Alex is ready to take on the need for vengence that her Fury half demands. And she's ready to to be in love with the man she met in the first book. But is Boston ready for a Fury's vengence and Fury scorned?
The background mythos was delivered in a smoother manner in this book than in book one and flowed into the story quite well.
I wavered between 3 and 4 stars on this one.
If I read the book on its own, and not part of the series it is a 4 star book. But there were some things that felt inconsistant from book one. But I still want to continue the series to see what happens next.
This book is definitely one that was able to hold my attention when I wasn't caught up in health problems. I definitely look forward to reading the 3rd book when I can afford it.
This book had great character and world building. I could view the characters, and world perfectly without flaw. This book was also completely unpredictable. So many twists and turns that I never knew what would come next. There were plenty of shockers that would have me saying (WHAT?) loud enough for people to turn their head and look at me like I was crazy. These shockers of coarse kept me entertained and wanting to read more of the book. When I got to the end I couldn't wait to read the third book. The second book has been completely entertaining!
Alex houses the fury of jealousy and that is one way you do not want to get her riled up, because as the saying goes hell hath no fury..... She is the brazen one of the group and while most see only the mask few see what she is like behind it so when the one man who seems to understand her seems to have betrayed her, well things certainly do get more interesting.
Big and silent there not much we got to see about Ty in the previous book, but now we get a glimpse of just how intense he can be. And when it comes to Alex the sparks really fly!!!
Learning more about the Greek gods and seeing more of them come into the storyline you never know what will happen next or what surprises will come up. Who is on their side might not always be clear but it certainly is quite a trip!
Loved this one and can't wait to see even more!
I have some mixed feelings about this book, but overall it is a good book.
Did it blow my socks off? No. But was it interesting enough to keep my attention for the entire book? Absolutely.
The thing is I'm not usually into Greek myths with gods and goddesses, especially with my religion clashing against every grain of its Greek and Roman core, but I did find the concept interesting, to say the least. The fact that goddesses needed a human host to support their powers I found very interesting. I mean, how powerful could this goddess be if it needed a human host?
It turns out very powerful.
Anyway, I think I'll list the positives of what I liked about this book then the negatives.
1. The cover is gorgeous and intriuging. It definitely caught my interested along with the blurb. It was very interesting. I still didn't know about the Greek myth roots, but that could have been me skimming through the blurb.
2. The Three Musketeers: Tara, Rachel and Alex. I believed in their friendship and enjoyed the balance of the brains, the brawn and beauty. Very interesting to see them interact with each other. I loved Alex and her relationship with her fury. It seemed as if she was an older sister that guided her through the whole thing.
3. The plot at the end of the day kept me reading. When the author hit the big plot points, I was riveted. And in the beginning of the book, she definitely caught and kept my attention.
1. The relationship between Ty and Alex. I couldn't buy it and I don't really like them together. Their chemistry felt forced and rushed. I think I understand where the author was going with their relationship but I still didn't like it or believe that they honestly have a deeper connection other than screwing buddies.
There were times that the author failed in giving us a deeper insight into their relationship. We weren't privy to half of their deeper conversations (the apology, the walk in the park, and etc), so why would I want for them to be together?
Then Alex and Ty acted like children arguing over a toy at recess at times. Ty was the bigger man in the relationship and clearly apologized for his behavior, but Alex? She still has the immaturity that I hope the author fully deals with. Alex never apologizes for her actions at the strip club (I won't spoil it for you, but it's the biggest mess that Alex caused for the most part), even at the end of the book!
In order for a romance relationship (even a steamy one like Ty and Alex), there has to be a connection made through communication. A hot guy can stare me down at the club, but if we never speak to each other . . . Then the romance or the potential romance dies between us. Will I remember him? Oh heck yes! But will I fall in love with him? No, because we never talked to each other and made that initial connection nor did we fight to keep it.
All I felt from Ty and Alex was the itch to have sex. That was pretty much it. I will give the author credit, the gym scene was pretty hot, but there could have been so much more here to uncover between the two of them. They could have at least talked to each other like adults (and not like children!).
2. The plot. At times, the plot felt fast paced and energetic. At other times, I felt like we were just slogging through it. There was even a moment when the side character (Venus) admitted that it took FOREVER for Alex to figure out what was going on.
If that isn't the biggest hint that the plot suffered from too much running around, then I don't know what is.
I think the author was trying to build suspense, but it fell flat for me. I felt like the ending took forever too. We had to run around and get the right amount of gods to get the right results. Really? Couldn't they just have split up and got them all at once?
The pacing was completely off for me. Too much of the budding "screw buddy" romance and not enough of the main conflict. If you are going to have the romance in there, make it count. Like make me believe that they belong together.
I also didn't believe the ending twist with Ty nor was it ever explained adequately. The author never explained the drugged part with the main enemy either. I don't want to give too much away, but it all seemed a bit . . . Rough. Either the author forgot about the initial turn of the story (highly unlikely) or she forgot to explain why Ty was acting very unusual during that turn of the story (more than likely). I was trying to finish the book to get that explanation . . . I guess I'll need to ask the author. Sigh.
3. Typos. There were quite a few typos in the book, especially punctuation. A person can count on one hand the amount of times I count typos in my reviews. Why?
Because I don't normally see them. I know, an English teacher who actually doesn't see typos as much as the next person. Who knew?
The thing is, I did notice which is a tick against the author. It seemed like in every so often in the dialogue, the author forget an ending punctuation mark which is really weird.
But I digress to my pet peeves. These aren't really deal breakers, but they really annoyed me.
All of the hot male characters have accents. I know that sounds like a dreamboat for most women, but I kept getting their accents confused and I'm from the south. I visited New Orleans and I love Gambit, but for some reason, I literally kept tripping over Ty's accent. Then I kept messing up the other guys accent.
2. Too many characters
Now, I will admit: This was partially my fault. I didn't read the first book or read the blurb carefully enough (maybe), but it took me half of the book to get the names down pat. I just kept mixing up Nora with Tara and Ruby and Hester and etc.
And don't even get me started on the enemy and Greek myths part which was confusing as crap.
3. Hester's explanation.
The author literally explain how Hester works three or four seperate times in the novel. Like every time she showed up, the author explained it.
Yeah, I got it the first couple of times. Sheesh. And not to mention, she wasn't even IMPORTANT to the main plot! So why on God's green earth would we spend pages explaining Hester if she really didn't matter?
She only showed up like three times then bailed at the last moment! Like what in the world! What was the point of drilling it in my head that Hester is a witch, then leaving her out completely for the finale?!
Final Thoughts: If you like Greek myths and read the first book, read this book. If you're like me and not the biggest fan of Greek myths, then I wouldn't recommend it. Overall, I give it a 3.75. It could have been SO MUCH BETTER, but it fell short due to a number of problems.
