Summary (from Goodreads):
“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.”
I loved this so much more than I did Abandon! It seemed a lot more interesting and action-packed. The biggest problem I had with Abandon was that Pierce had information I didn’t, and that wasn’t true in this one.
Instead, my current biggest problem happened twice in this book: John knew something Pierce didn’t but didn’t tell her because he assumed she knew. I could see that happening once, but twice? After the first time, assume you have to tell Pierce EVERYTHING.
But that’s a minor problem. This was an incredibly fun book, and I cannot wait to read book three (which doesn’t even have a preorder up on Amazon). I think this came out in April, so I’m glad that I have less than a year to wait. I’m hoping it pops up on Netgalley or Edelweiss so that I can get it even sooner.
