I don't know what it is about this series, but every book pulls me in!  Shadowland is the third book in The Immortals series.  When I finally got my copy last week it had been awhile since I'd read the first two books, Evermore and Blue Moon, so I couldn't quite remember the plot.  But after just a couple chapters I was back on track and completely absorbed into this third installment.

Due to the poison in the last novel, Blue Moon, Ever and Damen can't touch or their immortal souls will die, causing them to spend eternity in a dark place called Shadowland.  Ever is determined to find an anecdote to cure them of their poison.  Meanwhile real life happens - Ever is forced to find a summer job, though luckily she finds one that can help her in her quest, and it's there that she meets Jude, an attractive young man who will test her love with Damen.

Wooo, love triangle!  Albeit not as exciting as others, this was a love triangle done right - not forced from the beginning of the series, but something that occurred organically and believably.  The interesting plot thickened a little in Shadowland, the character were just as good as ever, and on the whole I enjoyed it.

Still, I felt like this book was more of a bridge between the second and fourth books and as such there wasn't a lot of action or new developments.  Regardless of that, I was drawn in and read it very fast.  I'm loving this series more now than when I started it!
