This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
In Alyson Noël’s most darkly seductive Immortals novel yet, Ever fights for control of her body, her soul — and the timeless true love she’s been chasing for centuries.
Ever is trying to help Haven make the 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. But Ever’s struggle to keep the Immortals hidden 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..
A lot of stuff happens in this book. I’m not a fan of any of the plot developments that’s going on though. Ever takes some seriously poor decisions! Decisions that makes you shake your head, and you just know that things are about to go wrong!
The book series focuses too much on what they can’t do rather then what the can. It’s filled with so much negative energy. It’s difficult to see a happy ending at this point. Many of the things that happened in this fourth book is messed up. It almost feels misplaces! Overall, I’m very disappointed with the process of the plot. The bigger things seem to be overshadowed, overlooked and frankly, rushed. Things that didn’t matter and we’ve heard a million times, such as how Ever misses Damon’s touch and kiss, the author spends an endless amount of pages and time on.
The level of excitement I felt for the first book has totally dropped to zero. It was really well done but I’m afraid the series lost it spark it’s pretty much just a love triangle and an endless repetition of the same stuff. Maybe you should have stopped whilst it was still good. I’m sorry my dear, but you are up for elimination!
The story had some great potential but the execution just wasn’t on par!
