    New from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a dark, fantastical story about this world . . . and the underworld.

    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.

    • Abandon

      If you read this book my guess is that your first impression of Pierce is that she’s a bit crazy. Well, she’s not. You see she died, but only for a moment. During that moment between life and death, she paid the Underworld a visit. From that she gained a sexy stalker named John protecting her from anything that may harm her. But what did I think of it? I am a HUGE Meg Cabot fan and I was expecting a lot out of this book. Unfortunately, I found the first half of the book was a bit slow at first, I felt as if I was forcing myself to read it whereas most books I read draw me in right from the beginning. After the first half of the book the addiction to reading Abandon started to grow, I started to take it everywhere I went! I found the characters very different, but a good different! They weren’t your usual hopeless girl meets attractive boy, and that’s why Pierce and John have been really interesting to read about. From how the book finished, I must say I am looking forward to the next book to coming out in 2012! Keep up the good work Meg!

    • Unique!

      Well, firstly I should admit that I have never read a book by Meg Cabot before, so this is all new and fresh for me… so I should also admit that I seriously like this book. Just by reading the blurb of this book it had me engaged straight away, and if I’m honest the book cover also intrigued me a lot by the design and use of colour. Yes, there may be the same boy/girl relationship involved, but Meg Cabot has created the main character totally different to the usual heroines you get to know in other books. This is just by the personality that Cabot has given the main character, Pierce, who I believe is strong, confident, brave and slightly self-centered, but all these traits show throughout the book. The other main character, John, I will not say anything about, because in the book it is a mystery, so I will leave it as that. The plot to this story is engaging in its own way by how it is about life and death and the underworld. However the way that Meg Cabot has wrote this story is unique because I haven’t read another book like it. This is because throughout the book we read about different events that have happened in Pierces’ life, but we’re only given a few details. Meg Cabot leaves you like this in suspense for a while before revealing what actually happened, and to do this she takes us back to the past. This book is a must read, however in my opinion the story is unfolded slowly, but in a way in which the reader stays engaged.
