Description

Don't miss Evermore, the first book in Alyson Noël's #1 New York Times bestselling The Immortals series. Enter an enchanting new world where true love never dies. . .

After a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people's auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone's entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school--but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head--wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is--or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.

Review quote

"Evermore is addictive. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about how I could sneak away to read some more. I couldn't put it down. I dreamt abuot this book. And when I was finished, I couldn't get it out of my head. This book was simply breathtaking." --Teens Read Too

"Teen angst and the paranormal make a combustible mix as Noel utilizes typical themes and gives them a dangerous and eerie twist. Getting hooked on this new series, The Immortals, is guaranteed." --4 stars! Romantic Times Magazine

"Readers who enjoy the works of PC Cast and Stephenie Meyer will love this outstanding paranormal teen-lit thriller." --Midwest Book Review

"Get ready for a wild ride that is filled with twisting paths and mystery, love and fantasy. . . The writing style, story, and characters are a bit like Meyer and Marr's popular books, but written with a new twist and voice. And after reading the book, you too will probably want your own Damen, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice." --5/5 stars! The Book Queen

"I found myself unwilling to put the book down, even though I had to at some points, because I wanted to know what was going to happen...Ever was so real and her emotions were so believable that it was a little creepy. It's like Alyson Noël is actually a grieving, lovestruck teenager. She got Ever completely perfect. And by perfect, I mean delightfully flawed and deep." --The Frenetic Reader

"Evermore is a wonderful book that I believe would be a lovely addition to any library . . .Definitely a book that fans of Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Marr should add to their collections. Definitely engaging and will catch your attention the minute you open to the first page!" --Mind of a Bibliophile

"Alyson Noel creates a great picture of each and every character in the book. I am a fan of the Twlight series and I recommend this book to those who like the series as well. It is a very quick read, with all the interesting twist and turns." --Flamingnet Book Reviews

"I loved this book. It really keeps your attention though out the story, because the puzzle gets pieced together bit by bit, but you don't know exactly what happened until the end. The only thing that disappoints me is that the second book won't be published for a while. I would definitely recommend this to my friends." --Portsmouth Teen Book Review

"This is the first installment of The Immortals series. Ms. Noël pens a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them. Evermore has a familiar theme that attracts readers, but inside this book you'll find that the author has added some unique details that sets it apart." --Darque Reviews

"Evermore's suspense, eerie mystery, and strange magic were interestingly entertaining...I found Ever to be a character I could really respect...Recommended." --The Bookworm

"Beautiful main characters, tense budding romance, a dark secret, mysterious immortals--what more could you ask from this modern gothic romance?" --Justine Magazine

"Evermore was a great way to lighten my reading load this winter and provided me with a creative, magical story that I really enjoyed. This is the first in a series for Noel and I think she may have a hit on her hands . . . Evermore has good and evil, likable characters, vivid descriptions and a good story." --Planet Books

"I fell into it easily, and loved the world Noel created . . . The fact that Ever had psychic powers was truly interesting. They flowed neatly through the book and I felt Ever's pain . .trust me, this book was really good. I couldn't put it down. Alyson Noel created an amazing new world, and after this book I am so curious to see where it heads because honestly, I have no idea." --Reading Keeps You Sane

"Ever is an easy character to like. I really felt for her because of all she lost and what she struggled with daily...Evermore was a really fast, engaging read with some great characters. It is the first in a series, so I'm eager to see if we will learn more about Ever, Damen and friends in the next one...it's sure to be a great read." --Ninja reviews

"The writing here is clear, the story well-defined and narrator Ever has an engaging voice that teens should enjoy." --January Magazine

"Alyson Noël created a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them. Evermore has a familiar theme that attracts readers, but inside this book you'll find that the author has added some unique details that sets it apart and will surprise you." --The Ravenous Reader

Our customer reviews

Also reviewed on my blog, The Vintage Bookworm (www.vintagebookworm.blogspot.com) Gosh, I forgot how good this book was! The first time I read it, it was back in 2009 when it first came out! I never continued to the sequel because I got caught up with other books, but I decided to re-read it so I can catch up on this series! I'm glad I did, I got sucked in just like I remember doing when I first read it. A lot of people like to compare it to Twilight, which really gets on my nerves because it is NOTHING like Twilight. I don't understand how people see it that way. I love Twilight, I really do. It's one of my favorite series, but Evermore is so much better. It has a very unique plot line, which I love. The writing sucks you in. Noel definitely knows how to write. She has that tone to her writing where you fly through pages without realizing because it just flows so nicely together and as an aspiring writer I really admire it. And the characters were unique and alive. From the outside, they seem like your stereotypical characters, but once you get to know them they have their own personalities that makes you pull away from it. I like most of the characters, except the popular crowd. They annoyed me. As per usual. But Ever was definitely a great character, though she did annoy me at times. But hey, being annoyed by her those few times really makes her that much more real. Also, I love her name! And I also love Damen, naturally. He's really weird at first, and kind of creepy, but oh so hot! And Haven and Miles, I'd love to be friends with them. They are so weird, and I love it. Though Haven definitely annoys me with her weird latch-ons to new friends like Drina. Ugh! Overall, I enjoyed re-reading this book and I can say that I will most likely re-read it in the future sometime. This book is unique and has a lot of great things in it. A psychic main character, a hot mysterious love interest, mystery, and awesome friends!show more

This is a re-read and review. I first read Evermore a while back. It had already been out for a while but even though I was absolutely in love with the cover, I never allowed myself to pick it up. Finally, I gave in and bought it. And I fell in love instantly. There's pretty much nothing I dislike about this series. There's a real life element to it, it's not completely thrown into a fantasy world, and I tend to lean more towards books that have a real world element to them among magic and mayhem. This book definitely delivered. I love the paranormal aspect and the fact that you can't quite figure out exactly what's going on. Throughout the book, you obviously fall in love with Ever and lust after Damen, but you can't really figure out if Damen is a good guy, or a bad guy. If he's a good guy, why does he do bad things? If he's a bad guy, what is his real motive? There are so many things that happen in the book with the story line as well as the characters that you definitely don't get until you've already read further ahead and then go back and re-read. A lot of stuff makes a heck of a lot of sense after you know what's going on. I love books like this and I felt like the characters were very well developed. My only complaint about Evermore is that the situation with Drina could have played a larger part in the novel. It seems she only becomes a big part when she and Ever have it out. You know there's something going on there because of the oddness of her actions and Haven going so crazy about her. But you never really know that she plays such a big part until the very end of the book. I wish a few more hints had been dropped or the underlying story line could have played a larger role.show more

Since the accident that killed her family, Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's life story just by touch. She also has regular conversations with her dead sister. She didn't ask for these new talents and her efforts to hide her gifts have left her a freak at her high school. But when Damen Auguste enters the picture, everything changes. Damen is movie-star gorgeous, mysterious, and the one person who can block all the psychic energy Ever keeps trying to avoid. Damen and Ever are drawn to each other, but Ever can't shake the feeling that there is something that he's hiding. He's the only person that Ever can't read anything about. Damen has no aura, Ever can't hear his thoughts, and she has know idea who - or what - he really is. Every once in awhile, a book comes along that I end up getting sucked into and become addicted. EVERMORE was one of those books. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about how I could sneak away to read some more. I couldn't put it down. I dreamt about this book. When I finished, I couldn't get it out of my head. This book was simply breathtaking. Ever is a wonderfully realistic character that grows throughout the novel. The guilt she feels over her family's accident and her grieving process are heart-wrenchingly real, as is her growing acceptance of her new psychic gifts. I also loved the scenes with Riley, Ever's little sister. Who knew a ghost could be so funny and charming? I know she's just waiting to have her own series written about her. And Damen...well, what can I say - I'm in love. If you're looking for a new lit-boy crush, Damen is it. Alyson Noel knows how to write for and about teens, and this is one of her best books yet. I can't wait to find out more about the mysterious Damen and step into Ever's world again. Combining mystery and romance, EVERMORE is the beginning of the next must-read paranormal series. Be sure to get your hands on this one - you'll be swept away. *Gold Star Award Winner!show more

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school-but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste... Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she's thinking-and he's the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn't know who he really is-or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.show more

Evermore is the first novel of a new very interesting series, fans of Twilight, Vampire Academy and such won't be disapdointed with that novel! The cover attracted me at the book store, and even though I had never heard about the book I just had to buy it and let me tell you it was worth every single penny. Ever is definitely not your teen-next-door, she's got psychic power she'd rather not have: she can see aura's, read thoughts and.. see ghosts. In fact she sees one ghost: her little sister. Her sister is one cute little thing who adds a touch of lightness to the story. Everything gets mysterious when Damen "to new guy" shows up at her high school, the guy is smoky-sexy, secretive and he can silence the world for her. Most of the book their relationship is like a roller coaster, full of ups and downs and you have no idea if they will end up together or not. Most importantly we have no idea what Damen is, one thing is sure that guy isn't normal either. I really enjoyed it! The story was different from the Vampire boost in popularity (not that I mind vampires, my all time favorite series is about them) , it's very refreshing. Second book release tomorrow and I'll sure review about it when I get the chance =)show more
