Welcome to the Kingdom of Hades, where even its prodigal princess sleeps lightly.
After fighting Soul Stealers in Detroit, Khara hoped to return home to find answers in her father's realm. But the land of the dead offers little information, and far too much tragedy. Now cut off from her brothers, and left only with her dark and unreliable companion Oz, Khara must navigate the centuries-old webs of deceit and betrayal, all while eluding the Underworld's most depraved inhabitant. But she soon finds an unexpected ally in her adopted sister Persephone. Together, they endeavor to right a terrible wrong. And as Khara soon discovers, there's more riding on her success than she ever thought possible.

I rather liked "unborn"- first in the series, so I expected that the second would be worth the bother. The heroine in first was rather incapable and for somebody who lived for centuries rather... oh well, I was thinking that since she was kept in isolation in a way, that explains her actions and her overly obvious pride and belief in her worth being above others. In this second instalment she just went demented. She doesn't think, even though keeps on thinking herself smart, she barks at everybody about her for no reason whatsoever other than feeling that she has right to boss everybody around. I was hoping for some development of her into a more grown up as she could have widen her horizons, but instead was dragged through first half of the book nothingness of her walking here and there, evaluating her "feelings", being nasty to everybody who said "no" to her. I have no idea what this one is about. She behaves like 3 year old. BAD. I nearly finished it. Nearly. Just can not take the last hour.
Will re-listen to Seanan McGuire's October Daye series to improve my mood.
To differentiate the character yes, but while in first book I found her belligerent tone fitting, I am afraid that by book two it only made me want to strangle the lead. It fits with the character alas, but made me want to kill Khara. I think she is supposed to be heroine and I am supposed to cheer her on or something, but I just want somebody to kill her.
I might not be the right person for this book. Too much nothingness. If you are a philosophical teenager you might like this self-righteous heroine who is rather incapable, hence my two stars for overall. Every story can find a fan. I hope.
