Everfound picks up right where Everwild picks up. Mary Hightower has managed to come back to Everlost, but is stuck in the usual hibernation period (called being an Interlight) before awakening as a full-fledged Afterlight. As her minions wait for her to awaken, Allie and others head west. Meanwhile, Jackin' Jill's path crosses with Jix, a strange Afterlight who has the ability to furjack -or take over the bodies of animals. Jix takes orders from a Mayan king who enjoys collecting the coins of Everlost. As the many characters and plot lines converge, the wild twistiness and epic awesome of Everfound explodes.
Completely and absolutely satisfying, Everfound delivers an epic thrill-ride from start to finish. From the very first word until the last, I couldn't put this book down. I kept flipping pages, desperately wanting to know what would happen next. It was amazing to see the intricate and unexpected twists and turns, even when it got close to end. Even now, Shusterman revealed things about his characters that readers would never expect.
Everfound is an excellent conclusion to a great series.Read more ›
I have to say that I quite enjoyed Everlost and Everwild, but I was completely blown away by Everfound. This conclusion to Shusterman's spectacular Skinjacker trilogy was its longest and most memorable installment by far. There is so much danger and drama already in the world of Everlost, as detailed in the first two books of the trilogy, but Shusterman introduces many new and exciting complications. There are whole hosts of new Afterlights to be reckoned with, new vortexes and objects with formidable powers, and new ties between Everlost and the real world. The sheer amount of imagination evident in Shusterman's writing simply astounds me; I doubt many other writers could incorporate bodily possession of animals, physically living within two worlds, and a prophetic jukebox into a story as skillfully and realistically as Shusterman does in Everfound. What's even more impressive is how he does this while maintaining completely believable if eccentric characters and situations. This trilogy was such a pleasure to read that I am truly sad that it is coming to a close.Read more ›
Everfound takes up where Everwild left off, with Mary Hightower ("The Eastern Witch") hibernating as an "interlight" after her second death. Her cohorts--including skinjackers Milos and Jackin' Jill--await her reawakening while journeying west. On the way they "reap" the souls of children (cause their deaths and then grab their souls before they can go into the light). In their clutches is Mary's enemy Allie ("The Outcast"), who has sworn to stop her maniacal plans. Pursuing them to rescue Allie is Mikey McGill (once the monster known as "The McGill") and Nick ("The Chocolate Ogre"). Mikey and Nick are captured by a "scar wraith" named Clarence, someone who has body parts that have crossed over into Everlost and can see the ghostly children while most of him remains in the living world. One big complication: the touch of a scar wraith can make their souls cease to exist. Also new to the story is Jix, a "furjacker" who can inhabit the bodies of animals. He is on an assignment from the Mayan king he serves to bring Mary to a place called the City of Souls.
Whew, that's just the beginning and not even the half of it! This story really ramps up the stakes, not just for Everlost, but for the entire living world. Yes, Mary is THAT much of an evil (though in her mind, well-intentioned) genius.
Not only does Mr. Shusterman have a remarkably inventive mind when it comes to plot, he creates the most incredible characters.Read more ›
