Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity — a debt that should’ve been hers. She’s living a borrowed life, and she doesn’t know what to do with the guilt. And every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away.

Actual rating: 4.5 stars

There are exactly two types of books that I tend to gravitate towards: Dystopians and Greek myths. Both feature characters in impossible, bleak situations. Those stories are dark, deadly and often times, down right tragic, not always ending with your standardized 'happily ever after.' Hmm... I'm not exactly sure what that says about me as a person, but I digress. I think the real allure is rooting for the underdogs even when it seems like they're up against the inevitable

Warning: contains spoilers for the end of Everneath

I've spent most of the last hour browsing the internet and trying to find a gif that fully portrays the shock and outrage I felt at the ending of Everbound. Unfortunately, there appears to be nothing of that extremity currently on tumblr or photobucket. Before the last chapter, I was liking this book well enough - particularly the more action-packed scenes in the Everneath - and I was breezing along thinking "yeah yeah, this is good, that was g

I speculated a lot when it came to Everbound. What will Nikki do? How will she do it? Will Jack survive? Will Cole remain a romantic interest after all he did?! Will he help Nikki get Jack back? Let's just say Everneath was one of my top 2012 reads. So Everbound definitely delivered, just not quite as much as Everneath? It was good, believe me, I just liked Everneath a bit better because of well, Jack quite frankly. You get some Jack here but just in memories. He is still as cute as a button in ...more

Tragedy in wasteland of unfathomable pain, hopeless love is a divine whine. I found this book is just as tortuously magical. A beautiful second instalment that kept the consistency of the series. It was tragic and hopeful in same line, with a grand tour to Everneath and fighting off zombie like creatures with brains. I like books of any genre but when it comes to Geek mythology, its

I’m going to try to do this without spoiling the last book or this one, kay my friends?

Nikki needs Cole’s help in the Everneath. She has to make it through three mazes, avoid zombie-like wanderers, the Queen of the Everneath and the Shades or she and Jack are going to die.

And can I just say: GOD THIS BOOK! WHY?! WHY!??!!?! Ashton, do you feed on our tears? Do you use th

This. Book. Gave. Me. Everything.

Right off the bat, when I saw a map of the Everneath at the beginning of the book, I was freaking out. After the emotional, character-based first book, I had always hoped that its sequel would take us deep into the Everneath, with lots more action. And in the end that was what this book did.

I love Brodi Ashton for that, because she made the perfect balance. The first book focused mostly on the

So it's currently 12:30 am, I am just starting this "review," and I go back to school in less than a week.
Great:)

Okay, this was a step up from Everneath, so cootoes to you, Brodi;)
It's still cliche as fuck, but either my brain has been changed after reading this crap for so long, or this actually is a better book than the last.

I admire Nikki's devotion to Jack, I really do. There's just one ity bity, okay not really ity bity, more like kinda biggy, problem.

I do not normally condone temper tantrums for anyone over the age of 0, but this book deserves a nice, giant, WHAT-WERE-YOU-THINKING-TO-END-IT-THAT-WAY temper tantrum. I'm talking throwing the book (without damaging it) or using it as a club to bash things with (again, no damaging). (Btw, I did these things.)
Brodi Ashton has merged fairy tales with classic mythology and her own modern twist. Plus a SHOOT-ME-IN-THE-FACE cliff hanger. And a twist that will have you groveling in the dirt.

With Everbound, I get the exact same feeling as I had with its predecessor, Everneath. I like Brodi Ashton’s unique spin on Greek mythology, particularly the myth of Hades and Persephone, but for me, it’s just missing something. I guess beyond the premise I just don’t see how the execution of this series stands out from every other paranormal romance featuring a girl, two guys, and a supernatural plot involving the three I’ve ever read, so while the paranormal hook is fairly interesting, the res ...more

Everbound begins a couple of weeks after the events of Everneath. After her boyfriend Jack sacrifices himself and is sent into the tunnels of the everneath, Nikki makes it her mission to rescue Jack from what should have been her fate. To do this, Nikki must go to the everneath, and she needs the help of Cole, the everling who instigated this whole mess. Surprisingly, Cole is willing to help Nikki, and both of them set off on a dangerous journey to reunite Nikki with her los

First thing, I want to appreciate the map on the very beginning of the book.
It is such a beautiful map, I didn't even realize it was a map at the first glance. I tought what I saw were some symbols (from the ring).

This was good second book in the series. We got to see Everneath and the writer did a decent job in the world building.

As for characters, I really liked Nikki's development. She is full of anger that makes her stronger. I really liked that about her. Her anger makes her a fighter, keep

So, I inhale read this in two days and now I'm just sitting here wondering what is going on. The twist at the end was so sudden and shit! so good. In this book, Cole and Nikki have to travel to the Everneath to go try and save Jack. I really liked the visuals we got with the Everneath and how multiple myths (like Greek and Egyptian) combine to make this fictional place. Even after everything... I'm still Team Cole. He and Nikki have wayyyy more chemistry than Nikki and Jack will ever have. I'm d ...more

ABSOLUTE DNF
I really liked the 1st book, Everneath, but this.... I'm not sure WHAT's wrong with it, maybe- EVERYTHING? I could hardly bring myself to read until page 50, then the book was due and so I had an EXCUSE to DNF. Anyway, RTC because I'm sure you're looking forward to my rant about how awful this is... NOT. :)

Actual Rating: 4.5

Rarely can I say that a sequel surpasses its predecessor, but Brodi Ashton managed it with Everbound. Many of the complaints lodged at Everneath were absent here. Although Everbound had a bit of a slow start (the real adventure doesn't begin until a third of the way through), it was filled with action and fast-paced adventure. Nikki is also more driven and less mopy than she was in the first book. Although she has doubts about her ability to save Jack, she maintains hope to the

No. Just, no. I did not like this book. Period. I think its because I pretty much despised Nikki, but I just wasn't feeling it for this book.

Once again Brodi Ashton has written a book that incorporates an interesting tale of mythology that has me so emotionally invested and leaves me feeling helpless heartbroken. Ashton just has this way of surprising me in the end - even when I'm expecting it.

First of all, I'm not a fan of whiny main characters who wallows in self-pity. But Nikki didn't feel like one to me. I can't really explain why, but perhaps it's because Ashton had created such a sorrowful book with the first one or because of

Another awesome series! I read Everneath on a whim. It was a debut novel, I wasn’t sure what to expect but it sounded like something that I would enjoy. And I am SO GLAD that I did! And while I loved Everneath, Everbound was a-freaking-mazing! It’s my favorite of the two.

Ashton does an excellent job in book one, setting up this world and these characters. And she does an even more wonderful expanding on that in book two. We are exposed to the Everneath in a way I never thought possible, it was c

Brodi Ashton is officially on my favourite authors list. This book made my day. I love you Brodi! <3

His words didn't quite reach my brain. "You'll go where?" He rolled his eyes and then spoke slowly. "I'll go with you."
"You'll go with me?" I said, incredulous.
"Yes. But not because I have any feelings for you or I'm attached to you in any way. I'm just attached to my hair. Quite literally."

I'm really not sure if I am going to read this book. I wish the characters are more stronger and complex instead of flat and boring.

Edit: 7/17/13--You know what? I'm thinking about reading this book after all. I did feel that the first installment had a bit of potential, and I want to see more potential developing further in here. The reviews from what I've read are pretty good and striking. Time for a fresh, new change from my maybe-read list. :)

Holy fudgenickels!

I don't know how to review this, goshdarnit. I wasn't expecting to like it this much, Everneath was sort of a ho-hum read for me. I couldn't sympathize with the heroine, Jack (the hero) felt cardboard-y and the mythology was a bit difficult to latch on and keep my interest. My sole interest was with Cole because his moral ambiguity held such promise.

Everbound picks up two months after the events of Everneath. Nikki is trying to find a way to rescue Jack from the Tunnels

I liked this second book in the series sooooo much more than the first!! This second book in the Everneath series is exactly what I was hoping it would be, after a lot of dragging scenes in the first book, I was hoping for more of a fast paced story and that's what I got!

In the beginning Nikki is still dealing with the loss of Jack and the accusing stares she gets from pretty much everyone in town because she was the last person to see Jack and she can't tell anyone where he is or wha
