Underworld


Pierce was taken to the underworld by John because that is the only place she will be safe from furies. John is able to protect and be by her side anytime if she were to be in trouble. She was shocked that her grandmother tried to hurt her and she did not like the way she had to leave. She wants a chance to say goodbye to her mom and at least let her know she was safe but John insisted that she stays in the underworld.

John tried to make his home good for her and provided her with food and clothes. He told her to not wander off anywhere and just stay in the mansion. Pierce couldn't help her curiosity in wondering how did he prepare the clothes and how food magically appear on the table. She waited for the table to be cleared and there was a boy who came in and did the work. She trailed him and ended in a place like a kitchen and there were quite a few people working in there. She was shocked because she thought she was all alone with John but there were other people. John was furious that she found out because there were his ship crew members from his past. John was not ready to tell her his past for he fears that she will leave him. Pierce still insisted to go back Isla Huesos because her phone was working and she received a terrifying message.

Underworld by Meg Cabot  is the sequel to Abandon where it continues about Pierce and John's story. This time Pierce will find out more about John, save a family member and also learn how to defeat the furies. A lot happens in this second book and this book tops off the first because I treat that book as an introductory to the main characters. This book gives some answers to the questions that are in book one and it's definitely more thrilling knowing someone is in danger and you have to do something about it.

I'm really satisfied with this book. This is because I'm really interested in the John Hayden character more than Pierce, the mystery about him that the author prepared in the first book is revealed here. I have to say the heroine is a damsel in distress which think not herself, kinda annoying and adorable at the same time. I adore Pierce but I think she quite a pain in the ass to John in terms of keeping her safe. But without a character like that the story would not be entertaining. I have always loved how characters' behavior are important in a story line because it's that element that builds up the story. I might be wrong about this but it's how I feel.  I am so looking forward to the third and final book and hopefully there will be a happily ever after for our dear Pierce and John. Two people from two different worlds, will they be together? One is alive and one is the dead will it possible? I'm devastated that I have to wait for the last book till next year, damn trilogies =(.
