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.

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

Fellow readers. Answer me this. What did I ever do to you? Why did you not warn me about this book and how it would take my heart and mash it into itty bitty bits? Is it because misery loves company? Did you feel the need to drag me down with you? Because, hey it worked. I am now broken. So congratulations, you broke me.
Okay, so real thoughts now. I was super excited to start this book. I had put it off because I had some other books I needed to read, but this one was always there calling me. So when I finally got around to it, I was so ready and excited and a ball of emotion. So imagine my surprise when I get to the 50% mark and I'm just not feeling it. I was crushed and honestly shocked. I didn't get it. Then I realized it is not the books fault. I just wasn't in the mood for it and I wasn't feeling whiny Nikki at the moment. So I took a step back from the book. I put it down for a while until I was in the mood for some fantasy. Then a little more than a week later I picked the book up again... and proceeded to fall in love. This time I fell right into the story and was captivated and ready for the ride.
Nikki is a tough one for me. See I usually like my heroines less whiny. But she is also realistic. It was hard for her to deal without Jack and it showed. She fell apart at times and she should fall apart. However, she is also determined. She wants to save Jack and will do whatever necessary. Speaking of Jack, I like him, but I wish I knew him better. Sometimes I just feel as if all I know is that Nikki loves him and thinks the world of him. I want to really know him and I hope I get to.
Then we have Cole. Guys, I love Cole and I want to smack him right now! That boy shredded my heart! Why did he do that to my heart? Doesn't he know its breakable? The sad thing, I can completely see the reasoning behind his crazy ass backwards actions and that is the problem. He is so broken and I just want to fix him. I can't help it, he remains my favorite character. Everyone knows I have been Team Cole from the beginning and thought Nikki crazy for not taking him up on his offer, but I have resigned myself to the fact that it is never going to happen. Jack and Nikki are one of those stupid unbreakable loves.
Everbound was a great ride and a book that broke my heart. I was sobbing upon finishing this book and dying to get my hands on the next one. Again people, why didn't you warn me? Now I have to wait forever for the next book. *sobs*
The ending...OMG the ending! Gah! I so want to like Cole, but WOW! did he royally change that at the end. I see his justification, I really do, but if you really love someone LET. THEM. GO. Back the f off, dude. Really.
There were a lot of justifications that I could see. I love the argument of choice, and how Cole and Nikki argued about it. I could see Cole's POV, but wanted to side with Nikki. However, it was a choice, even though not everything about the consequences was relieved. See? Can't stop arguing in my head about it!
Excited to see where this story goes, and already pre-ordered the next!
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.
