The Lovereading4Kids comment

The first book in the brand-new dark and dangerously seductive trilogy from bestselling teen author Meg Cabot, now in paperback! It's dark paranormal romance at its best and combined with Meg's brilliant storytelling powers we think she's hit the jackpot. She paints a vivid picture of the mythological underworld and the creatures within.


Abandon by Meg Cabot

Last year, Pierce died - just for a moment. And when she was in the space between life and death, she met John. Tall dark and terrifying, it's his job to usher souls from one realm to the next. There's a fierce attraction between them, which Pierce carries back into our world. But she knows that if she allows herself to fall for John she will be doomed to a life of shadows and loneliness in the Underworld. When things get dangerous for her, her only hope is to do exactly what John says. Can she trust a guy who lives for the dead?

Cabot delivers. --Publishers Weekly

In May 2006, the Harvard Crimson released reports that 19-year-old author Kaavya Viswanathan borrowed passages from Cabot's Princess Diaries series, and other books, to place in her novel How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life. Viswanathan's novels were subsequently pulled from the shelves.
