Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity — a debt that should’ve been hers. She’s living a borrowed life, and she doesn’t know what to do with the guilt. And every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away.

Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen — and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to assist her in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.

Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated — and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack — even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

Everbound is the sequel to Everneath.  In Everbound, Nikki is trying to adjust to life without Jack.  She is bullied and blamed by those around her and her father thinks she is going (or already is) crazy.  Nikki is trying desperately to get Jack back and that journey to get to Jack takes up a majority of the book. 

I felt badly for Nikki throughout most of the book. She really loves Jack deeply and is trying desperately to get Jack back once and for all.  I think this book really shined in that journey. Brodi Ashton writes fantasy well (and I hope she writes fantasy in her next series).  I found myself much more engrossed in this book than I did in Everneath. 

Everbound is full of action and paranormal elements.  Fans of the first book in this series won't be disappointed.  Everbound ended with a pretty devious twist and made me eager to see what happens in the final book in this trilogy.


PS- Cole, you stink.


PPS- Jack, what are you hiding?

  1. I love paranormals with a good twist. I'll have to look it up. Thanks.

  2. I wholeheartedly second your PS-I hated Cole at the end of this book (and actually through most of this book as well).
