Why I Picked This Up: The cover looks amazing and the synopsis sounded good…
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..
Weird, and not as amazing as I hoped it would be. I really should start reading what these stories are about instead of what people recommend. Mythology, immortals, romance just with a modern twist. Can’t really go wrong.The characters were likable enough, I enjoyed the finding of love again between Nikki and Jack, at first I was all about Cole but as I got to know Jack better I am on his team! However, when I found out the reason behind why everything happened, I was disappointed that Nikki was the over-emotional, already-assumed, over-analytical, typical teenage girl, I was kinda disappointed.
I loved the modern twist of the underworld and Cole as the main “bad guy” but overall I just wasn’t THAT impressed, I’ve read A LOT of mythology books and this just failed to impress me but if you’re looking for a quick fun read this is an easy go.
I didn’t have a hard time getting through this book it was a fun read.
I will give the 2nd book a go and see if it gets better for me! You know me a sucker for mythology so I’m not giving up completely on this series! Plus I’m looking forward to more from this author so yeah!
