Everneath by Brodi Ashton - A Review


What I'm reading now  Everneath
Amazing cover, right?
Here's the blurb from Amazon:

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she’s returned—to her old life, her family, her boyfriend—before she’s 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 precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance—and the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is 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 queen.
Everneath is a captivating story of love, loss, and immortality from debut author Brodi Ashton.

What did I thinK?

Brodi Ashton has produced an original, interesting story. This was not a book I devoured and couldn't put down from the moment I picked it up. It was slow and steady read-one to pick up before bed and enjoy. I love the twist on the mythology of the underworld. This story brought me where I didn't know I'd ever go-a world that is foreign and scary. It's fun to discover a new world.

One thing I didn't like was Nikki, the main character. She came into the story weak, which is fine, but I didn't feel she went anywhere. I thought Jack moved, however. What a doll. It was hard for me to buy the love story between them. I needed more and what did come, came too late for me to really care.

Brodi is a very talented author and anyone who enjoys paranormal books with a touch of romance, will love this book.

I can't wait for the sequel. Everneath has a nail-biter ending.

Don't own it? Now's your chance. There's a killer deal on Amazon.  Buy Everneath.
