Spoilers in the summary below, if you haven't read Everlost!

Everlost, the limbo land of dead children, is at war. Nick the “Chocolate Ogre” wants to help the children of Everlost reach the light at the end of the tunnel. Mary Hightower, self-proclaimed queen of lost children and dangerous fanatic, is determined to keep Everlost’s children trapped within its limbo for all eternity. Traveling in the memory of the Hindenburg, Mary is spreading her propaganda and attracting Afterlights to her cause at a frightening speed.
Meanwhile, Allie the Outcast travels home to seek out her parents, along with Mikey, who was once the terrifying monster the McGill. Allie is tempted by the seductive thrill of skinjacking the living, until she discovers the shocking truth about skinjackers.
My rating: 5 of 5
My thoughts on the book:
I loved this one, too! Great sequel & now I can't wait for Everfound to be published! Most of the characters we met in Everlost are still here & we meet some new ones! My favorite character in Everlost was Nick & in this one my favorite is Mikey! I was expecting to see more of Vari, but he's not in the book! So, that's one thing that surprised me! There were a lot of little twists & turns through the book, but the reason why skinjackers can skinjack surprised me a lot! I definitely didn't expect that! As for Mary, I have one word: she's crazy! Everwild is fun, funny & amazing book, that it was hard to put down & I want to read the sequel now! I highly recommend the series!
