Description: 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. 

I Give This ...

I seriously squealed when I opened up my mail and found this inside.  I found Everneath to be so intriguing and I was eagerly awaiting the sequel. 

I was a little bothered in the first book by the idea that Nikki was gone for six months and when she returned it was like she was never missing.  This time around, you very much tell that Jack's absence is noticed.  Nikki is  hounded by Jack's family, the police, her own friends, and her father.  Every day she must live with the guilt of knowing were he is but not being able to save him.  She has no way into the Everneath, and no idea how to get to the tunnels.  But, she will stop at nothing to get there.

When Cole finally shows up, Nikki convinces him to taker her into the Everneath.  I was surprised he didn't actually agree to take her right away.  But, he soon realized she was more at risk without a guide, and she would get there with or without him.  I wish we would have gotten more a glimpse of how the thriving parts of the Everneath function.  But, I loved the maze and the rings.  I was especially intrigued with how the outcasts are made to wander the maze.  Since each ring targets different emotions, its definetely not a place I would want to spend eternity in.

I really was fascinated by the back story on the Queen and who she really is.  It's no wonder that she might afraid of Nikki.  I did feel a little confused by what happened in the tunnel.  I don't think its explained very well and I'm hoping that it might be in the next book.  I was a little shocked at the ending.  Everything does not seem right and I don't think its just because of who Nikki is.  I can't wait to fill in the blanks.

Great second book in the series!
