Ever and Damen have traveled through countless past lives—and fought off the world's darkest enemies—so they could be together forever. But just when their long-awaited destiny is finally within reach, a powerful curse falls upon Damen . . . one that could destroy everything. Now a single touch of their hands or a soft brush of their lips could mean sudden death—plunging Damen into the Shadowland. Desperate to break the curse and save Damen, Ever immerses herself in magick—and gets help from an unexpected source . . . a surfer named Jude.

Although she and Jude have only just met, he feels startlingly familiar. Despite her fierce loyalty to Damen, Ever is drawn to Jude, a green-eyed golden boy with magical talents and a mysterious past. She's always believed Damen to be her soulmate and one true love—and she still believes it to be true. But as Damen pulls away to save them, Ever's connection with Jude grows stronger—and tests her love for Damen like never before.


Praise for Shadowland

"I have never been more unexpectedly surprised by an author. Noel knows exactly how to keep me enthralled in her books . . . Shadowland is purely mesmerizing. A book with a little bit of everything in it—romance, suspense, friendship, and immortality—all meshed together to create a mind-blowing combination."—The Book Blogger

"Teenage immortal Ever, newly reconnected with her boyfriend-across-the-centuries, Damen, works hard to get things right, both in the mortal and immortal worlds. Her best (mortal) friend has troubles that magick could fix, but Damen teaches Ever why this would be wrong to pursue. Meanwhile, evil immortal Roman hovers only barely offstage, Ever hooks her history teacher up with her aunt, and she rescues 13-year-old immortal witch twins only to wind up watching Damen turn parental. Noël continues to offer a satisfying brew of fantasy with genuine and engagingly promoted ethical questions in this third volume in the Immortals series."—Francisca Goldsmith, Booklist

"Ever and Damen have triumphed over adversity and are now both immortal. The only sticking point is that Roman tricked Ever just as she saved Damen's life and now they are never allowed to touch. All of this occurred at the end of Evermore (St. Martin's, 2009), and these events are quickly recounted here. However, readers not familiar with that book will still find this one confusing. Ever is understandably upset at the idea of eternal life with her beloved while never allowed to kiss (not to mention anything else), and Damen is determined to find a reversal spell. Then things get even stickier for these romantic heroes. Ever runs into Jude, the man she's married or almost married in her past incarnations. Is she supposed to end up with him instead of Damen? And Damen becomes responsible for twins who escaped the fires of Salem but are now homeless and still aged 13. Can he overturn his bad karma by becoming father to these homeless girls? While Ever is a rather naïve and superficial protagonist, she still manages to hold readers' interest more than she annoys. Additionally, the question of love versus destiny is one that many romantic fantasy readers enjoy pondering. This is a quick read for fans of the first book who are looking for light romance with some magic added for good measure."—Saleena L. Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, School Library Journal
