Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton (Everneath #1)



Summary (from Goodreads)

Title: Everneath

Author: Brodi Ashton 

Publication Date: 24 January 2012

Publisher: Balzer + Bray







Summary:


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.

Wow! This was fantastic. But before I tell you what I loved so much about this book, let me take us 2 years back. Why so long? In essence, this book has been on my top to read list for the last 2 years, maybe even more. However, one thing followed another and I just refused to start this book. guess, I had the hunch it would be pretty awesome… okay, so now you are wondering, how come I actually read it? It’s a pretty normal story in my life. I was returning back home from Bucharest and I wanted something to read. I had tons of other books to read. One of the first should have been Oliver Phipps’s new book: Bitter Harvest, but as always something overcame me and I just started reading it. I couldn’t’ stop until I finished it 4 hours later…

So, what made me chuckle, grin and even exclaim a bit in the plane? The story might be your another Hades and Persephone story, however, this time everything is a bit more difficult. Another thing that made me fall in love with the story is author’s writing style, and especially the way she moves back and fourth from past and present. You might think it’s hell of confusing, but no, it just gives you tons of new information to process and think who you are shipping Nikki with. Me? I’m totally team Cole. it’s true that he’s the least likable character there as he acts as the “villain” for the time being. But I really fell in love with the guy and I really want him to get Nikki. They are awesome together and she makes him a better person!

I hope you’ll find some times to read this great book, and if you have already read it, tell me your thoughts about it! I’m off to read the next book as I really want o know how it’s going to end! Enjoy it to your fullest and don’t forget to share your thoughts below! Stay turned for more reviews as promos. Don’t miss your next favourite book or manga! Happy reading!
