I think everyone of us could understand where Nikki stood, dealing with depression, lost of a love one or just finally hitting the bottom. They reason why Nikki left to go to the Everneath was a direct result of an event involving her boy friend, Jack coupled with a few other things.
Everyone knows the sign for “together” isn’t kissy fingers, it’s “okay” sign, plus pointer finger. He isn’t around just to make the “good guy” look extra nice with his boy next door, award winning smile.
We take abuse seriously in our discussion boards. All of the characters in this book are so wonderful. I found myself out of the story most of the time, picking apart its inconsistencies, instead of pulled into Nikki’s story.

Damaged, yet loving and courageous he battles to keep Becks from being dragged back into the Everneath. It might quite possibly be the most interesting retelling of the myth I’ve read in YA, and considering the number of retellings floating around out there, that’s really saying something.
The end of the book is where the story finally hit an AHAH! Question is will Jack be her Orpheus and save her from dragging back to Everneath?
Okay, so a few years back I critiqued some first pages at a writers’ conference. Jack is my least favrouite character, I think in this book he dragged Nikki down. It does, however, suffer from what other reviewers have already christened the “Disappearing Parent Syndrome”, a definition I’d take a step further and rename the “Missing Adults Syndrome”. Cole is a very complex character. Cole is slime and I wanted him to just go away. Sure, she has feelings because we are told about them over and over and she is brave and selfless and would rather suffer herself than do harm to another person.
Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. She, Nikki, does become more tolerable tho, when she is not thinking about Jack, or hurling objects like a toddler: When I saw that Everneath was a retelling of this heartbreaking tale, I was instantly attracted to it.

Thank you to Harper Collins and Netgalley for allowing me to read this! Ohh wait there is twist of third guy. This is more of an Orpheus and Eurydice retelling, with a random “love triangle” thrown in.
Cue more of my eyeballz. Everneath 4 Book Series really liked it 4.
To add to the trepidation, the story shifts from past to present in a way that leaves you feeling restless. Brodi Ashton could have gone so much farther with the thoroughly interesting bodi presented to us in the synopsis, but unfortunately, the most mythology in the entirety of Everneath is in the opening chapters, and the final few chapters.
I’m excited to read your books: But be warned, this is a trilogy and Ashton leaves her novel on a heartbreaking cliff-hanger of sorts. Loved the anchor idea!

Jack is the excellent counter-balance in this novel. There’s a certain realness to the characters. Cover to Cover Ch I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did.
But Nikki doesn’t just let him win: Nikki, our MC, is annoying, uninteresting and has no frickin’ backbone. Yet, in everyone else’s perspective, they think she’s only been gone a matter of months. He was almost succeeded but one small mistake of looking back took Eurydice back to underworld, this time forever. For anyone who has been burned by paranormal YA far too often, this book is for you.
This review was originally posted on Thoughts on Tomes Will it be a face, a smile, a happy moment?. But before I tell you what I loved so much about this book, let me take us 2 years back. Whilst reading this I happened to glance over at my mirror and see the expression on my face – my mouth was open, my eyes were wide I begged for the easy way out.
The beginning was so compelling I just wanted to keep on reading to figure out what was going on. Other than that tho, he somehow makes my heart go all achy-breaky
