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.

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 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.
Beware, there IS the chiche Young Adult love triangle.

Book one on the Everneath Trilogy, where Nikki has just returned from the Everneath, spending the last hundred years being a forfeit to the alluring Cole, who feeds off emotions. Life became too much for Nikki, and she would have given anything to have the pain eased, and she literally did.

Now back on the surface, she has been giving six months before she is pulled under again, her fate is sealed... Or is it?

Meet Jack, Nikki's long time love. Jack has searched for Nikki since she disappeared, heartbroken and lost. When Nikki returns, she can hear the whispers and rumors, determined to keep to herself. Jack is on a mission to find out where Nikki has been, and rediscover the girl who still has his heart... If Cole will allow it.

A stunning modern telling of the Hades and Persephone myth. Well written. Jack is a brilliantly beautiful character. My only complaint is that it wasn't nearly long enough and ended in a cliffhanger.
