Book Review: The Immortal Series

The Immortal Series by Alyson Noel

Okay, so maybe I got lazy with uploading and reviewing each book of the series. Well, you’re right, but it’s also because I kind of forgot some things from some books so I’ll just do it here.

Before you start Evermore, let’s play a game. Every time you read the words “tingle and heat,” I want you to drink a short. Throughout the whole series.

So, Ever had – yeah, had – a normal life until she meets this guy named Damen. Yeah, Damen was sexy, gorgeous, hot, but Ever didn’t seem to want him at first, mostly because her friend, Haven, called dibs on him. Ever and Damen drew closer and closer. Ever then realized how Damen looked very familiar to her. With Damen’s help, she discovered what she is and what her past was. Yea, she’s immortal. Dina then appears and tried to fight for Damen, but is soon killed by Ever.

In Blue Moon, this guy named Roman comes along. At first, he was just an ordinary new guy. Then, out of the blue, Damen gets sick – which is a huge problem because immortals don’t get sick. Damen then starts to lose his memory of Ever. Not just him, but the entire school is brainwashed. She talked to Ava for help. And so, they went to Summerland. Summerland is a dimension between dimension. You’ll get it when you read it. Anyway, Romy and Rayne, twins that found Ever in Summerland, help her find her way to the Hall of Records. She then figures out the culprit behind the brainwashing: Roman, the immortal. She tries to get the antidote, but, seeming to desperate, followed Roman instead of the twins, ending in a tragic cliffhanger.

Okay, so let’s get to the chase. So, Roman refuses to give the antidote. Damen and Ever travel to Summerland to search for an antidote to reverse Damen’s poison. Instead of the cure, they found out about their existence. Damen is trying to save them from the Shadowland, Ever then turns to magick in hopes of breaking Damen’s spell. Along the way, she meets Jude, a familiar guy that will give her second thoughts about Damen. Spoiler: Roman feeds Haven immortal drink, turning Haven into an immortal.

So, in Dark Flame, Ever teaches Haven how to live as an immortal – keeping secrets, protection, immortal drinks – while trying to have control over Romanso that she could have the antidote. Yea, they still don’t have the antidote. Seemingly frustrated, she casts a spell, but then backfires, binding her to Roman. Ever then approaches Jude and dark magick in hopes of reversing the spell and to be free of the cursing, risking everything and everyone she loves, including Damen.

In Night Star, they still don’t get the antidote. I got frustrated too, don’t worry. Anyway. Haven still blames Ever for Roman’s death – Yeah, Jude accidentally kills him in Dark Flame, just when Roman is about to give in. So, Haven wants to, hm, how do I say this… she wants to kill Ever. Yea. And she wants to destroy her through Damen and Jude. So firstly, she wants Damen and Ever separated. So, two best friends fight. In the end, Haven kills Ever, but Ever doesn’t die. Amazing, right? Now, this is actually my least favorite book because it’s just like, Haven trying to make Ever unhappy and then after a few pages, the couple kept finding the antidote again and blah, blah, blah.

In the final book, Everlasting, they finally, FINALLY, find the antidote. Well, not exactly. So, she actually finds out about the Tree of Life, and she took journey alone. There were obstacles, many of them, but that didn’t stop her. So when she gets a fruit from the tree, she brings them. Eating is had consequences, but for anything to stop the curse of Damen, they ate it. So, eating the fruit would mean that you will have eternal happiness, but it will take away your immortality. Okay, so maybe I got tired of Damen complaining and how he’s so obsessed with Ever, but then he still agrees. This actually my favorite book because I thought that there would be a happy ending forever. But then, Noel gave Ever a choice: immortality or human? I mean, yea, I would want to be forever young, but who would want to reincarnate into another century, feeling the same pain, meeting the same people, all over again? I like how Noel removed their immortality because even if they die mortally, their still gonna experience pain in other centuries. Like, do you get my point? No one wants pain. Especially if you get hurt over the same thing, over, and over again.

So, I recommend this book to teenagers due to explicit scenes. Now, some people got sick of this book because wow, they took a long time to find the antidote. And there’s so much, tingle and heat, tingle and heat, and I swear, if I ever feel that, I’ll break up with him. And wow, do I hate Damen’s obsession with Ever.

So yea, I hope you guys find this interesting and stuff.

That’s what true love is. It cannot be broken, it cannot be chipped away, it’s eternal, everlasting, and it can weather any storm. -Alyson Noel, Dark Flame
