Ever goes to this new school after losing everything, hiding under baggy clothes and acting like a loner, though she makes a few friends. After the terrible accident where she lost all her family, Ever got a few gifts, reading peoples mind and knowing their whole lives by just touching them, and seeing peoples auras, and as a plus, she can see the ghost of her dead sister, and talk to her. But Ever refuses to acknowledge her talents as much as possible, but she does keep her sister close.
Then Damon comes along, and things start to change. Ever can’t read his thoughts, and even stranger, he has no aura. So obviously something ‘s off, and the more she spends time with him, the more things start getting weird, and her minds drifts to a whole lot of crazy possibilities. For one, Damon is very, very, very old, and he always carries around this red substance to drink, and he eats nothing else, he has a lot of money and a few old books signed by their original authors. Van Gogh included – or maybe it was Shakespeare, I can’t remember. No why does this sound so familiar???
But no, he is not a vampire, and the book is no a twilight copy, In fact, they are completely opposites (only that Damen looks exactly like Taylor Lautner but, that’s just a plus). The only thing Damen really is, is a guy as old as hell, that’s all, and between him and Ever, there’s no forbidden romance, no Epic love, no nothing whatsoever, well yeah, its obvious they love each other a lot and they share more things in common than you can imagine. But still, I just never felt that spark.
The idea’s good really. But I just hated Ever, well maybe not hate, but she was just plan annoying, completely annoying, winy and even theatrical, I found it super annoying to be inside her head, and I’m covering myself behind a rock now, In case the fans of the book want to come after me, because this book does have a lot of fans, but I’m just not one of them. It wasn’t a bad story, but it wasn’t awesome either, to me of course, I think it was ok to be the first book (and frankly it would’ve been better if it was the last and only one) and yes, I did read the second book, only out of curiosity, but that’s another story – or review.
Oh, so you see some chick in baggy jeans and a hoodie, and you just have to have her so bad, you decide to repeat high school, just to get her?""Sounds about right." He laughs
