Unseen by Amber lynn Natusch

Whispers in the darkness
From shadows on the wall,
telling of his wicked fate,
now echo through the hall.
The dead will soon be rising;
the mighty one doth pall.
The dead will soon be rising,

to see his kingdom fall

Welcome to the kingdom of Hades, where even its prodigal princess sleeps lightly. 
After fighting Soul Stealers in Detroit, Khara hoped to return home to find answers in her father's realm. But the land of the dead offers little information, and far too much tragedy. Now cut off from her brothers, and left only with her dark and unreliable companion Oz, Khara must navigate the centuries-old webs of deceit and betrayal, all the while eluding the underworld's most depraved inhabitant. But she soon finds an unexpected ally in her adopted sister Persephone. Together, they endeavour to right a terrible wrong. And as Khara soon discovers, there's more riding on her success than she ever thought possible. 

So much better than the first book in the series! Khara was kind of a boring character for the first book because she feared nothing, not even dying, she was as emotionless as a rock and the way she talked was really old fashioned, stiff and boring. But in 'Unseen', she is so much more relatable, she is finally figuring out what feelings are, and there are actual things that worry her! I get that living in the underworld will most likely desensitise you to certain things, but it was kinda ridiculous and annoying. Anyway, rant over. I loved the second book, it was exciting and intriguing, trying to navigate betrayals and work out the truths from the lies. Definitely my kind of series, and I cannot go past a Ms. Natusch book either. But...there wasn't much action, I love me some sword fights, and there was hardly any *cries*. I need the next book now because I can tell that whole book was one huge buildup to an epic third one *Grabby hands*. 

Rating: 4/5
