Blue Moon by Alyson Noël (2009)

This book was a birthday present from my mum who confessed she saw it in a supermarket and thought I might like it. We soon realised it was a book was actually the second in The Immortals series, but I am a huge fan of anything fantasy and was high on my reading list even if I couldn't read them in order.

It took me just over 2 weeks to read, which is no indication of its content which was great, but just a victim to my busy timetable of late. But anyway - about the book...

The synopsis provided on the cover reads:

"Things have changed for Ever since she fell in love with Damen. But just as her powers are increasing, Damen seems to be weakening. Panicked at the thought of loosing him, Ever finds a path to the inbetween world of Summerland, where she learns the secrets of Damen's tortured past - and accidentally discovers a way to twist time. Now she can save her family from the accident that killed them. It's all she's ever wanted - but so is Damen. And Ever must choose between them..."

Try not to be confused by the name Ever in the synopsis, as it takes a page or two to get used heteronym but I didn't think after then. Yet I was captured by the first page. Think magic from Harry Potter, and romance from Twilight.

Yes this book is a teen read but it does it well. And not as predictable as I first thought!! It does have that annoying American High School thing going on, and the usual popular and jock divide. But it is twisted and distorted in a narrative that I really enjoyed.

I am really keen to source an read the other books in the series, which is becoming and expensive habit. First it was the Stargazer series, the Women of the OtherWorld and now this, but I love the little bite size pieces of escapism.

Well recommended to fans of teen fantasy fiction, however may be a little tedious for 18+ audience (although I loved it!!)
