Shadowland (The Immortals, #3) by Alyson Noel
A Pirate Princess Review
DESCRIPTION: “Ever and Damen have gone through countless lives and fought off the world’s darkest enemies so they could be together. But just when an everlasting future is finally within their reach, Damen is struck down by a curse—a dark spell separating him and Ever for eternity. Now sharing so much as a single touch could bring about Damen’s death…and send him plummeting into the Shadowland, an eternal abyss for lost souls. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses her herself in magick. And in her quest, she 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 from the darkness inhabiting his soul, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before…”

REVIEW: 3 STARS
Shadowland was good, but not as strong as the previous books in this paranormal series. The villain is once again Roman (who was introduced in the 2nd book), but for some reason it wasn’t as good. I gave this book three stars because, it just wasn’t…..strong. The plot line is good, but the drama and action I saw in the first two books is gone. There is still some action, but….eh.
Ever is Ever. She has a strong sense of being stubborn in this book (Eh) which also led her to some bad choices.
Damen wasn’t the best character in the book. He was very distant and not his dangerous self. I found this change another reason to give the book three stars.
The ending was okay, but Ever screwed up, HUGE. It wasn’t a favorite ending, but it ended strong.
Shadowland took place in California, in a nice town. It has a beach and houses, and some weird shops. This book is part of the Immortals series by Alyson Noel. It is preceded by Evermore and Blue Moon.
