Abandon (Abandon Trilogy, #1)Abandon (Abandon Trilogy #1)

New from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a dark, fantastical story about this world . . . and the underworld.

Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.

Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.

But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.

Underworld (Abandon Trilogy #2)

Underworld (Abandon Trilogy #2)

Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.

Seventeen-year-old Pierce Oliviera isn’t dead.

Not this time.

But she is being held against her will in the dim, twilit world between heaven and hell, where the spirits of the deceased wait before embarking upon their final journey.

Her captor, John Hayden, claims it’s for her own safety. Because not all the departed are dear. Some are so unhappy with where they ended up after leaving the Underworld, they’ve come back as Furies, intent on vengeance…on the one who sent them there and on the one whom he loves.

But while Pierce might be safe from the Furies in the Underworld, far worse dangers could be lurking for her there…and they might have more to do with its ruler than with his enemies.

And unless Pierce is careful, this time there will be no escape.

What's your favorite myth?

It would be lovely if you visited both sites and left a comment (you will get an extra entry)



  1. I can't pick a favorite myth. I'm fascinated by all of them.

  2. I love Greek myths, the story of Narcissus and Echo for example.

    I have great hopes for this one, lost my brand new hardback copy of Abandon in a house fire last year and have not replaced it so would love to get both the books to read and enjoy so thanks for the lovely giveaway for Meg's series!

  3. I really enjoy many of them but one favorite is Hades and Persephone.

  4. My favorite myth is the Sumerian myth of Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth.

  5. My favorite myth is the Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa.

  6. My favorite myth is Hades and Persephone, I enjoy reading books that retell the myth as well! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  7. I think Greek mythology is awesome and I love how it is starting to appear in literature. I love the aphrodite and hephaestus story. Great giveaway

  8. Definitely the Hades and Persephone myth. Always....ever since I was a kid. It's just so fascinating.
