Guest Blog: Brodi Ashton’s Jack from EVERNEATH

January 17, 2012 Guests 2

Highly anticipated doesn’t really begin to describe EVERNEATH (available on January 24, 2012 by Balzer + Bray), the first book in a new paranormal YA series by Brodi Ashton.  Not only does it involve Greek mythology, but an ATUF favorite myth at that: Persephone.  We’re getting a little one on one time with 1/3 of the detectibly dangerous love triangle in this book: Jack.  Jack is the boyfriend Nikki left behind when she was ‘sucked into the underworld,’ and he’s the reason she came back a year later.  I hope you enjoy this ‘glimpse’ into Jack’s head.  Be sure to check out all the stops on the EVERNEATH tour via The {Teen} Book Scene, and Abigail’s review on Saturday.

About the author:

Brodi AshtonBecause of two parents who were Greek myth geeks, I grew up thinking the latest fashion trends were inspired by Aphrodite, and a good conversational opener was, “So, which mythological character do you most resemble?” Despite these social shortcomings, I found a great husband who’s always my first reader. We live in Utah with our two young boys, who still have no idea why I’m at the computer all the time.
I received a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Utah and a Master’s degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics.

Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she’s returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld… this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there’s a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he’ll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki’s time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she’s forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole’s…
