Description: Haven still blames Ever for the death of her boyfriend Roman, no matter how hard Ever’s tried to convince her it was an accident. Now she’s determined to take Ever down…and destroy Damen and Jude along the way. Her first step is to tear Ever and Damen apart—and she has just the ammunition to do it. Hidden in one of Ever’s past lives is a terrible secret about Damen—a secret that illuminates new facts about her relationship with Jude, but that’s so dark and brutal it might be enough to drive her and Damen apart once and for all. As Ever faces her greatest fears about the guy she wants to spend eternity with, she’s thrust into a deadly clash with Haven that could destroy them all. Now it’ll take everything she’s got—and bring out powers she never knew she had—to face down her most formidable enemy. But in order to win, she must first ask herself: is her own survival worth dooming Haven to an eternity of darkness in the Shadowland? And will learning the truth about Damen’s past hold the key to their future?
I Give This ...
I was a little hesitant with reading this one. The back and forth in the story was really starting to get to me. Not to mention some of the choices that Ever has made along the way. I had hope that the author could redeem the story little.
I was both right and wrong in that aspect. Of course Ever still has some trust issues with Damen. She's horrible at jumping to conclusions and assuming the worst. I also don't really like her attitude towards her aunt. I wonder if she realizes that she sounds a bit like Haven when she stars spotting off that her aunt doesn't know what's really going on and refuses to accepts things she's been told. Damen was ok. I wish he would stop hiding things from Ever because you know a lot of this heartache could be avoided. Plus, its weird how he rushed to the defense of everyone else. And Haven...wow. I knew it was coming, but she's a really violent character. I'm glad we have some resolution there, because I don't think I could have stood another book with the same theme.
I was so HAPPY to finally see some resolution with some story lines. Ever finally choose, and I think it's a good choice and she fully understands what she's doing. Plus, I think we have a better understanding of Damen and all their past lives together. Damen was sugar coating a lot of it.
I thought this book was ok, even though it had a lot of the things I was hoping might happen. I'm also hoping that the next book in the series is the last. There's not much left to do!
