Blue Moon: The Immortals, Book 2

Sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom’s life changes dramatically in
the car crash a few months back. Not only does she lose her mom,
dad, sister and dog, she has to move from her home in Oregon to the
unknowns of California to live with her aunt. And that’s not
all. She begins seeing people’s auras, knowing their thoughts
and observing the future. After finally allowing the handsome and
mysterious Damen into her life, she learns the unbelievable truth:
she is now an Immortal, like Damen, and possesses incredible
powers.

Ever also finds out that she and Damen have been friends before,
in her past lives, but that a jealous Immortal named Drina
continues to murder her and was in fact responsible for the
“accident” that killed her family. But Ever and Damen
don’t have to worry about Drina anymore. She’s gone for
good now, leaving them time to visit the beautiful other
dimensional world of Summerland, practice Ever’s new immortal
abilities, and perfect their romantic skills.

But just as they are ready to take the next step in their
relationship, Damen suddenly begins feeling sick and then cruelly
steps out of their relationship, turning his back on Ever. And
he’s not the only one; Ever’s friends, Haven and Miles,
snub her as well. In fact, the entire school is acting weird, and
it all starts when the new fellow, Roman, arrives. Roman seems
charming and everyone flocks to his side, but Ever doesn’t
trust him. Is it possible he is responsible for the strange
behavior?

Ever then learns of a chance to go back in time, to before her
family’s death. She misses them so much, but she can’t
leave Damen. Then again, since Damen doesn’t seem to want
anything to do with her anymore, maybe she should go
back… 

Alyson Noël has many talents to share as a writer, and she
proves it again and again with her amazing Immortals
series. She writes with an intensity and a passion, her words
weaving perfectly together to create an overwhelming experience for
the senses and the heart. The excitement factor is nonstop ---
exploring the Immortal’s special powers, keeping secrets and
thwarting evil. She answers a few questions raised in the first
book, EVERMORE, about Ever and Damen’s past, and even adds a
spark of humor with some of the side characters. One of the big
attractions to the series is the growing relationship between the
two protagonists, offering romance and heart-thumping chills.


Noël sets up the third book, scheduled for release in February
2010, with plenty of cliffhanging excitement.
