Ever is trying to help Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and acting recklessly, she poses the ultimate threat—exposing their secret world to the outside. As Ever struggles to keep the Immortals hidden, it only propels Haven closer to the enemy—Roman and his evil companions

At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magic to free Damen from Roman’s power. But when her spell backfires, it binds her to the one guy who’s hell-bent on her destruction. Now there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can’t stop thinking about Roman—and longing for his touch. As she struggles to resist the fiery attraction threatening to consume her, Roman is more than willing to take advantage of her weakened state…and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.

Frantic to break the spell before its too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, risking everything she knows and loves to save herself—and her future with Damen …

My Thoughts:

It took me forever to actually read this one. I just kept reading and then stopping because I just couldn’t get into it and then I finally sat down and read it and have to say I’m disappointed. I wanted to finally see some improvement from the previous book but if anything it left me even more confused and wondering how Ever and Damien were going to have their happy ever after. It just didn’t have any plot advancements. We are left in the same place that Damien and Ever were from the beginning. Now we have Haven. The recently turned immortal in this story. It just seems like immortality is more of a curse than a gift in both cases. While Ever is trying to manage Haven she also has to deal with Roman who she accidently bound to. I just don’t know. I loved Evermore, Blue moon and even Shadowland but this one is a little harder to love. Anyway I give this book 3 out of 5 paws.

  1. I honestly don't know if I can with this series anymore. Ever is just so dumb and willingly to make all the wrong choices because of course *she* knows better. Sorry endrant.
