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.

Into the Dark! Because Mythology is really in for 2014! It sounds pretty interesting & advance reviews are looking good and I think it just popped up on Netgalley too! Not sure how I feel about the cover though…it’s cool, but it’s not? But I’m willing to give it a shot. Also, the title makes me think of Star Trek: Into the Darkness haha.

What’s your WoW? Link us up!

  17. I have the e-ARC of this, too, but I think it will be a while before I get to it. It sounds like it has the potential to be very good, and at 512 pages, I certainly hope it is.
