Recommended for: people who don't mind cheated endings


I originally gave this book four stars back when I read it late last year, maybe November or so. When I finished it, I literally threw my NOOK across the classroom I was in and screamed "Garbage." Inconveniently, I had finished a test early and I sat silently in the middle of the room. I'm pretty sure I made about five people scream in surprise . . . but that's a different story.

My reason for my incredible outrage was the cliffhanger ending. More specifically, (view spoiler). CLIFFHANGERS GALORE.

Well, I'm sure you can guess that at that time, I was pretty much effing done with cliffhangers, as prevalent as they are in YA fiction.

Now that I've had a little bit of time to cool off, I'm realizing that Everneath is actually deserving of a five-star rating. Everything was done well (except for, of course, the ending), and honestly, I'm super excited for the sequel, not matter how far away it may be.

I've come to realize that the ending wasn't as horrifyingly bad as I had once thought -- cliffhangers are something I'm going to have to get used to in this genre.
