Then, in the midst of Kate's coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.
As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.
Henry's first wife, Persephone.
My Review: Six months away, and it's time for Kate to return to the Palace. She will be crowned queen and rule by Henry's side as Queen of the Underworld. The day is supposed to go just fine, but it is far from fine. She arrives and Henry isn't around he is off doing something. Kate enters the Underworld and has a vision. Already she has a gift and is told about that a bit later. Ava shows Kate her new room and her closet. Which is full of clothes that she likes with just a few fancy dresses. Kate however knows that something is wrong. Henry still hasn't arrive, but when he does he is hurt. Kate wonders what happens but Henry won't say everything. Kate is worried Henry doesn't have any feelings for her, but he does. He just sucks at showing it. Kate doesn't get to learn about alot of things before it's time for the coronation. The ceremony begins, but within five minutes the window breaks and shards of glass head for the couple. Henry and his brothers prepare to fight whatever is coming at them, while Kate and Ava head for the exit. Suddenly a fog comes after them, Kate moves Ava out of the way and gets hit herself. That is when everyone tells her what's going on. Calliope is mad at Kate and is going after everyone. She has made a plan with the one thing that can kill them. King of the Titans. Kate's mother explains about the story of how they came and how they once defeated the Titans before. Soon after Kate has another vision. In the vision Calliope has Henry and his brothers, each one of them is hurt. Calliope is making a plan and talking with the King about finishing off the guys and that the King better listen. Calliope is the only one who can get him out. Kate tells her mother of the vision and she and Sophia runs off. Kate hates being left behind and not knowing everything that goes on. She decides she is going into the underworld to find and save Henry. Days pass by and soon enough they find Persephone. They get her to help them find and save Henry, and the others. Once they get to where he is, Ava, James and Persephone go in first. While waiting Kate meets Irene, she is the girl who died before Kate showed up. She was also killed, but if it hadn't happen she would have been Henry's current wife. They talk quickly, and Kate soon goes to join the others. She just can't wait and before she goes, she promises to return and spend time with Irene. Kate finds Persephone talking with Calliope, who soon finds her. Things happen and short story is Kate beats Calliope and they all end up back at the Palace. Everyone is now safe and home, with Calliope set in a room as a prisoner. Now these next few chapters things get crazy. In the beginning of the book Kate and Henry barley say anything to each other let alone kiss. So now at the end Kate and Henry have this huge fight. Well the fight was mostly Kate yelling and Henry barley saying a word. Eventually though things between them get better. Much better, where they both are starting to be a true married couple, and they are both finally happy. I'll stop there, I would keep going, but the ending has so much going on that I would spoil the whole thing! I will say that I was beyond mad that the third book is NOT out yet! I need the next book like yesterday. The very last chapter will have you going crazy at what happens.
