A Teenager's Perspective:
If we may, we'd like to start this review by saying, that Everneath was ... absolutely mind-blowingly amazing! Like ... sag-in-your-chair, and-forget-you-have-to-go-to-
Okay, so the book starts off with Nikki leaving the Everneath, and Cole,this unbelievably sexy guy, (... we might've stayed!). Don't worry we'll get to him later (; So, Nikki is "sucked" back into Earth, where she tries to fix all her mistakes, and let the people who she hurt, know that she loves them. Do you hear that cracking noise? That is our hearts, breaking slowly ...
Nikki only has a little bit of time, before the "Shadows" come for her to take her to this Underworld place. Of course there's an easy way out, but that will require the defacation of Nikki's moral values. Clearly, Nikki chooses the higher road; sacrificing herself, for the chance to say goodbye — for real. But when she falls back in love with her ex-boyfriend, her decision, becomes their decision.
We LOVE how Brodi Ashton gives us a perspective for each character. It kind of gives you the ability to draw valid conclusions about what you think about a specific character. While we love Nikki, our favorite character is Cole!
Okay, so he's arrogant, cute, self-centered, cute, and impulsive. Did we mention cute?! He is portrayed as this bad-boy-kind-of-guy who wants what he wants; but even then, we still found ourselves cozzying up to him. Why? We don't know, the teenage mind seems to work in mysterious ways ...
Overall, this book was a 5 star all the way. We have the next novel on our to-read list. It's name hasn't been released yet? But we'll stay tuned. Plenty of Cover Love, no doubt.
