Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

Bookish Details:
Series: Abandon Trilogy #1
Pages: 296 (Paperback)
Publisher: Point
Release Date: 26th April 2011


Goodreads Summary:

Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.

Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away... especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld
.

My Review:
Pierce knows what its like to die. When she was fifteen, Pierce drowned in a swimming pool and ended up in the place that still haunts her, the Underworld. In a new town with a fresh start, will her past catch up to her?

I've loved reading Meg Cabot's books for years so I was pretty sure I was going to love Abandon and I wasn't wrong. I loved the dark re-telling of The Myth of Persephone, and I really liked the story going from Pierce's present to her past.

The relationship between Pierce and John is quite dark and I liked that throughout the book you are kept guessing as to what has gone on between them in the past.

I can't wait for the sequel due out next year! Lovers of fantasy/romance novels will love this, as will fans of Meg.

Royal Rating:
