Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Here's a quick bit from Ms. Noel's gorgeous site:  Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever's powers are increasing, Damen's are fading—stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.

Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen's past—the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden—but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day...

This is the second book in the Immortals series.  The first book had me ditching out of work to finish it.  This one I read in one sitting on a Saturday.  These are books that I can really lose myself in.  I equate it to reading a People magazine instead of Time.  Ya' know what I mean.  I don't know if the first person, present tense writing draws me in, but I can become absorbed in them easily.

Ever is with Damen and things are initally going well.  Then the fly in the ointment arrives (kind of a disgusting phrase isn't it).  Things go from bad to pretty horrible.  I'm beginning to wonder if this girl...oops almost gave something away there.  Needless to say, I'm now hooked on the series, and will of course keep reading.  The cover of this one, while good, I don't think is great.  But I'll give this book 4 roses.

  1. I love the cover. I have the first book in the series on my wish list, so I hope I can get to that soon. I know what you mean by books that are read in one sitting. I've had those moments of absorption.


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are regarding my posts! ~Thanks
