A blog for all my reviews, rants, thoughts, and whatnots. Well, yeah, pretty much. Also, there will be random posts about movies, music, and other mundane stuffs like that. But this will be mostly me blabbering, ranting, and gushing about my latest read. So, if you are one who finds bliss in sipping a cup of tea while reading a book on a rainy day such as myself, then by all means, read on! :)

Shadowland (The Immortals #3) by Alyson Noel

The Blurb:
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 Damen…one 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 soulmate 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 Review:

So I finished it, FINALLY! Hell. I've been so eager to finish this book, not because it's very exciting that you can't put it down, no -- I felt exactly the complete opposite of that. I loved Evermore and Bluemoon, but Shadowland? I don't think so. Not that I hate it, just that it's sort of disappointing for me, it doesn't even satisfy any of the loose ends from Bluemoon. In Evermore, I thought Ever is kind, and smart, and selfless. Then in Bluemoon, I thought she's still the same though she made a huge mistake. But in Shadowland? I thought Ever has become this shallow and annoying person. She makes new mistakes all the time, she makes the wrong decisions because she's keeping everything to herself. Really, it became uhm... boring? Though once you started reading it, I guarantee that you'll surely get yourself into finishing it till the very end. But other than that, yeah, it's boring, really. *sigh* I just hope Dark Flame is a lot better than this one.
