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?

Everlife brings the conclusion--the end of this unique, fantastic trilogy.

The Everlife trilogy has truly been a breath of fresh air. Tenley Lockwood is such a unique character. Being a young adult with the weight of the world on her shoulders, she handled it as any other teenager would. With maturity (with flickers of immaturity) and indecisiveness. After all, who wants to make such a life changing decision without some deep thought? Especially when that decision could destroy a whole realm.

The evolution of Ten and Killian was...definitely a journey. After a rocky journey down a forbidden path, they do the one thing that seems right--bonding to each other. Not only because of the love they share but because if Tenley wants any chance at getting into Many Ends again, Ten needs to bond to Killian. For better or for worse. Things don't turn out quite as they planned and she finds herself with an extra enemy. Victory is not in sight and it feels like fighting a losing battle. But they cannot give up...the other path is not an option.

Very rarely am I happy with trilogy endings. I'm not a huge fan of cliffhangers, open endings or huge tragedies that bring the story to an end. I don't think I've been as happy or content after finishing a series before. Seriously. You cannot read Everlife if you have not read the first two installments but I will keep this review short and sweet to avoid any spoilers.

I'm sad that the series is over. I will miss each and every character and the world Showalter created but I can eagerly say I (im)patiently await the next Gena Showalter book (and I reccomend you all check out her other series' too!)
