Ten agonizing months have gone by since Therese faced off against her parents’ murderer at Mount Olympus, and she suspects Thanatos's absence is meant to send her a message: go on with your life. She tries to return Pete’s affections, but when Than shows up to take her hamster’s soul, she sees him and becomes infuriated when he says he’s “been busy.” In cahoots with her new friend, Vicki, who's gotten in with the Demon Druggies at school, Therese takes a drug that simulates a near-death experience, planning to tell Than off so she can have closure and move on, but things go very, very wrong. Eventually she learns Than has been busy searching for a way to make her a god, and he’s found it, but it requires her to complete a set of impossible challenges designed by Hades, who hopes to see her fail.

Therese has been away from Than for almost a year and life hasn't been easy. Than has however been trying to find a way to make Therese a god without going against the promise he made to the God's. In the grand scheme of things Hades has agreed to help in making her a god if she completes a series of challenges that basically Therese is destined to fail.
This book picks up where book 1 left off and I have to say that I am absolutely loving this series!! I feel in love with Therese and Than in the first book and their struggle to be together. This book is a continuation of their strength together and their will to find a way to be together forever! I am anxiously waiting to read book 3!
The book was well written kept me reading! My only minor criticism is at times she was slightly too descriptive! I am already reading the third installment. As an adult reader who pre screens what her children read I feel at ease with my teen diving into her books. The characters see a rare view in regards to actions and consequences. The hero is not too perfect, nor are the villains too evil. We see the complexity of the characters and the stark realty they represent. A pleasure to read!
My 17 year old daughter convinced me to start reading the series with book 1 a couple of weeks ago. I have to say I have really enjoyed it. While it is an easy read, you have to pay attention to every characters (even those that seem minor) to fully enjoy the series. The author paints very vivid, detailed pictures, and includes even small details in every scene and still avoids overdoing it. It is well written and obvious that the author has researched the characters to make them accurate with history and myth. I have been happy to continue to buy books in the series as we finish each one. We are currently on book 4, and hope Ms. Pohler will continue the series beyond book 5.
