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 on Evermore

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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
