Review: Night Star (The Immortals #5) by Alyson Noel

Synopsis: After fighting for centuries to be together, Ever and Damen’s future hinges on one final showdown that will leave readers gasping for breath. Don’t miss this explosive new installment of the #1 bestselling series that’s enchanted millions across the world!

Haven still blames Ever for the death of her boyfriend Roman, no matter how hard Ever’s tried to convince her it was an accident. Now she’s determined to take Ever down…and destroy Damen and Jude along the way. Her first step is to tear Ever and Damen apart—and she has just the ammunition to do it.

Hidden in one of Ever’s past lives is a terrible secret about Damen—a secret that illuminates new facts about her relationship with Jude, but that’s so dark and brutal it might be enough to drive her and Damen apart once and for all. As Ever faces her greatest fears about the guy she wants to spend eternity with, she’s thrust into a deadly clash with Haven that could destroy them all.

Now it’ll take everything she’s got—and bring out powers she never knew she had—to face down her most formidable enemy. But in order to win, she must first ask herself: is her own survival worth dooming Haven to an eternity of darkness in the Shadowland? And will learning the truth about Damen’s past hold the key to their future? Source
Plot: I'm finally getting the chance to catch up on my reviews, so bear with me! With finishing the fifth installment of the Immortals, I'm glad the series is ending soon. I like the series and when it does come on the big screen, I will see it. But, I feel like the series was stretched out for too long. We're on the fifth book and Damen and Ever still haven't gotten the potion. Ever keeps saying time and time again that the universe and destiny want Damen and her to be together. If that were true, wouldn't destiny or the universe throw you a bone instead of having every situation you're getting close to the potion shatter by someone or something? But, I digress. I will say that Night Star was the toughest to get through. It took forever for something to happen between Ever and Haven. I was hoping for something to happen. I wasn't disappointed in the climax of the story, but I was expecting the outcome. However, it's nice that finally they're getting somewhere and dealing with each issue in their lives.
Characters: Ever - I like Ever. She does make mistakes and at times I do chastise her actions, but she is a normal Immortal girl. When she found out one of Damen's secrets, she wasn't happy with him. She couldn't believe what he did and even though she still loved him, she was angry at him.
Damen - Damen is a sweetheart. But, I want to more about him. We hear about his past from time to time, but I want to know the complete story. Hopefully, we'll get to know everything in the last installment. But, I felt Damen is still holding some things back from Ever.

Cover: I love the Immortals series covers, they're always stunning. I just didn't know how this one related to the book. I know the girl is Ever, but I'm not sure if she's looking at her Night Star or if she's looking at a potion or...I'm not sure.
Overall Rating: I give this book a two out of four. I wasn't feeling this book and felt it dragged. I can't wait to read Everlasting to see how the series ends, but I think I have a hunch. I would give this series a try, I know a lot of people have different feelings on this series. So, I would read the first and see if you want to read the rest.
Peace and Fangs,
