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 the Immortals series

Sorry, I just had to say it. I loved Evermore, enjoyed Blue Moon, and then this series just went downhill for me. In Everlasting we finally have the completely predictable finale to the Immortals series. First, let me point out that the entire premise of the book is centred around Ever and Damen finding the antidote to Ever's poisonous DNA so that they can finally have sex. Don't believe me? It's even in the summary!
"..and experience the passionate night they've been longing for"
Ugh, so terrible.
So Ever and Damen embark on a journey, inspired by the ramblings of a seemingly crazy old lady that they find in Summerland. Here's what did not make sense to me:
Lotus (crazy old lady), is desperate for Ever to embark on her destiny's journey, as it will lead to her soul's redemption. Instead of putting it in layman's terms, so that Ever understands why its so important that she embarks on this journey, Lotus chooses to be mysterious and vague, which only adds to Damen's argument that she's just senile. We could have saved several chapters of Ever exclaiming that she feels "deep down" that Lotus is speaking the truth and Damen arguing that Ever is just unwilling to move on and be happy had Lotus just been a little clearer from the start. If this is something that she wants so desperately, why is she being so elusive about everything?
Lotus explicitly states that this journey is Ever's, and Ever's alone. She is the ONLY person who can embark on this journey. Then she lets Jude go with Ever. The Damen shows up and its now a 3-person journey. And then Lotus shows up and says that their paths are entwined, but that each has their own journey to follow. WTF?Read more ›
The first chapter was just wow. I knew once I started "glancing" at the book that I was in deep trouble. The first chapter has a very strong beginning, the reader sees Ever and Damen struggling in Summerland to find answers. What I like about this is the pacing and the plot line. The pacing was right on. I really liked that the reader got to go back to certain points in their history and re-connect with the present. It answers a whole lot of questions that I have always wondered, plus then some. It gave the reader a much broader history on Ever and Damen's relationship.
What also grabbed my attention in this book, is the lives they had in the past. Through out the series, we see several past lives, but this one, it was a SHOCKER! I was like,"OMG!" Gasping at my desk and looking by my office door to make sure no one heard me. Hehe. Ms. Noel did a fine job in bringing this element to life in the book. I felt every emotion, excitement, hurt, and anger while reading this. Simply fantastic!
The characters were more developed. In this book, you finally see them learn and grow. At times through out the series like books 4/5, I got frustrated that they weren't going anywhere. They were being stagnate. I was hoping for a change. Everlasting is the change of all changes.Read more ›
This book is so much better than Dark Flame which I thought was awful and the reason why I didn't even bother to buy book #5, but I had to read the end of the story and I'm glad I did.
In my opinion this Series would had been so much better with only 4 books instead of 6. Giving us poor, slow books in the middle.
In the meantime, Ever and Damen do find solace in visiting Summerland, the blissful dimension that lies between earth and the next life. There they can view parts of their past lives and remember the good times they've had. But lately they've noticed something strange about Summerland, a gloomy corner filled with rain and mud. It's there that they meet the ancient woman named Lotus, who will propose the chance to change their lives forever.
Lotus offers Ever an opportunity to see into a part of her past life that she hasn't known about --- her first life, and her initial encounter with Damen and Jude. But it's the first step in a grueling journey of tests to fix and reset their karma. Completion of this journey will lead to the purest form of immortal life: her soul's immortal life. But it will also mean giving up certain benefits, and Damen isn't so sure he wants to surrender those. If Ever can't convince Damen to join her, she may lose him forever.
Ever and Damen's journey has been an awesome treat, so fans may greet this final book in the series with bittersweet enthusiasm.Read more ›
