Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she's returned--to her old life, her family, her boyfriend--before she's banished back to the underworld . . . this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance--and the one person she loves more than anything. But there's just one problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who enticed her to the Everneath in the first place, has followed Nikki home. Cole wants to take over the throne in the underworld and is convinced Nikki is the key to making it happen. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back, this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time on the Surface draws to a close and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she is forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's queen.

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!
