Synopsis:When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies.
So when teen pop star Eden croaks onstage and Kaylee doesn’t wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can’t cry for someone who has no soul.
The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld—a consequence they can’t possibly understand.
Kaylee can’t let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk...

I have had this series sitting on my shelf for a while now and I'm slowing getting around to reading the series as I really enjoyed the first one, however, I felt book two fell flat...

I like the cover as it matches my first cover but for me I prefer the new UK covers this one feels a little plain compared. I love the colours but what I love the most is the mystical look to it which is in keeping with the series.

When I first started this book I thought I was going to enjoy it as I loved the first one plus it started off strong, however, the further I went into the story the more I got bored I just wanted to get it over and done with. I think for me the reason why I couldn't stay with this book was because of the storyline was a bit too far fetched as I just couldn't see how much they would risk for someone they don't even know plus there just wasn't much action going on until closer to the end. I kind of liked the growth of Kaylee's and Nash's relationship but I feel like there's doubts starting to creep in on how Nash really feels so therefore I wasn't able to stay involved in their relationship. There is some funny moments but not enough for me to start to love the book. The ending has made me want to continue with the series.

I fell out of love with all the characters in this book plus I never could warm up to the new characters introduced. Kaylee seemed to annoy me a lot in this book and I don't really know why I just couldn't warm up to her like I did the first book. Nash was the only one who had some sense but there was times when I didn't like his attitude. Todd annoyed me in this one as he was willing to risk everyone's lives for a past love. Addison was a new character who I just couldn't warm to as she came across as a selfish rich girl.

Overall I was so disappointed in this book but I will continue the series in the hope it will go back to the goodness of the first book.
