Evermore by Alyson Noel
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews
Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, sixteen-year-old Ever can see auras, hear people’s thoughts, and know a person’s life story by touch.   Going out of her way to shield herself from human contact to suppress her abilities has branded her as a freak at her new high school—but everything changes when she meets Damen Auguste…
Ever sees Damen and feels an instant recognition.  He is gorgeous, exotic and wealthy, and he holds many secrets.  Damen is able to make things appear and disappear, he always seems to know what she’s thinking—and he’s the only one who can silence the noise and the random energy in her head.  She doesn’t know who he really is—or what he is.  Damen equals part light and part darkness, and he belongs to an enchanted new world where no one ever dies.

I wanted to like this book much more then I did, for me this was not a great book, it was an okay book. I am not sure if I will read the rest of the series or not. There were many similarites to Twilight,(I really dislike Twilight).
The only thing that kept me reading and kept me from giving this book a lower rating was Noel's writing style. I really liked her writing style. She is a wonderful storyteller and I liked the addition of the  auras and I enjoyed Ever's sister.

I agree...it wasn't the best book I've read but i will admit I did get it just trying to figure out what was going to happen, maybe that was due to the authors writing style like you said. I read did get the second and third books, but it was kind of a struggle getting through the second and I didn't finish the third..I plan to someday:-)
