    Everlife is such a powerful book, this entire series will make you believe in love and know that there's always hope even in the darkest of times. I loved every word of it, from beginning to end. I laughed and cried, my heart was close to bursting a time or two and I felt like I couldn't breathe more than once. Everlife will take you for the ride of a lifetime, through joy and sadness, through love and hate, through hope and despair, through life and death. It's a book not to be missed, it should be savored and appreciated, I took my time to read it, to appreciate every word and subtleties, Gena poured her heart into this book and it shows.

    The characters grew so much throughout the series, Ten went from being an insecure and skeptical girl to a strong, capable and loyal young woman willing to sacrifice herself for the well being of others. Killian went from being heartless and deceitful to being compassionate, honest and loving. I loved the way Gena decided to go in this book for Killian and Ten's relationship, it made everything

    better, it made me love their connection even more.

    The story is all about Ten trying to unite Troika and Myriad and saving as many people as possible while doing so. Ten has to make a lot of tough choices as well as Killian. We get to learn a lot more about him as well, his past, the decisions he had to make in order to survive. It was so interesting being in Killian's head and finally get to read how he truly feels.

    The secondary characters were an important part of the story as well. Some will surprise and delight you, some will infuriate you but in the end they all have a purpose.

    I don't know what it is with this series but I feel like Gena's writing style is different, not better per say, just different and I love it. The poems are one of my favorite thing in this series, I always read them several times as if I could soak up all the words and never forget them.

    Everlife was utterly riveting and incredibly well written, every word carefully chosen, every page will leave your heart pounding and wanting more. Gena wrote a breathtaking and perfect conclusion to this fascinating and unique series.

    I swear to GOD Tenley Lockwood, if you don't bring back Archer, I'm gonna rip off your arms and beat you to second-death with them.

    I can't believe I posted that last June. God, that feels like a long time ago. June 25th, in fact.

    Hate to ruin such a short, sweet pre-book review, especially one with so many likes, but I have a few things to say.

    This will contain MAJOR spoilers.

    First of all being when did Everlife become so HIPPIE? Every other page took the opportunity to nail in the same message:

    This will contain MAJOR spoilers.

    First of all being when did Everlife become so HIPPIE? Every other page took the opportunity to nail in the same message: love your enemy, light and love are the answer, forgive people, blah blah blah, blah blah blah blah blah.

    This whole book was so unbelievably goody-goody that it was painful, honestly. We get it, you're amazing, love is the answer, you're so good and pure inside, woo-fricking-hoo.

    However, I did really like this book. Like...a lot. Asides from the insufferable goodness, it did very well. It made me actually like Ten again. It made me actually like Killian, who, let's be honest here; was a HUGE asshole. And, not to mention the return of my favourite character ever, Archer Prince...So, Ten can keep her arms.

    It's cool, Ten.

    I mean, I think we saw it coming, but it's cool. I missed his character so much. He's pure in a way that's not insufferable—good in a way that isn't super annoying. I missed Archer so much in the second book—I'm so glad he's the character who came back.

    Though, I have to say, everyone coming out of the Rest at the end was a HUGE COP-OUT. Apparently, sacrifices mean nothing in this book.

    It was nice to see Ten and Killian's relationship develop a second time. It was nice to see KILLIAN develop a second time.

    So, while this book had its flaws, I really did enjoy it. I've been following this book right from the start and I'm happy with how it ended.

    And yknow...Archer Prince. That makes any book better right away.

    I've completed the trioligy and I feel so complete! This book wasn't as good as the previous novels but it was still so amazing and very emotional.

  • Ronda

    I have to say it was a struggle to reconnect to this world which surprised me because I loved the first two books. However, around 20% and I was there, enjoying the characters and the storyline.

    The ending wasn't superb, it was a little all over the place and I wasn't sure I even liked what I read. Overall though, a cute trilogy but definitely not what I'd expect from this author.

    The last third of the book got significantly better, though , I’m sure it’s because the bar was set impossibly low by the first half of the book. If I were to rate the last bit of the book it would be a 3/5 Stars.

    This book feels like it’s written for a very, very, very young crowd and then it throws in a sex scene that tries too hard to be sexy. (She dedicates a paragraph to talking about his “very, very, big bulge”.) The dialog is a problem on so many levels. It is corny, then disgusting (I’m looking at you “I can touch you now, why don’t you get on your knees and drink me down baby.”), then corny again.

    Killian and Ten go back and forth between their two “good” and “bad” sides every page and it is exhausting. Pick a side, and stick there. I realize that they were trying to choose while still looped in their bond, but we’ve played the “Killian is the bad boy” story line already. Give it a rest. What was the point of the character growth between Ten and Killian with the last two books if you were just going to hit reset and pretend it never happened?

    The “love” story between these two in this book feels like a middle school crush that you swear you’ll be with forever. Then you ignore your friends because of it and revolve your life around your “One True Love”.

    I am incredibly disappointed in this finale because I loved the first 2 books. The tone felt so disconnected between the others in the series.

    to bring this review to you, dear audience.

    If I seem ranty, have pity -

    In an effort to bring some coherency to my review, I will limit myself to the

    , the

    , the

    and the

    - but be warned, even then my review will be a doozy.

    When you die in the human realm, you go to your Secondlife depending on which realm (Troika or Myriad aka heaven/hell) you signed with (or you go to Many Ends, purgatory).

    You then

    (

    ) for the rest of your Everlife or at least until you reach your second-death and

    (the Rest).

    One thing that's been

    into the audience is that:

    when the author wants to bring back one of the characters she regrets killing off.

    BUT that is the only exception...

    ...

    when the author decides to kill off multiple characters and then wants to bring them back.

    Honestly, world building a la Showalter is like a

    . Does not make sense, and is horrific if looked at too long.

    For example:

    but (and I do not know how I can emphasize this enough)

    .

    says the author,

    And to that I say -

    So, that means every fertilized egg is

    Keep in mind, 70% of fertilized eggs do not implant in the uterus (according to google) - so that's a hella lot of unborn babies floating around this world. Ergo, the afterlife must be absolutely littered with unborn

    into humans.

    And...the author

    for the afterlife.

    to host the entire population of humans and animals that have ever lived on our planet.

    And that, my friends, is the only logical reason Troika and Myriad are at war -

    There is a whole host (and I mean an absolute ton) of inconsistencies.

    Most of them are

    , like this:

    If the whole premise is that

    (only Troika/Myriad) then how do the characters know what a devil is?

    But there are a lot of

    - such as Killian's accent. Now, for those who are not as familiar with our resident Sexay-Bad-Boy-With-A-Heart-Of-Gold, he has an accent that

    . Aka - every romantic scene has this:

    I cannot begin to explain how

    it was to read the inconsistent phonetic spelling of the author's made-up accent. (i.e. in the previous quote, he says "Yer" (for you), but later

    he says you (instead of ye)).

    - Killian was stillborn and was raised in the Secondlife orphanage and

    in the fourteen cities to have a phonetic accent.

    But...there are some

    that you wonder what went wrong in the editing room. From book 3, regarding Killian Flynn's mother:

    and yet, book two says:

    Hmmm...methinks an editor is in order, no?

    There's playing homage and there's

    other people's work. It's just - are you kidding me? How did the editor let this through? There's this:

    and this:

    and there's also a whole host of phrases where I couldn't quite place, but they are familiar enough that I know

    like this:

    and this:

    and this:

    and this:

    Honestly, I didn't care, she didn't care, the editors didn't care. So, I guess technically,

    Tenley was

    - just everything she does is absolute

    .

    For example, her fave hobby is creating long-winded, palindromic poetry on the spot with lines like this:

    To which all of the other characters lean back in awe and applaud.

    .

    In addition, now that Tenley's married, we have a whole new cringe angle: SEX:

    And I'm not even going to touch the rando

    , the weird shower scene where they

    or Tenley's annoying

    There's too much already in this review.

    Suffice to say, every time Tenley came on the page,

    More importantly, has anyone actually tested this? Let's give it the old college try.

    Angela's Booked and I have a reading challenge every year and this year, we had a prompt called "A book your friend doesn't recommend.

    And she didn't recommend book 1 to me.

    So, I read book 2 (solely out of spite) so I could not recommend it to her.

    And, then we were like...well, we read books 1 and 2...might as well go for the gold.
