Sixteen year old Alexis Munroe has only ever wanted to be accepted, to be popular even. The only problem is she can’t quite manage whatever that thing is that makes people popular. She’s nice, she’s smart, and she’s somewhat pretty. She even has two really great friends—Winston and Mercedes—but that’s not enough to make her popular. Or catch the eye of Collin Harper, the school’s hottest guy.
So, when the chance to get close to him by letting him work with her and her friends on an English Literature project comes up she jumps at it. This would have been fine, if they hadn’t ended up with a magical book that pulled them into a different realm.
Now, struggling with her desires and the fate of two worlds, Alexis must choose between what is right and what is easy.
Everlast (The Chronicles of Nerissette) is the first book in Andria Buchanan’s series about a young girl who soon finds herself (along with her classmates), with the magic of a dusty old book, transported to the magical realm of Narissette where karma rules and your social status is determined by what you deserve.
Allie Munroe has only ever wanted to belong. Nice and smart, but still invisible she jumps at the chance to be in a group project with her friends and the popular kids. Unbeknownst to her, they soon find themselves in Nerissette and if being in an unknown world wasn’t enough…she’s the Crown Princess! And to save herself and her classmates from evil forces she’ll have to become a leader.
I enjoyed this story and Ms. Buchanan’s world-building with its many magical creatures and how Allie is connected to Nerissette. The characters were also enjoyable. I loved Allie, Winston and Mercedes. This is a fun and entertaining introduction to a series that anyone who loves magic, adventure, and friendship will enjoy.
Everlast by Andria Buchanan is a story not to miss.
(I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.)
