I had mixed emotions about this book. The first half I was very frustrated because I saw a lot of similarities between Evermore and Twilight. I even began writing down a list of things that were nearly identical. However toward the end when she began to explain things it got much more unique and interesting. I didn't like the 'Mean Girls' trifecta with the goth girl and the gay guy as the best friends. Her writing I found to be very choppy in style. Then the intimacy she tried to project between Damen and Ever seemed forced. So did the effect he seemed to have on her. A large number of scenes she created had no strong point in advancing the story line. Sometimes they didn't have a point at all. She really seemed like a beginning writer, which confuses me since she has already written and published multiple books. I always give grace to the first book in a series (as long as it doesn't bore me- which this one didn't). The ending did leave me intrigued and I do look forward to reading Blue Moon in Aug 09. (Hoping the title is just a coincidence & not a backwards reflection of 'New Moon'). OH- one more thing I just remembered. The conclusion of a certain climactic scene was lame and poorly explained. Sorry to tear the book to shreds, I guess it just rubbed me the wrong way.

Evermore is very much similar to Twilight. Twilight fans should read this though the plot may be a bit different. Funny how I started reading it...I picked it up at walmart and just sat there reading it. Anyway, this is a really good book. Finished it in 2 days (:

I decided to read this one b/c everyone kept comparing it to Twilight, which is one of my fave books. However, I totally failed to see it. Ever, the main character, saw peoples auras & talked to her dead sisters ghost. Bella, from Twilight, had no "abilities". Damen is not a vampire, like Edward from Twilight, but an "immortal" that is not really a vampire (its explained in the book). IMO it was not the same and this booked lacked the very elements that made Twilight so good. The two books dont even compare! It was an OK book. Glad I waited to get it here. No big hurry to read the next one. I agree with others that it was fairly predictable & the characters lacked depth. I was disappointed.

I purchased this book because I did not want to wait for the 100+ people before me. Boy did I wish I waited. The premise of the book drew me and the first few chapters were well written and then it flat lined the book became dull and predictable. The supporting characters were flat and one dimensional the annoying little sister, the troubled attention starving friend and the gay guy were all cliché. Even the main characters were not complex. The story premise was good but the plot got lost and I feel like the book was trying to hard to fit in the vampire romance genre instead of following its own path. Overall this book was disappointing and I am mad that I wasted good money on it. The only redeeming fact is that at least I can trade it quickly and get a better book.

I loved this book, about a girl named Ever who's family all gets killed, Ever can still see and talk to her sister. She meets boy, falls hard for him(he's got secrets). Ok don't want to give away the plot but I could'nt put it down.

Ok so when I first started this book I was thinking sounds like another twilight look alike but I am glad I continued on it does not go where you think it is going and it is a new twist. I enjoyed reading this book it was well written and very comforting the way the story flowed. I've got book two coming because I can't imagine where it goes from the end but I will soon find out. If you like young adult novels I think you will find this enjoyable.

I really disliked this novel. It was slow paced, boring, and has the same plot as every other YA romance. I actually hated the main character. I just couldn't. The ONLY reason I finished the novel was because it's a friends favorite. I just can't with this book.

Ever has found herself psychic, able to see and converse with her dead sister, and an outcast all because of a horrific car accident that killed her family and left her behind. She tries hard to block out all of the thoughts of other people by hiding in sweatshirts and plugging her ears up with the loudest music she can find. She manages to have two friends at school, but as a new kid shows up she finds herself faced with more and more troubles. First, the new kid is super hot and he seems to be completely interested in her. Second, that new boy seems to be a player that has a beautiful girl following him around. Third, that beautiful girl seems to be stealing one of her best friends. Things become stranger when Ever begins to date the new boy, Damen, who disappears often and Ever's friend ends up getting a tattoo that looks like it moves. What is going on? Ever begins to find out more about Damen then she bargained for and needs to save her best friend, but from who? Who does Ever need to give up and who should she keep?
I wasn't completely impressed with this story. It took me about two days to read. I think the part that I didn't like about the story was that I never felt like I understood the characters. I would have liked to get to know Ever, her group of friends, and even her enemies a bit more. Other than Ever's background about why she has her "gifts", what makes her tick? How did she end up becoming friends/enemies with the people who are around her? I felt like I wasn't involved in the story as much as I would have liked to. I wonder slightly if the book was made shorter than it should have been. I would like to explore more and have more descriptions. I like to see everything rather than just be told. It just seemed so rushed.
