KATE WINTERS HAS WON IMMORTALITY.
BUT IF SHE WANTS A LIFE WITH HENRY IN THE UNDERWORLD, SHE’LL HAVE TO FIGHT FOR IT.
Becoming immortal wasn’t supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she’s as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he’s becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate’s coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.
As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of
Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one
person who is the greatest threat to her future.
Henry’s first wife, Persephone.
Emotional: It is interesting to finally meet the girl that broke Henry's heart. Persephone is beautiful but stuck on herself, though she does have a moment when she shows she can be compassionate, if she chooses to be. Kate is so sad and cries much of the book, which broke my heart. She wants Henry to show that he loves her for who she is and not what she represents, which is the replacement for Persephone. He of course being unable to express himself only makes matters worse and may just lose Kate forever in the process. She feels like she really had no choice that she was made only so Henry would not fade. But what she doesn't realize is that she does have a choice and she doesn't have to commit herself to this life. Yet, her heart wants Henry and he needs to get with the program and show this girl some love. Now, on the night that she is to become his Queen, she has her doubts and questions her decision but just as she is about to give her answer, the ceremony is stopped when a strange force attempts to kill Kate. Everyone knows who is responsible, except her and they all rush to stop it before it's too late. Not wanting to stand by as everyone she loves risks their lives to save humanity; she decides to take matters into her own hands to get back the man she loves. This book has more emotional turmoil between Kate and Henry than anything else because they are both too stubborn to see what's right there. In addition to this, the conflict between the Titan, and Calliope, who is still bitter about her punishment and decides to get majorly devious to get what she desires. The writing invokes sympathy for Kate, who still is unsure where she fits in her new world and this is mostly what I felt while reading this, her sadness.Kate just can't catch a break, there is always some problem getting the way of her relationship with Henry.The ending is shocking and I look forward to see how that is going to work out. Overall, a good read about honesty, trust, love, hate and betrayal.
