Area Info

Ever is trying to help Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and acting recklessly, she poses the ultimate threat—exposing their secret world to the outside. As Ever struggles to keep the Immortals hidden, it only propels Haven closer to the enemy—Roman and his evil companions.
At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magick to free Damen from Roman’s power. But when her spell backfires, it binds her to the one guy who’s hell-bent on her destruction. Now there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can’t stop thinking about Roman—and longing for his touch. As she struggles to resist the fiery attraction threatening to consume her, Roman is more than willing to take advantage of her weakened state…and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.
Frantic to break the spell before its too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, risking everything she knows and loves to save herself—and her future with Damen …

Rogue Chronicles Entry No. 42

In this next episode of Ever's disastours drama of an immortal life, it's getting worse yet again. She's so hectic and doesn't think things thought, it's irritating. She just not developing, so it seems. Plus, the scenes became very repetative. Intentional, it should've been worse every time, but in my opinion the steps made weren't big enough. It was just annoying.

And, of course, there's no real development on the positive front. Except for the end, that kinda totally threw the mindset of the whole book out the window. Not that it wasn't nice, it was, a little surprising too, but... it didn't make up for everything previous. Liked the ending, very much so, and that's probably the reason this got three stars at all. It definitvely made a good twist, but it also felt a little... well, like Noël wanted to get rid of Roman as a character, and that's never a good thing.

I liked to have Jude more in appaerence than Damen, because Jude made for some action and fresh air while Damen just... he never changes his pattern, he's getting pretty boring. Ever doesn't seem to notice, since they're one and the same personality on that front, but I'm definitvely staying Team Jude. Not that I believe he could actually survive eternity with her, would probably bore to death after a while, but he's most surely the better guy and the more interesting character.

Overall, it was a lot of rolling my eyes, but the ending brought this one home safely and made me interested in picking up the next book. Yep, I haven't given up getting through this yet. Gonna have to see the end to it; go me!
