Jaime's Review of Everneath by Brodi Ashton and a Giveaway



From Goodreads.
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...


Jaime’s review….

Brodi Ashton’s debut novel is a fresh breath of air in a genre swamped with witches, vampires, and werewolves! The mythology she brought to life in this story is amazing! I already knew the myths of Persephone and of Orpheus and Eurydice and so I was very interested to see Brodi’s take on this myth.

She did not disappoint at all!

This is my take on the story but in the synopsis above the immortal Cole is the villain. I disagree I believed time to be the bad guy and, I actually fell head over heels in love with Cole I believe he was behaving the only way he knew how. If I would have been Nikki I would have followed him wherever he asked me to. Nikki on the other hand is completely in love with Jack all her plans and her reason for coming back is Jack. I liked him but for some reason I didn’t connect with him like some of my other friends did. I figured out what was going to happen at the end of the story about half way in but that didn’t stop me from finishing I had to make sure that Brodi didn’t throw in any surprises there. Another reason I finished? Brodi’s writing is superb and I had to see how she was going to write the end and like I figured she left me wanting more! I am so happy this is a trilogy I put Everneath down and immediately wanted to start book 2 which sucks because we have a long wait for that.

Lately I’ve been posting quotes from my favorite characters to show you why I love them so now for a quote from the immortal rock god Cole ;)

“Sometimes, when something hurts us, our hearts break a little- in a slightly more… literal way than for humans. Our pain sort of spills out and onto anyone around us. We call it a cracked heart.”
I loved him before that quote and I believe I fell a bit harder at that moment!

If you like mythology or just want an awesome read this book is definitely for you! The wonderful love story will keep you turning the pages either way you read it Nikki and Cole or Nikki and Jack it is epic and I highly recommend it!   Here’s the trailer to tempt you just a little bit more!







Everneath comes out January 24th and you can pre-order it at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or the Book Depository and be sure to follow Brodi on twitter and check out her website!

Thanks Harper Teen for the Advanced Reading Copy and Brodi Ashton for writing an incredible story!

  3. Okay, I had to comment on Jen's review first, because I wanted to see how Anti-Cole she was. Not bad. But I'm glad that you don't have a link to Air Supply in your post! :)

    Of course I'm Team Cole. But I'm one of those who love Jack too. I just love Cole a little bit more for Nikki. And a LOT more for me, LOL!

    Awesome dueling reviews!

    I can't wait until January 24 so I can read this again! Why, oh why did I send my Everneath away???
