Haden Lord, the disgraced prince of the Underrealm, has been sent to the mortal world to entice a girl into returning with him to the land of the dead. Posing as a student at Olympus Hills High—a haven for children of the rich and famous—Haden must single out the one girl rumored to be able to restore immortality to his race.
Daphne Raines has dreams much bigger than her tiny southern Utah town, so when her rock star dad suddenly reappears, offering her full tuition to Olympus Hills High’s prestigious music program, she sees an opportunity to catch the break she needs to make it as a singer. But upon moving into her estranged father’s mansion in California, and attending her glamorous new school, Daphne soon realizes she isn’t the only student in Olympus who doesn’t quite belong.
Haden and Daphne—destined for each other—know nothing of the true stakes their fated courtship entails. As war between the gods brews, the teenagers’ lives collide. But Daphne won’t be wooed easily and when it seems their prophesied link could happen, Haden realizes something he never intended—he’s fallen in love. Now to save themselves, Haden and Daphne must rewrite their destinies. But as their destinies change, so do the fates of both their worlds.
This was a refreshing read, i devoured in two days it was that good. I liked the way the dual point of view was handled it was very easy to tell who point of view you were reading as you went from chapter to chapter. I like the fact that you can tell haden not from our world by all the things he has to learn while he on his quest to bring daphine back to the underrealm. I was invested in what was going to happen, i like the the mythology that flowed through out the story, kind of felt like i was learning something at the same time i was reading this wonderful adventure fantasy. Great book well worth the time to read.
