Evermore by Alyson Noel

Noel, Alyson Evermore, 306 p. St. Martin’s Griffin, 2009. $9.95. Language: PG-13 (7 swears, 3 “f”). Ever Bloom’s family died in a terrible car accident that should have also killed Ever, but she was saved by a mysterious stranger who never stuck around. Since that day, Ever can see people’s auras, hear their thoughts and know all about them just by touching them. Until, however, Damen comes to town; he has no aura. Around him, Ever can’t hear anyone and she is drawn to him. Danger also seems to be near, as Ever has no idea that she is part of an ages old love triangle – and the other member would prefer that Ever to be dead – forever. I hate the random uselessness of the few swears in this otherwise fabulous book. While it echoes Twilight faintly, it also is a fabulous book in it’s own right. MS –OPTIONAL, HS – ESSENTIAL.

I've blog rolled you-- I love the fact that you, too, are bothered by gratuitous profanity. Your reviews were really helpful!
