Book Description

In Brodi Ashton's breathtaking sequel to Everneath—about which New York Times bestselling author Ally Condie said, "Ashton's lovely storytelling and strong-on-her-own-terms main character set this one apart. Wonderful!"—Nikki must travel through the underworld to be reunited with the love of her life.

Ever since Nikki Beckett watched as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the dark Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity, she's been living a borrowed life. Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen—and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to help in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself. Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they'd anticipated—and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack—even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

Inspired by the Persephone myth, the captivating first book in this series, Everneath, earned a VOYA Perfect Ten of 2011 and a Whitney Award!



Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-The second entry in the trilogy, a modern interpretation of the Persephone myth, picks up two months after the heartbreaking ending of Everneath (HarperCollins, 2012). Nikki Beckett is determined to save her true love, who selflessly gave himself to the life-sucking Tunnels of the Everneath in her place. Unfortunately, rescuing Jack requires the assistance of Cole, the Everliving being who originally lured Nikki into the Everneath, fed on her emotional pain, and now wants to use her to usurp its queen. As wary allies, Nikki and Cole agree to face the perils of the labyrinthine landscape guarding the entrance to the Tunnels where Jack is slowly wasting away. While the complexities of this frightening realm are richly explored and the murky intentions of Cole create tension, it's the memories of first love blossoming between Nikki and Jack that act as a compass in the dangerous underworld that give the novel its emotional core. The breakneck plotting never falters and perfectly sets up the cliff-hanger ending and final twist. Expect readers to be panting for the final installment.-Caroline Tesauro, Radford Public Library, VAα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

From Booklist

Two months after the events of the Everneath, Nikki Beckett is desperate to save her boyfriend, Jack, who took her place in the Tunnels. Her only way in is with Cole, the Everliving who fed off of her during her 100 years in the Everneath. Nikki doesn’t trust Cole, but she needs his help. The story builds on the groundwork laid by Ashton in the first book of this trilogy (Everneath, 2012), based on the Persephone myth. The majority of the book is set in the Everneath, which resembles an Elemental version of Dante’s circles of hell. The power of stories—a person’s personal mythology—is a recurring theme, as Nikki recalls memories of Jack to tether her and guide her to him. We even hear a few tales from Cole’s own long history. Despite Nikki’s devotion, Jack is the disadvantaged side of the love triangle because he is just a story throughout, whereas Cole is an active antihero readers can journey alongside. A devastating cliff-hanger sets the stage for this Persephone’s final story. Grades 9-12, --Kara Dean

4.0 out of 5 stars Live To Read February 15, 2013
By Chels
Format:Hardcover
Nikki desperately needs to get her best friend and soulmate, Jack, back from the Everneath where he functions as a "battery" to supply the Everlivings with energy. Jack gave up his chance at a normal life for her, but Nikki can't enjoy her freedom until she is reunited with him. In her attempts to retrieve Jack, she must talk to Cole, the Everliving who sparked this entire problem. Cole isn't exactly happy to see her and doesn't want to help her get Jack back. He doesn't factor in Nikki's determination and "Everliving" love for Jack, however, and the pair soon find themselves on an adventure to access the "tunnels" of the Everneath.

Nikki returns with a spark in the sequel to Everneath. Vivacious and brave, she will stop at nothing to get Jack back. Sometimes, she acts without thinking and the reader will want to shake her. Cole remains arrogant and confident. He still holds out hope that Nikki will become an Everliving like him and forget about Jack. Jack, an important portion of the plot, is only accessible through Nikki's dreams for much of the book. The author makes up for the sad lack of Jack by writing in memories of Jack and Nikki to accompany the dreams. More likely than not, the reader will be torn between Jack and Cole. Although Nikki loved Jack for years and he was her high school sweetheart, Cole has a certain feel to him that makes him impossible to forget. The love triangle that causes so many readers to put down books is not a turn-off in Everbound. The author places a heavy emphasis on Jack's plight, rather than the decision Nikki will eventually have to make.

The plot is fast-paced and fun to read about. Nikki guides the reader through the unusual world of the Everneath.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice follow up! January 30, 2013
Format:Hardcover
If you have NOT read Everneath please read with caution. There are some spoilers that were unavoidable. Proceed with caution . . .

I'm sure I'm in the minority here but oh how I love Cole. After finishing Everbound, I'm sure I'm not supposed to like him as much as I do but I can't help it. He's bad, oh yes he's definitely bad but he does everything for a reason to benefit him. Some call it selfish, hell I usually do but for some reason, it's sexy when he does it. Make sense? Absolutely not but it is what it is.

For you Jack fans, do not worry. I know Everneath ended with him bein taken to the tunnels in Nikki's place so you're probably wondering how fans of him will be satisfied, well Brodi definitely thought of that. Throughout the book we get to see different memories of Nikki and Jack. It was extremely enjoyable and so thrilling to see how they were when they were friends but dealing with their feelings for each other. Their first kiss. Her mothers funeral. Basically anything and everything. It gives the reader as much hope as Nikki that Jack will be found in time.

We also get plenty of Max, too whom I love as Cole's best friend. We don't really learn too much more about him but his company is definitely wanted (at least by me).

This book is full of action, especially in the second half. Once they enter the Everneath it's non-stop action and it makes this book so exciting. (More exciting, I should say) You see that as much as Nikki wants to hate Cole, she just can't. She can't fight the fact that there's a connection between them whether she wants to or not. Whether the time she spent with him in the feed is the cause or the fact that there might have been something there before the feed even took place, we'll never really know.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Even Better Sequel January 29, 2014
By Erica
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Brodi Ashton’s debut, Everneath, but that one does not come near the brilliance of its sequel Everbound. It is thrilling, exciting, and completely unpredictable. Everbound is everything I was hoping for in a sequel to Everneath and more. Stunning, completely stunning.

Every card was played just right. Everbound builds with each chapter until the ultimate high at the end of the book. Everbound really explains a lot of about the Everneath and more of the rules of Cole’s world. I find that world so fascinating. I love how Brodi Ashton has take a completely classic myth and morphed it into something completely new and awesome.

Cole is one of the best villains out there. Brodi Ashton plays him just right – I know he’s the villain, yet I cannot help to completely love the guy. This was my feeling in Everneath and in Everbound, I fell even harder for him. I love that in Everbound readers really get to see a different side of Cole and really learn more about him and a little of his past.

The books end, I cannot even. Holy bananas! Things get real intense and real emotional. I was staring at my book in complete shock unsure of what had just happened and had to reread it again to double check. It was pure brilliance. And it has me SO excited for the third and final book in the trilogy. I love the path Brodi Ashton has set and cannot wait to see how it turns out. While I didn’t see the ending coming, as soon as it happened, everything fell into place for me and it made my love for Everbound that much great. It just made so much sense.

Everyone should check out Everbound regardless of your feelings about Everneath. It was just so great! The only complaint I can come up with is the fact that I have to wait a whole year for the epic conclusion to Nikki, Jack, and Cole’s story.
