The Immortals #2: Blue Moon (2009)

Blue Moon

the story continued after Damen saved Ever from the car accident that killed all her family, and Ever in returned also killed Damen's possessive ex-wife, Drina, when she attacked Ever in her house. they were the supposed remaining Immortals left roaming the world. but while Ever was taking her sweet time familiarizing and adapting to her new skills that she learned from Damen, Roman appeared. unlike Damen who was a pure Immortal, Roman was a Rogue Immortal. he shared a history with Damen, Drina, and even Ever's past incarnations. despite her love for Drina, Roman had forced himself to stay out of their love triangle until Drina was killed and he swore revenge. on the surface, Roman was just another handsome student that had just enrolled after Damen. he easily influenced everyone, controlling them into believing that Ever was the freak, isolating her even from her 2 best friends, Miles and Haven. his spell weakened by the end of Blue Moon (each year has 12 full moons, but with the extra days accumulated for every leap year, there will be a Blue Moon, an extra full moon every 2-3 years). Roman successfully poisoned Damen through the Immortal elixir. when Damen started behaving like an average teenager and rejecting Ever of her love, Ever panicked and became desperate trying to save Damen, where she also started to believe all the wrong people, making things worst.

Blue Moon (2009) was every bit as captivating as Evermore (2009)! it was so full of suspense and unknowns cleverly put together in an unsuspecting way. i never would have thought with the introduction of Roman, the story would have me climb aboard a roller coaster ride while Ever fought against life and death. i loved how the bits and pieces of their past were put into motion, making the whole scene played before me and at the same time clarified their connections, which immediately made perfect sense. in this series, the spooky identical twins Romy and Rayne, were also introduced. their mysterious aura, coming out of nowhere claiming to help, yet looking highly annoyed and unwilling had one wondering whether they were truly friend or foe. all in all, although it could be a little frustrating watching Ever struggled to trust some wrong people but i can't hide my surprise that even i was deceived by some characters that had stayed around for so long that no one would have suspected them to be untrustworthy otherwise.
