Sunday Sequels (9)

Sunday sequels is one of my newest memes. Every Sunday, I'll post covers, news, or other stuff about sequels in a popular series. This week I'm going to talk about Dark Flame, the fourth book in the Immortals series. 

Dark Flame by Alyson Noel
Release Date: June 22, 2010
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.

Personally, I'm not crazy about this series. I've only read the first two books, and I might read the third. I just thought that this was a pretty awesome cover. :D

I'm with you on this series. I thought the first was OK, the second slightly less OK and the third pretty bad. But, as a glutton for punishment, I will read the next one. I hope very much that something actually happens in this one. Happy reading!

I pretty much hated this series from the beginning. The first book was bad, the second book was worse... and the third book is going to stay unread by me because I'm not that much of a masochist. (I haven't seen many positive reviews of it at all!)

I do like the covers. But this cover for Dark Flame is the first one that sort of falls flat for me. It looks kind of... well, like a project for a Photoshop class. The previous three covers are really nice, though.
