    Okay, to be honest, I¿ve always had a bit of an issue with this

    Okay, to be honest, I’ve always had a bit of an issue with this series, particularly with the lack of research and back story. But when it came to Everneath and Everbound, I tried hard to not weight my prejudices into my rating. After all, they both had great plots to distract from the inaccuracies.

    That wasn’t the case with Evertrue.

    I felt Nikki regressed a lot in this novel. She was more self-centered and blind as ever. Throughout most of the beginning of the book, it was all about her. Meanwhile, I was concerned about Jack and his sudden changes. It was obvious he was having issues controlling his emotions and his new found strength, but she never took the time to investigate how this occurred or why. In fact, the lack of interest was really disappointing.

    In addition, I found the way Nikki took advantage of Cole was really piss poor. This is a small spoiler alert, but Cole suffered from amnesia in this novel, and Nikki really turned that fact into her wind full, which honestly, I felt was downright low. Cole became my favorite character in Everbound, despite what he had done at the end, and yes, I always hoped he’d find redemption. But he shouldn’t have been brain washed into it! I wanted to see him grow from the man he was, not lose his memory and have Nikki plant falsehoods in his mind. Seriously, that was just unethical on Nikki’s behalf.

    And finally, I hated the ending, and just because of what happens to Cole. I don’t know why authors think the kind of ending this series has is the solution to the problem. It really isn’t, and in my opinion, it just makes the main character look bad. Sadder still, there was a clear second option that the author could have used, but obviously didn’t. And I’m betting it was because of Cole and the whole “love triangle issue”.

    There was only one part of the book I liked. It was when Cole took Nikki to the Everneath to practice her power. And if the whole book had been done is a similar fashion, I probably would’ve enjoyed it. But this novel really made the series feel pointless.

    **Just a final FYI: In real ancient Egyptian mythology, the akh were souls of people who lived pure by the standards of Ma ‘at, passed the hall of judgment, and were admitted into Osiris’s kingdom—the ancient version of heaven. Not people who feed on the energy of Forfeits so they may live forever.**

    Read it so you can feel closure for the series. But... I didn't

    Read it so you can feel closure for the series. But... I didn't feel that pull to keep reading like I did for the other two books. Ending disappointed me... Didn't end like I hoped it would.
