Review Underworld by: Meg Cabot

Title: Underworld
Author: Meg Cabot
Publisher: Point
Pages: 336
Series: Abandon Trilogy #2
Format: ebook
Purchase: Barnes & Noble | Amazon

Description:

Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead.

Not this time.

But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey.

Her captor, John Hayden, claims it’s for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they’ve come back as Furies, intent on vengeance…on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves.

But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there…and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies.

And unless Pierce is careful, this time there’ll be no escape.

My Thoughts:

What an incredible continuation to Abandon Pierce is now alive in the Underworld and trying to figure out what to do next.  When she stumbles across her cell phone and figures out she has to go back and check on her cousin and say good-bye to her mother.

What she doesn't count on how much goes wrong with going back.  She learns more about John and what happened to him so long ago.  From there she learns about what happened to her Uncle Chris's twenty years ago.  She also tries to help and protect her cousin until that becomes a situation where Kayla, Alex and the rest of the gang have to head to the Underworld.

Also the furies are back and still out to kill Pierce now matter where she goes.  This was an incredible journey full of adventure and drama I loved it!
