Nikki Beckett has returned to her life after vanishing for several months without explanation. Nikki had actually traveled to Everneath during the time that she was gone and a few short months in our world was actually a hundred years living in this realm where immortals feed on the emotions of despairing humans.
Now Nikki has six months to return and set her life straight before Everneath will claim her again. She has longed for nothing but reconnecting with her boyfriend Jack while she’s been gone but there is a problem with that happening. Cole, the immortal that kept her in Everneath has come back to the surface with her to try to get her to be his queen.
Everneath was a pretty slow moving read in my opinion. We have the constant back and forth of this sort of love triangle between Nikki, Cole and Jack going on which is the main focus of the story for the most part. I would have probably preferred a book based on this world known as Everneath instead of one taking place in our world.
One thing that made it a bit slow for me to get into too was there are a lot of time jumping around to explain what had happened before and then keeping with the current story. This could sometimes get a little confusing in the beginning.
What saved my rating a bit on this one was the ending actually did become quite engaging and perked up my attention after being a bit bored up to that point. It didn’t end up being too bad overall but I’m not sure if I would want to continue after feeling this one only picked up at the end.
