Review : Evermore by Alyson Noel

Title : Evermore

Author: Alyson Noel

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

About the book:
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.

My Review

Evermore is about a 16 year old girl named Ever who was the part of the popular crowd of the High School, but then suddenly after a fatal accident she turns into a huge freak.She has to change her school and go stay with her aunt. She acquires a unique gift of seeing people's auras, hear thoughts by just touching them.And then, suddenly, everything changes in her life when she meets Damen Auguste. Damen is the only person around Ever who can silence "noise and random energy" as the back of the book says.

I feel the author has been inspired by Stephanie Meyer's Twilight :)
Although the two books are not similar except for the immortality concept, for the first few pages I couldn't help comparing it with Twilight.

Evermore is a good book, and I enjoyed reading it.I loved the connection between Ever and Her dead sister.The romance scenes could have been a little better. I think that the book was dragged a lot in the middle(actually the first half) which I found very boring. The ending was good, and although it’s the first book in the series, its a standalone.
Having said that, I would definitely read the next book.

Oh by the way, I loved the book cover :)
