Underworld (Abandon Trilogy Series #2) by Meg Cabot


From #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, the dark reimagining of the Persephone myth begun in ABANDON continues ... into the Underworld.

Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn't dead.

Not this time.

But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey.

Her captor, John Hayden, claims it's for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they've come back as Furies, intent on vengeance . . . on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves.

But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there . . . and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies.

I have been reading Meg Cabot novels ever since I started reading books, and I'm a huge fan of hers. When I found out that she was writing a Greek mythology-themed series, I was really excited to read the whole trilogy. Abandon was amazing but somehow the sequel didn't live up to my expectations. The plot was a bit messy. Everything was happening so fast in the beginning and I had a hard time trying to remember everything that went down in Abandon (maybe that was my mistake, I should have reread it, so I really recommend it rereading Abandon!). But I enjoyed the chapters that took place in the Underworld and all scenes that had John in it (obviously!). Pierce was so annoying! She never knew what she wanted: stay in the Underworld or go back to her ordinary life. Which, of course, resulted in many fights with her boyfriend. John was by far the best character. He is different than most love interests. He is tough yet sweet and sometimes he could be a bit mean to Pierce (which I thoroughly enjoyed!). The new characters gave Underworld a new side and I loved them! It made the novel a lot more enjoyable. Certainly Cabot could have done a better job with this novel but I really can't say that I didn't enjoy it. I am a sucker for Greek mythology and the Persephone myth is a favorite of mine. One thing that I really can say about this novel though, is that it isn't in any way boring. It was an enjoyable read and I loved the ending. After reading the synopsis for the next one, I'm really looking forward to the third installment!

If I had the time I would have read this book straight through, it was that good! I loved the take on the Fury legend and the writing was fantastic.

Pierce Oliviera has been dead before. To her luck, it wasn’t permanent. This time, it is. After she looked death in the eye and went right when he said left, the nightmares haven’t been able to go away. It’s not that she’s having nightmares of her brush with death, oh no. She’s having nightmares of him: John Hayden, lord of the underworld, also known as the man who resurrected her, and her boyfriend. Though, if Pierce is being honest, their status is more ‘it’s complicated’ than just ‘boyfriend and girlfriend’. John tells her that it’s safer for her to stay in the underworld, where her Furry-possessed grandmother can’t get to her to kill her…again. As if getting told that by her eating breakfast, she was now forced to stay in the underworld forever wasn’t enough, Pierce receives a vision that her cousin, Alex, was in trouble. Even though she and John were fighting slightly, she turns to him for help. She makes a deal: she’d agree to stay with him – at least, rethink the whole marriage thing – if he took her with him to Earth to help Alex from doing something stupid that gets him locked in a coffin. When they arrive, John allows Pierce to say goodbye to her family – something she wasn’t able to do before. She leaves a note instead of speaking to them. They would have no idea she had been there until they find the note. Aided by friends of the underworld, Mr. Liu and Frank, they are able to get to Alex before anything bad happens to him. It takes much persuasion to convince Alex to listen and go with them. Nearing the book’s end, when they think they’re home free, something happens to Alex. What happened? You’ll have to read and find out.

Excellent second book in the Abandon series. This story quickly draws you in. The interactions between Pierce and John are very engaging. I really liked getting to know more of John's background, and finding out what makes him tick. The introduction of new characters brings out exciting dimensions to the story. I'll be waiting axiously for the finally book Awaken to arrive.
