My Firstlife is over, but my Everlife is only now beginning.

With her last living breath, Tenley "Ten" Lockwood made her choice and picked her realm in the Everlife. Now, as the war between Troika and Myriad rages, she must face the consequences.

Because Ten possesses a rare supernatural ability to absorb and share light, the Powers That Be have the highest expectations for her future—and the enemy wants her neutralized. Fighting to save her Secondlife, she must learn about her realm from the ground up while launching her first mission: convincing a select group of humans to join her side before they die. No pressure, right?

But Ten's competition is Killian, the boy she can't forget—the one who gave up everything for her happiness. He has only one shot at redemption: beating Ten at a game she's never even played. As their throw-downs heat up, so do their undeniable feelings, and soon, Ten will have to make another choice. Love…or victory.

Huge Gena Showalter fan here!!  I read the first book in this series and was floored with how original of an idea the story was.  So smart.

But I’m scratching my brain over the five star reviews in Goodreads from people who have clearly not read the book (ARC) yet.  It really downgrades the integrity of Goodreads ratings, that’s for sure…



What are you waiting on???







About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.

  1. The only books I’ve read by Gena Showalter are the Lords of the Underworld. Overall, I’ve enjoyed that series, even if I don’t love every book in the series. I’m like you, I can’t stand seeing people rate a book they haven’t read yet. I’ve seen people rate on cover and blurbs or just excitement of getting the book (like the example you gave). It is frustrating. I wish Goodreads wouldn’t allow ratings for books that are at least not in the “Read” shelf. I think that would cut down on this kind of behavior, at least some.
