Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Saturday, July 24, 2010
Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning. In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day...

From Evermore, Blue Moon took a turn I never expected, in a good way. The atmosphere felt somewhat different (and I liked it.) There is more on Damen and Ever's previous lives and a focus on more paranormal elements such as Summerland a world between worlds, potions and Ever's development in the use of her 'powers'. My attention was grabbed right from the start and I felt there was never a dull moment in the book. The only annoyance I had was at the likeness sameness of the character's speech namely Riley, her sister and Haven, her friend ("Like, Seriously Ever", I never really could distinguish between these characters as they just get pissed at Ever).

Ever's choice towards the end of the book albeit stupid and thoughtless will definitely pan out in the next installment and provide for some interesting situations and speculation as to how things will be resolved.
