Aimee Carter's debut novel with Harlequin Teen is well worth the read. Apparently, I'm in a Hades/Persephone kind of mood these days. Meg Cabot's Abandon touches on the same subject. Both heriones are kind and good hearted people who care for others. I think The Goddessware herione, Kate Winters, is a serious and sad person by the time we meet her. Her mother is dying and she's agreed to go to her mother's hometown from New York to wait for her mother to die. Eden, the small town they visit, is anything but what she expects.
She ends up making a deal with the god of the dead, a sweet and sexy guy named Henry, that turns everything she's ever known upside down.
