Ever (which by the way is one of the most original names ever((excuse the pun!))) is an interesting main character in that she isn’t always completely likeable but you can’t help but empathise with her at the same time. She has become an orphan and lost her sister all at once and has to deal with a new home, new school, a whole new life really. Not to mention her new psychic abilities. Damen is instantly beautiful and gripping character too, even more so than Ever as he always seems to be trying so hard to please Ever.
The storyline is new, original and so refreshing in a young adult book. Even though I love the vampire craze taking over young adult books at the moment, this is a refreshing change on the scenario. Damen isn’t a vampire, he is an immortal, which apparently is not the same thing people! He doesn’t need to feed on blood to survive although he does drink a suspicious red liquid which we don’t learn much about in this book so I wouldn’t rule that out.
I am so intrigued about how the story is going to continue and think this is my first exciting of 2011.
