From Goodreads:
After fighting for centuries to be together, Ever and Damen’s future hinges on one final showdown that will leave readers gasping for breath. Don’t miss this explosive new installment of the #1 bestselling series that’s enchanted millions across the world! 

Haven still blames Ever for the death of her boyfriend Roman, no matter how hard Ever’s tried to convince her it was an accident. Now she’s determined to take Ever down…and destroy Damen and Jude along the way. Her first step is to tear Ever and Damen apart—and she has just the ammunition to do it. 

Hidden in one of Ever’s past lives is a terrible secret about Damen—a secret that illuminates new facts about her relationship with Jude, but that’s so dark and brutal it might be enough to drive her and Damen apart once and for all. As Ever faces her greatest fears about the guy she wants to spend eternity with, she’s thrust into a deadly clash with Haven that could destroy them all. 

Now it’ll take everything she’s got—and bring out powers she never knew she had—to face down her most formidable enemy. But in order to win, she must first ask herself: is her own survival worth dooming Haven to an eternity of darkness in the Shadowland? And will learning the truth about Damen’s past hold the key to their future?

I definitely liked this better than the previous book. 
Night Star follows Ever as she comes to terms with the fact that with Roman gone there are no other leads to finding the antidote her and Damen need to truly be together. Ever has trouble dealing with the fact that her former best friend wants to kill her, and the fact that Damen is keeping secrets from her. As ever tries to work through all of her problems, she finds herself being tossed into the shadowland and finding out everything about Damen and discovering everything he kept from her resulting on her returning to the real world and bringing her and Damen closer.

Ever actually really annoyed me in this book, how she wouldn't speak to Damen not even giving him a chance to explain and totally leading Jude on as she was going through the confusion of which guy she is supposed to be with. I was very glad that she finally choose for good which guy she is going to be with.

I found that the beginning of the book was quite slow but it picked up about a third of the way through and turned out to be my favourite of the series so far. However i cannot help but think it is just a stepping stone towards the next and final book of the series. It seems like Alyson Noel is just trying to spread teh story out for another book with not a lot happening apart from finding out the secrets and dealing with Haven.
I cannot wait to read the last instalment of the series and find out how it all ends
