Abigail Bishop is a seventeen-year-old African American Goth girl hiding a secret. The kids at school tease her and her mother is always leaving on business trips. She locks her door every night to keep her father away, but this one night she forgot and now her life is about to change forever.
Basil Hines is eighteen and is under pressure to be perfect; his mother will accept nothing less. Basil’s escape is to his college dorm where he is free of his mother and his preoccupied father. Little does Basil know that the freedom he covets so much will be snatched away from him.
Neverlove is a story geared toward the young adult reader. Basil and Abby are the type of characters that will draw the reader in and keep you glued to the page. The story is written from each of the characters perspective as they interact with one another and with the other characters in the book like Father Jon Quanon, Lisel, Jon’s assistant and Drakar the devourer. These three characters also have their own stories and demons to conquer or unleash.
I loved the story, the struggle between good and evil, light and dark, as well as the personal demons they had to overcome before they could be who they were meant to be. I also loved the relationship between Abby and Basil; it was sweet and I was happy to see these two once lost teenagers find each other.
Neverlove is a story that I would recommend, it’s a good read and the only negative I saw was that it moved slowly in some places and I found myself skipping to the next paragraph just to find the point of what was happening. Overall, Neverlove is a good story.
