More About the Author

Jill D. Hidy was born in Oceanside, California but relocated to Southern Oregon as a small child. She grew up with a passion for writing but as a single mother with a demanding career, she never quite found the time to write. In 2010 that all changed when she finally wrote and released her first book, "The Old World," followed by the much anticipated sequel "Birthright." Amongst other projects, Jill is currently working on the third book in the series which will be released in spring 2012.

I got this book with the idea that it was about fantasy and magic, but a quarter of the way into the book it changed into a soppy teenage drama. I might have misread the book description when I bought it. It was focused mostly on teenage angst and drama rather than actual magic/fantasy. Aria discovers that she's the prophesied chosen one who has unimaginable powers. The beginning was interesting but once she meets the perfect Xander (think Edward from Twilight), its all drama and teenage mood swings. A total disappointment. I give a two star rating since atleast the beginning was mildly interesting.

Through a portal in Greece is the old world where gods and goddesses exist, a world where conservative-minded Aria is offered a refuge after the death of her parents. Once there she begins a metamorphosis of sorts, discovering secrets long hidden with a family she never knew existed and finds a love she never expected. But soon she's thrust into warring families and betrayal. If she is to survive in this world with her heart intact she will need to figure out friend from foe and make choices that might weigh love over family. The Old World will definitely resonate with any readers of fantasy and romance who seek that perfect balance of escape. The second book of the series is already out and I cannot wait to start reading book two, Birthright.

I loved the creativity of the book. I loved the romance and the idea of soulmates. I loved all the characters. The only thing is it took me a while to get into the book, but once I did I was into it completely. I also didn't want the book to end. Will there be a part two? I would really like to continue reading more about this world. Great job to the author!

I have now read this book twice because i love the mixture of fantasy and real life that the author put into the book, and i think that almost anyone can relate to the characters in the book in someways! I cant wait to read the next book and i think that this is a definate must read book for anyone who enjoys non-fiction or reading in general!

Aria the main chika in the story is a well written protagonist. I came to love her and the story. It put a fresh base to old greek myths and was an easy read. I don't remember if there were editorial issues because the story flowed so well that I may have bypassed them without notice.
