Praise for Blue Moon

“Alyson Noel surpassed all my expectations.  Not only is Blue Moon an amazing sequel; it sets the bar for the rest of this series very, very high!  When I reached the last page of this one, all I could say was ‘wow!’”—Teens Read Too

“It is the mark of a daring writer to defy expectations and Alyson Noel does that to the power of ten in Blue Moon.” I guarantee you will have no idea what’s coming in the second book of the series while Alyson Noel surprises you with a big, fat twist and leaves you wanting more, more, more.” --The Book Chick

“A mesmerizing tale of teenage angst, love and sacrifice with plenty of crossover appeal…The startling but satisfying ending shows that Noël knows how to keep her audience hooked. Ever's supernatural struggles are a captivating metaphor for teenage fears about love, relationships and growing up.” –Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Blue Moon was incredible. If you thought Evermore was full of suspense and unknowns, just wait until you read Blue Moon. Noel surpassed all expectations…The plot was insane, and I mean that in a good way. Noel took this novel in a direction I was never expecting, resulting in an emotional roller coaster ride that I never wanted to end. It was so cleverly pieced, so intricately meshed, I never saw it coming. Fabulous.” –The Story Siren

 

“One of the best books I've read this year… With immortal lovers, trustworthy friends, betraying fortune tellers, and freaky identical twins, what more could you ask for? Blue Moon has me begging for Shadowland!  I can't wait for the next in the series.” –The YA Book Blogger

 

"The Immortals Series is so unique; it’s like a breath of fresh air…Noel knows how to pull you into her world with beautiful imagery and mesmerizing words. Blue Moon is a page turner that will keep you reading until the last page. Just when you think you have the plot figured out, Alyson throws in another twist making it impossible to put this book down.” –5 stars! Fantastic Book Reviews

 

“This heart-pounding sequel to Evermore is a must read!” --Mind Of A Bibliophile

Praise for Evermore

 "Teen angst and the paranormal make a combustible mix…Getting hooked on this new series, The Immortals, is guaranteed."--4 stars!  Romantic Times Magazine

Evermore will thrill many teen fantasy-suspense readers, especially fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series … Noël creates a cast of recognizably diverse teens in a realistic high-school setting, along with just the right tension to make Ever’s discovery of her own immortality—should she choose it—exciting and credible.”  --Booklist

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

“When I got a copy of Evermore, I sat down to read it, intending to only read a chapter or two. Instead, I blazed through the first hundred pages before I knew it…and then I didn’t want to put the book down. Except I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer. So I picked it up the next morning and finished it. Now I can’t wait till July for the second book to see what happens next.” –Blog Critics Magazine

“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

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

"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 Noël 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

 “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 Noël 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 Noël 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 Noël 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

"This young adult novel ponders immortal love and the knowledge that "revenge weakens and love strengthens." Fans of the Twilight series should love it."- Orange Coast Magazine

Noel writes an emotional, thoughtful book that made me cry in a couple of places.  Evermore was an easy novel to get sucked into, and I wanted to get back to it as soon as possible.  If you love Stephanie Meyer, you will LOVE this book.” –Night Owl Romance

Evermore is a fresh and original work that…branches out and explores new ground.  Definitely recommended.” –Cool Moms Rule!

“I totally LOVE Alyson Noël’s Evermore…Noël has delivered a deliciously fresh new series that will be the next new thing that has every teen and even adults everywhere hooked and waiting for more…This is a keeper and a book that you have to go out and buy right now because if you don’t you will be missing out.  People will be asking if you have been living under a rock if you don’t give Evermore a try, and that is just not acceptable.” –Talk About My Favorite Authors

I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either. When I was finished reading the book I was left feeling empty handed. I felt that there could have been more romance or positives in Ever and Damen's relationship in this book since it took so much in the last book (not to mention the past six hundred years) for them to get where they are. But no this just went right back to the same struggles of them being torn apart and so on.... it also had so much going on at the end that it kind of built up to not much at all... I started skimming through the pages at the end just trying to get through it to get to the point, and then when I got there I felt disappointed to find the end result.
All and all if you enjoyed Evermore then I do suggest you read Blue Moon, however I do hope that the Author allows Ever and Damen to progress a little more in their current relationship in the next book instead of spending the entire book with them just trying to find a way to be together without actually allowing them be together at all... If that happens again I think I will become bored of the cycle and give up on the series?? But as of now I'm still a fan.

Format: Paperback
I read Evermore about three weeks ago and was very excited when I learned Blue Moon, the sequel, was being released in early July of 2009. I liked Evermore, despite the obvious plot-related similarities it shared w/ Meyer's Twilight series. However, when compared to Twilight, I think it falls short of the Twilight standard. Having said that, Noel's Immortals series still has a lot of potential, so I am holding out hope that Shadowland's plot will surpass my mediocre expectations.

I gave Evermore 3.5 stars, but unfortunately, can only give Blue Moon 3 stars, awarding it simply because I found Noel's writing style very good.

Having noted the author's obvious talent, I feel this sequel left much to be desired in regard to the overall plot. Here's what I felt was missing:

The storyline was very short-sighted. Two-thirds of the book revolved around one major event - and the "problematic" event became very dull and blase after a while. I found myself speed reading just to finish the book, not really paying much attention to the minimal details, but more so trying to get to the underlying point of it all. Noel writes very well for the most part, but I felt too many sentences began with "And..." which became quite redundant.

Also, Ever's character was under-developed and important details surrounding her psychic abilities left the reader wondering how she managed to do a variety of things. On a handful of other occasions, Ever's thoughts just pop out, without warning, which was odd since the book is written from her perspective (It was written in first-person so the reader should have been privy to everything Ever was thinking). First-person writing is far more revealing - the reader is usually fully disclosed by the narrating character.

****Some Spoilers****

Well, I think I liked Blue Moon better than Evermore, and that's only marginally. I thought Evermore was too much of a Twilight wannabe and to me, that's not a book you want to emulate (well maybe the books sales and movie deal but that's it). So I was hesitant to get Blue Moon, and then when it started in on all the, "Oh Damen is so perfect..." or "Damen is so beautiful..." I nearly tossed the book out of the window. But then the middle started getting interesting. I liked the parts about manifestations and having the power to bring forth whatever you desire. I believe in that, though not to the extent of instant manifestation, but I think Noel had some pretty deep stuff in there. It made the plot solid and this quest Ever was on more believable.

However...

It seemed to fall short at the end. I felt like the twist with the cure and Ever's blood preventing them from touching at all, was only to ensure a third book. The series could have ended nicely with this book and have them consummate their love and be done with it. I can pretty much tell that the main conflict in book 3 will be finding a way for Ever and Damen to be together in the physical sense.

One of my pet peeves with this book was some of the writing. I didn't think it was as bad as some have said, but I wonder if Noel did a simple ctrl + F to look for all of her repeat phrases. The number one repeated phrase that got on my nerves was "I press my lips together." Ever is constantly doing this and it's SO over done that it stands out like a sore thumb. I noticed it in the first book and thought somehow she would catch it in this one, but alas...it did not happen.

So I'm giving this 2 stars mainly because I thought the beginning was a bit annoying with all the over the top love and gooiness, the middle was good, and the end fell flat. If Amazon allowed, then I'd give it 2 and a half stars.

I sit at the keyboard as I try to think of how to describe this book. Wishing that I could find the words to describe its awfulness. Knowing that there may not be any way to express just how bad it was.

Yes, I know those sentences are not grammatically correct. But guess what? That's what you'll get in Blue Moon, the first novel I've read that was written almost exclusively with sentence fragments. Where the author needed a comma, she continually put a period and then started a new "sentence"... but it wasn't really a full sentence. As a result of this nasty bit of writing on practically every page in the book, I found Blue Moon to be an excruciating read.

I didn't like Evermore, the first book in this series. But since I'd read so many gushing reviews for Blue Moon, I thought I'd give the author a second chance. She's not getting a third. Between the horrendous writing, the ridiculous (and inconsistent) representation of quantum physics and the Law of Attraction, the annoying characters (they're either over-the-top and unbelievable or flat and stereotypical), and the boring, unoriginal plot, I was ready to chuck this book across the room.

Thesaurus use was obvious (a word would appear twice within a couple of pages, and then never show up again), eyeballs performed tricks (the word the author was looking for was "gaze"... I still can't figure out how eyes rake or graze things), major plot points were ripped off (just off the top of my head I can think of Eclipse, True Blood, and Dark Angel), and now Ever's got another thing that she can beat herself up for (until we readers want to beat ourselves senseless) for the next three books.

It saddens me that this is what's popular... and not just because the story isn't that compelling.
