The Underground City: Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.…
Lily Harper narrowly survived her first mission as a Soul Retriever in the first level of the Underground City. After that harrowing trip, she wants nothing more than some downtime, but as with most things involving the afterlife, nothing ever quite works out the way Lily wants it to. Her newest mission will see her traveling to the sewer aqueduct of the Underground City and later, the prison. But, luckily for Lily, she’s got the hunky yet antisocial bladesmith Tallis Black by her side. And quite possibly unluckily for her, she’s also got her guardian angel, Bill, who’s up to his old, foul-mouthed antics. Between learning how to wield her sword, personal training with a hot-headed demon, traveling to the Underground City not one but two times, and discovering that the leader of the Underground City harbors a curious fascination with her, Lily’s hope was abandoned a long time ago.

I liked it except for 1 thing...
Just like with book 1, I enjoyed the story and the narration wasn't bad. The biggest problem I had was the "to be continued...". That is one thing that never sits well with me in books. I understand having to separate the story into separate books to make a series, but give me a bit of closure before ending it. I hate feeling like I am in the middle of a conversation that 1 party just up and walked away from. Needless to say, that won't stop me from trying book 3. I just hope the pattern doesn't continue.

I liked this one more than the first one.
I am very interested in where Lily and Tallis are going in the next books. I hope she can help him get out of his doldrums and back to enjoying life. I still can't stand Bill's inappropriate remarks. I just ignore them. I know most readers love him, I just find him too demeaning to women.

Fabulous story let down by narration
What did you like most about The Underground City?
I love the sassy, flawed characters.
What did you like best about this story?
The angel, Bill is hilariously written. Much more "out there" than previous HP Mallory characters. I am loving this series. The tension between Lily and Talis is great, too.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The narrator is perfect for Lily, but it all goes out the window when she does accents. Talis's accent is dreadful. She can't decide between Scottish and Irish and somehow swings between the two - often in the one sentence. It's distracting.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I can't wait for more! (But a better narrator would be a good idea too)
