Teen Fiction ASHTON

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Seventeen-year-old Nikki Beckett has just returned from the mythical underworld known as the Everneath, where her six-month stay felt (to her) like a century. Now her father, the town's mayor, doesn't trust her; her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Jack, is in flux; and everyone else thinks she's a recovering drug addict. She has six months of real life left before she must make a choice: be eternally condemned to the Tunnels, where her life will be drained away, or become one of the immortal Everliving, feeding off of "Forfeits" like herself, who have succumbed to despair (Nikki's pain is the result of her mother's death in a car crash). With her former captor, Cole, pressuring her to choose the latter option, Nikki discovers the awful truths about the Everneath. Jumping frequently between Nikki's time before and after her capture, this dark romance, Ashton's debut, is complex and intriguing. Drawing inspiration from such myths as Osiris, Orpheus, and Persephone, it explores the nature of loss and longing and what it means to be alive. Ages 14-up.
