Book: (Everneath, #1)
I was hesitant about this book since my friend told me it was so bad she didn't even finish it. Once I got reading, though, I was sucked into the life of Nikki Becket and her messed up life. I love this book!
Nikki is a girl who had the perfect life, the perfect family (except for the fact that her mom's dead), and the perfect boyfriend (AKA Jack). It was wonderful until she met a musician who seemed to take her pain away (AKA Cole). When she catches a cheerleader coming out of Jack's room she immediately begs for Cole to take the pain away. She had no clue what she was in for!
She has been missing 6 months on the surface but in Eveneath it takes 99 years before she comes back. One problem. She might look bad but she didn't age during the feed. See Cole is an Everling and feeds off human emotions and takes the fact that she didn't age has to mean something big.
Nikki chooses to come back for Jack since he was the only face she was able to remember during the feed. It's got to mean something right?
As she and Jack rekindle their love Cole does everything to talk her into becoming his queen down in Everneath. One itsy bitsy problem. She is going to be taken back to Everneath in 6 months whether she wants to or not. Once there she will be stuck in a black hole where Everlings and their land will feed off of her emotions. (oooh spooky! XD)
So with time running out they look for a way to stop it from happening. In desperation Jack takes Nikki's place when they come for her. Now Cole is all she has left of that world and all she wants to do is kill him for doing this.
I cried at the end and hated Cole but I can tell Cole is not just obsessed with her. I think he's in love with her...still root for Jack though!
It's a MUST read for anyone that loves a good tragic love story! Here's the thing...there are three books! So I'm happy! Hope you enjoy the book like I did!
Look for my post about Everbound!
