Ashton’s stunning conclusion to the Everneath trilogy picks up two weeks after the events of Everbound (2013). Even though she is now an Everliving, Nikki is adamant that she would rather die than live at the expense of human forfeits. Terrified for Nikki's survival, Jack, her ever-loyal boyfriend, begins a desperate attempt to reverse the process through any means possible. They form an unlikely alliance with Cole and together travel back to the Underworld to undo Nikki's fate and make her mortal once more. But the Queen has not forgotten Nikki's treachery, and she wants her destroyed for good.
