Book Review - Dark Flame by Alyson Noel (Book4 Immortals Series) MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS

Dark Flame (Immortals, Book 4)Number of Pages : 320

Publisher : Macmillan

My review : 3 out of 10

Ever is trying to help Haven transition into life as an immortal.  But with Haven drunk on her new powers and acting recklessly, she poses the ultimate threat—exposing their secret world to the outside.  As Ever struggles to keep the Immortals hidden, it only propels Haven closer to the enemy—Roman and his evil companions

At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magick to free Damen from Roman’s power. But when her spell backfires, it binds her to the one guy who’s hell-bent on her destruction. Now there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can’t stop thinking about Roman—and longing for his touch.  As she struggles to resist the fiery attraction threatening to consume her, Roman is more than willing to take advantage of her weakened state…and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.
Frantic to break the spell before its too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, risking everything she knows and loves to save herself—and her future with Damen …

I did not enjoy this one as much as I did book one.  For me, the story just did not progress and I felt that it tended to repeat the same things a lot.  The main character, Ever, frustrated me a lot with this book where she keeps making wrong decisions that are really obvious.  I am continuing to read this series but only really to find out whether something explosive really does happen that might change my mind....
