Kate is about to be commit herself fully to Henry and become the Queen of the Underworld, when their ceremony is disrupted. The much diminished Greek gods, one who is Kate's mother and the other who is about to become her husband, are under attack by a very old foe, the Titan Cronus who wants to free himself from his prison. Kate's old nemesis, Calliope, who is obsessively in love with Henry, is aiding Cronus, despite the fact that if the Titan escapes, humanity will be destroyed and the gods crushed. When several of the gods are taken prisoner, including Kate's beloved Henry, Kate and a small band of rescuers, including Henry's former wife Persephone, journey through the Underworld to recover the captives.
While credit has to be given to Kate for her brave pursuit of her immortal boyfriend despite what appears to be hopeless odds against their success, it's hard to like her while she whines incessantly about how Henry will never return the intensity of her affection for him. And Kate can whine for pages while the author spares a few sentences about how the group is trying to save the world. Sadly, the moaning seriously detracts from some of Kate's great qualities, such as her courage and selflessness. The author also has an interesting vision of the landscape of Hades and the relation of the ancient gods to the modern world, which Kate could be a better witness to, if she wasn't so focused on how Henry won't give her any PDA. Would be a more enjoyable romance adventure if the author could invert the number of words so more time is spent dealing with how to avert the apocalypse and Kate's determination versus Kate's constant "he loves me not" complaints about her boyfriend.
Kate Winters has won immortality.
