Review: Dark Flame

Dark Flame
Alyson Noel
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Release Date: June 22, 2010
rating 7/10

At the start of this mesmerizing new installment of the Immortals series, Ever is helping her friend Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and carelessly putting them all at risk, their friendship becomes more and more strained. At the same time, Ever delves deeper into magick in order to get control over her enemy Roman and free Damen from his power. But when the spell she casts on Roman backfires, she’s bound to her deadliest enemy. Frantic to reverse the spell the moment the moon enters a new phase, she finds her efforts are fruitless—there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, one that propels her toward Roman. Desperate to break free of this terrible curse before Damen or the twins can discover what she’s done, she turns to Jude and delves deeper and deeper into dark magick, ultimately risking everything she knows and loves—including Damen.

Why did I even read this one? I have no idea. I'm not too happy with the series. I liked the first one, honestly I did, but I hated the second and third. And all because of stupid, stupid Ever. Okay, maybe not all because of her, but she does really annoy me. The plot and other characters have something to do with my disliking the series, too.

So why did I continue reading a series I don't like? I don't know. Maybe it's because I want to know if Ever and Damon ever get it on (I mean really, how long can that go on?). But seriously, I just want the series to end so I can figure out what actually happens.

On to the review of Dark Flame...
I'm actually glad I pick it up. I enjoyed it a little more than the last one (but not by much). Ever wasn't as stupid(thought she does have her moments) and I actually didn't want to break her neck every second. I know, I was shocked, too!

By the way, the whole Jude thing... getting on my nerves. It's supposed to be a love triangle, but does anyone believe that she's ever actually going to choose him Damon? Maybe Noel will put a twist in the future but I'm not seeing it.

So, if you haven't given up on this series by now, I guess you can keep going to see if the rest are any better. This one has given me hope! Just hang in there with me and we'll get through this!
