Enjoyable, but you have to really like cliches and over the top plot elements.

A really good book based on the Hades and Persephone myth. When Daphne goes to live with her rock star father, Joe, in Olympus Hills its a whole new world. The action heats up when she meets Haden, who has been sent from the underworld to bring her back to his home. Interesting characters, lots of action, some romance kept me reading and enjoying this book! Although the end was a bit too "pat" I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Great for fantasy readers who enjoy a touch of romance.

Haden Lord, the disgraced prince of the Underrealm, has been sent to the mortal world to entice a girl into returning with him to the land of the dead. Posing as a student at Olympus Hills High—a haven for children of the rich and famous—Haden must single out the one girl rumored to be able to restore immortality to his race.

Daphne Raines has dreams much bigger than her tiny southern Utah town, so when her rock star dad suddenly reappears, offering her full tuition to Olympus Hills High’s prestigious music program, she sees an opportunity to catch the break she needs to make it as a singer. But upon moving into her estranged father’s mansion in California, and attending her glamorous new school, Daphne soon realizes she isn’t the only student in Olympus who doesn’t quite belong.

Haden and Daphne—destined for each other—know nothing of the true stakes their fated courtship entails. As war between the gods brews, the teenagers’ lives collide. But Daphne won’t be wooed easily and when it seems their prophesied link could happen, Haden realizes something he never intended—he’s fallen in love. Now to save themselves, Haden and Daphne must rewrite their destinies. But as their destinies change, so do the fates of both their worlds.(less)
