Book Review: Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Jan 05, 2011

Brodi Ashton’s debut novel is teen paranormal at its best. Kidzworld has the book review of Everneath.

The Underworld

After being trapped in the underworld known as Everneath for a century (six months in real time), Nikki Beckett returns to her old life. But her time at home won’t last long. She has only six months before the Tunnels will steal her back and keep her for eternity.

Short on Time

Her boyfriend Jack was her reason for returning. Her love for him kept her strong and youthful during their century apart. She only has six months to reconnect with him, but something - or someone - is standing in their way.

The Everliving

Cole, the Everliving who brought her to the Everneath the first time, will stop at nothing to win her over. He wants her join him and rule the underworld instead of sacrificing herself to the Tunnels. But Nikki knows that to rule, she’d have to Feed off the emotions of humans, which she refuses to do. As the clock winds down, Jack and Nikki search for an exception to the rule - some way to save her from her inevitable fate in the underworld.

The Bottom Line

Everneath by Brodi Ashton hits all the most important points that make a teen paranormal book so great - a believable love story, a struggle for survival and an intense pace. Even if paranormal is not your style, you’ll still appreciate the fantastical world, the mythology references and the undying love between Jack and Nikki. Definitely check this book out.

Explanation: Hoshi was best friends with the moon girl, Sina who secretly loved him but they drifted apart when Hoshi met Dimitre, a Russian boy. He hung out with Dimitre more and they both fell in love with each other. However, Sina was jealous and so she got Cira, the sun girl, who was in love with Dimitre to distract him and hang out with him. Dimitre was too kind to reject her so he just hung out with her. In the shadows, Sina was bullying and threatening Hoshi not to meet with Dimitre because if he did she would hurt Dimitre. One day Hoshi couldn't handle it and so he ran to find Dimitre after school. He saw Dimitre and went towards him only to get hit by a car. Dimitre saw Hoshi lying on the floor and rushed towards him and hugged him while Hoshi slowly died in his arms. Dimitre never got over his death after that point.

There once was a boy named Hoshi. Just like his name his smile was as bright as the stars in the sky. One day he met another boy who's eyes were a mixture of the aqua ocean and green land, Earth. His name was Dimitre and he came from a far away land. They fell hard for each other. Their love stronger than anything in the galaxy. The star left the moon's side to join hands with the earth in their journey of love. But a girl carrying a name that meant the moon felt jealous. Jealous of the stars love for the Earth. She wanted to make it so that Hoshi could never meet Dimitre again, and with the help of another girl with her sun-kissed hair, the star could never see the Earth. The sun would blind the Earth so much that he couldn't see Hoshi who would shine brightly with teary eyes, and then when the sun would go to sleep so did the Earth, and only the stars would feel pain. Months went by and Hoshi's heart only broke harder and harder until a plan popped in his brain. The star, lost and all alone, cut off the wings that allowed him to shine and he fell out of the sky with hot fiery pain. Dimitre saw Hoshi in his hurt and painful state and embraced him. They could finally be together. Only for a brief moment, until Hoshi could feel himself slip into a deep sleep wrapped in Dimitre's arms. The star had gone out, and had left a gaping hole in the Earth's heart that could never be filled.

I appreciate it, but that doesn't help my conscience.  To me, you're practically saying "if one of us dies, that's okay because there are still plenty of other humans all around the world".  I don't put other animals above us, of course, but they still exist.  Anyway, good day.  Enjoy this egg's before  [s:p/1n9v] and after  [s:p/1n7e] because I'm not sure how to say "good day" without sounding sarcastic.
