I didn't like the cover art for this one as much as Evermore's. As pretty as it is, I just didn't think it portrayed the book as well. It's a very complex cover that takes a lot of dissecting to see the connection.
Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning.
In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must choose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day...
What would you do if your only friends abandon you and your boyfriend, your soulmate, the love of your life doesn't even want anything to do with you anymore? This is the case in the stunning sequel to Evermore.
So, I really enjoyed this sequel, although it wasn't as good as Evermore. But it was filled with so much more suspense and mystery that I still couldn't put it down.
In the sequel to the NYT Bestseller, you continue to get to know Ever and Damen and watch as their relationship flourishes and is tested in new ways. When a new student shows up, everything gets completely turned upside-down, changing Ever's life in ways she could have never imagined. Her only friends have left her and now Damen won't even speak to her.
You are taken on a journey to solve a quest and right wrongs in this book and the intensity of the emotions throughout are so realistic.
I can't get over how well Alyson writes. She really makes it feel like you are a part of the story and actually living the life that you are reading.
I will definitely be re-reading this book. It was so amazing. And it's a very easy read too, it pulls you in so much that you can't put it down and before you know it, you're done and waiting for the next one. I extremely recommend it to of course all of the readers of Evermore, but also anyone who is looking for a fresh new fantasy. Or a good little romance ;)
My name is Ali and I love to read and write. I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic and that reflects in both my reading and my writing. I'm a 21 year old college student and I like long walks on the beach. Haha, just kidding. ;)
