★★★★★ - Tiffany
I love a story that takes off on page one and doesn't let you go, not even at the end. There's something for everyone... romance, action, intrigue, fantasy, emotions, and a long list of compelling and interesting characters.

This book was the ending to my read-a-thon President's Day holiday weekend. It gave me such a warm and fuzzy feeling on the inside and like my binky, when I was a toddler, I couldn't let it go. Putting this book down was punishment and I couldn't rest my weary eyes until I've glimpsed every last word.
There were prophesies, destinies, oracles, a chosen one, oppressed people, villains (who weren't afraid to literally "hit" a girl), and Greek mythology with a new spin. This is about the descendents of the Greek gods. Each descendent had a special power based on their ancestors' bloodline. #FreakingAwesome-sauce The only thing I longed for was that kick butt heroine; but Elyse was another kind of creature. She was like Mahatma Gundi or Mother Teresa, who took non-violent approaches. On top of that there was a life or death situation, no scratch that. That implies thrilling suspense. There was a dying situation; and it was slow, drawn out, and completely heart breaking. There was a difficult dilemma. One I don't think I would ever be able to make a decision on; and this forever endeared me to Elyse. Now I want so much to highlight William, but I can't without feeling like I'm coveting Ellie's man. (lol) For hours I sat with Nook propped on my knees, bug eyed eating ju-ju beads...and when the book ended I could have died!
Please, please......I want some more!
This is a book that is based on mythology. Elyse is a descendant of the people who the Ancient Greeks considered Gods. The "Gods" weren't "Gods". They just had abilities and longevity. The people have gone underground and hide themselves and their abilities from humans.
This book begins as Elyse finds out who she is and why she is the way she is. She is in her 80's, but looks like a teen. She can heal. She has a big heart and it has been hard to see the ones she loves die while she lives.
Elyse enters a world of danger and mystery. It is hard to know who to turn to and trust. She is supposed to free her people from oppression, but is a reluctant participant.
This book has romance with some innuendo. There is violence. Innocents are killed so the people in control can prove a point. Some parts can be a little disturbing. This book is the beginning of a mythological war.
This story was a totally enjoyable read and I am already half way through the 2nd in the series, Uprising. The adventure continues....!
I received an ebook copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
