KATE WINTERS HAS WON IMMORTALITY.Yep, Kate did it! She's won immortality and is set to be the Queen of the Underworld. Or so she thought.
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.
Kate and Henry are now married, but that's where the pleasantries end. Henry had redeemed himself a little at the end of Goddess Test, but now he completely goes off the deep end. His issues cause a great deal of problems and situations as the plot develops. He just can't let go of the past. Trust and communication are simply not the virtues in their relationship and it begins their downfall. Kate is left fighting to salvage their lives and futures. Aside from the obvious "out of reality" aspects, their relationship is actually quite believable and could happen in real life.
The book provides a fast-paced journey through the characters trials and tribulations. I loved the banter between the different sets of characters. The quips kept the relationships between everyone from failing at times. The romance is a very small part of the equation. It keeps kindling the fiery plot the Carter methodically weaves. Everything explodes when Kate realizes she needs the one person that causes her so much pain with Henry, Persephone. I admire Kate's guts and determination, she holds her head high and pushes through. This ride keeps you guessing...and then lets you drop off a cliff at the end. Literally. Be warned, friends. This is a page turner and then drops the "cliffhanger bomb" directly on your head!
