ARC Review: EVERBOUND
By Brodi Ashton
In stores Jan. 22 2013
An Everneath book (book 2)
Playlist.com is very different than it used to be:( if someone has something else they use and like let me know:) for now click below
What it's about (from goodreads):
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.
What I thought:
Brodi Ashton is beyond brilliant! This is an extremely hard book to review because the last 3 pages change the entire feel of the rest of the book. I'm not sure how to go about not giving spoilers! We got to see a lot more of Cole in this book which I'm sure will excite a few of you out there. And if you're a Cole fan the Novella NEVERFALL is out today!! NEVERFALL takes place at the end of EVERNEATH and the beginning of EVERBOUND and is told entirely from Cole's point of view. I read the first chapter and I'm loving how Cole defines the time. For me getting to know Cole better has been bittersweet. I'm a die hard Jack fan for sure and my feelings are so mixed for Cole after finishing EVERBOUND. I'll just say the end of EVERBOUND shocked me! I'm not very far into NEVERFALL I don't know if the end of EVERBOUND will still be shocking after reading NEVERFALL but I was so shocked I just sat and stared at the book for 20 minutes after I had finished. I think maybe I was trying to use Jedi mind tricks to get book 3 to appear.
I'm not so great at doing reviews since baby boy was born and I'm really sorry. I honestly don't know what to say about EVERBOUND either. I don't want to ruin it. so I'm mostly just talking:) but seriously seriously I've never been more serious read this book!!! I'm beyond in love. I'm thinking about taking up residence in Brodi's brain. Although I'd miss my baby too much and if I took him it'd probably be too loud and distracting for her, which we don't want.
The release party:
Brodi is sharing her release party with Cynthia Hand Author of the Unearthly series on January 22nd at Kings English. It should be a ton of fun! I took the day off and I'll be there with my girls! so say hi if you see me. I'm usually pretty quiet but I do love meeting all of you!
I give this book:
