I must first that I haven’t anything quite like Everneath before. It was definitely a good change up. I loved the mystery of Nikki’s story all the way up to when everything was revealed. This was a very emotional read, especially towards the end! I loved how it switched scenes from before the Feed, during, and what is going on now afterwards. The way things are described it’s as if you’re right there with Nikki.
Cole is a very interesting character. He is a Everliving so he isn’t suppose feel any emotions himself, just Feed off them. Throughout he tells Nikki that they are meant to be together because he wants her to rule Everneath with him. I was left wondering if Cole could really feel anything, does he love her or care about her? It sure seemed like it to me. I would have liked to know more about how or why Cole has picked Nikki as the one to be with him (besides what is given to use in Everneath).
The love in this novel is so beautiful. Jack has loved Nikki, or Becks as he calls her, since she first moved to town and she has always loved him. After she comes back he gives her space but is constantly there for her in case she opens up or needs him. She finally does open to him about literally everything and now absolutely nothing can come between them. I found myself sometimes frustrated with how Nikki acted but I know and understand why she is that way. She was trying to be brave and make up for things that happened before she just up and left again.
This is a dark captivating read that will have your emotions all over the place, full of love and sacrifice. Overall I enjoyed this book a lot and would definitely recommend it to others. I got through it in just hours because it was just too good to put down.
