NOW IT'S KATE'S TURN.
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 that 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 suceeds, she'll become Henry's future bride and a goddess.
IF SHE FAILS...
- It's based on Greek mythology, and the idea of the story itself is charming.
- Our heroine is not a wimpy, weak girl; she's loaded with spunk and a strong sense of justice, although sometimes she may think of others too much and blames herself for whatever bad things that happen.
- The author's writing has a great flow and the story is suitably paced. I felt myself skimming through the pages without any sense of time.
- I admired the gorgeous cover and the beautiful font choice more than once.
