Everneath by Brodi Ashton

5 stars

Confession-- this highly prized ARE has been sitting neglected in my house for months.  MONTHS.

Here's the problem, I know Brodi.  Okay, not like call-her-up-on-the-phone and go-for-ice-cream "know her" but I've met her, we've "talked" through blog comments a bit and I'm basically a stalker/fan.

And since I wasn't positive Everneath was my style, I've been honestly terrified that I wouldn't love it.

Which was just silly of me.  Clearly.  Because I devoured it in an evening and loved it.

Here's the thing: I'm a total sucker for mythology.  Like a total, major complete sucker for all things mythological.  Have been since I was like 10.  (N E R D, I know.)

And the blending of coming-of-age modern teen and ancient myth?  Freaking awesome.

Now I've got to start scheming to figure out how to get an early ARC of the sequel..... hmmmmm.

Utterly recommended.

(And Brodi's a local author!!  Hooray for local authors!!)


  1. It's hard to review a book of someone you know. Good that you ended up liking it.

  2. I wasn't worried it wouldn't be good, just not my style, lol. But yeah, knowing (or "knowing") the author makes it hard sometimes!
