BOOK REVIEW: The Underworld (Fallen Star #2) by Jessica Sorensen

Date Published: July 31, 2011
Book Description (Goodreads): 
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.


Once again, I was left hanging. I'm glad that a lot of questions were answered in this book. This is definitely better than the first one.

It was mentioned in the prequel, The Fallen Star, that Gemma's mom, Jocelyn, is in the underworld. From the title itself, you will have an idea of what the book is mostly about. 

With the characters, Gemma and Alex will still have a lot of arguments/fights but it'll get better as the story goes on. For most parts, it's just Gemma, Alex and Laylen. As for Aislin, I noticed that she ain't a big part of the book, she just comes and goes. Laylen will have changes within himself that I think will make the story muc interesting. 

There's more action, death walkers, fairies and visions. All in all, it was a good read and I enjoyed it!

If you were disappointed with the first book, this is definitely better but just don't get your hopes too high. And for those who liked the first one, I think I won't need to encourage you to read this. So just read it!

Happy reading!

“You remember the word we said when we pressed our hands together, right?"

I nodded. Forem. But what does it mean?"

"Forever,” he said his breath shaky. "It means we're bonded together forever.”

  1. Such a suspenseful and easy to read story. I can't wait to get the next one. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Harry Potter or the Magician's Apprentice.
