    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.

    Thank you so much to the publisher and Edelweiss for providing me a copy of this book!!!

    Great ending to a great trilogy! Gena Showalter really knows how to write multiple characters very well. Her stories are complex, but easy to read. She has provided me with MANY book boyfriends. This story even has the best messages throughout it. Messages that we all need to be reminded of daily. I only have two things keeping me from giving it 5 stars. First, I question the YA...it's seems more New Adult.

This story even has the best messages throughout it. Messages that we all need to be reminded of daily. I only have two things keeping me from giving it 5 stars. First, I question the YA...it's seems more New Adult. Not complaining, just letting you know that it's super sexy. It's probably more high school. (Once again, not complaining! LOL!) Secondly, it might be a little too long for some teens. Kids who are not super readers might be scared off by the size. All of that being said, it has a little bit of everything from humor to action to love. I am sad to see that my time with these characters has ended. I want to say so much more, but I don't want to spoil anyone else's enjoyment.

    What's next, Gena???

    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.

    It's hard to write a review on a final installment of a series because I have to be even more careful about spoilers now haha.It's hard to write a review on a final installment of a FAVORITE series because I don't want to say goodbye, yet here I am; just finishing the series and saying goodbye, for now, to these characters and this amazing world.

    I have so many contradicting feelings about writing this review; sad that the series is over, thankful that Gena wrote it because it's AWESOME and has definitely become one of my all-time favorites. Heartbroken about sad things happening throughout the series but also experiencing major I-LOVE-THIS-SCENE-SO-MUCH-MY-HEARTS-GOING-TO-COMBUST moments as well.

    What a joy it was to read this series. I fell in love in book 1 right away; the characters, the settings, the story-line itself, the romance.. Gena knows how to balance it all out really well. And, whether she's writing adult books or young adult books; she reels me in every single time. My love for the trilogy kept growing throughout book 1 and than book 2 - hsdbghjsbfghbdfg THAT BOOKKKK - and I was aching to get my hands on book 3. The wait was EXCRUCIATING, I tell you.

    And then I received this e-arc a week prior the release date, YAY ME! So I started on the e-arc and finished it through the printed edition I received because I had it in preorder. The downside on reading the book around its release day is; there aren't many people out there yet to share your feelings with yet - since the book has just been released - except through this non-spoiler review. So, WHAT I CAN tell you about this book and trilogy in general now, I will because if you're just as big of a fan of this trilogy as I am, I'm positive you're going to crave this book even more now hehe.

    I can imagine it's hard for writers to write final installments; readers have expectations and you need to live up to that and at the same time give everything closure like you, as an author, see fit.

    It's hard for readers, at least for me it is, to read final installments because, like I said earlier; you don't want to say goodbye and you're hoping for a good final book in the series, that'll do the series justice. I don't often come across final installments that WOW me away, whether it's really famous authors or not so well known authors. Final installments are tricky.

    I think it's a Great final installment. It didn't WOW me entirely but it was a great read from the beginning until the end because once started, I didn't want to stop reading. I love Gena's writing and she was once again able to lure me into the book right away.

    I experienced development issues regarding things towards the end - it felt a bit rushed and sometimes it felt like things/situations changed too fast to my liking. But, I did get my answers to all of my questions so that's satisfying and I need satisfaction when ending a series. I loved how she divided the book into three parts and how I, in that way, got to see a lot of all the worlds/settings again, that I fell in love with the first two books.

    We get reacquainted with old friends, we meet new people and we get to see how Tenley and Killian have to fight for the battle of their lives and for their happily ever after. Just when I thought they had it all after reading book 2, these curveballs were thrown their way very early on - PREPARE YOURSELF! I LOVE Tenley's character and she keeps growing still in this last book and I adore the fact that she remains so strong - sure, she has her moments of weakness like we all do - with or without 'someone' at her side. She fights hard for what she believes in, for the ones she loves and she goes above and beyond to achieve her goal and this time she plans on keeping Killian a huge part of it -

    There's so much I want to rant about, fangirl and talk about with someone because aside from the sadness, heartbreak there also is a lot of joyful things to talk about. The addition of the animal guardians in the book was awesome and I love how Gena puts her love for animals in her writing.

    * It had its moments when I was figuratively 'brought to my knees' with tears pooling in my eyes and a heart ready to break - this happened during sad moments but joyful moments as well.

    * It was yet again, beautifully written and I don't think Gena is even able to disappoint me on that front because her writing is just always stellar I think.

    * I loooved every second spent with these characters because I came to love them as if they were my closest friends.

    * I loved spending time in Troika, Myriad and other places again - the world building is just so awesome I think.

    And despite me having issues regarding the story-line development at times, I still think it's a good ending of the trilogy since it answered all my questions. I do think though, if there was a fourth book, the series would've had the possibility of developing better since the author would've had the chance to expand things in this book and give more attention to some scenes. So I keep hoping, seeing how things ended, there'll be a fourth book in the future.

    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.

    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.
