Remember a few weeks ago when I mentioned that I'd read Everneath and promised to review it? Well, today is the day!
*cheers, dances, and claps*
Debut author Brodi Ashton is about to make a splash on the publishing world with this breathtaking, heart-wrenching, beautiful story of love, loss, and sacrifice. This story is unlike any I’ve read recently, with a unique format that essentially tells two stories at once, and characters that start out raw and aching right from the beginning.
Oh my gosh, you guys, I loved it. Seriously. It’s not even out yet (January—count down with me) but I can’t wait for the next one in the series. The main character Nikki (great name, don’t you think? *winks*) starts out the story as a complete mess, and throughout the whole thing, all you want is for her love interest, Jack, to take her in his arms and make her better. Except really, he can’t. And the hardest part is when you realize he would. That he would do anything to help Nikki, even with Cole pulling at her using every means at his disposal.
Check out the Blurb:
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.
Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.
As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's 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...
Doesn’t it sound just fantastic? I assure you, it is. If you’re smart (and I know you are) you’ll put Everneath at the top of your must read list for 2012. In fact, you should just pre-order it here. It’s even a great price.
To hold you over until then, you can learn more about Brodi Ashton by reading her blog or the Everneath page on the publisher's website.
