Book Review: Everneath By Brodi Ashton

Name: Everneath
Author: Brodi Ashton
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Summary: 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.
Review: What a original, suspenseful, thrilling plot this book truly has. I can't compare it to any other YA I've read. This book is so atmospheric and had me literally on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. Let me start by saying how emotional this book will have you. I've never felt this emotionally drained touched and so excited from a book in awhile. The words, sentences paragraphs just has you totally memorised.

I think its so descriptive and effective. Brodi has created word images so vivid that it is almost like watching a thriller movie. She takes you for a romp through America infested with Everneath and find themselves in a action packed suspenseful event that had my heart facing and had me excited from beginning to end. This is a book for all tastes. This skilfully craft novel contains some history, mysticism, mystery, intrigue, humour and romance in a neat package that is not just entertaining but challenges your mind and imagination.

I loved the characters in this novel. My favourite was Jack. Jack the ever so sweet and sexy quarter back. Not your typical Jock he's such a likable swoon worthy character that you will all love.
Then there's Nikki the brave trouble young girl who finds herself stuck in a troublesome situation that was amazingly written by Brodi. You find yourself wanting to help Nikki through out.
AND last but not least Cole. The cocky little so and so who isn't at all what he seems. You can't help but love him and Brodi has written him so cleverly that you can't help but find entertaining.

I love the use of mythology in this novel and how it relates to Nikkis story! I think from the amount of History Brodi has defiantly done her research and it totally shows. Everneath will snatch you away into a world that will have you captivated from beginning to end. Bring on the sequel!

P.S Watch out for those tunnels! That's all I'm saying ;)
