MARISSA'S RATING


GOODREADS DESCRIPTION:
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
.

MARISSA'S REVIEW:
Continuing from the fantastic first book EVERNEATH, Brodi Ashton guides us through the Everneath on a quest to find and save Jack.  With Nikki, Cole, Max & Ashe we are on an amazing fantasy adventure through the maze of the Everneath. 

Nikki shows some personal growth through this journey - learning to control her amazing emotion and passion for Jack whilst bonding with Cole on a level different from their time in the Feed. Could Cole be the direction that her heart veers her?

Cole remains an ever constant distraction and pain for Nikki - yet at the same time a friend whom she begins to trust (within reason!) now more than she ever has.  Throughout EVERBOUND, Cole gives us glimpses of his emotional side that I must say.....makes me more Team Cole than anyone else!!  I just love me some bad boy with a softish heart!!

With Jack being held in the Everneath, Nikki must make her way down there - but to do so, she needs the help of Cole to make it happen. Along with Cole comes Max and they enlist the help of Ashe who lives in the Everneath.  Ashe has a past that Nikki stumbles upon ...... could it have dire consequences for her mission?

True to all great stories, there are twists and turns and an ending to make you go WHAAAAATTTT THE?!!!

The Everneath Series by Brodi Ashton is a must.
Check out my review of the first in the series...Everneath.

ENJOY!
