Book 3 of the Immortals series

Shadowland by Alyson Noel

Teenage immortal Ever, newly reconnected with her boyfriend-across-the-centuries, Damen, works hard to get things right, both in the mortal and immortal worlds. Her best (mortal) friend has troubles that magick could fix, but Damen teaches Ever why this would be wrong to pursue. Meanwhile, evil immortal Roman hovers only barely offstage, Ever hooks her history teacher up with her aunt, and she rescues 13-year-old immortal witch twins only to wind up watching Damen turn parental. Noël continues to offer a satisfying brew of fantasy with genuine and engagingly promoted ethical questions in this third volume in the Immortals series.

Editorial Reviews:
“Noel’s novel is absolutely amazing!  Fans of her Immortals series will not be disappointed—Ever and Damen’s love is challenged like never before, and the story ends with a big, satisfying twist that will have readers begging for more.  This long awaited installment is incredible.”  --Romantic Times (Top Pick)
“I have never been more unexpectedly surprised by an author. Noel knows exactly how to keep me enthralled in her books…Shadowland is purely mesmerizing. A book with a little bit of everything in it— romance, suspense, friendship, and immortality—all meshed together to create a mind-blowing combination.” –The Book Blogger

My 2 cents:  Shadowland is my favorite of the Immortals series.  At least so far!  This is where the story takes incredible turns.  There is a lot of dark in this novel, and Ever makes mistake after mistake.  Sometimes you just want to scream at her!  But it keeps up the suspense!  What I love best is the ending.  The way Ever finally learns to solve her problems is amazing, and a great model for kids!  5 stars!
