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 increase, Damen's begin to fade after he is 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, where she uncovers 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 decided 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 by the day...

Review: Ever is having fun learning about her powers (and making out with her boyfriend Damen) and hanging out with her friends, when everything starts to change. Damen is getting sick and not acting like himself. Everyone at school hates her and thinks she's a spaz and a freak - and now Damen does, too. Ever's trying to figure out what's going on and who is behind it. As Damen gets sicker and she finds out more about his past, she's given the option to make some changes. Does she go back and save her parents or do everything she can to figure out what has happened and save Damen in time?

I liked this book a lot better than the first one (Evermore). It went more in depth with the Immortals mythos and revealed why and how they came to be. Of course, not everyone is who they appear to be and no one's motives are pure. I think Ever shows great loyalty by trying get Damen better and figuring out what is wrong with him. I also think she shows quite a bit of naiveté by trusting people without investigating them first. I mean, she has the ability to read auras, minds, and learn anything about them by touch - why not use it to her advantage?

The Immortals Series: Evermore (1), Blue Moon (2), Shadowland (3), Dark Flame (4), Night Star (5), Everlasting (6)
