Hades and Zeus have fallen in love with the same girl: Hartley. She is tied to the Underworld in a way explained in the previous books, and I'm going to have go back and find out for myself what that's all about, but the author does a decent job of bringing everyone up to speed. Hades and Zeus have real world alter egos: Hayden and Zeke. Zeke (Zeus) makes a deal with Hecate that Hartley can lead a normal life, but only if Hayden forgets about her, and vice versa.
I don't normally read mythological romance, but I found myself enjoying this book. I loved the Percy Jackson books, and at times, this felt like a grown-up version of those. There are nice little touches throughout of the gods trying to blend in with the real world, such as Hermes wearing Chuck Taylor's, and all of them having to rely on cell phones.
One thing that I could suggest for the author next time is more pith in the character descriptions. They were good, but leave a little more to the reader's imagination. That might just be a personal preference, but it is my review, after all.
I can honestly recommend Dark Prophecy, even if you haven't read any of the other books in the series. The mythology adds a nice layer to the love triangle that takes it out of the tried-and-true realms that so much YA falls into. Well done, Ms. Colon.
It's supposed to be him, not his brother Hades that gets the girl. Hades is supposed to be out of the picture. Hartley never died, never went to the underworld. She's whole. And she falls for Zeus, Zeke as she knows him.
But spells have consequences and ghosts overrun the town, attracting the attention of Hades. When he comes to town, the game is changed and the new world begins to unravel. It isn't real, but what is? Will Hartley and Hayden be able to find each other when they can't remember each other?
I loved this book, but I had one major problem with it. I couldn't stand Hartley. Before, when she'd been shallow and superficial, it'd been made clear that she was faking it. Now it was who she was. She has an ego the size of mount Everest and there isn't enough sweetness to cover that up.
What does help, is that Hayden is sweet and perfect (when he isn't playing their game).
I can't wait to read the final book. This series is fantastic.
