Abandon by Meg Cabot

Source: Gift
New from #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot, a dark, fantastical story about this world . . . and the underworld.
Though she tries returning to the life she knew before the accident, Pierce can't help but feel at once a part of this world, and apart from it. Yet she's never alone . . . because someone is always watching her. Escape from the realm of the dead is impossible when someone there wants you back.
But now she's moved to a new town. Maybe at her new school, she can start fresh. Maybe she can stop feeling so afraid.
Only she can't. Because even here, he finds her. That's how desperately he wants her back. She knows he's no guardian angel, and his dark world isn't exactly heaven, yet she can't stay away . . . especially since he always appears when she least expects it, but exactly when she needs him most.
But if she lets herself fall any further, she may just find herself back in the one place she most fears: the Underworld.

Abandon was all about setting up a series perfectly for the next few books. As result, Abandon dragged a few times and the story wasn't that confusing, even though it was constantly going back and forth between the past and the present. I didn't like that most of the story was hinted too and then later explained. It made it hard to understand Pierce at times and I didn't feel liked I connected to her. I also never felt like the climax completely developed. John was really fascinating, dark, confusing, and secretive, even with all of this, I found him to be confusing, but rather intriguing. I think that there is a lot of originality in Abandon and I am excited to see what Cabot will write next. I definitely enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to Underworld.
