Goodreads summary:

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…

Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.


I probably walked past this book about twenty times when ever I was in Asda shopping centre looking at the books while my mother was doing the shopping. I finally bought it when I had to pick two books from the store to have for my birthday off my grandparents. I didn’t know what to think of this book at first and I took me a while to actually get into it.

The Characterization: with Ever I did think that the character was well rounder and she was easy to relate to, but at times I did find her annoying in the way that she gets jealous of everything that involved Damen especially when it was to do with Darina. For all the secondary characters I wish there was more of a back story with them especially with Darina and Miles it would have been nice to have known a bit more about them.

I do have a compliant about the ending; there could have been more detail again with what happened with Darina but I’m not going to go into much detail about that. The ending just seemed a bit far fetch for my liking; I think that Alyson should have elaborated more on that part of the story.

The book was very entraining, the plot was good and I liked how the story unravelled bit by bit. The writing was excellent and when I did get into the book I just couldn’t put it down!
I can’t wait to read the next one in the series!

Plot 4/5
Character 3/5
Cover 5/5
Ending 3/5
