Book Review (77).

Blue Moon (The Immortals #2)

Publication: 7th July 2009

Pages: 289
Genre: Fantasy
Age Appropriate: Young Adult
**Warning Contains Spoilers From The First Book**
     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...
My Thoughts.
After absolutely loving the first book in this series I was more than eager to start this second book to see where the story leads and I liked it, not as much as the first book but the storyline was different and we're introduced to some new characters, some good and some not so good.
What I loved most about the first book was the relationship between Ever and Damen and since he was under a spell that left him with pretty much no memory of Ever he thought she was stalking him instead, so I didn't love it like I did the first, take away that relationship and you have Ever sulking around because not only is her boyfriend not having anything to do with her but thanks to the new kid in school Roman even her best friends Miles and Haven are hanging out with the cool kids after Roman put a spell on them too.
And then Roman spends his time trying to come onto Ever, now that Damen is no longer around.
We get a look into Damen's and Ever's pasts and how they met in each one and while Ever is in Summerland (the in-between) she meets thirteen year old twin girls Romy and Rayne who befriended Riley (Ever's dead sister) before she crossed over and Ever is unsure whether to trust them or not which culminates at the end when to save Damen she has to decide whether to trust either Roman or Rayne and the decision she makes affects the following books in the series.
Ever is also betrayed by somebody she thought was a friend and because of her betrayal Damen nearly dies.
I also missed Riley in this book I realise that she's now passed over but I liked the interaction between her and Ever.
But the end was a bit of a shock I can't wait to see how the storyline develops to solve the problem and I want more Ever and Damen time.
Now I'm off to see how the next book goes.
I give this 4/5.
