Series: The Immortals #1
Published by St. Martin's Griffin on February 3rd 2009
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.
