Series: Everlife #1
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: February 23, 2016





Tenley “Ten” Lockwood is an average seventeen-year-old girl…who has spent the past thirteen months locked inside the Prynne Asylum. The reason? Not her obsession with numbers, but her refusal to let her parents choose where she’ll live—after she dies.

There is an eternal truth most of the world has come to accept: Firstlife is merely a dress rehearsal, and real life begins after death.

In the Everlife, two realms are in power: Troika and Myriad, longtime enemies and deadly rivals. Both will do anything to recruit Ten, including sending their top Laborers to lure her to their side. Soon, Ten finds herself on the run, caught in a wild tug-of-war between the two realms who will do anything to win the right to her soul. Who can she trust? And what if the realm she’s drawn to isn’t home to the boy she’s falling for? She just has to stay alive long enough to make a decision…

Why We’re Waiting On It

The blurb makes this book sound ah-mazing: Fantasy dystopian about people living their “real” life once they die? Yes please! And the idea that there is romance, intrigue, and a girl who holds both worlds in the balance is all kinds of exciting. Dani is up for anything that has Fantasy or Dystopian in it, so a combination of both is making her very happy. Jamie just thinks it sounds super cool!
