Now that Nikki has rescued Jack, all she wants is to be with him and graduate high school. But Cole tricked Nikki into feeding off him, and she’s begun the process of turning into an Everliving herself... which means she must feed on a Forfeit soon — or die.
Terrified for her survival, Nikki and Jack begin a desperate attempt to reverse the process using any means possible. Even Cole, who they expected to fight them at every turn, has become an unlikely ally — but how long can it last? Nikki needs to feed on Cole to survive, Cole needs Nikki to gain the throne in the Everneath, Jack needs Nikki because she is everything to him — and together, they must travel back to the Underworld to undo Nikki’s fate and make her mortal once more. But Cole isn’t the only one with plans for Nikki: the Queen has not forgotten Nikki’s treachery, and she wants her destroyed for good. Will Nikki be forced to spend eternity in the Underworld, or does she have what it takes to bring down the Everneath once and for all?
In this stunning conclusion to the Everneath trilogy, Brodi Ashton evokes the resiliency of the human spirit and the indomitable power of true love.
My Review: Why did this series end?! Seriously!!!!! The book was way too amazing to be the last one! I really want something to come after this. Even if its a short story, I need more Nikki and her world.
Nikki just can't catch a break right now. I mean she got Jack back and everything is all peachy with them. However Nikki still has to worry about Cole. She needs to find him and destroy his heart, along with getting hers back. Whats going to really suck, is that if she doesnt feed or feed off Cole she will get weak and die.
Want to really make things hard? Nikki and Jack will destroy the Everneath. Uh, that will be a challenge and not to mention what it will mean to the other people living there. At least they have Cole. Sounds crazy right? Well you see, Cole lost his memory after being tortured, but I'll let you figure out why that happened. So with Cole as a blank slate, Nikki plants a story for Cole and eventually he remembers everything near the end. If you like Cole, you may hate him in this book. If you don't like him, well you may wish he never showed back up, but either way they need Cole. So you may just yell at the book like I did.
So the Everneath situation. Nikki wants to destroy it and just have a normal life. To do this she will need help and must to it within a time frame. Nikki and Jack will make a plan to destroy it withing one week. First the shade network, then the hearts and it should all go down. What Nikki didnt plan on was the queen. Now Cole has wanted her to be queen but Nikki didnt want that. So they should be able to destroy the Everneath without having to kill her. Well what does end up happening is surprising. What happens after you manage to destroy everything and the only hearts left is Nikki's and Cole's. Those last moments will grip your heart tight. Think about it, Cole is hundreds of years old, what could really happen if his heart was broken?
With the Everneath taken care of, Nikki can finally have the normal life she has always wanted. Nikki and Jack together forever and a lovely life ahead of them. I can't believe how it ended and really wish that there is at least one more book in the series. I loved every page of these books and hope Brodi comes up with another addicting and beautiful world.
