well as her "unique" friends. This book is full of romance but also dark twists and secrets. Alyson Noël utilized a theme that attracts young readers but has added some unique twists to fall away from the trend. I would recommend this to any reader who enjoys the paranormal romance genre. http://thenovelhovel.blogspot.com/

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BOOK FOR THE YOUNG TEENAGER! The book was good no doubt about that but ...not for anyone! This is a book I would buy for my 16 yrs old sister who attends high school. The environment, the story, the plot, the characters is more for events and situations she may be going through or could relate to. I have to say the way they discribe those "popular"/ "normal" kids, the whole clicks situations, the lunch time table settings and other current everyday things is done in a very very real, well done and described way. This book makes a great gift to give away or a good book to get your teen kid to read!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Honestly? I had expected a lot more from this book based on all the positive reviews it received when in actuality, it wasn't that great of a book . . . no offence. In my opinion Damen didn't seem mysterious, sexy and alluring. He seemed defensive, annoying, and how do you know he's sexy when he was barely described appearance wise? I think this book would've been better if a little more detail was put into it. How did Ever and Damen even fall in love? Because I didn't see the relationship getting built. One moment she hated him and wanted nothing to do with him and the next she's begging and pleading for him to stay with her? I don't know, the plot was pretty decent though. And I like how he's NOT a vampire for once, and instead he's an immortal. But truth be told, I probably won't buy the next book with my own money. It doesn't exactly seem worth it. =/

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very predictable This book follows the typical teen/supernatural genre. Girl with problems meets mysterious boy, falls in love (for little or no reason) and then tries to figure out why he is a mystery all why the relatioship puts her life in danger. It's all a bit predictable. Noel tries to change things up from the current vampire craze by creating a cause for immortality based on a loose blend of science and hocus pocus. The pseudo-science and the exploration of what happens after we die is interesting, but the book is ultimately unsatisfying because there seems to be little rational for the leads to fall in love with each other. In addition, I found that the setting of sunny southern California seems to take all the gothic atmosphere required for this genre out of the book. Where Twilight seemed new and different, Evermore is simply a redux - a pleasant read with less of a mythology.

It's about this Girl named Ever Bloom, and ever since she got into an accident with her family, she can see peoples' auras, and can know what's happened in someone's life just by touching them. Then she meets this guy named Damen and he's the only one that can make her feel normal. There's just something that's different about him... I would recommend this to anyone!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Devoured it From Beginning 'til End! This book was absolutely amazing! I would reccomend it to anyone, but especially to those who are into romance with a twist. From the first chapter all the way until the final sentence, I was unable to put this book down once and drank it all in within one sitting. Thankfully, I read this on my way home from Quebec, so I didn't have to put it away. If you're going to read it, I suggest that you do so when you have a good black of time that you don't have to do anything, because I can assure you that you will NOT be able to put it down! Not only am I in love with this book, but so are many of my friends. The dramatic and suspenseful love story of Ever and Damen is one that anyone can enjoy, really, but I would suggest that you are at least twelve before reading.

The truth is, I didn't want to read this book (even after reading the good reviews) but it didn't sound that interesting to me but my sister ended up buying it and she said it was good so I ended up reading it too.

This book is definitely for people who like reading books the Twilight Saga or City of Bones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like it I really really like it. It was a very nice read and I enjoyed it a lot but there was one flaw. When you read this novel you don't think about it but afterward you do so I guess it's not major because when you read the book you don't care. Anyways,it's the plot: I think it was a little confusing, like the author herself didn't exactly knew where she was heading and it sort of look a little bit like Twilight. I know the plot is like the novel but besides what I said I still like the book a lot, it resemble Twilight but not that much and the sequel sound so good that it's ok if Evermore have one little flaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutly Love I just loved this book. Alyson Noel did a really good job and knew what she was doing. When I bought it I wasn't too sure about it cause I'm more into the supernatural-ish type stories that can scare you. But I was told it was good so I decided to buy and read it. I read the story with it about 4 hours , I just couldn't put it down. It was full of happiness and sadness. What Ever went through, with loosing her whole family, I couldn't even begin to understand what she went though. It was just so sad but then she meets this guy and falls in love. I don't know, I just really loved the book. I bought Blue moon a couple of days ago and I still have yet to read it. but I will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable read I thought it was a fairly good book. I liked the characters and the overall plot. I do not understand why this book is being compared to twilight. Stephenie meyer is not the first person to write the type of story that she did. Honestly there are books from the 80's and 90's that are quite similar to her story. SM's story is complete rubbish, I found Ever to be more relate able to a actual teenage girl. The book is not even about vampires, I found the whole immortal thing to be much more interesting than vampires. I'm actually looking forward to the next book in the series because it is absolutely non twilight related. I recommend this book and happy reading to you all. Cheers!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Intoxicating Random book I picked up at Coles Erin Mills and was very pleased with the story, the characters and the style of writing. There were some things I didn't like about the book *spoilers*: the likeness to Twilight, where Damen would be at school, then not at school and the fact that Damen rarely ate, similar to Edward Cullen. The beginning of Ever and Damen's relationship also reminded me of the relationship in Anatomy of a Boyfriend. Overall, this was a great book, and I'm anxious to read the next book in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breath Taking. This book is about a girl who's family dies in a car crash, she survives and gets abilities, she can see people's auras and know their life just at a touch. Though, when a mysterious, handsome guy transfers to her school, things change. She can't see his aura, or read his thoughts. He can magically pull flowers out of no where, and give Ever a deep feeling thats she's never felt before. This book was a page turner, I started one night and I lost track of the time, and the page numbers. I just kept reading, Damen and Ever's love drawing me in one page at a time. Damen really got on my nerves at parts:) He just disapeared and left flowers in his place, It drove me insane but it made the book what it was, breath taking and heart wrenching.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from let down This book was ok and the only things that really saved it from sucking was the beginning which totally sucks you in and the ending which was decent; oh and also the unique aspects of this book like ever (the main characters) psychic abilities and riley (who has to be one of my favorite characters in this book). Besides these minor parts i found the book erratic, confusing, too fast paced and overall bad. i mean i have read worse but this has to rank on my worst read list. The middle (or main conflict/revelation in the book) happens so fast and randomly that it leaves you scratching your head trying to figure out what happened. The way the book is written is also a bit confusing. The plot is so overdone: girl meets insanely hot guy, they semi fall in love, guy leaves confusing the girl, guy reveals truth then leaves again, the guys past causes trouble for girl, girl overcomes issues, guy comes back to help/reconcile, happily ever after. while i was reading it, it reminded me of twilight's plot. and that plot has been so over done i could name a good chunk of books with that same plot but the difference is those books have more depth, have good unique aspects to them and use them better then this novel, and are just better. lets face it the plot can be done and done again but it is the details in the story that make it good and bad and this writer just skims over everything. Overall this book was a waste of time and money. and to contradict that point i am undecided whether i will buy the sequel. I mean on the one hand i don't like not finishing sequels and the ending was decent but on the other hand if the next book is anything like this book then i know it will be regrettable to buy it. anyways i wouldn't recommend buying this book i can name better books then this that have the same kind of storyline and those are actually worth the time and money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome for Ever More In Evermore Alyson Noel has woven an enticing beginning to her the immortals series. The main protag's name, Ever Bloom*, is beautiful and original, and makes an interesting play-on. The relationship between Ever and Damen progressed a little too quickly in the beginning, going from I-definitely-don't-have-a-thing-for-him to BAM! I'm-irrevocably-in-love-with-him, but this doesn't stand out glaringly, due to Noel's beautiful storytelling style. Diction choice was eloquent and flowed beautifully, especially with those descriptions coming in groups of three. The concept behind the story was intriguing, and it was a new take on common YA themes. Characterization was very well done; Ever is real and dimensional, suffering in silence and just wanting an escape from the angst of her life experience at such a tender age. The besties Haven and Miles were interesting personas, quircky but endearing. The "magical" characters were relatively good, but there were facets that were slightly shallow and uncredible. The tie-ins to history were nicely inserted, and rooted the story more firmly in realism. Summerland was a beautiful idea. Noel has crafted quite the introduction to her immortals saga, and it's no wonder that Evermore has cracked bestseller lists. Evermore is a wonderful urban fantasy/paranormal romance read that will be enjoyed by many teenage female fans, if current trends are accurately predictive. I'm definitely going to be checking out the sequel, Blue Moon (August 2009).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immortals is the new Twilight... Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, 16 year old Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's life story by touch. She even has conversations with the annoying ghost of her little sister, Riley. The stimulus she receives from the outside world is overpowering, and so she constantly tries to shut it out by wearing large hoodies and toting an iPod with earphones in everywhere. When Damen Auguste (who is dark, beautiful, talented, and perfect) enters Ever's life, she is terrified of him even when she's mysteriously drawn to him as his presence and touch somehow manages to calm the psychic chaos in her head. However, there may be more to Damen than he's admitting, and it involves Ever as well--involves her to the point where it may cost her her life if she doesn't come to turns with who she is and what she can do. I really enjoyed the story. The characters are fun and feel real. Teen angst drips on every page without becoming offensive even to a grownup like me. I will offer a warning that the f-bomb gets dropped a couple of times, which kind of surprised me because I didn’t think it is truly necessary. Although, the teen market this is aimed for have definitely been exposed to that language. It is not hard to see why the Immortals series will have a large fan base. Damen--or at least the idea of him--gives Edward Cullen a run for his money. Fans of Stephenie Meyer may do well to check out Alyson Noel's latest book.

But when she begins to see her peoples auras, her dead sister's ghost she believes shes not a normal teenage girl who can't fit in like she used to in her old life. Now, she lives with her aunt who gets her anything she wants but isn't really good with the parenting stuff so she doesn't spend so much time with her until Ever meets Damen, this totally hot guy who she can't read his aura. Its not one of those classic love stories but it's sure to make you love each and every word of the book. Although it may be boring in the beginning but its a book worth reading :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better toward the end Having read quite a few young adult paranormal novels, I had hoped this one would be unique. However, I found it was sort of boring in the beginning. The girl falls for boy at school has been done so many times that this one didn't feel very different. I couldn't help finding parallels between this book and others I've read. But I did find Ever's character a bit refreshing in her differences from other novel protaganists. Still, for me personally, the book was really hard to get into. It also took a really long time to actually reveal more about Damen. Although, the end was very unique and did make up for a lot of the faults I found in it. I might consider picking up the next in the series because of the ending.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not reccomend At first I heard that this book was a lot like Twilight and it's not. It is its own book, but with many connections to Twilight, like the fact that Damen can read the thoughts of Ever and Damen lives forever. I found Damen outrageously irritating throughout the entire book. I think that the author may have been trying to hard to make that character perfect and "Edward-esque". I found a lot of book quite comical because the plot and characters were so entirely ludicrous.

This book was about a girl called Ever and her family died in a car crash. Then one day she can start to hear people's thoughts and see her dead sister's ghost. A new guy comes to her school and she is drawn to him because he has no aura and she cant read his thoughts. Turns out they are much closer than what Ever thought. Also, the book was emotional because of the closeness that Ever and her sister shared (and continue to share throughout the book by seeing her ghost). This was a really good fictional piece.

It's an ability that she doesn't want and she goes out of her way to avoid human touch and contact with others in an effort to suppress it. But things change when she meets Damen Auguste, a gorgeous new transfer student who doesn't have an aura, and who can silence the thoughts and voices of those around her which fill her head. She feels drawn to him and slowly realizes that there's something Damen is hiding..... but what could it be? All she knows is that she's falling helplessly in love with him. Although the book is part of the supernatural genre, I felt that it also really portrayed a grieving teenage girl well. Ever is still trying to come to terms with the loss of her family but she also has to deal with the unwanted ability that she has. She wants to be normal again. I really can't wait until the next book in this new Immortal series, Blue Moon, comes out in August!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Recommended for Twilight Fans After miraculously surviving the car accident that claimed the lives of her parents and youngest sister, Ever gains psychic abilities. She's able to read the minds of others, learn everything about them from just one touch and see auras. Weird, right? Well, on top of that, Ever's dead younger sister keeps on visiting her. Ever's life will never be the same again. She's moved in with her Aunt Sabine and has pretty much everything that a girl could ask for(and more). But of course, all Ever wants is her family back. And for her psychic powers to be gone. Her psychic powers force Ever to hide under her sweatshirts' hoods, listen to loud music she doesn't like and avoid peoples' touch to keep herself from being overwhelmed from the onslaught of her powers. That's when Damen arrives at Ever's school. He's the one guy who doesn't have an aura, and who can silence the noise in her head. Damen is the "off switch" for the powers that Ever can't control. And of course, Ever is drawn towards Damen even though he's definitely not of this world. Along with Ever's developing romance with Damen comes danger. Drina, a close friend of Damen's, takes a strange interest in Ever's friends. A dangerous interest... But when Ever discovers what Damen really is, she must make a choice and decide if she and Damen are really meant to be together. I've been looking forward to reading Evermore for the longest time. The plot summary and the cover art just got me. (I have a thing for purple. *ahem*) Anyways, this cover is enticing so props to the cover design people! Random ramble aside... Lots of people seem to be comparing this book with Twilight* and the House of Night series. In terms of quality, I have to agree. Evermore is up to par with the well-read House of Night series. The first person storytelling in Evermore, is intimate and emotional. Ever's voice is realistic; all of her reactions as a grieving teenager make sense. Many times, in YA novels, authors make little blunders portraying teenagers. I have to say that Alyson Noel manages to do it pretty darn well, if not perfectly. It was really easy to relate with Ever as she struggled with keeping away from Damen, dealt with her younger sister and tried to control her wayward powers. The relationship between Damen and Ever is somewhat reminiscent of that between Edward and Bella. You know, that whole immortal thing, "I've waited for you for years" angle which is where the Twilight comparison probably comes in. Anyways, their evolving relationship is intriguing to read about (though, a few times, it felt a bit contrived...but just a little) especially as Ever starts to realize more and more about Damen. Truth be told, Damen was overtly mysterious. I wanted to know more about him and I wanted his character to be more well-rounded. However, there is time for that to be accomplished as the Immortals series is 4 books long. Here's to hoping that the next book will explore Damen's character more. And I definitely can't wait till the second book in the Immortals series comes out...just so I can find more out about Damen. And because the summary sounds like it has some promise (though it does seem a bit cheesy...but I'm sure Alyson Noel can pull it off.) The second book is titled Blue Moon and will be out in August 2009. (Yay, at least there won't be too much of a wait!) Anyways, this is a book that deserves to be added to your bookshelf. So go on your favorite book purchasing site (Amazon?) and add this one to your shopping cart now. You won't regret it. *It seems like I'm implying that Twilight is the standard that all YA books should try to emulate. I'm not.

Editorial Reviews

"Evermore is addictive. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about how I could sneak away to read some more. I couldn't put it down. I dreamt abuot this book. And when I was finished, I couldn't get it out of my head. This book was simply breathtaking." -Teens Read Too"Teen angst and the paranormal make a combustible mix as Noel utilizes typical themes and gives them a dangerous and eerie twist. Getting hooked on this new series, The Immortals, is guaranteed." -4 stars! Romantic Times Magazine"Readers who enjoy the works of PC Cast and Stephenie Meyer will love this outstanding paranormal teen-lit thriller." -Midwest Book Review"Get ready for a wild ride that is filled with twisting paths and mystery, love and fantasy. . . The writing style, story, and characters are a bit like Meyer and Marr's popular books, but written with a new twist and voice. And after reading the book, you too will probably want your own Damen, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice." -5/5 stars! The Book Queen"I found myself unwilling to put the book down, even though I had to at some points, because I wanted to know what was going to happen.Ever was so real and her emotions were so believable that it was a little creepy. It's like Alyson Noël is actually a grieving, lovestruck teenager. She got Ever completely perfect. And by perfect, I mean delightfully flawed and deep." -The Frenetic Reader"Evermore is a wonderful book that I believe would be a lovely addition to any library . . .Definitely a book that fans of Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Marr should add to their collections. Definitely engaging and will catch your attention the minute you open to the first page!" -Mind of a Bibliophile"Alyson Noel creates a great picture of each and every character in the book. I am a fan of the Twlight series and I recommend this book to those who like the series as well. It is a very quick read, with all the interesting twist and turns." -Flamingnet Book Reviews"I loved this book. It really keeps your attention though out the story, because the puzzle gets pieced together bit by bit, but you don't know exactly what happened until the end. The only thing that disappoints me is that the second book won't be published for a while. I would definitely recommend this to my friends." -Portsmouth Teen Book Review"This is the first installment of The Immortals series. Ms. Noël pens a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them. Evermore has a familiar theme that attracts readers, but inside this book you'll find that the author has added some unique details that sets it apart." -Darque Reviews"Evermore's suspense, eerie mystery, and strange magic were interestingly entertaining.I found Ever to be a character I could really respect.Recommended." -The Bookworm"Beautiful main characters, tense budding romance, a dark secret, mysterious immortals-what more could you ask from this modern gothic romance?" -Justine Magazine"Evermore was a great way to lighten my reading load this winter and provided me with a creative, magical story that I really enjoyed. This is the first in a series for Noel and I think she may have a hit on her hands . . . Evermore has good and evil, likable characters, vivid descriptions and a good story." -Planet Books"I fell into it easily, and loved the world Noel created . . . The fact that Ever had psychic powers was truly interesting. They flowed neatly through the book and I felt Ever's pain . .trust me, this book was really good. I couldn't put it down. Alyson Noel created an amazing new world, and after this book I am so curious to see where it heads because honestly, I have no idea." -Reading Keeps You Sane"Ever is an easy character to like. I really felt for her because of all she lost and what she struggled with daily.Evermore was a really fast, engaging read with some great characters. It is the first in a series, so I'm eager to see if we will learn more about Ever, Damen and friends in the next one.it's sure to be a great read." -Ninja reviews"The writing here is clear, the story well-defined and narrator Ever has an engaging voice that teens should enjoy." -January Magazine"Alyson Noël created a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them.
