Synopsis:  It's always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future bride, and a goddess.

             A cute contemporary Greek mythology that’s very addicting. I love the story and I love how Aimee could be able to mix in the Greek mythology stuff and I could say its epic. The writing is fantastic, it’s easy to grasp and get addictive to it. Although some thoughts in the story could easily be figured out there are still unexpected twists that surprised me.
             Love the romance in it. It has soft take to it that gradually I’ve come to love. It’s an honest and undemanding one. Well since Henry is Hades, I was surprised to find him very kind and understanding. I was used to the idea that Hades is so cruel and cunning among the Greek Gods.
             I love Kate with her undying determination to fight for her will for the people she love and care about. And I really agree that she deserve the prize for what she’s fighting for. And also the other characters are great, even though they played a minor role, still their role is an element to complete this story.
            The book is stunningly beautiful, but even though it leaves me with some queries, I’d still love to read the rest of the series to answer some questions tugging inside of me.
