Product Description

Chrys has been in the Underworld for thousands of years, hidden away by her father, Hades, from all the other gods. He's afraid that if someone finds out about her, that they will destroy her because of the dichotomous power that she holds, the power of life and death. So she has remained in the Palace of Hades all her life, making very little friends and always bored out of her mind.

Huntley would have never guessed that after he died that he would wake up with a beautiful girl standing over him. And that she would be the Dark Lord of the Underworld's daughter. Yet, for some reason, she keeps him around as her tutor, as if he knows anything about the world. But Huntley knows that all she really wants is a friend; being trapped in the Underworld can get pretty lonely.

That is, until Chrys decides that she wants to run away to the human world after a big fight with her mother Persephone. Chrys claims that her father is over reacting and that nothing bad will come of it. There's no way that the gods will notice she's there for only a couple of days, right?

*This book was received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

I went into this book with high expectation but they fell flat. I was disappointed that in the synopsis it said that Huntley died and woke up with Chrys above him but that event had already occurred in the book and Huntley had been in the Underworld for 1-2 years. I also didn't like Chrys' character, as I found her really annoying, and how she insisted on going up and visiting Earth; anyone could tell from a mile off it was a bad idea, especially if Hades tells you not to. A.J.'s suspicious behaviour was also dismissed by Huntley but it was obvious from the start he was up to something. I didn't like the writing style for most of the book, especially Huntley's P.O.V. when he continually went on and on about how much he liked Chrys and how much he wanted to protect her. The only saving grace of the book was the ending in which there was some action and things got more interesting. Overall, this was a disappointing read that was saved only by the action-packed ending.

Endangered is the story of Chrys, daughter of Hades. She longs to leave the underworld and explore. She cannot understand why her father refuses to let her. When she decides to sneak out, she finds more danger than she ever imagined. Can she find her way back home? Or will her actions cause a war between the gods?

3.0 out of 5 stars Hoots + Hades = A Thrilling Read for Mythology Lovers! 16 May 2016
By Stephanie @ TeacherofYA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
**I received a copy of this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

Ok. Good story. Liked the plot. Interesting and well thought out.
On the other hand, the author thanks her editor at the end of her book, so there's proof that it has been edited. And still the mistakes. Honestly, if the mistakes were fixed, this might have been a four to four and a half stars (but no half stars allowed, right?). The plot saved it for me. I think this book could be very popular, but someone needs to reread this book and really fix the proofreading errors. If I can catch them in s single read, then someone else should.
Now for the actual story: Chrys is the daughter of Hades and Persephone. Hades isn't supposed to be able to bear children, as he is the God of Death and all...but somehow, it happened, and she's been stuck in the Underworld, hiding from Zeus. If he finds out she exists, then she's toast. But Persephone hates the Underworld, and she says in the heat of the moment that she wishes she could stay on Earth because there's nothing to keep her down below. Ouch. If my mother said something like that in front of me, I would probably feel pretty rejected, too. So she takes her two best friends, A.J. and Huntley up to Earth to see what it's like...if only for a few days. If Zeus finds out, there will be hell to pay. Get it? Hell to pay...anyway...
So that's the plot for you. Nice, different. Enough to keep you reading. So.id effort on the author's part to make it interesting. Some of the POV switches between Huntley (the boy) and Chrys (daughter of Hades) seem to sound the same at times...but it's a good work in progress. Someone just needs to come along and polish it up, and it could be very successful as a series. As it stands, it needs some work. Technical work, mainly. But other than that, an entertaining read, and I would be willing to read the next one in the series just to know what happens. If left off on a pretty compelling cliffhanger....
★★★☆☆. I'd add a half if it was possible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underworld Blues 10 June 2016
By John Green, NCGBT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
***Disclaimer: I received a copy in exchange for a review.***

The First Five Words/Intro: “Hello and welcome to the Underworld. My name is Chrys, and I am the daughter of Hades. May I take your coat?” Sets the tone for the story but didn’t inspire much confidence. For a goddess who’s never set foot out of the Underworld she’s got a definitively modern style to her. If she’s been alive for so many thousands of years- and was personally mentored by Shakespeare himself- why does she only have contemporary references yet remain so clueless about things?

Style: The POV switches between Chrys and Huntley; an interesting tactic that allows you to see the story from different perspectives. The overall tone is pretty consistent yet uneven. Again, this is the centuries-old daughter of a god and a goddess in her own right, yet she’s only matured physically/emotionally to a high school level? I’d like to think there’s a reason for this, especially as every other godly being encountered is clearly an adult- aside from her own friends, conveniently- but we’re not given one.

Characters: Chrys is interesting enough but seems stuck in a permanent state of wangst. She can’t seem to make up her mind about much of anything other than being self-absorbed Ex: “My father was one of the most important people in my life, if the not the most important…” Really? You’re not sure? You know all of four people and you can’t tell where your own father ranks among them? Smooth. For a main character she doesn’t have much of an arc or growth through the story.

Huntley is an ok dude with some depth and develops more than Chrys does. He’s never much examined his circumstances and always treaded carefully, aware of how fragile his status is, but begins piecing things together and wondering about his place as a mortal amongst gods.

AJ or Agenor, has a potentially interesting backstory as how a son of Poseidon ended up in the Underworld, but we never learn it. This Agenor seems like he was based off the one from the Wrath of the Titans movie than actual mythology. You know he’s up to something; but what it is and why isn’t what you’d expect.

Story & Conflict: When we finally get to it, it’s a little disappointing. Without going into spoilers a lot of trouble could’ve been avoided if Hades had done what he should’ve all along and only offered to after everything hits the fan: train Chrys properly. The whole story centers around keeping Chrys under wraps and unknown to the rest of the gods, yet Hades never bothers to develop her powers even though he knows what she’s capable of and she’s constantly frightened of what could happen should she lose control. But no one ever teaches her.

Right when things were getting kinda interesting, the author pulls out the same old MarySue/Chosen One card: Chrys is the one from the prophecy with the power to destroy the gods, etc, blahblahblah.

I was ready to stop reading right there.

I don’t understand why *every* PNR/UF story- especially YA- want to go down this road. What’s the point? Where’s the struggle and conflict if the character is all-powerful right from the jump? Why can’t they just discover (not all of) their abilities, work around their limitations and face challenges with/against their peers? Ultimate beings are ultimately pretty damn dull and this doesn’t leave much room for improvement in the sequels: who can stand up to an all-powerful entity who’s fated to win? Why would anyone even try?

Proficiency: book needed proofreading. Simple as that.

Dialogue: Everyone speaks in a contemporary style, fitting enough for a modern day setting. But again, you’d think Chrys- and everyone else who resides in the Underworld- would have more formal & archaic speech patterns as they never leave it and have limited exposure to the world.

Narrative/Pacing: a pretty even keel for the most part. The bulk of the story is filled with the dynamics of the relationship between Chrys & Huntley and how they relate to everyone else. It’s not bad, just could’ve used more punch, or maybe a little something from Hades’ own POV.

Overall, there’s a story buried in here and has the potential to be a good one. It just needs to be treated as what it claims to be: a goddess who shouldn’t exist coming into her own to face those who want to destroy her, instead of a whiny teenaged girl whose tantrums could destroy the world and the father who never trained her not to. Because with the latter everyone else has a good point in wanting to stop her.
4.0 out of 5 stars this is a snarky fun hoot of a book 20 June 2016
By hello-booklover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
this is a snarky fun hoot of a book. I feel for chrys and Huntley to some extent. the one I feel for the most and never thought I would say this is Hades. Yes I feel really bad for Hades. And again never thought I would say this he is totally misunderstood, mistreated and deserves a hug. Hades in this story is so wronged by his brothers particularly Zeus and I love the love he has for his daughter who he protects with everything he is.

Chrys is the daughter of Hades, never having left the underworld and her friends are Huntley a human who she finds in the river and I think has feelings for and AJ-a demigod who is the son of Poseidon. Frankly Poseidon got what he deserved in this book from Chrys. I hust hope the one who hurt Chrys the most does as well. He wronged not only Chrys but Hades as well and deserves his wrath. Chrys is adored by her father and Huntley, her mom not so much. Her mom is the one that angers her and drives her to do something stupid. She endangers herself and her friends so she can go to Earth. A place she has never been so she can see what that world is like. Not thinking anything would happen but boy is she wrong and it blows up in a spectacular fashion. So much that you truly do feel for Hades at the end. Heck even Prometheus and Menidoe are on Hades side and feel he has a bad rap and is a nice guy. Hades is so wronged by his brothers and I hope that him and Huntley can work together to help Chrys in the next book out of the predicament she is in due to her rash actions done from anger. You can see the love and adoration Chrys has for her dad and disdain for her mom as well throughout the book. Favorite scene: the poker playing with Hades and reading how Cerberus is a misunderstood puppy.

This is a fun hysterical book. The story is a great twist on gods and demigod and done in a entertaining, snarky at times but fun way. We have Hades as the misunderstood nice guy who loves his daughter and protects with all that he is. He is sad and lonely and gets a bad rap on Earth. His daughter is the light of his life. Huntley and Aj are Chrys’s friends. Huntley is fun loving and mischievous and AJ has an arrogant air of superiority around him.He is also a jackass in my opinion and a coward. Chrys is the snarky mischievous daughter of Hades and Persephone who is curious about what her mom sees that is wonderful about Earth. Her father is her world and she loves him dearly. We see why she is protected so fiercely by her dad in the end of the book and left wondering what is going to happen. It is so sad to see her budding romance squashed, her dad so heartbroken and sad, and her feeling like she let so many down. The story is entertaining and captivating. the characters and their interactions keep you wanting more as you explore the underworld, Earth and see why hiding Chrys was so important as danger comes her way and she makes a decision that saddens many and has then all wondering how they can stop the fate that is now Chrys’s. a truly entertaining book and I am excited to see how this plays out. Again this is a shocker for me to say but I so hope Hades gets to have happiness and win what he wants the most in the end of this series for this is a fun wild riding series if the first book is any indication and one that will keep us sure entertained.
