18053128Goodreads Says:    Now that Nikki has rescued Jack, all she wants is to be with him and graduate high school. But Cole tricked Nikki into feeding off him, and she’s begun the process of turning into an Everliving herself... which means she must feed on a Forfeit soon — or die.

Terrified for her survival, Nikki and Jack begin a desperate attempt to reverse the process using any means possible. Even Cole, who they expected to fight them at every turn, has become an unlikely ally — but how long can it last? Nikki needs to feed on Cole to survive, Cole needs Nikki to gain the throne in the Everneath, Jack needs Nikki because she is everything to him — and together, they must travel back to the Underworld to undo Nikki’s fate and make her mortal once more. But Cole isn’t the only one with plans for Nikki: the Queen has not forgotten Nikki’s treachery, and she wants her destroyed for good. Will Nikki be forced to spend eternity in the Underworld, or does she have what it takes to bring down the Everneath once and for all?

In this stunning conclusion to the Everneath trilogy, Brodi Ashton evokes the resiliency of the human spirit and the indomitable power of true love.

My Thoughts:

-    This was probably my least favorite of the series. I was okay with ending, but it wasn't as awesome as I thought it would be.

-    I really didn't like the love triangle aspect of this book. I could handle it before, but it was aggravating in this one. I didn't like that Jack, Nikki, and Cole spent so much time together. It bugged me that Nikki would feed/kiss Cole and then turn around and make out with Jack.

-    There was too much kissing.

-    Jack kinda bugged me. I didn't know how to picture him in my head. Was he big and muscular like the hulk or was he just bigger? Jack was too protective of Nikki and a bit possessive. Nikki went through a lot. She is a tough girl. She can handle stuff.

-    Cole was my favorite character in the series, and I was disappointed with him. I missed my love/hate relationship with him. I know it is because of what happens to him, but it was a complete personality change, and I didn't like that. 

-    I felt like the book moved slowly. Everything happens in the last few chapters. I thought the ending was rushed a bit. I would have liked for action/fighting and struggling throughout the book. 

-    My favorite part of the book was Ashe. He was an intriguing character.

-    I was okay with what happens to Cole at the end of the book, but I think it wasn't congruent with his personality.

 Everbound (Everneath, #2)


  1. I need to post my review for this book this month too. :) I felt about the same that you did, especially about Cole. I thought his plot twist was too convenient. Everbound was my favorite in the series.

  2. I can totally see where you're coming from. And, while I missed the old Cole, I still was on the edge of my seat wondering if he was faking or not, so it didn't bother me too bad. I liked it. But, Everneath is my favorite of the series.
