For those of us that are a bit rusty on our greek mythology, this book works very hard to help jog our memory of whose who and how they fit into the challenge facing the Greek Gods and how that works with the relationship developing between Finn and Raven. A secondary bonus to this whole book was the fabulous character of Dee, Finn's Grandma!!! Fingers crossed we'll get to see more of her as well!!
I loved that this book is set in Kauai, and so much of the action is saturated with Hawaiian culture and lifestyle. (I could see the beautiful sunsets.) And I appreciated that Finn’s mission involves saving endangered species. The author clearly has done her homework.
What gave me less satisfaction is that much of the drama between the lovers occurs because of misunderstandings between people who are too guarded or too proud to simply talk to each other. I wanted, expected, that more of the romance would turn on obstacles thrown up by the fantasy elements.
But what really limited my satisfaction were formatting and editing issues. First, I really wanted to submerge into the characters and scenery (What’s not to love about Hawaii and Greek gods?) but an issue with paragraphing kept me wondering on each page just who was speaking. Maybe it’s just a glitch in the Kindle version, but editing should have caught it.
Second, the prologue: It’s too long and confusing and makes no sense until the relevant incidents happen in the story. Most of it, in fact, sets up the series rather than this one book.
Third, there was a point at Chapter 18 where I stopped cold and had to re-read a chapter twice because something momentous happened and the characters’ expected reactions didn’t materialize. Possibly something was cut that shouldn’t have been. I was confused.
Overall, this book should satisfy those who love romances with rock stars, Seattle and Hawaiian locations, endangered species, and guest appearances by ancient Greek gods.
