Ever travels to Summerland to save Damen, but while there she discovers she might be able to save her family. Ever must choose which path she’ll take and who she’ll end up saving.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: There is so much going on in this book that I don't want to say in the summary because I don't want to ruin it for you. All I can say is read this book!
I really enjoy sequels, but they also make me nervous, especially when I loved the first book as much as I did Evermore. But Alyson Noel surpassed all my expectations, and not only is Blue Moon an amazing sequel - it sets the bar for the rest of this series very, very high! Even if you didn't love Evermore, I really suggest you pick this one up. I think that Blue Moon is better than Evermore - which is saying A LOT since I loved the first one. When I reached the last page of this one, all I could say was “wow!” This is one series that I can't get enough of. (I don't know if I can wait until February to read book #3!)
There were numerous twists that kept me guessing. Just when I thought I had things figured out, I would get pulled in a new direction, which kept the book fast-paced and full of suspense - I had to keep turning the pages. There is a lot more focus on Ever and her growing powers and we also get to find more about Damen's past, which I enjoyed. I really liked the addition of Roman and the twins Romy and Rayne that Ever meets in Summerland. They added to the story but still have a lot of mystery surrounding them, so I’m eager to see how the many stories that were weaved together in Blue Moon will play out.
Another highly recommended book from Alyson Noel, I can’t wait to read more about Ever and Damen. The Immortals series is one you’ll want to get your hands on! You can read the first three chapters on Alyson's site here. (And yes, I know it starts out about Ever and Damen's love life and all that, but the book doesn't focus on that-you really need to read the whole thing-it gets amazing!)
