Everneath by Brodi Ashton
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
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.
This is one of the classic mistakes where I fell for the amazing cover. But the positive reviews had drawn me in too. Honestly, I couldn't understand what is so great about this book. I felt indifferent towards every characters. The romance was...urghh cheesy to the max!!! I could even predict what was going to happen in the end!
I silently wished the queen of Everneath would make an appearance and violently and brutally kills Nikki. *insert hysterical laugh*
I'm sorry, I just thought the story lacks depth and maturity.
Most importantly, it was so BORING!!!!
Some of the things that did not make sense;
Somehow the drunk and wasted brother of Jack cares to join in Nikki's little adventure of finding Cole's secret.
The first time Nikki came clean to Jack about why she'd disappeared, it happened in Jack's place. Specifically, in Jack's bedroom.
After six months of Nikki's disappearance, her dad didn't interrogate Nikki like err...how a father should do. I mean, he really believed Nikki was doing drugs and stuck in a rehab? Where was the rehab? In Narnia? Couldn't her father track the rehab down?
Gah! And few other bizarre moments which I couldn't bother to include because I want to jump into other books right now.
