Summary: Kate Winters back from her forced summer holiday as the new Queen of the Underworld, has found her husband, Henry to be very distant. She doesn’t understand why he is acting like that when she thought they were thawing the ice and loved each other. What gives? But now that Kate is in the Underworld and everywhere there are reminders of Henry’s first wife, Persephone. Is she the wedge between them? Will Kate have to fight for her husband’s love? Determined to do what’s right despite her misgivings for Henry’s secretiveness, she proceeds to the coronation and right smack in the middle of it Chronos makes an appearance and stops the ceremony cold. Henry dashes off to fight and gets abducted… and now Kate will have to fight for Henry in more ways than one!
Why I started this book:
Because the first book was epic!
- Oh the angst! This novel is full of it and I love it. Love it. LOVE IT. Not only does Kate have feelings of insecurity and doubt, but misunderstandings abound between her and Henry. They each feel they know what the other is feeling and that causes problems. It might have been resolved faster had Henry’s abduction not gotten in the way, but that was the point. Kate waffles about how she’s going to deal with Henry’s love for Persephone.
- There seems to be bit of a love triangle and I’m not referring to the Kate/Henry/Persephone triangle, but another one. What I like best about it is that the second guy who wants to be with Kate hasn’t got a chance though he keeps trying to persuade her by telling her Henry loves Persephone and the like. Kate won’t cheat on Henry. (If you know your Greek mythology a lot of the gods and goddesses cheat, all the time… apparently Hades and Hera never did though.)
- I like that Kate rescues Henry and not the other way around. Girl power! Rah! Rah! Rah!
- When Kate and Henry do talk? Swoon! Also Henry’s super duper uber protectiveness at the end… *grin*
- The evil cliffhanger. Ahh!
