Review: Everlasting

Everlasting (The Immortals, #6)
Alyson Noel
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Release Date: June 7, 2011

Everlasting is the sixth and final installment of the epic love story that has enchanted readers across the world. Ever and Damen have spent centuries facing down bitter rivals, jealous friends and their own worst fears-all in the hope of being together forever. Now in Everlasting, their destiny is finally within reach. 

Will they be united-or torn apart forever? Readers will finally discover the truth in this anxiously awaited conclusion!

I'm not going to lie, I"m glad this series is over. I stuck with it, and I'm not really sure why. It's like a bad car wreck; you can't stop watching.

But, getting past that, I'm happy with the ending. it wasn't totally unpredictable.

It had the same problems as past books in the series.  Characters. Too much drama. It was just one problem after the other in the book.

Ever still bothered the crap out of me. But, not as much as in past books. I still thought a lot could have been avoided if she just listened to Damen, but I actually saw a point to her decisions in this. For once.

I actually enjoyed seeing Ever and Damen's past. A part that we haven't seen or heard of before.

Honestly, I felt that a lot of this book (and series) could have been avoided, or at least summarized.

All in all, a good wrap up to an 'eh' series. 

Here's to happy endings!

  1. Love your review, totally know what you mean about the bad car crash. I was like that with the house of night series, but it eventually got too bad even for my curiosity. I couldn't get past the second book in this series so I am in awe that you stuck with it!
