4.5 stars. Can I just point out that I thought this YA paranormal series was going to be like every other paranormal series? To give you a hint: [b:Hush Hush|6339664|Hush, Hush (Hush, Hush, #1)|Becca Fitzpatrick|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1358261334s/6339664.jpg|6525609], [b:Marked|30183|Marked (House of Night, #1)|P.C.

Let me just tell you this now: You will not regret picking up Everneath. This book takes badass to a new level.
A few highlighted points:
◦ Do not expect Nikki Beckett to be a badass like Rose Hathaway. If you've read paranormal series like the ones stated above, you know that these types of heroines are strong "powerful" in different ways, not just physical fist-to-fist fight. But here's where they differ: Nikki actually doesn't want to make you want to rip your hair out.
◦ Jack is the most earthly, beautiful, common guy ever. He's not some god, or some faerie, he is normal. I think this is what I like best about him, and what won me over.
◦ Can I just tell you how cute Jack is? JackJackJackJackJackJackJack—
◦ Eh, and then there's Cole.
