It's Hell on heels--again
When Shar tries on a ring from Hades, it activates an obscure contractual clause that puts Shar and former-frenemy-now-friend Meg in Hades' service once more. Shar is whisked away to the Underworld to prepare a ball for Persephone, while Meg is sent to retrieve the errant soul of spoiled rich girl Paulina Swanson and send her to the abyss. Just when it appears the girls will be doomed to serve Hades for eternity, Shar meets two possibly helpful demi-gods who also happen to be gorgeous. Can the girls finally ditch the Lord of the Dead once and for all?

Goodreads Summary

Shar and Meg return in this second novel of the series.  Though the two will make the reader laugh, they might come off as a little annoying at times.  The authors really captured the "teen" spirit and channelled it throughout the book.  The pair are up to their antics yet again when Shar decides she simply must try on a certain ring...ending with them doing errands for Hades once again.  The reader will see more of Persephone in this book as Shar prepares a ball for her.  Meg is stuck finding another resistant soul.  The work may not be pleasant, but it sure is funny!  The reader will be laughing through this novel as he/she surely did through the last. 

The authors provide plenty of detail, enough so the reader can picture the scenes and character in his/her head.  Meg and Shar may be hard to relate to at first, but the reader will warm up to them by the middle of the book.  They may remind the reader of a classmate or friend.  The other characters will interest the reader in a variety of ways.  The seductive Hades is back on the scene with his none-too-pleased wife Persephone.  The plot itself moves quickly, the dialogue helps push it along.  Overall, this book is perfect for young adults/teens.

    This series sounds great...I love mythology and I am interested in why Hades would have teens doing errands in the underworld.
