Dark Flame by Alyson Noel

At the start of this mesmerizing new installment of the Immortals series, Ever is helping her friend Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and carelessly putting them all at risk, their friendship becomes more and more strained. At the same time, Ever delves deeper into magick in order to get control over her enemy Roman and free Damen from his power. But when the spell she casts on Roman backfires, she’s bound to her deadliest enemy. Frantic to reverse the spell the moment the moon enters a new phase, she finds her efforts are fruitless—there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, one that propels her toward Roman. Desperate to break free of this terrible curse before Damen or the twins can discover what she’s done, she turns to Jude and delves deeper and deeper into dark magick, ultimately risking everything she knows and loves—including Damen.

Right now, I'm beginning to be sort of in the middle with the Immortals series. As I'm reading, all that is happening is basically nothing. Dark Flame felt really short. I really liked the idea of having Haven turn Immortal and her siding with Roman, but nothing exciting is ever happening in this book and Ever is just becoming more annoying than ever.

I'm beginning to see that Ever's character is not changing and I don't think it ever will. Damen now is just become a very weak character and is no longer in the picture a lot. In Evermore through Shadowland, Damen was a lot in the story and I loved that, but now, it's only Ever and Roman.

There wasn't any big cliffhanger ending at the end that made me gasp and bite my nails off until the next book came out. It was sort of obvious what was going to happen in the next book.

Even though the story wasn't that good, the cover was. I loved it so much, I was in love with it.  I am going to be reading Night Star, but my expectations aren't going to be as high any longer. But if you are enjoying the Immortals series and didn't like Dark Flame as much, don't give up.  Try Night Star, I know I am and I will be reading the last book just to see what will happen in the end.
