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?
Haven or Hell? Man, this gal really is Hell....Ever's personal hell. It seems that everything that Ever does ends up working to Haven's advantage. You could just feel the evilness oozing out of this ex-best friend. Have you ever had a friend like this? (not someone you've brought back to life with some magical elixir) Someone you've loved and admired who has turned into a super B**CH? Well, I think that Ms. Noel did an excellent job of capturing this. Girls are funny creatures, don't you think? Guys get pissed off and they just duke it out and get things over with. Girls on the other hand mess with each other's minds, feelings and use other tools like ostracizing and manipulating situations. It's like slow and painful torture!
I wasn't sure how much I'd enjoy this book. To be honest, I was starting to lose a bit of interest in the series because Ever's attitude was bugging me but I have invested so much into reading this series that I just couldn't help myself. I had to find out. I really enjoyed the outcome. Will Damon and Ever be able to touch again? Can they find that elusive antidote? Will Ever and Haven have a showdown? Well, I guess I'll have to let you read and find out (like I said, girls like slow and painful torture....)
I had a ton of quotes that I wanted to add to this post but I lost my notes! AUGH! Not a good start to the new year!!
