This book was so hard to read. Not because it was bad, but because it was just an emotional book. You really feel Nikki's loss as she returns from being trapped in the Everneath for a century. She left without having said goodbye to anyone- her family, friends, boyfriend, and she sees how difficult their lives have been without her. She is trying to put the pieces back together and prepare as she has to go back to the Everneath in 6 months.
I really liked how the book tied in both Greek and Egyptian mythology- both have always fascinated me, so I loved how it all tied together.
I don't want to give anything away, but through loss, loneliness, emptiness and heartbreak, there does come hope. And the end of the book wrapped up beautifully as we experienced that hope as well as selflessness amongst the main characters.
Great read- can't wait to see how book two plays out!
