It’s been two months since the dark tunnels of the underworld came for Nikki Beckett. That night, Nikki’s boyfriend, Jack, made the ultimate sacrifice and took her place in the Everneath for eternity – a debt that should have been hers. Every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused, and wasting away. All Nikki wants is to save him before it’s too late, but no matter how hard she tries to reach for his hand, she can never find it.
Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his Queen – and the one person least likely to help. But it seems Nikki has touched his heart, and surprisingly, Cole agrees to help in the only way he can – by taking Nikki to the Everneath himself.
As they descend into the heart of the Everneath Nikki and Cole discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated, and more deadly. Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack – even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own…
I had my eye on this series for a while. It was nothing to do with the pretty dresses *whistles innocently* okay, maybe it had something to do with the pretty dresses. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Everneath, but I can honestly say that Everbound was in my opinion, better. That’s something rare in a trilogy. I don’t usually prefer a second book. The second book is so tricky. Obviously, it being the second book makes it quite problematic to review as I don’t want too many spoilers, so apologies for the brief and vague review.
Something that stands out to me with this series is the world building. It’s incredibly creative and descriptive. It just pulls me in. I don’t know a lot about Greek mythology, but I have to say I’m developing an interest in it, because of this series. I also really appreciated how I didn’t have to take long to recall what had happened in Everneath as there was a little recap in the first few pages.
Everbound develops the characters even further. There is a little bit of a love triangle, but it’s so well written. I wasn’t sure what I made of some characters in Everneath and I’m still not sure if I trust some characters, but I’m excited to see where this book goes next.
The ending has left me really, really wanting to read Evertrue sooner than I had anticipated. The author has completely thrown things up in the air and I need to know what’s going on. As soon as I can!
I’m so glad that I came to this series late, because luckily for me they are all released and ready for me to devour. I just need to fit it in now!
Would I recommend it?:
Without a doubt!
