EVERY GIRL who has taken the test has DIED.

Now it's KATE'S TURN.

It’s always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate’s going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won’t live past the fall.

Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he’ll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.

Kate is sure he’s crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she’ll become Henry’s future bride, and a goddess.

If she fails...


From the first page on, I couldn't seem to be able to stop reading. First, I just LOVED the cover. It was mysterious yet simple, but all the same, it looked amazing-like something I'd definitely pick up and buy at a bookstore. And after seeing such an amazing cover, I expected even more from the author. And this book did not disappoint me.

Spellbinding and intriguing, this book is full of unexpected twists and turns that even you won't be able to predict. Kate's mother is dying, and her last wish is to move back to Eden, her childhood home. But suddenly, mysterious things happen, and a girl nearly dies-but lives. Henry, who we later find out is Hades, saves her in exchange for a deal with Kate-that she will take part in a test that can either kill her-or save her and turn her into a goddess-and Henry's Queen.

But the problem is, all of the other girls have been poisoned-or killed. And no one knows who it is and can't identify the person. And beyond all that, will Kate ever compare to Persephone (Henry's deceased wife) in Henry's mind? Or will Henry never learn to love her...ever?
