Blue Moon an Imaginative Heart-Stopper
"Be sure to have the Bayer aspirin close by because Blue Moon by Alyson Noel just might stop your heart.
Those of you who loved Evermore, the first installment in Alyson Noel’s The Immortals series, will be glad you waited for Blue Moon. Set to debut in August, Blue Moon is the continuation of the centuries-old love story of Ever and Damen, seemingly star-crossed lovers doomed to lose one another lifetime after lifetime. However, when Ever chooses immortality at the end of Evermore, both Ever and Damen believe there is nothing to stop them from sharing eternity together. That is, until Damen gets sick.
As Ever becomes more skilled in her new role as an immortal, Damen’s flawless skills are weakening–as rapidly as his health. In an attempt to save his life before he loses his immortality, Ever must return to Summerland and unravel the past in order to save the future. But when she discovers she can actually change the past, will she choose to save her family or to save Damen? Or will she be too late to save either? In a world where Ever can trust no one, mistakes come easy, and this ending will certainly leave your head reeling.
Noel’s writing in Blue Moon is pure artistry, with its conversational flow and true-to-life dialogue. And in the midst of life threatening situations and centuries-old conflicts, she still manages to perfectly capture the cruel high school atmosphere and social hierarchy teens must deal with on top of their larger-than-life problems. As a result, readers will experience a great variety of emotions, similar to those of the grieving process: denial, anger, bitterness, acceptance, hope, anger, more anger, more hope, and finally, extreme anticipation. In fact, the tension between Damen and Ever–first established in Evermore– doesn’t ease up a bit in Blue Moon, which will keep your heart racing and your blood stirring from beginning to end. And the end? Well, I refuse to give away an ending so carefully and perfectly pieced together, but I will say that you’ll never see it coming and you will be aching to read the third book in the series, expected to hit shelves in February 2010."
