Shadowland by Alyson Noel Review

Shadowland is the third book in the Immortals Series.

Enter the realm of the Immortals—the #1 New York Times bestselling series that’s been acclaimed as breathtaking, mesmerizing, flawless and extraordinary.
Ever and Damen have traveled through countless past lives—and fought off the world’s darkest enemies—so they could be together forever. But just when their long-awaited destiny is finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon Damen…one that could destroy everything. Now a single touch of their hands or a soft brush of their lips could mean sudden death—plunging Damen into the Shadowland. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick—and gets help from an unexpected source…a surfer named Jude.
Although she and Jude have only just met, he feels startlingly familiar. Despite her fierce loyalty to Damen, Ever is drawn to Jude, a green-eyed golden boy with magical talents and a mysterious past. She’s always believed Damen to be her soulmate and one true love—and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before…

Ever, the main character, and her boyfriend Damen are forced to to try and find a way to break the curse that is set on them. With any transfer of their body cells on the other will result in unwanted and dangerous consequences. Jude a surfer boy who takes charge of running his guardian's shop soon enters Ever's world. Ever and Jude have an instant attraction towards each other. Will Ever and Damen's love survive? Well I don't want to give too much away so if you are interested go out and buy the book.

This is an easy book to get into. When each chapter ended I was propelled to keep on reading. There was also the addition of more characters to the book. Which made it all the more interesting to read. As you read you will never guess what will happen next. Alyson throws in twists that you cannot see coming. I have read the first and second book to this series and loved both of them. However this book was sort of a disappointment to me. Alyson kept on repeating stuff for example the descriptions of the characters. By her doing this I felt like she was talking down on the audience as if we are dumb. The other problem I had was that the plot did not come till about the last 100 pages. This book leaves you wandering what will happen next.
