In a new twist on the classic Hades/Persephone myth, contemporary teen Nikki has been given a six-month reprieve from the Everneath to tie up the loose ends in her life. Narrator Amy Rubinate’s slightly breathy voice captures Nikki as she tries to resume her friendships and familial relationships, and to reconcile with Jack, the boy whose memory helped her to maintain her identity during her century-long imprisonment below. As Nikki and Jack search for a way to escape her obligation to the Everneath, Rubinate evokes Nikki’s despair, her longing to stay with Jack, and her destructive fascination with Cole, the boy who originally lured her to her doom. Rubinate’s charismatic narration delivers the sweeping romance of this taut mythological tale. J.M. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2012]
