Book Summary:
Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she's returned--to her old life, her family, her boyfriend--before she's 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 precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance--and the one person she loves more than anything. But there's just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is 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 queen.

"Everneath" is a captivating story of love, loss, and immortality from debut author Brodi Ashton

Shannon's Thoughts:

Everneath is on the surface another take off the Persephone myth.  But it is much more than that too, drawing in other myths and mythological figures.  It makes for a book with a lot of depth and feeling.  Aston does an amazing job portraying her character’s feelings, especially the really complicated ones.  And believe me, there are a lot of Complicated Feelings flying around.  Everneath is atmospheric and melancholy.  The feeling of longing drips off the pages.  But (and this is very important for me) it never gets angsty.  I thought the relationships were extremely well done and realistic and I really felt for NikkiPoor girl. 

Also, can we talk about the cover for a minute.  I try not to comment on covers too much, but hey, I’m human and these things affect me.  A good cover adds to the overall effect a book has and this cover takes my breath away.   Where can I buy me a smoke dress?

I can’t wait to read Everbound, which will be published in January.  I think things are about to get even more complicated for Nikki...and I love it!
  Bring on the Complicated Feelings!
