"Ever and Damen's journey has been an awesome treat, so fans may greet this final book in the series with bittersweet enthusiasm. But like the previous installments, EVERLASTING will thrill readers with its spicy romance, profound ideas and intense drama. Alyson Noël's writing talents really shine here, and her words surge with emotion. She offers interesting symbolism and deep insight into life's mysteries that will leave teens contemplating these ideas long after the last page is turned. She uses the story-within-a-story technique with the telling of Ever's first life, creating a brief interval in the existing drama to see how the characters' lives all first interacted centuries ago. Her imagination also delivers wondrous visions of Summerland on Ever's difficult journey, and she wraps up the entire series in a conclusion that will bring a sigh of satisfaction. Even though this is the end of the Immortals series, fans will be impatiently waiting to see what Alyson Noël has in store for them next."
—Chris Shanley-Dillman, Teen Reads
"Wonderful story. Since book one Ever and Damen's journey has been a very bumpy road—but also a spectacular one as well. EVERLASTING is a great ending to the series. I was very pleased with how things ended and I think fans of this series will be too. Actually I adored the very ending, Ms. Noël has done a incredible job of wrapping this up."

"Ever since I started reading EVERMORE back in 2009, I fell in love with the series. I just couldn't wait for the day for the last book to come out and to find out Ever and Damen's fate and what was going to happen. When EVERLASTING arrived, I devoured it in one sitting. I just couldn't stop reading it...I was very satisfied with the ending of the book...THE IMMORTALS series has had evil characters, likable characters, but most of all, an amazing story written by an amazing author who has shown she has an amazing writing ability...THE IMMORTALS series and EVERLASTING are a great addition to any library and I can't wait what Alyson Noël comes up with in her next books."
—5 Stars, The Book Mermaid
"Let me say that this is by far the best series I have ever read. From the first book, until the final, the characters have truly grown. Noël does it beautifully in her final novel in the Immortal Series, due to the wonderful plot and adventures EVERLASTING really wraps things up nicely due to all the journeys Ever has to go through. It blew my expectations (2x). The ending was AMAZING, beautifully written. Thanks to Alyson Noël for creating a beautiful series, I cant wait until her next series comes out next year called SOUL SEEKERS!"

"This book kept me on the edge of my seat. Making me feel like I was breaking apart inside. I was shocked to find that at times it was Damen that I wanted to shake, but OMG did my heart ever break for him. This book will make you shed tears of joy one minute, then rip your heart out of your chest, stomp on it, make you scream out in agony, sob like you did the day you found out your first love wasn't love at all, then, after all of that, leave you peaceful and completely content. Now GO run along, take this journey with me. I promise the pain throughout is worth the payoff!"
"As I read through this last book, I began to realise just how young Ever was, and how much she had grown from the first time she met Damon. The way he brought her back out of her shell and you are showed just how far back their love goes and how deep it is. All I can really say is that the ending is perfect and I felt a little bit teary eyed near the end...Having been taken on their journey from the first time they met in this life, you feel linked and connected to the characters—I didn't realise I felt that way so much. For me, Ever is much more likeable in this book. I already liked her, but she seemed much more wiser, and more her own person. Able to realise what she had to do, and have the balls to go and do it. I love this series. I got the ending that I wanted, and I'm pretty sure every other reader of The Immortals series, wanted."
—Charlotte Ford Reviews
"Oh my gosh, I love this series. And I'm so sad to see it end. But I do have to say, I loved the way the series ended. I thought it has a very unique ending. I love the relationship between Damen and Ever. This is one of the best love stories I have read in a long time, it might even be better then Twilight. 'gasp!' I thought the way it ended was awesome, and I have to admit, it's not how I imagined Alyson Noël to end it at all."

"I love the way Alyson Noël writes, and her characters are so able to get involved with. I'll miss this series, but I'm sure she'll come out with more great things soon! A must read series!!!!!!"
—The Darker Side Reviews
"I must say that I am sad to see the series end—as a long time reader of Alyson Noël's and a big fan of The Immortal series [I feel] that this book ended nicely. All loose ends were tied. All questions, were answered. And the first chapter was so dynamic and strong that I sat reading this book in my office while at work...I felt every emotion, excitement, hurt, and anger while reading this. Simply fantastic! If you haven't picked up this series you most definitely should! Not only will you fall in love with it, but it will give you an everlasting read worth reading. Am I happy with the way it ended? Yes. I think Ms. Noël did a mighty find job on clearing everything she needed to clear up in order to finish the series."

"Everlasting is a strong finish to the Immortals saga...Alyson Noël soars with this one."
—Midwest Book Review
"A truly amazing read, a fantastic end to a truly wonderful series."
"...The book ties up all the plot threads and the story draws back a step
to show the bigger picture - the journey of the soul and the meaning
of life and true love. The ending completely took me by surprise. I
had my suspicions about what might happen but yet again Noel threw in
several curveballs to keep me guessing right up to the very end . . . I'm
very excited about Alyson Noel's new Soul Seekers series and if it's only
half as good as the Immortals then it'll be a winner with me!"
