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
“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

One major complaint: I loathe when authors wait until the final pages before explaining the plot and then dump it all on the reader in long, tedious dialogue that seems unrealistic based on all of the secrecy up to that point. I much prefer when they sprinkle in the back-story as the story moves along. And Ms. Noel does just that, waiting until the last quarter of the book to relay the plot in a series of long-winded, contrived narratives that simply don't make a whole lot of sense.
Other than that, it was an alright read. Not the best in paranormal romance, but certainly not the worst. For something better try: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh; Ghost & the Goth by Stacey Kade; Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender. All of which are, hands down, better written and more cohesive, with more fleshed out characters and better designed plots. I intend to go on to book two as I'm interested to see where this goes but I'm not sure this series will have legs. We'll see.
The parts I did like about this book were her physic abilities; her entertaining ghost of sister Riley and her flamboyant best fried Miles. Her "gift" or "curse" kept the book interesting and later added to the plot. Another point of interest was her boyfriend Damen. He was charming, extremely good-looking and overly mysterious. He isn't my favorite leading male but he gets the job done.
My dislikes about the book are the confusing plot and gaps in the story (it never went into detail about her or Damen's past), her selfish easily impressed gothic friend, and Ever's constant bipolar behavior. One second she was blissful and happy and the next she is grumpy and ignoring people. By the end of the book I was slightly wishing Ever would cross that bridge with her sister and never return. However, she redeemed herself when she was finally able to stop whining and let herself be happy.
This book had a lot of good points but overall it is worthy of nothing more than a three-star rating. I hope that Blue Moon will fill in some of the gaps and elaborate more on her past lives and current abilities as an immortal.
But the last 25% of the book absolutely ruined the entire novel. Suddenly Damen could do anything, and so could Ever. And the way they did it was insulting. Suddenly there's quantum physics involved and you're essentially God. Maybe it's just a pet peeve of mine, I hate when characters God-mode. But they lived merely because they wanted to, things popped out of nowhere, you just had to wish it to appear. The villian broke the number one rule and actually started monologuing. Really. She did.
And I still don't understand why there was no furniture in his house. The guy has to sleep, or maybe he doesn't. I don't know, it really wasn't discussed. But does he not eat? Why not? I get that the drink is vital, but he ate once. Food still tastes good, even if it has no benefit.
Oh, and don't even get me started on how they managed to get the villian. Chakras, really? Really? I would understand if maybe you had discussed chakras anywhere in the book, but it came out of nowhere. And it was a messy description, I wasn't even sure what happened until the characters started talking about it, then I had to go back and reread it and I still did not understand.
I really did enjoy the beginning, I would have given this four stars on the first 3/4ths. However, the ending completely ruined any hope of a decent book and I just could not overcome it.
