Confused but thinking quickly she manifests a car and goes to the Montage hoping that Damen went on ahead there. When Ever gets to the hotel and asks the desk clerk about Damen's reservation the clerk informs her that she cannot give out the information to her because she didn't make the reservation. Knowing she has no choice now Ever calls Sabine and tells her that Damen canceled on her and she won't be able to make dinner.
Distraught Ever goes to Damen's house, heartbroken she goes to his speical room curls up on his velvet sofa and cries herself to sleep. When Monday comes Ever is determined to talk to Damen, when she gets to school she attemps to speak with Damen about what happened on Friday. However she is floored to realize that when she tries to talk with him he compeltely ignores her. Running out of options Ever probes Damen's mind and her worst fears are realized; Damen has no memory of their relationship and thinks that Ever is a freak and loser. Roman soon tells her that using his Immortal hyptionism he has driven all of the students, including Damen, Haven and Miles to believe that Ever is a freak, isolating her from everyone and everything.
However none of the students realize what is going on, drawn to Roman allowing him to control them. Ever is determined to save Damen not knowing who to trust but having on choice she contacts psychic Ava. They tell her Ever she must locate the Akashic Records explaining that they are a perment record of everything that has ever been said or thought or done or will ever be said, thought or done. Thorugh they caution Ever by saying that she will locate the Akashic Records only if she is meant too.
If she isn't then she won't. The Records contian large crystal light screens which provide information she then asks the Records to tell her everything about Damen's past and the crystal screen that she is sitting in front of soon projects his memories onto it.

Ever quickly starts to see all of Damen's memories but is unable to watch Damen's early years of his and Drina's marriage and asks the Records that it just skip over it. Ever soon returns to Summerland and the Akashic Records now able to handle seeing Damen's life with Drina. WIth her new perspective The Records allows her acess to Damen's early childhood memories.
They then show her how Damen's parents died and the horrible abuse he suffered at the hands of the church. She discovers that Roman was one of the many orphans that Damen and Drina changed into Immortals during the sweep of the Black Death. She furher discovers that Roman harbored a deep love for Damen's wife, Drina, however she never loved him back this caused Roman to become filled with jelaously and revenge thinking that if he just got Damen out of the way then he and Drina could be together, so he spent the next six hundred years plotting his revenge on Damen.
However according to Roman he knows another way to kill an immortal his way is to poison the elixir. Ever must wait for the Blue Moon to appear otherwise without it's energy she won't be able to time travel. Ever is forced to decide between staying in the present and saving Damen; or going back to the past and saving her family from that accident the claimed them. While sitting on the steps outside of the Great Hall of Learning Ever with Ava's help create a powerful new shield for her.
It's just like the remote I have at home. Only this one is invisible so I can pretty much take it where ever I go. Because of the remote she is able to stop relying on her iPod to drown out unwanted psychic enegry. Before Ever leaves she resloves on breaking Roman's hold over the school, she tries mulitple things to break his grip but nothing works. They rub their eyes, blinking, yawning, and stretching, as thorugh awakening form a very long nap. Gazing in confusion, wondering why they're on top of the table with the very same people they once deemed as freaks. I can't help but smile, knowing the big happy family is back to their normal rountine, of name-calling, eye-rolling, and snubbing each other in favor of their usual cliques, returned to a world where animosity, and loathing still rule.
My school is back to normal again. She then takes Damen to Ava's house and gets Damen to drink the posion-free exlir she made for him. Ever then leaves him with Ava trusting her to look after him and contiune to feed him the exlir they made toegether. Romy and Rayne are outside waiting for her and give her a cyrptic warning, but determined to go back to the past Ever ingnores them. She then rushes into the Halls. So please, let me go back. Back to Eugene, Oregon. Back to my mom and dad, and Riley, and Buttercup.
Please, just let me return As Ever slides into the desk a large crystal globe leviates before her, flickering. It shows a scene form her past. So I take a deep breath, press my finger to the screen and gasp as everything around me goes black. She goes to back to Eugene, and soon relives everything all over again: She babysits Riley while her parents go out as she had before the accident; and the next day she goes camping with her family.
Riley approaches and tells Ever to hurry up, then she asks if Ever has her sky-blue Pinecone Lake cheerleading camp sweatshirt, which she had forgotten the first time around. Riley says it was destiny that she, Buttercup, and their parents were meant to die; Ever was meant to live. Finally realizing that her place was always with Damen in Califorina, Ever goes back to the present and finds Damen.
When she get's to Damen's she finds Rayne in the basment and sees that she has made a circle to protect Damen and keep Ever out. Rayne then reveals to her that after Ever left, Ava took the elixir that they had made togther and fled town, leaving Damen to die. Ever is shocked by this new information.
Roman is there and says that he has made a anitdote to save Damen. However, he says that Ever needs to cut herself so they can add her blood to the antidote, explaining that it is the only way the antidote will work. Ever turns her back on Rayne, listens to Roman, and adds her blood to the antidote. After she feeds Damen the antidote, he comes back to life, much to Ever's great relief. Roman happily reveals that when she added her own blood to the mix she created a powerful curse, if Damen and Ever touch he will die and his soul will be cast into the Shadowland for all eternity. Ever is devastated by the turn of events and is horrified to tell Damen the truth.
Though, she is extremely happy that Damen is alive and that they are together again. The veil of pulsating energy that Damen creates so he and Ever can touch on the earth plane. Ever is extremely grateful that Damen is free of Roman's control and that they are once again together. She finally confesses everything to him that happened while he was under Roman's influence. Damen thinks that this is all about his bad karma and that there is no hope for him.
This makes Ever furious, however he is adamant that there is nothing they can do. She refuses to accept defeat and makes Damen promise her that they will find a cure. However, the couple quickly realize they have nothing to go on and are both devastated that they will never be able to truly touch each other again.
And together, we'll find it. I know we will. We've come too far to let Roman keep us apart. But I can't do it alone.

Not without your help. So please promise mepromise you'll try. To remedy their loss of physical contact, Damen - with practice and inspiration from Summerland - creates a veil of pulsating energy. The veil that Damen creates is only visible to him and Ever, it allows the couple to "almost touch" and thus elevates some of anguish they have to endure. In order to protect her from Roman, Damen gives Ever a amulet made of crystals.
He explains that each amulet is different showing her his, he goes on to say that she must always wear it. To somewhat escape the many complications of their life, Damen and Ever skip school one day and go to an art gallery. While at the gallery Damen shows her a painting of her that was done during her past life in Amsterdam. He then shows her the name of the artist that painted it: Bastiaan de Kool.
Damen goes on to explain that Bastiaan de Kool was a reincarnation of Jude Knight. Damen says to Ever that the two of them shared a love affair before they met; she is shocked by this news. He continues by showing Ever that through out her many past lives, Jude and Ever shared many liaisons. However, she always chose Damen in her many reincarnations over Jude. Damen says that given this recent and major revelation he is going to give her time to choose between him and Jude.
Ever is adamant that she needs to make no decision, stating that Damen is the only one for her. Nonetheless, Damen is insistent on giving her time to decide, however he says that he will still watch over and continue to love her, despite the separation. Ever finally relents and they strike a deal that they will be apart for the summer; this leaves her devastated as she had hoped to spend an stress-free vacation with him. At the end of Shadowland, Ever is feeling extreme guilt about having to make Haven drink the elixir and is terrified to reveal this revelation to her best friend.
Ever goes on to confess about her and Jude's time in the hot tub and she tells him about the tattoo she saw. He goes on to say that Roman's tribe of Immortals have distorted it and that it is actually a ancient alcheimcal symbol siginfying creation out of destuction and eternal life. Just you. No one but you. She is very worried about all of her problems, Roman and how she can get the anitdote form him, the reappearnce of Ava, her lingering feelings for Jude and how Damen is now looking after the twins Romy and Rayne. Ever and Damen 'kiss' giving Ever faith that they will find a cure to Roman's curse.
She is also deeply happy that she and Damen are once again together. Damen comforts Ever with a promise to break the curse as she drinks some of her elixir. In desperation she turns to dark magick in her attempt to break the curse. Ever does a spell which she hopes will make Roman reveal to her everything about the anitdote.
However the spell backfires and instead it binds her to Roman, she soon becomes obsessed with wanting to be near him. One night Ever is so overcome with her desire for Roman she goes to his house disguised as Drina and nearly sleeps with him. However this proves extremely difficult since the spell doesn't allow her to confide in Damen on the earth plane. She becomes gaunt and frail looking, her hair looses it's luster and fullness and her skin becomes acne riddled.
Also because of her dealings with the darker side of magick she is hardly able to manifest and her telepathy with Damen is virtuously nonsexist. Eventually she is able to beat her addiction to dark magick and finds information that is able to help her. She then does a ritual simlar to what she did for the binding spell but she says a diffrent incantation hoping that it will relive her of the spell she is under. A fierce wind blows over her it destorys the underwater cave she in leaving Ever kneeling on the ground of the beach. Damen explains that it took him awhile through the process went rather quickly because of Summerland.
Ever is confused she quickly calculates and comes to the conclusion that it hasn't even been a year since they got together in this life anyway. He then takes her hand and leads her into the pavilion which is elegantly decorated with beautiful murals on the ceiling. There is a incredibly soft white couch and the couple sink into it.

Ever notices a large screen, similar to the screens in the Akashic Records. He then reveals a second part of his surprise. He says that they are actually able to experience their past lives here. Ever is uncertain but Damen gently whispers to her to believe, she does and the two are soon transported back to Paris circa While in this past life Ever is thrilled to realize that they can actually touch each other again. Is, it really possible, the we can be together, -now- here? I'm afraid this is merely a theater of the past. You can edit the script, but you're not allowed to ad-lib it, or add experiences that never occurred.
This saddens Ever greatly but she accepts it and allows herself to share a much wanted intimate moment with Damen. Having finally freed herself from the spell she had created Ever still finds herself without the antidote and tries the old fashioned way of asking. However upon getting to Roman's house and within reach of gaining the antidote, Jude, the owner of the shop Ever had been working at, bursts in, willing to help Ever from what he believes is Roman hurting her. Ever is devastated, the one thing that was able to restore her and Damen's happiness, lies on the floor, gone.
And the one person who knew how to make the new antidote is a pile of dust, mixing in with the liquid. At the end of Dark Flame Ever opens her mind to Damen's and allows every single memory to flow into his mind. Including when she almost lost her virginity to Roman. Afterward, Damen looks at her lovingly and says " There's nothing there that changed my mind about you.
Not one single thing. Damen says hopefully to Ever " Either way, we'll ride it out together. That's how it is with soulmates. That's just what they do. Growing weary of her training Ever easily convinces Damen to go to their sanctuary: The Pavillion. When they get to the Pavillion they both instantly relax happy that they are in their special place and will soon be able to touch each other.
Tired of Damen always getting to "change the channels" of their past lives Ever playfully takes the remote form him. However in doing so she accidently stumbles upon a past life of hers in the Antebellum South, where she is being beaten as a slave. Damen urges her to stop watching but Ever is transfixed by the scene playing out in front of her and doesn't, and the scene soon ends. Shocked and horrified Damen explains that since he created the Pavillion he edits their past lives wanting only for them to experience happiness in the place he created for her.
He is deeply saddened that she had to see a past life of hers that was so cruel and bleak. Ever is deeply shaken by the slave life of hers she witnessed and finds it extremely difficult to forget it entirely. Damen successfully changes the subject by suggesting that he and Ever merge with one of their more happier past lives. Ever agrees, but the haunting memory of her being beaten as a slave still lingers in the back of her mind. Pushing the memory aside she gratefully takes Damen up on his idea and he and Ever happily merge with a much more romantic past life of theirs in London.
She lets her sadness go from watching her life as a slave and relishes in being able to touch Damen.

She says that she is coming after her.
Ever tries to negotiate with Haven saying that there is no reason the two of them can't just co-exist. Curious as to what Haven meant about Damen keeping something from her, Ever journeys to Summerland and the Pavillion. When she goes inside Ever is shocked when she catches Damen previewing and erasing one of her past lives. She discovers that during her slave life, Damen had taken her away from her family, her friends, and Jude without giving her a choice.
Ever is completely heartbroken, yelling at Damen on how he could still be keeping things from her, especially when she has been so open with him. He tries to explain but Ever will hear none of it, hurt and devastated, she swiftly breaks up with Damen. Throughout the novel she tries to figure out if Jude or Damen is the one she is meant to be with.
Despite Damen and Ever's deception, Miles decides to remain Ever's friend and keep their secret of immortality. Miles refuses because he wants to experience a full, rich life in order for him to become a great actor. Both Damen and Ever accept his wishes. Ever quickly realizes that Haven has become addicted to the elixir but also that Roman never passed down the recipe before he died and that the Immortals he created are fighting amongst themselves over what remains.
She also realizes that the antidote can be recovered because it had stained Roman's shirt when he had been killed but Haven has the shirt. Ever is able to see through each time they separated in the recent past, and that Damen's love for her never once wavered. She realizes that Damen is the only person she is meant to be with. Ever then kisses Damen passionately happily reuniting with him on the earth plane and transfering the memories she saw in Shadowland to him.
