Nikki has returned from the Everneath. She has six months to make amends for vanishing without a trace last year. She has six months to say goodbye, for good. If it were up to her, she would spend the time reconnecting with her father and her once boyfriend, but Cole keeps interfering. Cole is the boy who swept her away to the Everneath the first time, determined to make her his queen and rule with her by his side. Will she be able to escape his grips and those of the underworld, or will time run out?

Oh, I had such high hopes for this book. It wasn’t bad, per se. I could not get behind a single character. Not one. They were just all so full of their first world problems, when really they should have been concentrating on their otherworld problem. Even the adults were selfish and immature. Also, the annoying and ever present love triangle was just that, annoying. I liked the premise, and I liked the ending, despite the cliffhanger. Which means I may actually decide to read book two. I liked the descriptions of the Everneath, and I liked the effects it had on people. It was magical in such a way that was dark and evil, but appealing at the same time. I am so mixed about this one…
