Book Description

4 Feb 2010
Nick the "chocolate ogre" wants to help the children of Everlost to reach the light at the end of the tunnel, and is slowly handing each child a coin which will release them from Everlost. But Mary Hightower wants to trap the children forever, and joins forces with Pugsy Capone, a death boss, who gains allies in a terrible way...Meanwhile, Allie has gone in search for her parents and joins up with a group of "skinjackers". But, as her search takes her further away from Nick and the children of Everlost, Allie uncovers a shocking secret...it seems that "skinjackers" are not actually dead...In this riveting sequel to the imaginative, supernatural thriller, Everlost, there is new dark force to be reckoned with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the first 4 Mar 2010
By Jo
I loved it! I cannot tell you just how mind blowing the plot of Everwild is! Despite the obvious detail in the blurb, there were so many things that happened in this book that would literally have me gawping at the book. Everwild is written in the same style as Everlost, which I can only describe as sweet, so there is nothing graphic or too violent that actually happens in the book, which I think just makes these bombshells even more surprising!

There were moments in this book when I was close to tears, there were moments when I was so disturbed and disgusted I didn't want to read anymore - but couldn't put the book down at the same time. We find out more about Everlost, about skinjackers and ecto-rippers, and we see the characters we followed in Everlost evolve in surprising ways. I said in my review of Everlost that it was really unique in its world building; the world building didn't stop with that book, it continues in Everwild, and there's so much more to discover and be in awe of. It's just fantastic.

There's nothing I can really add about the great characters I mentioned in the last review than to say is that they get better in this book. We still have Nick, Allie, and Micky, and they're great! Mary, however, is a whole different ball game. I said she was quite twisted and disturbing in my review of Everlost, but in Everwild, she goes above and beyond. She is just evil, there is no other word for it. She's evil, and scary in her disturbing ways - and what's even worse, she truly thinks she's doing the right thing, and is as sickly sweet as ever. She's actually lovely. It's disgusting!

We meet some new characters along the way, too, and re-meet some older secondary characters who become more important.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great continuation and more lost time 28 Feb 2010
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Having been blown away by the original tale in the series by Neal I really had been looking forward to this offering. With an interesting and new concept within the text I just hoped that the imagination of Neal would live up to my expectations from the first and really hoped that I wouldn't be disappointed. So upon picking up the second novel what did I get?

Within the pages the characters from the original grew as they became more familiar within their own world, new characters were introduced and there was someone that every reader who picks up this title will come to love with a cast of colourful individuals that helped wend the tale on its merry way. Add to this a masters touch at narrative, a cracking sense of timing and a mind with the ability to seamlessly twist the readers expectations away from them with a little slight of hand. A cracking series and one that will be highly recommended by myself for others.

A great development with twists and turns in the tail. A real adventure story with well shaped and strangely believable characters. On to the final instalment...

4.0 out of 5 stars Shusterman Does It Again 2 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There aren't too many better writers than Neal Shusterman at the moment. He writes excellent theme-driven novels, that require the reader thinks about the world in which they live, whilst keeping things readable and exciting throughout. He can also write a brilliant ending. The climax to Unwind is awesome and Everlost, had me desperate for more. Everwild is exactly the same.

The book follows Nick, aka the Chocolate Ogre. Allie, who must come to terms with her new powers as Skinjacker, and Mary Hightower, the benevolent villain of the first novel. Locked in an eternal love-hate relationship Nick and Mary battle to thwart one another for the souls of the Everlost. This novel isn't quite as good as the first. In order to give his novel extra legs Shusterman has had to introduce new concepts into his world, some of them like what Skinjackers are, work. Others don't work quite so well, and damage the integrity of the world the author painstakingly created in the first novel . That said, as a tale of loss and redemption, Everwild is a magnificent piece of fiction. This is a trilogy well worth following.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 12 Mar 2011
By Emma
The first book was entertaining, but a lot of it was taken up by the more 'technical' aspects, the information and the truth about what was going on there. Therefore, this book was wholly better. It was awesome! The mixture of revelations,disaster and shocking twists made this a story that is definitely one of my favourites.

A great read if you enjoyed Elsewhere or Before I Fall - a little lighter, younger, than those two though perhaps.
