I love this book. Seriously the only thing I hated was that it had to end and I have to wait another year to find out what happens next. Most of the first book focused on Grace and Gretchen with Greer being introduced toward the end, so having that third voice prominently featured rounded out the story and everything came together beautifully. I think Greer was my favorite sister. I like how Childs has these seemingly same sisters with drastically diverse personalities. I think it's really smart of the author to showcase the differences in each heroine's life and how their families helped to shape the girls. Childs put just as much care into her male character's as well. Milo's cute, Nick is interesting, yet Thane steals the spotlight for the guys. His character is intriguing and a big reason I want that next book now.
The plot was great, readers will get a better understanding of the girls' destiny, get a taste of what they're really up against, and learn that things aren't so black and white when it comes to the fate of the abyss. I love where the series is going. The world building was fantastic. Childs lets us into her abyss as well with her descriptive landscape and creatures.Read more ›
Now that the three sisters, triplets separated at birth, have found one another, it seems as though nothing is normal about their lives. Even Gretchen, whose life trained as a huntress was far from "normal" to begin with, longs for the easy days of training and hunting in between occasionally going to school. Now the girls are embroiled in a life altering decision that they barely understand: the prophecy. As the Key Generation, they are going to be responsible for either opening the door from the abyss to the human world which will unleash all monsters upon humans or closing the door forever, which, as it turns out, isn't such a clear win/win.
Without Medusa's sisters, who have guided them disguised as mortals for years, and the oracle to confide in, the girls are struggling to decide which direction is best and who to trust. This becomes incredibly more challenging when they learn one faction wants them dead to keep the portal from opening and one wants them to open the portal and then kill them to keep it opened. Feeling like there is no place to run and an impossible decision to make, the girls find themselves torn in different directions. Grace knows something is going on with her brother Thane and her usually rock-solid relationship with her parents is being threatened. Gretchen finally allows herself to start liking a boy only to watch him sucked into the abyss and chooses to go tumbling after him where she learns more about the "monsters" she has been fighting all these years.Read more ›
