Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being 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 months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen. 
As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's 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...

My Take:

When you go away you hope to find that your old life is still as you left it, for Nikki Beckett coming back after six months away is still hard on her. While away her friends and family thought that she was lost forever it wasn't until she got back that the pain of losing her was still so very much close. Even though she was gone for six months in the everneath she was bound to Cole for over a century. The only thought she had left that felt like her own was Jack's face. Even though she couldn't put a name to the face she knew she had to get back and find him. It all lead to the fact that she had six months to say goodbye to all that she left behind. Finding out that it was harder for her to say goodbye the only hope she had was for Jack not being mad at her for leaving yet again.

Time is of the essence here and playing against time is a tricky thing so all Nikki has to do and not lose herself is go back willingly with Cole and be forever his and become his queen. Nikki knew she didn't want to be his queen but with her doubts for her future she must decide live forever or be forever lost in the tunnels in the everneath. Forever is along time but with help or her side and time not can she really pull of staying on earth forever and have normal problems and not have to deal with a whole new set of problems. If only life can be like that, with her choices coming back to haunt her Nikki must be prepared for the worst and know that her choices will bring her closer to an end or a new beginning.

I loved this very much because of her choices Nikki gave herself to Cole even when he gave her fair warning. The love shared between Jack and Nikki really got to me it felt like watching the end of the of a really sad love story. It felt like I was there with Nikki telling her to choose wisely even though her choices had big consequences Nikki knew from her past mistakes. I felt the connection between her and Jack and even though it was a story it felt so real, the legend of the daughters was really neat and of course I love me some bad boys but Cole idk he still is growing on me but Jack wow he was my pick for her. Team Jack all the way. This so deserves to be on everyone's top pick for 2012 and everyone should read it. This is the love story that everyone will be talking about all year long.

5/5 stars
