The Hybrid (Book one in The Hybrid Series) by Venus Morales is a thrilling YA fantasy supernatural read! The story follows a strong-willed and likeable heroine named Ari (daughter of Ares, the god of war). Ari spends much of her life in secret and, upon her 18th birthday, she is allowed to venture into the mortal world. She meets an intriguing archangel named Julius, who is much more than he initially seems. Ari's had other things to worry about though, as her inner darkness is continually struggling to take over. Over the course of this exhilarating story, Ari must fight and resist her inner demons, try to figure out what Julius is really up to, uncover dark secrets about her past, as well as prepare for the seven days of trials in order to claim her rightful crown. Whew! Good thing Ari is a kick-butt, strong willed, never-back-down type of girl, otherwise achieving all that might be hard.

I found The Hybrid to be an exciting and action-packed story. Ari is a likeable and realistic protagonist. I really enjoyed her relationship with her best friend (their banter was realistic and hilarious at times) and her interactions with Julius were always a treat to read. The author's overall idea (the daughter of the god of war) was a unique take in an over-saturated supernatural genre book market. The book features a strong and engaging cast of characters, and the author's descriptions of the surrounding world and settings really draw the reader in. Fans of YA, paranormal, supernatural and action genres are sure to find a new favorite author in Venus Morales.

*I received a free ebook version of this book from XpressoBookTours in exchange for an honest review.

The Hybrid is full of demons, arch angels, gods and goddesses, and vampires. It’s all supernatural, love, growth, and bravery. It’s about Ari fighting her Darkness only for both sides of her to come together and fall in love.

What I Like:
-I like how Ares and Hera were actually involved in the story, not just mentioned. Especially Hera and Ily’s friendship; it’s light and fun and I enjoyed the fact that they bond over fashion.
-There were some pretty great characters; Vera, Ily, Ares, Hera, and Julius. Vera was supportive and a great person to have on Ari’s side; Ily, Ares, and Hera protective; Julius strong, confident, protective and loving.
-It was a pretty interesting plot line, with Arch Angels, Vampires, Gods and Demons. The action was pretty good too, considering all the different powers and all.
-The flow of the writing was consistent and despite the problems I had, I just had to keep reading.

What I Don’t Like:
-Info dump right at the beginning. We were told practically right away that Ari was a Phoenacian Princess (which means she’s part vampire), and daughter to Ares, the God of war; Ily a Vampire Queen, and Julius an Arch Angel. I can see how it would work for the story, but at the same time I feel the story would’ve flowed better if we hadn’t been told right away.
-Alaris is immediately described as a dangerous bad boy in Ari’s mind. I mean, he’s the Dark Prince, so obviously he isn’t the nicest person around, but to be a bad boy? Alaris, to me, seems like he should be more serious and brooding, considering he is the Dark Prince. I mean, who wants a petulant, bratty young man to be your ruler?

The concept of this book is definitely a new one. There is a Deity, Deamonons, Phoenicians, Vampires and Greek Gods. The mix of all of those items is what interested me in the first place. The characters of Ari/her dark half, Ily, Julius, Alaris, Hera and Ares helped to keep me interested.

Where I have the issue or bit of disappointment is the resolve of certain items. It all came to quickly for my liking and I think it could have really played out more to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. The resolve of her dark half, of the "love triangle", of the trial for her coven, all just happened too fast.

While I know there is a book 2 and there are unresolved items still out there, and I'm sure new ones are on the way, I feel like some opportunities were missed to make this story even more exciting.

OMG!!!!!! Just finished another great read and had to share it with all of you! I was contacted on Goodreads by an author who needed reviews for her book and i jumped at the chance! She expressed with me that it isnt like most Young Adult/Fantasy/Supernatural book and i thought, "Okay, I can roll with this!" And roll I did ladies and gentlemen! Hybrid By Venus Morales was a great read! Perfect for all mythology fans!

*Synopsis*

Ari is the daughter of Ares, the God of War. Half goddess and half Phoenician, she is raised by her father in secrecy until her 18th birthday, when he is forced to return to Olympus.
She chooses not follow her father, and decides to venture out into the mortal realm. There, Ari crosses paths with the archangel Julius, who bears a message from a seer. Ari must return to the Bayou to her late mother's coven to regain her family crown, she is soon fighting for more than just the crown; she is fighting for her life, and the inner darkness that's consuming her.
With 7 days to prepare for her trials and 7 days to fight for her life, Ari does the one thing she must do to survive; she forges herself into the weapon she was born to be.
What wouldn't you do to save those you love? How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to save the mortal realm, the heavens and Olympus?

So my absolute favorite part of this book is how relatable Venus makes the main character! Ari is logical and realistic and it is so hard to find characters like that in books these days! I know people will find it hard to believe that a paranormal book or its characters can be realistic but Venus makes it happen! I laughed quite a bit through this book and wanted to cry when it was over because, well, it was over!

I received a complimentary copy of The hybrid in exchange for an honest review.

Wow! Talking about one very interesting story. The moment I read the blurb I knew immediately that I have to read this book! The Hybrid is a story about Ari - the daughter of the Greek God of War Ares and a Phoenacian queen. Phoenacians are vampire-like creatures who can control fire and have dark versions of themselves inside their body, drk versions who can control their body if they don't control them first.

The book is about Ari's struggles as she get to know more about herself, her past and about the people around her - especially the archangel Julius, who was sent by his seer mother to be with her. The book is on Ari's POV and on the third-person's perspective. This suits me fine because I also wanted to know how Julius and the other characters think.

I liked all the characters in the book. Ari is a strong woman - although I found her a bit emotional in the middle part of the book. I think Ari's chharacter was really cool. But I especially liked Ily and Hera. I just love how funny Ily was. Put her in a scene with Hera and they're just plain entertaining. Hera was a complete opposite of how she is presented in Greek mythology. She was very likable in this book.

Story-wise, The Hybrid is a unique and refreshing take on Fantasy. Greek myth mixed with Christianity, and other lores made a very interesting story. Romance-wise, it was sweet but I wanted something hotter and steamier. I don't want to classify this for Young Adults because of the story but the romance is definitely okay for YA.

I'm giving The Hybrid 4 Fairy Wings. I love the unique plot and the interesting characters so I will definitely read the next book/s in the series. I'm recommending the book to Urban Fantasy readers and to Young Adult readers who also love to read paranormal and fantasy books.
