I am super excited for this book! I can't believe we have to wait all the way until May for it to come out. When I read the summary for the first book (The Shadow Prince) it looked really good and I wasn't disappointed. It's full of action and romance twisted into a classic greek myth. I could barely put it down! If you haven't read this series you should stop reading this right now and go buy it. I would reccommend this series to anyone who likes greek mythology because it uses myths in a kind of modern settinbg. I literally can not wait for The Eternity Key to come out!!!

4.4 STARS - REVIEW: The crap got real in this second installment to the Into the Dark Series. It was hitting the fan... big time. With the stress the group faces back in Olympus Hills once again with the hunt for the key, Haden stewing over his feelings, the Skylords and the other figure wreck mayhem and havoc on their plans, I felt shoved into a pressure cooker like a ham on Sunday. Let's start with Haden and everything he's dealing with. Visions of the Genie from Aladdin saying, "Tell Her the TRUTH!" kept dancing through my mind. Honestly, I got how he felt, but it seemed like overkill to drag it out. Most of the time, I sat biting my nails or wanting to smack the characters over the head with their own book. As you all know, I deeply value emotional response from a novel.... unless it is just really written badly. Then I say, UGH. Do not fret, this book was very well written, with lovely characters and tense scenes. Daphne is still written with a adolescent point of view (which is good as she is still young) but we see some growth, especially towards the end of the book. She starts to see things from others' points of view and learns that she needs for forgive others, even for her own sake. There were some scenes I felt dragged on a bit, a few story threads I felt neglected, but overall I was yet again impressed by the writing. I saw something coming along the way, and wished I could have chanted, "I KNEW IT!!" with someone when it came to pass. No spoilers, but you'll probably figure it out too. Bree has a knack of piling on the "oh no" moments at the tail end of her books. The last chapter had me shrieking. Seriously gave me a heart attack. NO PEAKING people, you have to read the whole thing! So congratulations to Bree on another well done novel! Can't wait for book three!

**I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review** 4 solid stars! When Haden Lord chose love and honor over duty – he chose to spare the life of Daphne Raines, who is unlike and Boon, or prize the Champion of the Underworld, has every attempted to claim until now. She is the Cypher – the only person that can find and retrieve the Key of Hades. It is supposed to be used by the Underworld to create a literal Hell on earth, allowing the soul sucking Keres behind to terrorize everyone. So along with his ½ brother Garrick, his best friend Dax, as well as Daphne, her estranged father Joe, her best friend Tobin, and her enemy turned friend Lexie, they will embark on a mission to lock the gates of the Underworld for good. But what will be the cost…Daphne’s literal heart and soul, Haden’s love for Daphne, or something worse…? Together, they will attempt the impossible or fail and succumb to the plans of the Underworld and Haden’s father? Let me start by saying I was SO excited to see this book available as an ARC – I loved the first book, and was not (too) disappointed with this next chapter in Daphne and Haden’s lives. I thought the twist at the end was just wicked and wonderful, but somewhere in the middle I have to admit I got a little tripped up and confused in some of the middle parts with the explanation of Persephone and Orpheus and their story – I loved getting the history, but some parts were harder to understand than others. I thought that the drawn out sparks between Daphne and Haden were great…they’d be just on the brink, and be pulled back – over and over again! There were so many twists and turns just within the last few chapters and the cliffhanger…you’ll want to get through the Underworld yourself, just to get some answers! Loving it – can’t wait to see what happens next!

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Egmont USA, and NetGalley.) “We shouldn’t be singing warm-up notes when our time to find the Key is wasting away, but she is so stuck on her plan for her future that I am afraid she doesn’t realise that particular future may never come.” This was a good YA mythology/fantasy sequel, and boy did these kids get themselves in a pickle! Daphne and the crew continued to make some dodgy decisions in this story, but they did at least seem focused on what it was they were hoping to achieve! I thought that Daphne was rather harsh on her father though, he may not have been father-of-the-year material, but it was obvious that he loved her. “No, Joe. I’m done. I don’t want your apologies. I don’t want the Vespa. I don’t want the lead in your play – I’m quitting! And I don’t want to live with you anymore.” The storyline in this revolved around, you guessed it; finding the Eternity Key, and the compass, and a couple of other things, whilst trying to evade their enemies who also wanted the same artefacts but for different uses. “My first thought is that we should try to run, but then I realise that with Terresa by the door and Calix by the windows, they’ve got all the exits covered. We’re basically trapped.” There was some romance in this story, but not a lot, and we still didn’t get a real romantic relationship forming in this story between Daphne and Haden. We got a bit of wondering, but nothing concrete. “You need to tell her.” I raise an eyebrow noncommittal, “Huh?” “That you’re in love with her, you idiot.” The ending to this was very busy, and these kids just kept getting into worse and worse situations. This ultimately left us with a big cliff-hanger, so we’ll all be waiting for that third book to come out! 7 out of 10

Daphne and the other students realize they must find the Key of Hades to save the world from the Keres. The key must be found before the spring equinox and the tension is rising. To top it off some of the Skylords have invaded the school at Olympus Hills and there is a possible trader in the mix of students that were trusted. Haden is struggling with his feelings toward Daphne and his duty to collect her to the underworld.  Daphne is coming to terms with her abilities but is having a hard time with her relationship with her father and her old friends. She is fighting an uphill battle and you would think the pressure she puts on herself would change her but she still has retains an innate goodness. Meanwhile, Haden and his group are having some problems dealing with their new statuses.  Romance, action and the feeling that the clock is ticking down creates magnetic pull for the reader only to leave you with a cliffhanger, making you want to read on. Written for the younger reader or young reader at heart. I really enjoyed The Eternity Key but I was recommend reading The Shadow Prince before jumping into this series. I received this ARC Uncorrected E-Proof of The Eternity Key from Egmont USA in exchange for a honest review.
