Blurb: Haven still blames Ever for the death of her boyfriend Roman, no matter how hard Ever’s tried to convince her it was an accident. Now she’s determined to take Ever down... and destroy Damen and Jude along the way. Her first step is to tear Ever and Damen apart — and she has just the ammunition to do it.
Hidden in one of Ever’s past lives is a terrible secret about Damen — a secret that illuminates new facts about her relationship with Jude, but that’s so dark and brutal it might be enough to drive her and Damen apart once and for all. As Ever faces her greatest fears about the guy she wants to spend eternity with, she’s thrust into a deadly clash with Haven that could destroy them all.
Now it’ll take everything she’s got — and bring out powers she never knew she had — to face down her most formidable enemy. But in order to win, she must first ask herself: Is her own survival worth dooming Haven to an eternity of darkness in the Shadowland? And will learning the truth about Damen’s past hold the key to their future?

Right here, we can make a long story very short:
Haven's threat was very real. She got hooked on the elixir, really terrifying. As counter measures, Ever trained to defeat her, and helped Jude do the same, although it was clear he wouldn't stand a real chance.
While that is still vage and in the air, Ever distances herself from Damen after watching him delete some cruel scenes from her past lives, wanting to keep them secret. So she wonders what else he'd hide from her. But that's very fitting because Damen has to stay with Stacey, who's now the hated freak of the school after Haven has turned everyone around.
Being uncertain about Damen, Ever feels herself more drawn to Jude again. She wonders if he's actually meant for her, and if it was Damen who just shows up and takes her for himself in every life. Catching them in a close moment, Haven seriously injures Jude and kills Ever. However, Jude is saved by the twins, who bring him into Summerland, successfully regaining their magic; and Ever sees all her previous lives flash before her, and realizes 1000% bullet proof that Damen is indeed her soul mate, so she's no longer second guessing anything, thus overcoming her weakness and saving herself from Forever in Shadowland.
In a second encounter with Haven, Ever is left with no choice but to kill her one time best friend, because she's treathening to kill Jude. Although he's okay with Ever chosing the shirt, with the strain of the antidote on it, over his life, because he only wants her happy, but of course she wouldn't. However, in the fight, the shirt ends up in flames.
But now Ever and Damen are an item again, yet there's one more problem to solve (they still can't touch), and another threat lurking: the darkness that Ever discovered in Summerland seems to be spreading, and she believes it's her fault. Damen is reluctant to let her near it, but an old woman's song is intended for Ever, for sure, and if she can save Sommerland, it might just reward her with the antidote.
