Book 5 (Book 1: Evermore, Book 2: Blue Moon, Book 3: Shadowland, Book 4: Dark Flame)
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?
So I found myself liking this book a lot more than the previous one. In this book Haven has sworn revenge and she really knows how to hold a grudge. She is the main antagonist in this book. She kind of failed as a bad guy for me. Sure she seemed pretty bad but it seemed really superficial. She just seemed to become the stereotypical bad guy. She learnt nothing in the whole book. Ever seems to have grown up a bit. She finally sees into her past lives with Damen both the good and the bad. With this knowledge she is able to grow. Damen continues to baby Ever and want to shield from all the bad but he needs to learn that she needs to face the bad as well. He doesn’t grow. Out of all the characters he seems to change the least. Or I should say for him changing and growing is a really slow process. Jude seems to mature a bit and throughout the whole book he doesn’t really waiver with his feelings. Miles plays a lot bigger role in this book which was nice. He finally is included in some big stuff. Towards the end of the book we learn the Summerland isn’t all wonderful. There is a dark place and a creepy message is given to Ever. I think this new plot twist is really interesting and I kind of which that all the other books didn’t really happen. For instance the whole can’t touch curse, Roman’s death, and Jude’s introduction could of all been in one book which would make this book the third in the series. I think that would have been better. The whole not being able to touch thing hasn’t been fixed yet and it kind of seems to be dragging on. I would recommend this book because it sort of redeems the series.
The conclusion to the series is in the book Everlasting.
