Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she’s returned—to her old life, her family, her boyfriend—before she’s 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 precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance—and the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is 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 queen.

Everneath is a captivating story of love, loss, and immortality from debut author Brodi Ashton.

This wasn’t my favorite book, but I think it will appeal to a lot of you, so I’m sharing the link for you to read up on it. It’s a cool premise, a mix of underworld stuff, Greek mythology and demony things. I’m a quite worn out on this genre, so despite some fresh twists and an interesting love story, I had a hard time connecting. But check it out above if it’s your thing!

    Sorry to hear this wasn't for you. I love Greek mythology so I'm curious about it, I'll try it but keep in mind your thoughts. It's refreshing after hearing so much praise about it! 🙂

    I'm in the midst of reading this one now. And while I like it enough the MC is just not very likeable. It also doesn't help that I don't really like the whole Persephone myth and all things tattoos and piercings. I'm hoping it picks up but I feel a little disheartened with it at the moment.

    I’m reading it now and I quite like it! It definitely does feel a tiny bit vaguely familiar but it’s unique enough so that I’m enjoying it. And Jack = awesome.
