"A thrilling new novella from the author of the Everneath series!

Jack is trapped for eternity in the Tunnels while Nikki has managed to evade Cole's grasp . . . for now. But Cole is more desperate than ever to find answers about Nikki, his best chance for taking over the throne of the underworld. How did she survive the Feed? Can Cole find another Forfeit like her who can survive it too?

Cole's quest leads him to the other side of the world, to a mysterious, dangerous society known as the Delphinians, whose price for information might be higher than Cole can pay—a price that could destroy Nikki. But when Cole attempts to steal the answers instead, his mission ends in disaster. Faced with centuries in a Delphinian dungeon, Cole is confronted with questions he's been too scared to ask himself: Is he really obsessed with the throne—or is he obsessed with Nikki? And can she really give him a new beginning as the Everneath's king . . . or will she instead bring about his tragic end?"

My Thoughts:

Hello my name is Teresa and I have an obsession with the broken underdog bad boys. In this case I am talking about Cole. I absolutely loved him in Everneath, even though I wasn’t really supposed to, and I am still completely on his side! When I first found out he was getting his own novella I had a mini freak out session and I am so happy I finally got around to reading this bad boy! 

Getting inside Cole’s head was so interesting and enlightening. We are able to see how he truly feels about Nikki and we also see what life is really like for Cole. What I liked best is that Cole is clearly not perfect, not by a long shot. He makes some bad decisions and spends a lot of time lying to himself, and other people too. He refuses to realize that this quest he is on has more to do with Nikki herself that anything else he claims. It takes a lot for him to finally realize what is painfully clear to everyone else. 

Neverfall is a great bridge between Everneath and Everbound. It gives the reader some perspective and is simply a quick and fun read. I loved learning more about Cole and cannot wait to see more of him in Everbound!

  2. Id' love to read more from Cole's POV! I had a huge soft spot for him in Everneath, and you make the novella sound so amazing! The only reason why I haven't bought it yet is that I know it costs 3$ in the US but it's 9$ in my location... and I'm sorry, but that's too much even for a full-length ebook IMO, even more so for a novella. So I'm waiting for it to go on a special sale or something *sigh* Or for my will power to fade, because... it's Cole ^^'
