Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible
when someone there wants you back.
Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead. Not this time.
But she’s been taken by John Hayden, lord of the Underworld, to the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey.
John claims it’s for her own safety, to protect her from the Furies who yearn for vengeance against him. But John may have reasons of his own for wanting to keep Pierce close…
And soon Pierce learns that while she might be safe from the wrath of the Furies in the Underworld, the people she loves back on earth are not. Can she convince John to release her in order to save the life of someone in her family? Or will the price he asks her to pay for her freedom turn out to be too high?

Wow I never thought I would feel this way about a Meg Cabot book but I really didn't like it. I mean it was ok but it seemed to be mostly filler. The whole 318 pages happen over two days story time and I feel like a lot of things happened but at the same time nothing happened. Now I am curious about...
Genre: Paranormal Romance*Rating* 4.0*Review shortly*We actually get to see a lot more about John Hayden and his past, including 4 members of his former crew who now reside with him in the Underworld. I think I actually liked Pierce a lot better this time around as well. This series has actually hea...
