It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.
This is one of those books that when the ending comes you jump back and look around then turn through the pages again because you totally did not see all that coming. Truly a YA book that will be successful. As a reviewer there are some books that I read and feel like I need to post a warning or don't feel comfortable sharing with the youth I know...Not this one. I'll shout it from the rooftop. Not only is this book literarily amazing (like my new word) it's not full of filth as some others have. While there are some issues that are in today's society it's what I would totally rate as PG.
Kate is a character every woman or girl will relate to and while she has to choose between two equally amazing men. Perhaps she can have them both? I rooted for Henry from the beginning aka Hades. Love this character. As you get to know him with Kate you will as well. I'm so glad that this is a series cause I fell for all these characters.
