Goodreads Description




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 I'm Waiting

I was first drawn to this book because of the cover. It already looks amazing. From what I can see there was so much thought put into it. There is also a lot details that I can't see from the picture alone. I can't wait to see what it looks like once its actually printed out. I'm sure it's going to be stunning. 

For the actual content, this book sounds very intriguing. I'm always fascinated by parallel worlds but this seems like it will be done a little differently. The realms, as they call them, are the afterlife for this world. I'm interested in learning more about the realms and how they came to be however they currently are. I've never heard of this author but I'm looking forward to seeing how this is executed.

Anyone else looking forward to this release?
