Synopsis: After fighting for centuries to be together, Ever and Damen’s future hinges on one final showdown that will leave readers gasping for breath. Don’t miss this explosive new installment of the #1 bestselling series that’s enchanted millions across the world!
Haven still blames Ever for the death of her boyfriend Roman, no matter how hard Ever’s tried to convince her it was an accident. Now she’s determined to take Ever down…and destroy Damen and Jude along the way. Her first step is to tear Ever and Damen apart—and she has just the ammunition to do it.
Hidden in one of Ever’s past lives is a terrible secret about Damen—a secret that illuminates new facts about her relationship with Jude, but that’s so dark and brutal it might be enough to drive her and Damen apart once and for all. As Ever faces her greatest fears about the guy she wants to spend eternity with, she’s thrust into a deadly clash with Haven that could destroy them all.
Now it’ll take everything she’s got—and bring out powers she never knew she had—to face down her most formidable enemy. But in order to win, she must first ask herself: is her own survival worth dooming Haven to an eternity of darkness in the Shadowland? And will learning the truth about Damen’s past hold the key to their future?

            I’ve loved the Immortals from the very beginning specially Blue Moon.  I love the writing style of Alyson which is very captivation and thanks to her for creating the magical place called Summerland where you could conjure anything you desire.

            But as I’ve followed this series, I get used to the idea of somebody dying, and when somebody dies someone will seek revenge for the death of that person and the cycle becomes so tedious. Like in this book, the former best friend of Ever is avenging for the death of her immortal lover. I know Haven is somewhat annoying and stubborn from the beginning but in this book I get so pissed at her attitude, stubbornness and for being so self centered person. At first I was expecting for a change for Haven like she will repent for her mistakes and she and Ever will be friends again but Alyson basically denied that expectation and gives a better outcome for the plot.

            And for Ever, I love how she transformed in this book and became a better person and finally she learned how to trust and fight off her weaknesses.

            I loved the ending where if left me with something to look forward for the final installment. I’m happy that I think there will no longer be revenge on the next book.

            Overall, it’s still captivating and reading Alyson’s works keep me hooked up.
