When I first started, I thought this would be another Hades and Persephone story. Which I wouldn't have minded. But I was also glad to find out it wasn't exactly the story I thought it was. I was intrigued with the story and came to find one of my favorite myth stories start to play out in this story.
I was drawn to Nikki. To her story that got her to where she is at the end of this story. Learning about the Everneath was great, I loved what Brodi Ashton put into the Everneath to make it exciting and a little scary. What I liked about this was being with Nikki as she relearned how to be on the surface again after being stripped of her emotions. She's a rarity. She somehow survived the Everneath. If you can call it surviving when she's an empty shell. But in steps Jack.
I love, love, love, love (okay, you get the picture) Jack. This guy is pretty amazing. He reaches out to Nikki when she is sure he wants nothing to do with her. But all the time she's been gone, he has never given up on her. And even better, he's willing to do anything to help and save her. There are very few characters out there that are truly selfless. Jack is one of those characters and it makes him all the more attractive to me.
This is one of the new series out there I'm already crazy for. I can't wait to get my hands on the next book, to find out how things turn out. This ends with one heck of a cliffhanger and it already has me itching for a copy of the next book. Everneath is an imaginative new world, worth getting lost in.
