Abandon by Meg Cabot
Through every city he shall hunt her down,
until he shall have driven her back to hell.
There from whence envy first did set her loose.
Greek Mythology is never anyone's favorite thing to listen to but Meg Cabot weaves a dark romance story from the Classic tale of the godesss Persephone who was kidnapped by the God of the Underworld Hades.
17 year old Pierce knows exactly what it's like to die after she has a Near Death Experience in her family's backyard pool and drowns trying to rescue an injured bird. More than an hour passes before she's finally revived by the paramedics. Even after 2 years Pierce is haunted by her memories of the underworld but more haunted by the mysterious death diety who tried to keep her there.
