*I received a free ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*
This is going to be a short review since my thoughts on this one about pretty much the same as my thoughts on the first two, with just a few things to add.
I once again like how realistic and normal the high school aspect was, how interesting the story was, how likeable most of the characters were, and how supportive the female friendships were.
But not only did I love Spencer’s friendships with her best friends, I also loved her growing friendships with Thayer, Charlie, and Grim. I even liked the guys’ friendships among each other. They’re not the type of beings to find friends easily, so it was sweet seeing how much they cherished the friends they did have.
Another good thing was that this book had a little more emotion than Book 2 because of some love triangle/relationship-related things with both guys. I can’t say much about that because of spoilers, but Spencer finally made her decision at the end of Book 2, so this time she was dealing with the consequences and trying to work on the relationship with the person she chose. There wasn’t anything too heavy, but there were some painful moments, some bittersweet moments, and some happy moments.
But I once again had a few issues too. Most of them were the same ones I had in the last book, like typos and Hadrian not being the most likeable character (he was a little too volatile this time). And in this one Spencer became an amazing fighter super quickly, which didn’t feel realistic. It was explained as possibly being related to her powers, but still. Also, one of my favorite things about Spencer in the first book was that she actually made good decisions, but, as the series went on, her decision-making skills became worse (like investigating strange situations alone).
Overall though, this was another fun, fast-paced read in the series with some great friendships and conflict that kept me intrigued to know what would happen to these characters!

It’s been six months since Spencer made the deal with the god of the Underworld: a year of spending nights below. Now that she’s finally given into her feelings for Hadrian, she hopes her second life will start getting less complicated. Of course, considering her new world is filled with Reapers, demons, and malicious spirits, that doesn’t seem likely. What does surprise her is the way her ex-soul mate Micah St. James is treating her. Ever since they broke up he’s been giving her the cold shoulder, and the more she worries about where they stand, the more she ends up putting a wedge between her and Hadrian. She chose the god for a reason, now she just has to keep that in mind while they fight off the attacks of an evil Persephone hell bent on tearing them apart. By any means necessary. She’s already lost Micah. She’d die–again–if the original Gravewalker got her way and managed to steal Hadrian as well.
