Shadowland by Alyson Noël

Ever begins her quest to fix her mistake from Blue Moon so she can be with Damen at long last. But Roman stands her in way as well as her undeniable attraction to her new boss, Jude. 
But I just stand there instead, determined to keep it together.  Gazing at my ridiculously gorgeous boyfriend of the last four hundred years as though it's the first time we've met.  p.40
Oh Ever, still as dumb as a rock.  What a waste of an Immortal given her inability to make even a smitten of the right choice.  At least her intentions are good, but she never wants to listen to anyone.  Always convinced that she is the exception and knows more than the people who have been around a lot longer than her.  Damen is a freaking saint for putting up with her BS though he had his moments in Blue Moon.

Anyway, I found Shadowland to be a much slower book, not quite as good as its predecessors.  That happens a lot with middle books.  But still the build-up for the next book was nicely paced as was the introduction to Jude, a person who is very familiar to Ever and Damen for a good reason.  The ending was good, a little surprising, but another opportunity for Ever to make exactly wrong choice yet again.  Can't wait to see what she gets up to in Dark Flame

Hogwarts: History of Magic


  1. AHHH Ever...I hope you like Dark Flame, it's given me much promise for the rest of this series! :) Great review.

  2. Interesting...I had issues with the third in the Wicked Lovely series too. I hope I can make it past this one.

  3. Jenn - Yes, I was much more impressed with Ever by the end of Dark Flame.

    Amanda - Ever just makes me crazy, you know? But the next one is a better read.

  4. I still have to read this one and Dark Flame. I loved Evermore, but was slightly let down with Blue Moon.

  5. @Erica - I was let down by Blue Moon too. The choices, argh!

  6. LMAO we really did have the same thought "Ever is as dumb as a rock!" I don't think I've come across a character quite so stupid!
