    Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen's are waning. In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen's tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her.

    Overall

    I was a little offset by "Evermore" and thought the ending was just a bit odd. Not only did enjoy the 2nd book more, but it made the 1st book more complete! It is a separate 'story', so obvious that it is a separate book rather than all one together. I like the 1st book MORE now that I've read this 2nd one. and in all justification, the 1st had me curious enough to pick up the 2nd. I do almost all Audiobooks, and I also like the reader for this series. She embodies the main character very well. Very romantic without being SAPPY and a lot in interesting adventures & twists! Now EAGER for the 3rd book out next month!!!!

    At the start of this breathtaking novel, Ever's beloved Damen has been poisoned. If she gets too close to him, it will activate the poison and bring about a swift and painful death. To break the curse, Ever travels to Summerland and immerses herself in magick - and receives help from a new friend. Although she and Jude have only just met, Ever is mysteriously drawn to him, for he feels startlingly familiar.

    Tricia says: "Just get it over with already"
    "Enjoyed it and waiting for the next book..."
    Overall

    Enjoyed all of these books and looking forward to the next. The 1st one was a bit tedious to get through, but once entrenched in the story it becomes more enjoyable and more addicting. Not a 5-star, but worth the read if you seek a decent series.

    Others I enjoyed are: Shifters (by Rachel Vincent), Need/Captivate (Carrie Jones), Sue Grafton (Kinsey series) and Jeanne C.Stein (Anna Strong.

    "Being the first female werecat enforcer isn’t easy. Scars accumulate, but I’m stronger in so many ways. As for my personal life? It’s complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother’s death and my father’s impeachment, it’s all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe."

    Jeanette says: "Fantastic"
    "Yet another AWESOME read!"
    Overall

    I continue to enjoy this series, reviewed all others and this one was no different....I eagerly anticipate the 6th book (and sadly the last) coming in Oct. 2010!

    Again, also, the reader remains the same (I like that consistency in a good series) and she has taken on the true personality of the heroine extremely well. A great 'listen' and a great 'read'!

    While waiting for #6, I thoroughly enjoyed the "Anna Strong" series by Jeanne Stein, as well as Carrie Jones' "Need" & "Captivate". All wonderful as I come-down from the 'high' of Twilight and Harry Potter!

    Zara White suspects there's a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She's also obsessed with phobias. And it's true, she hasn't exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane . . . but Zara's pretty sure her mom just can't deal with her right now.

    Parajunkee says: "Taken by surprise...in a good way."
    "Loved this book, needed the 2nd though...."
    Overall

    I enjoyed these 2 books immensely, yet feel almost "left in the cold" a bit waiting for the next one!

    While Twilight and Harry have left me searching endlessly for good series, I have tried a few and this would be one I add to the list of "get the next one asap".

    I will say that 'Need' felt a bit incomplete at the end, and reading the 2nd book ('Captivate') helped to resolve some of the storyline.....yet the 2nd leaves another entire story laying in wait! I will pounce when the 3rd book arrives!

    I like both the writing and the narration. I thought all was tastefully done and the reader was well-chosen. I thought at first that the accent (southern) was a bit overdone, a little "too much" on some of the words, but it grows on you and becomes less important as you begin to enjoy the story line AND as you move to book 2 it becomes almost un-noticeable.

    Innocent romance with no 'sex' and tastefully done by the author (kissing is about the extent of the involvement).

    If you like this one, 2 others to look into are: the Shifter's series by Rachel Vincent and the Anna Strong series by Jeanne Stein.

    All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim. Kronos's army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan's power only grows. While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it's up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

    Anandasubramanian says: "Jesse Berstein IS Percy Jackson"
    "Excellent reading!"
    Overall

    For anyone searching for a new story with lots of excitement and danger, this is it! LOVED every single one and hope there might be another!! Also, very PG/PG-13 in the romance category, nothing bigger than a first kiss, and very charming!

    Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, 16-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school - but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

    FanB14 says: "Not Bad"
    "Good, odd ending...."
    Overall

    This was a good book until about the last 4 or 5 chapters. It was interesting, and had a mild romance, and about the time I thought things would get REALLY interesting, it just took a downturn. I am still a little interested in 'what comes next' for Ever & her adventures to come.....just not sure I liked the 1st book to go for the 2nd. The ending was a little weird, and while I like the unexpected - it fell a little short of my expectations.

    "I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds. Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked."

    Alexis says: "Loved it!"
    "Fantastic read!"
    Overall

    I absolutely LOVE the entire Werecat Series. Rachel Vincent has created a seducing world that 'lies just beneath the surface' of our real one. It is believable, inventive, full of intrigue, and consistently exciting. I have been placing her 'scheduled release' dates in my calendar so I have the next book as soon as it arrives! Faith is a likeable & rebellious character with honorable morals and her story, life, and relationships are ALL interesting! Can't wait for the next book in March of 2010! *There are sex scenes - not frequent or overly prolific (more romantic in nature) but still detailed & I recommend the reader be at least 18.

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    Teddy says: "2 Stars because it actually gets worse...."
    "Pretty good!"
    Overall

    I enjoyed all of the Mortal Instruments books, while some parts do seem to be a bit over-explained (thoughts of the characters get very detailed & occasionally stray a bit), it is an enjoyable series. I found myself wanting the 4th book......but it looks like I will have to read the 'prequel' coming soon! I read these as I saw the author of TWILIGHT reads Cassandra's books, and that was intriguing enough (as I am always searching for new GOOD content to listen to!). Worth the listen!
