"I don't lose patience with you, I don't judge you, I just love you, plain and simple."
~ Damen to Ever
Ever Bloom is the main, female protagonist of the series. She is an immortal turned by Damen Auguste, thus being brought back to life after having a near-death experience.
Ever is very beautiful. She reaches the height of 5'8". She has defined facial structure. Her utterly-flawless skin is very pale, though slightly tanned, and looks airbrushed. She has a scar on the left part of her face maybe above her eyebrow from the accident, but it disappeared in Evermore. All the books speak of her having a perfect, slightly toned, but strong, physique as a side-effect of the elixir, which creates an effortlessly goddess-like look to anyone who drinks it.
Ever has long, pale gold blonde hair which stops shy of her waist. She pulls it back into a low ponytail and hides it under a hood most of the time before Blue Moon, as it was one of her many vanities before the accident. Her eyes are bright blue, and are known to look slightly darker with her emotions. She doesn't wear makeup until later books when she gets rid of her hoodie and iPod, too.
The second book speaks of her growing exponentially, and by the end of the day having to get longer jeans than the ones she put on at the beginning of the day which fit perfectly, if not too long. Eventually, when she learns to drown out everybody's mental narrative and focuses to stop seeing auras, she dresses a little more femininely and more similarly to how she did before the accident.
Because of her immortality, she doesn't age and is forever young and beautiful - but in Dark Flame, she turns 17.
"I mean I may have been popular and a cheerleader but I was never a bitch".
~ Ever commenting on her previous life.
Ever was very vain in her previous life, and eager to sleep with her boyfriend, Brandon. She cared only about being a cheerleader and was very content with her place in her high school caste system. While she didn't outright bully the less popular students, she never gave them much notice.After the accident, she became a depressed and guilt-ridden teenager - a shadow of her former self. She was consumed by guilt for her family's deaths, and wondered why she was the only one to have survived. The burden of her abilities added even more turmoil for Ever. She tried desperately to blend into her new surroundings, constantly wearing baggy clothes, sunglasses, and her iPod turned up to numb her powers.
As soon as she got to her new school, Ever immediately befriended Miles and Haven, who were outcasts like her. Being a "foreigner" in California didn't provide any relieve, and it only made her feel more isolated from her peers. If not for Miles and Haven, Ever would've been alone.
"But I'm not a local. I'm a Oregonian. Which means I'm used to my pre-Spring weather being much more more, well, pre-Spring-like. You know, globs of rain, overcast skies, and plenty of mud. Like a real spring. Not this hot, weird, natural, summer hybrid, that tries to pass as spring."
~ Ever on her utter dislike of California's weather as opposed to Oregon's.
She is willing to give up anything for her old life, including Damen. When he entered her life and told her everything about what they were, Ever became less depressed - his mere presence helped to tune out the voices and energies of other people; He made her feel normal and much less lonely. After killed she Drina, her guilt was lessened as she accepted that Drina was responsible for the accident - this let her open her heart to him fully. At the end of Evermore, Ever finally commits herself to Damen and becomes an Immortal to be with him for eternity.
Unlike Damen, she can reincarnate, however she cannot recall all of her past lives like him. This is something that frustrates her, as Ever would like to know more about their history together.
“It's my fifth chakra. My weak link. I suck at discernment, misuse of information, and, apparently trust all the wrong people who've been faithful all along."
~ Ever explaining how Roman was able to trick her.
As she begins to learn about chakras, Ever realizes that her fifth chakra is her weakest. By the end of Night Star, however, she lets that part of herself go and is able to trust her instincts implicitly. Ever holds major insecurities when it comes to the intimate part of her relationship with Damen, due to her vast inexperience. However, he is kind and patient with her understanding her feelings and respects them, wholeheartedly. Despite her faults, Ever is an extremely loyal and loving friend to her two best friends in her new life, Miles and Haven.
Ever and Damen meet late into her Junior year of high school. She is immediately attracted to him and feels a strong sense of recognition whenever he is near her, especially in his eyes. Ever quickly discovers that he has no aura and that she can't read his thoughts, much to her confusion. Ever also realizes that when he touches or speaks to her, he instantly quiets all of the psychic energy that she tries so hard to block out, her feelings for him grow.
During Halloween Ever and her aunt throw a party, where she dresses up as Marie Antoinette. Through she doesn't invite him, Damen turns up as her costume's lover - Axel von Fersen - and they kiss. Haven, who also has a crush on him, sees this. Ever is unsure of how to pursue her relationship with him. He soon begins to woo Ever; and begins to take her out on various dates.
On their first date, the two skip school and he takes her to Disneyland. For their second date, the two skip school again and to go to lunch at a race track, where they use their psychic powers to bet on the winning horses. After she wins an eight hundred dollar bet, Damen buys her a crystal horse-shoe bit bracelet to commemorate their date. She is delighted by the gift, but makes sure that the crystals in the bracelet are not diamonds, as she doesn't want him to spend so much money on her.
When the second date is over, Ever realizes that her feelings for Damen are deepening, but she is still reluctant to fully open up to him and feels guilty as Haven, her best friend, is also attracted to him. On their third date, he takes Ever out to the beach. It is here that he shows her a cave where he keeps many of his things, such as a surf board, wet suits, and towels. Ever starts to feel incredibly comfortable with him, to the point where she almost sleeps with him; she stops herself, not wanting to loose her virginity in such a rushed way.
Damen soothes her saying he can wait, and tells her just to sleep. By the end of the night she does admit to herself however that she has truly fallen in love with him and happily falls asleep in his arms. When she wakes up the next morning she is alone and reads a note; Damen left her saying that he went surfing. Ever searches the beach, but doesn't find him. Deeply upset, she goes home. She is not at her house long before Damen arrives at her front door soaking wet, claiming to have been surfing like his note said. Ever is suspicious and confronts him about leaving her alone in the cave and he apologizes for leaving her. Ever, though, believes he abandoned her because she wouldn't sleep with him. She is still unsure about how true Damen's feelings are for her; however, Ever forgives him but remains extremely suspicious.
A few days later, Ever goes to his house, more suspicious than ever. She goes to his special room and sees Haven, near death, with Damen supposedly drinking her blood.Ever, furious and desperate to save her friend, rushes to Haven; Damen holds her back. Before she can get to Haven, as she won't stop fighting him, Damen knocks her unconscious. She wakes up the next day with little memory of the weekend; Damen convinces her he gave her a surfing lesson. However, Ever soon remembers Damen drinking Haven's blood and confronts him. It is then that Damen reveals the truth to her: he is a Immortal and that he wasn't killing Haven, but saving her. He goes on the explain that the tattoo that she had gotten had become extremely infected and he was sucking out the blood from the area. Ever is in complete shock from this revelation and starts to flee. Damen makes everyone in the school pass out so he can talk to Ever but more frightened than ever, she continues to run.
Ever goes to the parking lot and desperately asks Damen to leave her alone.
She bitterly starts to yell at him, saying that he should of let her die and blames Damen because he brought her back to life he is the reason she is burdened with psychic powers she never wanted.
Damen tries to explain but his words fall on deaf ears.
Ever angrily tells him that she hates him and that she never wants to see him again. He sadly asks her to reconsider, pleading with Ever not to say such things unless she truly means them.
She once again yells at Damen to leave her alone and hatefully flings off the bracelet he bought her and throws it on the ground. Deeply upset, but obeying her request, Damen disappears, leaving a red tulip in his place.
Ever soon turns to vodka to block out not only her psychic powers but her pain over breaking up with Damen. Free of her psychic baggage Ever becomes much like the person she was in Oregon.
Her friends however become worried about her especially Miles, Ever not willing to yet part with her new addiction ignores Miles's concerns.
Ever's drinking problem soon becomes very serious, she takes a water bottle full of vodka to school.
The most popular and ruthless girl in school Stacia Miller catches her she takes a picture of her drinking and sends it to the principal because of this Ever is suspended, also Sabine becomes increasingly strict and worried.
Knowing that alcohol isn't an answer for her to quiet her abilities Ever travels to Ava's house.
Ava graciously helps Ever create a psychic shield, it works instantly and she is thrilled that she can be normal again.Ava quickly tells her that she may want to be able to restore the shield.
However Ever is so happy that she is no longer burdened by her powers she leaves Ava's home without a second thought determined to live a normal life.
During the Winter Solstice, Ever decides to go to a party in a canyon with Miles and Haven.
Drina then appears, revealing she sent Haven to the wrong canyon, tried to kill her, has killed Ever in all of her reincarnations, and is Damen's wife. Drina seriously injures Ever, but she heals quickly and Drina realizes that Ever has Immortal abilities, now.Desperate she hits Drina back then she sees a veil of light and out of options steps through it.
Ever lands in a beautiful field of pulsating, trees and flowers.
She sees Damen, and thinks she is dead. Ever starts to panic however he quickly reassures her and says she isn't dead she is in Summerland; a in-between dimension where souls who do not cross over stay.
He says that he sensed her distress and created the veil of light back in the canyon.
Damen explains once again that he is Immortal and made her one as well.
He goes on to say that thoughts are energy in Summerland and that all a person has to do is think of something and it will appear. Ever soon manifests and is in awe of the simplicity of it.
She forgives Damen however she still isn't sure about getting back together with him.
Damen understands and reiterates that he willing to wait and goes on to explain his relationship with Drina.
After Ever listens to the whole story she is overwhelmed and uncertain.
Damen calms her.
He takes her in his arms and rertiates that he is willing to wait for her to make up her mind.
"I have to go, But Ever, if you want to love me, if you truly want to be with me, then you'll have to accept what we are. I'll understand if you can't.” Damen explaining to Ever she must embrace who they are if she wants to be with him
Damen gives her back her bracelet kisses her softly on her forehead and promptly dissapears.
The next thing she knows Ever is alone in her room.
On Valentine's Day Ever still hasn't made a decision on Damen.
However she finally accepts the fact that Riley doesn't belong on the earth plane any longer and asks her to move on.
Tearfully but happily Riley does move on and promises to look in on Ever saying that she will send her a sign.
Before Ever can ask what type of sign to look for Riley crosses over.
Devastated she breaks down in her living room once again mourning her sister.
Once she calms down Ever suddenly realizes that she was always in love with Damen she just could never admit it to herself.
She closes her eyes and telepathically professes her love for him hoping that he will come to her.
However when she opens her eyes, Damen isn't there and Ever fears that she may of been too late.
Defeated Ever goes to her kitchen Drina suddenly appears she callously explains she is going to kill her so she can have Damen all to herself and also confesses that it was her who caused the car accident that killed her family.
After this revelation Ever terrified thinks about grabbing a knife, unfortunately Drina reads her mind and easily evades her feeble attempts at fighting back.
She then attacks Ever by throwing her to the ground, and also psychically tortures her by creating the illusion that her head in a vice.
Weak and bleeding Ever thinks about giving up she passes out momentarily.
However Ever soon comes to and the knowledge that Drina was the one who killed her family gives her strong resolve.
This bitch killed my family and now she's gonna pay~ Ever's thoughts moments before she delivers her unknown death blow to Drina
With blind determination Ever throws a weak punch which lands square in Drina's chest.
In a instant Damen appears by Ever's side, and says to Drina that it is over.
Drina defiant to the end begs Damen to help her but he doesn't, he takes Ever's hand softly and tells Drina that it is time for her to go.
Drina yells in despair and quickly crumbles into a pile of dust, her clothes and shoes on the floor the only evidence that she ever existed.
Ever is dumbfounded, Damen tenderly kisses her and again reassures her that Drina is gone and forever out of their lives.
She questions how her weak punch could of killed Drina.
Damen explains that she hit Drina in her most vulnerable charaka, her heart charaka; the epitome of unconditional love, compassion and higher self.
After years of selfish and vindictive living Drina had no love left and didn't think to protect it.
Damen is equally astonished that it worked knowing that it was a theory but had no idea that it could be a way to kill a Immortal.
He goes on to say that he knows about Riley and again comforts Ever saying that it was the right thing to do.
Ever says that she missed him but is still unwilling to say her true feelings out loud.
He starts to pull away but she begs him to never leave her again Damen promises he won't, and says that her feelings are best felt when they are spoken aloud.
She is still hesitant, Damen goes on to say that if she does become a Immortal she can never be with her family again and that is much more difficult to cross over once you seal your fate.
Ever is finally certain that she wants to spend the rest of her life with Damen, she tells him she loves him and seals her Immortal Fate.
Damen is thrilled and happily tells Ever he will teach her everything he knows.
It has been three weeks since Drina's death, Ever is now a newly turned Immortal and is very excited to learn everything she can about her growing powers, with Damen giving her unfailing support.
She and Damen are extremely happy and content together.
They are deeply relieved that Drina is out of their lives.
However Ever is suffering extreme anxiety about weather or not she can sleep with Damen giving his many conquests throughout the ages and lack of her own intimate experinces.
Damen is understanding about this but says that she must accept the fact that he cannot change his past.
She is still unsure however Damen reiterates that he is willing to wait for her to make up her mind.
Since the events of the last book Ever has dropped the shield that Ava helped her make. Because of this she is no longer immune to the pscyhic enegry people give off and relies on Damen's physcial contact more than ever to numb her ablitlies.
"When I look into his eyes well let's just say that I'm instantly overcome by this warm, wonderful magnetic pull---like it's just him and I and everything else has ceased to exist. Damen's like my perfect psychic shield. My ultimate other half. And even when we can't be together, the telepathic thoughts and images, he sends provide the same calming effect." ~ Ever describing how Damen's mere presence makes him the perfect psychic safeguard.
The next day the couple are soon introduced to Roman who arrives at Bayview High School as a seemingly handsome new student from London England.
Everyone in the school and Ever's circle welcomes him with open arms.
Ever it seems is the only one uncomfortable around him she doesn't know why she just knows that she gets a very bad feeling whenever she is around him.
She puts her unpleasantness in Roman aside in order to focus more on her relationship with Damen.
During their english class Damen suggests that on Friday that they go somewhere special.
Ever quickly says she wants to visit Summerland, Damen however stops her and says that he wasn't talking about Summerland but he does promise her that they will return to there soon.
He goes on to explain that they rent a hotel suite, she quickly protests saying that Friday is the day of MIles's debut in Hairspray. Damen then says that they can go after the play, Ever is still unsure and tells him she will think about it.
After school on the same day she and Damen are in her room.
Ever curiously asks him more about their past lives together since he has clear memories of them and she doesn't. Damen complies with her request half-heartedly, telling Ever that he doesn't like to look back to the past and instead enjoys to focus on this life.
In the middle of him telling Ever about the day that they first met she sees that Damen looks at her for just an instant without a single hint of recognition and goes onto say that his head is bothering him.
This alarms Ever greatly seeing as an Immortal Damen shouldn't get sick.
Damen assures her he is fine he drinks more of the elixir and again tells a worried Ever that he is all right.
Changing the subject Damen brings up the idea of them traveling to Summerland.
Ever is still concerned for Damen saying that they should wait until he is feeling better, through Damen insists.
Quickly tempted by the mystical dimension Ever finally agrees to the couple's journey to Summerland, despite her fear for Damen's well being.
Damen tries to create the portal to take them there but he can't.
This once again worries both Damen and Ever seeing as Damen couldn't never remember not making the portal.
Ever suggests that both of them try.
Damen is hesitant but Ever is persistent.
Eventually he acquiesces and tells Ever to get on the floor and sit in the lotus position in order to regulate her chi. Ever does.
After a few minutes Damen tells her to picture a veil of shimmering golden light, they both do.
Unfortunately nothing happens.
Both are dismayed and Ever questions why it didn't work.
She then suggests that they both try and do it again together.
Damen goes on to explain that they both were doing it together, he soon dismisses the idea of them trying to create the portal again.
Ever is disappointed but understanding, she quickly changes tact by telling him to book a room for them at a hotel of his choosing implying that she is finally ready to sleep with him.
Damen is delighted and happily says that he will take care of it.
As Friday looms Ever gets herself prepared.
Despite the large qualites of psychic engery she knows will be there Ever goes to the mall.
"Through I refuse to wear my hoodie and sunglasses to block out the noise like I used to. I'm done with looking like a freak. Instead, I narrow my focus to what's right in front of me, and block out all of the peripherals like Damen taught me to do." ~Ever explaining how she is able to cloak herself from her powers without Damen.
While at the mall Ever runs into Stacia Miller, in her haste to get away from her Ever trips over a lingere display and gets tangled in the clothing. Stacia catches all of this on her phone and promises Ever she is going to post it all over the Internet.
Putting her disastrous encouter with Stacia aside for the time being Ever helps the saleswoman in the store clean up the mess she made.
Afterward she picks out a dress to wear for Friday.
As a thanks for helping clean up the mess the salewoman at the store helps Ever pick out just the right pair of lingere.
Finally Friday comes around and Ever is very excited.
Damen picks her up at her house saying that he booked a suite for them at the Montage Hotel.
They both are equally delighted about finally be able to sleep togehter after waiting countless centuries.
The two then go to the musical.
As they are getting seated Ever notices that Haven is sitting next to Roman flirting with him.
She finds it odd considering Haven is in a relationship however she soon stops when her boyfriend comes back form the concession stand.
Ever quickly puts her annoyance with Haven and Roman aside and focuses on watching the musical and on finally spending the night with Damen.
After the musical Ever and Damen go back stage to congratulate Miles.
When Damen tries to manifest a bouquet for Miles he can't.
This once again alarms both of them and Ever again sees for just a second that Damen doesn't recognize her. Ever downplays this by manifesting a bouquet herself and she and Damen go backstage and happily congratulate Miles on his performance.
As they begin to leave Damen says that he is going to bring his car around and will be waiting for her outside. The two part both excited.
After she is done praising Miles Ever goes to the parking lot to meet Damen.
She is astounded however when Roman catches up to her saying that Damen found his car and left.
Ever is devatstated that Damen abandoned her on a night that was supposed to be so special to the two of them. She can't understand why he left without saying anything to her. Roman promptly offers her a ride home but Ever cooly declines.
Confused but thinking quickly she manifests a car and goes to the Montage hoping that Damen went on ahead there.
When Ever gets to the hotel and asks the desk clerk about Damen's reservation the clerk informs her that she cannot give out the information to her because she didn't make the reservation.
Annoyed she leaves The Montage.
Ever then travels to a cave on a nearby beach were she and Damen almost made love.
She doesn't find him there.
Knowing she has no choice now Ever calls Sabine and tells her that Damen canceled on her and she won't be able to make dinner.
She then tries to call Damen to have him explain but he doesn't answer her call.
Distraught Ever goes to Damen's house, heartbroken she goes to his speical room curls up on his velvet sofa and cries herself to sleep.
When Monday comes Ever is determined to talk to Damen, when she gets to school she attemps to speak with Damen about what happened on Friday. However she is floored to realize that when she tries to talk with him he compeltely ignores her.
Ever tries to speak with Damen again during their english class.
She is shocked to discover however that she has access to Damen's thoughts.
Running out of options Ever probes Damen's mind and her worst fears are realized; Damen has no memory of their relationship and thinks that Ever is a freak and loser.
Roman soon tells her that using his Immortal hyptionism he has driven all of the students, including Damen, Haven and Miles to believe that Ever is a freak, isolating her from everyone and everything. However none of the students realize what is going on, drawn to Roman allowing him to control them.
For the next month Ever has to endure the pain of once again being ostracized by her classmates.Without Damen for a shield she is forced to rely again on her iPod to drown out the constant thoughts of people around her.
Ever is determined to save Damen not knowing who to trust but having on choice she contacts psychic Ava.With her help they are able to create the portal and travel to Summerland. Once in Summerland, Ever meets twin girls Romy and Rayne. She thinks the twins are weird in the way they act; one positive, one negative.
Romy and Rayne are strange and Ever doesn’t trust them, but toward the end of the book Rayne reveals that she and her sister know Riley, and Riley asked Romy and Rayne to look after Ever; and Rayne says they know Damen, and that he helped them once.
The twins lead her to the Great Halls of Learning, where her answer lies.
They tell her Ever she must locate the Akashic Records explaining that they are a perment record of everything that has ever been said or thought or done or will ever be said, thought or done.
Thorugh they caution Ever by saying that she will locate the Akashic Records only if she is meant too. If she isn't then she won't.
Ever goes into the Halls and thankfully is able to find the Akashic Records.
The Records contian large crystal light screens which provide information she then asks the Records to tell her everything about Damen's past and the crystal screen that she is sitting in front of soon projects his memories onto it.
Ever quickly starts to see all of Damen's memories but is unable to watch Damen's early years of his and Drina's marriage and asks the Records that it just skip over it.
The Records rejects Ever and her screen is promptly wiped.
Frustrated by the set back she travels back to the earth plane.
Ever soon returns to Summerland and the Akashic Records now able to handle seeing Damen's life with Drina. WIth her new perspective The Records allows her acess to Damen's early childhood memories.
They then show her how Damen's parents died and the horrible abuse he suffered at the hands of the church.
Ever also finds out Roman's connection to him.
She discovers that Roman was one of the many orphans that Damen and Drina changed into Immortals during the sweep of the Black Death.
She furher discovers that Roman harbored a deep love for Damen's wife, Drina, however she never loved him back this caused Roman to become filled with jelaously and revenge thinking that if he just got Damen out of the way then he and Drina could be together, so he spent the next six hundred years plotting his revenge on Damen.
Roman confesses to Ever that he is the reason why Damen is acting strange.
Ever knows that there’s only one way to kill an immortal aim for their weakest chakra.
However according to Roman he knows another way to kill an immortal his way is to poison the elixir.
Ever knowing that when a person has been drinking the elixir for a while, they become dependent on it Roman’s poising the of elixir is reversing Damen's immortality and Ever knows that if she doesn't stop it she will loose him forever.
While in Summerland, Ever accidently uncovers access to a text revealing the workings of time.The text shows a spell and indicates a approaching Blue Moon as her only window for time travel.
Ever is forced to decide between staying in the present and saving Damen; or going back to the past and saving her family from that accident the claimed them.
She chooses to save her family
While sitting on the steps outside of the Great Hall of Learning Ever with Ava's help create a powerful new shield for her.
"So now, whenever I want to hear someone's thoughts I just surf over to their enegry field and hit "select. "
And when I don't want to be bothered I hit "mute."
It's just like the remote I have at home. Only this one is invisible so I can pretty much take it where ever I go."~Ever explains how the quantum remote works.
Because of the remote she is able to stop relying on her iPod to drown out unwanted psychic enegry.
With Ava’s help Ever uses herbs and makes new, poison-free elixir for Damen, even though she doesn’t believe it’ll be necessary.
As she is making the elixir, Ever begins to work on a theory: Once she goes back to her old life in Oregon, everything else will go back, so it’ll be like her life in California never even occurred
She is counting on Ava to pick up the pieces, and help Damen after she is gone.
Before Ever leaves she resloves on breaking Roman's hold over the school, she tries mulitple things to break his grip but nothing works.
Finally Ever tries a techinque she saw on a documentary about hyptontism.
"And I know it's my last chance, that if this doesn't work---- well--- I don't know what I will do.
So I close my eyes and yell:
Then I count from three to one and clap my hands twice at the end.
And then -- nothing.
The whole school goes silent as they slowly come to.
They rub their eyes, blinking, yawning, and stretching, as thorugh awakening form a very long nap. Gazing in confusion, wondering why they're on top of the table with the very same people they once deemed as freaks.
I can't help but smile, knowing the big happy family is back to their normal rountine, of name-calling, eye-rolling, and snubbing each other in favor of their usual cliques, returned to a world where animosity, and loathing still rule.
My school is back to normal again." ~ Ever finally breaks Roman's hypontic hold over the school and is extremely relieved to see that it has worked.
Quickly as she can Ever sadly yet subtley says her good-byes to Miles and Haven.
She then takes Damen to Ava's house and gets Damen to drink the posion-free exlir she made for him.
Ever then leaves him with Ava trusting her to look after him and contiune to feed him the exlir they made toegether.
Unrelenting Ever travels to Summerland and the Great Halls Of Learning.
Romy and Rayne are outside waiting for her and give her a cyrptic warning, but determined to go back to the past Ever ingnores them. She then rushes into the Halls.
"I'm ready I'm really and truly ready. So please, let me go back. Back to Eugene, Oregon. Back to my mom and dad, and Riley, and Buttercup. Please, just let me return....and set everything straight again..." ~ Ever requesting permisson form the Great Halls of Learning to travel back in time.The Halls immediately transfrom into a short hallway it leads her to an exact repilica of her old classroom back in Oregon.
As Ever slides into the desk a large crystal globe leviates before her, flickering. It shows a scene form her past
"I know this is my only opportunity I'll ever get to return. So I take a deep breath, press my finger to the screen--- and gasp as everything around me goes black." ~ Ever describes going back in time.
It takes less than an instant for Ever to time travel.
She goes to back to Eugene, and soon relives everything all over again: She babysits Riley while her parents go out as she had before the accident; and the next day she goes camping with her family.
While cleaning up their campsite, she can’t shake the feeling that something’s missing, or that there’s something she’s supposed to be doing, but she doesn’t know what that something is.
Riley approaches and tells Ever to hurry up, then she asks if Ever has her sky-blue Pinecone Lake cheerleading camp sweatshirt, which she had forgotten the first time around.
However, in her dad’s SUV on the way home, Riley somehow freezes time and says Ever can’t go back, that she can’t change the past.
Riley says it was destiny that she, Buttercup, and their parents were meant to die; Ever was meant to live.
Finally realizing that her place was always with Damen in Califorina, Ever goes back to the present and finds Damen.
When she get's to Damen's she finds Rayne in the basment and sees that she has made a circle to protect Damen and keep Ever out. Rayne then reveals to her that after Ever left, Ava took the elixir that they had made togther and fled town, leaving Damen to die. Ever is shocked by this new information.
Roman is there and says that he has made a anitdote to save Damen. However, he says that Ever needs to cut herself so they can add her blood to the antidote, explaining that it is the only way the antidote will work. Rayne yells at Ever, saying Roman is a liar, his intentions aren’t good, and that it’s a trick. Ever turns her back on Rayne, listens to Roman, and adds her blood to the antidote. After she feeds Damen the antidote, he comes back to life, much to Ever's great relief.
Roman happily reveals that when she added her own blood to the mix she created a powerful curse, if Damen and Ever touch he will die and his soul will be cast into the Shadowland for all eternity. Ever is devastated by the turn of events and is horrified to tell Damen the truth. Though, she is extremely happy that Damen is alive and that they are together again.
Ever is extremely grateful that Damen is free of Roman's control and that they are once again together. She finally confesses everything to him that happened while he was under Roman's influence. Damen thinks that this is all about his bad karma and that there is no hope for him. This makes Ever furious, however he is adamant that there is nothing they can do. She refuses to accept defeat and makes Damen promise her that they will find a cure. However, the couple quickly realize they have nothing to go on and are both devastated that they will never be able to truly touch each other again.
"There's got to be a way, some kind of cure. And together, we'll find it. I know we will. We've come too far to let Roman keep us apart. But I can't do it alone. Not without your help. So please promise me----promise you'll try."~Ever pleading with Damen not to give up on finding a cure.
"Nothing's going to keep me from you, Ever. Nothing."
~Damen expressing disdain for the curse.
To remedy their loss of physical contact, Damen - with practice and inspiration from Summerland - creates a veil of pulsating energy. The veil that Damen creates is only visible to him and Ever, it allows the couple to "almost touch" and thus elevates some of anguish they have to endure.
In order to protect her from Roman, Damen gives Ever a amulet made of crystals. He explains that each amulet is different showing her his, he goes on to say that she must always wear it.
To somewhat escape the many complications of their life, Damen and Ever skip school one day and go to an art gallery. While at the gallery Damen shows her a painting of her that was done during her past life in Amsterdam. He then shows her the name of the artist that painted it: Bastiaan de Kool. Damen goes on to explain that Bastiaan de Kool was a reincarnation of Jude Knight. Damen says to Ever that the two of them shared a love affair before they met; she is shocked by this news.
He continues by showing Ever that through out her many past lives, Jude and Ever shared many liaisons. However, she always chose Damen in her many reincarnations over Jude. Damen says that given this recent and major revelation he is going to give her time to choose between him and Jude. Ever is adamant that she needs to make no decision, stating that Damen is the only one for her. Nonetheless, Damen is insistent on giving her time to decide, however he says that he will still watch over and continue to love her, despite the separation. Ever finally relents and they strike a deal that they will be apart for the summer; this leaves her devastated as she had hoped to spend an stress-free vacation with him. At the end of Shadowland, Ever is feeling extreme guilt about having to make Haven drink the elixir and is terrified to reveal this revelation to her best friend.
"We'll get thorugh this you'll see." ~Damen offering comforting words to Ever.
She is reassured by Damen's words but only slighlty.
Ever goes on to confess about her and Jude's time in the hot tub and she tells him about the tattoo she saw.
Damen explains that the Ouroboros symbol isn't meant to be evil.
He goes on to say that Roman's tribe of Immortals have distorted it and that it is actually a ancient alcheimcal symbol siginfying creation out of destuction and eternal life.
She again reassures Damen that nothing happened between her and Jude.
"It's always been you. Just you. No one but you."~ Ever assuring Damen that he is the only one for her.
She is very worried about all of her problems, Roman and how she can get the anitdote form him, the reappearnce of Ava, her lingering feelings for Jude and how Damen is now looking after the twins Romy and Rayne.However she is deeply comforted in her newly reconciled relationship with Damen and the two passionatley kiss giving her further encouragement.
Dark FlameEditEver is happy that she and Damen are together, however both are becoming increasingly frustrated over their inablity to break the curse that Roman has put on Damen.
In desperation she turns to dark magick in her attempt to break the curse. Ever does a spell which she hopes will make Roman reveal to her everything about the anitdote.
However the spell backfires and instead it binds her to Roman, she soon becomes obsessed with wanting to be near him.
Her obsession with her enemy causes extreme friction in her relationship with Damen.
One night Ever is so overcome with her desire for Roman she goes to his house disguised as Drina and nearly sleeps with him.
Knowing she has hit rock bottom Ever tries to seek help.
However this proves extremely difficult since the spell doesn't allow her to confide in Damen on the earth plane.
The only time Ever is remotely healthly is when she is in Summerland.
Because of her immersion in dark magick Ever's appearance changes dramatically.
She becomes gaunt and frail looking, her hair looses it's luster and fullness and her skin becomes acne riddled.
Also because of her dealings with the darker side of magick she is hardly able to manifest and her telepathy with Damen is virtuously nonsexist.
Ever begs Damen to travel to Summerland with her so she can explain her situation.
Damen however refuses he asks that they simply talk it out.
Ever balks and travels to Summerland without him.
This causes Damen extreme turmoil because of his inability to help Ever.
Eventually she is able to beat her addiction to dark magick and finds information that is able to help her.
Ever goes to an underwater cave and lights a candle along with insense.
She then does a ritual simlar to what she did for the binding spell but she says a diffrent incantation hoping that it will relive her of the spell she is under.
"I call upon Hecate, the queen of the underworld, magick,
and the darkest of moons,
Please unweave this spell, lossen this bind and extinguish
this dark flame tha looms
Oh, great patron of witches, beloved mother, madien, and crone,
This is my mote, my will, my might,
So let it be done!"
~ Ever speaking the unbinding incantation
A fierce wind blows over her it destorys the underwater cave she in leaving Ever kneeling on the ground of the beach.
Once the wind rescinds Ever's appearance chances back to normal.
She is also able to manifest again and quickly manifests a new set of clothes.
The next day Ever get's back together with Damen which makes him estastic.
Ever's 17th birthday soon approaches and Damen has a surprise for her.He takes a unnecessarily blindfolded Ever to Summerland.
There he reveals his surprise; a white pavilion in a field of red tulips.
Ever is nearly brought to tears by the pavillon, she asks him how he created this.
Damen explains that it took him awhile through the process went rather quickly because of Summerland.
“I think-- I think you're the most amazing person in the entire world and I think that I'm so incredibly lucky to know you -to love you- and I think that I'm so incredibly grateful that you didn't give up on me."
"I'd never give up on you." ~ Ever expressing her gratitude to Damen for always believing in her and Damen reiterating his faith in her.
Damen says that the pavilion is not only her birthday present it is also her anniversary gift.
Ever is confused she quickly calculates and comes to the conclusion that it hasn't even been a year since they got together (in this life anyway)
Damen clarifies that their 1st anniversary was August 8th 1608 in Paris.
He then takes her hand and leads her into the pavilion which is elegantly decorated with beautiful murals on the ceiling. There is a incredibly soft white couch and the couple sink into it. Ever notices a large screen, similar to the screens in the Akashic Records.
Damen takes a remote that is near a table in front of them.
He then reveals a second part of his surprise. He says that they are actually able to experience their past lives here.
Ever is uncertain but Damen gently whispers to her to believe, she does and the two are soon transported back to Paris circa 1608.
While in this past life Ever is thrilled to realize that they can actually touch each other again.
Is, it really possible, the we can be together, -now- here?~ Ever telepathically shares her exctiment about the ability to touch Damen again and the ideas that it brings.
I'm afraid this is merely a theater of the past. You can edit the script, but you're not allowed to ad-lib it, or add experiences that never occurred.~ Damen telepathically explains that although the two may touch each other in their past lives they still aren't able to consummate their love.
This saddens Ever greatly but she accepts it and allows herself to share a much wanted intimate moment with Damen.
Having finally freed herself from the spell she had created Ever still finds herself without the antidote and tries the old fashioned way of asking.
However upon getting to Roman's house and within reach of gaining the antidote, Jude, the owner of the shop Ever had been working at, bursts in, willing to help Ever from what he believes is Roman hurting her.
However in the process the bottle of antidote gets destroyed and Roman is killed.
Ever is devastated, the one thing that was able to restore her and Damen's happiness, lies on the floor, gone. And the one person who knew how to make the new antidote is a pile of dust, mixing in with the liquid.
At the end of Dark Flame Ever opens her mind to Damen's and allows every single memory to flow into his mind. Including when she almost lost her virginity to Roman.
Afterward, Damen looks at her lovingly and says "There's nothing there that changed my mind about you. Not one single thing." Ever nods and finally understands that Damen's love for her is true and unconditional.
Damen says hopefully to Ever "Either way, we'll ride it out together. That's how it is with soulmates. That's just what they do."
Night StarEditEver and Damen's relationship is going strong it is the last day of summer and Damen is coaching Ever on how to defend herself and if necessary, kill Haven should she find herself alone with her nemesis.
Growing weary of her training Ever easily convinces Damen to go to their sanctuary: The Pavillion.
When they get to the Pavillion they both instantly relax happy that they are in their special place and will soon be able to touch each other.
Tired of Damen always getting to "change the channels" of their past lives Ever playfully takes the remote form him. However in doing so she accidently stumbles upon a past life of hers in the Antebellum South, where she is being beaten as a slave.
Damen urges her to stop watching but Ever is transfixed by the scene playing out in front of her and doesn't, and the scene soon ends.
Shocked and horrified Damen explains that since he created the Pavillion he edits their past lives wanting only for them to experience happiness in the place he created for her. He is deeply saddened that she had to see a past life of hers that was so cruel and bleak.
Ever is deeply shaken by the slave life of hers she witnessed and finds it extremely difficult to forget it entirely.
Damen successfully changes the subject by suggesting that he and Ever merge with one of their more happier past lives.
Ever agrees, but the haunting memory of her being beaten as a slave still lingers in the back of her mind.
Pushing the memory aside she gratefully takes Damen up on his idea and he and Ever happily merge with a much more romantic past life of theirs in London.
She lets her sadness go from watching her life as a slave and relishes in being able to touch Damen.
On the first day of their senior year Ever and Damen are soon introduced to the new social order Haven has now become the most popular girl in the school because of her Immortal ability to hypnotize.
They are even more shocked to find out that the amulet that Ever gave her is gone.
Damen is deeply concerned for her safety but Ever is determined to graduate and not let Haven get to her.
She reassures Damen that she is fine, and the couple telepathically "Instant Message" each other all day.
When she is alone in the girls bathroom Haven physically attacks Ever throwing her effortlessly against the tile wall. The force of the impact of Ever hitting the title bathroom wall causes some of the tiles to fall off.
Ever is shocked at her rival's strength and speed.
Weakened by Haven's attack she slumps down to the floor.
Haven crouches down and pins her to the wall she continues. She says that she is coming after her.
She also hints that Damen has been keeping a very large secret from her.
Ever tries to negotiate with Haven saying that there is no reason the two of them can't just co-exist.
Haven is unmoved Ever's pleas of a cease-fire. She maliciously taunts her again and leaves.
Curious as to what Haven meant about Damen keeping something from her, Ever journeys to Summerland and the Pavillion.
When she goes inside Ever is shocked when she catches Damen previewing and erasing one of her past lives.
She discovers that during her slave life, Damen had taken her away from her family, her friends, and Jude without giving her a choice.
Ever is completely heartbroken, yelling at Damen on how he could still be keeping things from her, especially when she has been so open with him.
He tries to explain but Ever will hear none of it, hurt and devastated, she swiftly breaks up with Damen.
Throughout the novel she tries to figure out if Jude or Damen is the one she is meant to be with.
In the meantime, Damen reveals everything to Miles about the fact that they are Immortals.
Despite Damen and Ever's deception, Miles decides to remain Ever's friend and keep their secret of immortality.
He is offered to become a Immortal by Damen but refuses to ever drink the elixir.
Miles refuses because he wants to experience a full, rich life in order for him to become a great actor. Both Damen and Ever accept his wishes.
Ever quickly realizes that Haven has become addicted to the elixir but also that Roman never passed down the recipe before he died and that the Immortals he created are fighting amongst themselves over what remains.
She also realizes that the antidote can be recovered because it had stained Roman's shirt when he had been killed but Haven has the shirt.
During a battle between Haven, Jude, and Ever, Haven kills Ever by punching her weakest chakra.
Ever is quickly cast into Shadowland.
While in the darkness of Shadowland Ever witnesses all of her past lives and sees her mistakes.
She also is able to see how Damen felt during the many times she doubted her feelings for him.
Ever is able to see through each time they separated in the recent past, and that Damen's love for her never once wavered. She realizes that Damen is the only person she is meant to be with.
"Damen is the One.
Always has been
Always will be." ~Ever realizing Damen is the only one for her.
After her profound epiphany she overcomes her weakest chakra, allowing her to come back to life.
As soon as she comes back from the Shadowland Ever still thinks that she is dead.
However Damen assures she isn't by kissng her.
Ever then kisses Damen passionately happily reuniting with him on the earth plane and transfering the memories she saw in Shadowland to him.
Having reconciled with Damen, Ever decides to attack Haven.
She stages a coup at school, causing Haven to lose her power she had over the student body, before trying to prevent Haven from stealing her supply of elixir.
Haven then realizes the importance of the shirt and decides to destroy it.
In Roman's house, Jude tries to steal the shirt for Ever but gets caught by Haven who tries to force Ever to choose between the shirt or Jude.
She refuses to choose but is later forced to kill Haven when Haven tries to kill Miles.
The shirt is destroyed in the process but Jude and Miles are saved.
After she kills Haven, she and Damen travel to Summerland, they have an “funeral” for Haven where Ever buries her clothes in a small field.
When they have finished Ever and Damen quickly run into Jude, Romy, Rayne and Ava.
It is here that she and Jude finally acknowledge that there is nothing between them.
Soon after Ever deals with her relationship with Jude, she and Damen to go the Pavillion to spend time together. When they leave the Pavillion she and Damen travel to the “dark” part of Summerland.
Ever and Damen then realize that something is rotting in Summerland they don't know why, only that it's coming after Ever.
At the end of Night Star, she firmly renews her relationship with Damen, making both of them extremely happy and further strengthening their love.
"I'm fully committed to you.To us. I think you know that by now." ~ Ever expressing her renewed faith in their relationship to Damen
Everlasting is about the 'Dark' side of Summerland, and what lies within it.
Ever goes back with Damen, and she meets the lady, Lotus.
Lotus tells Ever that only she could set them free, and she puzzles Ever by calling her Adelina.
Ever tries to figure all the riddles, but Damen fears that all of this is dangerous, and he doesn't want her to get hurt.
Ever has this strange thought, later on, that what if she had another past life, a time when even Damen had another, too.
Ever finds out that her theory is true.
Ever goes on a quest, and all her friends come to help her. But Jude doesn't want her to go alone. Lotus tells them that it's Jude's journey, too, and Ever gets a little uncomfortable. Going somewhere with Jude? Without Damen?
Through the journey to save Lotus's people, to find her destiny, and to get to the tree of life, Jude and Ever separate, leaving Ever alone.
Ever sees herself as Adelina, Damen as Arlik, who is meant to marry Esme (Drina). Heath(Jude) loves Adelina. Rhys(Roman), of course, loves Esme.
Ever also sees Haven, Miles, Ava & the twins. She realizes that all her friends have been with her through all her past lives. Ever sees her other past lives, too.
When Ever gets back, she sees Jude there. Lotus tells her her journey isn't complete. Ever goes through the river of forgetness. She almost forgets everything, when she is reminded of her friends, and she continues her journey.
Ever finally gets to the tree, but she isn't alone. Other people want the fruit. Ever realizes when they grab the fruit, that there isn't only one. The whole time the legend was wrong! Ever grabs as much fruit as she can, fills up her backpack and shirt, and heads off.
Ever comes across the snow-globe-like 'personal hell' that Riley showed her in her dream (Riley doesn't suspect this is what happens when immortals get banished into the Shadowland. In fact Ever thinks the whole time that Riley was trying to tell her something, but Riley just wanted to show her what she had come across during her soul-catching. It explains this in Shimmer, a Riley book).
Ever goes through hell trying to get everyone out, and she sees Haven, Drina, & Roman.
When Ever gets back, it's May! She'd missed most of school, and she does all her make-up work so she could have at least half a normal life. She tries to do it by herself, but she eventually gives in to her powers. If you have something, use it, right?
Miles throws her a party, and Ever has a plan for all the immortals in case they want to change back and grow out. About half of the immortals take the offer, but it's not over yet.
Ever & Damen have the formula, so they can touch. But Ever plans on eating the fruit. This act hurts Damen. Ever & Damen are in the same room together. Ever thinks that they are going to go separate ways. But Damen would never do that! They find out they do not really need the formula, when they eat the fruit.
In the end, Damen & Ever still have their powers because whatever happens in Summerland c'an happen on the Earth plane.' Damen sends Ever a telepathy rose--and it works! Damen & Ever will learn to manifest large things on the earth plane. Ever and Damen will see he world, but not in Summerland. They decide to take a plane. Ever sees, for a split second, Riley! jumping up and down, waving to her! Ever gets Damen's attention, and she's gone. This is Ever's private thing that she doesn't share with Damen. Ever will see her again, when she dies and goes to the Here and Now.
Ever's relationship with Sabine is loving, but strained. She is extremely grateful to her aunt for taking her in when she didn't have to. Though, she feels that that she is a burden to her, most of the time.
Ever finds it extremely hard to be open fully with her guardian, this compounded by the fact she cannot tell Sabine the truth about her Immortality and psychic abilities. Through their relationship is strained Ever retains a great love for her aunt. She is happy, though somewhat distressed, when Sabine finds love in her History teacher, Mr. Munoz.
The two also seem to have a laid back way of addressing each other, Ever calling her Aunt Sabine.
Damen Auguste Edit
Ever is deeply in love with Damen, as in all of her past lives. He is deeply in love with her and constantly gives her tulips, which signify undying love. He flirts with Stacia in Evermore, to see if she really cares. However, he gave her white rose buds, which mean ignorance, and he used them as a sign to show her he is only testing her. After finding out that he was an Immortal and made her one, Ever - out of fear and uncertainty - breaks up with Damen after breaking into his house and seeing him apparently "drinking Haven's blood."
However, after defeating his ex-wife Drina, she finally allowed herself to reciprocate Damen's love for her, much to his relief. She seals her Immortal fate by telling him, "I love you." Ever enjoys to communicate telepathically with Damen, especially when they are in school and often ditch together. Though she sees him every day, Ever is always entranced by Damen's perfect Immortal looks and grace. He is constantly attentive to her physical and emotional needs hardly ever being apart from Ever expect when necessary.
Damen wants to properly consummate their relationship, as he has been waiting for four hundred years, but respects that Ever is unsure and constantly tells her that he is willing to wait for her to make up her mind.
Jude Knight Edit
Ever first meets Jude Knight in the third book, Shadowland. Sabine, growing worried that her neice is spending too much time with Damen, convinces her on getting a summer job. Opposed to the idea, Ever relents to placate her aunt. Ever then travels to Mystics & Moonbeams, a book store near the boardwalk. It sells books, incense, various herbs, and crystals. It is here that she meets Jude Knight; he is the nineteen-year-old co-owner of the store, his grandmother Lina being the real owner. Ever asks Jude for a job.
He somehow instantly recognizes that Ever has special abilities and auditions her for a part as a fortuneteller. Ever is apprehensive, seeing as she has never really done a proper reading on someone before. Jude, however, insists. Reluctantly, Ever takes hold of Jude's hand and starts to see into his past. When she lets go, Ever tells him what she saw.
His father committed suicide when he was ten, which was a year after his mother passed away. For many years, Jude felt immense guilt, thinking that he could of stopped his father form ending his life. Ever also realizes that Jude has a gift similar to hers; he can see spirits of those who are going to cross over. She tells him that his father tried to visit him over the years, so he could explain that he only ended his life because he wanted to be with his mother.
As he got older, Jude suppressed his ability, and thus never saw his father again. During her reading of him, Ever further sees that Jude is very smart, having graduated high school at just sixteen. Ever additionally sees that Lina isn't his biological grandmother - his real grandparents passed away before he was born. Lina took him in when he had no place left to go and in the words of Jude “She saved my life.”
She feels a bond with the tall blond surfer and immediately accepts a job. She, however, asks Jude that she go by an alias when she does readings. After a few minutes of thought, she comes up with the alias of “Avalon.” Ever finds that working at Mystics & Moonbeans brings a sense of normalcy to her hectic life.
She also discovers that Jude's cool and laid back attitude gives her a much needed sense of calmness that she desperately seeks. One night, Jude comes over to Ever's house while her aunt is working. She and Jude retreat to her hot tub and, caught up in the moment, almost kiss. Ever quickly stops herself when she sees that Jude has an Ouroboros tattoo. Thinking that he is a Rogue Immortal and in league with Roman, she asks him to leave.
Later on in Shadowland, Ever discovers that she and Jude shared many past love affairs. However, she always chose Damen over him. Ever discovers this when Damen takes her to gallery and shows her a painting he did of her when they were both in Amsterdam. She and Jude were lovers, but he went by the name of Bastiaan de Kool. She is unsure how to deal with this revelation and this creates a love triangle between her, Jude, and Damen.
Ever's complicated relationship with Jude continues her immersion in dark magic, worrying Jude immensely. He is powerless to help her, seeing as Ever doesn't confide in him about her addiction. She is able to still work at the store and continues to do readings as Avalon. Ever is still wary of Jude because of the Ouroboros tattoo she saw, through she doesn't tell him that.
One day, Ever accidentally attacks Jude with a saw, still thinking he is with Roman. Horrified by her actions, Ever takes Jude to the emergency room. Luckily Jude is fine, though his arms are severely damaged - having been cut to the bone. Ever is unable to think of an excuse for his injuries to the doctor, Jude quickly covers for Ever, saying that he damaged himself in a home repair gone awry. Ever drives Jude home and apologizes profusely. Jude annoyingly accepts her apology. He goes on to say that his only connection to Roman is through Ever and that she can either trust him, or not. Ever soon comes to the conclusion that Jude isn't a Rogue Immortal and begins to trust him. Their relationship hits a snag when Jude accidentally kills Roman thinking that he was hurting Ever.
Ever and Jude's relationship is brought to a head in Night Star, when Ever goes to the store and sees that Jude's aura is black, which signals death. Worried for Jude, she rushes to his side and asks if he is all right.
Jude gives her the sad news that Lina is dead; she was involved in car accident in Guatemala where she had been vacationing. Ever asks if he is sure and Jude says he is.
He goes on to explain that Lina appeared to him he saw that she looked so light and at peace he knew for certain that she had crossed over.
Knowing all too well how it feels like to lose someone having lost her entire family Ever offers her unyielding support to Jude.
Jude is grateful he asks her if she wouldn't mind looking in on the store for awhile and Ever immediately says yes. He goes on to make the necessary arrangements.
Keeping her promise to Jude Ever attends Lina's memorial and stays after to help him clean up. While Jude is grateful for her help he is also frustrated.
Knowing his connection to her he asks that she not spend as much time with him as she has been until she makes a choice between him and Damen.
Saddened by this news Ever relents and stops visiting Jude so often.
Her relationship with Jude finally reaches it's peak.
After many doubts and questioning Ever kisses Jude in order to discover once and for all if they are meant to be together. Before she is able to sort out how she feels about their kiss Haven attacks both her and Jude.
When she is cast into the Shadowland Ever realizes that Damen is the one for her.
“One thing made abundantly, blindingly, clear- while it's true Jude's always been there, always been kind and giving and loving toward me---Damen's my one and only true soul mate.”~ Ever finally sees that Jude and her were never supossed to be together.
After she comes back form the Shadowland Ever firmly renews her relationship with Damen.
They travel to Summerland and discover that Jude is there healed completely form his wounds he had gotten in the battle with Haven.
It is there that she and Jude silently acknowledge that they are not meant for each other. Jude is visibly disappointed by this but realizes that it is for the best.
“Damen and I communing my head on his shoulder, our hands clasped tightly together. And that's all Jude needs to see to know that the choice has been made.
To know that it's Damen and I who are meant to be together.
That whatever happened between us was long over before it could ever get started. Both of us knowing that this is it, my decision is made, and that it won't be up for consideration ever again.” ~Ever on her final choice.
Ever manifests her Night Star in Summerland.
“Wishing for him to remain hopeful and willing to believe that there's someone out there who's far better suited for him that I ever could be. Wishing for him to find what I've found with Damen. And I leave him with that wish. Leave my star shining high in sky for as long as it lasts.” ~ Ever hoping that Jude finds happiness someday.
Ever's relationship with her gay best friend Miles is extremely loving and strong. Not until Night Star is he finally made aware what Ever and Damen are. Even before he knows the truth Miles is a kind and welcoming friend to Ever making friends with her on one of her first days of school.
Haven === Ever's friendship with Haven is one of the most evolved relationships in the Immortals Series.
The two first start off as the best of friends.
Their friendship is strained and compliacated in Shadowland when Ever has to feed Haven the Exlir in order to keep an enemy of hers Roman form killing her.
In Dark Flame their realtionship is further strained because of Haven's inablitlity to control her new Immortal powers.
Finally in Night Star their rivarly reaches it's peak, because of Ever's inadverant role in her boyfriend's death, Haven in result becomes consumed with rage and wages war aganist her once best friend.
In the end of Night Star, Haven becomes so uncontrollable she nearly
kills Miles because of this Ever in the end is forced to kill Haven banning her soul forever to the Shadowland, the place where Immortal's souls dwel forever. Even thorugh Ever doesn't regret her decison to kill Haven she still harbor's deep gulit.
Damen often manifests red tulips to Ever. Red Tulips signfity undying love.
It pleases Ever greatly whenever she gets a tulip from Damen especially when she is going through a difficult time. He manifests them to her each time they seperate.
Damen does this to remind her of their 'undying love' i.e. their past lives.
At first this confuses Ever until she looks up the meaning of them.
The red tulip is the symbol for the whole series.
Since her (NDE ) Near Death Experience, Ever is able to see an aura around a person who is living. Colors represent each emotion and has only ever experienced someone's aura to be white (pure) which was her aunt, Sabine. The colors vary depending on the mood and there are several types,which Ever knows from experience. With a touch of flesh or physical contact Ever can read minds, see their lives and even see what has happened during their lives. Her Immortal status also gave her enchanced speed. Because she is an Immortal Ever will never fall ill again.
In order to retain her Immortality Ever must contiunally drink the Elixir that Damen makes to sustain her as well as himself.
Through her Immortality Ever developed strong telekinetic powers including the ability to manifest objects. With help from Damen and practice she was able to master these gifts. While she has a handle on most of her powers, Ever is continuously in training Damen being her own personal coach he is always helping her to retain and understand her powers. As well as her enchanced psychic ablites being turned into an Immortal made Ever even more beautiful.
Her already long blond hair grew longer reaching past her waist. She also grew a few inches in a matter of hours.Like Damen Ever when turned into an Immortal gained a psychic radar which makes driving extremely fast and easy for her.But unlike Damen who almost always uses it, Ever finds using the radar is unesscary and doesn't think it is a power that they should abuse.
