Book Description

Nov. 2 2010 The Skinjacker Trilogy (Book 2)
Going against Mary Hightower's wishes, Nick, "the chocolate ogre," is slowly trying to reach every kid in Everlost to hand each and every one a coin, which will release them from Everlost. Mikey McGill and Allie have joined a band of skinjackers who have more of an impact on the living world then any other inhabitant of Everlost. Except Mikey can't skinjack and Allie can - and there is a very good reason: Allie is not actually dead.

"Thought-provoking and scary, invoking elements from history and mythology, the novel ends with a shocking event that will leave its fans wanting the next volume immediately."--Horn Book Magazine

"Shusterman creates a solid, entertaining sequel to Everlost. In fact, it might even be better...The broad scope of this installment creates wonderful tension and excitement as readers flip the pages to find out what will happen next. Secondary readers of fantasy will eat up this sequel."--VOYA --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful second novel May 14 2010
By Rhea
Format:Hardcover
Everwild is a great follow up to the first book in the Skinjacker series, Everlost. Everlost is a limbo for children who, for one reason or another, do not go "into the light." Dubbed Afterlights, these lost children exist without knowledge of their previous lives and identities. In the second novel, Everlost is at war. Two sides battle it out for the souls of Everlost. One side fights to set the children free while the other fights to keep their souls trapped forever. With characters like the Sky Witch, the Chocolate Ogre and Allie the Outcast, the novel is full of rich and varied personalities that each have their own storyline. The action flows easily and the subplots are numerous. If you enjoy smartly written books, then I highly recommend this novel. I eagerly look forward to the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Everwild (A+) !! Dec 23 2009
By AC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The second of a planned trilogy, EVERWILD picks up a unspecified (but probably short) time after Everlost ends. And wow...I thought EVERLOST was good, but EVERLOST blows it out of the water in every way, shape, and form possible... A sequel that was better than the first!

EVERWILD continues the story of Allie and Nick, but their stories diverge as they pursue separate goals; Allie sets off with Mikey to find her parents in hopes that she might put her spirit to rest, while Nick finds himself against Mary Hightower in a race to find and use the lost children of, well, Everlost, for their own plans. Along the way, we are introduced to several new and unique characters that make the book that much more awesome.

Honestly, I don't think I could possibly give EVERWILD a summary worthy of its content. The summary above is only the beginning of a long and thrilling adventure. Shusterman wowed me beyond belief with his unending talent and beautiful writing, and it's clear that he pays meticulous attention to every aspect of the story. EVERWILD is a very layered book and each subplot is as interesting as the next. There are no dull moments, and I was very pulled into the story and experienced suspense and excitement and nervousness and thrills right alongside the characters. Shusterman manages to pack adventure, action, suspense, and comedy into one superb novel.

In EVERWILD, Shusterman delves deeper into the personalities of the main characters, whom are mainly Allie, Nick, and Mary. Allie and Nick are clearly protagonists, and very interesting ones at that, but I loved how Shusterman had a character like Mary, whom you couldn't be sure was truly evil or not and seemed insane yet sane, twisted yet not... The new characters were a delight; some were endearing well others gave off a rather sinister vibe.

There is only one complaint I had with EVERWILD: it had to end. I was so enthralled with everything that was happening that I was devastated when it ended. On a very cliffhanger-ish scene. But at the same time that's wonderful because it means that there is going to be more to this wonder-filled series!

A definite favourite for me and a book I'm going to recommend to everyone I know!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good follow-up Jan. 22 2010
By Taylor Corbet - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
This is the first series by Neal Shusterman I've read and I'm very impressed with the author's style and set-up. A lot of others have tried life-after-death books, but none I've seen match the complexity of Skinjacker's world. I particularly liked that the books aren't preachy, which tends to happen a lot with life-after-death novels. These really stand out in the YA genre, so I highly recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Ripper of a Good Book. Dec 21 2009
By CaterpillarGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I recieved this book, because I fell in love with the first oneEverlost (The Skinjacker Trilogy), Neil Shusterman has written a series that in such a short time has grabbed a hold of my heart and mind , I dont see it letting go!

Where Everlost left off, Everwild picks up and the transition is smooth. Mary Hightower, the sky witch, is on a mission to collect as many afterlights as possible , to make an army against the Chocolate Ogre, formally known as Nick. She doesnt like him giving her kids their coins so that they pass into the light, into heaven. She wants all the childrens souls for herself and she will stop at nothing to make sure that happens. Nick, who is now on a train with Johnnie-O and Choo-Choo Charlie the train conductor, has a bucket of coins and it has no bottom to it. He wants all the afterlights to be able to move on, when they want too and not be trapped under Mary. Problem is, he still loves her, problem is she still loves him. Nick must hunt down a legend in Everlost, an afterlight called "Zach the Ripper" who rumor has it, can rip your heart right out of your body. Meanwhile Allie (the outcast) is on her own mission, with Mikey McGill ,THE McGill. She wants to go home and see her parents, something afterlights NEVER try. But Allie can Skinjack, and when she meets up with other skinjackers? She gets even stronger in her skills, but Mikey is now the outcast, and he is growing his old skin back....the monster is still under the surface.

A war is brewing and many afterlights will find out just how strong they are, what new skills they can manifest and how strong the ties of love really are. Neal Shusterman has taken the "ghost" story and turned into into an adventure of mythic proportions. I was glued to this book, sobbing at points and giggling at others. I wont give the meat of this novel away, its too good to spoil for the rest of the world. Let me just say that it had my jaw dropping at the end.
It will get under your skin thats for sure! I cannot WAIT for the next installment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome sequel June 18 2011
By Caitlen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Neal Shusterman is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. Though his books are primarily aimed at young-adult, his writing style is such that it can be enjoyed by adults as well, without feeling like everything is overly simplified. His works are also some of the most creative that I have ever read, and Everwild, the second book in the Skinjacker trilogy, is no exception. Everwild picks up right where Everlost left us, so if you haven't read the first book you will want to do that, since not much recap is offered in this one. The souls of Everlost are preparing for war - Nick the Chocolate Ogre is doing his best to help people "get to where they are going" and out of Everlost, whereas Mary the Sky Witch it totally against this and wants to keep everyone in Everlost, forever. Meanwhile, Allie the Outcast learns to master her Skinjacking abilities - or, in "living" terms, possession of people. However, as she returns home to see her family and find out whether her father survived the accident, she discovers a shocking secret about the reason behind her skinjacking abilities.

This book was a fantastic read that was very difficult to put down. Shusterman's writing styles and concepts remind me very much of Garth Nix and the Sabriel trilogy, which are some of my favorite books of all time. The characters are very believable and real, but most importantly is the fluidity of the language - it is absolutely beautiful to read. The author definitely has a gift with words. Someone else could take the same story but use a different writing style, and it would not keep me nearly as captivated as Shusterman's. He really is a master storyteller.

If you have enjoyed any of Neal Shusterman's other works, you will definitely enjoy Everwild. Also recommended for fans of Garth Nix and fans of a bit darker fantasy.
