Kurzbeschreibung

For as long as Frederica can remember, there's been something odd about her family. Secret conversations she isn't supposed to hear, separate bedrooms for her parents, and a terrible fear in her father's eyes that she doesn't understand. She used to worry her parents were on the edge of divorce. If only…

Then a strange boy--mysterious but irresistible--comes to her town. Paranormal danger follows him everywhere and, the closer Freddy gets to her crush, the weirder her life becomes. She is sucked into a perilous world where myth and legend are real. And the ancient gods are at war with one another.

Freddy finds herself caught between the feuding pantheons. Now she must fight her way home and defeat a ruthless new enemy who will stop at nothing to see Freddy dead.

A fun fantasy adventure with a romantic twist, this book should appeal to fans of butt-kicking female leads and hot guys with a supernatural secret.

4.0 von 5 Sternen mixture of gods- interesting read 18. November 2012
Von YA lit reviewer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Freddy has met someone who is drop dead gorgeous. Unfortunately, she finds out that she would have had an easier life if she had not met him being that he is the son of Hades, Greek god of the underworld. Now Freddy find herself caught as a pawn in a game of gods.

This book combines Celtic and Greek gods. This sounds like it could be disaster, but I thought it worked well together. I would have to say, I was happy to see who her father Collin turned out to be. I started to guess a few chapters before. Of all my Celtic myths I've read, he was always my favorite. Some of the others I had not heard of before and some I had. So it was a nice large mixture of people that all meshed well together.

The cover had me a bit confused as you were waiting to see if Freddy was the heir. The title and main character were not the same- which is what the cover kind of projected to me. It would have been better if Deg was on the cover with the title. The edit was fine and nothing was too distracting.

Yes, I would recommend this to people that like mythology in their stories. It was a unique read and easy to follow.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Read! 16. Januar 2012
Von Ashley Brunts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Heir to the Underworld was the second book I have read by E.D. Walker and she hasn't failed me yet! A great Young Adult book that doesn't delve too far into the unwanted, this book is a fun mash of your Celtic Mythology meeting your Greek. The unique idea to combine both pantheons and watch them interact through the book makes it something you don't want to put down the entire time. The main character, Freddy, is witty and fun in a way that can be easy for the reader to relate to and make the reader want to get to know her better. And as for the main hotty, well you really should just read the book and trust me on this one, he's worth it!

All in all Heir to the Underworld is a wonderful read I would recommend to anyone who's a fan of Fantasy or Paranormal books!

4.0 von 5 Sternen 16 at your First Toga Party? Uh-oh... 21. April 2012
Von Beverly Diehl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I loved that this book mixed Greek and Celtic mythology in a (fairly) believable way, and brought it to SoCal. (Why not, we got every other freak here, lol.) I also loved our lead heroine's voice - she sounded 16, whereas in a lot of YA the 16 year old sounds more like she's 60.

What threw me a little in the beginning was the title compared to the plot; I thought the heroine, Freddy was (or was supposed to be) the Heir to the Underworld. That refers to Polydegmon, the young man she falls in love with, though she is some kind of divine offspring, herself.

I did love Freddy, and her powerful archery and sword-fighting skillz, though I thought her mother was a bit weak and vapid, until the very end. I also wished I had gotten to see Persephone, my own favorite of the Greek myths, but although the story involved her sons, daughter, and husband, she was MIA.

The story concluded in a logical and satisfying fashion. Been puzzling over what didn't work for me, and conclude it was the pacing; some sections seemed to move a bit too fast, others seemed to drag a bit. But all in all I can recommend this as a good read and I'm looking forward to see what this author comes up with, next.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A true emotional roller coaster 20. Juli 2013
Von Iris - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While reading this book I experienced a roller coaster of emotions. However, the first emotion I encountered was annoyance. The story hadn't taken off yet and it was too soon for me and Freddy to be joined at the hip. Therefore I felt annoyed when she started doing things which obviously wouldn't end well. This made continuing the book a hardship and the only thing that prevented me from throwing it away was her mysterious parentage.

The next thing I knew, the story picked up pace and I was hooked! At that moment the roller coaster started for real. I can't even count or describe all the different emotions I experienced while reading this book. There were times where my heart was beating in my throat, so tense was the situation. Or I felt tears rolling down my cheeks because of the hopelessness. Unfortunately, even with all those emotions toying with me, there were still times were I felt annoyed. This time not because of Freddy, nope. This time her male counterpart was to blame!

And that was a first for me. Normally I'm too focused on our hero's hotness, his willingness to save our heroine when she's once again doing something stupid and the mysterious air that surrounds male protagonists. Deg, though, just worked on my nerves. He's sooooo not hero material. More like a lazy god who only thinks about saving his own skin. He's always minutes too late in saving Fred, who by the way is more than capable of saving them BOTH. He's also good in making problems worse. Actually, he behaved like a typical FEMALE ya protagonist. It was like the situation was reversed. Although I quite liked the fact that for once the hero is doing BLOND things, it didn't make me less annoyed when Deg was at it again.

As I said, Fred and I had a rocky start. After that she grew to someone I loved to read about. She has her heart on the right place. Knows how to kick-ass and won't let anyone shut her op. I especially liked that temper of hers! As I came know her more and more I also developed a huge compassion for Fred and the situation she gets caught in. It brought me close to tears a couple of times. I could totally feel her desperation, the unfairness of it all. For a moment I thought she would give up, but fortunately she found the strength to fight back. Which made me love her all the more.

It was also very fascinating to see how E.D. Walker mixed ancient Greek Gods with Celtic myths and legends. She managed to create an intriguing world where many gods and mythical creatures found a place to live. The plot was also quite strong and well-developed. It had me on the edge of my seat after the rather difficult start. The only real shame I felt was that this book is a stand-alone. I'd loved to discover more of this world and go on more adventures with Fred.

Conclusion

Once you're fully in the story, it was a great read. It also played around with my emotions and I adored our main character, Fred. The hardships she had to face... *shivers* I was less fond of our male character. He managed to annoy the crap out of me. He's a god fo Christ' Sake! Can't he grow some balls? Anyway it's a more than decent story with wonderful world building and vast amounts of gods and mythical creatures. Add to that a wonderful and well-done plot and I was quite fond of this book ^^

3.0 von 5 Sternen Seems like there should be more! 20. Januar 2013
Von Lisann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Sometimes these books just end without really wrapping up the story line and you are left touching to turn pages that aren't there! The story was good but the end was disappointing!
