Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead.

Not this time.

But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey.

Her captor, John Hayden, claims it’s for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they’ve come back as Furies, intent on vengeance…on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves.

But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there…and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies.

And unless Pierce is careful, this time there’ll be no escape.

It is no secret that I abolsutely LOVED Abandon. It was my first Meg Cabot book, and she had me hooked. I was eagerly awaiting the release of Underworld and was so happy when it finally arrived.

Underworld did not dissapoint. It delivered in full force, and handed out every element that I was looking for. Suspense, thrills, romance and humour. I adored Pierce and her light-hearted, sarcastic humour, nothing changed in Underworld, if anything, I like her more! John is one of my favourite male characters, he's rough around the edges, but deep down he is very capable of loving and doing the right thing. I was always rooting for Pierce and John, so I really enjoyed seeing their love blossom throughout the novel.

Now the book isn't all hearts and rainbows, it is the Underworld after all. Meg Cabot did not skimp out on the dark, haunting suspense. She would end each chapter with a cliffhanger. "Just one more chapter" was a common phrase in my house while reading Underworld, but I couldn't stop. One more chapter turned into two, then three and four and..well, you see where I'm going with this.

The only negetive that came out of this book was that now I'm going to have to wait for book 3! The wait is already killing me, I don't know how I'm going to do it!

If your looking for a series that packs a lot of punch but also give you a romance fix, definitely pick up Abandon and Underworld
