Goodreads Summary:


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.

My Feelings:

I was super excited when Mindy at Magical Urban Fantasy Reads told me I had won her giveaway for this.  But then I realized I can't start reading a series in the middle so to speak, so I went and grabbed the first book.  You can check out my review of the first book here.

I feel like Kate has grown a lot since the first book, The Goddess Test, and is trying to cope with realizing everyone isn't what they seem.  At first, I didn't really like Kate because she was so whiny(yes I know she was going through some tough stuff) and wanted to blame herself for everything.  So I obviously drifted more toward Henry, the dark brooding handsome god that just didn't want to be lonely anymore.  

But in this book, I am totally on Kate's side!  I feel like she is  really put through hell proving her love to Henry, as well as risking her life to save those she cares for in her "family".  She still has those moments where she feels sorry for herself, but Kate has grown much more as a woman and I am so proud of the things she accomplishes in this book. Kate exhibits many qualities that shows us she is suited for the task she undertakes.  She is fiercely loyal, no matter what the outcome.  
Henry, ahh Henry!  Why do you make me so mad that I want to throw you in the river?  I love Henry, I really do.  He is my favorite of all the greek gods and goddesses, but in this book he just really ticks me off!
I felt like he was just a jerk in this book, even though he probably wasn't wanting to be, and not thinking about Kate's feelings at all.  He was so nice and sweet in the first book and in this one, I am like "Whoa!" Is this the same guy?  

And then we get to meet the dreaded Persephone.

Yeah, I am still reeling from her attitude towards Kate.  If I were Kate, I would just poked her in the eyes.  That would have made me feel much better.  Yeah that might be childish, so what?  
I cried many times in this story, partially due to this little love triangle between Henry, Kate and Persephone but the plot was phenomenon!

Prepare yourself; there is a huge cliffhanger at the end and I am impatiently waiting for the next book.  *drums my fingers on the desk*

I just had to give this five hearts!
