Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she’s returned—to her old life, her family, her boyfriend—before she’s banished back to the underworld.
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. Evdrneath longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance—and the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world.
And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.
Drawing inspiration from such myths as Osiris, Orpheus, and Persephone, it explores the nature of loss qshton longing and what it means to be alive.

But before I tell you what I loved so much about this book, let me take us 2 years back.
In essence, this book has been on my top to read list for the last 2 years, maybe even more. However, one azhton followed another and I just refused to start this book.
I was returning back home from Bucharest and I wanted something to read. I had tons of other books to read. Bitter Harvest, but as always something overcame me and I just started reading it. Brrodi story might be your another Hades and Persephone story, however, this time everything is a bit more difficult. But I eveneath fell in love with the guy and I really want him to get Nikki.
They are awesome together and she makes him a better person! Enjoy it to your fullest. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book as it seemed like people either liked or disliked it. Let’s just say I was definitely pleasantly surprised. I rate this book 4. Everneath by Brodi Ashton is a play on the mythological story of Persephone and Hades as well as Orpheus and Eurydice.
We evwrneath introduced to the protagonist Nikki, who is already currently in the Underworld with Cole, a sinister yet intriguing antagonist. There is one thing that keeps her sane during the years that she is bound, and it is thoughts of her first love, Jack. Only 6 months pass in the upper world, and she returns to Earth for 6 months before her ultimate fate of feeding the energy of the Underworld until she is used up.
Jack and Nikki frantically try to find a “cure” and discover secrets along the way. I’ll put this right out there. I absolutely loved this book. Perhaps brodii of it is that I love Greek mythology to start with, but that said, I thought this book was well done.
The characters were very well developed and I really got Nikki’s relationships with both Eevrneath and Jack. I understood her progression from despair to hope and the symbolism to drug use with what Cole represented. The prose was very clear and many times poignant, and I blazed through the entire book in a few hours, never losing interest.
I was in tears at one point. For me, that’s not a usual response. I enjoyed how the book was told in both present day and past day, and thought that this method of storytelling worked very well for the story that was to be told. So why did I rate this 4. There were a few things that I saw that for me would propel it even to a higher level.
I wish that I had even more details of Nikki’s past with Jack. Jack seems like such an interesting character, but in the beginning he’s painted as the player guy who sleeps with everyone, which is such a dichotomy from the guy he is with Nikki.
There’s a reason he does that and I want to know what it is. Second, I’m not sure if this is left for the second book, but there is a huge misunderstanding between Jack and Nikki which leads to her going to the Underworld in the first place. I guess we can chalk up her emotional state to being a teenager, but I wasn’t quite convinced.
And lastly, I felt that the ending could have been done a little better– in fact, if it had ended two chapters before, it would have been a better ending I believe. That said, it’s obvious that I loved this book even with its flaws, and I highly recommend it to any lover of YA fiction. Ensconced in YA blog: If you watch Once Upon a Time, it does a similar thing with time whereas there are alternating chapters of ‘Now’ and chapters going back in time to explain how she ended up where she is.
I quite liked this setup, but it made for getting information on the Everlings and Everneath a little bit at a time. This is a story that references Hades and Persephone and actually has the characters researching these and more ancient Greeks for more information to their plight. I have read a lot about Hades and Persephone, as it’s a myth that I enjoy. This was definitely a part of the story that grabbed me and had me wanting to know more. Our main character Nikki has made some very poor choices in life to get her in these dire circumstances.
Part of what made me like the story so much was that it made me FEEL. Even though she is trying to hide from her fate now and is still not making the best choices, she is doing better and that has to count for something. I felt for all the characters in the story though, even the anti-hero Cole. He’s not really a villain so to speak as he has no ‘evil’ intentions, but he is definitely not a good guy either. No one is having an easy time of it in Everneath. The Bad There’s definitely some more information that I’m looking for here.
I don’t understand why only six months pass above while the Feed takes a century in Everneath. I also would really like to understand why they send ‘food’ down to the Queen all the time yet the Everlings go down to recharge for a century of feeding. As you can see, while we get some information about this world and its intricacies, we’re left without quite a lot of the why’s and how’s. So to incredibly enjoy this read, you just have to go with it.
The Romance Like I said, some may see a love triangle here, but I just don’t. Cole is interested in Nikki. She is a possibility for him to get out of his current standing and enjoy some better living.
Everneath Series by Brodi Ashton
Yes, he’s a musician, and smoking hot, and the one with powers, but Nikki’s heart is clearly with Jack. The ex that hurt her and that she hurt as well by leaving for six months with no explanation. There’s a lot of hurt here, but the romance is important evernesth the story as Nikki thinks consistently about Jack and their relationship.
Conclusion An enjoyable read for sure. There are elements to the world that I quite liked while there are also some elements that I would like explained better in future books. The characters are all in pain for the moment but I can see them growing already and I see the potential for a lot of growth over the series.
It was definitely interesting and I read it exceptionally quickly.
And if they did, I wouldn’t be one of them.
