Review of Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Immortals Series Book 3

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 when 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 the Shadowland.   Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick—and gets help from an unexpected source…a surfer named Jude.

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 soulmate and one true love—and she still believes it to be true.  But as Damen pulls away to save them, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before...

If Shadowland was part of a sandwich filling, it would be that bit of soggy lettuce that you don't really want, but decide to eat anyway. It wasn't the best book in the series and quite frankly, it's pretty boring. Unfortunately I wanted to get to the last book, so it needed to be read. I do love The Immortals series, purely for it's silliness (I'm not a Vampire! I have magick juice!) and hopefully the rest of the books will be better.

Ever is the main problem in this. She's developed a rather large ego and ignores everyone's advice, which just makes everything more awkward. She doesn't seem to realise she's immortal and has all the time in the world, she too focused on getting laid, to put it bluntly.

The addition of the twins was a nice one, as they were my favourite characters in the last book. They show their age more in this one and actually start acting like 13 year olds. This would be great but Ever just sees them as the second obstacle in the way of her, Damen and a large bed. The first one being your favourite creepy stalker that's about as scary as a Scottish Fold kitten, Roman. Roman does what he's good at in this - he turns up every so often, basically sings 'I've got the cure and you can't have it!' and disappears again. Only without the singing. And poor Ever. Not only dies she have to cope with Roman and the Twins but Sabine has a new boyfriend who's also Ever's teacher! They shouldn't be dating! It's gross! And Ever has to get a job with a really hot surfer guy! How Ever* will she cope?

*Pun intended.

3/5
