Publisher's Summary

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.

As Damen pulls farther away, claiming it's the only way to keep them safe until they find a cure, her connection with Jude grows. And before long she discovers the reason for her feelings: she and Jude shared a complicated past in a previous life. She always thought Damen was her soulmate and her one true love...but now their love is about to be tested like never before.

Disappointing

I found this book sooo frustrating, it was a continuation from book two it yet still didn't wrap it up. It interduced so many new threads into the story and didn't answer even one of them by the end which ended very abruptly. Loved the first and second book but was very disappointed with this book. Praying the 4th book is better or Im done with this series.

Pass

I liked the first book more than most. The second book... well not so good- this one is a pass. I can't even finish it. There are holes in the plot that just make it unbearable. And there are going to be 5 of these!!

Just get it over with already

I listened to the first book in the series and thought "It's no Vampire Academy or Twilight" but it's worth a listen.

I made it onto the second book and was totally frustrated with the way it ended and knew I had to read the third to see any resolution.

Now however, I wish I had never read or listened to any of them. Such a waste of time.

It's like Noel is prolonging our agoney for more book sales by adding new characters and conflicts for the main characters.

Really, do we need new conflict and problems when you have no resolution to the first two books?

The series has reached the point where you will no doubt be irritated and upset by the end of the series. She has only left the possibility of a very terrible ending. You know where everything is summed up in five short minutes after you listened for 50 hours. Just get it over with already and stop wasting our time.

Disappointed

It was so long and drawn out. Tired of the lead character always getting it wrong. I mean we know life isn't perfect but within the whole story NOTHING ever went right, except in book one. Hope in the next 2 books that the book will speed up and have some happiness within. Hope that Ever finally gets something right.

Nope. Still a dumb girl.

Where to begin? I've listened to the series so far - and I just keep hoping this girl will wise up. But, nope.
The narrator, while far from the worst ones I've heard, doesn't have a very wide range for the characters. The guys and girls all sound the same. That's disappointing.
But, my main deal killer is how Ever just continues to make the dumbest choices. Repeatedly. As if she figures out which choice is the absolute worst, and then picks that one. I prefer a girl who is a little more intelligent, badass, and independent. A lot less idiotic. So, sadly, I'm giving up on this series.

Great Young Adult Series

The Immortals series is complicated and layered. It has everything a Young Adult series should have without getting overly angsty. And I emjoyed the narrator - she has a great voice for characters of this age.

Begin with book one in the series.

Still love the series

If you could sum up Shadowland in three words, what would they be?

Emtional, Enchanting and Entertaining

Who was your favorite character and why?

Don't have one

What does Katie Schorr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her way of bringing the characters to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Though I still love the series, I find myself getting really frustrated with Ever. I'm also not a fan of Haven.

Enjoyed it and waiting for the next book...

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.
