Dark Flame by Alyson Noël

*SPOILERS for the series so far*
Ever is dealing with the fall-out of her latest decision, saving the life of Haven and making her immortal.  Added to that is the effect of her last spell gone wrong, now she is bound to Roman instead of he to her and as she finds herself drawn to him in all the wrong ways.
"You're blond, blue-eyed, tall, fit, gifted, oh, and to top it all off, the sexiest guy on the planet just happens to be madly in love with you."  She sighs, wondering how I can possibly be so blind to her truth.  "I mean, let's face it, you've got the kind of life other people can only dream of - and yet, you make it look like the road to Suck City."  p.11 ARC

Amazing how little compassion Ever has for anybody despite the fact that she has effed up in about a million different ways.  I was so annoyed with her for three-fourths of the book because she is dumb as dumb.  But the ending was almost redeeming and I have hopes that the next book won't make me want to kill her like the last 2 books have.

On the positive side, Dark Flame moved along faster than Shadowland and there was finally a little action.  I liked Ever's changing character and I think she's taken a step in the right direction to getting a little brains in her head.  Good for her that Damen and even Jude are so freaking patient and nice.  I wish there would be a little more of Damen in the rest of the books.  He has barely appeared in the last couple of books.

  1. Ugh sorry to know the last two books Ever's been really ridiculous...

  2. LOL your review sounds like mine - LOL I have wanted to take her out into a field and shoot her! In the last two books, but this one has her turning a corner - I HOPE - so, you going to stick with the series and read the next one, I figure I have gotten this far, might as well go at least one more...and PRAY she really IS learning!

  3. @Book Crazy Jenn I figure the same way. I might as well finish the series up though it might take me a while.

  4. Well, I only read the first book in this series, and have the second on my shelf. Now I'm wondering if I should just skip ahead...I don't know if it should take a couple books for Ever to grow. Thanks for the review!

  5. @Lizzy - I'd say read them, but read them in a row so that you can move quickly on through the embarrassing stupidity that is Ever.
