Wyldcliffe Abbey School for Young Ladies, housed in a Gothic mansion on the bleak northern moors, is elite, expensive, and unwelcoming. When Evie Johnson is torn away from her home by the sea to become the newest scholarship student, she is more isolated than she could have dreamed. Strict teachers, snobbish students, and the oppressive atmosphere of Wyldcliffe leave Evie drowning in loneliness.

Evie's only lifeline is Sebastian, a rebellious, mocking, dangerously attractive young man she meets by chance. As Evie's feelings for Sebastian grow with each secret meeting, she starts to fear that he is hiding something about his past. And she is haunted by glimpses of a strange, ghostly girl—a girl who is so eerily like Evie, she could be a sister. Evie is slowly drawn into a tangled web of past and present that she cannot control. And as the extraordinary, elemental forces of Wyldcliffe rise up like the mighty sea, Evie is faced with an astounding truth about Sebastian, and her own incredible fate.

Gillian Shields's electrifying tale will dazzle readers with suspense, mysticism, and romance.

Sadly,I had to rewrite this review since blogger somehow deleted everything when I posted it. I happened to find this book when I was writing down a list of books I wanted to read at my school's book fair. I didn't buy it, though. So when I walked into the library one day, I found Immortal and immediately grabbed it. A day after, I also found Betrayal, also by Gillian Shields, the sequel to this book. Immortal is a story about Evie Johnson, a girl whose grandmother just recently died. Evie starts meeting a mysterious boy named Sebastian at night and finds out secrets about him and herself. Stories about her ancestors, her true identity and who she is encircles her. Evie meets Sarah and Helen, and together, they call the elemental powers and interweave them to form one powerful force. Soon, Evie finds out the truth about the amulet she wears that was given to her from her grandmother. Either Sebastian will kill her to get the amulet that will make him immortal, or he will spare Evie from a horrible fate that will end her life forever. It's up to Sebastian to save Evie-or doom her.
