Waiting on Wednesday 59

October 30, 2013 Bookish 9

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows readers to showcase eagerly awaited upcoming releases.

This week I’ve picked Evertrue by Brodi Ashton

Now that Nikki has rescued Jack, all she wants is to be with him and graduate high school. But Cole tricked Nikki into feeding off him, and she’s begun the process of turning into an Everliving herself… which means she must feed on a Forfeit soon — or die.

Terrified for her survival, Nikki and Jack begin a desperate attempt to reverse the process using any means possible. Even Cole, who they expected to fight them at every turn, has become an unlikely ally — but how long can it last? Nikki needs to feed on Cole to survive, Cole needs Nikki to gain the throne in the Everneath, Jack needs Nikki because she is everything to him — and together, they must travel back to the Underworld to undo Nikki’s fate and make her mortal once more. But Cole isn’t the only one with plans for Nikki: the Queen has not forgotten Nikki’s treachery, and she wants her destroyed for good.

Will Nikki be forced to spend eternity in the Underworld, or does she have what it takes to bring down the Everneath once and for all?

Everbound ended with a cliffhanger and I really just want to grab this book and finish off the series! I didn’t love the first book, but surprisingly the sequel was better in my eyes. I’m hoping Evertrue continues the upward trend.

I’m usually not conflicted in love triangles, but I am with this one. If  Brodi does what most other YA authors do and have their protagonist end up with the first boy (in this case, Jack), it’ll be predictable and silly. I kind of want her to break the mould.

Also, I thought that the Everneath was an integral part of this world, so wouldn’t destroying it as the blurb implies put the world out of balance? I’d really love to see the protagonist sacrifice something for the greater good for once, and Cole’s awesome anyway. Way better than Jack.

    This cover is just is just amazing. I’m so in love with it. I have heard a lot about this series but still haven’t read it. Great pick 🙂

    The covers are really beautiful! I’ve read Everneath and I liked it, but I haven’t got to Everbound yet. I hope the last one won’t disappoint.

    I read the first book and really liked it, but I have yet to read the second one yet. I think I’ll wait for the final one to come out so I can read it together. Those covers are so pretty though!
    Lovely pick!

    This is one of those series I know I’m going to love but just having gotten around to reading it yet. Let’s hope that changes by January! 🙂
