Review: Dark Flame by Alyson Noël
Warning: If you have not yet read the first 3 books in the Immortals series, this book description will contain spoilers.
About~ Ever is trying to help Haven make the 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. But Ever’s struggle to keep the Immortals hidden only propels Haven closer to the enemy: Roman and his evil companions.
At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magick 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 then willing to take advantage of her weakened state…and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.
Frantic to break the spell before it’s too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, ricking everything she knows and loves to save herself—and her future with Damen…

My Review~ As much as I loved the last 3 books in this series, the forth book, Dark Flame, left me highly disappointed. The issues that Ever is dealing with, just keeps dragging on and on and on…
I felt like Ever was a broken record, every time Ramon was near or in front of her. Non-stop of how she just craves for his touch, his lips, blah, blah, blah…
I just wanted to grab Ever by the shoulders, shake her, and tell her to snap the hell out of it. If I had a dime for every time Ever describes how much she longs for Roman’s touch, I think I would be rich. And every time Ever went to The Book of Shadows to try to fix the spell she cast, I wanted to smack her. I could continue, but I think you get my point.
I think this book could have been made better. The characters were still great except for one who really got on my nerve (cough*Ever*cough). I also wish there was more of Haven in the book. I kept wondering how she’s coping with becoming an Immortal and if she really will get revenge on Ever for what she thinks she did to Roman at the end of the novel.
Speaking of what happen to Roman at the end of the novel, I am really mad at Jude. I can’t believe he killed Roman when Ever was thisclose to getting the antidote to the antidote. And since the very last chapter did not tell me much of anything that might happen next, I felt like we were left with a big cliffhanger. Add this book to your TBR pile, but not on top. Even though this book did kind of disappoint me, I’m still dying to read Night Star, which is the 5th and final book to The Immortals series.
