Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

By 2:17 PM , , ,

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...

(Summary via GoodReads)

If the beautiful cover wasn't enough to suck you in, this beautiful story will certainly do the trick. I'm a sucker for stories about any kind of mythology involved and this one had me hook, line, and sinker.

In Ashton's tale we meet seventeen year old Nikki coming back from the Everneath (Underworld) after six months have past in the real world and 100 in the Everneath. Trying to piece together broken relationships that she left before disappearing.

The most important being the relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Jack.

Oh, and have I mentioned Cole?

Cole is the gorgeous immortal boy who seduced Nikki in the first place to go to the underworld and now she has to choose between the worlds.

I felt for Nikki and really am rooting for her to be with Jack because you feel like this is what she really wants, but of course my images of Cole in my head kind of want me to root for her going to be with Cole forever. Alas we will not find out until the next book, which I'm anticipating very highly.
