Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being 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.
Anyone that has been reading this blog for awhile has probably come to understand that I am not a fan of the trend of YA trilogies/series. Everneath is the start of yet another one. However, I have to applaud Brodi Aston because she didn't end this book with a huge gaping hole. This book could be a stand alone novel.
Everneath was quite good. I was drawn in by the story. The mythology aspect was very interesting. It made me want to go learn all about the characters mentioned in the book, beyond that smattering I could muster up from middle school.
I would definitely recommend this book. I think it's appropriate for most YA. I don't recall any objectionable material, plus there's a lesson about Greek Mythology thrown in.
I also wanted to give props to the cover designer. How awesome is that?
It is a cool cover though....
