Ancient gods. Modern times.
Fifteen-year-old Therese watches her parents die. While in a coma, she meets the twin sons of Hades—Hypnos (the god of sleep) and Thanatos (the god of death). She thinks she's manipulating a dream, not kissing the god of death and totally rocking his world.
Than makes a deal with Hades and goes as a mortal to the Upperworld to try and win Therese's heart, but not all the gods are happy. Some give her gifts. Others try to kill her.
The deal requires Therese to avenge the death of her parents. With the help of Than’s fierce and exotic sisters, the Furies, she finds herself in an arena face to face with the murderer, and only one will survive.
I thought most of the mythology was correct. Thanatos and Hypnos, although, were not children of Persephone and Hades. They were the children of Nyx and Erebus. Other than that, nothing else seemed to be wrong. I couldn’t put down this book and really recommend it.
Not my cup of Tea
Was hard for me to get into this one.
Eva Pohler puts a new spin on Greek Gods in this light and entertaining novel. While other stories might make the gods seems harsh, overly powerful and destructive, this book seems to make you feel like the gods could be one of your best friends. I missed an overall feeling of suspense throughout the book, although the ending made up for that feeling with a very imaginative battle scene. The love story is good, and the action overall is a little slow for my taste, but the characters are likable. Definitely worth reading!
