Synopsis:(from Goodreads) 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…
Oh my gosh, guys! Oh my goodness, gracious, gosh!!! This has got to be my favorite book I have read so far in 2012! I can’t even explain how much I love this book, but I will sure try!
Beautifully written and heart-wrenching, I found myself reading until I lost track of time on several occasions. The story of Nikki and the Everneath is unlike any other book I have read in a long time, and it was so refreshing! Unlike many YA novels that start with a normal person and build the fictional world around the main character’s discovery of the paranormal, Everneath launches you right into the turmoil and just constantly grows from that through the entire book.
I loved every part of this book, but I really loved the storyline of how Nikki was lead to the Everneath. I liked how it was woven throughout the story, and in addition to that, it was very believable. I can understand how everything that was going on with her would have made her desire an escape. It added to the deep emotional tug I felt through this book. I also must mention how realistic everything about this book felt, the emotions of the characters was so real to me. Responses of her return, the way her friends and family reacted. Let me not forget how easy it was to believe in the love that Jack and Nikki had for one another. Jack Caputo has earned his rightful place on my list of YA boys I adore.
To be honest, forming words about this book is hard. There is so much I would love to share and talk about through this review, but I wouldn’t dare want to spoil it, so all I can leave you with is, PLEASE, purchase this book, read it. You will not regret it.
