Week 30 Reviews: Abandon, Underworld, Awaken

From Goodreads:
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.

From Goodreads:
Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

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.

From Goodreads:
Death has her in his clutches. She doesn't want him to let go.

Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera knew by accepting the love of John Hayden, she'd be forced to live forever in the one place she's always dreaded most: the Underworld. The sacrifice seemed worth it, though, because it meant she could be with the boy she loves.

But now her happiness — and safety — are threatened, all because the Furies have discovered that John has broken one of their strictest rules: He revived a human soul.

If the balance between life and death isn't fixed, both the Underworld and Pierce's home back on earth will be wiped away. But there's only one way to restore order. Someone has to die.

My first review of AbandonUnderworld
My Review:
Oh, reading these books all together, with the newness of Awaken, was just the best! It's hard to describe, but these books just were seamless, and I was just immersed in this world for that time, and it was just so all-encompassing and wonderful!

Abandon and Underworld were just as good as the fist times I read them, and yeah, since I have read and reviewed them before, mostly what I want to talk about is Awaken! Which had a lot going on! Like John meeting her parents! And the whole "I'd marry her if she'd let me" thing!

I really enjoyed having Alex in Awaken, because he plays a role that just got larger and larger, and I just loved reading about that! And then the prison riot distraction! That was really awesome, what they came up with!

Awaken was the book where Pierce became the person she's been reaching for since the first book, strong and confident, and stepping up into the leadership role while John was incapacitated! And she used the diamond and the whip together to beat the furies! That was so awesome!

This was just a really an amazing series, I enjoyed them really so much, and now I can't wait for her next YA book and/or series!
