KATE WINTERS HAS WON IMMORTALITY.
BUT IF SHE WANTS A LIFE WITH HENRY IN THE UNDERWORLD, SHE’LL HAVE TO FIGHT FOR IT.
Becoming immortal wasn’t supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she’s as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he’s becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate’s coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.
As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.
Henry’s first wife, Persephone.
I’m beginning to think I should give up reading for a while. I was all psyched for this book, but it simply didn’t live up to my expectations.
Yes, Kate returns from her six-month hiatus in the real world to become Queen of the Underworld, but the continuous internal angst over Henry loving Persephone became monotonous and annoying after the first few chapters. I was sorely tempted to skip entire passages because of this, but made myself read every word so I wouldn’t miss anything. I should have skipped.
The book is too full of characters who either talk too much or not enough. Henry is all kinds of standoffish and it’s almost as annoying as Kate’s internal angst. The sniping that Ava and Persephone did was interesting for the first page or two, but not so much after that. And the walking! Kate seemed to spend all her time walking through Hades.
I’m undecided about reading the next book. Maybe I’ll wait for some of my friends to read it first.
