The Immortals by Alyson Noel

After a horrible accident claims the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever Bloom can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts, and know someone’s entire life story by touching them. Going out of her way to avoid human contact to suppress her abilities, she has been branded a freak at her new high school — but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste.

Damen is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy. He’s the only one who can silence the noise and random energy in her head – wielding a magic so intense, it’s as though he can peer straight into her soul. As Ever is drawn deeper into his enticing world of secrets and mystery, she’s left with more questions than answers. And she has no idea just who he really is – or what he is.

Holy wow. This is amazing.

As far as paranormal fantasy goes, I’ll admit that this series is kind of a cliché what with the whole “Immortals” thing going on. However, I find that you should judge a book based on how much you enjoy it, not how cliché the story is.

And I have to say that I enjoyed these very much. The Immortals is an amazing story that you really need to read. The plot, the climax, everything. I experienced so many different intense emotions which made this pretty much a rollercoaster.

Also what is it with people called Damen (or some other spelling of the same name)? Seriously, in this book, in Obsidian, and even in the Vampire Diaries – they are all so awesome and hilarious and amazing and… I’m running out of words.

I also found that the series had a pretty prominent historical element going on, which I quite like because it gave the characters a little more depth and gave the storyline a bit of a charming side.

Anyway, as for the villains, they were those really nice kind of villain where they’re evil yet you still feel bad for them so they’re kind of good… You get what I’m saying? It’s yet another thing that I loved about this series.

As for the ending, I’m gonna try really really hard not to spoil this for you, but I need to say that I found it so enlightening. You know at the end of Kung Fu Panda movies when Po gets all into the Tai Chi stuff and all deep? That’s how the book made me feel. It may have started out cliché, but the ending of the series was not at all – in fact, it took on a more philosophical tone, but not in an unpleasant, boring way.
