Book Review: Netherworld by K.N. Lee


What would you do if a demon threatened your mother's life? If you're like Koa, you'd sharpen your enchanted sword and go after him...

Our world is threatened by the creatures of an alternate land called the Netherworld. Koa and the Netherworld division are there to keep the vampire population in check. Koa is a powerful half-blood vampire. Her best friend is her boss, she has a cursed mother, an enchanted sword, and an attractive human pet.

Koa also has a problem. A Netherworld serial killer, with a taste for little girls, threatens everything Koa has worked hard to protect. Not even Koa's boss, Halston can stop him. But he knows one prisoner that can. Too bad that prison is in the Netherworld.

Is Koa ready to journey to the Netherworld to release the one creature that can break her mother's curse and protect all that she holds dear?


My Review

Netherworld is a darkly intense story of a young woman with a huge chunk of her past missing. She simply cannot remember most of her teen years and she doesn't understand why. Her best friend, Halston, holds the key to the truth but is reluctant to reveal it because he knows it will put her life in danger. Until the day comes when the truth can no longer be hidden. What waits for Koa on the other side of the Netherworld Gate will shake the very foundation of all she believes.

I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are diverse and interesting, the battle scenes are exciting, and the story has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. Koa is a headstrong young woman whose reckless behavior sometimes get her into trouble. She's a fighter, but not invincible. Halston is a fallen angel trying to redeem himself so he can return to the Kingdom of Heaven. He's also a man with a dark side and a lot of secrets, not all of them his own. Together, they must stop Greggan, a king vampire, from unleashing hell on earth.

Secrets are a big part of the story and though some were revealed by the ending, enough was left out to leave me eager for the next book in the series. Can Koa and Halston defeat Greggan? Will Koa's mother ever be returned to her true form? How will Koa choose between two men who each hold pieces of her heart? I guess I'll just have to read on to find out.
