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 equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

Short & Sweet: Evermore was a reread for me and I have to say I didn't like it quite as much as the first time. I think I am getting annoyed with the hot/cold relationships found in paranormal YA. I do like the other aspects – the ghost of a dead sister, the history between Ever and Damen. The plot is a little based on the romance, jealous ex-girlfriend and really made me lose interest quickly. The audio was well-done, but I just didn't love it as much as I had when I read it a year or so ago.

Final Verdict: Probably not a top priority of mine to finish this series. Evermore just doesn't have much of a plot.

    I know what you mean about the hot cold relationships in paranormal books. It’s starting to really annoy me too.


    I’m glad you liked Bones of Faerie
    so much. I just got that one and I’m looking forward to getting to it. I didn’t really like Wake. I could see the potential in it but to me the sentences were too choppy and it started to frustrate me after a while to try and follow.

    Agree with you on Evermore and haven’t heard much on bones of faerie but am interested in iot now- love dystopia and fantasy so sounds like a good read.


  4. Thanks for sharing your views on all those! I’m with you on the hot-cold relationships too! I wasn’t a fan of Evermore and never bother with the next books either. I loved the Wake series, very different, although th last book was really dark! And I have Strange Angels on my TBR pile but haven’t gotten to it yet!

  5. Love this format and thanks to Kate’s have been using it too.

    Evermore has been a disappointed and am not that excited to finish the series myself.

    Bones of Faerie looks good though.

    I totally agree with you on Evermore. I didn’t think it had much of a plot, either.

  7. I really want to read Border Crossing. I think that it’d be a great book to have in my classroom when we talk about immigration. Thanks for the mini-review.
