Evermore by Alyson Noel
Author: Alyson Noel
Stars: 3 1/2
Description: After a horrible accident claims the lives of her Auguste. family, sixteen year old Ever Bloom can see people's aura's, hear their thoughts, and know some one's entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school-but everything changes when she meets Damen. Damen is gorgeous, exotic, and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head-wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions then answers. And she has no idea just who he really is- or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is that she;s falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.
So, I really liked this book. For the story part. There was a whole bunch of stuff that I didn't agree with though. There was language, sexual things, violence, and alcohol. Other then that, this book is a lot like Twilight. But Twilight doesn't have any of those things, except an occasional "D" word and a little bit of violence. So if I was rating it on the story I would keep it at 3 1/2, but if I was rating it on how much bad stuff was in the book I would rate it at about a 1 1/2.
But if you get past all of those things, the story is very good. You'll be staying up late like I did to finish it.
Who is your favorite character? I don't really have a favorite character. But if I had to choose one, and get passed all the stupid things she did, it would have to be Ever.
What did you like about this book? I liked the story. The story was interesting but kind of hard to understand, that's why I read it twice.
What's your favorite part of this book? SPOILER ALERT!!! I do really like action scenes, so even though that the action scenes were a little bit to violent, I really did like the parts when Ever fought Drina.
Romance: There is a lot of kissing in this book. Even one part where they almost have sex, but it's not really descriptive which is the good thing. Another character is homosexual. Ever's little sister is a ghost so she can go anywhere and see anything without other people see her. There is also some talk of sex.
Violence: There are two scenes in the book where there is a lot of violence.
Drug Use: None.
Language: There is actually a lot of language in the book. There is about 3 "F" words, and almost everything below that.
Alcohol: In a part of the book, Ever finds out that if she is drunk she doesn't hear all of the voices or see all of the auras. She actually gets expelled because she gets caught drinking in school.
Other: Ever can see ghosts, read people's minds, and some other stuff, too. There is another character that can see ghosts and read peoples mind.
Even though there was some things that I didn't agree with, I still thought it was a good book and I will be reading the rest of the series.
