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.
This was an excellent book, hands down, and I can't wait to purchase the next book in the series, Blue Moon.
I could not imagine having to live in Ever's world, knowing everything about everyone - their thoughts, their past, their feelings. Ever is also in a deep amount of pain. Then, meeting Damen changes everything. It was pure joy/torture reading on and on trying to figure out what exactly Damen was. The book kept me hooked trying to unlock the secrets. I very much enjoyed reading this, and do recommend it. Riley, was an enjoyable character as well, and I won't say who or what she is, but she had a bit of mischievousness about her that made it fun.
On the downside, there were a few instances that reminded me of the Twilight Saga, but it wasn't enough to keep from enjoying the story. I'm still intrigued to find out what is going to happen with Ever and Damen. What can I say? I'm a sucker for love!
