(Age: 13+) Paranormal. Greek mythology. In this finale following Abandon (2011) and Underworld (2012), seventeen-year-old Pierce and her boyfriend John, Lord of the Underworld, face a fight on two fronts. They find themselves in the middle of a hurricane, trying to stop a corrupt developer, whose son is possessed by Thanatos, the Greek personification of death, and who threatens Earth. Meanwhile the Furies are determined to find and destroy them and the Underworld.
In order to gain maximum enjoyment and understanding of the series, the books should be read in order. Teens who have been following the series are sure to enjoy the last book as Cabot manages to find a satisfying conclusion that will leave lovers of romance happy. Others will be happy to learn more about Greek mythology and the legend of Persephone which the series is lightly woven around and will enjoy the action packed adventures and dilemmas that face Pierce and John.
