Shadowland (The Immortals #3) by Alyson Noel

Rating 2/5 stars
Pub. Date November 17th 2009


Enter the realm of the Immortals - the #1 New York Times bestselling series that's been acclaimed as breathtaking, mesmerizing, flawless and extraordinary.

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 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 soul mate 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....


The series seems to go from worse to worse. I will state what I didn't like below.

Ever`s "friend" Heaven. She makes some appearances and there isn't a single one that you can see her acting as a good friend. I wanted to slap her most of the time. 

Was the triangle really necessary? We know that Damien and Ever are forever. Why Judd had to be a part of all this? he seemed good. Noel dont make me hate him. 

Ever's inability to do something right. Somehow every time she tries to help someone or cast a spell she messes up and as a result bad things happen.

I have a bad feeling for the story and the way it goes. I am afraid it`s going to get worse. Not many authors have the ability to do that.
