Read this book!!
on November 19, 2014
Oh my goodness, this is an amazing book. If you like Greek Mythology, like I do, this is a must read. Strickland wonderfully incorporates the Greek gods into the modern world, as well as the personalities of their reincarnations.
I have to admit that when I first got this book I was a bit worried that it would just be a Percy Jackson spin off. However, Strickland quickly erased that fear. Despite having the same source material, this book is very unique and creates its own world. And I absolutely love the quotes and poems at the beginning of each chapter. It gives you little hints as to which god or goddess will be the center of the chapter.
One of my favorite parts is the characters themselves. Strickland gives them new twists that make perfect sense while still staying a surprise. I also love the conflict within and between the characters. Are the acts that they did in Ancient Greece still theirs, or are they new people?
All in all, I loved this book, and you should definitely read it!
