New Young Adult novel so hot it takes my breath away!
Piper’s world is dying. Each day brings hotter temperatures and heat bubbles which threaten to destroy the Earth. Amid this Global Heating Crisis, Piper lives under the oppressive rule of her mother, who suffocates her even more than the weather does. Everything changes on her eighteenth birthday, when her mother is called away on a mysterious errand and Piper seizes her first opportunity for freedom.
Piper discovers a universe she never knew existed—a sphere of gods and monsters—and realizes that her world is not the only one in crisis. While gods battle for control of the Underworld, Piper’s life spirals out of control as she struggles to find the answer to the secret that has been kept from her since birth—her very identity….
I seriously loved this book. Initially I was so annoyed that she "fell in love" so quickly with Shayne, of course until we figured out who she really was. I also wouldn't that that Piper's mother could end up making her go crazy and she end up a sociopath. Of course, its does get explained in the end. This book as an amazing blend of Dystopia and Mythology. I loved it and can't wait for a new book!
