It has taken me a year yes a year to get through this damn book lol - I was stuck, literally not able to push through a couple chapters, but in the end I sat down with a good drink (wink wink) and was able to get do it. It ended up being worth it and I tore through Dark Flame.
Shadowland deals with Ever's decision to keep Damen alive. It seemed to revolve for chapters around them not being able to touch, their love still virgin (literally). Maybe this is what just made me pause on the book... too much of 'I can't have' and self pity... I didn't like it.
Dark Flame was back in the action - more twists... the urges she felt were severe and intriguing since it wasn't for Damen but another. I couldn't believe where the author took the book and loved every minute of it!
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 as 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 a bleak afterlife in the Shadowland, an eternal abyss for lost souls. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick—and gets help from an unexpected source...Jude Knight.
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 soul mate and one true love—and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them from the darkness inhabiting his soul, Ever's connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before...
In this eagerly awaited continuation of the bestselling Immortals series, Ever struggles to help her best friend Haven transition into life as an immortal—trying to keep her from doing anything that puts them at risk, while attempting to gain control over her enemy Roman, so she can finally obtain the antidote that will allow her and Damen to be together. But when the spell she casts backfires, resulting in a strange, foreign pulse that binds her to Roman instead, Ever turns to Jude and dark magick, desperately attempting to break free of the curse, and ultimately risking everything she knows and loves—including her beloved Damen.
