"Noël continues to offer a satisfying brew of fantasy with genuine and engagingly promoted ethical questions in this third volume in the Immortals series."
"The third installment of the Immortals series by Alyson Noël is breath-taking... This third installment is to die for. You will not want to miss this!"
"I really enjoyed SHADOWLAND . . .Ms. Noël does an excellent job deepening the mystery of the Immortals and what exactly Roman wants, other than to make Ever and Damen's lives miserable... With the addition of the mysterious Jude, surfer and owner of the crystal shop, we finally get a glimpse into Ever's surprising past lives, lives which Damen may not have truthfully portrayed before. Are Ever and Damen truly destined to be together or has he chased after her unmercifully for centuries? And what role does Jude have in her lifepast and present? . . .Ms. Noël never fails to leave things with an immense cliffhanger and SHADOWLAND is no different. With Ever's life changing decision, more things hang in the balance, much to Roman's sick delight. I can't wait to see what Ms. Noël has in store for us with the next book in the series out in 2010."
4.5 Stars, Enchanting Reviews
"This is the third book in the in the Immortals series . . .There is much that is happening in this story. Jude is a great addition to the series. I look forward to seeing where the next book Dark Flame is going to go. It will be out Summer of 2010."
5 Stars, Lyra Rose
"SHADOWLAND wastes no time jumping into the thick of the plot. Alyson Noël prompts the reader to think about human nature, immortality, karma and fate. This is not a superficial young adult book, SHADOWLAND will inspire deep thought. . .The Immortals is a series to watch. The characters have depth and interesting motivations, while the plot brings up age old questions that will leave the reader thinking, long after the last page has turned."
"Noël continues to keep readers in suspense up until the very end. I'm a sucker for true love, so I find myself torn after reading this installment and I can't wait to see how Noël spends Dark Flame."
4 Stars, Fantastic Book Review
"I loved both EVERMORE and Blue Moon, but Alyson Noël has truly outdone herself with SHADOWLAND. There was more twists and turns and there were so many things that I didn't expect to happen, just like BLUE MOON. this series just keeps getting better. They are all magnificently and beautifully written. I'm dying for the next book!"
"Once again, Alyson Noël has jam packed the novel with so much activity. . .The spark from the first two books is transformed into a smoldering flame that is impossible to not get drawn into. . .Finally, I will neverno matter how many of her books I readbe able to anticipate Noël's constant surprises. How she can come up with so many unseen, shocking twists I'll never know. She is a master at leaving the reader wanting more. Summer 2010 is far too long a wait for the next installment in Ever and Damen's adventures. If you haven't read this series yet, I highly suggest you do so now. With the plot and characters improving book by book, there's nowhere for this series to go but up."
5 Stars-Chick Lit Teens
"So many twists and turns were in SHADOWLAND, and I almost couldn't keep up! I have never been more unexpectedly surprised by an author. Noël knows exactly how to keep me enthralled in her books. I can only imagine what she has in store for Dark Flame, the next in the series. SHADOWLAND is purely mesmerizing. A book with a little bit of everything in itromance, suspense, friendship, and immortalityall meshed together to create a mind-blowing combination. Only the next book in the series will satisfy my need to know what will happen next. I simply cannot wait!"
4 Stars, The Book Blogger
". . . I love the direction that SHADOWLAND takes. More characters are introduced, including one that may get between Ever and Damen. Like BLUE MOON, it ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, which will leave teens counting down the days until the next book is released."
5 Minutes for Books (review on the audio version)
"SHADOWLAND is a good continuation in the Immortal's series . . . Deep concepts peek through a story line clearly geared towards teens and young adults. Making this an interesting read for any age. I am looking forward to the next installment, Dark Flame coming out Summer 2010."

That Chick That Reads
"It was easy to fall back into Ever and Damen's world and get caught up in their epic love story. Author Alyson Noël keeps up the twists and turns and she never ceases to surprise me . . . SHADOWLAND explores the magical world Ever and Damen are part of in more depth and the subjects of reincarnation, spells, and fate are explored in more detail in this offering. I really liked learning more about how the magic works in this world and the intricacies Alyson Noël added were lots of fun to read about. The ending of this one will keep you turning pages and eagerly awaiting the next volume. SHADOWLAND is another exciting and addicting read in The Immortals series. Alyson Noël knows how to keep her readers hanging and it's easy to see how this series is continually gaining new readers. Once you start reading about Ever and Damen, you won't want to stop!"
4 Stars, TeensReadToo
"Alyson Noël's distinctive ability to pique a reader's curiosity and never let go perseveres in this third book of her awesome series. One way she accomplishes this is by coming up with new, exciting and completely unexpected twists, turns and twirls of her plot. She also paints her characters with such vivid details that they remain fixed in one's memory as if they were real people. But the story doesn't bombard the reader with intensity all the time; Noël lightens the nonstop drama with occasional sparks of humor. Fans will be excited to learn that she is hard at work on the fourth Immortals book, which is scheduled for a Summer 2010 release."
"Alyson Noël's SHADOWLAND is the third in the Immortals series and the darkest to date. Ever and Damen's struggle against the dark side of immortality is fraught with setbacks and frightening choices. The addition of Jude creates an intriguing triangle to the story, and Roman remains a menacing threat throughout. Fans of Ms. Noël's Immortals will enjoy the latest of Ever and Damen's journey and eagerly await the next story. If you're new to the Immortals, read the first two, EVERMORE and BLUE MOON, before jumping into SHADOWLAND."
