Review: Abandon

Name: The Abandon Trilogy (Abandon)
Author: Meg Cabot

Synopsis:

The Myth of Persephone, Darkly Reimagined

She didn’t fall into his world. She was taken.
Seventeen-year-old Pierce knows what happens to us when we die.
That’s how she met John Hayden, the mysterious stranger who’s made returning to normal life—or at least life as Pierce knew it before the accident—next to impossible.
Though she thought she escaped him—starting a new school in a whole new place—it turns out she was wrong. He finds her.
What does John want from her? Pierce thinks she knows… just like she knows he’s no guardian angel, and his dark world isn’t exactly heaven. But she can’t stay away from him, either, especially since he’s always there when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she might find herself back in the place she fears the most.
And when Pierce discovers the shocking truth, that’s exactly where John sweeps her:
The Underworld.

Pierce is living in her version of a hell hole: Isla Huesos or in English: Island of Bones. There with her recently divorced mom, she is struggling to keep up the facade of a normal life after her near death experience. However, when John, someone she saw in the other world, starts popping up randomly in her life, she fears that he’s not just there to mess around, or even to protect her.

I liked this story. No, it’s not my favourite by Meg Cabot because, in my honest opinion, it was semi boring. A lot of the story was all back story. What had happened in the past. I get that that was a big portion of the main storyline, but I felt it was placed at odd times and often times confused me as I read. Nonetheless, I did like the overall storyline, and plus, this is only the first book to the trilogy. Hopefully the second book is better than this one!

Plot: 4/5
Characters: 4/5
World Building: 5/5
Cover: 5/5
Overall: 4/5
GoodReads Rating: 3.74/5

Quotes:
John never wore white. To me, this was a good thing.
Oh, right, I was never thinking about him again.
-Narrator-Pierce

He looked indignant. “He wasn’t innocent. He was an
ass. He should never have touched you. He deserved
everything he got.”
-John
