Description-



  • 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.

Excerpts-

  • From the book



    When I was a kid, each fall my teachers had the class write and present one of those horrible "What I Did Last Summer" essays, complete with pictures and funny anecdotes designed to make a classroom full of bored students pay attention.

    Each year I sat and listened as my classmates in my New York City preparatory school talked about how they'd spent the summers in the Hamptons or in Florida or in Europe with their rich parents, or au pairs, or as we grew older, boyfriends and girlfriends. By the time we reached high school, the same glitzy stories got told over and over again: escapades in Paris with supermodels, all-night parties on the beaches in the Bahamas with rock stars--every student vied for attention with exploits that got wilder every year.

    But my story was always the same. My mother worked as a florist, and because most of her income went to paying for that school, we never left New York City. On her days off we spent our afternoons in Central Park soaking up the sun. After she got sick, my summers were spent in the hospital with her, holding her hair back as the chemo attacked her system or flipping through the television channels looking for something to watch.

    It wasn't the Hamptons. It wasn't Florida. It wasn't Europe. But they were my summers.

    The one after my first six months with Henry, however, blew every single summer my classmates ever had out of the water.

    "I can't believe you'd never swum with dolphins before," said James as I drove down a rough dirt road that didn't see much use. We were back in the upper peninsula of Michigan and surrounded by trees taller than most buildings. The closer we got to Eden Manor, the wider my grin spread.

    "It's not like we had a ton of them in the Hudson River," I said, nudging the accelerator. We were so far from civilization that there weren't any posted speed limits, and the last time I'd been down this road, my mother had been too ill for me to risk taking advantage of it. But now, after the council had granted me immortality, the only thing I risked was my old beat-up car. So far, I liked the perks.

    James bit off a piece of jerky and offered me the rest. I wrinkled my nose. "Suit yourself," he said. "You realize you're going to have to tell Henry about everything we did, right?"

    I glanced at him out of the corner of my eye. "I hadn't planned on otherwise. Why? What's wrong with that?"

    James shrugged. "Nothing. I figured he wouldn't be too thrilled with the idea of you spending six months in Greece with some dark, handsome stranger, that's all."

    I laughed so hard I nearly drove off the side of the road. "And who was this dark, handsome stranger? I don't remember him."

    "Exactly what you should say to Henry, and we'll both be in the clear," said James cheerfully.

    It was a joke, of course. James was my best friend, and we had spent the whole summer together touring ancient ruins, vast cities and breathtaking islands in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Maybe one of the most romantic, too, but James was James, and I was married to Henry.

    Married. I still wasn't used to it. I'd kept my black diamond wedding ring on a chain around my neck, too afraid of losing it to wear it properly, and now that we were only a mile or so away from Eden, it was time to put it back on. I'd struggled to pass the seven tests the council of gods had given me to see if I was worthy of immortality and becoming Queen of the Underworld, and because I'd won--only barely--Henry and I were now technically husband and wife.

    With the silence between us for the past...

    March 1, 2012
    Fasten your seatbelts, lower your expectations, then sit back and enjoy the modest pleasures of this mostly smooth sequel. Kate has graduated to deity status and married Henry (Hades, Titan-born Greek deity of the Underworld, reconfigured as a category-romance hero). She looks forward to her coronation as Queen of the Underworld, but Calliope (Hera) has other plans. She awakens her father, head Titan Cronus, enlisting his aid in a scheme to take down her victorious rival and promising his release from captivity in return. For that, she'll need help from her fellow deities, and there'll be collateral damage--destroying the Olympians and wiping out humanity. This may strike readers as overkill (and a shameless Rick Riordan retread), but it makes a nifty plot complication. Kate chafes at being left behind when the top Olympians leave to prevent catastrophe. She feels responsible, and, worse, Henry is in danger. Joined by Ava (Aphrodite) and James (Hermes), her trek to rescue him is the tale's main event. Henry remains the series' weakest link--less intriguingly mysterious than exasperatingly vague. Kate spends much of the text pondering and misinterpreting his intentions, but one can hardly blame her; this is a marriage badly in need of intervention from Deborah Tannen (You Just Don't Understand, 1990, etc.). A good bet for readers mostly interested in the romance. (Fantasy. 12 & up)
