Series: The Immortals (Book 1)

Synopsis: 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. But she doesn’t know who he really is— or what he is.

Review: Since being in a terrible car accident that killed her family, Ever has been psychic - she sees auras, hears thoughts and feels everything a person feels when they touch her. That is until she meets Damen Auguste, she can't hear or feel anything from him, and it's a welcome relief. But Damen is hiding big secrets, things he doesn't want Ever to find out...

I quite enjoyed this book, the premise was along the lines of Sookie - with the mind-reading female and the silent male, and Twilight - with the obsessed, almost creepy boyfriend and the girl who thinks she's nothing. Written for teenagers, it's very easy to read, the storyline whilst nothing particularly special or original is enjoyable enough, and flows along nicely. I think fans of Twilight will probably enjoy this, although in my opinion Twilight is better, but this has the potential to grow into a interesting series, so I will certainly be reading the next book Blue Moon when it's released in March in the hopes it's as good as this one was.

My issue with this book was that it was too much like other books I'd read before.
