"Things have changed for Ever since she met her beloved Damen - not least because she's got a whole new set of powers, courtesy of her new Immortal status. Just as she's getting stronger, though, Damen seems to be weakening. Panicked at the thought of losing him, Ever finds a path to the in-between world known as Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen's tortured past. But in searching for a cure for him, Ever accidentally discovers a way to twist time so she can save her family from the accident that killed them. It's all she's ever wanted - but so is Damen. And Ever must choose between them..."

Firstly let me tell you why I will definitely continue this series:
Its not predictable, the Author takes you places you never thought it would go. Also you know when you say "please please let this happen in the book!" and it never does? Well here it does! For this seemingly simple reason I know that I will love every single book in this series.
Roman is a new character that's introduced and he left me thrashing between "is he good?" "or not?" the whole time.
Ever's school life gets more interesting as she becomes even more of a outcast, but you will have to read why. And may I just add, someone please slap Stacia!
I was left with sooo many questions and I can't wait to read the next novel to find out all the answers! I have also learned this one lesson: Do not trust anyone...
If you are looking for suspense and mystery with some young adult and paranormal romance thrown in, then this is your book! Get ready to want to strangle Ever a few times tho or maybe even scream at some of the characters.
Oh how I loved it when Ever "went back". I really wanted it to happen and I'm so glad it did! It reminded me a bit of the butterfly effect!
Ava? what happened? Did you really do what Roman said? I think there is more to this story!
I must admit Romans speech in the end did take some of the fun out of the book. I just wanted him to say what his deal was and get it over with! But it was the classic "villain speech".
Also did Riley really send the twins? What's their deal?
I think Ever was incredibly stupid to trust Roman in the end, and she deserves the whole "you can't touch each other" thing!
"The fact is, the heart and mind aren't always friendly.
And in my case, they're barely speaking."
"If you insist on the chase," I say, my voice much surer than I feel."Then you better start training. 'Cause, dude you're in for a marathon."
