Night Star by: Alyson Noel
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?
Thoughts: I've got to say Night Star was better than I expected, and there is a brand new twist in the story, which will be resolved in the final book (I hope?). Evermore completely captured my attention, Blue Moon wasn't a bad sequel, I enjoyed it. When Shadowland hit it kind of started to go downhill for me. I feel as if the same things happen over and over again in the books, and well Haven annoys the crap of me. But, if you read my past reviews - you see that I never really enjoyed her, and well I knew she'd turn evil... it was only a matter of time. :)
This book was just okay for me. Ever is a strong girl, Miles is hilarious and a great friend, Jude is a doll, and well Damen I've got to give him credit... he's a pretty damn good sexy fella. Where this book didn't leave me in awe, it was still a good read and if you've been keeping up with the series... I'd say give it a go.
This installment, was well written. I'm glad that Ever finally made a choice and is going to fight for everything she deserves. Also, I have to say i'm happy with the way this book ended and of course I will finish the series and read "Everlasting". I hope everything gets resolved and things turn out for the good. We shall see this summmer...
