Really didn't get this...
on 15 September 2013
I thought the idea behind this book was interesting; a girl suddenly orphaned helps get revenge with the help of the Gods of the Underworld.
However, when actually reading it, I found the story bounced around far too much, and far too quickly.
Instead of mourning her dead parents, this girl ends up sleeping all the time, so that she can meet up with the Gods of the Underworld. Her priorities seem to be all wrong!
She'll happily be dancing around in dreamland, when suddenly 'I must find Hip' pops into her head, and she suddenly somehow teleports to the Underworld to have a confusing, flirty conversation with Hip. The flirty tone just seems to overrun the grief this girl should be going through after losing her parents.
I just found the story disappointing, compared to what it could have been.
