Ever and Damen have traveled through countless past lives—and fought off the world’s darkest enemies—so they could be together forever. But just when their long-awaited destiny is finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon Damen…one that could destroy everything. Now a single touch of their hands or a soft brush of their lips could mean sudden death—plunging Damen into the Shadowland. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick—and gets help from an unexpected source…a surfer named Jude.

Although she and Jude have only just met, he feels startlingly familiar. Despite her fierce loyalty to Damen, Ever is drawn to Jude, a green-eyed golden boy with magical talents and a mysterious past. She’s always believed Damen to be her soulmate and one true love—and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before…


Beth says 2.5 Stars...

I liked this series at the beginning. It was fun, cute, light, and fluffy with a dash of magic. Perfect books for beach reading and other leisurely activities. Then it tried to get all serious, and it failed miserably. It feels like reading a terribly over dramatic soap opera. I will give it the fact that, like a soap opera, it still manages to remain entertaining. This is the third book in the series, and by this time I was hoping for some depth in the characters. Alas, that was not to be found. Ever is still as centered around herself and Damen as she always has been. The relationship between those two creeps me out just a little bit as well. I'm getting Twilight flashbacks and I don't like it. There's the living forever together, the extremely dominant male, the "other man" that threatens the relationship, and the relationship becoming the center of the girl's life. I guess I just like my heroines strong, yet flawed, and didn't get that at all from Ever. I couldn't connect with her any more, and found the connection from the previous novels (particularly the first, which I really enjoyed) waning. The plot really wasn't very good; it didn't suck me in. I felt like some events were meant to be shocking and rock my socks off, but I just didn't get it. It's not like this book was terrible, but it really wasn't very good. I'm not sure if I'll be continuing with the rest of the series, but if this is any indication, I certainly won't rush out to buy the next one.
