This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Ever and Damen have gone through countless lives and fought off the world’s darkest enemies so they could be together. But just when an everlasting future is finally within their reach, Damen is struck down by a curse—a dark spell separating him and Ever for eternity. Now sharing so much as a single touch could bring about Damen’s death…and send him plummeting into the Shadowland, an eternal abyss for lost souls. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses her herself in magick. And in her quest, she gets help from an unexpected source…a surfer named Jude.
Although she and Jude have only just met, he feels startlingly familiar. Despite her fierce loyalty to Damen, Ever is drawn to Jude, a green-eyed golden boy with magical talents and a mysterious past. She’s always believed Damen to be her soulmate and one true love—and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them from the darkness inhabiting his soul, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before
Again, we start where the second left off. I had hoped that this one would turn out to be greater than the second was, and that Blue Moon was only suffering from the second book curse but I was greatly disappointed. Nothing seemed to be happening it was almost as if we were at a standstill. It was boring and felt like a waste of time to read. When things finally started happening it seemed like we’d just been served with useless information that had absolutely nothing to do with the plot itself.
The love section of this story is getting on my nerves, after three books we know how Ever is feeling but she constantly has to remind us readers. She talks the talk, but frankly, she isn’t walking the walk. She goes on and on about how happy she is about her friends, but she doesn’t give a rat’s ass about them. The only concern Ever has, is for herself and Damon. It seems like she’s getting dumber and dumber as the series progresses I’m literally terrified how she’s going to be in the last book.
We had some new crewmembers joining us in this book. However, I barely got to know them! It seemed like they were just planted in the story but not important enough for us readers to get to know them. I hope we get a shit load of answers from the next book and that this was only used as an introduction.
Easy to read and I’m sure that teens will love the epic love that surrounds Ever and Damon.
