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.MY THOUGHTS:
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...

In a sentence: YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!
I'm serious! Whether you're a fan of contemporary novels or paranormal books (like me!), Everneath is a must-have on your shelf. It has the perfect mixture of a supernatural element, beautiful writing, and perfectly flawed characters that make your heart leap out of your chest!
Everneath was so different from the Persephone and Hades re-telling I thought it would be — and I mean that in the BEST possible way! Brodi Ashton created an original and fascinating world of immortal Everlivings that fed on humans for life, with plot twists I didn't see coming and raw emotion so powerful that I couldn't believe this was a debut!
But my absolute favourite thing had to be the characters. I connected with Nikki instantly — her mind and actions were so easy to believe and understand. And yes, there's a love triangle but it worked perfectly in this book! ♥ Both Jack and Cole were seriously two of the awesomest book boys in the history of awesome book boys (and both were also SO sweet)!
Beautiful, heartbreaking, and completely original, Everneath was a debut that stole my breath away! I would give it a million stars if I could. There aren't many books that portray human emotions this flawlessly and Brodi Ashton has definitely made my favourites list because of it! :)
BUY or BORROW?: I would buy this book for the cover alone, but what's inside is definitely worth every penny! Buy this book for sure! ;)
