Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Two months ago, the Tunnels of the underworld came for Nikki Beckett. That night, Nikki's boyfriend, Jack, made the ultimate sacrifice. All Nikki wants is to save Jack before it's too late. All Cole wants is to find his queen - and he thinks Nikki is the one. Both determined, both desperate, Nikki and Cole form a tense alliance, leading them on a dangerous journey to The Heart of The Everneath.

 

Everbound continues after the Everneath cliffhanger, where Jack is still in the tunnels after sacrificing himself to save Nikki from the same fate. Through connected dreams, Nikki can feel Jack starting to slip away and knows she needs to return to the Everneath to find him... Before It's too late.

Her father has her in therapy, and Jack's mother is livid and blames Nikki for her son's disappearance. After attempting Jack's rescue by herself, she needs to enlist the help of Cole. He reluctantly agrees, and along with Max, they navigate the Everneath 'rings', with only her tether to Jack to guide them. To maintain their connection, Nikki must remember memories of Jack and there are flashbacks to Nikki and Jack's relationship, in which Cole doesn't seem too fond of.

Everbound ends with a shocking twist that I didn't see coming, so fans will have to wait in agony for the final book. It's a good read, not great though. I blame the dreaded 'middle book syndrome'. What I did notice was how often the characters would remark, 'You should know this' or 'You know this', or 'Do you know this?', it felt as though they were talking in broken English at times and became annoying. All up, a good read and a significant ending that will leave you shell shocked.

    1. Hi Leigh.
      Yeah, I blame it on middle book syndrome. Most middle books I've read are fairly slow and concentrate more on the relationships between characters, they all have those BIG endings that tends to make you forget that the book wasn't all that good, but you'll still be desperate to read the finale.

      And thank you, I'm now stalking you over at http://mamasbookcorner.blogspot.com

  2. Have you read The Realm of Fiction's review on this? I wonder what you will think of the contrast in you reviews. Ugh. You know? You know? You know? It sounds like a broken record just with different ways of saying it. I've already ruined some of the book for me with the reviews I'm reading on Everbound. It does have potential.

    1. Ohhhh noooo STOP reading Everbound reviews, you'll spoil it.
      I don't know how I didn't pick up the 'you know this' in Everneath, maybe it wasn't as prominent. I started highlighting them in Everbound after a while, it's mainly what got me through the main stretch of the book.

  3. New follower here! I found you on goodreads, and I'm glad for that because I love what I've seen of this blog so far.

    I am DYING for this book! I have it coming in the mail, but my impatience just wants it now. I'm afraid of that middle-book-syndrome, but terrified of the cliffhanger and wait for the final book. These authors don't seem understand how fragile their readers are. :(

    Fantastic review! Short and sweet, but you really did a great job getting your opinion through.

    Feel free to follow me back at http://www.paper-fantasies.blogspot.com!

  4. Hi Kelly and thanks for commenting. I'm impatient too, hence why I buy all the Kindle versions of the new releases. Nothing beats a paperback though. It's a tricky one to review, too much could potentially giveaway the entire storyline. Great blog, already following.
