Review: Shadowland by Alyson Noël
About~ Ever and Damen have traveled through countless past lives-and fought off the worlds darkest enemies-so they could be together forever. But just when their long-awaited destiny is finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon Damen…one that could destroy everything. Now a single touch their hands or a soft brush of their lips could mean sudden death-plunging Damen into Shadowland. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick-and gets help from an unexpected source-a surfer named Jude.
Although she and Jude have only just met, he feels startlingly familiar. Despite her fierce loyalty to Damen, Ever is drawn to Jude, a green-eyed golden boy with magical talents and a mysterious past. She’s always believed Damen to be her soul mate and one true love-and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger-and tests her love for Damen like never before…
My Review~ I love this series. No I really mean I LOVE this series. I read the first two books last year in October and while the first book had some trouble holding my interest, the second book was easily devoured, just like how I devoured Shadowland, the third book in the immortals series.
In Shadowland, I felt like the story deepens with all the magic-magick?-and how the love interest with Damen and Ever grows, but there love is put to the test when Jude comes into the picture.
The main character, Ever, still has the same personality like she has in the first two novels, except that I feel like her confidence in herself has grown more stronger then before, and I’m proud of her for that. I’m glad she no longer questions herself why Damen would choose her over Drina. I was glad also glad she’s not giving up on finding the antidote to the antidote for she can be able to touch, hold, and kiss Damen again. And as cute as Roman sounds, he acts like such as jackass, I just want to punch him in the face and make him shut that dirty mouth of his. I sooo dislike him for doing what he did to Damen and Ever at the end of Blue Moon and I dislike Roman even more for what he did to Haven at the end of Shadowland. The choice he makes Ever choose from is so heartbreaking; you can’t help but feel like punching Roman in the face even harder…
On another note, I love the cover to the book. It’s so beautiful and I love the amulet that Ever’s holding. I wish I had one just like it. All in all, this was a very great book, and I hate the fact that I did not read this book sooner. You would love this book and you should put it on the top of your reading pile, and if you haven’t started reading The Immortals series, you should read the books ASAP.
