Really didn't like this book here's why:,
This review is from: Evermore: 1 (The Immortals) (Paperback)
I bought this book because I do like paranormal fantasy things such as Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Sookie Stackhouse novels (what True Blood is based on), etc, but this book utterly failed in its endeavor to be anything like them because it is clear Noel is trying to be too much like them, especially Twilight. I'm not saying Twilight doesn't have its flaws, it does, it definitely does, but it was better written and more believeable than this.
First problem I had, and it's the main one the relationship between Damen and Ever is unrealistic, and not very romantic, it lacks connection, spark, any real emotion. That is the thing, this book is marketed at young adults, who are just growing to the idea of love, romance, boys, girls etc, and books like this set up unrealistic ideas about it. It's like, love shouldn't be like this at all, (and I understand there's a paranormal element in them, but taking that away) the connection isn't there at all.
Ever is utterly unlikeable,as are most of the other characters and the ending is just like WHAT?! Seriously? I put it down and thought, never again, not picking up another of her books again. The disappointing thing was had she tried to be original, and actually develop the relationship between the two of them, it would have been really good.
