Blue Moon (Immortals #2) by Alyson Noel

Book 2 in the Immortals Series, Blue Moon, continues the story of the Immortals Ever and Damen.  This book follows Ever as she grows in her power as an Immortal while Damen's begins to mysteriously wane.  Ever cannot depend on Damen to help her help him.  What does the new Immortal in their lives have to do with the predicament that they find themselves in?

I have to admit that I did not like this book as much as the first.  Ever may be too much the typical teenage girl character for me.  She's a bit whiny and selfish and .... I don't know, she just grated on my nerves in this book.  It made it hard for me to read.  I also have gotten to the point where Haven drives me nuts.  I felt bad for Haven at first but I believe that there comes a point when a true friend will sit you down and tell you to that destructive behavior has to stop.  Haven just is not in a healthy place and Ever allows it to go on and on.  Not what a friend should do.  I really can't place what it was that made it harder for me to read this book than the first one but I just really didn't like it as much.  Don't get me wrong, I liked the book and the story was interesting but I only liked it.  It wasn't an amazing read, for me.  I'm sure for someone else, it could be awesome.  I'm going to finish the series though, because the books are good.  I think I'll just take a little break from the world of the Immortals and come back to in in a few weeks or so.  But don't take my word as the be all, end all on this book.  Be sure to check out Goodreads for other reviews.

Blue Moon earns 3 Fairies for a decent story in the continuation of the series.

I've read the first 4 books in the series and the first was by far the best. I think they kind of go downhill from there. :(
