I’m honestly not really sure with where to begin this review… I had measured expectations about Everneath. I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews, and while I really wanted to just fall in love with it (because look at that seriously beautiful cover!), I held a little back, just in case I found I didn’t fall head over heels.

I shouldn’t have been so worried.

Everneath was fantastic. I take that back. It was fan-freaking-tastic! I honestly don’t even want to call this a Hades/Persephone story, I just want to let it be its own amazing story. Really, Everneath is everything Abandon by Meg Cabot should have been… It was dark, heart-wrenching, and romantic. I think Everneath had the best first chapter that I’ve read in a really, really long time. So creepy and “what is going on here?!” I love it!

One thing that threw me just a bit was the character of Cole. Don’t get me wrong, he was great. But he reminded me a little too much of a different Cole I know quite well. My own Cole from my Fall of Angels trilogy… I won’t go into too much detail but… stalker, bad guy, obsessed with the MC, way too good looking, determined to take someone into the “Everneath/afterlife”… anyway.

I seriously can’t wait to read the next book and it almost makes me wish I hadn’t gotten an ARC of this because now I have to wait all the longer! So go out and buy this NOW! I won’t be surprised if Everneath ends up in my favorite reads of 2012.

5 out of 5 stars!

Everneath leads you on with a great start but doesn't follow through. The author did not fully explain the everneath and the underworld. She started several ideas to bring the story together but did not finish them. Such as the greek mythology which was quickly dismissed in the story and only made slight sense. The bracelet idea was not even finished in the book. I was left dissapointed because of the great reviews. Their was also barley any closeure to the story and some aspects of the book were so completly unrealistic. Such as when she returned from being gone for months and the polics weren't invovled. Do not buy it, bye.

    Not worth the price

    I am so upset that I wasted my money, on this book. The main female character Becks is boring and dull, plus the other two leads Cole and Jake are stereotypical roles you can find in every YA book...ugh!
