Abandon, Meg Cabot

Anything can happen in the blink of an eye. Anything at all. One. Two. Three. Blink. A girl is laughing with friends. Suddenly, a crater splits apart the earth. Through it bursts a man in an ink black chariot forged in the deepest pits of hell, drawn by stallions with hooves of steel and eyes of flame. 

Sound familiar? This is a re-imagining of the Greek legend of Persephone. Pierce has returned from a near death experience, and she just can't seem to fit back into the world of the living. Especially since there's someone in the realm of the dead who wants her back. And he always appears when she least expects it but when she needs him most. But if she goes any further, she may find herself back in the place she fears most: the Underworld.

Ooh!! Interesting sounding plot, huh? Actually, I was really looking forward to reading this book for ages. Like, since last spring. And it pretty much met my expectations. It wasn't a great book or anything, but I enjoyed it. Sometimes I wished that Cabot would have revealed a little more of what actually happened to Pierce before the book begins, but still, an enjoyable read. And the book ends on a cliffhanger, making me want to read the next book in the series when it comes out...

Read Abandon:

  • if you like Meg Cabot
  • if you are interested in Greek myths
  • if you are interested in the myth of Persephone
  • if you like retellings of old tales in general
  • if you like dark YA romance/fantasy
304 pages.

Very Good! I would recommend this book!
