Author: Brodi Ashton
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
oh my oh my (spoilers are bound to come out, it's book 2 after all)
Again I am left just wanting to read the next book and forget about the fact that I have other things to do.
I half smiled. Jack was gone. I didn't think I'd ever be okay again. "Ill be fine"
"But it's a race. Why did you wait for me?"He lifted his head so that his eyes met mine. "I always wait for you." He took a deep breath, my ankle still in his hands. "I'm always waiting for you"
"Tell me friend," Jack said, his fingertips grazing mine as people shuffled past us in the hallway. "Is there more for us?"I looked at my feet. "There's everything for us"
Nikki is doing everything she can to get Jack back even if it means enlisting Coles help, the one person who doesn't want Jack back in the scene.
This book takes us further into the Everneath then Everneath did (ha) as we journey through it to find Jack who has been sucked into the tunnels. Where we learn more about ancient myths that all seem to be based on some truth and more about Nikki and Coles pasts.
If I was an everliving I'd spend my time on the surface, because the Everneath doesn't sound fun at all, ancient buildings, dust, endless voids, rings of death, Shades, crazy water. Nope, the surface is much better.
We learn a little about Cole, where he came from, how he came to be an Everliving and also about his band member Max.
Since stories are what help keep you sane in the Everneath everyone gets to tell them, I found it much easier to differentiate between past and presents with the events of the story this time being life and death and memory.
Towards the end of this book I was waiting for it all to be another dream or a big trick but what really happened was just as big a surprise, hello I betrayed you mwhahaha.
