"Dark Flame is the best installment in this series yet, ending in a very shocking way that leaves high promise for the next book. The readers' appetite will be whetted for more, the constant addictive craving Noël seems to infuse in every book continuing to guarantee her strong readership. The characters are advanced and developed, the plot progressed and the continued possibilities opened. Numerous new questions and intrigues spark, and the overall feelings toward certain characters shift in a constant flow. Noël includes plenty of surprising twists, unexpected tie ins and histories, and never lets the reader know what else she has planned. The predictability present at the beginning of the series is gone, leaving only a burning need for more."
A Good Addiction
"The very talented Noël knows how to hook her readers and take them on a thrill ride. The Immortals series is an addicting anthology that keeps you wanting more. An absolute phenomenon in teen fiction. She is an exceptional author with talent that captivates all readers. Dark Flame is a story of sacrifice and lovea well-developed plot, exhilarating characters, and teenage angst. What more can you ask for? An excellent read!"

"Alyson Noël is back... Dark Flame returns readers to the high expectations of The Immortals series."
5 Stars, TeensReadToo
"Alyson Noël has done it again! Dark Flame was every bit as good as Evermore and Blue Moon, if not better...The same hypnotic writing, intense relationships, and plot twists that I loved in Evermore are at play here... Dark Flame signals the return of this series to must-read status."
I'd So Rather Be Reading
"This is the fourth book in The Immortals series by Alyson Noël, and all I can really say is wow. This is definitely the best book yet. Hands down. While I have enjoyed the first three, I wasn't as into them as I have been other series, but after Shadowland, which was also great, and now Dark Flame, I am a full-fledged fan... I'm so excited that this book was this good, and I can't wait until the next one comes out this winter, I would definitely recommend this to all my friends."
"Dark Flame is the fourth installment in Alyson Noël's The Immortals series, and the intensity just keeps growing. Her writing style sizzles with energy and passion, creating a driving force that compels the reader through the pages. She seems to have an endless supply of exciting and creative ideas that keeps the series fresh. Her characters continue to fascinate, with their strengths and weaknesses, their refreshing diversities and unexpected uniformities, plus a few of them meet up with some big changes in this book, adding to the compelling factors of the series. Noël also proposes some thought-provoking ideas, like karma, and the belief that focusing on the positive brings about positive results. These ideas are sure to give readers something to think about long after the last page is turned. Noël sure knows how to write a winner!"
Chris Shanley, TeenReads
"I have to hand it to Alyson Noël, she can write a teenage character really well. I really wanted to slap some sense into our leading lady Ever quite a few times. I loved how Alyson Noël doesn't make Ever into an "adult" just because she is supernatural, after all she is still a teenager without a lot of life experiences to build on. Ever makes a lot of mistakes and doesn't always trust the right people or know when to ask for help, sound like any teenagers you know? Ever has evolved over the series though, with each book she gains more understanding of the world around her and her place in it. The conflicts in this book fit nicely into the series and the book finishes off on a bit of a cliffhanger. Another page turner in The Immortals series, Dark Flame is not to be missed!"
