Which brings me to introduce the newest addition in this never ending race to establish justice. Jix is a skinjacker who prefers large cats to people. His Mayan roots help instill his reputation as a messenger who's "Blessed by the Gods". He's calm, collected, intelligent, and crafty which makes for a stimulating combination as he learns how to climb his way to the top in this crazy race. No sign of idiot thugs so far. Now about Mary, I have honestly never read a book where I was so put off and revolted with the "bad guy", or in this case, "bad girl" as I am with Mary. My Lord, she is the anti-Christ of the afterlights. She deceives and uses people, and her biggest issue is that she actually believes that she's doing the right thing for her kids. I also love reading the clips from her "guides" at the beginnings of the chapters. Just getting a look into her hypocritical mind is hysterical.
Everfound takes us on a westward journey through the U.S.; following Mary's locomotive to an unknown destination where her plan to destroy the living world can be fulfilled. Allie the Outcast starts out tied to the front of said locomotive until she says adieu to the freaks and begins the task of stopping Mary. All in the midst of this, Mikey, along with what's left of Nick, is making his way towards Allie so as to be reunited with the love of his life. The author juggles all these developments (and a few others) with ease, and even manages to add a new romance with some unexpected effects. One other point I may bring up is the humor. I found myself laughing at the absurdity of some of the situations the characters found themselves in. It lightens the story, bringing it away from the epic, battle-between-good-and-evil feel that this series has. The ending (though it may have been a little rushed) was bittersweet and fulfilling, and while it was hard to say goodbye to some of the characters, I left satisfied.
The first 2/3 of the book is focused on Milos and his "reaping" expeditions with the furjackers the furjackers Jix and Jackin' Jill, Allie and her skinjacking, combined with attempts to thwart Milos, and Mikey and Nick and the scar wraith, Clarence. The three groups mostly remain seperate at first, going about their own paths, a bit like 3 seperate but related storylines, untill around the last 1/3, when the two "sides" clearly emerge, and everything in the series starts building to a grade finale.
And what a finale! I dont want to give away important plot points, so I'll just say that the trilogy ends with the perfect ending. It's not sudden or out of place or disappointing, it's simply the perfect ending. I'm not saying that only the ending was great though, because the whole book was fantastic. Everything from the start to the end fits likes a puzzel, with more and more revealed until the ending. Every plot point in the book adds to the story instead of detracting from it.
The point is, if you havent read this book yet, buy it and read it! If you haven't read the whole trilogy, be sure to get all 3 of the books, starting with Everlost, and then Everwild, and finally, Everfound, because trust me, the whole series is FANTASTIC. It's imaginative, intriguing, and i love the characters. Everlost is defintely one of the best fantasy worlds out there.
