In the front of Blue Moon author Alyson Noel adds quote " Every man has his own destiny; the only imperative is to follow it, to accept it, no matter where it leads him." By Henry Miller. This quote completely portrays her story line which also embeds in our heads that although the past can't be changed the future has a number of possibilities it's all up to us on how we make it. Blue moon brings us back to Ever when she is learning the many abilities she is now blessed with after becoming immortal. Damen is a great teacher but Ever always finds herself very distracted never wanting to miss an opportunity to make out with the her soul-mate. Time and time again though she pulls herself away just as they are about to get as close as two people can be, she envisions all the years he spent with out her by his side and doesn't even want to begin the notion with whom he spent that time with. Ever's friends Miles & Haven have even begun to get sick of the love fest that is Ever and Damen. A new kid, Roman is there one day waiting at the lunch room table one day and Ever can't seem to shake this awful feeling she has every time he is around. He seems to be around quite a bit even shares several classes with Ever. Of course everyone else seems to think he is just great especially Haven who seems to have a bit of a crush on him. As the normal everyday seems to be perfect and she thinks she might even get past her insecurities, they even go as far as reserving a room. Damen starts to feel funny and even has trouble manifesting flowers for Miles great break through performance in the school musical Hairspray. When Ever notices his trouble she quickly uses her new powers to get the job done trying to reassure him. He tells her he will bring the car around while she gives the congrats to Miles on his awesome performance. As time ticks by she becomes more concern he has come in she goes to wait outside for him only to find him not there, waiting patiently till almost no one is left there. Roman walks out and quickly reminds her that Daman must be crazy to have left her, offering her a ride. With his creepiness seeping all over him all she wants is to know what happen to Damen and for Roman to leave her be. The story begins to take some unusual twist from here. The next day at school Damen is there as usual only he is parked somewhere different then his designated spot and when she approaches him he clearly states that he has received all 50 something calls and gives her the complete cold shoulder this is totally not the Damen Ever knows. Something is clearly wrong here and it will take digging through Damen's past and hers just to figure it out. As the story progresses the not so innocent Roman begins to look more and more like the culprit. All and all this was a great sequel to Evermore there are a ton of twist in the story line and it will keep you glued all the way to the end. I have to say the ending wasn't that great to me but I know there is great reasons be hide it and can't wait for Shadowland!
