Taken from the back of the dust jacket:

Now she’s returned-to her old life, her family, her boyfriend-for another six months before she leaves again. 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.
Taken from the inside flap:
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 to find redemption, if it exists.
Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance-and the one person she loves more than anything. 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 ad 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 fat 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.
Everneath is a bitter-sweet retelling of the Persephone myth. A book that will leave you wanting more. However, the set-up for the split is beautiful, and while you still want to know what is going to happen in an odd way you are somewhat satisfied at how this installment ends.
Nikki struggles with her self, to figure out who she really is and what is important to her. Her family. School. Jack. What are the things that are meaningful. Something that is brought up throughout the story.
I found it easy to dive into Nikki’s world and be consumed by the novel. The book is only 370 pages making this a fairly quick read.
Without giving too much more away for those of you who have watched my video. I would say I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
