New from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a dark, fantastical story about this world . . . and the underworld.
Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.
But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.
Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.
I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed Abandoned. I loved how the story fed from Dante's Inferno and Divine Comedy. The story line kept me enthralled. They book was full of mystery and suspense, not to mention just the right amount of romance. I found myself rooting for John and Pierce to fall in love. I would like to have read more on John's history and gotten to know him a little better. The cliffhangers at the end have left me anxious for the next book in the series. I can hardly wait!
I give it 5 stars.
