Note: This review contains spoilers for Book One of this series, Everneath , but none for this sequel. This is the second book in the series that is a modified retelling of the Persephone and Orpheus myths.
This time the author throws in yet more myths and classics: Sisyphus, the Minotaur, Dante, Scheherazade, and no doubt others I missed. In Book One see my review of Everneath , here , Nikki, caught at a low moment when she thinks her boyfriend Jack has cheated on her, allows a cute guitar player, Cole Stockton, to convince her to try his method of choice for escaping pain.
He takes Nikki to the Underworld to feed on hers, thus ridding her of bad feelings but good ones as well for a hundred years. But Nikki survived fairly intact. Cole, however, is convinced that Nikki survived so that she could be his queen in the Underworld.
When the six months are over, she was told that scary shade-like things would come and pull her back down to the Everneath.
But at the end of Book One, just when these shades were coming for Nikki, Jack leapt into her place and went instead. Persephone about to get access to the Surface for six months a year via pomegranate seeds.
But she knows time is running out, because his image is weakening. She is convinced that her only chance to rescue him is to get back, somehow, to the Everneath. And all roads lead to Cole….. Discussion: Once again, the character of Nikki is obsessive, self-centered, and impulsive. She is mean to Cole, blaming him for her own choices even though she occasionally gives lip service to recognizing her own responsibility.
And most unfortunately, Nikki is in many ways Too Dumb to Live. For example, in spite of her obsessive studies of mythology, when she sees her little brother working on mazes for school, she thinks to herself:. Similarly, she consistently conflates the ability to love with the physical presence of a heart.
Yeah, I know we need to take a leap of faith when we read paranormals, but this just seems beyond reasonable. And finally, in spite of having spent a hundred years in what is basically Hell, she is still clueless about its risks. Jack is too perfect to be convincing, and Cole is by far more interesting and attractive. None of it made any sense. Totally ridiculous thinking by Nikki. I will probably stick around for the third volume in this trilogy. You are a better person than I.
I like to check out all the accounts of Hell in case I need to know in the future, so to speak…. I have to give it to you for sticking with these, in spite of the difficulties that the plot and characters present. About to start reading the first book! You are commenting using your WordPress.

Added by 1 of our members. It's been two months since the dark tunnels of the underworld came for Nikki Beckett. That night, Nikki's boyfriend, Jack, made the ultimate sacrifice and took her place in the Everneath for eternity - a debt that should have been hers. Every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused, and wasting away.
