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.

Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen — and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to assist her in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.

Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated — and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack — even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

In this enthralling sequel to Everneath, Brodi Ashton tests the bonds of destiny and explores the lengths we’ll go to for the ones we love.{Goodreads}

~Review:
  Do you know how long it took me to read this book? Two months. TWO WHOLE MONTHS! It wasn’t because of the lack of interest. It was more because of the fact all these other review books I had were pushing themselves to the priority pile and pleasure reading was out of the picture for a bit. I will admit that it was—If I am being honest—because of the lack of interest. Everbound started out really slow. Not to mention that Nikki isn’t one of my top protagonists. Sorry. To me she is just really whiney and annoying. I gave her leniency in the first book because she kind of just jumped into a whole new world and was drained…literally. I then tried giving her leniency in this one because she just went through some pretty tragic stuff and was completely heart-broken but…after a while I lost my patience.

  Now don’t get me wrong. I love this series. I love the plot and the writing. Brody Ashton is very talented. I just dislike Nilkki. Enough about Nikki. Bring on the boys!! ;D Now I can’t say much if you guys haven’t read Everneath. I don’t like my reviews to contain spoilers. I want you to be able to look at a review of a sequel to a series and it inspire you to read the first and get started on the series yourself. This one though is going to be hard because the whole book is revolved around the ending of the first. I shall try though.

  Without saying too much. I have done the unthinkable. One of the worst book sins. I have changed boy teams. Yes, folks you have heard me right! I have gone from #TeamJack to #TeamCole. Don’t think it is possible? Read the novella, Neverfall. Its good. Although based one some feelings and vibes going out throughout both books, I don’t see why she did it. I am hoping Ashton created that book for the reason I hope. But yes I have fallen for Cole. Kinda. I am not completely one hundred percent sure. Sometimes Cole pisses the hell out of me and I hate him and want nothing to do with him. I don’t blame Nikki for not wanting to be with him sometimes. Then others I think that there is no way it could be Jack. That it is Cole and only Cole. Actually, no. As I am writing this review, feelings are coming and my mind is once again changing.  I think right now I am #TeamWill. Either Jack or Cole is going to really step it up in the final book. They are going to have to do some real kick-ass convincing to win my heart this round.

  The ending on this one was. Wow. I completely had no clue that one was coming. I literally had my socks blown off…with my shoes still on. That. That was intense. A moment that made me #TeamWill. I have no idea what is going to happen in book 3. I am excited to see where this goes. If you haven’t started this series yet I suggest you do. Its something so unique. I have yet to read something that comes close to this series. There are lots of books involving mythology but none quite like this!
