Waiting on Wednesday
December 21, 2011
Underworld
by Meg Cabot
Release Date: May 28, 2012
Published by: Point (Scholastic)



From #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, the dark reimagining of the Persephone myth begun in ABANDON continues … into the Underworld.


Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead.


Not this time.


But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey.


Her captor, John Hayden, claims it’s for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they’ve come back as Furies, intent on vengeance . . . on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves.


But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there . . . and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies.


And unless Pierce is careful, this time there’ll be no escape.
I had you at “Meg Cabot” didn’t I? Meg Cabot + reimagining of Persephone? WIN! I liked the way Meg made the story her own in Abandon so I am really looking forward to seeing where she goes in this one. May seems oh so far away!!!
