debut novel is a fresh breath of air in a genre swamped with witches, vampires,
and werewolves! The mythology she brought to life in this story is amazing! I
already knew the myths of Persephone and of Orpheus and Eurydice and so I was
very interested to see Brodi’s take on this myth.
She did not
disappoint at all!
This is my take
on the story but in the synopsis the immortal Cole is the villain. I
disagree-- I believed time was the bad guy. I actually fell head over heels
in love with Cole. I believe he was behaving the only way he knew how. If I would
have been Nikki I would have followed him wherever he asked me to. Nikki on the
other hand is completely in love with Jack all her plans and her reason for
coming back is Jack. I liked him but for some reason I didn’t connect with him
like some of my other friends did. I figured out what was going to happen at the
end of the story about half way in but that didn’t stop me from finishing I had
to make sure that Brodi didn’t throw in any surprises there.
Another reason I
finished? Brodi’s writing is superb and I had to see how she was going to write
the end and like I figured she left me wanting more! I am so happy this is a
trilogy I put Everneath down and immediately wanted to start book 2, which sucks
because we have a long wait for that.
been posting quotes from my favorite characters to show you why I love them so
now for a quote from the immortal rock god Cole ;)
when something hurts us, our hearts break a little- in a slightly
more… literal way than for humans. Our pain sort of spills out and onto
anyone around us. We call it a cracked heart.”
I loved him
before that quote and I believe I fell a bit harder at that moment!
If you like
mythology or just want an awesome read this book is definitely for you! The
wonderful love story will keep you turning the pages either way you read it
Nikki and Cole or Nikki and Jack it is epic and I highly recommend it!"
