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.

Before I get started with the prologue I just want to  let you guys know this has not been completely edited yet. I'm going to be posting them in chapters/sections. Prologue The air was still crisp, though the explosion had happened weeks ago. But then again, nothing seemed like it was a few weeks ago. The explosion had come out of nowhere; nobody really knew what happened. Some say somebody left their stove on. Others say somebody made it happen on purpose. I don’t know what to believe, I don’t even know if anyone else is alive. All I know is that my parents died in the explosion. I don’t know if I have any sibling, aunts, uncles. I’m surprised I’m alive, my clothes are still singed from the fire. I haven’t found any supplies. I don’t even know which way I’m supposed to go. I doubt you would want to know my name, but in case you were wondering it’s Blake...Blake Hensworth.

As you said, you can block or report people and the situation will be dealt with. What sense??? It is not worse than real life bullying.

I think that both are horrible but bullies are in real life so they physically hurt people
