Author: Gillian Shields
Review by Kirthi
Summary by Book Flap
Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated then she could have ever dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness.
Evie's only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebelious, mocking, dangerously attractice yound man she meets by chance. As Evie's feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is giding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, shodtly girl--a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.
"Immortal is beautifully wrought and carefully woven. The magic of this enticing gothic romance will linger after the last page is turned"
-Melissa Marr author of Wicked Lovely
I agree with Melissa Marr, this book was original and suspenseful, and the romance was spooky. Thanks to Maura from Monster of Books for giving me the suggestion of reading this. I enjoyed it, the history and mystery involved just forced me to keep reading. The beggening hooked me at the first word, unlike other books that bore the reader to death. The cover is bewitching and alluring, and blue (my favorite color). This is a great read and will leave you wishing there had been more pages (which is only 360)
