Kate Winters has won immortality.But if she wants a life in the Underworld with Henry, she’ll have to fight for it.
Everything he does is like a slap in the face to poor Kate--and yet somehow she manages to put up with it. She tries her best to make it work and he keeps pushing her away. Kate's mother basically uses her for most of the book. The only reason she gave birth to her only to become Persephone's replacement, and to keep Henry alive. And whenever Kate thinks about confronting her mother about it she thinks of her mom dying from cancer. The thing is her mother CAN'T die from cancer and she never could because she was immortal, so I didn’t understand why Kate kept bringing it up all the time. Things get even worse once Persephone comes into the picture, Henry's first love who he spent eons mourning over because she dumped him and ran off with Adonis.
When Kate wasn't worrying constantly whether Henry loved her or not (which takes up whole chapters of the book), I thought her character was strong and engaging to read about. I loved her courage in this book. And the ending, oh the ending. It's one of the biggest cliffhangers I've read so far this year! It was shocking and completely unexpected. With that said, I will be patiently waiting for book 3! :)
