*Book was provided by publisher for honest review*
Kate Winters has won immortality.

But if she wants a life in the Underworld with Henry, 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.

What I thought

I was one of those that really liked the first book. I tend to get excited over Greek Mythology stories. The second book in this series, for me, was just okay. I still enjoyed the story, but I didn't feel as connected to Kate as I did in the first book.

The story is interesting though. There is some major things happening in this one. Kate has learned she's immortal... but there is something out there than can snuff her out, along with the rest of the Gods she thought were untouchable. I liked the story of Cronus. He's not a guy you hear about very often, if at all. The preparations and everything the characters went through were interesting for me.

What drug it down, though, was Kate and Henry. I knew things wouldn't be amazing and perfect when she got back. It is a book after all, what would it be without conflict? But I wanted to smack them both upside the head a few times. Neither talked to the other. Kate was always waiting for Henry to come to her and she was always subtly trying to get out of him how he felt about her. Mostly, I wanted her to woman up a bit. Which she did, at the end.

I will be reading the next one. The ending for this holds a lot of promise, especially for the things that annoyed me. I'm hoping that as Kate and Henry learn to be husband and wife as well as King and Queen of the Dead, that the majority of the conflict between the two is over.

Great review! It's often that the 2nd book is not as good as the first. I haven't read the first yet but I really plan too since I love mythology and I really should have read it by now >.<
