The Eternity Key by Bree Despain

Saturday, August 8, 2015

Fan-favorite author Bree Despain continues her modern-day romance trilogy inspired by the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades with this second book in her Into the Dark series.

Haden Lord, the disgraced Prince of the Underrealm, has chosen love over honor and will do everything in his power to protect Daphne Raines, the human girl he was supposed to bring to the Underrealm. Haden’s choice is put to the test as the Skylords and a figure from his past arrive in Olympus Hills with a plan that could destroy all of the realms.

Embracing her destiny as the Cypher, Daphne begins to understand the immense power of her musical ability to control the elements, but she must come to terms with her feelings for Haden and what she must sacrifice in order to protect him and her friends.

Believing the Key of Hades is the only thing that can stop the Underrealm Court from releasing the monstrous Keres on the mortal world, Haden, Daphne, and their friends set out to find the Key before Persephone’s Gate opens again on the spring equinox.

Goodreads Summary

I love everything to do with Greek mythology and this book is no exception.  The second book of the Into the Dark series, this book was worth the wait!  Daphne and her friends are searching for the Eternity Key.  They run into lots of trouble and make some bad decisions along the way.  Haden is still dancing around the idea of telling Daphne his true feelings.  I really did wish for more development from the romance aspect, but I definitely don't mind an author taking it slow.  There are too many inst-romances out there and this book isn't one of them. 

The key is supposed to prevent the release of a monster that would be a terror to the world.  It became imperative in the book to discover the location of the key.  I thought some of  how Daphne acted was silly and overdone, but I liked that she was a strong female character.  She didn't depend on Haden to make the decisions.  I hope there is more romance in the next book!  This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.
