Goodreads Review: “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 chose 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…”
My Review: I am soaring through these books, bad habit I know, but sometimes I just cannot help it. This is the second book in The Immortal Series and in this book all is not well in paradise, Ever is getting stronger and more powerful and Damen for some weird reason seems to be getting weaker. We also get to know a new character in this book Roman, and man do I not like that guy! He is just so arrogant and showy he drives me and Ever crazy! I am guessing that is the point though, with Drina no longer in the picture there has to be someone causing trouble right? And Roman fits the bill, he is one of those characters that just gets under my skin, ever time he was talking I just wanted to say “shut-up!” Yes, I know he is fictional, but still I wanted to yell at him.
This book was really difficult for me to read, not because it was bad, but because my heart was breaking for Ever. This girl just cannot seem to catch a break, first she loses her family and now the whole school is against her and Damen well, I won’t spoil it for you but it is not good. I knew her life was going to be complicated now that she is an Immortal, but I did not see this plot line coming so I think I was also taken off guard. The absence of Ever’s sister, Riley, was also making me a little sad. I know she had to move on, but I really liked her humor in the first book and I missed that in this one. I felt as though the first book had a little more humor and this one was darker, so just expect that going in.
Overall, I am enjoying this series, but I am not so sure if we are ever going to get a happy ending for Ever and Damen, especially with the way this book ends. I guess we will see as the series continues.
