Product Description
It's always been just Kate and her mom--and her
mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her
childhood home. So Kate's going to start at a new school
with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother
won't live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And
mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the
Underworld--and if she accepts his bargain, he'll keep
her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he's crazy--until she sees him bring a girl
back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily
possible. If she succeeds, she'll become Henry's future
bride, and a goddess.

About the Author
Aimee Carter was born in 1986 and raised in
Michigan, where she currently resides. She started
writing fan fiction at eleven, began her first original story
four years later, and hasn't stopped writing since.
Besides writing and reading, she enjoys seeing movies,
playing with her puppies, and wrestling with the puzzles in
the paper each morning.

"The prize is immortality," Henry said.
"It's not something we give out lightly, and we need to
make sure it is something you can handle."
I felt a cold block of ice form in the pit of my stomach.
So my choices now were to live forever or die trying.
Somehow it didn't seem fair.
"You will do well," Henry said. "I can feel it. And
afterward, you will help me do something that no one else
is capable of doing. You will have power beyond
imagining, and you will never fear death again. You will
never grow old and you will always be beautiful. You will
have eternal life to spend as you wish."
But would I have my mother?
