Their darkest enemies now defeated, Damen and Ever are free to embark upon their final quest—to free Damen from the poison lingering in his body. If they can just find the antidote, they’ll finally be able to feel each other’s touch—and experience the passionate night they’ve been longing for. But their fight to be together will lead them into the most formidable terrain yet…into the dark heart of Summerland.

Here in a land of scorched earth and endless rain, Ever and Damen will discover their relationship’s hidden origins, expose a secret history they never imagined…and come face to face with the true reason fate keeps tearing them apart. Only then, when the final mystery is unraveled and the last secret revealed, Ever and Damen’s future will hinge on one ultimate decision that will put everything at stake….even eternity.  

EXPECTATIONS: The final books of the series and I must say yessss finally. I have no idea why and how I managed to last so long. Sometimes my priorities are seriously off!

THE WORLD: We are still in the say world that looks just like hours but has additional layer beyond. Basically there are these teenagers who once discovered secret of eternal life and now are kinda immortal. Interestingly, even tho they have been around for many hundred years they still act incredibly dumb and unrealistic.

CHARACTERS: In this book it is all about discovering who you are. And I don't mean in terms of human or paranormal creatures. This is literary existential problem, how I fit in and who am I really? Keeping in mind that this book about teens who act like spoiled little brats....well yeah manes no sense at all. Anyways, so Ever wants to stop this whole immortality thing going on because you know it is so wrong. And Damon obviously doesn't want to just go and die if he can be immortal. So we get a lot of drama which all goes to the fact that oh if you love me it is worth growing old and dying together. What nonsense is this? Yes having one long human life is great but giving up immortality, a chance to see the future, to learn new things? And I am not talking here about being forever young. I am talking about a fact that if you never died, how many books you would be able to read, how many new things to learn, how many cultures to understand and languages to master? And to give this all up for a boy? And on top of that for a boy that can just go be immortal with you? I really don't get this book and choices characters make. 

ROMANCE: Ever and Damon drama drama drama.

GOOD: Nothing.

BAD: This book is beyond stupid is all I can say. It literary promotes teenager love over a chance at knowledge. 

OVERALL: Do not recommend. The whole series is a complete waste of time and I am sad for the trees that were to cut down to have this book printed. 

What do you think about EVERLASTING?
