Review: Blue Moon, The Immortals, by Alyson Noel

This is the second book in the series and things seem to be looking up for Ever.

Damen is back in her life (and there to stay for the rest of eternity), Haven is no longer attending numerous anonymous addiction groups per week as she is in a stable relationship and Miles has got the lead role in the school musical 'Hairspray'.

But just as she is settling down to a life without visits from her dead sister Riley and trying not to grieve over the loss of her family, a new boy appears on the scene. And if it weren't for her immortal powers, she would get along with him just as well as everyone else.

Then again, she isn't like everyone else.

She only puts off questioning the strangeness of Roman however because even her immortal soul mate Damen doesn't suspect anything. He seems to like him. In fact, he is pretty much ignoring her whenever Roman's around.

But her instincts lead her to another theory when Roman gives Miles some salve to put on a nasty zit a few days before the premier of the school musical. For those of you who have read the first book, it appears to be the same type of salve that nearly killed Haven after Damens ex Drina gave it to her for her infected snake tattoo.

If that isn't enough to get your skin crawling, things suddenly go from bad to worse when Damen starts sweating, having head-aches and  becomes extremely ill.

Which is weird, because immortals don't get ill.

If you took my advice and read the first of the series, then this tale will be even more gripping than the prequel. Summerland seems like paradise and the description in the book is simply amazing, but as the saying goes...

There is always trouble in Paradise.
