If true, the rebellion forming in the underworld needed to be dealt with swiftly and his soul found.
She hated not being able to read his mind and see his thoughts, the way she had for the thousands of years they served the underworld together.
You can't rule the underworld if you have a soul.
She remembered what caused the dome of her underworld to crack.
Past-Death, the original Deidre, felt no different until she stepped into the apartment she visited once before leaving her underworld in the hands of Gabriel.
More importantly, the underworld accepted his appointment.
If what Tymkyn learned was true, the underworld itself was at war.
How could you ever think you'd rule the underworld, if you didn't take it seriously?
Lost souls, shut out of the underworld, was the greatest nightmare for Death.
The underworld was cracked when she left; that much she remembered.
Perhaps when she lost her soul at the end of the week or maybe, if she could help him recover his underworld, she'd tell Gabriel then.
The souls crossed over into mortal lakes, after the dome of her underworld cracked, and she resigned.
It didn't respond like the ones in her underworld would.
The Lake of Souls in her underworld was always still.
What if the lake cracked, too, and the souls went the other way, out of the underworld and into the mortal realm?
You act like you've been shut out of your underworld or your mate made a deal with Darkyn and turned into someone else.
It was about Katie, when she was in the underworld and you didn't know she was alive, Gabriel clarified.
I've got a handle on things, but the underworld is still closed to me.
Granted, he was Death, and she was offering a partnership running the underworld instead of deferring to him in his role in charge of the underworld.
"You made me choose between you and doing what was right in the underworld when I saved Katie and her daughter," he continued.
How is a sociopathic deity better at ruling the underworld than a compassionate human? he returned with no heat.
What if he couldn't have been with her unless he gave up his underworld and power?
They could've both gone somewhere else entirely, wherever they wanted to go, without the underworld crumbling or the pain Gabriel was in.
"To discuss how you are assisting my death-dealers get into and out of my underworld," Gabriel replied, changing the subject.
To complicate matters, he had no idea what shape the underworld was in, if the reports Landon received were correct.
Verify there is a portal through Hell to our underworld, Gabriel instructed Landon.
Landon's grim expression was enough to tell Gabriel the route to the underworld was there.
"If you have any desire to address the rebellion in the underworld, you know how to summon me," Darkyn said with a cunning smile.
Fate's mention of him gaining access to the underworld made Gabriel wonder if the deity was referring to Darkyn's mate.
His soul, the underworld, rebellion … everything that mattered didn't when he considered how the mighty Death hadn't been able to save one innocent human from a dark fate.
Their attempt to dig a hole to the underworld failed, but at least they'd stemmed the flow of souls.
"I will destroy you and your underworld and anything else between," Darkyn growled.
"Permission to traverse Hell to get to the underworld," Gabriel said without hesitation.
At the same time, he couldn't jeopardize the underworld more.
Andre can track demons in the underworld, right?
When you come to the underworld, tell the trees to take you to me.
Whatever happened next, Gabriel prayed the underworld didn't throw him out.
It was going to be hard, maybe even harder than finding his soul in the underworld, but the opportunity was theirs for the taking.
In the underworld where she spent almost her entire life, there were two suns and two moons.
"The dealers in the underworld are rebelling," Tymkyn said.
"How bad is it in the underworld?" he asked.
How did Gabriel get souls back to the underworld if he wasn't allowed there?
Gabriel bristled at the reminder that his own underworld had shut him out.
Tymkyn, the best tracker in the underworld, stood behind him, hands clasped and chest heaving.
The portal to his underworld was grey; only yellow mortal portals and the black one to Hell were visible.
The underworld would open for him, when he'd conquered his challenges here in the human realm.
