I rarely review books. Mostly because I tend to use a lot of dumb lingo like “I LOVED it!” “Awesome!” “This book is great!”
But this is one of those rare occasions, so I'll try to keep the exclamation marks to a minimum. I just finished Everneath by Brodi Ashton. It definitely deserves a shout-out.
After 100 years, 17-year-old Nikki Beckett has just returned from the Everneath, an underworld where immortals feed on human prey. But in human time, only 6 months have passed. And she only has 6 months on the surface before being sucked back under again. It’s what happens in those 6 months that keeps you turning the page.
Everneath was inspired by the myth of Persephone and Hades, and the story unfolds in the form of a countdown clock, adding to the suspense and sense of urgency.
Teeny bits of it were a little over the top, but it was well crafted, had engaging characters and no point will you have it “figured out.” It is simply a compelling read.
√ Highly recommend
