From Author E.D. Walker
A YA heroine who doesn’t take crap from anyone, a conflicted hero learning for the first time in thousands of years how to do the right thing, and a Battle Royale between two ancient supernatural pantheons.
“Heir to the Underworld” by E.D. Walker is a YA fantasy romance for people who like their heroines strong, their heroes angsty, and their gods meddlesome in the worst possible way.
Night Owl Reviews had this to say about “Heir to the Underworld”:
“I really enjoyed this book…All the characters are funny and real, and both of our protagonists get their own say. Freddy, despite her odd name, is very relatable and genuine; you never get the feeling that she shows any emotion that would not be completely justified for any of the odd situations she seems to find herself in. She’s strong and persistent, yet she is always just a (relatively normal) 16-year-old girl.”

Feisty Frederica Fitzgerald is one day shy of her sweet sixteen when she’s nearly run over by a tall, dark dreamboat on a big black horse. Freddy can deal with the running over part—no harm done. The problem is the rider, Mr. Sex Bomb himself: Polydegmon, son of Hades and heir to the Greek Underworld.
Freddy’s hooked on Polydegmon from the start (although dude, togas went out of style several thousand years ago), being near him is enough to make her tingle down to her toes. But he’s got secrets he isn’t sharing, and trouble follows him closer than his own shadow: rabid dogs running around the suburbs, insane crows stalking Freddy and, worst of all, the feral fairies of the Wild Hunt trolling her hometown for their next bit of human game.
The closer Freddy gets to Deg, the weirder her life becomes, until Freddy discovers something about her own past that changes everything she ever thought she knew about herself. And her world…

Everything falls to pieces when they learn the thieves they’re dealing with are much more than they appear.
