Welcome everyone :) Things may be a little slow at the moment as I am in my last few months of school so I am swamped with work and exams but if you had time to leave a comment it would make my day!

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...

There was so much hype surrounding Everneath that by the time I picked it up my expectations were through the roof. Unfortunately it was quite as amazing as I had hoped but it was still pretty darn good!

I love books surrounding greek mythology but I must admit my knowledge is pretty poor (I must remedy that this summer!) so I cannot comment on the credibility of this aspect but regardless of how accurate was, it was thoroughly enjoyable to learn some more about Greek myths.

Lately I have been a little iffy with romantic interests but I must say I really liked Jack. He was so normal and lovely and sweet which happen to be my favourite type of boys. I also liked that, despite the love interest, Nikki wasn't acting in love with both Cole and Jack. It is hard to explain really but I think spending 100 years with a person would make you connected to them in a way you can't really help. Ashton conveyed this very well.
I really liked Nikki. She was easy to relate to and whilst she was dealing with a lot of shit she wasn't constantly moping about it for the whole novel. She starts off in a bad place but she grows throughout the novel.

The ending definitely left me wanting more and, whilst I felt the novel was lacking that special spark, I am eager to be picking up the next book in the series!

  1. Aw that's unfortunate you found it lacking that special spark, but I love Greek mythology too! I love that the main character didn't mope the entire story and actually grew. I'm curious to read about Jack too, he sounds great! :)
