Booktalk #1

The first book in The Immortals series introduces Ever, who after surviving a car crash that killed her parents and sister, has the ability to see people’s auras and hear their thoughts.  At her new school in Southern California, she tries to drown out the distractions by wearing a hoodie and keeping the volume up on her ipod. Then she meets Damen, a new student who has the ability to quiet the psychic chaos around her. He is, of course, gorgeous and Ever is fiercely attracted to him, even though her best friend Haven has called “dibs” on him.  Damen’s mysterious ability to pull flowers out of mid air, disappear at a moment’s notice, and never really eat has Ever wondering if he’s a vampire.  He also can see the ghost of her sister, who haunts Ever on a daily basis.  When Ever finds out the truth about Damen, as well as herself, she is faced with a decision that will determine her destiny.  This compulsively readable story is followed by Blue Moon, Shadowland and Dark Flame.  (Book Talk Author: Sharon Nehls, The Colorado Blue Spruce Award nominee 2012)

Booktalk #2

Ever has just lost her family in a tragic accident. She was the sole survivor of her family and it is messing with her head. Since the accident, she can read people’s aura’s and hear their thoughts. Ever keeps to herself and has become an outcast at school. Then she meets Damen, and her whole world changes. When she is around Damen, the world seems to melt away, the world feels quieter and she just feels better. It probably doesn’t hurt that he is the hottest guy at school.  Together Damen and Ever fall deeply in love and he teaches her how to reign in her thoughts and not get too overwhelmed with everything she’s experiencing. Damen seems to know so much about her and leads her to a better understanding of herself and her new found powers.  What happens though when she starts to understand herself more, does she really want to know what she finds out?
