Meg Cabot
304 pages

New from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a dark, fantastical story about this world . . . and the underworld.

Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.

Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.

In the end, I was really disappointed with this one. I had wanted to get for some time, was in love with the cover and the whole idea of this story, but unfortunately it just kind of fell out to me. I have read other books by Meg Cabot and loved them. I loved the Princess Diaries in middle school and I loved Insatiable.

I tried to like this one, but honestly, it was kind of confusing. It would start out with either the past or present and sometimes abruptly jump to the other and then back again. It felt jumbled - rushed and forced in some places and then slow in others. In this sense, it wasn't consistent.

What I give this book:

I wanted to like it too. I will probably still get the next book though just to see what happens. Maybe that one will be better.
