Overview

Inspired by the Persephone myth, this stunning conclusion to the Everneath trilogy—whose captivating first book earned a VOYA Perfect Ten of 2011 and a Whitney Award—explores the resilience of the human spirit and the indomitable power of true love.

Now that Nikki has rescued Jack, all she wants is to be with him and graduate high school. But Cole tricked Nikki as they journeyed through the labyrinth of the Everneath together, and now she's begun the process of turning into an Everliving herself. Nikki and Jack begin a desperate attempt to reverse the process, using everything they can think of. Even Cole has become an unlikely ally—but for how long? 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.

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?

Nikki and Jack's relief at escaping the Everneath at the end of Everbound (2013) is short-lived, as they face the highest stakes yet. Nikki's health starts to fail immediately as she transitions into an Everliving. She will die if she doesn't feed. A transitioning Everliving can only feed on the Everliving who holds her Surface heart--in Nikki's case, and to boyfriend Jack's ire, Cole. Worse, Nikki has limited time before she will need to feed on a Forfeit. She doesn't want to damn an innocent to the Tunnels--the fate she narrowly avoided in Everneath (2012)--but Jack and Cole will do anything to keep her alive. After Cole and his band are attacked by followers of the Everneath's queen (hoping to thwart their plot to depose her and put Nikki in her place), only Cole escapes, but he does so with amnesia. Nikki and Jack capitalize on his memory loss to convince him that he was working with them to destroy the Everneath for good (which would prevent Nikki from dying or having to feed), but they can't be sure how much to trust him, as his memories may return. As in previous installments, the prose is sprinkled with references to Greek mythology. The beautifully orchestrated obstacles and rising tension position the characters so that they must succeed or die. Although the denouement passes very quickly, the ending satisfies and will break some hearts. (Paranormal romance. 13 & up)
