Dark Flame Review by Ana

Ever is trying to help Haven transition into life as an immortal. But with Haven drunk on her new powers and acting recklessly, she poses the ultimate threat—exposing their secret world to the outside. As Ever struggles to keep the Immortals hidden, it only propels Haven closer to the enemy—Roman and his evil companions

At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magick to free Damen from Roman’s power. But when her spell backfires, it binds her to the one guy who’s hell-bent on her destruction. Now there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can’t stop thinking about Roman—and longing for his touch. As she struggles to resist the fiery attraction threatening to consume her, Roman is more than willing to take advantage of her weakened state…and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.

Frantic to break the spell before its too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, risking everything she knows and loves to save herself—and her future with Damen …

In the forth installment of Alyson Noel's IMMORTALS Series, I found it a bit weak. I love the IMMORTALS series and Alyson Noel is my favorite writer, but I felt nothing was resolved here and the book just went on and on. I felt bored while reading it and it didn't mesmerize me the way EVERMORE and BLUE MOON did.

Ever continues to make more mistakes and I still feel like yelling at her. I felt as though she never learns her lesson. But at least here, she understood that she was making far too many mistakes, but as always, she continued. The characters were different for me. Haven was completely evil and changed in a couple of chapters, we didn't have a lot of Miles to sooth everything, Damen was barely in the picture, and Roman surprised me. I'm not going to say how because it is a spoiler, but I did wish the characters didn't have such a dramatic change in them.

One good thing still was the cover. The IMMORTALS have had such beautiful covers that I always wait to see them. I love Haven's face in the background because it shows her change.

Overall I liked this book, but it far from my favorite.
