Blurb (From Goodreads):
The Underworld is real.
Spencer Perry knew it was a long shot when she started searching for a way into the Underworld, the ancient Greeks resting place for the dead. But three months ago her boyfriend died and now she’ll do anything to get him back, even make a deal with the devil himself. Only, Hades isn’t what she expected, and neither is the proposal he offers. In exchange for Micah’s resurrection, all she has to do is spend every night for the next year down below. From the very first meeting the god makes her feel things she shouldn’t, but she takes the deal anyway, knowing in the end it’ll be worth it. Except, as soon as their bargain begins, strange things start happening. People are being attacked by invisible forces, and all signs point to the God of the Underworld being responsible. Has Spencer inadvertently unleashed hell on earth?
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a YA paranormal/mythology story featuring a girl and her dead boyfriend.
Spencer was an okay character, although I had trouble believing she was quite as special as she was made out to be. She also sounded quite immature when her best argument for why her boyfriend shouldn’t be dead was that it ‘wasn’t fair’.
The storyline in this was about Spencer trying to bring her ghostly dead boyfriend back from the dead by striking a deal with the ruler of the underworld – Hadrian. I did find that the pace in the book was quite slow though, and the emergence of the love triangle was a little annoying also. I did like the book in places, and we did get the occasional entertaining moment, but mainly the book dragged, and it took me a long time to get through it.
The ending to this was okay, although things didn’t go quite as Spencer expected.
