Mini Review: Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

Blue Moon (The Immortals, #2)

Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever's powers are increasing, Damen's begin to fade after he is stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.
Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, where she uncovers not only the secrets of Damen's past - the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden - but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them - or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day....

If you've read the book, you know why there's not much to say about them. If you haven't read it, I won't spoil it for you, you'll have to see for yourself :)


Again, can't say much about that. Only, that I found it super-cute in the beginning and the lack of it in the middle endured TOO LONG!


Dragging. For my taste. I hoped for a bit more action, which I got, in the end. I just don't understand why Paranormal Romance always has to be so incredibly slow. We never learn something new until the very end of the book!

Background story:

Mhm...yes, we got a lot more info about the paranormal "science" behind Ever and Damen...It's just that sometimes I didn't care so much. What was interesting was to get to know more about Damen's past.


Alyson Noel has a very nice writing style. By which I mean, I enjoy reading her stories, because she really knows how to transfer emotions while still being funny and witty from time to time.

I am not a Paranormal Romance fan, so I wasn't absolutely into it from the start. Blue Moon was not as good as Evermore, though. In my opinion, the one thing that really pulled this novel down was the dragging plot. It made it hard wanting to pick it up again after I had put it down.
UPDATE: I finished the third book in the series, Shadowland, and have to tell you - that book is totally worth working through Blue Moon! I wasn't sure if I'd continue the series after the secong book, but now I can only recommend you read this novel and then go ahead and devour Shadowland :)


  1. I've seen so any of Alyson Noel's books around, but haven't really had the chance to read them. Like you, I'm not huge on PNR and completely agree with you about how we get to know something only at the end! True that. *thumbs up* Well said! Nonetheless, I'm glad the series is going well for you. Great review!

    1. It's sooo annoying with PNR sometimes, isn't it? It's usually not the characters or the writing or something. It's just that the story seems to go in circles until BOOM the last twenty pages reveal the big secret everyone's been waiting for. Anyway, I did enjoy the third book a LOT, so I guess I'll just continue the series and see how it goes...
