Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This opening book in a new series, The Immortals, will thrill many teen fantasy-suspense readers, especially fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. Seventeen-year-old Ever survived the car crash that killed her parents, younger sister, and their dog. Now she lives with an aunt in Southern California, plagued not only by survivor guilt but also by a new ability to hear the thoughts of all around her. She tries to tune out all these distractions by keeping her hoodie up and her iPod cranked loud, until Damen, the cute new boy at school, convinces her to come out of her shell. Damen, however, is frighteningly clever—and has the strange ability to produce tulips from nowhere and disappear himself at critical moments. Noël (Saving Zoë, 2007) 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. Grades 8-10. --Francisca Goldsmith

Review

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

By S. McKinney on November 13, 2010

Sometimes I wish I hadn't decided to become a teacher. I'm very glad to be the mother of two daughters, but the double-whammy of teacher/mother means that I feel like I need to read the books the kids are reading so that I'll be able to offer considered opinions.

With the Harry Potter series, it was all a delight. The Series of Unfortunate Events was clever satire and fun to read. Thankfully my students and my daughters were too old for Percy Jackson and the Olympians, but then I got stuck with the Twilight books and spent a lot of time wanting to eat my own head, they were so incredibly fundamentally awful.

And now I get to read them again! With different character names, to be sure. And in these Immortals books, we are now dealing with, well, immortal beings rather than vampires. But honestly? Everything else is exactly the same. Even the cover of the book is a blatant rip-off -- there's even a similar FONT STYLE.

In Evermore, we have a girl with an evocative name (I still haven't stopped rolling my eyes over "Bella Swan," and now I have to deal with "Ever" and I may never get my eyeballs back to where they should be and that was only, like, the FIRST PAGE.) The girl with the evocative name has to move across the country to live with an adult who is completely incompetent in the care of a teenager, but that's okay because the girl has no need of supervision. She is a woman of the world. Luckily for Ever, her weird lawyer auntie is rich, so Ever gets to drive a speedy little Miata instead of a rusty old truck AND she gets to live in a cool mansion in a gated Orange Beach community instead of in Charlie Swan's dumpy house in damp Forks, Washington. You should note that both vehicles are red, though.

A young girl moves halfway across the country to live with a well-meaning but somewhat distant relative. She's forced to go to school (even though she already knows everything) and to sit next to a mysterious, physically perfect boy who is the object of everyone's attention. Of course, he has eyes only for her. The girl eventually learns that this boy is more than what he seems: he's incredibly fast, he can read minds, and he's lived for a long, long time. This boy is not like other boys, and the girl knows it. She doesn't think she's worthy of his perfection, even though he doesn't seem to be bothered by her normalness. Eventually, one of the boy's own kind shows up to threaten the heroine, who somehow manages to survive, even though, logically, she shouldn't.

Sound familiar? It should. Evermore is basically Twilight, only much more poorly written, with a dash of "quantum physics", a pinch of a glossed-over theory of reincarnation, and a dollop of The Secret for good measure. When I saw that this book was recommended for fans of Stephenie Meyer, I assumed that it would be similar to Twilight. But I didn't think it would be an outright rip-off.

The stories are structured the same, so you can pretty much guess what's around every turn. There are no surprises. And the only time when some real suspense was attempted, it quickly became tiresome. Ever blames herself for the accident. Then she blames herself again... and again... and again. And we don't find out why until almost the very end. I found this tedious and frustrating. It really only needed to be mentioned once, especially if it was going to be dragged out for so long. Show, don't tell... Isn't that the rule?

The writing was also atrocious.

Wow. Not many Amazonians (is that the word?) seemed to have liked this book. Funny, because it has critics' praise coming out of its ears (my copy of Blue Moon that I bought with this one has 4+ pages of critical praise at its beginning, mostly for this book).

I agree with the reviewers who say it is very similar to Twilight: A girl moves across the country to live with a relative (Bella's father Charlie, Ever's Aunt Sabine) where she finds this guy who's different (Edward can't read Bella's mind, Ever can't see Damen's aura) and then they fall in love at first sight.

That's where the similarities end. Unlike Bella, Ever was the only survivor of a car accident that killed her parents and her little sister Riley after her father swirved out of the way of a deer. When Ever wakes up in the hospital, the nurse is all pink. She is seeing the nurse's aura; pink means love and compassion. When she begins to hear thoughts of others and get visits from her dead little sister Riley, she keeps it all under wraps.

Ever, she's not my favorite narrator I've ever read. Bella will always be at/near the bottom of the list. Damen, on my list of favorite male characters, sits somewhere in the middle. I liked him, but I've read better. But I've also read worse. Much worse (Edward!)

Plot line: Other than the whole Twilight stuff, I did like the immortals and the auras and psychic powers. Unique and creative.

All in all: I can't guarantee you'll like it. But I did.

Here is another book, where a guy who has lived for many lifetimes is interested in a teenager. ICK! It's like a 40-year-old chasing a 15-year-old. The ick-factor is through the roof. Just because a guy looks like a teenager doesn't make him one. If I had known that the boy was going to be an immortal, I would never have purchased the book. I am sure that teenage girls find it attractive to have an older man interested in them, but as an adult I think it is pretty sick that ADULTS are writing this type of story meant for teenage girls.

And since some of the other comments much more eloquently point out the fact that here is another supremely weak female heroine, I'll keep this part short. She has no spine, absolutely no self-respect. UGH. There are plenty of ways for a teenage heroine to have plenty of teenage angst without being a doormat.

THEN THERE IS THE ALCOHOL. Not that I am against it at all. In fact I enjoy it quite regularly, and I expect that a lot of teenagers do too. The problem comes when Ever who is not a regular boozer drinks the equivalent of several shots and still manages to drive to school without seeing double, or to hug her aunt without slurring her words or her aunt smelling a thing. I am so NOT a small girl, and I know what a few shots of liquor can do to me. I wonder if the author has ever had a sip. And then, when the affects are wearing off, she somehow managed to sneak a whole bottle of the stuff into her high school, maybe back in the author's day, but not now. Unless of course, Florida schools are just so good at overlooking that sort of thing. The sheer unbelievably and ridiculousness of this scene stopped me in my tracks. I can't bear to pick it up again.
