Book Description

Jan. 16 2012 Everneath

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.

Everneath is a captivating story of love, loss, and immortality from debut author Brodi Ashton.

Review

“Ashton’s debut, is complex and intriguing. Drawing inspiration from such myths as Osiris, Orpheus, and Persephone, it explores the nature of loss and longing and what it means to be alive.” (Publishers Weekly)

“I was pulled under by this bittersweet, beautiful retelling of the Persephone myth. Ashton’s lovely storytelling and strong-on-her-own-terms main character set this one apart. Wonderful!” (Ally Condie, author of the MATCHED trilogy)

“The powerful emotions, moving and painful rebuilding of strained relationships, and star-crossed love story is sure to resonate with teen readers.” (School Library Journal)

“The author brings a fresh, innovative concept to young adult fiction with well-developed characters and a fantastic plot line .... Libraries are advised to buy multiple copies-this one will fly off the shelves.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review))

“Enthralling and suspenseful, EVERNEATH is pure indulgent escapism!” (Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of HUSH, HUSH and CRESCENDO)

I received this e-ARC for review from the publisher through NetGalley. I did not receive any compensation for my review, and the views expressed herein are my own.

This is Ashton's debut novel, and I found it very hard to put down!

I was immediately drawn to this book because of the gorgeous cover. I love the red/black colour combination, and that dress is simply amazing!

At the beginning of the story, 17 year-old Nikki Beckett is awakening from something called "the Feed." She is with Cole, the Everliving that she was feeding for 100 years in a place known as the Everneath. Cole has been feeding off Nikki's emotions, and she shouldn't have survived the Feed...yet, somehow, she did. Cole wants her to become an immortal, like him, and live with him forever but she wants to return to her home. The only thing that she can remember about her life back on Earth (the "Surface") is a boy with brown eyes and brown hair, and Nikki feels compelled to find him.

Nikki returns from the Everneath to find that only six months have gone by. She cannot explain her absence, and everyone thinks that she became addicted to drugs and simply ran away. No one would believe her if she told them where she really was. Because of Nikki's decision not to remain in the Everneath with Cole, she has only six months on the Surface before she has to return to the Tunnels to power the Everneath for eternity. She is determined to make things right and say her goodbyes and not leave without a trace like the last time. Coming back is a selfless act, because she knows that she cannot stay and that she will only have to return to the Everneath. For Nikki, coming back will make it ultimately more difficult on herself because she has to leave again.

So, Everneath started of a bit boring for my taste and I wasn't sure I was going to be all that into it or enjoy it as much as everyone else seemed to. But, I was WRONG! I was so freaking wrong, it's crazy. Now, after finishing the book, I can't even remember what I didn't like at the beginning. I really can't. This book was so very good. And that ending!! Oh. My. I can't believe that ending. Now I absolutely positively must read the next book right away! No waiting this time.

I really enjoyed the story. I like reading new modern twists on Greek Myths and this one did not disappoint. Nikki, the narrator of the story, had a bit of a rough time a few months ago and made a decision that changed her life. She was taken to the Everneath. Now, after deciding to Return to the human world, she has six months to make amends and make a big decision that will affect the rest of her life. I really liked Nikki. I thought that she was relateable and easy to connect with. I really felt for her sometimes, but she could also be frustrating as hell! She is one of those characters that makes decisions or does certain things that just makes the reader want to slap the silly out of her.

Nikki's boyfriend on the surface is Jack...well, he was her boyfriend before she left. At first, I wasn't sure I liked Jack. He seemed like your stereotypical jock, with his many past girlfriends before Nikki. As it turns out, though, he really did love Nikki and he's not the person I thought he was. He is actually very endearing.

Cole is the confusing dude who took Nikki and sucked her dry of emotions and, ultimately, is the reason she is facing the fate she is throughout this story. I'm not sure about my feelings for Cole. One minute I liked him and the next I couldn't stand him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everneath Feb. 28 2012
By Avery Greaves TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I think that what I enjoyed most about this book was that Nikki was so different from the large majority of female YA characters today. She wasn't an untouchable cage-fighter like Saba, a bow-bearing hunter like Katiss or a whip-wielding gal like Izzy, rather, she was emotionally and mentally strong (and very much kick-butt in her own sense).

In all honesty when I saw that this book jumped around quite a bit in the time sequence (ie. 3 months before the Feed, 2 weeks before the Tunnels, and whatnot) I rolled my eyes and thought to myself, "Ugh... It's going to be one of *those* books" (you know *those* books, the ones that throw a ton of flashbacks at you- flashbacks that you frankly don't care about because all you want to read about is the here-and-now, specifically about how the leads, in this case, Nikki and Jack's, relationship is growing)- but it wasn't in the slightest. In fact, I really enjoyed learning about Nikki and Jack's past, it really made the ending all the more heartbreaking.

All in all, while I was admittedly unfamiliar with the the Greek myth of Persephone I did very much enjoy this book- I think that this is very much one of those books who will appeal to both those already familiar with the tale and those unfamiliar (and admittedly after having read this book I have found myself curious about the myth of Persephone and want to learn more about it).

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from Esther's Ever After Feb. 9 2012
By Brenna TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I was expecting yet another retelling of a familiar Greek story when I began reading Everneath; but instead, I was left breathless, stunned by this creative and daring spin on a story making it something entirely new, fresh, and exciting.

Woven together with grief, hope, and love is one inspring tale that will grow on you more and more over the course of reading it.

Reasons to Read:

1.A retelling & a story of its own:
I was expecting a typical Hades & Persephone myth (which are dime a dozen in YA these days) but I really loved how Brodi Ashton took some familiar elements and themes from the myth and integrated them into her own story; it never really feels like an exact retelling, and creativity abounds. I loved the mythology of the Everneath and Everlivings, and thought it was a fascinating concept to use.

2.Grief & broken hearts:
I was also surprised by how much Everneath dealt with Nikki's (and other's, but particularly Nikki) grief and coming to terms with moving on and letting people go; it's a much heavier aspect of the novel, but one I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated. But I have to admit... that ending kind of broke my heart a little bit. Okay- more than a little bit. It's a bit of a tearjerker. Be prepared with kleenex.

3.Heartbreaking romance:
Oh boy, is this ever a story of lost love! But there's something really beautiful about it, and the way that Nikki and Jack's relationship comes about just flows so naturally and develops really well (as the story progresses through the flashbacks to explain it). Their relationships just felt so alive to me, and their chemistry was apparent.
