Synopsis: What if your destiny lay on the other side of death?

The annual Culling ceremony is a day every coming-of-age novice looks forward to within the Primeval Coven. It’s the start to being initiated into the Night Watchmen, humankind’s protectors, and it’s the long-awaited day when novices discover if they’re a Hunter or a Witch.

But this day is not a happy one for Faye Middleton. Not when she’s known her whole life that she’s a Defect and is about to face banishment in front of her fellow novices. She’s forced to attend the Culling with little hope for her future, but what she discovers about herself is far worse than she could’ve imagined. And far more dangerous.

Thrown into training and separated from her friends, Faye must learn to adjust. She struggles to find her place within the Coven, and with Jaxen Gramm, the darkly handsome and extremely unnerving man assigned to watch and protect her. Emotions run high, and when she discovers a deadly secret about him, her struggles deepen. As corruption within the Coven begins to unravel, Faye pieces together her role in saving the future of her people, and within Jaxen’s life…but will the truth save her, or be her undoing?

Review: 4 Stars - Everlasting is the first title in author Candace Knoebel’s Night Watchmen series. It’s about witches and hunters and the unique relationship between the two. With teen characters that live within a covens walls and train to be either a witch or a hunter there’s bound to be trouble and trouble finds main character Faye at every turn.

I read this book earlier this year and when I realized that I hadn’t written a review I thought signing up for this tour was the perfect chance. I enjoyed the series, the characters and Knoebels take on witches and hunters as it was all a nice change from the norm when it comes to supernatural or paranormal stories.

Faye as a character is feisty, speaks her mind and is often funny. She’s dealing with the fact that she’s a Defect and will be forced into banishment without given a chance. She’s stressed and worried about never seeing her family or friends again so she’s trying to prepare herself for what’s to come.

In the blink of an eye all that Faye knows or believes is pulled out from under her like the proverbial rug and changes her life. She’s not sure if the changes are for the better or worse yet as you read her story you see things and people who are out to make her theirs.

One of the things that I loved about Faye is that she’s not perfect. She has a lot to learn and it’s this that makes her such a likeable character. She wants all the normal things a teen girl does she just has a bit of a different life within the coven so some of those wants are a bit bigger than even her.

And then we have Jaxon… her protector who’s harboring his own secret, which is a doozy. These two have so much to overcome and while reading I often wondered if they were going to get any breaks! Jaxon as a character… yeah, I wish I could have spent some more time with him. Thankfully this is a series, so my wish will be granted! YAY for more Jaxon.

This title is filled with dangerous twists and turns for Faye and in turn Jaxon. There’s a lot going on but it’s never overwhelming. There’s also awkward moments for some of the characters that make them endearing. And romance with consequences that you can’t help but feel horrible about one minute and cheer for the next.

Those who love a YA supernatural/paranormal title with bite shouldn’t pass this one by! And the great thing is that the sequel Evernight is being released on October 31st, 2014, I know I can’t wait! I hope other readers will enjoy this title as I have. Happy Reading.
