Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Publication date: 1/24/2012
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.
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.
Overview - From Amazon
I am looking forward to this one, because it has all of the bizarre otherworldly elements that I have been obsessing over in books since, well, Twilight really. Whatever, guys, I'm a Twihard. I'd like to think I've tossed in the towel on paranormal tales, but it seems to continue its dominance in young adult lit.
And Everneath, like most of my fave YA books, has an underlying LOVE TRIANGLE?
This is supremely important to me, because I love to pick teams.
While I am a little skeptical about the references to greek mythology, I've definitely got this on my To Read list.
