I just finished this book yesterday night and the ending took my breath away. This is a novel that is definitely worth reading, plus it's incorporated with the myth of Persephone and Hades(yay). When I first read about this book I was a bit skeptical about Hades, being with the main character because of his persona in Greek mythology, but this book really took me by surprise and made it very enjoyable to read. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.
