I love the cover, don't you?
Evermore is the first in The Immortals series by Alyson Noel. I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. The first thought I had while reading it was, this would make a great TV show. Not a movie. I think they could make a really cool series based off of The Immortals books.
I really don't want to spoil this book by saying anything more than what you can read below in the synopsis. There is one hot guy, (isn't there always?) but I don't even want to say what or who he is, because I don't want to ruin it for anyone. I can say that it's young adult, and moms will not be upset by any of the sexuality that I've been seeing in other young adult books (some read more like NC-17 than a PG or PG-13). Evermore is clean...some hand holding, warm kisses and canoodling, but nothing hot and heavy. Still, it was a suspenseful love story. Evermore was a fast read, and one that I'm going to pass on to my friends who liked Twilight. Let me assure you, Evermore is completely unique -- it's a love story with a twist of the supernatural.
About this book:
Evermore (The Immortals #1) by Alison Noël
Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books (Grades 8-12)
Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school— but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste. Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking— and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is— or what he is. Damen is equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.
