Their character mature over time. They have an ability to think beyond themselves. They are relatable; even as an adult, we can empathize with their action, speech, and behavior.
Then there is what I'd like to call extremely YA fiction. That which is purely intended for a young audience, that which is written purely for entertainment, and with no thoughts or aspirations to a higher area of literature. That's why I did not give this book a 1.
It may be immature, the quality of writing is purely aimed towards a very young teenaged readers who may just want something light and fun to read, and a character who acts and speaks like they do. That's why it rated a higher rating than I would originally give a poorly written book.
This book is purely intended as entertainment. It makes no aspirations towards anything higher. It is brain floss, a beach reach, brain candy, whatever you like to call it. And thr powerful message sent to young girls? Marry young. Have babies. Hopefully not demon ones. Screw education. Goddamn this book. Something about crashing ships and killing more Furies and John Hayden dying and Pierce and her group of cronies including the irrepressibly annoying Alex and Kayla off to save Isla Huesos frorm the birds.
The good: I laughed at least once every page. The bad: The characters, their actions, their speech. Liu and Mr. The tremendous age-old wisdom of adolescence.
Even those who have lived for hundreds of years in the Underworld still have an adolescent mindset, it seems. Frank and Henry hasn't aged a day in mental years. They're just as mature as Pierce. Which is rather bad, considering Pierce has the mental maturity and thought process of her own age.
She is so very adolescent. Her powers of thought, her skill with words are legendary. As are her action scenes. Then I yanked on it as hard as I could, so it was more like the grip of a boa constrictor than a muffler. God, John is hot. Damn, John is hot. I love him sooooooooooo much but I can't tell him. You, I wanted to say.
I like you. I love you. Pierce repeats that phrase In triplets! Always in triplets! Priorities, girlfriend. The Furies and Thanatos are out to kill you, stop fucking mooning over your love for 5 seconds. The writing is utterly laughable. The overly dramatic imagery, the battle scenes Battle scene?! In the name of love "John's gaze met mine and held it. Around us was chaos — the shrieking of the increasingly agitated birds overhead, coupled with the shrieks of the Furies as they battled But there was a stillness within John and myself that, now that we were truly back together, no amount of external mayhem could disturb.

From start to finish, it was a ride I was happy to be on. When I read the last page, I flipped back to the first. It was that amazing. I adore her.
Awaken (Abandon, #3) by Meg Cabot
He wants to do the right thing, but sometimes he needs help figuring out what that is. I think I actually melted at some points in the book. Almost as interesting as the main plot. I liked watching Pierce and her friends fight for what was right. Pierce and John are good together, and in some ways balance each other out.
They really complement each other. Where Pierce is impulsive, John thinks things through more, and so forth. The secondary romance was also so, so cute.
The descriptions could use some work, but the world-building is awesome. I love the way everything pulled together, neatly but not too neatly, if you catch my drift. I seriously only have good things to say about it. I definitely recommend this series to fans of romance, and fans of mythology. Find more of my reviews on Sparkles and Lightning!

From the very first few chapters it already broke my heart and threw all of the pieces around. I mean I knew there was no way it could possibly be true but for it to tease me like that???? Heart breaking D: All of the plot lines were tied up nicely and I have no que So to say that this book made me an emotional mess is a complete understatement!
All of the plot lines were tied up nicely and I have no questions remaining. I do feel like maybe some things were solved a tad bit too easily, but I also think that this happened because Pierce has grown as a character.
She proved herself in this novel and she showed just how bad ass she could be. I loved the fact that John didn't always have to save her because she was capable of saving herself. One thing that was a little annoying though was that I felt like there were a lot of repetitive sentences. Not a big deal exactly, and this could have just been me, but it did make the writing seem a little more bland I guess you can say. Series Rating: View all 7 comments.

John was killed and Pierce got him back from thanatos,only to free thanatos from the rector family. Dec 14, Angie rated it it was ok Shelves: This is one of those series that definitely does not get better as it moves along.
Awaken was an extremely boring, and kind of pointless, ending to a lackluster series. It was pure curiosity and determination that made me read this conclusion.
Mainly, I wanted to know what the heck the plot was! Well, what I thought may have been the plot in the previous book may not have been, and a new plot was revealed in this one. Maybe a week. The Furies are still after John and Pierce, but now there is chaos in the Underworld! And why was this even added in?! At least in theory. John dies early on, and of course everyone is freaking out because how does a dead man die?! Well, it turns out that Thanatos, the god of death, actually exists and has his soul.
Then everything regarding this is resolved super quickly and as if nothing happened at all. Everyone just moves on. I was majorly disappointed! The author has some really good ideas revolving around this god, but absolutely nothing came of it.
It just gives Pierce and her friends something to do during the hurricane.
We get it, you and John are together! I still find it weird to refer to a year old man as a boy though. I rolled my eyes at most of her dialogue.
Her cousin, Alex, also got on my nerves. There was way too much of him, but apparently he was important to the plot. One more thing: I thought this in Underworld , but it gets even more ridiculous in Awaken. Who cares if your parents got high 20 years ago and played with some human remains on the beach?! It added nothing to the story except for another eye rolling moment. Why was this included? The Rector family being terrible people had no baring on the story whatsoever.
Awaken was just anticlimactic. A lot of stuff happens over all, but almost none of it was actually relevant to the plot. The Furies coming after Pierce to torture John? The unbalance in the Underworld which was only introduced in this final book? Good versus Evil?

I have no idea. I will just come out and say it: I do not recommend it. It has some moments that keep it from being dreadful, which is why it gets 2 stars instead of 1. But really, this covers a few days in the life of Pierce Oliviera, in which she falls in insta-love with a death deity, attacks her grandma and other old people with a diamond and a whip, then lives happily ever after.
May 27, Pauline rated it really liked it Shelves: It feels so good to finally finish another awesome series by one of my most sought-after authors. I really like the story of Pierce and John and I think they deserve a great happy ending. I love Greek mythology so much especially Persephone and Hades retellings. Thank you Meg Cabot for giving us another great paranormal love story.
I swear I was swooning over these two lovebirds.
Sep 28, Nicole marked it as to-read. UGH I cant wait to read the third book. Im literally on the edge of my seat cause this book is a total cliff hanger and I cant wait for more of John's Hotness.
The cover was so perfect I was like: Aug 03, AliceRoared rated it did not like it. Pierce, Pierce, Pierce This trilogy spans, what, a week and a half in total? By the end of this, Pierce wants to marry John and have kids with him in the foreseeable future.
She's 17 and she's only properly known the guy for around a fortnight. So apart from Pierce making stupid romantic decisions, she also makes stupid life decisions. She's got this great necklace that alerts her to the presence of evil but she never checks it? I'm looking forward to finishing the series with Awaken and seeing how John and Pierce work together to figure out their lives in the Underworld.
I'm all about mythology and modern takes on mythology. The Greek myths are especially interesting to read because they come filled with all their own drama.
You don't really have to look far to find a scandal. That's why I was excited to give Cabot's version of the Persephone myth a try. The story of Abandon takes place in two ways. We look at Pierce's life now and how people think she's adjusted after a near death experience, and we look at what happened during that near death experience through flashbacks.
Pierce has her reasons for what has happened in the year and a half since she nearly died, but she can't fully explain them to people. Her trip to the underworld has given her questions and problems she isn't sure how to handle. Not only is she struggling to understand what happened to her, but trouble keeps finding her and John magically appears ready to save her.
Pierce's heart is good and she cares a lot for people, but that caring let's bad things follow her. I'm hoping that in the next novel, she finds some strength in standing up for herself and being a little bit selfish.
I can overlook it because I can sense Pierce's confusion about what is going on in her life. She doesn't have the ability to think for herself when she's trying to protect those around her.
The romance between Pierce and John felt a little stilted, but they weren't the real focus of this novel, in my opinion. Their relationship felt a little rushed, but I'm hoping Underworld takes the time to flesh it out and make it bloom. The focus of this novel felt more centered on the necklace and setting up Pierce's history, which worked well for me. It gave me the background to understand Pierce and where she is coming from.
As a retelling or reworking of the Hades and Persephone myth, it didn't quite stand up. It does however, provide the set-up for the myth. I'm hoping to have more of the mythology come into play in the next novel.
Abandon is a good novel to begin a new mythology series. It provides an excellent set-up for the world we are about to enter and leaves questions and puzzles open. It wasn't quite what I had been expecting, but it was still good.
I'm looking forward to reading what comes next for Pierce and John. Paperback Verified Purchase. Contemporary, mythology, Young Adult, Florida Pierce knows what it is like to die especially since she has already done it before. Though she is never alone because someone is always watching her.
Pierce has moved to a new town and hopes that things will be different. Though even in this new place he has found her. He always appears when she needs it most even though she never quite expects it. Pierce is afraid that if she falls for him anymore she will end up in the place she fears the most, the Underworld.
This takes the myth of Persephone and completely reimagines it to place it in a contemporary setting and still makes it all its own story. It does a good job of explaining the back story for Pierce while still staying in the present and what she is currently dealing with.
It has some great twists and turns and with every answer that is unveiled the more that is understood.
The characters are well written and relatable. Reading how Pierce slowly figures out just what is happening to her and what did happen to her takes the reader on a very interesting journey.
It will also having readers wanting to read the next book just to see what else will happen in this story and just where Pierce will ultimately end up. See all reviews.
