“When something horrible happens, it's human nature to want to blame it on someone. We want someone to be held accountable, even though sometimes things just happen.”
“What did that mean? Where could it go? He was a death diety. I was a high school senior.”
“And eternity is a long time. So if you have to spend it with someone I could see wanting to spend it with someone impossible...but interesting....”
SummaryAdd a Summary
Back of the book:
Pierce knows what it's like to die, because she's done it before. 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 further, she may just find herself back in the one place she fears: the Underworld.
The myth of Persephone...darkly reimagined.
When the main character Pierce Oliviera suffers a near death experience, she sees what awaits everyone in the afterlife: a cavern, two boats, and a nineteen-year-old death deity named John Hayden. After her traumatic experience, she is expelled from her private school and moves to Isla Huesos with her mom for a new start. What happened to her in the Underworld and what caused her to be expelled is slowly revealed through a series of flashbacks.
