“Noel’s long-awaited conclusion to her Immortals series delivers, with a rich and satisfying plot, a complete ending and a healthy mix of wisdom and magic. Fans will be pleased with how well Noel ties up all the loose ends but also gives the book its own exciting plot. You’ll be sad to see the series end, but satisfied with its conclusion.” –4 Stars, RT Magazine

“Everlasting is a strong finish to the Immortals saga . . . Alyson Noel soars with this one.” – Midwest Book Review

“Ever and Damen's journey has been an awesome treat, so fans may greet this final book in the series with bittersweet enthusiasm. But like the previous installments, EVERLASTING will thrill readers with its spicy romance, profound ideas and intense drama. Alyson Noël's writing talents really shine here, and her words surge with emotion. She offers interesting symbolism and deep insight into life's mysteries that will leave teens contemplating these ideas long after the last page is turned. She uses the story-within-a-story technique with the telling of Ever's first life, creating a brief interval in the existing drama to see how the characters' lives all first interacted centuries ago. Her imagination also delivers wondrous visions of Summerland on Ever's difficult journey, and she wraps up the entire series in a conclusion that will bring a sigh of satisfaction.
Even though this is the end of the Immortals series, fans will be impatiently waiting to see what Alyson Noël has in store for them next.”--Chris Shanley-Dillman, Teen Reads

“...The true magic of the story, though, is not so much in the plot and the amazing characters within it. The true magic is the positive outlook, and the way these novels can just leave the reader feeling refreshed and like they learned something. Without being preachy, without sounding like a self-help book, Noël touches on the acceptance of death, the dangers of anger, and, once again, the power of positive thinking. And whether its Haven spiraling out of control, the twins finally making their way back into Summerland, or Ever finally overcoming her weakness, the message comes through loud and clear—it’s all about acceptance and facing life in a positive way. If you haven’t bought this yet, go get it right away!” 5 Stars- The Examiner

"...Alyson Noël continues to write amazing stories that sizzle. NIGHT STAR jumps right into high action and never slows down, not even after the last page. Her writing is intense and vivid, pulling readers into the depths of her imagination. She cleverly weaves in the horrors of bullying, and the wounding effects on the hearts and souls of those involved. She also offers up a few inspirational passages, including Miles’s speech about his reasons for remaining mortal, that may remind readers to appreciate the gifts of life. . .Fans will look forward to the next book --- releasing in the summer of 2011 --- with bittersweet enthusiasm, as it will be the final installment in the series."-- Chris Shanley, TeenReads

“Ms. Schorr reads NIGHT STAR as brilliantly as she has the four previous novels in the series. It’s a real treasure to be able to listen to the same reader through multiple novels in a series. There is a consistency there that the listener comes to rely on. Ms. Schorr’s voice becomes Ever, and takes on all the characters just as wonderfully. Miles has a larger role in NIGHT STAR, and I enjoyed listening to Ms. Schorr take on his newfound confidence. Ms. Schorr aptly shares the nuances of Haven’s ever increasing agitation and frustration as her obsession with Ever grows. And as always, by the final lines, she has brought the listener to the edge of their seats, eagerly wanting more, but knowing that they will have to wait for the next novel.” – TeensReadToo Review for audio version

"DARK FLAME is the fourth installment in Alyson Noël’s The Immortals series, and the intensity just keeps growing. Her writing style sizzles with energy and passion, creating a driving force that compels the reader through the pages. She seems to have an endless supply of exciting and creative ideas that keeps the series fresh. Her characters continue to fascinate, with their strengths and weaknesses, their refreshing diversities and unexpected uniformities, plus a few of them meet up with some big changes in this book, adding to the compelling factors of the series. Noël also proposes some thought-provoking ideas, like karma, and the belief that focusing on the positive brings about positive results. These ideas are sure to give readers something to think about long after the last page is turned. Noël sure knows how to write a winner!" --Chris Shanley, TeenReads

"Alyson Noel is back . . . DARK FLAME returns readers to the high expectations of THE IMMORTALS series."- 5 Stars, TeensReadToo

“Noel’s novel is absolutely amazing! Fans of her Immortals series will not be disappointed—Ever and Damen’s love is challenged like never before, and the story ends with a big, satisfying twist that will have readers begging for more. This long awaited installment is incredible.” --4.5 Stars, Top Pick!- Romantic Times

"Noël continues to offer a satisfying brew of fantasy with genuine and engagingly promoted ethical questions in this third volume in the Immortals series.”— Booklist

“Alyson Noel'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. Noel's Immortals will enjoy the latest of Ever and Damen's journey and eagerly await the next story.”- Fresh Fiction

"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."- TeenReads

“It was easy to fall back into Ever and Damen’s world and get caught up in their epic love story. Author Alyson Noel 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 Noel 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 Noel 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

"Noël's sequel to the bestselling Evermore is a mesmerizing tale of teenage angst, love and sacrifice with plenty of crossover appeal. . . The startling but satisfying ending shows that Noël knows how to keep her audience hooked. Ever's supernatural struggles are a captivating metaphor for teenage fears about love, relationships and growing up. --Starred review, Publisher’s Weekly

"Mystery + romance + supernatural + drama = definite appeal to teens.”-- Orange Coast Magazine

" . . .Alyson Noël has many talents to share as a writer, and she proves it again and again with her amazing Immortals series. She writes with an intensity and a passion, her words weaving perfectly together to create an overwhelming experience for the senses and the heart. The excitement factor is nonstop . . . offering romance and heart-thumping chills. Noël sets up the third book, scheduled for release in February 2010, with plenty of cliffhanging excitement."- - Reviewed by Chris Shanley-Dillman, TeenReads

"I really enjoy sequels, but they make me nervous, especially when I loved the first book as much as I did EVERMORE. But Alyson Noel surpassed all my expectations, and not only is BLUE MOON an amazing sequel - it sets the bar for the rest of this series very, very high! When I reached the last page of this one, all I could say was “wow!” There were numerous twists that kept me guessing. Just when I thought I had things figured out, I would get pulled in a new direction, which kept the book fast-paced and full of suspense - I had to keep turning the pages. . .Another highly recommended book from Alyson Noel, I can’t wait to read more about Ever and Damen. THE IMMORTALS series is one you’ll want to get your hands on!" 5 Star Gold Award- TeensReadToo

“Noel's widespread and popular Immortals series, a saga about love, power, and the inevitable repercussions of a (possibly) endless lifespan. . .An enthralling, introspective fantasy adventure, highly recommended, even (or especially!) to those new to the Immortals series.“ 5 Stars- Midwest Book Review

“In the second installment of the bestselling and captivating Immortals series, gutsy young heroine Ever is faced with the twin teenage terrors of isolation and alienation. Noel does an excellent job exploring Ever’s growing fears and her determination to save lost love Damen. This author is on a roll!” 4 stars –Romantic Times

"Beautiful main characters, tense budding romance, a dark secret, mysterious immortals--what more could you ask for from this modern gothic romance?"- Justine Magazine

"Every once in awhile, a book comes along that I end up getting sucked into and become addicted. EVERMORE was one of those books. When I wasn’t reading, I was thinking about how I could sneak away to read some more. I couldn’t put it down. I dreamt about this book. When I finished, I couldn’t get it out of my head. This book was simply breathtaking.Ever is a wonderfully realistic character that grows throughout the novel. The guilt she feels over her family’s accident and her grieving process are heart-wrenchingly real, as is her growing acceptance of her new psychic gifts. I also loved the scenes with Riley, Ever’s little sister. Who knew a ghost could be so funny and charming? I know she’s just waiting to have her own series written about her. And Damen…well, what can I say - I’m in love. If you’re looking for a new lit-boy crush, Damen is it. Alyson Noel knows how to write for and about teens, and this is one of her best books yet. I can’t wait to find out more about the mysterious Damen and step into Ever’s world again. Combining mystery and romance, EVERMORE is the beginning of the next must-read paranormal series. Be sure to get your hands on this one - you’ll be swept away." Sarah Bean, TeensReadToo 5 STAR GOLD AWARD

“Alyson Noel does such a GREAT job of keep the reader on their toes, constantly engaged and wanting more . . .Noel pulls you in, gives you a tiny morsel of satisfaction, then let's you hang on again, wanting just a bit more, always guessing. And at the end? The big reveal is so incredibly satisfying, like a long nap after a triathlon. . .I give this book a 10/10! Lovely and beautiful. Everyone needs to read it and have it forever on their bookshelves! Can't wait for the sequel!” Reverie Media

"Teen angst and the paranormal make for a combustible mix as Noel utilizes typical themes and gives them a dangerous and eerie twist. Getting hooked on this new series, IMMORTALS, is guaranteed."- 4 STARS, Romantic Times magazine

" . . .Ever's vernacular voice and amorous fixation will gratify romance fans."- Kirkus

“This opening book in a new series, The Immortals, will thrill many teen fantasy-suspense readers, especially fans of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series … Noël (Saving Zoë, 2007) creates a cast of recognizably diverse teens in a realistic high-school setting, along with just the right tension to make Ever’s discovery of her own immortality—should she choose it—exciting and credible.”--Booklist

"Readers who enjoy the works of PC Cast and Stephenie Meyer will love this outstanding paranormal teen-lit thriller." –Midwest Book Review

"I thought this book was very good! The author creates a great picture of each and every character in the book. I am a fan of the twlight series and I recommend this book to those who like the series as well. It is a very quick read, with all the interesting twist and turns in this book." Flamingnet Book Reviews TOP CHOICE AWARD

" . . .The writing here is clear, the story well-defined and narrator Ever has an engaging voice that teens should enjoy. "- January Magazine

"This first novel in the Immortals series will appeal to fans of the Twilight books by Stephenie Meyer, and in fact, seems heavily inspired by it. . . Ever is ultimately a likeable character as she heals and learns to forgive herself for the accident that killed the rest of her family and let go of her dead younger sister, Riley, who has been a companion to Ever throughout the book. She also falls head over heels in love during the process."- VOYA

“This final book to the Soul Seekers series will leave you gasping for breath. It is dark and edgy and has more lessons than anyone ever realized. Books can teach you so many things and this series teaches you to live with your heart and to always see what is true not what you want to see…This is the book you want to read if you want a story about the last fight for love.”- Crossroad Reviews, 5 Stars

"Fans will revel in this truly terrific ending to the Soul Seekers series." 4 Stars, RT Magazine

"Noel doesn't disappoint with the third book in her Soul Seekers series. The plot moves at a brisk pace and our heroine is at her strongest and most determine—A winner!" 4 Stars, RT Magazine

"Daire and her boyfriend Dace are back to restore the balance of good and evil after saving her grandmother and her soul. Dace is deliciously yummy, and if I say so myself, so is his evil brother Cade. It's a bit more fast paced than Fated was, and it's setting up the series to have longevity. If only it wasn't so long again until the next installment!"4.5 Stars- Top Pick! Night Owl Reviews

”Mix surrealism, a prophecy, and a love that knows no bounds for one amazing read. I couldn't put this book down!”-YABC

Alyson is a fabulous storyteller. Teens and adults alike have flocked to her Immortals and Riley Bloom series. The Soul Seekers novels... Daire and Dace are a hot couple, and Daire is a realistic heroine."- HEAUSAToday

The second story of THE SOUL SEEKERS emphasizes the prophesized love between Daire and Dace and reveals the power of their unwanted connection with the evil Cade. As in her Immortals series, Alyson Noel weaves a layered story of revealed secrets and connections among characters. The Soul Seekers series has a mystical overlay and Native American references which make this series unique and enjoyable among other published paranormal stories… Daire and Dace are powerful heroes whose affecting love makes this series an engrossing, passionate reading experience." Amy Alessio- TeenReads

"The fictional town of Enchantment, New Mexico sets the stage for this engrossing tale of good and evil, magic, love, and sorcery. Daire is a worthy heroine, and makes her way between the otherworlds fearlessly. The suspense of the story primarily lies with the split soul of brothers Dace and Cade, and the reader will eagerly anticipate the way this situation resolves itself. Will good overcome evil? What sacrifices will need to be made? The author draws the reader into this conflict with ease, and deftly weaves modern-day life—cell phones and teenage angst—with ancient customs and folklore. This is a wonderful recommendation for readers of fantasy."- VOYA.

"An intriguing story.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Alyson Noël mines her New Mexico setting in this riveting kickoff to a quartet about Daire Santos, the reluctant heir to an ancient line of shamans. . .In Noël's capable hands, Daire straddles the otherworldly elements of her calling as a shaman and the familiar trappings of high school life. . .Readers will feel the pull of Daire's quest just as forcefully as Daire herself does and count the days until the release of Echo, the second installment, this fall.” –Starred Review, Shelf Awareness

“Noel has done it again! With fantastic characters and an amazing plot, this book will suck you in and leave you breathless. . . Noel is a master with words, and readers will realize anything is possible in her world. With passion and thrills around each corner, this book is a must read.” RT Magazine: 4.5 Stars, Top Pick! RT magazine

"“Noël’s story is nicely paced and well-written . . .Noël’s many fans will be eager to find out what happens next. “—Publisher’s Weekly

“ . . .intriguing, twisting story line,which is sure to draw Noël’s numerous fans.” --Booklist

“[A] hauntingly mystical read. . . . another home run series” –Justine magazine

“ . . .Noel does a terrific job of slowly unspooling their secrets and motivations with writing that is both charismatic and spunky. She describes the de rigueur mean girls as being "linked together in an impenetrable wall of designer knockoff jeans, padded bras and pop-star perfume." When a swarm of ravens descends on the town, "Their numbers [are] so great, the sky appears to be vomiting massive chunks of black hail.” In "Fated," Daire learns the world isn't at all as she'd believed. In "Echo," due out before the end of the year, readers are likely to be curious enough to want to find out what she plans to do about it.” -- LA Times

“ . . .there are some very unique plot twists, and the balance among romance, plot conflict and family relationships is well managed without a vampire or werewolf in sight . . .The magical system is different and well developed, drawing on both Spanish and Native American mythologies to create the Seekers, their enemies, the Lower, Middle and Upperworlds and the souls they fight over. "Fated" is a fast read and enjoyable . . .While the plot arc is complete in this book, the hooks for the next are set in place, and there is plenty of interesting material to be explored in future volumes.” --Deseret News

“All I can say is this book is amazing. I bet you've read a million reviews where the reviewer says this book is like nothing they've ever read before. Well with 'Fated' that is honestly how I felt . . . Dace is mysterious yet warm, caring and in some ways shy and naïve. Daire is witty and strong- the kind of girl we all wish to be. There are so many interesting twists and on the edge of your seat moments. . .It's fun, exciting, sexual and in some places a little terrifying . . . it is so far the best thing I have read this year. If you're looking for a new series to get stuck into 'The Soul Seekers' is out of this world. . .”- Dark Readers

I just finished Fated just a couple of minutes ago and I have to say "Alyson Noel has surpassed all of my exceptions with a new world filled with magick, trust, and love." . . . I absolutely adored the characters, especially Daire and, of course, DACE! I completely and utterly fell in love with all of the characters and, yes, even the bad ones. This novel has everything and anything you would want. I found myself not reading the pages fast enough, and completely devouring this book much faster than I thought. It just mesmerizes me how Alyson can create a world filled with fast-pacing, heart-breaking plots along with awesome characters and such a magical world. It's just I'm stunned, and absolutely speechless but one thing is for sure. Daire isn't over with her story just yet. Oh no, it is just beginning and might I say her the end of her first adventure has left with so any questions and I am already dying to read the next book in the series . . Echo. . . Trust me, really trust me, when I say you will not regret it! - Cover Analysis

"I found myself unable to put this book down, completely captivated by the narration and the beautifully crafted world. I definitely recommend FATED. It was a refreshing YA fantasy with new elements I’ve never before." --Love, Literature, Art and Reason

“Fans of Noel will love that this is more than a trilogy and the books are planned for every six months instead of the usual year-long wait between books.” 4 Stars- Chicago Examiner

“I loved this book. All the characters were beautifully developed including some of the minor characters. . . I for one had high expectations of this book because of Evermore and Fated defiantly met those standards.” –Flamingnet TOP CHOICE AWARD!

"This novel is something different than anything I've encountered. Fated has a rich mythology, full of spirit animals, spirit journeys, fate, soul-seeking, and of course, good and evil. I'd recommend Fated to those who want to read something a little different. I urge you to give this novel a try." --Thirteen Days Later

“In Noël's capable hands, Daire straddles the otherworldly elements of her calling as a shaman (including a captivating scene of Daire's vision quest) and the familiar trappings of a "normal" life as a high school student. . .Daire's sense of humor balances out her dark visions. . .The perils of high school often feel as threatening as navigating the Lower-, Upper- and Middleworld that Daire's destiny as a shaman requires of her. Readers will feel the pull of Daire's quest just as forcefully as Daire herself does, and will count the days until the release of Echo, the second installment, this fall.” –Jennifer M. Brown—Shelf Awareness

"The first Soul Seekers urban fantasy is a superb thriller starring a "troubled" young lady who learns she holds the fate of the world in her hands. The key to this absorbing tale is the heroine who makes the Noel mythos seems genuine as she enters the underworld in a soul searching rescue mission while wondering whom does she trust. Filled with twists, this is a winning opening act."--Midwest Book Review

“Alyson Noël paints a magical New Mexican landscape.” –New Mexico Style

“A rush of romance will sweep you away in this hauntingly mystical read. I'm already as addicted to Daire and Dace as I was to Ever and Damen. Next book please!” –Justine magazine

“Fated, the first book of the Soul Seekers series by Alyson Noel is truly a page-turner! It is truly engrossing and fantastic. It is a breath of fresh air in the paranormal genre. Alyson Noel is so clever in her creation of the spiritual world. Throughout the story, her descriptions of her characters, the environment they’re in the spiritual worlds they travel to, the emotions they feel, are so detailed and vivid, it left me yearning for more. Thank goodness each book for this series will be released every six months!?”-Book Twirps

"This promises to be an intriguing journey for Daire as she finds her way . . . Fans of Noël’s Immortals series will especially enjoy FATED." - TeenReads

“WHISPER is Alyson Noël’s fourth ghostly adventure with Riley, and each one is a delightful and intriguing journey into human nature. Noël weaves in many important life lessons for people of all ages, and does so with a vividly descriptive voice. She enriches her tale with symbolism, limerick, foreshadowing and some well-placed alliteration. Of course, the star of the show, the spunky and enthusiastic Riley, shines throughout the pages, bonding with the readers in both her failures and triumphs. Her boundless energy and quirky sense of humor make her the perfect traveling companion to explore the interesting and oftentimes violent aspects of the ancient gladiator world. Noël even includes some romance to sweeten the ride. And, like the three previous books, the pretty cover art continues to shine and entice.” –Chirs Shanley-Dillman,

" . . .Understanding and enjoying this book does not hinge on having read Radiance (Square Fish, 2010), but readers will be quickly drawn to Riley and want to learn more about this spunky character and her previous experiences. The author’s sharp contemporary wit in concert with her fascinating fantasy setting and important historical connections will draw readers through this enjoyable novel and have them begging for Riley’s third adventure."--School Library Journal

“What I like about Shimmer is that although it’s an entertaining, light-hearted novel, it also has deep meaning to it. It’s an appealing story with very likable characters, but it also will make you think about what life-after-death might be like... Yet Shimmer is never heavy-handed or preachy with its underlying message. It is primarily a fun, enjoyable read, and you’ll be rooting for Riley to succeed at freeing herself, Bodhi, Buttercup, and everyone else Rebecca has made her prisoners...Shimmer is a novel that will stay with you for a long time... The first book in the series is Radiance I highly recommend both it and Shimmer to anyone who likes reading touching and often humorous supernatural fantasy novels.”

"It's hard not to fall in love with Riley and think of her as kid sister. She's defiant, strong willed and is on a mission to help those who are in need of assistance in crossing over…Shimmer has a lot of elements to the story that make this an engaging read. I felt that Riley as a character matured more after seeing the unimaginable things that happened to the slaves on Virgin Islands during the turn of the century. It's heartbreaking, but a key element to the story and one I felt Alyson wrote well. I really liked the message Shimmer has. To love and forgive is to be free from hate and anger. I would recommend this for middle graders and fans of Alyson's Evermore series. I'm looking forward to reading Riley's third book, Dreamland when it's out this fall.”—4 Stars, Mundie Moms

“Noël ably captures the cadence of tweenspeak in this lively, action-packed adventure.”--Booklist

"Bestselling author Alyson Noël gives fans the second book in her fascinating series about Riley Bloom and her life after death. The character of Riley brings a lot of energy to the story, and her clumsy but heartfelt attempts to do what's right are endearing and contagious. Her strong views on life (and the afterlife) and her bickering with the frustrated Bodhi are amusing and compelling. She uses a clever approach to sharing the many horrors of the characters by taking Riley's first-person point of view along with her when she steps into the others' nightmares, experiencing their terrors as her own. She also offers quite a few interesting topics and words of wisdom on which readers can contemplate during and after reading, including destiny, free will, fate, the fact that "words have the power to harm or heal" and that "anger and guilt mixed together made for a pretty strong brew --- one that could trap a person forever."" --Chris Shanley-Dillman,

“Riley, who appeared in ghost form to her older sister, Ever, in Noël's bestselling Evermore, takes center stage in this middle-grade spinoff, first in a planned series. . .her wit, attitude, and maturation should have readers gladly following her into the second installment.”--Publisher’s Weekly

“This new series is by the author of The Immortals where readers first meet Ever and Riley. Narrating in a contemporary voice with an honest and comfortable cadence, Riley is imperfect, but always likable as she sweeps readers to her faraway land where she makes herself and readers assess their behaviors and, quite possibly, make adjustments. In the midst of this wildly fanciful setting, Noël is able to capture with nail-on-the-head accuracy common worries and concerns of today’s tweens.” –School Library Journal

“RADIANCE has a fast-moving storyline with lots going on, urged on by a natural curiosity and fascination for the afterlife. Riley is a wonderful companion for the story, full of energy and curiosity, with a streak of arrogance battling with a bit of insecurity. Noël has an amazing talent for words, creating a rollercoaster of emotions with tickling curiosity, delicious spookiness, overwhelming sorrow and sparkling hope. This new series has an awesome beginning, and there’s plenty of potential for more riveting storylines. Fans will be looking forward to the second installment, which is due out in the spring of 2011.”—Chris Shanley-Dillman,

“…fast paced and witty . . .an entertaining start to a strong series.”—4 stars, RT magazine

“Riley is such a great, refreshing character and I loved her voice. She has some great inner monologues that made me laugh out loud. . .I really enjoyed Radiance. While it's a spin off from Alyson's Immortal series, you don't need to read Evermore to understand what is happening. It's the first in a middle grade series, but I'd definitely recommend YA fans of Alyson Noel to pick it up. I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next with Riley and Bodhi.” Mundie Moms

“A tale for lovers of the genre . . . For those preteens who like a mild supernatural adventure with romantic overtones, you go, ghost.” —Kirkus Reviews

“All I can say is, “It’s about time Riley got her own story.” Listening to Ms. McInerney tell the tale led to many humorous moments and I found myself giggling out loud. The tension between Bodhi and Riley is papable as the story is read and unfolds. Listening to Riley’s trials and errors is definitely a treat for the ears. Overall, RADIANCE is a wonderful story and the audio book uses just the right tone for Riley’s voice. The book is appropriate for anyone from middle school up.” 5 Stars, TeensReadToo (for the audio book)

This is a suspenseful, scandalous, and consumable novel that is sure to gain instant fandom and leave readers eagerly awaiting the next installment. VERDICT A must-have selection for older teens."– School Library Journal

".. readers looking for a breezy, glamorous look into LA's underworld, this is the page turner for the job." --Booklist

"Not all of LA’s beautiful people lead beautiful lives. Alyson Noel shows us with the details of an observant insider what they’re really up to, late into the night. Like a good celebrity, Unrivaled is mysterious and compelling and so gorgeous you won’t be able to look away." -Cecily von Ziegesar, author of the Gossip Girl series

“This glitzy, suspenseful, shamelessly addictive read offers an all access pass to the glimmering world of Hollywood celebrity, where fame is a game, dark secrets are currency, and love doesn’t come without a high price.” –Margaret Stohl, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Creatures

"UNRIVALED will have you hooked from the very first page. Everything from the glitzy setting to the suspenseful plot is pure gold." -- Jamie McGuire, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Disaster

"If you love Pretty Little Liars, you'll love this sexy teen drama set against the backdrop of the glamorous LA club scene-where every choice poses a threat and nothing is what is seems."
- Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Creatures and author of Unbreakable

"Unrivaled reveals the dark, grittier side of fame and leaves the reader caught in a web of suspense and lies."
- #1 New York Times Bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout

"Pulling back the curtain on Hollywood's nightclub scene, Alyson Noel's Unrivaled has it all-glamour, passion, scandal, and even a missing starlet. This book is exactly what YA needs. More please!"
- Kimberly Derting, author of the Body Finders series

"UNRIVALED is addictive! With a killer cliffhanger and twists around every corner, I couldn't stop reading this novel. Now I'm impatiently waiting for the second book in the Beautiful Idols series." --Anna Todd, bestselling author of the After series

"Noel cycles among the stories of Layla, Tommy, Aster, and Madison in a gossipy, third-person narrative that makes for addictive reading ..." _ Publisher's Weekly

"Noël aims for the celebrity-hungry chick-lit crowd and scores...Chick-lit gold." - Kirkus

BLACKLIST reviews:

"Like its predecessor, this is tailor-made for readers interested in getting lost in the glitzy, sexy world of Hollywood stars. Best-selling Nöel won’t stay on shelves long, and another cliff-hanger ending means that those hanging on to find out the truth about Madison’s disappearance should fasten their seatbelts: this ride isn’t remotely over."- Booklist"

"This second installment picks up where the first volume left off and reveals the vulnerabilities of the characters either loved or loathed in Unrivaled. Whereas the previous entry reveled in the excess and dog-eat-dog world inhabited by the teens, in Blacklist the setting is the background for a good old-fashioned whodunit. The scandalous, gossipy tone of the first book is underscored as the teens grapple with the underbelly of fame, notoriety, and the realization that nothing is as it seems. Like its predecessor, this is a suspenseful page-turner that is teasingly addictive; it works as a stand-alone entry in the series and as a worthwhile sequel."--Tamela Chambers, Chicago Public Schools

“Although Alyson Noel is best known for her lighter, contemporary stories, she has taken a serious, heartbreaking plot line and turned it into a winner that you’ll never forget. I found myself as immersed into Zoë’s life as Echo did, and found it hard to put the book down the entire time I was reading. Ms. Noel has done an awesome job with this weightier subject matter, and I hope to read more stories in this vein from her in the future.” 5 Stars, GOLD AWARD –Jennifer Wardrip, TeensReadToo

"There's both heartbreak and humor in this one. . . I loved it."--Carol Fitzgerald,

"Reveals the hidden dangers of social networking on the Internet and date rape drugs. Noel get the message across without being preachy; readers will learn from it and enjoy the novel's suspense and intrigue." --School Library Journal

"This is one of Alyson Noël’s stronger books, with lots of emotion and depth. 5 STARS."- Kimberly Pauley, Young Adult Books Central (YABC)

"This well-written story is both tragic and optimistic. Besides coping with her own grief, Echo must deal with the additional pressure of being overprotected by her numb, pill-popping mother and her absentee father. Echo decides to have a heart-to-heart discussion with her parents and this leads to positive changes. Zoë's family members and friends demonstrate that love and memories do not have to die along with the loved one. Noel's novel will remind readers to appreciate the people in their lives."- Mary Jo Edwards, Children's Literature

"Noel tells the story through the first-person narrative of Zoë's and Echo's diaries, using a conversational style that makes a quick read . . .these issues merit discussion, and Noel presents them without preaching or judging."- VOYA

"Alyson Noel stunned me once again with her book, Saving Zoe. I have read books by Alyson Noel before, but this is by far my favorite. . .It's hard not to get sucked in as you laugh with Echo's first boyfriend problems and even harder when you cry at the issues she must confront as she learns more and more about her sister. This book has become one of my favorites of all time!"-- By The Book Reviews

". . .Noel's writing was beautiful and powerful. From reading this book, I have learned to appreciate the time I have with my loved ones. I recommend this book to every teenager out there!"-- Flamingnet Reviews

"This is a book about loss; deep, profound loss. Alyson Noel has woven together all the challenges young teens face and given it a title. Saving Zoë is beautifully written and will capture the attention of any young teen.. . I loved Saving Zoë; it captivated me to the point where I could not put it down. I was as intrigued to read Zoë’s diary and learn her story as much as Echo herself. This book has everything and is incredibly inspiring. Saving Zoë shows you how you can bond with family even after they are gone. I loved every minute of this novel. ..The only rating I can give Saving Zoë is 5 stars." -- Emma-Lee Kramer, Junior Advisory Board, Chapters, Indigo, Coles

"Saving Zoë is heartbreaking, frightening, yet also tender and funny. It's story about loss, recovery, and the unbreakable tie between sisters. Be warned: this one probably will make you cry." --Poised at the Edge

"Noël writes this Christmas comedy with lots of zing and bubbling humor. . .An amusing Christmas story for preteens." --Kirkus

"Noël has crafted a quick, compelling, energetic modern-day fairy tale for every tween who has ever wished for fame. In the delightful vein of Freaky Friday, there is a lesson here about satisfaction and gratitude, but it runs second to a charming, funny, often surprising, and very current Cinder-fella story. This is a Hollywood blockbuster waiting to happen." --Booklist

"Told in an easygoing, conversational style, the text is appealing and chock-full of humor. VERDICT A unique twist on the typical holiday story, perfect for readers wondering what their dream life would be like." - School Library Journal

"Readers will enjoy getting an imaginary backstage pass to Nick’s indulgent new world, and his mix of swagger and uncertainty make him an entertaining narrator ... The giltz and glamour of Nick’s wish lets readers contemplate the current state of celebrity while helping camouflage the message that the grass isn’t always greener, even when it comes with a mansion and chauffeur."- Publisher's Weekly

"Nick catches the spirit—and sharing that spirit isn’t a bad way for readers to while away some winter break vacation days."--The Bulletin

"Noël’s story is a much-needed one, providing an introspective look at the uncertainty that young tweens go through, when they’re trying to balance innate drive and the desire to be liked. Nick’s journey, as he goes from questioning the merits of his actual life, to the wish-fulfilled pop star life are funny and eye-opening, as he learns about personal relationships, and what he wants and doesn’t want from life. Noël has some genuinely spectacular dialogue detailing Nick’s transformation...Ultimately, his growth will help readers reexamine their own lives too." --The Reading Nook

“This is the kind of book that kids will get excited about it and want their friends to read to share in the adventures. She grabs your interest from the first page with vivid descriptions and makes you feel like there is someone sitting right in front of you spinning an intriguing tale of magic and fantasy…Described as the perfect story for Tim Burton fans, I’d have to say that’s fairly accurate and would love to see what he could do with this on the big screen. Although there are some creepy parts it ends in this incredibly beautiful sunny way that leaves your heart happy.”—

5 Stars- TeensReadToo:". . .Teen girls will totally love CRUEL SUMMER by Alyson Noël. The story is told using letters home, the journal her mother gave her, “Colby’s Journal For Desperate Times…,” and her new blog. The range of emotions, devastating lows to breathtaking highs, and the intense feeling that everything affects her is so authentic. The reader will relate to her habit of over-thinking every comment, gesture, or word of an email, and the insecurity she feels around Yannis. I loved this book and totally devoured it. For this reason, I give it five stars!" Cana Rensberger, TeensReadToo

"The protagonist's venting and observations are alternately whiny, wistful, strident, and hilarious. Despite typical teen self-obsession, Colby is likable and ultimately well intentioned. As she deals with her feelings, she blunders her way rather charmingly into a new maturity." School Library Journal

"Noel convincingly captures Colby's self-transformation as the character comes full circle and realizes that perhaps instead of fighting life and all the things out of her control, she should let go and embrace them. Through the typing fingers of Colby Cavendish, Noel teaches her readers that all the years of suffering through teenage awkwardness are just a phase and, in the end, if a person allows it, she can learn more about herself than she ever thought possible." Kristine Medeiros- CIUDADmagazine

"The lovely descriptions of beaches and the beauty of Greece will make readers want to get plane tickets over there. Alyson Noël, author of KISS BLOG and SAVING ZOE, does a great job in all her books of showing the fallout and hope that can come after what seems like devastating mistakes. Colby is a mess at first, and readers will feel like yelling at her for some of her choices, even while wanting to comfort her. But who wouldn’t like to rewind the clock sometimes? Not everyone has a chance to go to a beautiful island in Greece to get perspective, but anyone can try to start fresh."--Amy Alessio,

"Though Cruel Summer addresses the usual sort of teen angst, it stands out from its peers for both its unusual Greek island setting, and for the honesty and vulnerability of Colby's blog and journal entries. It makes for an absorbing read."-Hilary Williamson, Book Loons

"Alyson Noel ROCKS at creating the angst and voice of teenage girls, and Colby Cavendish, the main character of Cruel Summer is a witty, thoughtful chick to spend the summer with. Cruel Summer is a great read - better than my fave books from Noel, KISS & BLOG and SAVING ZOE."- Chicklitgurrl

"I really enjoyed reading Cruel Summer by Alyson Noel. It was a very unique book filled with love, hate, adventure, and many unforgettable opportunities and experiences. I thought it was cool how the author wrote the book like it was partly a blog, a regular story, and a diary. . .Overall, Cruel Summer was a great novel that I definitely recommend to teenage girls looking for a little summer romance."--Flamingnet Reviews

"Just finished this book, and absolutely loved it. Despite this being Alyson's 5th or 6th book, this is my first Alyson Noel book. And I am looking forward to reading more. Colby is lovable and humorous in her telling of her life on Tinos through journal entries, letters, postcards, and blog entries. Told in this particular way, the book becomes a quick, absorbing read and very summery. I also loved Noel's way of dealing with Colby's parent's divorce and her emotions about it- they were very realistic. As the summer winds to a close, put this book on the top of your reading pile. It's a perfect way to end the summer." --Book Chic

"Winter shows real growth throughout the novel and finds her way with new friends, a boyfriend, and even her mother. A good choice for reluctant readers, the story also has enough substance to appeal to any reader." —Tina Zuback, School Library Journal

"Like previous Noël characters, Winter is interesting because she isn't one dimensional. She's got some conflicts. . .she learns some things along her journey. . .a satisfying ending. 5 Stars." —Kimberley Pauley, YA Books Central

"Readers will empathize with Winter's desire not to be 'invisible' as well as her need to be herself." —VOYA

" . . .Using laugh-out-loud humor and realistic everyday situations, Alyson Noël produces a fun journey of self-discovery that shouldn't be missed." —Natasha Smith, Romance Junkies

"Alyson Noël's Fly Me to the Moon . . .like a "Grey's Anatomy" of the skies, with friends and power plays and a woman who needs to find herself before she can ever really find love. . . It's easy to cheer for Hailey, who is smart and warm if a little confused, and who learns—as we do—that the pleasure is not in the destination, but in the journey itself." —Barbara Samuel,

". . .A humorous look at the life of a flight attendant, and I commend her for originality." —Diana Risso,

"Laguna Cove is a super-easy, fast, fun read. All you need to enjoy summer is this book, a pool, and a cold drink!" —5 Stars—Taylor Rector, TeensReadToo

"...Laguna Cove is a great new novel from the author of Art Geeks and Prom Queens. You can almost feel the salt spray on your face, the isolation of living in a new place and struggling to fit in, not to mention the thrill of first love that Anne and her friends experience. The great array of characters with different life experiences, personalities and home lives but a common love for surfing adds variety and surprises. Alyson Noël truly captures what it's like to be a teenager struggling to find herself. A must read!"

"Read the juiciest novel about the real O.C. A must for the beach." Seventeen Magazine

"I absolutely loved this novel ...Alyson Noël is a brilliant author who really captures the essence of her lead character and all the highs and lows of being a teenage girl in a world of superficiality and backstabbing drama queens ... brilliant...deliciously funny. I was snorting with laughter from page one until page two hundred and twenty-six! Art Geeks and Prom Queens is a must read!" —Portrait magazine

"Fans of Gossip Girls and other series about the rich and gorgeous will recognize all the familiar elements here: designer labels, gleaming houses, and a model-perfect, central character drawn straight from the fashion fantasies of Teen Vogue. However, Noël, the author of Faking 19 (2005), writes with a bit more humor and authenticity than some of her chick-lit contemporaries..." —Booklist

"Art Geeks and Prom Queens is a fun and funny read, as you might guess from its quirky title, with wittier writing than some of the very popular chick lit for teens..."

Noël's debut novel is realistic and convincing. Alex and M are fresh and endearing, and anything but superficial. First-person narration and situations dealing with sex, drugs, and alcohol make this a compelling look at one teen's broken life and how she fixes it. Readers will relate to both characters and their lives." —School Library Journal

"...Alex is likeable and her handling of situations is realistic. It is a novel most appropriate for readers eighth grade and up and will appeal to those who like Judy Blume and the Gossip Girl series..." —Children's Literature Review

"Alex and M, despite their foolish mistakes, are fresh and endearing characters." —

"...Alyson Noël still manages to create characters that I can identify with. Underneath the glamorous exterior, Alex is just another girl struggling to get through her high school years. Along the way, she learns an invaluable rule of life: Success is a gift that you give to yourself. 5 Stars." —TeensReadToo
