Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her, taking her place in the Tunnels of the Everneath for eternity - a debt that should've been hers. Now she is living a borrowed life, and she doesn't know what to do with the guilt. And every night, Jack appears in her dreams, lost and confused and wasting away. No matter how she tries to reach for his hand, she can never find it.
Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen - and the one person least likely to help. But his heart has been touched by everything about Nikki, and he agrees to help in the only way he can: by taking her to the Everneath himself.
Nikki and Cole, along with Cole's bandmate Max, descend into the Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they'd anticipated - and more deadly. From a Lake of Blood and Guilt to Sirens' alluring tricks to insurmountable walls of rock and flame, the trio is given every reason to turn back and give up. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack - even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own.
In this breathtaking sequel to Everneath, Brodi Ashton tests the bonds of destiny and explores the lengths we'll go to for the ones we love.

I was going to skip the second book in this series and jump straight to the third. I am so glad I didn't. I think this one was better then the first! Great details. Good storyline. And a surprising end! I didn't see that coming at all.
The first book was hard to get through with way too much emotion and very little story. The concept of the ever neath is a great idea and could have been rich in story. This was better but rather than using the story to enrich the author again chose emotional remembrances to embellish. Could have been much better but still better than the first.
Yes, because it's great.
The whole thing
I love Amy. She brings the characters to life.
I finished it in two weeks.
Cole, many layers to this guy. I didn't see that ending coming.
Sorry Amy, but I don't like your main character voice. Please give them some more life. I have been putting off getting this book and the 1st one because her. However I did like the story.
Can't wait for the 3rd book.
