My Review:

I'm not one into paranormal if you haven't noticed. But I decided to be daring a pick up this book focused on the Greek myth of Hades and Persephone. I'm glad I did.
First off what I liked about this book was the title: E-ver-neath. It just sounds mystical and mysterious, you know? :P I guess I'm weird that way. Oh well.
Second, this was one of the bestest love triangles I have read! Seriously, I'm still not sure which I prefer. Jack was her previous boyfriend but he just seemed like your typical high school quarterback. But he did act like he loved her. Still, his background makes him a little untrustworthy. Same thing with Cole. Except Cole was always there when Nikki needed him and he acted like he really loved her too. And don't forget Nikki ran to Cole so he could take away her pain, so she kind of asked for Cole to feed off her. So she really can't blame him for that. I guess I'm hoping that Nikki will go for Cole. Although if Will wasn't such a bum I'd say she should ditch both Jack and Cole and run off with Will.
Third, the characters were very well-written. Really lovable. The only thing I had a problem with was Nikki speech. She seemed to use 3 words over and over and over. In the same coversation. (yes, i've caught myself doing that too. oops)
Everneath (still like saying that) was a really good book and should not be missed by anybody who loves Greek myth and paranormal!

Cannot wait for Everbound:
