Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Rating: 4/5 Stars

Genre: Paranormal

Release Date: 11/17/09

About the Book: Ever and Damen are back in the third installment in The Immortals series. Ever and Damen are searching for an antidote to the curse that prevents them from being together. Ever remains hopeful that she and Damen will be together again, but when she meets Jude, she finds herself unsure of her destiny and her true soulmate.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: It was easy to fall back into Ever and Damen’s world and get caught up in their epic love story. Author Alyson Noel keeps up the twists and turns and she never ceases to surprise me. I didn’t think anyone could pull me away from being a Damen fan, but Jude makes a strong case. I can see why Ever ends up confused!

Haven and Miles take a backseat in this one and the story concentrates more on Ever and Damen, but for the moments we do see them, they shine. We also get to hear a bit from Riley (via the help of others) and her appearances, even if they are not really seen, still make me smile. And my favorite twins, Romy and Rayne are back. I think these two are my favorite characters in the entire series and I looked forward to every scene they appeared in.

Shadowland explores the magical world Ever and Damen are part of in more depth and the subjects of reincarnation, spells, and fate are explored in more detail in this offering. I really liked learning more about how the magic works in this world and the intricacies Alyson Noel added were lots of fun to read about.


The only complaint I had was the over-use of the word “gape,” but I was able to overlook it because I was caught up in the story as a whole. The ending of this one will keep you turning pages and eagerly awaiting the next volume.

Shadowland is another exciting and addicting read in The Immortals series. Alyson Noel knows how to keep her readers hanging and it’s easy to see how this series is continually gaining new readers. Once you start reading about Ever and Damen you won’t want to stop!

  2. I have this one - for some reason I keep holding off on starting it. I wasn't a big fan of Blue Moon so I'm kinda hoping this one is better. Your review definitely moved it up in the TBR pile.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
