Summary:Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. 

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's..

The Book In Three Words: Beautiful. Haunting. Thrilling.

Rad Review: LOVED IT! This was one of those books that I finished the day I started it.  Kept my up till Midnight. Oh Epic. I loved the premise of the story and felt that it was really well developed over the course of the book. Brodi's writing also sucked me it. 

One thing I loved about the way the story was told is that when you are getting her history, instead of having Nikki just thinking about it. Brodi actually puts the story on pause and goes back, writing the scene of the event she's thinking about as if it was happening then. So you are skipping from Present to Past. But it totally worked and I loved that look back. I understood so much better as the story went along. 

The Theme of this book was redemption. Oh it was such a beautiful and well done tale. It just hit you. The redemption was gorgeous and so well portrayed. Amazing. As for the characters I love Nikki. And Jack. Really well done. I got so much more connect to Nikki seeing her past memories and so by the end for sure I loved her. What an incredible debut!

It was a gorgeous tale of Persophone and even Eurydias. I can not wait to see what happens in the next book.
