Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever’s powers are increasing, Damen’s are fading—stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.Despite the fact that this book was a bit different and very weird to read, I enjoyed it. I can't really explain how it was weird, but if you've read it or you pick it up soon you'll know why. It's just so different from the first book and it's just weird how everything is. Which is the point. It's SUPPOSED to be weird.
Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen’s past—the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden—but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day...
After finishing Evermore, I had high expectations for this sequel. It's a very good book, but not as great as the first one in my opinion. But in the end I was left needing to read the third book. I really hope I can get my hands on it soon. I need more of this world and I'm VERY curious as to what happens next.
Just like the first book, the sequel's writing pulls you in and gets you hooked on the storyline and you fly through pages before really realizing it.
The same characters are back from the first book, and they've grown a bit and have become more real since the beginning of the first book. I really like Ever and her friends and Aunt, and definitely Damen. I mean, who wouldn't like Damen? There is a few new characters which I'm still kind of deciding about. Other than Roman, I didn't like him from the start. He really bugged me. With good reasons, which I'm not going to get in about.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read and I can't wait to continue the series. I definitely recommend it. It has unique characters and a unique storyline and the writing is addicting!
The third book in the series is called Shadowland. It was released on November 17, 2009.
