Everbound (Everneath, #2)Two months ago, the Tunnels of the underworld came for Nikki Beckett. That night, Nikki's boyfriend, Jack, made the ultimate sacrifice. All Nikki wants is to save Jack before it's too late. All Cole wants is to find his queen - and he thinks Nikki is the one. Both determined, both desperate, Nikki and Cole form a tense alliance, leading them on a dangerous journey to The Heart of The Everneath.

**Will contain spoilers for those who have not read Everneath**

Everbound is the heart-pounding sequel to Everneath. There is more action, more mysteries and a whole lot more exploring! Venturing into the world of The Everneath is not going to be easy, and Nikki knows that, but she will do anything to find her boyfriend, Jack, who was taken away a few months ago by the Tunnels of the underworld. Now he is trapped and Nikki is his only hope at breaking free. But of course The Everneath is too dangerous for just one human to go down alone, she has to ask for help from Cole. And if he refuses, she will make the journey alone.

I was left on the edge of my seat for most of the book. Danger was always following behind, and there were secrets to look forward to hiding behind every corner. The book was pretty unpredictable and I never knew what was coming next for Nikki and Cole. 

One of the things I loved about the book was the setting. Finally, we get to explore The Everneath! The land of the Everliving! It was just too cool. To get to the High Court of the Everneath, you have to pass the Ring of Earth, Ring of Water, Ring of Wind and the Ring of Fire. And in each of these rings holds an impossible task that Nikki and Cole have to get through. The detailed description of each ring was perfect and I felt like I was actually there. 

Another thing that I loved was Nikki and Cole's relationship. Before you go into panic, I'm talking about their relationship as friends. Even though Cole did some pretty unforgivable things, Nikki manages to get pass that. On their way to find Jack, Cole and Nikki share their pasts. Yes, Cole is finally opening up. Not only does hearing about Cole's past touch me, but it also touches Nikki, and the two learn to trust each other.

I can't point out anything I found annoying in Everbound apart from the ending. I know, it's always the ending that has to spoil everything. There's a whole year of agony before me before the final book comes out. And an ending like the one in Everbound promises that the next book will not disappoint.

If you love myth-retellings then make sure you check out this trilogy because it will not let you down. Brodi Ashton has written the perfect sequel to go along with the incredible Everneath, and I can only imagine what the next book will be like.

  2. Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any ideas? Kudos!

  3. Great review! I love this series! I love how we finally got to see what the everneath really looks like how things on on down there! scary!

  4. I totally agree with your review. I loved this book and thought it even stronger than Everneath. I also loved the setting and getting to learn more about it. And admit it, Cole is hot even though we are all rooting for Jack :-)

  5. I can't wait to read this book! I'm excited to learn more about Cole. Thanks for the review

  6. I read Everneath awhile ago. I liked it, but I didn't love it, so I haven't gotten around to reading Everbound yet. BUT, I might now since part of my not-in-love-with-book-1 had to do with me thinking it felt a bit slow and since you said this has more cation and mystery, I'll maybe like it more.

  7. I love the cover and your review as well. Now I must read this books as fast as I can.
