Evermore by Alyson Noel

Here's the description:

Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch. Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…

Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition. He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets. Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head. She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is. Damen equal parts light and darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

I'm really excited about this book. It was a great read and a great start to Noel's Immortals series. Ever is a very interesting character filled with complex emotions and way more issues than the average teen has to deal with on a daily basis.

The supporting cast is a joy to read, including Riley, Miles, and Haven. They are true-to-life characters that I would love to hang out with.

And then there's Damen. He's a convincing romantic lead. He's got everything a girl could be looking for including some deep, dark secrets.

I enjoyed this book immensely. Just when I though I had it all figured out, Noel took it in a different direction. I like that she didn't just recycle the same old story. It was filled with real emotion....grief, love, guilt, and humor.

I can't wait to read the next book and see where Noel takes us.

By the way, I'm giving away a copy of this book along with 2 other titles in my first contest. Just scroll down, or take a look at the blog archive for My First Contest! Supernatural Prize Pack. The contest runs through Feb. 28th, so be sure to get entered.
