Now is that day... and I'm thinking seriously of selling or just giving away the books.
I love the spirituality and the way the series introduces the reader to a totally different concept of life and after life and energies. Yeah, this fed my soul. Summer land, reincarnation, souls, visualisation, chakras, colours, the transformations of energies... oh my, this was delicious for that. If Noel ever writes a non-fiction on the subject of all this, I want to read it.
Move away from the awesome spirituality and look at the story and the characters and you can see how this world crumbles.
Ever is annoying. I can stand love sick, that's acceptable. But she is so stupid in everything she does. She knows not to trust *spoiler* Roman, but she just rolls over and does as he asks when the girl who has been helping her all along says not to. Um, I would've trusted the little girl, even if she was creepy. All Ever does is run around doing the most stupid and irrational shit. I really wanted her to grow a brain and be strong. This was insulting to the character and the reader.
The story itself feels forced. New guy at school mind fucks everyone to turn against Ever (including Damen), so they can bully her? And Damen grows weak and is close to leaving the land of the living for good but there's always time for school classes, trips back in time, and some light stalking? Blah. Come on ever, be strong and take charge and kick some ass!
For most of it, I skimmed the story. Which is a shame because I loved Evermore, the first book. Or maybe I loved it only back then and if I was to read it again now I would really not like it and want to turn back time and get those hours of reading back so I can read something different.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone unless they wanted a crash course in spirituality.
