This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact to suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school — but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.
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 than 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.
Besides a few comments here and there, this is an excellent read. I don’t care about what other people say about this book, I think it’s good!
It’s easy to read and stays true to the YA genre; how they talk and interact with one another. However, I must say, this is strictly for girls! No boys aloud, hehe.
Ever isn’t exactly my favorite character ever to appear in fantasy series, there were bits and pieces along the way that frankly, annoyed me half to death. Things she said and did threw me off. When it comes to the supporting roles such as Miles and Haven I’m a bit torn. I liked the positive energy that seemed to follow Miles everywhere. In addition, Haven with her negative energy. It was a good match with the constant reminder of good and evil, which was a very important theme throughout the whole book.
The series contains of six books and I’m excited to reread and finish the series. I’ve read this book, Evermore like five times or something, and I’m still entertained.
I like how the book series diverges from the regular usage of fantasy creatures. This is new and unseen and with that comes a great deal of effort into making it believable and she’s done an amazing work.
The Plot is engaging. The writing was fantastic and really inviting and easy to imagine how it all looks and feels. See the book as an introduction really. Lots more to come. Riley even has four books dedicated to her if you liked her!
