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.

Don't really remember what I dreamt yesterday but what I dreamt on Saturday (since I wrote int in my diary and blamed my maths teacher for it). So, Out of all things, I dreamt that one of my friends were making me do Profit and Loss sums. And the sum and I was doing it. There was a sentence written in pink ink in the paper that said '49 favours' I don't really know why. Just at the moment when I wrote 'The present cost of Baby Lips is 7x' my mom woke me up. I couldn't be more grateful.
