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.
When Nikki returns from the Everneath, she’s very confused and doesn’t remember much. Only one thing made her remember her life on earth and survive. Jack. Her boyfriend.
Her love for him is so strong, Nikki does everything in her power to see him again and this time she wants a proper goodbye. Something she didn’t get the last time. But time is not with her and what if Nikki hopes to get her old live back, something that is impossible.
Cole one of the Everliving and the one who has feed of Nikki, knows it’s not normal for a human to survive the feed. A century long he has feed of Nikki’s emotions to survive himself. Now he knows that Nikki is special he does everything in his power to convince Nikki to come with him and rule over the Everneath. Because what other choice does she have?
Nikki will be sucked in the tunnels, if she doesn’t go with Cole. But no matter what he say or what he does, she refuses to go with him. There’s a constant battle between Nikki and Cole. And neither one of them is willing to give up.
When Jack finds out about Nikki, he helps her to find a way out. But what if there’s no way out and the shades will come no matter what.
As a reader you don’t know what to expect and you don’t know what is going to happen. The story is beginning very slowly but the further you read, the more exiting the book will be.
There are constant flashes from the past, so you know what happened to Nikki and how Cole got involved. But you also will notice that the love between Nikki and Jack is so strong, that even Cole can get between them. That’s what makes this story so wonderful, the indestructible love. They will sacrifice everything for each other.
One thing Brodi Ashton could have done better. She could have made Jules a bigger part of the story. Jules is the best friend Nikki left behind. But when Nikki returns Jules rarely says anything. But as I’ve read it, she’s is a big part of Nikki’s life before the feed.
This book was amazing and yes it’s a good book to read, especially you want something other than the normal day fantasy and adventure. When you finished book one, you definitely want to read part two Everbound. The end is shocking and believe me you want to know what happens next.
