When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies. So when teen pop star Eden croaks onstage and Kaylee doesn't wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can't cry for someone who has no soul. The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad's ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend's loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld-a consequence they can't possibly understand. Kaylee can't let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk...

Kaylee is back, and this time she's got a new problem. Addison, a famous pop star is set to die in 7 days, the problem is she's not currently in possession of her soul - she sold it for fame and fortune.
Tod used to date Addison though, and he wants to save her, or more importantly, save her soul.
It's not going to be easy though, they need to not only find the demon that took Addison's soul, they need to convince it to give it back.
How do you compromise with a demon though? Is Kaylee strong enough to make it in the netherworld? And will they get Addison's soul back in time?
This was an okay read, I just didn't get why Kaylee was so intent on saving Addison's soul when she meant nothing to her.
That sounds pretty bad, but at the end of the day it was Addison's decision to sell her soul, and she just came across as pretty naïve and selfish - I mean, what did she think a hellion would do with her eternal soul? She wasn't even that involved with getting it back either - she just expected Kaylee, Nash and Tod to do it for her!
Kaylee was just too nice in this book. She was so easily swayed by Tod, and talked into trying to rescue Addison's soul, when it wasn't her problem, and it involved putting her own life at risk to do it. I totally got where Nash was coming from when he tried to talk her out of it, I would have tried to talk her out of it too.
There was a small amount of romance in this story, although not that much, and every time Nash and Kaylee were alone together Tod just seemed to pop up and ruin things, which was a bit annoying.
The storyline was okay, although again I wasn't sure why the hell Kaylee was suddenly so obsessed about finding this other girl's soul when she had no-one to blame but herself for selling it to a hellion! The fact that Kaylee's dad kept putting restrictions on her and grounding her was annoying too.
There were some interesting touches to the story, like how Addison's eyes were all white because she had no soul, and the way the plants behaved in the netherworld etc. but overall this was only okay for me.
Overall; an okay sequel, but a little difficult to believe.
6.5 out of 10.
