Does anyone else have an issue with Blue Moon ending??? All I can think about it the tv show dark angel and how the book and the tv show are so much alike. Am I crazy or is anyone else bothered by this?

Definitely. I felt that Ever was annoying and frustrating. I just found it unbelievable.

Unbelievable? Is YA paranormal really supposed to be 'believable?' I doubt that....

I haven't read Blue Moon, but Colleen, I do think that there can be a believability issue in paranormals.  Does the outcome make sense based on what has already been established about the world and the characters?  If you were reading a vampire story that established that vampires couldn't reproduce and then one fathered a child (such as in Twilight) there is a believability issue (no matter what the author says otherwise).  If a character does something that doesn't fit her personality without any development along the way, there is a believability issue.

Yes, I suppose you have a point. But Blue Moon is not one that has a believability issue.

I understand that Blue Moon was a fantasy but what Ever did was so odd.
I can't explain it without spoilers though :(

SO SPOILERS BELOW:

so there's the villian which Ever figures out. then there are these twins girls who said that they're trying to help Ever and told her not to trust the evil dude. The said evil dude tries to convince Ever that he's the one trying to help her and that the twin are the true "evil" ones. Ever, suprisingly, believes the guy. So of course she gets in deep trouble cause of that >.>

END SPOILERS.

Well I think that the twins were kind of wierd and never really explained themselves.  Had they trusted her sooner she might have trusted them in the end.  She mad a really bad choice which she is the one paying for.  Which if you look at life is exactly how it works.  Kids make bad decisions based on not following there instincts and end up paying a great price for it.  Thats the way the world works out.  I found it very believable that she did what she did.  She was confused the only friend she though she had ran off and left her Damien for dead, so she made what she thought was the best choice to save his life.  Turns out she was wrong, but thats ususally how life works.  I think it was very believable that she made a rash decision in a short amount of time to save the boy she loved, thats what people do.
