This is the third book in The Immortals series, I will not post any intentional spoilers but please do not keep reading if you have not read Evermore and Blue Moon. 

Ever and Damen have traveled through countless past lives—and fought off the world’s darkest enemies—so they could be together forever.  But just when their long-awaited destiny is finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon Damen…one that could destroy everything.  Now a single touch of their hands or a soft brush of their lips could mean sudden death—plunging Damen into the Shadowland.   Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick—and 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, Ever’s connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before…

Ok I have to start out by saying that I did not hate this book , but I wasn't to fond of it either. The plot was okay. There wasn't much happening in this book. I was bored during half of this book. The only reason I think I read this series is for Damen. When he is out of the picture, this book is nothing special. The beginning of this book had a fast pace but that ended and was not found again until the very end. In my opinion, this book was a waste. There were a lot of things that had me saying "Seriously? Was that really necessary?". Nothing drastic happened in the plot and I can only hope things speed back up in Dark Flame.

The characters- Ughhh I really do not like Ever. I just cannot stand her. She is constantly messing things up and just plain acting stupid. I can only hope she grows up in the next book. Damen saves the book. If it wasn't for him those first few chapters, I probably would not have read this book. He's just so romantic and so perfect. Roman was the typical villain. Jude was pretty believable. I did not share Ever's attracting to him just because of his appearance. I mean, seriously dreadlocks? Is that the best you can do? Especially with Damen nearby. Aside from Ever, every character was believable and had a great and unique personality.

The Ending of Shadowland was a shock to me. After 200 wasted pages, the ending left me in awe. The awe started because of excitement but then I was in awe over Ever's stupidity. Ever should seriously know by know that Damen knows best. 

My Favorite Part: Damen! And Jude's personality- it brightened the entire book :)  

Do I recommend this book? Only if you want to see more Damen and want to keep reading this series.
Will I be reading the sequel? I don't really know why, but yes. I keep believeing this series is going to get better.

Thank you for reading! I love your comments, so feel free to leave me a comment! I really enjoy hearing what people think and love getting recommendations!
