Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Young adult, fantasy, mythology

Read April 2012

4.5 Stars

My Review:
I am rarely a crier in books. I didn't cry when Dumbledore or Dobby died. I didn't cry when Prim died. If I do cry, it is usually when someone is having really familiar emotions to something I've felt before. With that background, I did not cry in this book. However, I can see how many might cry. Everneath has a lot of strong emotions in it. If you tend to be a crier, then get your tissues ready.
I appreciate the nuggets of wisdom that Brodi Ashton included in this book. It was thoughful and mature. I would not call this a fun, teen read. It is not a quick, easy, move on to the "next which is just like it" book.
The only reason I gave this book 4.5 stars instead of 5 is because I like books tied up in a pretty bow. I don't mind the drama, but then give me happy. It is purely an opinion and this book would have been a 5 for me if it were a little bit "happier".

Warnings: Just a few swear words and they weren't the really strong ones.

I would let my 14 year old read this book.


  1. I liked this one too. It was a new take on the Greek myths which I enjoyed. Looking forward to seeing what happens next.

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed this book. It's one of my favorites and Brodi is such a great person IRL. I can't wait to see what happens in the next two books.
