Goodreads Summary

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she’s returned—to her old life, her family, her friends—before being 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 months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she’s 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...

 What an amazing book!! I was captivated from the very start and once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. Brodi Ashton has done a beautiful job writing this book. She has introduced us to some amazing and strong characters, whose lives appear to be tied to each other.

 It is told from Nikki’s POV when she returns to her life after being gone for six months on earth. While we watch her try to put her life back together, the story skips back in time to before she disappeared and she retells us the stories that lead her to make the decision to leave. Her life was perfect, her grades were good, and she had her best friend Jules and her boyfriend Jack. Things seemed to change after she meets Cole, who isn’t what he appears to be. She starts to doubt some things and she wants to leave her life behind. But, could her true love keep her anchored to her world?

 Through the development of the storyline, we delve into Persephone’s Myth and the Everlivings. The Everlivings live off the emotions of humans, and once every century they must take a human with them back to the Everneath and feed off them for 100 years, consuming all of their emotions until they can no longer remember their past life.

 This book was just so beautifully written, that while I was reading it, I kept getting a little pull in my chest too!! The emotion from all the characters in this book is so high and it was so easy to connect with all the characters. It was great to go back to the past and see the whole story, and what lead Nikki to make the decisions that she did.

But can True Love really save them?

 I can’t wait for book 2, Everbound, due out January 2013!!
