Everneath is the first book in the everneath trilogy by Brodi Ashton. It is about:
‘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.’
I really enjoyed this book! i thought the greek mythology aspects of it were great and really made the story its own even though there were times when i couldnt keep up with it and got very confused. this book also switched between present and past which was a bit fast at times but you get used to it. Nikki our main character is very strong willed and doesnt let anyone push her to do things she doesnt want to do! Cole was just an annoying character of being pushy and not leaving nikki alone and i know thats part of the story but i found it to be too much sometimes. Jack was such a sweet character who took it all in his stride and cared for nikki so much which was so sweet! we saw how much he cared when it came to the end. i do wish there were more scenes at the end to be able to see other characters reactions.
I gave this book 4 owls because of the times where i found the mythology confusing and how annoying cole was! 4 stars
I recommend this book to anyone who loves ya fantasy with greek mythology!
