I hate to say, but I didn't like this book. The first one (Evermore: The Immortals by Alyson Noel) showed a lot of promise. It was a great concept (combining immortality and reincarnation), and introduced some solid teen issues for the characters to deal with.

This one, however, was just confusing and rushed. It could have been an excellent book - I enjoy Ms. Noel's writing style and I like the characters - but sadly this one falls short.

I am going to borrow the terminology from another reviewer on this site and say that the main character, Ever, is TSL (too stupid to live)! I mean come on! I realize she is in high school, but that does not mean she should act like a child and have the common sense of a toddler. I found her to be so pathetic during the whole book, that the ending of this story topped off to the whole: "dang, this book sucked" effect. The hard part is that this was the 2nd in the series, so if you like the first, naturally you want to read on as I thought I did. I know you will still read this installment if you enjoyed the first, and if you enjoy this one, then more power to you, if not, well, you were warned.

Blue Moon continues Alyson Noel's Immortals series shortly after Evermore left off -- with new Immortal, Ever, learning about her new gifts and her new eternal life under the guidance of her soul mate, Damen. She's enjoying finally being with Damen after 400 years and multiple star-crossed lifetimes, and is ready to finally take their relationship to the next level. (Yes, that level.)

Unfortunately for Ever (and perhaps fortunately for parents of younger fans of the series), the young couple has even more hurdles standing in the way of their togetherness. A strange new guy arrives at school and quickly draws the entire student body under his magnetic spell, but his attentions are set on Ever. At the same time, Damen begins to unexplicably weaken, losing his powers, his memories and even his basic personality in the process. To heal him and restore her life back to normal, Ever begins to explore her own special abilities. With the help of old friends and new, she must travel back to the Summerlands-- and maybe even turn back time.

I enjoyed this second novel in the Immortals series. Ever is sometimes frustrating, and makes a lot of impatient-teen-girl choices, but her actions are always in line with her character and personality. Damen was a little flat and underused in this story, and readers that loved the passionate, romantic tension of the couple in the first installment may miss that element in Blue Moon. But as a trade off, readers learn much more about Noel's world, including the mysteries of the Summerlands and its residents, Damen's past and the origins of the Immortals.

I think Blue Moon builds the Immortals story well, and doesn't suffer from much "sophomore series slump." However, I have to say, I wasn't wild about the big twist at the end. I'll be interested to get my hands on The Shadowlands so I can see how Ever and Damen overcome their newest hurdle.

Contrary to the other reviews I have read on PBS, this book was awesome! I thought it was much better than the 1st book, Evermore. I could not read fast enough! After reading Evermore, I thought it was OK but was in no hurry for the next book, but after reading Blue Moon, I can't wait for Shadowland.

Four stars! Well-written sequel to Evermore--I actually liked this one as much as the first. Lots of emotion going on. Although....the end did seemed abrupt and left a lot hanging, kind of like a "to be continued". The author's page count needs to be extended past 280! Blue Moon intruduced a few new characters that I think opens the door for more fun twists in Ever and Damen's story. Looking forward to Shadowland!

This is the sequel to Evermore which I loved so much I gave it one star. This sequel picks up where the last left off and tells the continuing saga of the newly immortal Ever and her immortal soul mate Damen as they struggle with teenage inanities and an evil nemesis.

I listened to this on audio and over two hours go by without anything of interest happening. There is plenty of bitchery and immaturity to go around, however, as we listen in on Ever and her small circle of self-involved friends as they natter on (and on) about inconsequential things. Eventually the book picks up when we, the reader, are invited on a shopping spree to Victorias Secret with Ever to watch her pick out the perfect pair of matching underthings that shes going to wear as Damen finally deflowers her (oh but will he?!). Im just kidding about the book picking up here but not about the VS trip unfortunately.

Most of the book is a snore fest but I had nothing better to do as I folded laundry, made dinner and then cleaned the kitty boxes. The narrator does a fine job of bringing these characters to life and I could clearly discern one from another. The problem lies in the fact that I didnt like any of the characters and that Ever grates on my last nerve. She is shallow, insecure, annoying, unkind in her thoughts toward others (Ava especially), a wee bit pathetic and very ugly on the inside. Its only towards the end of the story that I actually started to warm up to her and then she goes and does something so idiotic Im back at square one again. Sigh. But it allow the big question of Will they ever really do it? to be strung out for several more books. If my teen daughter smuggles this series into the house to read I am going to lecture her on never, ever acting like an Ever.

This one was better than the first one since it wasn't as much of a Twilight repeat. It was a little more unique. A new kid comes to school and when Ever and Damen make plans together. The new kid somehow seems to have a way to manipulate people. Ever desperately wants to know more about Damen's past, but he doesn't like the person he once was and would rather she not see that part of him. However, when something happens to Damen, Ever has to live as an immortal searching for answers and a way to get her life back and save Damen if possible. The story was a little odd at times, but it held together much better than the first one and continued the story as well. However the ending just makes you irritated (it's not bad, just annoying because it's a bit of a cliffhanger). There is language and talk about being sexual in this book.
