Evermore, Book #1 in the Immortals series
My first impression of this book was that I was heading into a volume from a soap opera. It may have been the names of the characters: Ever. Damen Auguste. Haven. Riley. My second impression was that I had picked up another book from the Twilight trend in YA Fiction. Innocent girl, new in town meets mysterious hunk with a dark side. I like Noel's writing but I felt several times that I had been there, read that. The absence of him actually being a vampire was a nice touch. Ever grieved and grew during the course of the book and her reactions to her abilities felt honest.
I read Evermore in a single sitting. It was an easy read and an enjoyable one. I am curious about where this story will go in subsequent books but am not in any rush to run out and get them. I also read the companion series written about Ever's sister, Riley. I may be more motivated to continue reading the Immortals series had I not just finished the fourth book in the Riley Bloom series. I may just need a break from Noel for a while.
