Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's entire life story by touch. Going out of her way to avoid human contact and suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen.
Damen Auguste is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He's the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head—wielding a magic so intense, it's as though he can see straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she's left with more questions than answers. She has no idea just who he really is—or what he is. The only thing she knows to be true is she's falling deeply and helplessly in love with him.
Once you pick this book up you will refuse to put it down. It is addictive and it hooked me right from the very beginning! This was something new and fantastic for me to read and I am quite sad that I did not buy it the first time I saw it up on the books shelves. Instead I waited so long. Oh well on the up side at least now most of the series is out and I can read them continuously...and then wait from the last book in the Immortals series. I loved how Alyson Noel was able to create a book which has characters that were based her on earth, in a non-fictional area, but then still have another world; Summerland where the characters could escape to. I love how she writes about character that seem realistic and beautiful and it shows just how amazingly well Alyson Noel can write as she shows us characters that seem real and really come alive. These characters had me intertwined in this wonderfully dark but yet light world of theirs and I did not want to stop being immersed in this story. I love how this was almost a quick read for me because it was so easy to read and the words flowed beautifully on the pages and in my mind. The story will grip you right from the beginning through to the end. There is not one dull moment or a moment that I thought was just okay, the book was perfectly weaved and to me it was almost perfect. It really is a captivating read that will leave you breathless.
