Waiting on Everneath by Brodi Ashton

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to shine a spotlight on upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Publication date: 1/24/2012
Pages: 384


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.

  6. Don't doubt too much about the greek mythology thing. The Hunger Games is very much based on the stories of Perseus, and most of these immortal-underworld books remind me a lot of the myth of Orpheus and Euridice.

  8. I just read a review of this book that made it sound really good! The mythology aspect gives me pause, but the Everneath does sound interesting as does the love story.
    Hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to read it!

  11. LOL @ Twihard. I've actually never heard that before. It's almost as much fun as Belieber (for those who worship Bieber)! I too am a fan of love triangles. That's why I watch Vampire Diaries. Will add this to my to-read pile :)

    PS. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  28. Everneath has a gorgeous cover. I don't know which one to read. Meg Cabot's Abandon or this, since they are based on the same myth. Maybe both since I been hearing this is a lot sadder than Abandon and therefore different.

    My WOW
