Evermore is the sequel to Everless and was a good read for my 2019 challenge. I read the book pretty quickly as I wanted to know where it was going but I felt the second book was a little rushed which was a bit of a shame really. The first book really built up the story and shared lots of interesting turns where the second was very fast paced and actually I feel like it ended far too quickly.
I would have loved to see more of the history and learn more about the backstory and I felt Jules, the main protagonist, was never really in one place for enough time. I felt in some places she was trusted too quickly with people she barely knew and that just didn’t feel right to me really.
Evermore was very choppy in a way that having a map of the land Jules was in would have really helped as she was on the move a lot and I can’t help but feel she travelled a lot of distance in a very small amount of time. It did have a bit more character development between some of the relationships but again I felt they were too trusting too soon which isn’t all that relateable. I felt Everless was much more powerful and had more of a message behind it than Evermore which is what has left me feeling a little frustrated I guess.
A good, quick read and it was good to see the story progress but it just wasn’t long enough to explain the background more or get right into the nitty gritty of some of those character relationships.
One of my goals for 2020 is to read 52 books or around one a week. Some might be new, some are ones I’ve had for a while or been meaning to read, some I haven’t quite finished yet and some will be recommendations from others. You can see all the books I’ve read so far on my Good Reads 2020 Reading Challenge.
