Book Review: Evermore by Alyson Noel

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.

What i thought: The characters, writing style, and storyline are a tad similar to those in Stephenie Meyer's, L.J. Smith's, and Melissa Marr's books, but written with a fasinating twist and voice that entirely remove the doubt of remake. After closing the cover, you, as i do, will want your own Damen, even if it means changing all that you have ever known.

Ever's character is so realistic that i could hardly doubt anything she said, even when discussing things as UNrealistic as Immortals. Her voice also flowed nicely with the dialoge, and it truly sounded as if a teenager was speaking, rather than an adult author. Also, Damen had a perfectly mysterious and dark air to him, which i really love. . . mmm. Tall, dark, and handsome. Why not? What could POSSIBLY go wrong?

A fantastic novel for all teens, and possibly even a few adults. Laugh out loud funny and thoroughly suspensefull, Noel creates an entirely other world within the one we know and love. This haunting story will have you looking down alley ways and examining the new boy with undeniable curiousity. Ever tells her story in a convincing voice, and one you are not likely to forget. An amazing book that will have readers eagerly awaiting those following it.

Also, i just love this cover. . . Because we all know that we judge books by their covers. (By the way, they are TULIPS not ROSES.) The purple backround with (my guess) Ever holding the red tulips (meaning undying love! Sorry. i had to say it) is just so eye-popping. I just love the two colors together, so long as they stay on paper (purple and red in any other circumstance. . . i shudder to think of it. lol) And the red of the tulips seriously stands out, but not in an annoying bright way, but in a way that is eye-grabbing and mysterious. Really, who wouldnt want to pick this up and read the back?

I once went to a meeting where people read people auras it was fascinating. Here in the US we have a program that I love to watch called "Ghost Hunters" In one a medium whose house they were investigating read one of the ghost hunters. And with a thermal camera you actauly saw the colurs move from one to the other with the reading. Fascinating.. Sounds a good read
