Death has her in his grasp. And he's gorgeous.
Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn't dead. Not this time. But she's been taken by John Hayden, Lord of the Underworld, to the place between heaven and hell where spirits gather before their final journey. John claims it's to protect her from the Furies, who are hell-bent on vengeance against him. But could he have other reasons for keeping Pierce close? When she learns that the people she loves back home are in mortal danger, can she convince John to release her to save them - or will the price he asks for her freedom prove too high?
Underworld is the second heart-stopping book in Meg Cabot's Abandon series.

Mysterious and intriguing and yet hauntingly beautiful at the same time . . . I love the way Meg has taken the Hades and Persephone story and actually made it unique and different.

[Cabot] manages to write a deep, dramatic story and still weave it with a certain level of wittiness, which grips even the most serious reader.
Meg Cabot's Abandon is similar to other dark fiction books such as the Twilight series. Although fans of the author will be surprised at how different this tale of the underworld is from the stories of Princess Mia, they will not be disappointed.
