Book Review: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Because this is a sequel, it will most likely contain spoilers for the first novel, Evermore. The review for Evermore can be found here.

Title: Blue Moon
Author: Alyson Noel
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Release Date: July 7, 2009
Edition: Paperback (289 pages)
Cover Review: I love how there is always one main item on the cover that has to do with the novel. In this case, it's the field of flowers. Great symbolism.
Series: The Immortals, Book 2
Main Character: Ever Bloom


    Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him.  As Ever’s powers are increasing, Damen’s are fading—stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.

     Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen’s past—the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden—but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day...


Story: In the second book of the Immortals series, a new guy shows up at school. His name is Roman. Roman has taken the school by storm. Everyone likes him... except Ever. Damen ends up sick and starts  to stop hanging out with Ever. He starts falling for Ever's nemesis. She can't believe whats happening; Damen always said that he loved her.

Ever's other friends, Miles and Haven, stop hanging out with Ever as well. Everyone is all for Roman. It seems that everyone is acting strange except for herself. There's also something even stranger: None of this started until Roman showed up.

Characters: I felt bad for Ever in this book. She had no one to talk to at all. She was by herself, just guessing why this was happening to her. She didn't do anything to deserve this. I do like how she ended up visiting Summerland and met Romy and Rayne. While in Summerland, she found out more about Damen's past.

Damen annoyed me in this novel. I mean, I know he was kind of supposed to come off rude, but he just completely ignored Ever. It was really annoying.

Roman had some issues. *spoiler* Just because Ever killed your loved one, doesn't mean you have to go all psycho and kill hers too. She doesn't deserve to go through eternity by herself. She didn't even really choose to become immortal. Damen did. *spoiler done*

All in All: I liked this novel better than Evermore. I felt like this was a great sequel to the first novel. It was absolutely amazing. I wonder if the rest in this series will be able to top this!

  1. Great review! I love this series and Blue Moon was one of my favorites out of the series. Damon got a bit annoying in this book and I couldn't stand Roman. Hope you enjoy the rest of the series!
