About the book:

The Underworld is the sequel to The Fallen Star (Fallen Star Series, Volume 1)
Gemma thought her mind was gone, but she was wrong. And now she is left trying to figure out the truth to what Stephan is planning to do with her and the star, before it’s too late.
But finding out the truth is hard, especially since Gemma doesn’t know who she can trust. There may be only one person who Gemma can turn to for answers, but that means having to go to the one place no one wants to go—The Underworld.

review plate The Underworld is the second book to the Fallen Star series. I was intrigued with this story line from the start of the first book. In this second book Gemma is struggling to know just who to trust. At every twist and turns it seems one more person has a personal agenda that may just hand her over to the dark side. Although, as the story progresses Gemma is continually learning to control the star’s power and test its limits. This second novel carries the same excellent story line, but it seems to be lacking some of the intensity and intrigue that the first novel offered. I still find this book to be a very recommended read, but it was lacking some of the excellence that the first novel gave me.
