Paperback, 284 pages

Eager to learn everything she can about her new abilities as an Immortal, Ever turns to her beloved Damen to show her the way. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen’s are waning.  In an attempt to save him, Ever travels to the magical dimension of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen’s tortured past; a past which he has always kept hidden from her. But in her quest to cure Damen, Ever discovers an ancient text that details the workings of time. Now Ever must chose between turning back the past and saving her family from the accident that claimed their lives—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows sicker every day…  

 Now that Ever has been reunited with her Immortal love, Damon, things seem to be finally going Ever’s way.  She has new Immortal powers, her best friends are happy and she has been introduced to Summerland (a magical place).  Nothing can wrong, or so it seems.  Damon becomes sick and only gets sicker.  Ever knows something is seriously wrong – Immortals do not get sick. With Damon getting sicker by the day, Ever is desperate to find out why and a cure.  But how does she know what to do? Damon is unable to guide her as before, leavning her to ind answers on her own.  Ever can’t afford to have any distractions… that is until Roman, a new student, shows up at school.  With his European charms Roman is wining everyone over.  But Ever knows that something is off about him, she can’t quite put her finger on it.  Alyson Noel complicates Ever’s world even further in the 2nd installment of her Immortal Series. 

Ever is forced to grow up even more in this book.  Not only does Ever try to find out why Damon is suddenly sick, she also tries to find out why everyone is falling under Roman’s spell.  In Ever’s journey, Alyson Noel develops her character even further, showing that while she may be an Immortal she is more human more than ever.  Alyson Noel also developed a very well thought out plot.  While, as a reader, I had a slim idea of what as going on, I was still surprised by the actual events that you are not told about until the very end.  Even further, Blue Moon ended in a great cliffhanger, leaving me wanted to read the next book in the series right away.
