Title: Blue Moon
Author: Alyson Noel
Review: Kirthi Rao
Summary by book flap
Just as Ever is learning everything she can about her new abilities as an immortal, initiated into the dark, seductive world by her beloved Damen, something terrible is happening to him. As Ever's powers are increasing, Damen's are fading—stricken by a mysterious illness that threatens his memory, his identity, his life.
Desperate to save him, Ever travels to the mystical dimension of Summerland, uncovering not only the secrets of Damen's past—the brutal, tortured history he hoped to keep hidden—but also an ancient text revealing the workings of time. With the approaching blue moon heralding her only window for travel, Ever is forced to decide between turning back the clock and saving her family from the accident that claimed them—or staying in the present and saving Damen, who grows weaker each day...
My thoughts :
I LOVED Evermore, it was amazing, but when I read Blue Moon, I thought it was the most obvious copy of Stephanie Meyer's New Moon. The title, the antagonist, the plot, the events, EVERYTHING!!! Noel had a streak going with Evermore, it was totally original with maybe a hint of Meyer in it, but it was great. But now she just RUINED it with Blue Moon. even my friends, who just looked at the cover, knew it was going to be like New Moon!!!!!! I'll put a post later composed of Spoilers, with a list of similarities between New Moon and Blue Moon, which will be REALLY long.
