One of the worst books I've ever read. The writing was all over the place, the story is told in a nonsensical order, and the main characters are all boring and under-developed. I regret reading this.

Overall, not a bad retelling of a classical myth. There could be more happening for the length of the book, but I am enjoying the modern twist on the classic tale.

This book was awesome! It wasn't as good as Abandon but it was really close. Not as much happened in Underworld as in Abandon. I thought that Pierce would try to escape to save her family but John took her back himself. I was surprised about that. I did like the new characters and how I found out about John's past. I can't wait till the next book!!!!!!! Meg Cabot is a brilliant author and this is an absolutely amazing series!!!!!

I definitely liked this book, as I did Abandon. However I felt as if the plot of it was kind of like an extra long chapter from a book that should have gone on longer, versus the plot of an actual novel. It seemed like there wasn't as much happening plot-wise in this book as in Abandon, but the writing, characters and themes were really well done and it seems like a great lead up to the next book. I literally read it in 4 hours and just couldn't put it down once. I highly recommend it.

It was quick thinking and a stroke of luck that let Pierce Oliviera escape the Underworld after her untimely demise. She definitely never expected to be back there again, but that's exactly where she found herself two years later and with her original captor, John Hayden, in "Underworld", sequel to "Abandon".

This time it's for her protection from the dead souls known as Furies, who seem bent on destroying her. However, is it really Pierce they're after, or the Underworld's ruler? What will these Furies do if they can't get to Pierce herself? And if she's safe from the Furies with John, what other dangers might be lurking in the shadows?
