Here we have the exciting conclusion to the Everlife trilogy by Gena Showalter!

STAND TOGETHER OR FALL ALONE.

THE FATE OF THE EVERLIFE HANGS IN THE BALANCE.

At seventeen years old, Tenley “Ten” Lockwood had to make the ultimate choice—where to live after she died. Loyalty to her selected realm has not wavered…until now. She is out of time. Sacrifices must be made, and a terrible price must be paid. But is she too late?

As the Everlife descends into darkness, a single truth becomes clear: Troika and Myriad must unite—or perish. In order to bring sworn enemies together, Ten must enter forbidden territory…and destroy the powerful Prince of Ravens. But there’s only one way inside—bonding with Killian Flynn, a deadly rival who sets her blood aflame.

When nothing goes as planned and betrayal leads to the edge of utter defeat, Ten and Killian will have to rebuild trust from the ashes of their hearts. Victory seems impossible, the odds stacked against them. In the end, how far will they be willing to go for the sake of their realms and the Everlife?

My Thoughts…

I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times before but reviewing a series of books without revealing the plot or spoilers in general is extremely difficult. I pride myself on being able to deliver informative reviews without spoiling it for future readers. Please forgive me if I let anything crucial slip.

At the end of Lifeblood, Ten and Killian decide to make the ultimate commitment to each other without knowing what will happen to them.

“Killian,” I say on a wispy catch of breath. “My answer is yes.” His hold on me tightens. “You mean…”

“I mean yes.” I nod. “Yes I will make covenant with you.”

I’m sure you can guess what this means for our star-crossed lovers, but if not you’ll have to read it yourself to find out.

We also lose a key character, someone very important to Ten and the rest of Troika and the fall-out creates a very interesting twist. One that will affect the direction of the story. And if that’s not bad enough, Troika has been hit. Hard! Leading Myridians to believe that they can squash the “light” forever.

Which brings us to “Everlife”, the final chapter in this saga

Ten and Killian do make covenant and the results are unexpected and terrifying. The war to end all wars is imminent but Ten believes they can still triumph, that there can still be peace.

The rest of the book is a supercharged with all action. Key players we thought were lost return and Ten learns so much more about the “Grid” and her own powers.

Like the other two books, I couldn’t put it down. How fortuitous to discover these books after all had been released? I literally read them back to back over the course of three days. I love when that happens 🙂

This was a good book. Exciting, romantic, and enthralling. Everything is resolved with no loose ends and I am happy with how everything turned out. All in all, a great trilogy!

Now I have to read Showalter’s White Rabbit Chronicles. I’ve been meaning to for ages!
