Review of Awaken by Meg Cabot


From #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, the dark reimagining of the Persephone myth comes to a thrilling conclusion.

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.


This was a decent series.  It was an interesting take on the whole underworld myth. Book three was the last book in the series, wrapping up the story.
I was happy with the conclusion to this series. There were so many ways the story could have ended, but Meg Cabot did a good job.
I loved the romance between Pierce and John. The relationship was sweet and all consuming. Even though there were serious repercussions for being together, their love was more important. 
All the characters in the story were engaging and I wanted to know what was going to happen with all of them, not just the main characters.
Overall, this book was a good wrap up for the Abandon series.  It deserves four glittery stars.
