“Evermore is addictive. When I wasn't reading, I was thinking about how I could sneak away to read some more. I couldn't put it down. I dreamt abuot this book. And when I was finished, I couldn't get it out of my head. This book was simply breathtaking.” ―Teens Read Too
“Teen angst and the paranormal make a combustible mix as Noel utilizes typical themes and gives them a dangerous and eerie twist. Getting hooked on this new series, The Immortals, is guaranteed.” ―4 stars! Romantic Times Magazine
“Readers who enjoy the works of PC Cast and Stephenie Meyer will love this outstanding paranormal teen-lit thriller.” ―Midwest Book Review
“Get ready for a wild ride that is filled with twisting paths and mystery, love and fantasy. . . The writing style, story, and characters are a bit like Meyer and Marr's popular books, but written with a new twist and voice. And after reading the book, you too will probably want your own Damen, even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.” ―5/5 stars! The Book Queen
“I found myself unwilling to put the book down, even though I had to at some points, because I wanted to know what was going to happen…Ever was so real and her emotions were so believable that it was a little creepy. It's like Alyson Noël is actually a grieving, lovestruck teenager. She got Ever completely perfect. And by perfect, I mean delightfully flawed and deep.” ―The Frenetic Reader
“Evermore is a wonderful book that I believe would be a lovely addition to any library . . .Definitely a book that fans of Stephenie Meyer and Melissa Marr should add to their collections. Definitely engaging and will catch your attention the minute you open to the first page!” ―Mind of a Bibliophile
“Alyson Noel creates a great picture of each and every character in the book. I am a fan of the Twlight series and I recommend this book to those who like the series as well. It is a very quick read, with all the interesting twist and turns.” ―Flamingnet Book Reviews
“I loved this book. It really keeps your attention though out the story, because the puzzle gets pieced together bit by bit, but you don't know exactly what happened until the end. The only thing that disappoints me is that the second book won't be published for a while. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.” ―Portsmouth Teen Book Review
“This is the first installment of The Immortals series. Ms. Noël pens a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them. Evermore has a familiar theme that attracts readers, but inside this book you'll find that the author has added some unique details that sets it apart.” ―Darque Reviews
“Evermore's suspense, eerie mystery, and strange magic were interestingly entertaining…I found Ever to be a character I could really respect…Recommended.” ―The Bookworm
“Beautiful main characters, tense budding romance, a dark secret, mysterious immortals―what more could you ask from this modern gothic romance?” ―Justine Magazine
“Evermore was a great way to lighten my reading load this winter and provided me with a creative, magical story that I really enjoyed. This is the first in a series for Noel and I think she may have a hit on her hands . . . Evermore has good and evil, likable characters, vivid descriptions and a good story.” ―Planet Books
“I fell into it easily, and loved the world Noel created . . . The fact that Ever had psychic powers was truly interesting. They flowed neatly through the book and I felt Ever's pain . .trust me, this book was really good. I couldn't put it down. Alyson Noel created an amazing new world, and after this book I am so curious to see where it heads because honestly, I have no idea.” ―Reading Keeps You Sane
“Ever is an easy character to like. I really felt for her because of all she lost and what she struggled with daily…Evermore was a really fast, engaging read with some great characters. It is the first in a series, so I'm eager to see if we will learn more about Ever, Damen and friends in the next one…it's sure to be a great read.” ―Ninja reviews
“The writing here is clear, the story well-defined and narrator Ever has an engaging voice that teens should enjoy.” ―January Magazine
“Alyson Noël created a well-detailed story that makes it easy for the reader to visualize both the characters and the world around them. Evermore has a familiar theme that attracts readers, but inside this book you'll find that the author has added some unique details that sets it apart and will surprise you.” ―The Ravenous Reader

It felt like the book was trying to be Twilight (another book of which I am not a fan) and the whole idea of the girl not being able to touch/be intimate with the guy - it just made me roll my eyes. The whole book is an eye-roller. You'll get tired of staring at the ceiling.
Was there even a plot? How the heck did the book spawn even MORE books? I sincerely hope they never make a movie out of it. I'll probably watch it if they do, but I guess I'm a glutton for punishment.
Just avoid this one altogether.
The plot was good, and interesting, and the paranormal aspect of it was also good to read. Perhaps it's just the way it was written, that just makes me turn inside out. The names for example. They sound very cliché (seriously, Ever???? and Haven??!?!?!?! wtf?!?!?!) and added more to the cheesiness to the book. Ever is not really that much likable. True, she's been through a lot and there are times where the tension between her and Damen was fun to read but I just didn't really like reading about her. Through the second half of the book she sounded so whiny and mopey it nearly become a chore to read.
Okay, so I'm going to give the book four stars even though it made me cringe. Why? it's like when you eat junk food. You know it's bad, but there's just something about it that it's good and you can't stop reading. (Yes, it's like the car accident scenario I mentioned earlier). I think if the cliche and cheesiness of the book is toned down in the next book then the series can potentially get much better than this. I couldn't help but continue reading this book. I liked the plot, and the pseudo vampire that is Damen (come on, seriously? he's got all the qualities of one) I had to admit he's rather charming to read. Before we go further, I'm one of the few that did NOT read Twilight, so I wouldn't know if this is the same (I've read past reviews of this book, and some are saying it's just like it) if it is...I guess I'll be prepared to cringe when I eventually come around to reading it...one day.
Would I recommend this? not really. Unless you want to cringe while reading but hey, maybe you like these kinds of things. By all means try it. Even if it might hurt. I'm hoping Blue Moon is better. (Yes, I'm going to read the second one. See what I mean? I can't turn away!)
I read this book in a day, it was a really quick read and I.... I don't want to say hated it but my feelings were close to that feeling.
The plot was similar to so many other YA books out there but again that's the unwritten rule for YA books. Their plots are similar so I am not complaining about that since I knew what I was getting into.
The characters were flat and unrealistic. The names were something I couldn't get past. I mean Heaven? Really? There are so many beautiful names out there and the author wanted Heaven? Oh, well she has the right to name her characters whatever she likes.
I didn't like Ever at all. She was spoiled and you would expect that the death of her family would change her, make her more approachable but it didn't.
Damen.... well I didn't feel that character. He is portrayed as the perfect guy with no flaws, physically and emotionally which makes him boring and dry. Nothing to make you like him.
The writing wasn't good either. I might have liked the book better if the writing was better. It has happened before but he writing gave me the impression that she was in a hurry to get this book out there to cach the "YA" fire that was going on form the Twilight books.
Her book was sloppy and quick. She didn't gave it the attention it deserved because the story line is very good but that can be shown only by good writing and this book din't have it.
Overall I didn't like it and I wish I hadn't bought the book. The book will probably end up as a giveaway to you guys.
