Everneath - Brodi Ashton

Published: Everneath is released on January 24th (TOMORROW!). I highly recommend this read!

Synopsis: 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…

Review: To categorise Everneath as just another paranormal romance would be doing this book an incredible misjustice - it is so unlike all other paranormal romance YA novels I have read.

Everneath is the story of Nikki. After suffering the tragic loss of her mother, and complications in her love life, Nik turns to Cole. Cole as it turns out is an Everliving. The Everlivings live in the underworld and for all purposes are immortals living off the emotions of humans. Nik is bought down there with Cole for 100 years (which is only a few months on the surface).

She returns to try and make sense of her life, and tries to move on after regretting ever trusting Cole. Only to find out that she has limited time back on the surface. 6 months. Before she’ll be sucked down to a dark place called the Tunnels where she will be banished forever. Unless she can do something about it.

With the help of her boyfriend Jack, Nikki decides she is going to fight to remain on the surface to be with Jack.

I really was swept up with this story - initially I found it a little tricky since the book jumps from before The Feed to now, but really once I started paying attention to where we were the story just flowed.

I really love the depth of the characters also. I love that we see Nikki back on the surface completely drained of her emotions to start with, but we see her over the 6 months grow back into the girl she was before The Feed.

Jack was just gorgeous. I adored his devotion to Nikki, especially his tenacity drive to never give Nikki up. So sweet!

Cole… as much as he is pitted as the villain, he was kind of hot. Maybe I am the only one who thinks this? But I thought he was playing the role of the bad boy. Immortal bad boy perhaps, but he really had the one liners happening throughout the book. I loved him and hated him at the same time.

I can’t say too much because of a major spoiler alert. But I loved this book so much. I am pre-ordering myself a copy when it’s released to keep on my book shelf. The fact that this is the first book in a series is extremely exciting to me, given the MAJOR cliffhanger this book left me on!
