BOOK REVIEW: Everneath (Everneath #1) + Neverfall (Everneath #1.5) by Brodi Ashton

Everneath (Everneath #1) by Brodi Ashton

Technically, I've read the ebook version of Everneath by Brodi Ashton last year. So, this would be my second time reading this novel since my partner in crime, Cathy, gave me a paperback of it for Christmas. And so, I decided to re-read it again in preparation for its sequel Everbound.
My love for this book has no bounds. Honestly, I would never get tired of reading this novel and I am so glad that my friend actually got it for me. I would have bought it myself but she gave it to me anyway so Yey! Again, the ending simply broke my heart. I think Jack and Nikki's love is truly an epic one. Anyway, I wouldn't delve into this further since my thoughts regarding this book hasn't changed. Here's my original review of the novel.

RATING: 5/5 stars

Neverfall (Everneath #1.5) by Brodi Ashton
As  some of you might know I'm a sucker for novellas especially of novels that I liked.  And since Ms. Ashton released a novella told in Cole's POV then definitely decided to read it just to fill in the gaps before I star Everbound. The novella is called Neverfall and sadly it's only available as an ebook. Not that I have anything against ebooks. I just prefer reading actual books instead of the usual e-readers or in my case iBooks.

For some reason the novella made me like Cole more. I think reading through his voice just made him seem more human. And I think as much as he tries to deny that he has feelings I'm positive that he has now. I think he'd do anything for Nikki even if he taunts her every now and then. I really felt his pain as I  read this. I also liked the loyalty of his friends towards him. And his soft spot was just to die for. He made me feel giddy and I think I fell in love a little with our resident "Mean Guy". The glimpses of his humanity turned me to mush for some reason. 

Neverfall is a really short novella which made it really easy to read but for some reason it made me feel like I was reading an actual novel. Seriously, I think it was well-written for a novella. I really liked the rare display of Cole's humanity and his love for his band mates and Nikki. Anyway, I think this is an awesome bridge for Everbound. I'm currently reading it btw.

RATING: 4/5 stars
