Evermore by Alyson Noel

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-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…

Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

Overall, Evermore was a good book. The main character, Ever and her two best friends Miles and Haven were very believable. Although I thought it was very similar to Twilight, without even trying to hide it, it still had a unique plot. Instead of vampires, there are "immortals" that live forever with cool powers like being clarvoyant and seeing peoples auras. I really liked the idea of "Summerland" and I so wish I could go there. However, I did not like Riley, it kind of seemed like her back story on why she wasn't with her parents was a las minute thing that was almost forgotten. While reading this book I was entranced the whole time and I seriously never wanted to put it down! I even brought it to school and read it instead of studying for my AP chem exam, that's how addicted I was to this book. If your into the fantasy and vampire type genres this book is definitely for you. At just over 300 pages it manages to capture the characters and there personality beautifully and delivers an exciting and romance filled plot from page one. I definitely reccomend this book!

My Rating: 4.5
