Read an Excerpt


CHAPTER 1
Jix

The boy jacked a jaguar, slipping into its sleek body and sending its simple feline mind to sleep. He owned the beast now. Its flesh was his. Muscular magic in a compact four-legged frame, perfectly designed for running, stalking, and killing.

He had taken on the name “Jix”—one of the many Mayan words for “jaguar”—due to his inclination toward great cats, and he furjacked one every chance he got. He preferred wild jaguars, living in the jungles of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula—creatures that hadn’t lost their will to hunt.

Reconnaissance was Jix’s specialty: tracking and spying on Afterlights who His Excellency the King believed to be a threat. Afterlights such as the Eastern Witch—the one they called Mary Hightower.

His Excellency had created a barrier of wind upon the Mississippi River to keep her and other intruders out, but the Eastern Witch was shrewd and relentless. With the help of her own skinjackers, she had destroyed a living-world bridge, causing it to cross into Everlost. Then with a train full of followers and slaves, she rode a powerful locomotive across the river.

At least that was the story.

Others said that she never made the journey herself—that something strange and mysterious happened to her, but no one could agree as to what it was. She flew off into the sky. She melted. She turned to stone. She turned to flesh. Each rumor was more outlandish than the last, and no one knew for sure if any of them were true.

Jix was called in for closer surveillance. Discover their numbers, discover their intent, then report back to the king. If these trespassing Afterlights were truly a threat, they would be dealt with quickly, and would never see the light of day again. It all depended on Jix’s report.

“You should skinjack the pilot of a flying machine,” His Excellency had suggested to Jix, “for speed in this matter would greatly please us.”

Jix, however, had resisted. “But sir, my skill to stalk comes from the jaguar gods. If I make my journey impure, they will be angered, and take the skill away.”

His Excellency had then waved his hand dismissively. “Do as you will—as long as you bring us the results We require.” The king always said “us” and “we,” even when there was no one else but him in the room.

So, on a bright autumn day, Jix set out in the borrowed body of a jaguar, and within that speedy beast, he forged over mountains and rivers, resting when he had to, but never for long. When he came near human villages he heard many languages. Remnants of ancient tongues, Spanish, and finally English. Once he heard English, and saw signs written in that language, he knew he was getting close, yet never once was he spotted, for he had the best of both species now: the keen senses of the jaguar, and the full faculties of a human mind.

The ghost train had crossed the bridge in Memphis, so this was his destination. He was certain to pick up a scent of the supernatural there, and track them down. As he drew nearer, he could feel the thrill of the hunt filling him. The intruders wouldn’t stand a chance.

    What changes reading to Beauty

    His words are moving and captive. This series, and book are ultimately one of the best I've EVER read. It was unbelievable. I jumped up and down! I shrieked when I saw it, grabbed it and rushed out of the store. I spent almost all night reading it and (I'm not encouraging this) I skipped school to read it. I just read and read this over 500 hundred page book. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING. Allie did something I would NEVER expect her to do, and someone disappeared in a completely unusual way that I've never heard of!!! And best of all the ending was such a twist, it ended in a way that finished everything off, but left me in love with it. If your looking for the next BEST BOOK EVER, here it is!!

    Exceptional!

    Neal Shushterman is one of the most amazing authors that I've had the grace of expierencing. His writing is crafty and laced with intricacy. He had me on the edge of my seat and living on every word, literally. The sly writing of this trilogy was filled with an air of elegance unlike any other. I don't believe that any reader would be disapointed.

    you'll love it if you liked the others

    This book once again brought in new information on Everlost but also it had the same type of storyline. The ending though, was epic. If you liked the others, this is a MUST. I loved it, I could not put it down and this was the longest book in the series, slow at some parts but never non entertaining. It was a great ending to my favorite series.

    great series!

    This series is really great and entertaining although it is obviously fiction. I hope you will be able to enjoy it but just remember that it is fiction and not necessarily meant to be taken seriously.

    Highly HIGHLY Recommended

    I stumbled over this author by accident or you could call it fate, or a skinjacker helping me.(haha) Honestly This series is a very thought provoking world that deals with the questions we all have about life and death and the things inbetween. I would highly recommened this and ALL of Neal Shusterman's books not for that fact that they are good, but that there is something about finding yourself and what your true purpose is in life in his books(the ones I've read so far). The fact that I wasn't able to put his books down or when I had to I couldn't stop thinking about them is a true writeres greatest hope. He captures everything he sets out to, wraps the entire series up in a nice fit and then lets your immagination wander to fill in the remaining "lives" of your favorite characters. You will not be dissapointed with this final book. Everyone has an ending(except for one, sorta). So get this book and the first two, everwild and everlost and READ till you finish, you'll be on a ride of your life. It's not all goose bumps, but it may happen, it could happen, but really we will never know until it does.

    GREAT READ!

    Once I started reading this series I couldn't put it down. There was a character named Mary who got more annoy as the series went on, but if you really think about it she thought she was doing the right thing. Besides her the other character were wonderful and full of life. Great ending to a amazing series.

    A must read for ALL ages...

    This trilogy is amazing. Shusterman keeps you interested througout the series by all of the twists and turns. I just finished Everfound, and it ends with a twist as Shusterman is the master of surprise endings. If you have a reluctant reader in your house, this would be a good way to begin a love of reading.

    Everfound Book Review: I very much enjoyed reading this series

    Everfound Book Review:
    I very much enjoyed reading this series along with this book! It kept my attention very well with multiple events happening simultaneously. There are adventures happening with Allie in one moment and in the same moment the author explains what the resurrected “chocolate ogre” Nick is doing and how he is starting to remember his goal to find Allie and conquer Mary. There are many characters to follow in the story, but pretty much all of them are essential to the plot.
    Even though this book has many different fictional features to it, the author made it seem very real; this caught my attention while reading. The story wasn’t rushed and there was great detail put into much of the story, which made it easy to visualize. I love the fact that the story had many different themes along with love and good vs. evil. I also really like how some of the characters changed along the way, especially Mikey who came from being a monster and part-ruler of Everlost, but changed into his human self and fought for the good of Everlost alongside Allie. Great book, great series.
