Rating: 3 stars
From Goodreads: “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 – wieling a magis 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.”
If you can get through the horrendous first half of the book, Evermore does get better. Reading this book made me look at the cover a few times to make sure I was reading Evermore and not Fallen by Lauren Kate. Other than the change in plot somewhat, its basically the same. Girl goes to new school after horrendous accident, girl meets incredibly, unbelievably hot guy who seems to be both obsessed with her and annoyed with her.
She can’t believe her luck, falls madly deeply in love with them, and finds out they’ve known each other over many different lifetimes, all with her dying before the love is consummated in some form. Oh, and don’t forget…the boy lives eternally, having to love and lose the same girl over and over again.
I adored the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. One would assume that I’d adore this series as well, however, I don’t find it as well-written as Fallen was. It never grabbed me and held on. So….disappointment ensued, as well as many questions that were never really answered. Will the second book provide the answers? I don’t know…am I interested enough to read the second book to find out? Probably not.
