Description:

Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.

Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.

My Thoughts:

I don't know what it is about these stories with Hades and Persephone that draw me in but I am always a fan of them this one is no different in this one we meet Pierce who died and came back, her time in the Underworld is slowly told through the story where we met John Hayden who is the ruler of this Underworld.  The two definitely have a great chemistry and connection.

In the normal world Pierce came back from her accident almost drowning to death to find so much changing around her.  Her father and mother divorcing and Pierce and her mother Deborah moving to Deborah's hometown in Florida.  What Pierce doesn't realize is that this town is where John resides in the Underworld.

We also learn what happened in her private school in Connecticut.  What happened to her best friend Hannah Chang and the affect that had on Pierce.  In Florida we also learn that nasty furies are out to get to Pierce and John does the only thing he can take her away.  Will she ever come home that is what I am left wondering.  Meg Cabot does a great job in the story telling of such a great book!
