Blue Moon (The Immortals #2) by Alyson Noel

SPOILER ALERT! This review may have possible spoilers on it. Have you read Evermore? Check out my review here. After giving Evermore a rating of 2 out of 5, you’d think I would drop the series and get on with my life. I didn’t. I read Blue Moon right after because I was intrigued with Damen and the plot for this book. He’s getting weaker, but why and how? The book starts with Ever and Damen all lovey-dovey and happy because Dina was dead and they could spend eternity together without worrying about bad people tearing them apart. But we all know that’s not the case or there wouldn’t be 5 more books in the series, right? So anyway, Damen has been teaching Ever the Immortal’s way of life and how to control her ~~powers~~. But she figures she has an eternity to learn so she’s been stalling the lessons. I find it funny that she’s using his lust to her advantage; making him manifest a bouquet of flowers he asked her to practice on so she won’t do it herself. There’s a new guy in town and Ever doesn’t like him. She feels like there’s something different about him but Damen seems to be fine with it so she tries to be as friendly as she can be. After a few days Damen was weaker and can’t even do a simple manifestation. Ever, of course, worries and concluded that something was wrong and maybe Roman [the new guy] is behind it. But she can’t prove it so she tries to figure out what’s wrong with Damen by going to Summerland with Ava. What’s to like in this book? I don’t know, there’s no depth in it. Everyone is still shallow and useless. I did feel sad for Ever when Damen changed and ignored her. And then there was the near-end part where I wanted to slap her for being so stupid. I don’t like how the “fight” happened but I’m glad Damen’s okay. Though the way it ended gives hope for a better future? I don’t know.

Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alyson Noel

SPOILER ALERT! This review has some spoilers on it. Read at your own risk. When I first saw this book in the bookstore some years back, I thought it was interesting and the cover was pretty. A friend told me it was light read, easy to finish, but wasn’t really worth it. I started reading this book last March, but then stopped and only continued last June. I thought was a bit funny; I’d find myself laughing in my head. It’s not bad, but not good either. I guess one of the reasons I kept reading is, like Ever, I wanted to know what was going on. Every incident feels strange and stupid and shallow. I also couldn’t help but think that this is something that would probably be better on TV. Damen has limitless power. When I say limitless I mean we don’t exactly know what he can or cannot do. He is an Immortal and the reason behind that was some sort of alchemy, an experiment of his father which he continued after he’d died. He drinks this red juice which is like his fountain of youth; it’s what keeps him ~*~immortal~*~. What I don’t understand is how he got his powers. Aside from manifestation, he can hear peoples thoughts, sees ghosts as well, and he’s like a signal jammer to Ever’s curse. There’s no explanation or basis for his skills. He also doesn’t get sick. Ever. The characters are annoying at times. Ever has isolated herself from almost everyone because of her acquired skills after the accident. I don’t know how she got her powers just by that accident. Then there’s Haven who isn’t exactly a good friend to Ever or to anyone, she’s quite selfish and mean. Miles on the other hand, seems to care more about his text mates than his friends. Damen is…okay, I guess. He’s so mysterious and secretive, and apparently hot. There was Riley, Ever’s annoying little sister, a ghost who got left behind. And then there was Drina, another Immortal who was stalking Ever. I’ll just leave it at that. The writing style was okay, good enough. As for character development, well… I think everyone was shallow. I gave it a rating of 2 because it was tolerable, I’ll read the rest of this series out of curiosity and the need to finish a series.
