Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity — a debt that should’ve been hers. She’s living a borrowed life, and she doesn’t know what to do with the guilt. And every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away.

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 his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to assist her in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.

Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated — and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack — even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

In this enthralling sequel to Everneath, Brodi Ashton tests the bonds of destiny and explores the lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love.

About the Author:

Because
of two parents who were Greek myth geeks, I grew up thinking the latest
fashion trends were inspired by Aphrodite, and a good conversational
opener was, “So, which mythological character do you most resemble?”
Despite these social shortcomings, I found a great husband who’s always
my first reader. We live in Utah with our two young boys, who still
have no idea why I’m at the computer all the time.

I
received a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Utah
and a Master’s degree in International Relations from the London School
of Economics.

My Thoughts:

It’s not often that I enjoy the second book in a series as much as the
first. Everbound is a beautiful continuation of the story of Nikki, Jack, and Cole. This book has a different feel to it than the first one.
It isn’t as sad, and it has more suspense, more romance, and more language.

I was not surprised by the “big betrayal”. It was consistent with the
characters personalities and I had suspected something like it would
happen. However, I was surprised by the result of the betrayal. I did
not see that coming and it has me very curious to see how the final book
will play out.
