From the Inside Flap

     "Mason, Mason, Mason," Skylar panicked.
     "I know. Skylar, hold on tight. I'm going to brake."
     "But...but there are cars behind us."
     "We have no choice. Don't worry. I got this." Pushing down on the brake pedal forcefully, the car hydroplaned to the right. "Hold on," Mason yelled. Skylar gripped the first thing she could place her hand on tightly. The water from the road jetted up into the air like a water show, but the car kept gliding sideways, until finally it spun a full circle and stopped. With no time to waste, Mason turned the car toward the right and accelerated, hoping to dodge what was coming toward them.
     Out of nowhere, a long piece of ice, taking the form of a spear-like shape, darted through the trucks' tires and punctured some of them. More ice spears came soaring out of the rain, but this time, ten or more sphere like ice balls followed, denting the sides of the trucks, and one went through a windshield. With flat tires, the trucks now glided as if on ice, maneuvering from side to side.
     "Did you do that?" Skylar asked excitedly.
     "No...must be Poseidon's kids. Where the hell are they?" Mason spread his right arm in front of Skylar, as if to protect her. "Bend down, Sky."
     One of the trucks hit another and swirled, hitting the other adjacent to it. The crash caused the trucks to flip and tumble, heading straight for Mason's car. With a look of shock, Skylar held her breath. With no time to move, think, or get out of the car, she closed her eyes and prepared for the crash.
     Just seconds before the impact, Mason's car flew up into the air, over the trucks. Somehow, magically, the water created a liquid bridge, guiding the car safely over, and then it thumped hard on the ground on the other side. Without looking back, Mason sped away as the sound of screeching brakes and metal impacting on metal blasted behind them.
     "What just happened?" Skylar yelped. "Did you do that?" Everything had happened so fast, and adrenalin had flushed through her body so rapidly, she'd had no time for fear. Now that it was over, she was simply amazed, stunned; there were no words.
     "No, I didn't. Poseidon's kids...it's the only explanation. They can manipulate water. I had it handled. There was no need for them to show off. Now many civilians are hurt." Mason sounded irritated, perhaps because he wasn't the hero this time around, or perhaps he truly did care for those people he didn't know.
     Amazed by their abilities, wherever they were, Skylar was grateful they were there. Though Mason spoke as though he'd had the situation handled, Skylar thought otherwise, but kept her opinion to herself.  
     Looking behind them, she could see fire and heavy smoke escalating to the sky. The trucks had mostly slammed against each other, except for one. Guilt consumed her, thinking about the poor, innocent people who'd happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. But her remorse was soon forgotten when she saw the same white truck, and now a black truck tailing behind them.            "It's the white truck again, but there's another one behind it."
     "I see them," Mason said with a sly tone, looking in the rearview mirror. "Let's see if they can follow."

'I have received an ARC from the author in return of an honest review.'

OMLightning bolts! Mary Ting has done it again. I have to say that I absolutely love everything about this book from the heart wrenching prologue to the cliff-hanger of an epilogue. It takes Greek mythology to a whole other level and then some. Try to imagine what it would be like in this modern day to be a demi-God and have to keep it a secret. Only thing is one person can't be charmed to keep secrets and you can't figure out why; all the while being chased by freakishly strong and scary creatures that want you and everyone else close to you dead. That's what you'll experience while reading this exciting new page turner of a story, 'From God's' by Mary Ting. It has action, adventure, humor, twists and turns, romance and heart-break....it has it all. If you haven't read it yet then hurry up and get it now...you won't regret it. I'm just waiting for it to come out on the big screen. Job well done Mary Ting!

INITIAL THOUGHTS
I'm slightly worried as I pick up my kindle to read this, I mean I loved the Crossroads Saga, will I like this too? Will it be as good? My thoughts at 14% "Liking this already" Then at 51% my thoughts were "Definitely warming to the characters of Kayla, Skylar & Mason (loved those two from the beginning of the book) and Nick too. What on earth or descended from heaven is Skylar?

MY REVIEW
So the story is that Skylar's dad walked out of her life when she was very young, her mother prefers to not speak about him so he is somewhat of a taboo subject. Skylar hates to be reminded of him so no one call's her Sky anymore as that's what he always called her. So Skylar is going to her Aunt Kelly's to be with her cousin Kayla for the summer break. Upon arriving at aunt Kelly's she learns that her aunt is short of waitresses at the cafe/diner she owns, so Kayla has been coerced into working at the diner. Skylar immediately volunteers to help out too, as she would just be stuck alone otherwise, plus she is the kind of girl that would want to help out her family too. Both girls get really into working at the diner and get along with Jack the cook, and Mona the other waitress. Then of course they see some good looking guys. I'll let you discover how they meet etc by reading the book, as I prefer not to give too much detail. Anyhow it turns out the gorgeous "brothers" Mason, Nick, Remus & Everett are quite different to other guys as they are in fact descendants from the Gods. They seem puzzled by Skylar and they think she too could be a descendant from the Gods when Hades Vultures go after her too. However she turns out to be something quite dangerous to the Grand brothers. In fact she quite accidentally kills one of them when he attacks her.

This was just the jolt I needed! Mary Ting offers us mythology fans her own electrifying spin on Demi-God Greatness filled with suspense, comedy, romance, & mystery! I am officially a From Gods' Fan!! Can. Not. Wait. For. More.
I appreciate that this was NOT a classic fairy tale where the characters immediately fall in love & live happily ever after. Of course on the "last page" I wanted to tear up wondering how long we would have to wait for the next book...but I was overjoyed when I realized there was an Epilogue!!! That was the perfect ending! I love these characters, & will be ready & waiting for the next book in this series!

I received a complimentary copy provided by author/publisher for an honest review of Mary Ting's From Gods and I'm so glad I did.

This book is a different genre then the Crossroad's Saga Series she's known for.
It is "electric" as it blends paranormal romance, mythology (which I love), action and suspense together for an amazing read.

Skylar Rome wants to spend the summer with her cousin, Kayla before heading off to college in the fall. Her path crosses with Mason Grand and his brothers. From that moment on strange events start happening that she can't explain but swoon worthy Mason is always there to save the day. Skylar's attraction to him is like she's been hit by lightning. Could it be because he's a descendant of Zeus?

This book is definitely a page turner and I couldn't wait to see what happened next. All I can say is Mary Ting you've done it again! This book exceeded my expectations, I was literally blown away. My question is how long do I have to wait for the sequel?

I hate giving bad reviews, but I bought this book because one of the reviews said it was a great mythology read and it had a lot of high ratings. I was extremely disappointed with this book. I got about halfway and couldn't stand to read anymore of it.

I have been a huge fan of books with mythology ever since I started reading the Percy Jackson series in 4th grade (I am now a college student). I thought this book would go along with mythology a little more than it did. The only mythology that was in this book is that some of the characters were descendants of the gods and apparently one of the fates doubles as an oracle.

I found the main character to be extremely immature and annoying for her age. She acted more like my 13 year old niece than the soon to be college student she was. The romance between her and the main guy didn't draw me in at all; it had no depth. It seemed like every chapter had a moment where he touched her and she was shocked and drawn to him without explanation. It was used so much it got old fast.

Slight SPOILER AHEAD!!!
...................................................................
One of the big turn offs for me was when one of the brothers got turned to dust. He was an ass that was practically going to rape her and what happened was out of her control, but what happened after was a moment were I went what? She killed his brother accidentally, ran out, and hid at home. I get that part, but him coming home and finding out the dust on his floor was his brother and then cleaning it up was the part I didn't get. Then he practically said I don't care that he's dead I wasn't close to him anyway we were only half siblings, and don't say anything to my other brothers they might get upset. There was no emotion of any sort from him.
..........................................................

I stopped reading a few chapters later because I couldn't stomach it anymore.
