Everneath - Brodi Ashton, Amy Rubinate

This book slowly seeped into my mind, my thoughts.

 

Synopsis:

 

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she’s returned—to her old life, her family, her boyfriend—before she’s banished back to the underworld . . . this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance—and the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole’s queen.

Everneath is a captivating story of love, loss, and immortality from debut author Brodi Ashton.
 
 
My Thoughts:
 
When I first started listening to this I was unsure how I felt about it, it was a little juvenile for me and yet the more I listened the more it pulled me in and I was able to overlook that.  It is beautifully, yet hauntingly written.  Even the narration is soothing in a way. 
 
I listened on Audio, with narration done by Amy Rubinate.  While, she could have been louder, her voice did have a very captivating quality to it.
 
The mythology behind this story is interesting, and made me realize I really don't know that much about Greek mythology.  I believe that before I delve into the second book, I need to get some back story on Persephone, Orpheus , and Eurydice.
