EVERWILD continues the story of Allie and Nick, but their stories diverge as they pursue separate goals; Allie sets off with Mikey to find her parents in hopes that she might put her spirit to rest, while Nick finds himself against Mary Hightower in a race to find and use the lost children of, well, Everlost, for their own plans. Along the way, we are introduced to several new and unique characters that make the book that much more awesome.
Honestly, I don't think I could possibly give EVERWILD a summary worthy of its content. The summary above is only the beginning of a long and thrilling adventure. Shusterman wowed me beyond belief with his unending talent and beautiful writing, and it's clear that he pays meticulous attention to every aspect of the story. EVERWILD is a very layered book and each subplot is as interesting as the next. There are no dull moments, and I was very pulled into the story and experienced suspense and excitement and nervousness and thrills right alongside the characters. Shusterman manages to pack adventure, action, suspense, and comedy into one superb novel.
In EVERWILD, Shusterman delves deeper into the personalities of the main characters, whom are mainly Allie, Nick, and Mary. Allie and Nick are clearly protagonists, and very interesting ones at that, but I loved how Shusterman had a character like Mary, whom you couldn't be sure was truly evil or not and seemed insane yet sane, twisted yet not...Read more ›
Where Everlost left off, Everwild picks up and the transition is smooth. Mary Hightower, the sky witch, is on a mission to collect as many afterlights as possible , to make an army against the Chocolate Ogre, formally known as Nick. She doesnt like him giving her kids their coins so that they pass into the light, into heaven. She wants all the childrens souls for herself and she will stop at nothing to make sure that happens. Nick, who is now on a train with Johnnie-O and Choo-Choo Charlie the train conductor, has a bucket of coins and it has no bottom to it. He wants all the afterlights to be able to move on, when they want too and not be trapped under Mary. Problem is, he still loves her, problem is she still loves him. Nick must hunt down a legend in Everlost, an afterlight called "Zach the Ripper" who rumor has it, can rip your heart right out of your body. Meanwhile Allie (the outcast) is on her own mission, with Mikey McGill ,THE McGill. She wants to go home and see her parents, something afterlights NEVER try. But Allie can Skinjack, and when she meets up with other skinjackers? She gets even stronger in her skills, but Mikey is now the outcast, and he is growing his old skin back....the monster is still under the surface.
A war is brewing and many afterlights will find out just how strong they are, what new skills they can manifest and how strong the ties of love really are.Read more ›
This book was a fantastic read that was very difficult to put down. Shusterman's writing styles and concepts remind me very much of Garth Nix and the Sabriel trilogy, which are some of my favorite books of all time. The characters are very believable and real, but most importantly is the fluidity of the language - it is absolutely beautiful to read. The author definitely has a gift with words. Someone else could take the same story but use a different writing style, and it would not keep me nearly as captivated as Shusterman's. He really is a master storyteller.
If you have enjoyed any of Neal Shusterman's other works, you will definitely enjoy Everwild. Also recommended for fans of Garth Nix and fans of a bit darker fantasy.
