Fan-favorite author Bree Despain continues her modern-day romance trilogy inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades with this second book in her Into the Dark series.
Haden Lord, the disgraced Prince of the Underrealm, has chosen love over honor and will do everything in his power to protect Daphne Raines, the human girl he was supposed to bring to the Underrealm. Haden’s choice is put to the test as the Skylords and a figure from his past arrive in Olympus Hills with a plan that could destroy all of the realms.
Embracing her destiny as the Cypher, Daphne begins to understand the immense power of her musical ability to control the elements, but she must come to terms with her feelings for Haden and what she must sacrifice in order to protect him and her friends.
Believing the Key of Hades is the only thing that can stop the Underrealm Court from releasing the monstrous Keres on the mortal world, Haden, Daphne, and their friends set out to find the Key before Persephone’s Gate opens again on the spring equinox.
The Eternity Key by Bree Despain
Daphne and the other students realize they must find the Key of Hades to save the world from the Keres. The key must be found before the spring equinox and the tension is rising. To top it off some of the Skylords have invaded the school at Olympus Hills and there is a possible trader in the mix of students that were trusted.
Haden is struggling with his feelings toward Daphne and his duty to collect her to the underworld.
Daphne is coming to terms with her abilities but is having a hard time with her relationship with her father and her old friends. She is fighting an uphill battle and you would think the pressure she puts on herself would change her but she still has retains an innate goodness.
Meanwhile, Haden and his group are having some problems dealing with their new statuses.
Romance, action and the feeling that the clock is ticking down creates magnetic pull for the reader only to leave you with a cliffhanger, making you want to read on. Written for the younger reader or young reader at heart.
I really enjoyed The Eternity Key but I was recommend reading The Shadow Prince before jumping into this series.
I received this ARC Uncorrected E-Proof of The Eternity Key from Egmont USA in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication April 28, 2015.
