    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    The world that Ms. Edwards built for this series is complex and interesting. There’s overthrowing of the queen, civil unrest and raiders. There are bad guys who can control your mind and sexy males to protect your honor. I’m looking forward to exploring more of Askara.




    I have to say that I had a hard time getting into this book at the beginning. If you haven’t read the first book, or in my case it’s been a while since you read it, it’s hard to understand what’s going on. There should have been more back story to introduce the reader to the characters especially Emma and Harper.




    I found it interesting how the author moved from the first person prospective of Emma to the third person prospective of Harper. It flowed well and I never got confused as to who was talking or thinking.




    I enjoyed Emma. She’s a straight forward woman who doesn’t pull punches. She didn’t let her feelings for Harper undermine her need for him to be honest with her about his past. Speaking of Harpers past, I wish the author would have delved more into what happened to him. I didn’t feel as sympathetic to him as I could have if his story had been more fleshed out.




    The sexual tension between Emma and Harper was hot and the scene in the bathroom is one I will not soon forget….HOT. I really liked the ending of the story. It tied everything up with a happy ending just the way I like them.




    On a side note: I hope Ms. Edwards is planning to write a story about Dillon because he intrigues me.

    Who doesn’t love a tortured hero? I know a lot of us here

    Who doesn’t love a tortured hero? I know a lot of us here at GT do, myself included. While the overall feeling from the book is what you expect from Hailey Edwards, but the experience itself is a little darker than her others, and it’s because Harper and Emma have both been through so much and are forced to face and really deal with it. In Everlong, Maddie and Clayton were sweet and cute together, whereas Emma and Harper only have moments like that but simply have a rougher edge. The bottom line is that they’ve always been the rocks for their families, had to make the difficult decisions, and had to endure a lifetime of even harder consequences due to those choices.

    The writing style is a little different than I remember from her other works, mostly just from the POV aspect. We only ever see from Emma or Harper’s points of view, but it’s written in first person when in Emma’s head and third person when in Harper’s. This isn’t a bad thing, just a little weird as I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. I think it’s neat though as it definitely set the characters apart.

    Possibly the coolest thing about Evermine is that it takes us back to Askara. There’s a new queen, and this allows Emma and Harper to return to their home world in new capacities as the way of life has undergone a revolution. It’ll take time, but both are anxious to play their parts to make it happen. This allows us readers to see more of the realm that our characters were raised in, including the magical elements which play a large part in their escapades through various places within Askara this time around, reminding us that Hailey excels in delivering an exciting fantasy with surprisingly relatable characters (at least emotionally, as I doubt any of you are princesses and I hope none of you have been slaves!).
