Everbound by Brodi Ashton

Everbound (Everneath #2)
Author: Brodi Ashton
Publisher: Balzer + Bray
Publication Date: January 22, 2013

Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity — a debt that should’ve been hers. She’s living a borrowed life, and she doesn’t know what to do with the guilt. And every night Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away.

Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen — and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to assist her in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.

Nikki and Cole descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they’d anticipated — and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack — even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.

Everbound is the sequel to Brodi Ashton's Everneath. Everbound focuses on Nikki and Cole as they both find a way to rescue Jack. Despite Cole's feelings for Nikki, he does everything he can to help her. Together, they face difficult challenges of the Tunnels.

This one is much more action-packed and is filled with suspense that has your emotions all over the place. It will keep you guessing, and questioning every single move that each character makes. I don't normally like flashbacks but this book excelled in it quite amazingly. I was dying for more flashbacks rather than reading the present.

The characters were as better as ever. I loved Cole. You can actually get the evil and good side of him in this book. There were times where I loved him and time I wanted to kill him. In the end, he will have you confused. On the other hand, Jack, though he was absent for the most part in this book, you also get the positive and negative side of him. Both characters were complex and flawed, but they were well-written characters.

Everbound was a great sequel to the first book. Perhaps, even better than the first one. For those who haven't read it, you definitely should; it will definitely have you yearning for the third book.
