Synopsis:
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.


OMGosh!! Rarely have I read Young Adult that has me so emotionally invested in the story.  I truly enjoyed being back in the story.  I love Kate and Henry together. although most of the book was spent with Kate coming to grips with her new role and her new responsibilities.

She also had to combat the ghost of her predecessor figuratively and physically.  There were moments I really wanted to slap her especially when she did exactly what they asked her NOT to do.  Kate's self esteem is a problem because it lead her into doing so many things because she couldn't believe that Henry really wanted her.  I mean I totally get it but how many times does he have to say it and show if before it clicks that he's not lying??

So many times in the book things would have gone better if she simply didn't assume, but then we wouldn't really have a story then huh?? The progress of the story was good, fast paced and really drew you in.  The ultimate betrayal at the end??!!! Yeah never saw it coming.

I purchased the other books in the series so I have no waiting period before I find out what really happens to Kate, Henry and everyone else.
 ★★★★1/2☆
Make sure to check out my review of the first book in the series Goddess Test
Happy Reading
