He took my hand and pressed it against his chest. “Do you feel that?” he said. I blinked and nodded. “This heart is yours. It belongs to you. It beats only for you. And somewhere out there is a heart without a home, and it beats for me; and we’re not giving up until we find it.”

There are some times when the final installment in a series disappoints you and it's a pretty devastating experience after you've devoted so much time and emotional turmoil to the characters and story. Then there are thos

Biggest freaking book disappointment EVER. I'm so pissed I'm incoherent.

1. Nikki is the stupidest MC I have ever had the displeasure of coming across. And the most selfish. (view spoiler)

Update (06/12/13): In the German synopsis it says "Nikki realizes that she only has one chance to destroy the Everliving: She has to become Cole's Persephone."


At the end of Everbound, I was all:

Then I checked to see when the next book was coming out.

And it said:

Horror! Disbelief! Sadness! *cry cry cry*

Well, damnit. All I can say is that I love Cole despite EVERYTHING and I don't want him to die in this one. Please

Sometimes a book pisses you off because of that one certain event you can’t seem to wrap your head around. Other times, it’s the characters that make the book a complete drag for you. But unfortunately, Evertrue has both of these factors going on for it simultaneously, with varying degrees of suck.

To be honest, I’ve never been much of a fan of this series. Admittedly, the second book had me super intrigued because o
This review may hint towards what happens in Everbound, so keep that in mind. However, it is spoiler-free for Evertrue.

Evertrue doesn't feel like the end; while final installments in trilogies tend to be the darkest of the three, I found Evertrue's tone to be far different than the two novels preceding it. Obviously, the stakes in Evertrue are high, arguably at the series' highest, and lives are at risk. So yes, the underlying plot of Evertrue is dark, harrowing, and emotional, but it's how the

The girls dress on this cover reminds me of one thing and one thing only.


Beautiful hell dress or jam stirred in cream?

Who knows.

Summer the bummer
Out of the entire series, Evertrue is probably the cheesiest of them all. I shit you not. As if the series couldn't get any more idiotic.

If I read this novel about, oh, a year and a half ago, I would've loved it. I read the first before I became a blogger, and I’m pretty sure I gave that one four stars. I read the second, and abhorred it. Less embarrassment for me.

At about 10% in, I encountered this sentence…
”I let out a breath I didn't realize I was holding.”

OMG. That is the best cover I have ever seen in my entire life. *freaks out*


EVERTRUE? Oh man, I wasn't expecting that. EVERFREE is so much better!

I kid, I kid. Maybe.

I hope she calls it EVERFREE... coz you know, they'll be "forever free."

Okay, I know... I came up with a pretty lame name. But whatever. All I can think of was Everfree or Evermore.. and Evermore's been used at least a thousand times.

UPDATE 7 December 2012: I've thought of more! EVERMINE

When the early reviews of Evertrue started to roll in, I was rather appalledto see so many disappointed reviews. But now, I can totally see why. Everneath and Everbound were some of my favourite novels ever--but I cannot say the same for the last instalment, Evertrue. Here were my main issues in order from most infuriating to least:

1.Jack. A sad fact, but true. I was Team Jack ALLL the way till about 50 pages into this book. What changed? This happened:

Update: March 2014
Now that I've stopped crying all I can say about this final installment is "no". Just no. The end to this series is completely unacceptable and I'm going to pretend that things happened differently.
1.5 stars

I don’t really hate this book. I NOTHING this book. Hate suggests emotional reaction that can stem from the heart or mind and neither my heart nor mind was in it. I can imagine majority of the readers enjoying it, but it simply did not work for me in ANY way.


For the most part, I was on board with Nikki. She owned up to her mistakes, looked for solutions in ANY way possible, didn’t sulk and brood in the corners looking for self-pity and the love for Jack felt real and honest.

The Mockingjay Effect strikes again!

"What is the Mockingjay Effect?" you ask. Well, it's a theory I came up with after the release of Mockingjay, in which the first two books in a trilogy are awesome, amazing, wonderful... and then the third book blows. Usually this only applies to YA dystopia, but I think that this book applies.

Where do I begin? Well, after Nikki rescues her love Jack from the Tunnels of the Everneath, she finds she is transitioning into an Everling. Wh

My review of Everneath | My review of Everbound

Oh, Evertrue. I was so looking forward to you. Everbound was one of my favorite sequels ever, and it ended on such a bang. I always have such high expectations for series enders, and sadly this one fell short.

I still have a lot of love for this series, and there are some excellent things going on in

Again, Goodreads? Seriously?


Don't make me think about this when the second book isn't out yet! 1.5 isn't out yet either!

I'm not saying me thinking about this is a bad thing, it's just that it'll make me want me want the book to come out EVEN FASTER!


And I get bombarded by all these feelings!

Edit 06/23/2013:
So I just realized that if Evertrue continues following Persephone's story, it might mean that Nikki will eventually learn to love Cole.



Edit 06/13/2013:

Honestly? I don't know what to feel about this cover. It IS amazing (especially when you look at it from afar and realize its overall impact is actually great, especially the swirl at the bottom) but I think it would have lo

Solid ending. Great series overall.
This book wasn't as good as it's predecessor but it was still enjoyable.
Most of the time characters spent in Everneath, providing it's plan to destroy it.
I have to admit, in this novel I rooted against them.
I didn't want for Everneath to be destroyed.

While reading I was thinking about rating it 3,5 stars, but then came an ending.
And what kind of ending was that? Let me tell you. An epic one!

I think this series has one of the best series conclusions I've read.

Official January 2014 Review
Okay, so the story starts off shortly after the ending of Everbound. Total recall of the story: Nikki had went to the Everneath in hopes in freeing Jack, only becoming an Everliving herself because she fed from Cole three times. Cole intends for Nikki to be Queen, but regardless, she only has hopes of destroying the Everneath.

The book has an emotionally crippling ending. It was quite obvious what was to happen, but the way the author describes it...well, I was in

Christina (A Reader of Fictions)
Series endings are seriously tricky to get right. Tying up a world and the lives of characters if not entirely but satisfyingly is incredibly difficult. This explains why so few series endings are the strongest books in the series. Tragically, Evertrue is a case where the series ending kinda went splat. The more I thought about the book, the more issues I had with it, even though initially I was waffling on whether I liked it or not.

to be honest this was my least favorite book of the trilogy ... I don't know why ... maybe because it wasn't as depressing and sad as the previous ones but overall it was ok and.a good conclusion to the series

So after a long time of wondering if I should write a review of this, I decided that I would. It's always interesting for me to write a review of a book that made me want to gauge my eyes out with a pair of scissors. So lets begin shall we?

Let's start with the characters. If you can even call them that. In books, it's actually rare nowadays to see NO character development. You get a little snippet of Nikki's possible character development in bo

“Give me your heart,” I said.
He tilted his head, leaned forward, watching my eyes the entire time to make sure it was okay, and kissed me lightly on the lips. "You already have it.”
“I want my heart. I'll trade you for it. I'll give you anything. Almost anything". He tilted his head forward in a challenging way.
"Give me you"
"Anything else". Cole raised an eyebrow.
"You think I care about anything else?"
I looked down at the floor.
"Where's my heart" I said.
"You're always asking the wrong question.”
